Learn to ride a motorcycle through Road America’s Basic
Rider Course (BRC). This Road America motorcycle class was
designed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) for beginning riders. Learn
how to ride a motorcycle safely in a closed-course environment.
Road America is happy to announce that in conjunction with the
Motorcycle Safety Foundation and Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety
Program, Road America has transitioned to MSF’s newest
curriculum. This revised BRC eliminates the classroom
portion and moves that material into the online e-course.
This allows you to take the online course around your busy
schedule, starting and stopping as needed until completion. You
will also have around 11 hours of motorcycle riding instruction
on one of our state-certified training ranges. Upon
successful completion, students receive a completion card that
allows them to be exempt from the Motorcycle-In-Traffic road
We will also continue offering our popular Ladies
Only courses in 2023.
Price: $295 Includes e-course, training, and
skills test. Specific start and end times are noted in

Customer Satisfaction Promise
The Road America Motorcycle School is designed specifically to
maximize the fun and minimize the risk of motorcycling. With a
pass rate of over 96%, our success rate
is encouraging. However, on occasion, any participant
may have an “off day.” With that in mind, we have created the
Customer Satisfaction Promise. In the event a participant fails
any one of our MSF-designated courses, they will be allowed to
return to retake the full class at a later date for a minimal
rescheduling fee of $100.
Minors participating in the course MUST have a parent’s or legal
guardian’s signature on our Waiver & Indemnification
Form. You can take care of this in advance by having it
signed by the parent or legal guardian AND
NOTARIZED before the class, or a parent or legal
guardian MUST be present at the beginning of the first day of
class to sign the waiver in the presence of a Road America staff
member. No minors will be allowed to participate without
the properly completed and signed waiver.
