Overview

The Road America Motorcycle School is one of the premier training programs for novice, returning and advanced riders in the Midwest. Participants can learn how to ride a motorcycle by choosing from eight different levels of motorcycle training. All motorcycle training courses take place at Road America’s expansive 640-acre venue, which includes five controlled off-street training ranges. Motorcycle and scooter classes, including ladies only options, are available from April through November in a variety of daytime, weekend, and weeknight formats. All courses are designed to maximize the ease of adaptive learning and minimize the risk of riding a motorcycle or scooter. Our staff of highly trained and award-winning instructors comes from diverse backgrounds which include education, law enforcement, and racing disciplines. They have years of riding knowledge and skills to help you learn how to ride a motorcycle or scooter.

For new riders interested in becoming licensed to operate a motorcycle, we have the Basic Rider Course (BRC) which requires approximately 19 total hours of commitment. The course criteria includes a three-hour online e-Course, six hours of classroom instruction, and ten hours of on-range riding lessons. The second option available for new riders seeking a class M endorsement is the Scooter Basic Rider Course (SBRC). The Road America Scooter learn to ride class includes 19 hours of instruction, broken down into six hours of classroom instruction, ten hours of on-range riding lessons, and a 3 hour online e-Course. Tuition for both courses includes the use of a current model year Yamaha motorcycle or scooter.

For returning motorcycle riders we recommend other great courses like the Street Skills Course 1 (SSC1) or the Street Skills Course 2 (SSC2) which both are designed to simulate real-life riding conditions. Another great option is the Road America Dirt Bike Course!
