Scooter Basic Rider


Road America offers you the option of taking one of our scheduled BRC’s (Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic Rider Course) exclusively on YAMAHA Zuma 125 scooters

After completing your Road America registration, go to the MSF homepage to register for the 3-hour MSF online course. This online course covers the Rider Handbook and must be completed BEFORE the first day of the Road America Basic Rider Course. The MFS online class requires you to pass a series of short knowledge tests. Upon successful completion of the MSF online course, save and print your Certificate of Completion. The MSF Certificate of Completion must be presented to your RiderCoach when you arrive in order to complete the course.  Since your certificate expires after 30 days, be sure to complete the online eCourse less than one month before you are scheduled for instruction at Road America.  In the event you have any difficulties or questions with this preparatory online portion of the MSF curriculum, contact them directly at: MSF Basic eCourse.

The course will involve approx. 6 hours of classroom activities and discussion, plus 10 hours of practical riding on one of Road America’s 4 MSF-approved safe, controlled off-street ranges, utilizing a provided 125 cc scooter through our YAMAHA Motor Sports partnership.  Upon successful completion of the BRC, students earn a DOT Waiver that allows them to be exempt from the WI MIT (Motorcycle-In-Traffic) road test and promptly obtains their WI Class M license endorsement at any WI DMV office!

Participants use school-supplied scooters.

Proper safety gear is required and includes:

  • Over-the-ankle boots, with good grips on the soles (heel not to exceed 1.5″)
  • Long pants

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% the success rate is great however, on occasion, a 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. For those that simply need to retake the skills test(riding) portion, a private retest option can also be made available for $80.


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.

Please review our School Policies before registering for any classes.
