Scooter Basic Rider

Scooter Basic Rider Course


Road America offers three opportunities to learn how to ride exclusively on YAMAHA Zuma 125 scooters for our Scooter-specific Basic Rider Courses. Advanced registration is required.

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 SBRC 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.  

Price: $295 Includes e-course, training, and skills test.  Specific start and end times are noted in course descriptions by date


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
  • Full-fingered gloves (preferably leather)
  • Long-sleeved shirt or jacket
  • DOT-approved helmet with eye protection (full-face helmet is recommended.) 

Helmets are available for rent with an additional fee and advanced notice.

Classes run rain or shine; bring a raincoat or poncho in the event that inclement weather should occur.

Each scooter class is limited to no more than 6 students. Participants must be at least 15.5 years of age. No motorcycle learner permit is required.

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.
