The Basic Rider Course (BRC) was developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. The course is designed for those who have little or no riding experience, although most experienced riders will also benefit from the course. It contains approximately 15 hours of instruction, including online, classroom and on-cycle training. A mandatory e-Course is completed within 10 days of the class. The e-Course will take up to 5 hours and must be completed prior to class. On the first day of your class, you'll have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the motorcycle with a low risk, hands on exercise. On day 2 of class you will practice skills and be given the opportunity to complete a skill evaluation. Motorcycles will be provided to use during the course. Successful completion of this course will allow a waiver of all testing requirements for a Class M endorsement provided your completion card is presented to a Wyoming drivers services within two years of course date.
To qualify, you must:
- Be at least 15 years old on the day the course begins.
- Be able to ride a bicycle. This course is not designed to teach balance or coordination. Students with balance or coordination problems may find this course prohibitively difficult.
- Wear proper protective clothing during the on-cycle instruction, including:
- A helmet that meets U.S. DOT standards (one will be provided if you don't have your own)
- Eye protection (face shield or glasses)
- Over-the-ankle sturdy footwear
- Long-sleeved shirt or jacket (to your wrist)
- Long, nonflare denim pants or equivalent with no skin exposed.
- Full-fingered gloves, preferably leather
- Have your parent's written permission to attend the course if under 18.
The fee for the course is $50 for Wyoming residents and $150 for non-residents.
