How to Register

Payment is due at the time of registration. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Instructional Permit ("temps") 

If you are under 18 years old, taking the Basic Rider Course and plan to get your instructional permit ("temps") before the course begins, you will need to register for the course and then get a copy of the MV3575 form from CVTC as proof of enrollment.

Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycling requires skill, concentration, and proper precautions. Although it's possible to learn to ride a cycle on your own, trial and error is a tough teacher of motorcycling skills.


Basic Rider Course

This course consists of six hours of classroom learning and ten hours of riding skill development (riding on provided 250cc or smaller motorcycles). You will learn how to:

  • Operate motorcycle controls
  • Start, brake, shift and turn
  • Avoid a crash by learning street strategies
  • Stop in a turn, swerve, and stop quickly

Course Requirements

Students must wear pants, a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, full- fingered gloves and over-the-ankle boots or shoes during the riding portion of the class. Students must also wear eye protection (glasses or sunglasses are OK) and a helmet while on a motorcycle. CVTC has helmets available for student use. You must be at least 15 1/2 to take this course. You must be at least 16 and have proof that you have completed driver education before you can obtain a Cycle Instruction Permit and/or Class M license.


Basic Rider Course 2

Participants supply their own cycles

The Basic Rider Course-2 (BRC2) is a one-day (8 hour) class for riders  who have their own motorcycle, and have been riding for one to three years and have accumulated 3000 to 5000 miles on their current motorcycle. If a rider does not as yet have their Wisconsin Class M Endorsement, they may still participate on a Wisconsin motorcycle Instructional Permit. The BRC2 course also serves as a license skills test waiver in Wisconsin.  This course is not intended for a true novice rider, nor is it intended for a highly experienced or seasoned rider. Riders will use their own motorcycles and must pass a T-CLOCS inspection prior to beginning the course.

Goals for the course include:

  • Improving on a rider's street strategies
  • Refining basic motorcycle skills
  • Improving techniques
  • Gaining a greater knowledge of risk awareness and risk management while riding.
  • Course Requirements
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Helmet
  • Your own cycle, which must be in good operating condition, including tires, brakes, and lights
  • Motorcycle must pass T-CLOCS inspection to be signed off by a Rider Coach
