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.

Experienced Rider Course

This six-hour course is designed for riders with at least 3000 miles, or one season's experience. This course is not part of Wisconsin's licensing system, but you may qualify for an insurance discount upon completion.

The course includes two hours of classroom learning and four hours of riding skill development on your motorcycle. You will learn how to:

  • Stop quickly and maneuver a turn
  • Judge corner speed
  • Swerve and turn
  • Assess and manage risks and learn street strategies

Course Requirements

  • Regular Class M license
  • Proof of insurance
  • Helmet
  • Your own cycle, which must be in good operating condition, including tires, brakes, and lights
