Motorcycle Safety: Basic Rider Course (BRC)

This 17-hour course is designed for beginning riders who have little or no riding experience. It includes seven hours classroom and 10 hours of riding instruction on the basic riding skills and strategies necessary to practice street riding. Covers responsible riding, proper riding gear, and defensive riding strategies. Practice clutch-throttle control, stopping, turning, shifting, and basic crash avoidance skills. Participants who do not achieve the minimum performance standards will not be allowed to continue in the course and will not receive a refund. Instructors are certified by both the Motor Vehicle Administration and Motorcycle Safety Program. Note: it is helpful if you are able to ride a bicycle.

To pass the course, riders must pass a knowledge and skills test administered at the end of the course. Riders who pass will receive a Maryland Motorcycle Safety Program Completion Card and Completion Certificate. Certificate holders are eligible to receive their Class “M” license added to their MD license at the MVA.

Out-of-state license holders receive only the MSF Completion Card, not the Maryland MVA Completion Certificate. There is no guarantee that an individual enrolling in this course will pass or get his or her license.
