Learn to ride a motorcycle! The Massachusetts Rider Education Program encompasses seventeen training sites operated by eight separate, privately owned companies, training approximately 8000 new riders per year. Successfully completing the Basic Rider Course (BRC), or the Experienced Rider Course (ERC) fulfills Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) road test requirements - pass either
class, receive a license by mail! This licensing opportunity applies to MA motorcycle permit holders who prepay a $15 license endorsement fee to the RMV, and have no outstanding issues such as unpaid excise taxes or parking tickets. Students who are under the age of 18 are eligible for a motorcycle license only after completing both the MSF course and a driver education course at an RMV-approved driving school. Students from Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine can also receive a license by taking the Massachusetts course.
Training motorcycles and loaner helmets (if needed) are provided free of charge for Basic Rider Course students! Experienced Rider Course students bring their own motorcycle and gear.
