Basic Rider Course (BRC) 2 DAYS -- $389

The Basic Rider Course (BRC) is our most popular course. The BRC is designed for the person who has little or no knowledge of riding and would like to have the basic skills of riding as well as receive their MA Motorcycle License by successfully completing the course.

Students who successfully complete the BRC will receive their Massachusetts motorcycle license mailed to them without having to go take the road test at the RMV. Motorcycles are provided.  Riding Sessions are 10-11 hours over 2 days and the online e-course is 2-3 hours.  The online session can be done at your home and should be completed prior to attending the BRC. There is no additional fee for the online session. Instructions on how to take the online session will be included in the confirmation letter that will be emailed to you immediately after registering for the BRC.


Students must complete the online e-course and on-cycle sessions and pass the required riding evaluation to graduate from this course.

  • Challenge of motorcycling

Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME)  -- $195

($100 if purchased with a BRC)

Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME)

The goal and purpose of IME are to create a more confident student in preparation for the BRC. If you already know how to shift a motorcycle, then please do not take this class.

Introductory Motorcycle Experience is an (optional) 2-hr session that introduces you to the concept of shifting a motorcycle. It is important to realize that how to operate the shift and throttle is covered in the first few exercises of the Basic Rider Course (BRC).




While most students who have never shifted a motorcycle before do well in the class without taking the Introductory Motorcycle Experience in advance of the BRC, we have found that those who do take the Introductory Motorcycle Experience before the BRC find the head start to be beneficial.

The IME is scheduled separately from the BRC and is conducted on a separate day, prior to your scheduled BRC. The IME is offered in Brockton (weekends) & Plympton (weekdays).


To purchase the IME + BRC option, during the online registration add Private 2 hr Precourse in Plympton to your BRC registration when prompted.

We will email you with available IME dates within 24 hours of registering.

All Private Lessons are held at our Flagship Motorcycle Rider Training Facility in Plympton, MA. It is 35 miles south of Boston. We realize it is about an hour from Framingham and Bedford but we will make it worth the trip and you will be that much closer to becoming a safe and confident motorcyclist!

Topics Covered:

  • Locate and operate controls

  • Coordinate throttle and clutch

  • Straight line riding

  • Introduction to making turns

  • Introduction to shifting

  • Introduction to braking

Basic Rider Course Automatic Motorcycle (VESPA 150cc)

Basic Rider Course Automatic Motorcycle 2 DAYS

(VESPA 150cc) --  $435

If you plan on only riding an automatic motorcycle (ie. a VESPA 150cc-type motorcycle that doesn't shift), then the BRC on a VESPA 150cc is the perfect course for you. Although you will be exclusively riding a VESPA 150cc throughout the 2- day BRC, you will still benefit from everything we have to teach you about riding safely and confidently AND receive your motorcycle license upon successfully completing the course.

Due to the limited amount of VESPA 150cc's in our fleet, you must let us know in advance of registering that you would like to have a VESPA 150cc made available to you. You can email or call us to let us know which class date and location you prefer and we will be happy to accommodate your request.

Please note that students will not be able to start the BRC on a shifting motorcycle and then decide during the class that they would prefer to be on a VESPA 150cc. The arrangements must be made in advance.
