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 does not 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 150ccs 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. Please email us 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.
