Basic Rider Course

The MSF Basic Rider Course is a research-based and action-oriented core curriculum offered to riders of varying levels of experience. This course teaches fundamental skills and is not intended to produce the superb riding skills of an experienced rider; rather, it provides instruction in basic entry-level skills for a new rider to begin practicing and developing the mental and motor skills important for safe street operation.

The Basic Riders Course includes basic motorcycle operation, maximum effective braking techniques, turning skills, obstacle avoidance maneuvers, classroom instruction and ten hours of “on cycle” training. Rider coaches for the program are all friendly, knowledgeable and experienced motorcycle operators who are nationally certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) as well as the Florida Rider Training Program (FRTP). We strive to provide a positive / low stress learning environment.

Student workbooks, helmets and motorcycles are provided by Southern MotorSport Safety.
