Before you schedule your Basic RiderCourse 2 license waiver, you must have a motorcycle learner permit issued by the NY DMV. We also recommend that you have at least 30 hours of practice on a motorcycle, with or without formal instruction. We also recommend that you have at least 10 hours of practice in medium to high volume traffic.
The Basic RiderCourse 2 license waiver also covers, in the two-hour eCourse, protective gear, rider responsibility, motorcycle inspection and care, the effects of alcohol and other drugs on riding, and includes a skill evaluation.
Using your own motorcycle, unless you make arrangements with the location beforehand, you’ll put into practice the techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving. Find a RiderCourse near you.
