Interested in Learning to Ride?
Learn in an atmosphere proven to reduce the risks of motorcycling. Most self-taught riders are unaware of the skills needed to minimize chances of accidents or injuries. You will be amazed with your newly-found skills and confidence. Even experienced riders have expressed appreciation for the skills they have learned. Successful completion of this class will exempt you from the riding skills portion of the DMV Endorsement test, but you will still need to pass a written exam in order to earn that endorsement. Many insurance companies offer premium discounts for successful graduates of this course.
Pre-Registration is Required!
A completed registration form and payment must be received before you can be registered. You may register in-person by visiting us during business hours at the Foreman Center on the COA Elizabeth City campus or mail your registration form (along with your payment) to: COA Workforce Development and Career Readiness PO Box 2327 Elizabeth City, NC 27906-2327 or fax the registration form to COA Workforce Development and Career Readiness at (252) 337-6710 and then call us at (252) 335-0821 x 2250 to provide payment by credit or debit card. Please review the waiver and be prepared to fill it out and sign it the first night of class.
Motorcycle Class Schedule and Location
Classes will meet in Room C-129 on the COA Elizabeth City campus for classroom based instruction on Friday evening (6:00 pm to 10:00 pm) and on the driving range for on-bike lessons Saturday and Sunday (8:00 am to approximately 6:00 pm). It is extremely important to be on time for each session as the instruction “builds” and cannot be repeated. Late arrivals will not be permitted to join the class or make up the missed information at a later time. Registration fees are non-refundable for late arrivals, students who are asked to withdraw from the class or chose to withdraw from the class for any reason.
What to Wear
A long sleeved shirt or jacket, long pants, eye protection (glasses or face shield), full-fingered gloves, over-the-ankle footwear, and a DOT approved helmet are required (we will have some loaners if you do not have your own). It may be necessary to dress for inclement weather.
A motorcycle endorsement or permit is not required for the BRC course. As a general rule, rain will not delay or cancel riding instructions. Class is held rain or shine! This course is a demanding physical activity, particularly in the summer, and requires physical stamina, motor coordination and mental alertness. Students must know how to ride a bicycle, be able to support a 300 lb. motorcycle while straddling it, and have the ability to push the motorcycle for distances up to 120 feet.
