This one-day course is designed for riders with a permit or similar knowledge and riding experience who are currently riding on the street and feel ready to pursue a motorcycle endorsement. This one-day course is approximately 8 hours long. It includes classroom instruction covering safety concepts based on past riding experiences and current knowledge. The range exercises cover cornering, swerving, stopping, and hazard avoidance. WA 2 Wheel Motorcycle Endorsement Knowledge and Skills testing is included in this class.

A two hour MSF eCourse is included, and completion is required in order to receive a course completion card.

Important: Registering for this course means you must ALREADY POSSESS the basic skill and ability to operate a motorcycle safely. The required basic skills include stopping, starting, shifting, low speed turning and competent braking of a motorcycle. Please also review the course descriptions for the Basic Rider Course so you are confident you’ve chosen the right course before registering.

The BRC2 is an 8 hour in person class

Permit level testing is NOT included with the BRC2.

*Riders must either have valid WA Permit Test scores or a valid WA Motorcycle Permit in addition to Endorsement Test scores to obtain a WA motorcycle endorsement.

*While highly recommended, classes are not required for riders 18 and older before taking permit and endorsement tests.
