For students who previously took the Basic Rider Course (OCC-361) or the Alternate Basic Rider Course (OCC-369) at PGCC who wish to retake the course for a motorcycle license or additional practice. This motorcycle rider course is designed for both beginners and those who are not professionally trained. To register, a student must be at least 16 years, 6 months of age. If the student is under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must sign "liability release documents" on behalf of the student. Participants receive classroom instruction and riding instruction on a training motorcycle, provided by the college, practicing clutch-throttle control, stopping the motorcycle in a safe distance, turning, shifting, and basic crash avoidance skills. Throughout the course, instructors will evaluate and coach each rider's ability and performance. To successfully complete the course, riders must pass a riding skills test and a riding knowledge test. Participants who do not achieve the minimum performance standards will not be allowed to continue in the course. There is no guarantee that individuals enrolling in this course will pass or get their license.
