Do I have to own a motorcycle to take the class?
No, we provide the motorcycles or scooters, (your choice) and helmets needed for the Basic Rider Course. The workbook required to complete homework prior to day one of class is also provided, (not the DMV book), as are both tests required by DMV to receive the motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license.
I am very short (or very tall). Will you have a motorcycle that fits me?
Our motorcycle fleet includes a combination of styles and models. Most are standard style 250cc engine sized bikes. The fleet includes Honda Rebels, Suzuki GX250’s, Suzuki GZ250’s, Yamaha V-Star, and Suzuki TU 250’s, as well as a number of dual purpose bikes that fit taller riders. We cannot guarantee that one of our bikes will fit every rider, especially if you are shorter than 5′ or taller than 6’6″. We suggest you call the office to discuss bike options before completing registration. We may recommend that you go to a dealership and sit on the model of bike you are likely to have in the class. Unless you are able to sit on the bike with your feet touching the ground comfortably, (balancing as you sit), you will not be able to complete the course on our bike.
What if I want to ride my motorcycle in the class?
You cannot participate in the Basic RiderCourse™ on a bike with an engine larger than 350cc´s. We do have classes for experienced riders to earn your endorsement that require you to ride your own motorcycle, called the Basic RiderCourse 2™. The instruction includes taking evasive action to avoid motorists, dealing with road hazards and riding on the street. Call today for more information about the Basic RiderCourse 2™.
I cannot ride a bicycle, can I still learn to ride a motorcycle?
The one prerequisite for taking the BasicRider Course™ is that you are able to ride a bicycle. If you have never ridden, or are unsure of whether you can still ride, get your hands on a bike to refresh your memory about what it feels like.
What happens is if snows or rains on the day we are supposed to go out on the range?
We ride weather permitting.
We have your safety as our first priority, so we schedule make up days in the event the weather requires a cancellation. We do however ride in the rain. We use the opportunity to train you to ride in the rain because, you eventually will need those skills. The skills are easy to learn and you will be glad you did.
Am I guaranteed to automatically pass the class?
No. We are certifying to the state that you have the requisite skills to ride safely on the road. Therefore, you will not pass unless you are able to demonstrate adequate skills during the riding evaluation.
Can I get a refund?
No. T3RG classes are in high demand. The classes are small and our instructors are paid for the students on the roster. If you give us 24 hours notice we will be happy to reschedule you at no charge. If you do not show up for a class or are not prepared with the homework done and with your required gear, you will be sent home and forfeit our tuition. This is a serious sport requiring adult-like behaviors for your safety and the safety of others.
