Motorcycle Rider Education

Motorcycle Rider Education Programs

The Tennessee Motorcycle Rider Education Program offers two intensive courses to prepare you for the challenges that the streets offer. One is for beginners, the other for more experienced riders. This allows students with similar skill levels to learn together.

  • The Basic Rider Course (BRC) is an entry level course designed for new riders. It incorporates classroom discussion and hands on practice. It is essential for safe riding. Motorcycles are provided.
  • The Basic Rider Course Two (BRC2) is for people who are already riding, but want to learn and practice more advanced skills.
  • The Advanced Rider Course (ARC) is a challenging course for more experienced riders.
  • The Trike Course is equal to the BRC but on your trike.

Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Certified Instructors/Coaches teach courses in a safe, off-street environment. These Instructors/Coaches are highly experienced riders with the patience, understanding and knowledge to help students develop the skills they need to become safe, responsible motorcyclists. Current riders and anyone thinking about riding (ages 15 and up) are encouraged to enroll in a Rider Training Course.

Students who successfully complete the course will receive a completion card and a certificate. The certificate is good for one year from the date of issuance. Those applying for a Tennessee Motorcycle License who bring the certificate from an approved Tennessee training site, pass the Vision Test and pay the required fee will have their license skills and knowledge tests waived.

The certificate entitles the holder to an insurance premium discount.

Some motorcycle manufacturers will reimburse students for the cost of the course: Ask your dealer about this benefit.
