Advanced Rider Course (ARC)

The ARC is a one-day course that builds upon rider's current skills and helps with personal risk assessment. It includes a fast-paced classroom segment with several interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness. Range exercises enhance both riding skills and crash avoidance skills. Improving braking and cornering finesse is emphasized. The course is beneficial to all riders on all types of street motorcycle.

The ARC consists of approximately 8 hours of instruction. Upon successful completion of the course, a student will be issued a completion card by mail from the Illinois Cycle Rider Safety Training Program, which is recognized by many insurance companies for premium discounts. Students will also receieve a state decal and hatpin. (when available)
