The Motorcycle Rider Program offers four different courses that are all free to the public and are all designed to enhance skills and promote safety.
The Basic Rider Course (BRC) is designed for novice and occasional riders who want to develop their skills as safe and responsible motorcyclists. If you have never ridden a motorcycle before this is the course for you. Successful completion of this course meets the requirements for a license waiver in Illinois.
The Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC 2) is designed for riders who want to refine their motorcycle skills. Riders must be 18 years of age or older with recent riding experience. The BRC 2 is designed for a student who may have already passed the BRC and wants additional training and practice. The course is also effective for experienced dirt bike riders who want to start riding on the street as well as current street riders who have been riding with a permit or illegally and wish to become licensed. Successful completion of this course meets the requirements for a license waiver in Illinois.
The Advanced Rider Course (ARC) is designed for experienced riders (at least one year of riding experience or at least 1,000 miles of riding) to increase present skills and develop a greater awareness of perceptual skills while riding their personal motorcycle.
