With the use of our motorcycles, established curriculum, skilled instructors, and a supportive atmosphere, the New Rider Course is designed to teach those new to motorcycle how to feel comfortable and confident, and ride safely. Come prepared by bringing the following: DOT approved full face or 3/4 helmet, protective eyewear, full-fingered gloves, over-the-ankle leather boots, jeans, heavy long-sleeved shirt, valid automobile driver's license or learner's permit, and the ability to ride a bicycle.

Upon completion of the course and you are applying for your Motorcycle Endorsement in the state of Missouri, the class qualifies as the driving portion of your Motorcycle Endorsement Test. You will then ONLY need to go to a local testing office to take the written portion of the test in which you already took and passed in order to complete the course.
