How old are the bikes we'll be using?

We are the only school in NJ with newer model motorcycles. Using brand new bikes makes learning safer and easier. All other schools have older late model bikes.

Do I need a motorcycle permit to take the class?

No. You do not need a valid NJ motorcycle permit to take the class effective September 2011. However, if you plan on riding before the class you still need a permit to ride legally on the street.

What do I do if all the classes are full?

Standby is available if a class says it’s full. Come to 107 Newark-Pompton Turnpike, Riverdale, NJ 07457 or 1315 Pleasant Valley Rd., West Orange, NJ 07052 on Friday night or Saturday morning as a standby. If there is a no-show you can get in the class. Be there by 5:30pm on a Friday or by 7:45am Saturday, Monday, or Thursday for our 2-day classes. Standby is on a first come first serve basis.

Do I have to take the road test at the DMV after the class?

No. We are able to waive the road test requirement upon successful completion of the course if you have a NJ auto license.

How much does the BRCU-1 course cost?


Do I need to do the E-Course Before Class?

Yes. If you are under 18 this class is mandatory if you want to ride.

I can't ride a bicycle. Can I still take this class?

No. You must be able to ride and balance a bicycle before taking this class. It’s easy! Get out there and try!

Do you have somewhere I can receive more riding tips?

What if I want to take my road test on a scooter?

Effective September 2011 if you test at the NJ Department of Motor Vehicles on a scooter you will get a restricted endorsement and can only ride a bike up to 500cc’s. Dont cheat yourself anymore, come to school and get a full endorsement!
