How do I register for the safety program?
Under Log in, Create An Account. After creating your account, click on View Schedule and Register For Class. After selecting a class by type of course and location, follow the screen process through to payment. Proceed to payment immediately to assure your spot you have chosen. Make sure the dates and times work with your schedule prior to confirming as once you have confirmed yourself for a class, we do not reschedule and if you are not able to make the confirmed time, your registration fee is non-refundable.
Print your Confirmation Sheet and Waiver form and bring the Waiver with you the first day of class. If you are under 18 years of age, you must obtain a parent or guardian's signature. If parent or guardian's signature is not on waiver, you will not be able to attend the class and you forfeit your registration fee.
How old do I need to be to take the course?
All participants MUST be at least 14 years of age at the time of the first day of class. All students must present a signed waiver upon the arrival for the classroom session. Students under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian signature on the waiver. For students in the 14-15 year old age group, NDDOT specifies that they cannot take a motorcycle permit test without having participated or registered in the Motorcycle Safety course.
How do I register more than one person?
You can submit multiple registrations from one account. Create an account, choose a class with enough spots for the number of persons you are registering. Go through the log in each time and during the checkout process, you will be prompted to confirm the person's name, mailing address, date of birth. This information will auto-populate from your account, but during the registration for another person, you would change the name. Register each person immediately after one another to assure these spots.
What happens if I confirm a date and find that I cannot make this scheduled time?
Once you have scheduled yourself for a class, you are expected to attend. If you do not attend your scheduled training time, you will forfeit your registration fee. We operate on a tight schedule. If you are not present at roll call you will forfeit your seat in the class and your registration fee.
Can I get my license by taking the safety program?
Once you successfully complete the Basic Rider Safety Course you will be given a completion card from your ridercoach and the State may waive your skills test. *Prior to signing up for a class, please contact your Department of Transportation to see if our completion card is accepted at your State.
Do I need my permit to take the class?
No, a permit is not required to take the class. You can take the permit test with the State either before or after class. A permit is required to obtain your Motorcycle "M" Endorsement.
How do I obtain a permit?
Contact the Department of Motor Vehicle to take the written test.
How many people will be in the class?
We try to coordinate a group of at least 8 people with a maximum of 12 for each class. For the range class a minimum 6 students are required before the range skills portion of the class can be completed. Classes will contain all age groups and experience levels. Classes may be subject to cancellation if not filled.

I signed up for BRC class and have not received my Student Handbook?

What if it is raining on the day of the course?
