MST Courses Offered
The True Beginner – Private Lesson
The True Beginner instructional is a three hour private lesson designed as an introduction to motorcycling. This class is to give new riders a training session to get acquainted with a training motorcycle and give the rider a sample of how the Motorcycle Safety Training Basic Rider Course works.
True Beginner is held in a non-stressful atmosphere at a slow pace. Hopefully a new rider can achieve a comfort level before committing to a 16 hour course. Many riders are apprehensive about starting a training class with no experience at all. This instructional gives riders a “head start” on the Basic Riders Course and many times gives that new rider the confidence they need to move to the next level.
The True Beginner does not include any certification or license.
Basic Riders Course (BRC) – Get Your Florida License!
Did you ever ride a motorcycle? Have you not operated a motorcycle in many years? Do you have little or no experience on a motorcycle? Did you ride a motorcycle and never had your motorcycle license? Have you been riding around without your license? What happens if you get stopped by police?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you probably want to start here. We will begin in the classroom, learning about how to operate a motorcycle safely on the street. Topics include street strategies, riding gear, and motorcycle controls, among others.
The next step takes us out to the range getting valuable “hands on” experience in a supervised environment. Let us take the stress out of that first “on motorcycle experience.” We will learn the four basic operating skills and apply them to simulated street situations. Successful completion of this class will meet the testing requirements needed to obtain your Florida Motorcycle License. If you have riding experience, it may be time to brake some of those bad habits you picked up! Everybody can learn something to be safer out there on the road.
THIS CLASS IS REQUIRED BY THE STATE OF FLORIDA FOR ANYONE WANTING A MOTORCYCLE ENDORSEMENT.
Check the schedule for available classes.

Experienced Riders Course (ERC)
Do you currently ride a motorcycle? Have you been operating a motorcycle for at least three months or have you ridden 3,000 miles? Did you get a new motorcycle? Are you ready to see how YOUR motorcycle reacts in special situations?
This 6 hour class will help to increase your confidence in advanced turning and braking skills and in swerving techniques. See how you and your motorcycle react under these crash avoidance techniques. If you have currently mastered the basic skills and have your own motorcycle, then you are ready for the ERC.
This course is NOT entry level, nor is it for someone who used to ride a motorcycle years ago and is now just starting to again ride a motorcycle.
