Since 1979, ABATE of Indiana has provided quality motorcycle rider education to more than 140,000 motorcyclists in Indiana. ABATE and our motorcycle safety professionals have been recognized with hundreds of state and national awards.

COVID-19 UPDATE: All CDC guidelines are currently being followed for all classes. You will need to bring your own helmet and pen for class. We are currently holding the first day of class through an online Zoom class in order to minimize contact. All other scheduled days will be in-person at the designated location.


Learn to ride from the people who have been training for four decades 


The Basic Riding Skills (BRS) course is intended to help you acquire the basic knowledge and skills needed for safe and responsible motorcycle operation. 


For newer riders and those wanting to learn how to ride


Classes can take anywhere from 15 to 20 hours to complete depending on weather, overall class progression and other factors. The course consists of online classroom (held through Zoom) and on-cycle training, and can be completed in one weekend or four to five weekdays. 


The course will help you:

  • Learn the mental skills for safe motorcycling
  1. Understand the risks associated with motorcycling
  2. Identify and develop strategies to manage risk
  3. Understand how your decisions affect your ability to ride safely
  • Gain the physical skills for safe motorcycling
  1. Develop the basic skills needed to ride in a straight line, shift, turn, and stop the motorcycle
  2. Improve basic cornering and braking skills
  3. Practice braking and swerving skills needed for emergency situations

The goal is to help you be successful and safe. Ask lots of questions. Our ABATE of Indiana instructors will help you discover the answers. Concentrate on developing your skills and your strategies -- the first steps to riding safely!
