About the class

 

The Basic Rider Skills (BRS) class can take anywhere from 15 to 20 hours to complete depending on weather, overall class progression and other factors. The BRS consists of classroom and on-cycle training, and can be completed in one weekend or four to five weekdays.

 

The course is intended to help you acquire the basic knowledge and skills needed for safe and responsible motorcycle operation. 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!
