Motorcycle Rider Classes
PCC motorcycle courses are offered in cooperation with Team Oregon, a nationally recognized leader in motorcycle rider safety and skills training. Team Oregon offers something for riders of every level, ability and experience that will help you ride safer, smarter and more skillfully. To Register: For class schedules or to register for a
class please visit the Team Oregon website www.team-oregon.org or phone Team Oregon at 1-800-545-9944, extension 0. Cancellation/Drop Policy: If you need to reschedule, cancel or drop your class, you must contact TEAM OREGON at 1-800-545-9944 at least three days before the class begins to be eligible for a refund. Students who arrive late or leave early lose their reservation and payment. All motorcycle riders are required to have a valid motorcycle endorsement on their license in the state of Oregon. The 2009 Oregon Legislature passed a law that requires all new motorcycle riders to complete an approved motorcycle safety training
course to get their endorsement. The requirement is phased in based on age.
PCC Bicycle Safety classes are offered in partnership with the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA) to support healthy riding that benefits the rider and the greater community. Minors must have a parent or guardian complete a release form prior to the first class. A limited number of bicycles are available to borrow for class.

Basic Motorcycle Rider Training (BRT)
The BRT is a great beginning class for new riders. It is a 15-hour course which includes six hours of classroom instruction and nine hours of on-cycle riding experience. Motorcycles and helmets are provided. It begins with the basics, such as turning, shifting and braking, then moves on to more advanced street riding skills and emergency maneuvers. In order to receive your course completion card, you must attend all classroom and range sessions and pass a knowledge and a skills test. If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign the required waiver form before the first class.
Intermediate Motorcycle Rider Training (IRT)
Riders returning to motorcycling or those with some experience on their own motorcycles are encouraged to enroll in this eight-hour course. This one-day training program builds fundamental street riding skills and strategies. Students can ride their own motorcycles or use one of Team Oregon's training bikes. In order to receive your course completion card, you must attend all classroom and range sessions and pass a skills test. DMV will waive skills testing for IRT graduates seeking their motorcycle endorsement. IRT graduates will be required to take the knowledge test at DMV in order to obtain their endorsement. Taking the knowledge test at DMV is not required prior to attending the IRT.
