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.

Experienced Rider Skills Practice (RSP)

The RSP is a half day practice session designed for riders with at least 3,000 miles of current, on-street riding experience. This course is for students looking to sharpen their cornering, braking, and emergency maneuvering skills under the helpful eye of a professional rider training coach. Whether you are new to motorcycling or have been riding for years, Rider Skills Practice will take your skills to the next level. Spend just one day with a professional riding coach and get more out of your riding! Completion cards are awarded.

Scooter Training

Scooter riders are welcome in all TEAM OREGON courses. TEAM OREGON has a small fleet of 125cc scooters available for student use. If a scooter is available, you may reserve it when you register.
