Welcome to the New Hampshire Motorcycle Rider Training Program. If you are interested in becoming a motorcyclist or if you are already a rider and want to improve your skills, this is the place for you!

The Motorcycle Rider Training Program trains approximately 3,000 students of all skill levels each year. We offer courses at nine different training locations throughout the state. Our training season runs from approximately early April to the end of October depending on the weather, and includes weekdays, weekends and holidays.

Available Courses

We currently offer the following courses based on a curriculum developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation:

  • The Basic RiderCourse® (BRC) is an introductory course intended for new riders with little or no experience. The BRC is also the course for those with riding experience who wish to gain important lifesaving skills while working toward obtaining their motorcycle endorsement. Successful completion of this class allows you to obtain your motorcycle endorsement without further testing at the NH DMV.
  • The Intermediate RiderCourse® (IRC) is designed for riders who were unsuccessful in passing the skills test of the BRC within the past 12 months or anyone who has successfully completed the BRC. The course provides an opportunity for more riding practice and a re-test for students who did not pass the Basic Rider Course the first time.
  • The Experienced RiderCourse® (ERC) is intended for riders with a minimum of one year and/or 1,000 miles of recent riding experience and who want to further hone their riding skills. Riders in this course use their own motorcycles to complete the exercises which focus on collision avoidance, cornering techniques and slow speed handling.
