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 a one day course designed for riders who have completed a BRC within the last 12 months. Those who were unsuccessful in the skills evaluation will be retested at the conclusion of this course and if successful will be issued a completion card. Riders wishing additional saddle time or a refresher will also benefit from this course.
  • The Experienced RiderCourse® (ERC) is a one-day course designed for riders who already have basic skills and possess a motorcycle license. Riders in this course use their own motorcycles to complete the exercises which focus on collision avoidance, cornering techniques and slow speed handling. It is an excellent refresher course for practicing and renewing basic rider skills as well as for taking strong skills to the next level.
