Enrollment Requirements

Participants are required to have a Class “M” Motorcycle license. 

Course payment must be received at the time of registration. Participants may report to FCC as a stand-by student on the first day of the course and, if selected, enroll by completing the registration form and paying the course fee in full.



During the initial rider activities, each rider’s ability to operate a motorcycle will be evaluated by the instructors. Riders unable to demonstrate minimum riding proficiency will not be permitted to continue and will not receive a refund. These riders may be candidates for the Basic Rider Course (an additional fee may be required for enrollment.)



Required Gear

Protective clothing (eye protection, suitable jacket, long sleeves, long pants, full-fingered gloves and over-the-ankle footwear) and a properly-fitted DOT-certified helmet (in good condition, with labeling intact) is required during the riding portion.  If you do not have a helmet, gloves or eyewear, FCC may loan these items to you for the duration of the course.



Riders are required to use their personal motorcycle (properly tagged, insured and in good operating condition) after passing a routine pre-ride check conducted as part of the course. Motorcycles with sidecars, trikes or scooters are not permitted.  The Program will not be responsible for any damage to a rider’s motorcycle resulting from participation.
