Motorcycle Safety Courses
Frederick Community College offers Motor Administration (MVA) approved motorcycle training courses consisting of the new online MSF Basic eCourse (completed online), classroom and riding range time. Our Classes are taught by MVA and Motorcycle Safety Foundation certified instructors.
An individual with a Maryland driver’s license who satisfactorily completes the Basic Rider Course (BRC) or the Alternate Basic Rider Course (ABRC) will receive a Motorcycle Safety Program Completion Certificate. This certificate can be presented at any MVA full-service office for a Class "M" license.
If you do not have a driver’s license, please see the information on the Graduated Licensing System, which applies to all applicants for a first license. You must have a valid license to add the Class M to before your Completion Certificate expires (6 months).
The MVA-approved Motorcycle Safety courses offered at FCC include:
- Basic Rider Course (BRC)
A 17-hour course designed for riders with little or no experience seeking a Class “M” Motorcycle license. Provides basic riding skills and strategies.
- Alternate Basic Rider Course (ABRC)

- Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2)
For licensed riders looking to refresh and improve skills or obtain additional practice after completing BRC, this six-hour program consists of nine riding exercises.
