Which Class Should I Take?

If you have never ridden a motorcycle and would like some extra time and attention while learning the basics of motorcycle controls and operation the JumpStart for Beginners class is right for you. This low stress class will get you ready to jump into the Basic Rider Course with confidence. If you haven’t ridden in some time or are at a novice level, the Basic Rider Course is for you. We’ll get you started right. The BRC is a Washington State Endorsement qualifying course. If you have basic motorcycle riding skills, on or off-road, and need to get your endorsement the Intermediate Rider Training is for you. The IRT is a condensed Washington State Endorsement qualifying course, taken on our bikes. If you are experienced, have your own bike, and/or want to learn the response of a new bike, have a Learner’s Permit or are already endorsed, and would like to become a better, more confident rider on your own bike. Private coaching is available for riders who want a training program tailored to their needs. Contact us and let us know what you need.

Cascade Motorcycle Safety offers courses at locations in the Bellingham and Mount Vernon/Burlington area and offers state subsidized classes to any person with a Washington state driver license (Washington resident) or any person in the military who is stationed here in WA.

This class takes 16 hours and includes both classroom and range time. In the classroom we go through several sections including controls, gear (helmets, gloves, suits, boots, etc.) and street strategies (lane positioning, swerving, hazard avoidance, etc.). During the range portion of the class you will get to put the classroom material to work. Using bikes provided by Cascade Motorcycle Safety, you will begin by learning where the controls are, including the speedometer, clutch, turn signals, electric start, front brakes, throttle, neutral light, and kill switch. We will then progress through basic riding skills such as starting, stopping, shifting, and turning. Finally we will run drills that teach hazard avoidance and emergency reaction skills.
