About Us

Pacific Motorcycle Training

Pacific Motorcycle Training is a motorcycle riding school where students learn the basics and gain confidence to operate a motorcycle safely. We offer motorcycle and scooter training classes at three great locations: South San Francisco, Livermore at Las Positas College campus and Salinas. These locations are easy to find and parking is always hassle-free.

Our basic course is CMSP-approved. This means students who take and pass our course receive a DL389 certificate required to waive the DMV riding skill test. We teach the very latest techniques in safety, accident prevention, cornering, and how to use a clutch as well as proficient braking.

For New Riders

Learn the basics of riding safely in a controlled environment and receive the certificate required to waive the DMV riding skill test. Our friendly basic riding course was designed for people with zero experience on a motorcycle. We provide motorcycles and helmets for you to learn with.

"Great way to learn how to ride. The course left me with much more confidence being on a bike then coming in. Learned about how to ride and the risk that come with it. Would gladly come again to take the more advanced classes."

"Often it's hard to retrain the way you do something. I've rode 1 form of a motorcycle or another since I was a child. This course was worth taking especially when you consider how it improves your safety while riding. I'm thankful to the instructors, it was an enjoyable experience that I'm sure will pay of while riding."

"Really great instructors, noticed myself and others with varying experience with motorcycling improve with the feedback and training that was provided. No matter you experience level you will be a better driver, motorcyclist and human :)"

"This is my second time. Both timed have been great. The instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly. I've already recommended the class to a few friends."
― Gabrielle Baccari
"First and foremost the training is exceptional, it prepares you mentally, emotionally, and physically about the thrill and threats of a successful motorcycle riding experience. The instructors were spot on with their classroom and range feedback. I honestly think the class should have an extra day of riding to get the last bit of jitters out of the newly minted rider. As for the cost, it’s worth every penny and then some."
