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 that may 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.

For Experienced Riders

Become a better—and safer—rider using your own motorcycle with our Intermediate Riding Clinic. Or take your cornering and crash-avoidance skills to the highest level with our Advanced Riding Clinics, taught only by the best certified instructors in the Bay Area!

"Awesome experience - I d never ridden a motorcycle before and felt very comfortable cruising and stopping at least at low speeds by the end. Erin Mitch and Crusoe all gave really helpful advice and clearly knew what they were talking about"

"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 off while riding."

"I had not ridden a motorcycle in 25 years. The course helped me regain the feel of riding and increased my confidence. The instructors were great and very patient with those in the class that had never been on a motorcycle. The techniques taught were very useful for how to corner and brake. Totally worth the money!"
