Convenient on-line classroom

The classroom portion consists of a six-hour course called eRider that can be done at your convenience and in the comfort of your home. It is highly interactive, using video and other features to address risk management, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments, and special riding situations like carrying passengers and group riding. Participants complete all classroom activities (6 chapters) before their first in-person motorcycle riding session. The motorcycle riding portion of the course consists of 10 hours of in-person instruction on gas powered motorcycles. The 10-hours of riding instruction takes place over two days and builds fundamental street-riding skills and strategies.

The eRider is a great option for busy students who are successful at learning in an individualized, self-paced environment. Please check our eRider FAQs page for eRider system requirements.

We welcome all Livermore residents as well as future riders from neighboring towns such as Tracy, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Fremont, Hayward and Milpitas. Come learn how to ride a motorcycle and have fun with us!

"Such a great experience. It is clear that the instructors have a passion for riding bikes, most importantly, safe riding. The classroom was very helpful to understand the rules and theories. The riding sessions allowed for practical application of those principles. Chris, Craig and Isaac were great instructors!"
― Kevin Dolan
"The intermediate class was excellent and well worth the money. As a seasoned rider I learned a lot and feel like a better rider after completing the class. I would recommend this company to all riders. You can ride your bike or rent a Harley Davidson 500 free of charge if your unlicensed or for a small fee for licensed riders. The instructors are very informative, skilled, patient and you can tell they love being there doing their job. Overall experience is A+++++++."
― Anthony Arroyos
"Had an awesome experience! Staff was awesome! Motorcycles were well maintained! Learned a lot about being safe on motorcycle. All the instructors were always attentive, giving great pointers for improvement. Always supportive of every rider. I was instructed by Eren, Glen, and Tex on my last day. They really helped me improve my practical skills in braking and turning. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"
― Axel Melendez
"In just couple of days made me able to ride it. Lot of things are not trivial, so it is the reason to learn it and to practice it under supervision of person who able to show you your errors. I believe I'll never get all of this stuff if I used to learn by myself. Really good training and very good trainers... Will recommend it to anyone who wants to learn or improve his skills on motorcycle. And another thing it in fact only couple of days on the weekend, and after six in Thursday. So, it only required to leave job early once, and only takes one weekend to practice. Time is money. I got much more than I paid for."
― Konstantin Gratchev
"This was the best class I have ever taken. The teachers were amazing, especially Craig. His guidance and teaching style was so approachable. So often teachers talk at you but not the case with this program. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!"
― Store 5234
"Took a training class here and was extremely impressed by the instructors. I had quite a few questions and they answered them all quickly and logically. Being a newbie rider I didn't have a ton of confidence at first, but halfway through the course I felt like I was riding like a pro. Will send my friends here and definitely recommend PMT for anyone getting into riding!"
― Ben W
"Excellent training, friendly and knowledgeable instructors."
