eRider option available at this location

At our Livermore site, we are offering eRider. The eRider online classroom is a six hour course 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 the first riding session.

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

"All instructors are very friendly, helpful, full of energy. To keep the reviews short, this is 10/10 best in the Bay Area. Highly recommend for people with zero experience on a motorcycle. I had great time and everything is easy to understand and straight forward. You can t go wrong."

"It's been three years since I have ridden the motorcycle. It was really fun and enjoyed it the most. It also helped me realize the mistakes I was doing and to correct those. Thanks Isaac and Edberg for keeping it well balanced with fun and learning. Highly recommend it even if you are not a new rider."

"This class was well worth the money. The classroom instructions were applicable and but not overly tedious. The range was a bit remedial in the beginning, but quickly ramped up and was actually quite fun and educational. The instructors, Tim, Chris and Lisa were great. The content was well planned out and rehearsed and there was no wasted time. Well done!"
― Kyle Prusso
"Excellent instructors. They answer any and every question very well. I particularly like them illustrating points with personal anecdotes - you remember stuff well. Good initiation into motorcycling. Good motorcycles to learn on. Helmets provided. A bit hectic."

"Being new to riding, having an awesome 500cc Harley cruiser was intimidating at first but was so much fun and worth it! Instructors Mike, Lisa, and Tim were all very attentive to each rider to help identify things to improve on and build confidence throughout each exercise. Great communication and humor!"
