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!

"Evee is such a great instructor with a big heart and a lot of heart of Patients I came in with zero riding experience and now that I have gone through the course have learned so much highly recommended for anyone wanting to ride motorcycle/ scooter"
― Osha Jackson
"The instructors take time to explain everything for beginners and intermediate training. They then show you how each concept is implemented on the motorcycle and learning hands on. Although I was nervous, the instructors had a lot of patience and pointed out what I needed to do to become a better rider."
― Muhi Khwaja
"All three instructors I had really knocked it out of the park. The training hours felt like time and money very well-spent. I gained concrete skills on the bike and got really good feedback on my technique as I learned. Instructors were direct yet patient and did well managing a variety of skill levels. There were two instructors each day and they did great managing a fairly large group. It never felt like too many people or like I didn't have the chance to ask questions. Everything was organized and set up ahead of time for the most efficient use of class time. All three instructors clearly care very deeply about making sure riders learn the skills to be as safe as possible out on the road. Thank you guys for a great course!!!"

"I took the most basic course Pacific Motorcycle Training offers (for simply getting your license). The instructors are very knowledgeable at teaching motorcycle riding, and made the whole experience stress-free, clear to understand, and fulfilling. It is worth the money, and I plan on coming back for more advanced classes after I get more advanced at riding."
― Santi Piva
"The instructors emphasize that riding safely is truly fun, having accidents is not fun. My instructors shared their love to ride, and how they ride safely. The fact that it can and should be done safely will rub off on you, as that is their message."
― George Wortham
"The instructors Isaac and Chris were awesome. I would recommend taking the motorcycle course with them for absolute beginners or for riders with prior experience. I appreciate the way the whole course has been put together. Be it classroom sessions or the on the range. I have learnt a lot from these fantastic people over two days. Thank you guys!"
