Welcome to Pacific Motorcycle Training, the top school to learn how to ride a motorcycle safely in the Sacramento area. During our classes, you will learn everything you need to know to ride and control your motorcycle safely. Whether you are interested in learning the basics of riding a motorcycle—and getting your license endorsement—or simply improving your motorcycle skills to be safer on the road, come with us and we will provide you with the best classes you can get in the Sacramento Area. We are part of the California Motorcyclist Safety Program and all of our instructors are certified to teach the Total Control riding courses.

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 Sacramento residents as well as future riders from neighboring towns such as Woodland, Davis, Dixon, and Yuba. Come learn how to ride a motorcycle and have fun with us!

"When I heard that these guys were opening a Sacramento location, I got three friends signed up who've been gearing up to take a training course on the east side. I wasn't surprised that they enjoyed their experience as much as I did. I would recommend Pacific Motorcycle Training to anyone looking to learn from scratch or just to keep your skills fresh. Very professional, knowledgeable and they keep it fun!"
― Matt Hoffman-Beals
"The training/certification course is both rigorous and fun. The instructors are all knowledgeable riders and teachers. I had a very positive experience with Pacific Motorcycle Training and I recommend the company and the course without reservation."

"I am a complete beginner when it comes to bikes. But if I knew there was a class out there like PMT, I would have jumped on a bike a long time ago. All of the instructors are incredible. They make the classes enjoyable and comfortable while maintaining structure and delivering a wealth of knowledge. It seems like they have all been in the game for a while. The tall Craig was absolutely awesome. I wanted to go have a beer with him or something! The rest of the students in my class were great and we bounced a lot of ideas off each other. If you are at all interested in learning to ride, just go with PMT."
― Jordan Wheeler
"Had a truly informative experience. All of the teachers are patient and more importantly, extremely knowledgeable. They want you to succeed and create an environment for you to ask as many questions as needed. I highly recommend taking basic courses here."
