NOLA Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Course (MSF BRC) Sep 30th - Oct 1st, 2023

The MSF Basic Riders Course is a great way to learn how to ride a motorcycle, once you've decided to learn to ride. The course consists of about five hours of formal classroom activities and ten hours of riding instruction conducted over a two day period. Since to Covid-19 we have taken other precautions and have waived the classroom portion and added the online portion or E-Course and decided to keep it in place as you can not fail the online course.

Successful completion of this course WILL serve as a license riding test waiver in Louisiana and multiple other states. However, completion of the course should be just the start to a lifelong path of riding safely and continuing with rider education programs. In other words, completion of the class does not guarantee your safety. It's just the beginning!
