NOLA Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Course (MSF BRC) July 13-14th, 2024

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 Covid-19 we have limited our classroom time and have all of our students complete the online classroom portion known as the MSF E-course. Since then we have decided to keep it in place for two reasons. The first being that I have yet to see anyone fail the online course. Reason two we can slow down and allow everyone ample time over the two days to gain as much riding time as you can. Please click HERE for a free E-Course from www.TriumphRider.com. Thank you Triumph for helping create more knowledgable safer riders.

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 MSF class does not guarantee your safety. It's just the beginning!

Motorcycles are provided for your use during the course. 

Helmets are not provided, but if you are in a financial bind or waited too long to purchase yours we can probably loan you a helmet for class try to contact us for more information. 

The MSF course completion card should earn you an insurance discount with your insurance company once they are notified of completion. IF now we suggest you shop around for one that rewards you for completion of the course.

Class size is limited! Sign up early to guarantee your spot. 

If scheduling conflicts arise, please contact us as soon as possible so we can adjust the class size and add you to a another class date.  If you do not show up for your scheduled class you will not receive a refund, and no adjustments / refunds after Tuesday of the week of class.

Class is held at Nola Motorsports Park in Avondale LA. 11075 Nicolle Blvd, Avondale LA 70094. Here Class runs from 8am-5pm both days
