3-Wheel Basic Rider Course

Courses run from April through October.

Southwest Tech is one of two locations in Wisconsin that is now offering a 3-wheel Motorcycle Basic Rider Course. Successful completion of the course will allow students to earn a waiver from the DMV 3-wheel motorcycle skills test. The class consists of 6 classroom hours and 10 riding hours on the new motorcycle range within the Public Safety Complex. Students will be able to use their own 3-wheel motorcycles in the class. Class size is limited to 6 students to allow for a safer, more effective riding environment.

Motorcycle Safety

Courses run from April through October.

Cycling requires special knowledge and skills that beginning riders likely do not have. Accident rates are high, and the cyclist must be constantly on the alert to avoid dangerous situations. Riders must be especially careful of changes in road and weather conditions. Statistics show that 60 percent of all accidents happen to those with less than one year of riding experience.

Basic Rider Course 2

Courses run during the summer.

The Basic Rider Course-2 (BRC2) is a one-day class for riders who already have basic skills, have been riding for years but do not have a Wisconsin Class M Endorsement or simply want to refresh their skills or get familiar with a new motorcycle. They build on motorcycle awareness, strategies to reduce risk, and riding skills. This course is not intended for a true novice rider. Similar to the BRC but you must bring your own motorcycle and must pass a T-CLOCS inspection and have proof of insurance.
