IMPROVE YOUR RIDE

Licensing—CMSP 1 Day Premier Course (CMSP 1DPC)

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program 1-Day Premier Course allows riders—who are age 21 and older—and who already know how to ride but are not licensed the opportunity to achieve intermediate-level skills along with their motorcycle license.

It is also the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills as well as riders that have recently returned to riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.

The 1-Day Premier Course is based on the most current research in rider safety, utilizes modern training methods and has been proven to enhance student outcomes. Although designed primarily as a safety course, the course is also challenging and fun. It is completed in one 8-hour day. We will provide one of our training motorcycles for use during the course or students may choose to ride their own motorcycles/scooters.

Successful completion of both the riding and written portions of the course will earn the rider a DMV DL 389 riding test waiver. Per California regulations, you will still need to complete the DMV written test.
