About Us

Pacific Motorcycle Training

Pacific Motorcycle Training is a motorcycle riding school where students learn the basics and gain confidence to operate a motorcycle safely. We offer motorcycle and scooter training classes at three great locations: South San Francisco, Livermore at Las Positas College campus and Salinas. These locations are easy to find and parking is always hassle-free.

Our basic course is CMSP-approved. This means students who take and pass our course receive a DL389 certificate required to waive the DMV riding skill test. We teach the very latest techniques in safety, accident prevention, cornering, and how to use a clutch as well as proficient braking.

For New Riders

Learn the basics of riding safely in a controlled environment and receive the certificate required to waive the DMV riding skill test. Our friendly basic riding course was designed for people with zero experience on a motorcycle. We provide motorcycles and helmets for you to learn with.

For Experienced Riders

Become a better—and safer—rider using your own motorcycle with our Intermediate Riding Clinic. Or take your cornering and crash-avoidance skills to the highest level with our Advanced Riding Clinics, taught only by the best certified instructors in the Bay Area!

"Excellent training provided. Ken, George , Mike , Chris were all good and helpful. They tell you which areas in your riding can be improved, provide constant feedback; provide individual attention. In total, it was fun as well as something new to learn. Training available in 3 locations - you can pick and chose the closest. I had to my reschedule my classes twice and they were happy to do so ."

"The instructors gave honest feedback in the moment. Giving me the best opportunity to really learn the skills needed for riding. I had a wonderful experience and plan on returning for the next two courses!"
― Jolene Jensen
"The instructors take time to explain everything for beginners and intermediate training. They then show you how each concept is implemented on the motorcycle and learning hands on. Although I was nervous, the instructors had a lot of patience and pointed out what I needed to do to become a better rider."
