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 six great locations: South San Francisco, San Bruno, Livermore at Las Positas College campus, Woodland, Salinas and San Jose. 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 that may 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.

"Helpful staff. Knowledgeable instructors. You will definitely come out more confident in riding a motorcycle if you are a newbie. A con though: You better pass the written test the first time, or else they will charge you $75 to re-take it. I personally did not see the reason why. I mean, I took it during their business hour."
― Johnny Gonzalez
