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!

"I had very little riding experience and the instructors did a fantastic job of teaching me. The course and instructors are very safety focused and this made me much more comfortable on a motorcycle. I highly recommend the course and Pacific Motorcycle Training!"

"This class was well worth the money. The classroom instructions were applicable and but not overly tedious. The range was a bit remedial in the beginning, but quickly ramped up and was actually quite fun and educational. The instructors, Tim, Chris and Lisa were great. The content was well planned out and rehearsed and there was no wasted time. Well done!"
― Kyle Prusso
"This is a great course for anyone looking to learn how to operate and ride a motorcycle correctly and also a great way to get you licence. The team are friendly, positive and ready to help you no matter your level of experience. If I can convince my wife to become more than a passenger, this is definitely the place we will go. Thank you again to Ken, Chris and Kyle for all the great feedback."
