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: one in the heart of South San Francisco, downtown San Jose, and Livermore at Las Positas College campus. 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.

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!


"First and foremost the training is exceptional, it prepares you mentally, emotionally, and physically about the thrill and threats of a successful motorcycle riding experience. The instructors were spot on with their classroom and range feedback. I honestly think the class should have an extra day of riding to get the last bit of jitters out of the newly minted rider. As for the cost, it’s worth every penny and then some."

"I had a great time and learned a lot! I went in with 0 motorcycle experience. The classroom time was packed with information and a good preparation for the next session on the range. There's almost no wasted time during the classroom time and time on the motorcycle. They really condensed everything they could. It's also pretty fun."

"Ken and Kyle are really great teachers! They are patient, knowledgeable and sure speak SLOW so that we can hear the instructions clear. I had more fun than I expected. SSF is quite cooler than South Bay though."
