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.

"I had a great time taking this course! The instructors Craig and Issac, were patient with me and answered all of my questions. (I hope I didn't ask too many!) They were very informative and made me feel confident, and now I can be a better rider and also a better driver too! I would recommend this course to anyone in the Bay area no matter what level of rider you are."

"Our two days of training with our instructor Q was great. The helmet that they loaned me for me alright and was in great condition. The motorcycles area smaller and off brand for the most part. Some throttles and clutches were really old to the point where some of us had to kick the shifter so much it just broke off. Overall the sign up process was also straightforward. I called in to make sure i got everything right, they called me back and patiently explained everything. The online course was great material and informative, albeit very long!"

"Absolutely amazing experience with Pacific Motorcycle Training! I am so glad this company is offering classes in San Jose. I have taken classes with mutiple training schools and PMT is the best, by far. Their dedication to making riders better is apparent and the staff is amazing. I believe continuing to take motorcycle classes makes riders the most skilled and safest we can be. Highly recommend!"
