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 four great locations: one in the heart of South San Francisco, downtown San Jose, 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!

"The instructors Isaac and Chris were awesome. I would recommend taking the motorcycle course with them for absolute beginners or for riders with prior experience. I appreciate the way the whole course has been put together. Be it classroom sessions or the on the range. I have learnt a lot from these fantastic people over two days. Thank you guys!"

"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."

"Pacific Motorcycle Training will provide the basic tools needed, preparing new riders to get out there and mix it up safely with the four-wheeled masses. The numerous instructors are very knowledgeable and give an appropriate dose of confidence to new riders, while offering valuable reminders and safety tips to the more seasoned rider. They also offer more advanced riding classes. Totally worth the time, money, and your life"
