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 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 came here knowing very little about riding a motorcycle and finished the course feeling more confident and at ease about riding. They can teach you all the basics for getting around on a motorcycle over a short weekend and still continue to make it fun and engaging. Definitely recommend Pacific Motorcycle Training for anyone looking to learn how to ride a motorcycle confidently!"

"Awesome experience! Chris, Kyle, and Isaac are great instructors. They will correct your mistakes every time they see something wrong because they really want to prevent you from building bad habits. I recommend this course for anyone interested in learning to ride. Don't be intimidated, most of the class has never touched a bike before and they start you off really easy until you're comfortable!"
