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.

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!

"Pacific Motorcycle Training was a superb class. Even though I had ridden a motorcycle before, they still taught valuable habits and lessons in the beginner course. The instructors are friendly and knowledgeable, and the whole experience was immensely valuable. I would highly recommend to anybody interested in riding a motorcycle!"

"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!"

"I was initially hesitant to attend this course because of the distance from the city since the South SF location is closed. I am so glad I decided to make the drive rather than settling for a closer course with worse ratings. Tex and Evie are great instructors, and it's obvious that they care about creating safe and competent riders as much as they want you to pass. The environment and general vibe were super chill and everyone seemed comfortable interacting with the class because of it. If you are on the fence about signing up for a course here, I highly recommend you just go for it! You will not regret it. I had never even sat on a motorcycle until day one of this course, and I left feeling confident that I can safely continue to build skills and navigate on the street. I can't wait to go back for intermediate eventually."

"It's been three years since I have ridden the motorcycle. It was really fun and enjoyed it the most. It also helped me realize the mistakes I was doing and to correct those. Thanks Isaac and Edberg for keeping it well balanced with fun and learning. Highly recommend it even if you are not a new rider."

"When I heard that these guys were opening a Sacramento location, I got three friends signed up who've been gearing up to take a training course on the east side. I wasn't surprised that they enjoyed their experience as much as I did. I would recommend Pacific Motorcycle Training to anyone looking to learn from scratch or just to keep your skills fresh. Very professional, knowledgeable and they keep it fun!"
