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!


"It was a great experience and got an opportunity to learn a lot. The more you grapple with the material taught the better off you will be. I also recommend the morning classes during the hot months."

"I took the Pacific Motorcycle Training course in San Bruno and it was an incredible experience. The instructors did an awesome job not only teaching in-class principles effectively, but demonstrating in the field why those principles are relevant and necessary if you re planning on riding motorcycles for a lifetime. I had a great time in this class and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be a better, safer, and more proficient rider."

"Very informative instructors. I enjoyed every second of the 3 day beginner course. There are multiple people in class but they made sure to pay close attention to us individually. I missed the morning physical riding class because I forgot my ID, but got in during the evening class. DONT BE LIKE ME! Prepare for everything the night before and be ready to have fun!"

"Great motorcycle training program. Ofir was an excellent instructor and mentor. And I would definitely recommend anyone looking to improved or learn motorcycle skills to take this course. Only thing I would suggest to new riders is find a scooter or a small motorized bike to help you with balance so you can keep up with the class."
