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 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.

"Often it's hard to retrain the way you do something. I've rode 1 form of a motorcycle or another since I was a child. This course was worth taking especially when you consider how it improves your safety while riding. I'm thankful to the instructors, it was an enjoyable experience that I'm sure will pay off while riding."

"George and Isaac did an awesome job! Not only did they give an amazing presentation but they made sure we had tons of fun! We learned so much in such a little time but they made sure we understood concepts such as SPAT and SIPDE. I feel really comfortable with approaching turns and safety maneuvers. The classroom instructors were awesome too! Very engaging and knowledgeable!"
