Intermediate Motorcycle Classes in the Bay Area

CMSP 1-Day Premier Course (with licensing option)

CMSP 1-DPC is The Perfect Next Step for Newer and Returning Riders

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program 1-Day Premier Course allows riders who already know how to ride but are not licensed the opportunity to achieve intermediate-level skills along with their motorcycle license.

It is also the perfect next step for already-licensed, newer riders who are looking to improve their skills as well as riders that have recently returned to riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.

The 1-Day Premier Course is based on the most current research in rider safety, utilizes modern training methods and has been proven to enhance student outcomes. Although designed primarily as a safety course, the course is also challenging and fun. It is completed in one 8-hour day. We will provide one of our training motorcycles for use during the course or students may choose to ride their own motorcycles/scooters.

Get Your License by Taking the 1-DPC

Successful completion of both the riding and written portions of the course will earn the rider a DMV DL 389 riding test waiver. Per California regulations, you will still need to complete the DMV written test.

IMPORTANT: If you take the 1-DPC to obtain your license, you will be required to pass a basic riding skills test at the beginning of the class to demonstrate fundamental riding abilities. You must successfully complete this test in order to continue with the rest of the class.

For those riders who already have their own bike and a motorcycle license, the course can be taken without the testing requirements.

Motorcycle Requirements

We provide loaner motorcycles for students who do not wish to use their own motorcycle to take this course. Students who bring their own motorcycles for the class must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Motorcycles used for the range exercises must be street-legal and have current registration.
  • Students must provide insurance policy and license (tag) numbers at the start of the class.
  • Your tires should have sufficient tread (at least 3mm). Air pressure will be checked before the class starts.
  • No car tires or race tires or race compound tires allowed regardless if they are DOT approved.
  • Your bike should not overheat while stopped with the motor running on a hot day.
  • On liquid cooled bikes, check the coolant level.
  • Check the engine oil level.
  • Your charging system must function properly, and a relatively new battery is highly recommended because you will be starting the bike frequently.
  • Brakes are in good working order.
  • No motorcycles with leaking fluids will be allowed on the range. This includes: engine oil, transmission fluid, gasoline, engine coolant, brake fluid or anything else that may leak from a motorcycle.

Gear Requirements

  • Full-finger, 100% leather or street-specific motorcycle gloves.
  • Long sturdy pants with no holes (denim jeans, leather pants, motorcycle specific pants).
  • Over-the-ankle protective boots.
  • DOT-approved helmet, if you have one.
  • Eye Protection.
  • Motorcycle-specific riding jacket.
