Motorcycle 3-Hour Refresher Class

Pacific Motorcycle Training

Note: If you are looking for a course to waive your DMV skills test, click here.

The Refresher Class is designed for improving the riding skills of any beginner rider who wants more practice on a motorcycle before riding on the street. Students should already be familiar with the friction zone, shifting and breaking before signing up for this class. This class is ideal for students who have already taken the basic licensing course but have not experienced a lot of seat time outside of a parking lot, or for students who are licensed but have not ridden in several years.

Cost: $265. Bike rental included.

IMPORTANT: This class will give you extra practice, but CANNOT be accepted for credit toward receiving a DMV DL389 waiver form.

This three hour course class is currently being held in Livermore and South San Francisco on select Saturdays from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.

"I struggled a lot with the weight of the bike and fell a couple times. Q gave me helpful tips on balancing the bike and offered a lighter bike. All the teachers were very helpful, knowledgable and patient. The first day was hard learning the basics but by the end I learned how to ride the motorcycle and was able to pass the class."
