eRider option available at this location

At our Livermore site, we are offering eRider. The eRider online classroom is a six hour course that can be done at your convenience and in the comfort of your home. It is highly interactive, using video and other features to address risk management, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments, and special riding situations like carrying passengers and group riding. Participants complete all classroom activities (6 chapters) before the first riding session.

The eRider is a great option for students who are successful at learning in an individualized, self-paced environment. Please check our eRider FAQs page for eRider system requirements.

"Loved this course and the instructors. Loved having a female instructor, who made us feel welcome and more confident. The first time on the bike, I felt like a fish out of water. By the end of the second day, I felt so much more comfortable with the bike and my growing skillset. I can t wait to get some miles in so we can take the intermediate class."
― Kate Mac Kay
"I had not ridden a motorcycle in 25 years. The course helped me regain the feel of riding and increased my confidence. The instructors were great and very patient with those in the class that had never been on a motorcycle. The techniques taught were very useful for how to corner and brake. Totally worth the money!"
