Convenient on-line classroom

The classroom portion consists of a six-hour course called eRider 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 their first in-person motorcycle riding session. The motorcycle riding portion of the course consists of 10 hours of in-person instruction on gas powered motorcycles. The 10-hours of riding instruction takes place over two days and builds fundamental street-riding skills and strategies.

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

We welcome all Sacramento residents as well as future riders from neighboring towns such as Woodland, Davis, Dixon, and Yuba. Come learn how to ride a motorcycle and have fun with us!

"I had a great time and learned a lot! I went in with 0 motorcycle experience. The classroom time was packed with information and a good preparation for the next session on the range. There's almost no wasted time during the classroom time and time on the motorcycle. They really condensed everything they could. It's also pretty fun."

"Took the class from Evie who was, by far, the most professional and knowledgeable instructor I’ve ever had. She’s an excellent communicator and very patient with new riders. My 17yo daughter also took the class and Evie had her riding safely in no time. We are very fortunate to have taken this fantastic course and will be safer riders thanks to Evie."

"I did the basic motorcycle course in Salinas. All the coaches knew their stuff, kept the class on track, and finished on time. I feel 500% more comfortable on a bike after taking the class. Special shout-out to Tex Long, who was exceptional!"
― Bill Fleming
"I came here knowing very little about riding a motorcycle and finished the course feeling more confident and at ease about riding. They can teach you all the basics for getting around on a motorcycle over a short weekend and still continue to make it fun and engaging. Definitely recommend Pacific Motorcycle Training for anyone looking to learn how to ride a motorcycle confidently!"

"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!"
