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!

"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."

"Craig, and his crew at Pacific Motorcycle Training are pros, nuff said. They know their stuff and make a conscious effort to pass it along to you. If your goal is to know how to ride and be safe doing it, you've come to the right place. Prepare to feel confident on the open highway after completion; this course is the real deal."

"I am training to be an instructor and it is required to take several classes to get an understanding of the program from a new rider's perspective. I am impressed with how well the program works I have been to 1 class and then I was a student both times I watched Evie teach very new students ranging in age how to ride a motorcycle. She is a great teacher and is very good at giving positive feedback and helping the students if they need help in a certain drill. I have been riding for 50 years and it was a good opportunity for me to see if I have learned the proper skills...this helped to reinforce what I have learned but is a good reminder that just because I have been riding for 50 years doesn't mean I learned the proper skills. This program will teach you the skills you need to ride a motorcycle."

"I had never ridden a motorcycle before this class, and now that I have completed the full course (online and in person, on bike, portions) I can't imagine learning to ride without it. The online classes were comprehensive and much more real world than I was expecting. The on bike training was solid, and our instructor knowledgeable, patient, upbeat, but also firm. I appreciated her immensely. HIGHLY recommend."

"Excellent course and the instructors were on top of it. Awesome instruction from Q, Dillon, and Caruso! Safety was priority 1 with no exceptions. Course material was well handled, and there was lots of bike time to practice and get comfortable with what they taught. Recommend for any rider, with or without a permit!"
