eRider option available at this location

At our South San Francisco 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.
