Courses Description

All NJ training providers offer courses that are certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). There are two basic types of courses:

  • Basic RiderCourse (BRC)
    Whether you’ve never ridden a motorcycle or just never had any formal training, the BRC is a great way to learn how to ride safely and responsibly. If you complete the course you may not have to take MVC's road test.
  • Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2) - (Formally Experienced RiderCourse - ERC)
    Even if you've been riding for some time, there's always something new to learn. A BRC2 will help to hone your skills and the thinking needed for survival in traffic. Using your own motorcycle, you'll practice techniques for managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving. A fun way to learn and meet other New Jersey riders.
Top reasons to get training
  1. Proven safety advantage – Studies show that riders with certified training have far fewer accidents. In fact, 90% of motorcycle accidents involve untrained riders. And when accidents do occur, trained riders suffer fewer injuries.
  2. Road test waiver – Upon successful completion of the BRC or BRC2, you may be eligible for a road test waiver.*
  3. Insurance discounts – Most insurance carriers offer a discount to motorcyclists who complete a certified training/defensive driving course every 2-3 years. Contact your insurance carrier for details.

*Certain restrictions apply. Contact NJMVC or one of the NJ training providers for details.

Law Change: Effective January 1, 2013, anyone who takes a road test at MVC on a bike that is 231CC or less is restricted to riding only a 500CC or less motorcycle (M endorsement or Class E motorcycle-only license with restriction). If the road test is taken on a bike that is over 231CC, there will be no restriction with the M endorsement or motorcycle-only license. Anyone who successfully completes a Motorcycle Safety Education Program (MSEP) course is exempt from this bike size requirement and will not be restricted. Riders who are restricted to a bike that is 500CC or less will have a restriction “5” noted on their license and will be required to carry an MVC-issued restriction card while operating the motorcycle.
