Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic eCourse

The MSF Basic eCourse is a highly interactive online program that provides riders of all skill levels with the basics of motorcycling.  With integrated graphics, photos, and video to help better illustrate lessons, this program allows you to control the pace of your learning.  The eCourse is a required component of the Basic Rider Course, and must be completed within the 30 days prior to your class date.  You must provide proof of completion to the instructor on the first day of class in order to participate.

Basic Rider Course (BRC)

Prerequisite: Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) BRC eCourse certificate

The MSF BRC is the best place for a new rider to start once they’ve made the decision to ride.  The course consists of approximately 5 hours of formal classroom activities and 13 hours of riding instruction.  Practical riding skills are developed in a controlled off-street environment.

In North Carolina, this course is mandatory for riders under the age of 18.  A release from the participant’s school and their parent/legal guardian is required in order to attend this course.

Classes are normally held from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday but some weekday courses are provided.  Participants must attend all sessions fully to receive credit for the class.  Class starts promptly at 7:00 am and late participants will need to re-register for a future class and pay the full tuition.

Participants must wear proper protective clothing and equipment that includes: DOT-approved helmet, full-fingered gloves, eye protection, long sleeve shirt/jacket, long pants, and over the ankle sturdy footwear with a non-slip sole (Acceptable footwear includes over-the-ankle “leather” footwear.  Hiking boots and tennis type shoes that cover the ankle and are reinforced with padding and thick canvas or leather are also acceptable).  Some loner equipment is available in class, i.e helmet, eye protection, gloves.

Successful completion of this course and its knowledge and riding skill tests provides a MSF Completion card and a NCDMV Graduate card.  The MSF Completion card is yours and never expires.  Your insurance agency may provide a discount for attending a riding safety course.

The NCDMV Graduate card is only good for one year.  The NCDMV Graduate card waives the NCDMV Riding Skill exam only, you will still be required to pass the written motorcycle exam and pass the eye exam in order to get your full endorsement.
