*Back to Back Courses

The Motorcycle Safety Project is trying to provide more Basic Rider Courses for the public in the early part of the training season. To do so, we are doubling our courses at the training sites that can accommodate the classroom and facility needs to accomplish this goal.

To be able to make this increase in course offerings we have had to make some scheduling adjustments for what we refer to as “Back to Back” courses. This means the course will start as usual on Friday evening at 6 PM with up to 24 students for the first classroom session. Then the groups will participate at different times for Saturday and Sunday to complete the training. The times for each group will be as follows:

    1. Weekend BRC Courses:
      6-10 PM Friday evening (classroom)

Saturday and Sunday 7 AM to 4 PM
7 AM to 1 PM on the range (motorcycles)
1 to 2 PM Lunch
2 to 4 PM Classroom

    1. Weekend BRC Courses:
      6-10 PM Friday evening (classroom)

Saturday and Sunday 10 AM to 7 PM
10 AM to 12 PM (noon) Classroom
12 to 1 PM Lunch
1 to 7 PM on the range (motorcycles)

Please reference your confirmation letter for your specific course dates and times.

Some classes at Elgin Community College begin on Thursday, please make sure you know which day your class begins.

Registration for all IRC, BRC2, and ARC courses will typically begin in February or March. Please check back for more information. You must be a qualified licensed rider to register for the BRC2 or ARC.

 

*NOTE: Rider education courses conducted by the Northern Illinois University Motorcycle Safety Project on military installations may be restricted or canceled as dictated by possible increases in security requirements.
