Classes Offered

Big Apple Motorcycle School offers all types of classes for every level of rider. Whether you're a novice that needs to get their license or a motorcycle enthusiast that wants to improve their skills, we offer something that will suit your needs.

MSF Courses

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic RiderCourse (BRC) is a group class for 11 students with a minimum of two instructors. The BRC is our most popular training option for new riders looking to learn and get their motorcycle license and includes a road test waiver. We are NOW taking reservations for 2015 Basic RiderCourses. We also offer the MSF Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME), a two-hour program that provides students with an opportunity to become familiar with a motorcycle and its controls in a low-risk, controlled environment. Also, the Basic Rider Course 2 (the previous Experienced Rider Course) is for experienced riders using their own motorcycle. Read More about our MSF offerings

Our most popular one-on-one training package for beginners is our novice rider package. Our premiere express package is for new riders who want to learn properly but in a more intensive one-day experience. Our road test package is for the experienced motorcyclist who just needs to become licensed. Read More
