MSF’s 3-Wheel Basic RiderCourse is taught on school-provided 3-wheel training units (supplied by Can-Am Spyder) that have two wheels in the front and one in the back. You may bring your own street legal 3-wheel motorcycle to the class if you prefer. Proof of current registration and insurance required. Motorcycle/side car rigs and sit-in car-style 3-wheel vehicles are not permitted in the class. If you plan to ride a 2-wheel motorcycle, you must take the BRC or BRC-2 for license waiver course.

The 3WBRC is a research-based and action-oriented core curriculum designed to teach beginning 3-wheel motorcyclists of all ages the physical and mental skills necessary to ride safely on the street. It includes basic 3-wheel motorcycle operation, maximum effective braking techniques, turning skills, obstacle avoidance maneuvers, classroom instruction and “on 3WMC” training.

Graduates are entitled to receive the NYS DMV road test waiver for 3-wheel only motorcycle license. The license issued by DMV, after successful completion, will be restricted to operating a 3-wheel motorcycle ONLY and is not valid for a 2-wheel motorcycle.

Requirements:

  • No experience is necessary.
  • No student will be allowed to participate without meeting pre-requisites and required riding gear listed under the 3WBRC Ride Prerequisites. (No Refunds)
  • NYS DMV Policy states: All students MUST possess a valid NYS driver’s license or motorcycle driver’s license in order to participate in the 3-Wheel Basic RiderCourse.

All students who are 16 and 17 years of age must have a notarized parent or guardian signature on the Participant Release, Waiver and Indemnification Form prior to the start of practice riding – NO EXCEPTIONS.
