How do I register for a class?

Call our office at (800)410-4549 or 972-242-0300. Our business office hours are Monday - Friday 9:00AM to 5:00PM. The office is closed all day Saturday & Sunday. You can also e-mail us with questions on the courses.

The fee for the Basic Rider Course is $235.00 and the Experienced Rider Course is $125.00. This fee is non-refundable and required prior to the class session to reserve your place in the class.

If a reschedule by the student is necessary, the office must be contacted no less than three (3) business days prior to the first class session in order to receive credit towards another class session. A student who does not show up for class, or who leaves during any part of the class for any reason, forfeits their entire fee and must pay the full fee again to reschedule another class. Students arriving after the stated start time of the class session will not be admitted to the class and will be required to pay the full fee again to reschedule for another class session. The Motorcycle Training Center assumes no responsibility for classes missed as a result of student illness or other emergencies / events beyond it's control.

We accept MASTERCARD, VISA, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DISCOVER, and personal checks.

A $35.00 fee will be charged for returned checks.


What do I need to bring to the Basic Rider Course?

Each student is required to bring their Driver's License or Driver's Permit.

Bring water, PowerAde, Gatorade or other non-alcoholic beverages.  Limit caffeine drinks which can cause dehydration.  Snacks for range times are recommended.  We take lunch breaks during the Basic Rider Course.  No lunch break is scheduled for the Experienced Rider Course.  Range sessions are physically demanding.  Remember, you will be OUTSIDE, IN A PARKING LOT, WITH NO SHADE,  IN TEXAS!  Dehydration and heat exhaustion come on quickly.  Drink plenty of fluids 1 to 2 hours prior to the start of your range session.  Sunscreen, rain gear, and a change of clothing are good things to have available.

Required Gear:

1. D.O.T. approved helmet (we provide one if you do not have one)

2. Shatter-resistant eye protection.  This can be prescription glasses or regular sun-glasses made of plastic lenses.

3. Long sleeve shirt or jacket (think about the weather conditions, you will   be outside during most of the training)

4. Long jeans (no holes, no extremely baggie legs)

5. Sturdy high-top shoes or boots must cover the ankle bones

6. Gloves that cover the entire hand.  Leather riding gloves, or leather work gloves are appropriate.

You are responsible for your riding gear and personal comfort items.  We provide helmets only.
