Intermediate Riding Clinic / CMSP 1-Day Premier Course (With Licensing Option)

WE ARE OPEN!

We take your health seriously and are taking extra precautions to provide a safe and healthy learning environment during the Covid-19 outbreak, including additional sanitizing of gear and equipment as well as smaller groups and safe social distancing during our classes.

The Perfect Next Step for Newer and Returning Riders

Developed by Total Control Training, the Intermediate Riding Clinic / CMSP 1-Day Premier Course is the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills as well as riders that have recently returned to riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.

The IRC/1DPC is based on the most current research in rider safety, utilizes modern training methods and has been proven to enhance student outcomes. Although designed primarily as a safety course, the course is also challenging and fun and it is completed in one 8-hour day.


Licensing Option

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program offers experienced students who take the 1DPCóbut are not licensedóthe opportunity to achieve intermediate-level skills along with their motorcycle license, in which case riders will also have the option to either take it on their own motorcycle or do it in one of our available loaner bikes.

IMPORTANT: Students who attend this class to obtain their license must be at least 21 years old and will be required to demonstrate fundamental riding skills by passing a basic riding evaluation at the beginning of the class, similar to the Motorcycle Skills Test applied by the California DMV. You must successfully complete this test in order to continue with the rest of the class.

Riders who already have their own bike and a motorcycle license can be take this course without the testing requirements.


What It Covers

Throttle Control

The single most important control on your motorcycle is the throttle. This is because—beyond speed and acceleration—it applies forces to so many aspects of your bike's handling, including traction, suspension, weight transfer, steering, stability, and ground clearance. Knowing how to skillfully apply the throttle is one of the major distinctions between good riders and great riders.

Brake Control

Because emergency stops can be scary due to the limited amount of traction you have and how much it would hurt to kiss the ground, very few riders practice quick braking and even less have the actual knowledge and skills to do it safely. During our IRC/1DPC, you will learn and practice the right technique to achieve short stops so you are prepared when you need to brake quickly and avoid a hazard.

Vision

Vision is, without a doubt, the most fundamental skill for proper riding. The majority of decisions made while riding are based on information coming in through your eyes. The main reason for vision being so critical is that you go where you look but even experienced racers struggle with maintaining proper vision through the corners. You will learn why riders go where they look and how you can use your eyes to your advantage and safety during every ride.

Line Selection

Unlike cars, motorcycles can take a lot of different lines through a particular corner. Some of these lines will help you make a safe and serene progression through the bends, while others will ruin your perfect ride! During our IRC/1DPC you will learn how to plan and follow proper lines on every corner of the road.

Low Speed Turns

Few activities in street riding can be as frustrating as having to make a low-speed, tight turn in a limited amount of space—especially if you don't know the technique. Fortunately, it is one of the easiest skills to learn. In fact, most riders are able to reduce their minimum turning diameter by 30 to 40 percent in as little as five minutes of practice!

Evasive Maneuvers

Swerving around an obstacle at speed can be a life-saving technique but it requires skill and practice to avoid surpassing the available traction of your tires and crashing during the maneuver. During our IRC/1DPC, you will learn and practice the technique necessary to do it safely when the emergency arises.

Road Speed Cornering

During our IRC/1DPC, you will learn how to put together the throttle control, vision, line selection and body position techniques to practice safe turns at road speeds during your everyday rides.


Riders who complete the IRC/1DPC report significantly improved riding skills, confidence and the ability to make better choices about when and how to ride. The IRC/1DPC is also used extensively by the Navy and Marine Corps as "Level 2" training (within 60 days of completing a beginner course) and "Refresher" training (every three years) to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities. It is officially recognized for Level 2 training by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, which satisfies requirements for active duty service members and civilians to get their base sticker to ride on base.
