- $150 for one Basic Rider Course ($300 value)
Licensing is not guaranteed; students must pass the test. Out-of-state participants cannot use the course to test for a license in their home state.
Motorcycle Riding'sCool is endorsed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Its instructors are certified by that same organization, as well as by the Secretary of State of Illinois, and thus impart to students—both seasoned and staring out–the essentials of safely riding a bike. Classes start inside of a West Town loft and move to a closed course for the riding portions. There, students trade their desks for an IDOT-inspected bike and helmet, and put their knowledge to use on a paved riding range. The school offers a 14-hour basic rider course for beginners, and allows those who complete the course to take the licensing test on site. Other classes include a course for experienced riders looking to brush up their skills, and a motorcycle maintenance class that deals with how to take care of a bike and determine which oats to feed it.
