WHAT TO EXPECT

When you take a New Rider Course at the Riding Academy you will:

  • Learn to ride on a genuine Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
  • Receive full support of the entire Dealership staff, before, during and well after your Harley-Davidson® motorcycle class
  • Learn systematically how to accelerate, shift, brake, turn from a stop, along with maneuvers like controlling skids, swerving and multiple-curves.
  • Earn an official Beginner Rider Course (BRC) Completion Card, that exempts you from the WI DMV road test and may get you a discount from certain vehicle insurance companies-check with your agent for clarification.

New Rider Course FAQs

You’ll need a valid Wisconsin automobile driver’s license or must have passed an official WI-state driver’s education course, and have the ability to ride and balance a bicycle.

You do NOT need to hold a Wisconsin Motorcycle Temporary Permit before class because you are on private property. If you intend to ride on the road prior to class, it is strongly suggested you do earn the Temporary Permit to remain a legal motorcyclist.

After the course is completed and BRC card earned, you WILL need to complete the Motorcycle Temporary Permit test before the M endorsement will be given at the DMV.
