Experienced Riders Course/License Waiver (ERC or ERCLW)

The ERCLW is for riders who already have basic skills and have the desire to refresh, or obtain a 90 day license waiver. The ERCLW course is similar to the BRC except the speeds are higher and riders ride their own motorcycle. It is an excellent refresher course for practicing and renewing basic riding skills. There is an informal classroom component that discusses safety concepts based on past riding experiences and current knowledge.

Successful graduates earn a 90-day License Waiver. The DDS waives the written and riding portions of your Motorcycle License application for 90 days from the completion date of your course. To successfully graduate, students must attend and be on time for all sessions, get 80% or better on a written evaluation and pass an on-motorcycle skills evaluation. Also, an MSF Course Completion card may earn you an insurance discount.

The GMSP requires every student to:

  • Sign and date a course waiver form.
