Advanced Rider Course
The Advanced Rider Course (ARC) is an 8-hour course for riders of all types of 2-wheeled motorcycles. You can ride your own motorcycle in this course or use a training motorcycle. It includes 3 hours of classroom time that focuses on advanced street riding skills, improving your perception of hazards and hazardous situations, and allows you to self-evaluate your level of risk taking. The class then moves to the training range where you will gain experience in advanced motorcycle handling techniques like:
- Threshold braking
- Brake and evade
- Cornering adjustment (swerving and braking while cornering)
- Decreasing radius curves
- Multiple curves
- Traffic mix and gap management

- You must already have a currently valid 2 wheeled motorcycle permit on your Washington State drivers license to take this class.
- Minimum liability insurance is required on your motorcycle for you to participate in this class. Make sure to bring your insurance card to the class and that it specifically has your name on it. The instructor will ask to see it before the riding portion of the class.
- Your bike must pass a safety inspection, to include:
- Tires and wheels (condition, tread, pressure)
- Controls (condition, operation/position, routing)
- Lights (lens and reflector condition, illumination/mirrors)
- Oil level
- Chassis (forks, swing arms, shocks, chain/belt/differential)
- The ARC assumes that you already have the basic motorcycle control skills. Students who are unable to demonstrate sufficient skills will not be allowed to continue in the course and will be advised to consider taking an Intermediate Rider Course. No refunds will be provided if you cannot demonstrate basic control skills.
