To register for a permit qualifying eight hour course you must already possess the basic skills and ability to operate a motorcycle safely, including stopping, starting, shifting, low speed turning, smooth throttle operation and competent braking.

It is important that you Understand the Expectations of this intermediate course.  You must already meet the minimum requirements outlined above to be successful.  If you do not already meet the minimum requirements above you should enroll in the Beginner Permit Course or perhaps the Kickstart.
