This may be obtained from the DMV either before or after your course dates. (Students under age 18 will need to have held a valid motorcycle learner’s permit for 6 months before they can apply the road test waiver document.) Also, out-of-state license holders may participate in the 3WBRC.  However, they will not be eligible for the NYS Motorcycle Road Test Waiver.


Each 3 Wheeled Basic RiderCourse has about 16 hours of instruction. For example, classes are generally scheduled over a two-day period, or sometimes an evening classroom session followed by two days. Other schedules may become available. Please note that the curriculum content of each class is identical, and all scheduling options qualify for the NYS 3W motorcycle road test waiver.


Firstly, to earn a NYSMSP BRC Road Test Waiver Completion Card first you must participate in the entire course.  Secondly, pass a multiple-choice knowledge test in the classroom and lastly a riding skills evaluation on the practice range. Subsequently your successful completion qualifies you for a 3W Motorcycle License Road Test Waiver of the NYS DMV Road Test. Your licensing document will restrict you to 3-wheeled motorcycle operation.

Most motorcycle insurance companies offer a premium discount to RiderCourse graduates. Please contact your insurance carrier for specific details.
