New York State residents must possess a valid car driver’s license in order to participate; you will need to obtain a motorcycle learner’s permit in order to apply the road test waiver after successful completion. 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.)
Out-of-state license holders may participate in the BRC. However, they will not be eligible for the NYS Motorcycle Road Test Waiver. Therefore contact your home state to see if they will honor a completion card from New York State.
Each 3W Basic RiderCourse has about 16 hours of instruction. Classes are generally scheduled over a two day period, or sometimes an evening classroom session followed by two days. Other schedules may become available. The curriculum content of each class is identical, and all scheduling options qualify for the NYS 3W motorcycle road test waiver.
LicensingTo 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. 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.
