I have been riding motorcycles for years but never took a training course and never got my license. Is the Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic right for me? The Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic is the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills on their own bike as well as riders that have recently gotten back into riding after years off. The price of this course is cheaper than the cost of a ticket for no motorcycle license. Students learn new skills that will make them more proficient riders as well.

Refunds are not issued for students who fail to show up for class or arrive late.

What happens if it rains during the course? The course is held rain or shine. The instructor may stop or postpone the class if he or she deems it necessary in the event of dangerous weather conditions.
