The California Motorcyclist Safety Program 1-Day Premier Course (1DPC) allows motorcyclists who already know how to ride and are not licensed the opportunity to achieve intermediate-level skills along with their motorcycle license.
The 1-Day Premier Course is based on the most current research in rider safety, utilizes modern training methods and has been proven to enhance student outcomes. Although designed primarily as a safety course, the course is also challenging and fun. It is completed in one 8-hour day. We will provide one of our training motorcycles for use during the course or students may choose to ride their own motorcycles/scooters.
At the beginning of the course each 1DPC student will be tested using a “lollipop” pattern similar to the one at California DMV. Successful completion of the “lollipop test” is required for the student to progress further in the course.
Throughout the day there will be additional on-bike skills evaluations that each student must successfully complete in order to achieve the course “completion” status.
There is also a written exam.
Successful completion of both the riding and written portions of the course will earn the rider a DMV DL 389 riding test waiver. Per California regulations, you will still need to complete the DMV written test.
For those riders who already have their own bike and a motorcycle license, the same curriculum can be taken without the licensing test. Learn more about the Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic (IRC).
