Basic Riding Courses in Denver, CO

Total Control BRC®

2 day licensing course

Learning to ride a motorcycle properly on the public road is a complex thing. Small detailed changes to how you think, how you operate the bike and even where you put yourself on the road can make huge differences to the enjoyment of your riding, as well as your safety. Our most popular motorcycle course is our Total Control Beginner Riding Clinic®, certified by the Colorado State Patrol Motorcycle Safety Training. This course is aimed at individuals with little or no riding experience. We pride ourselves in the quality of our instructors and training methods. Knowing what to say to a new rider to help them progress isn't something you learn without experience, a commitment to doing it right and a solid work ethic. With over 150 years of combined experience, we offer the best motorcycle training in the state of Colorado. Most of our instructors have been riding for 30+ years and all take motorcycle safety to heart. Your training will include classroom and on-cycle instruction for a total of 15+ hours. At the end of each section, students will take both a written and skills test. The successful completion of this class (passing both written and skills test) enables riders to receive a Colorado Motorcycle Operator Safety Training Completion Card which is a waiver of further testing at the Colorado DOR when they go to add the 2-wheel motorcycle endorsement to their Colorado Driver's License.

All students MUST bring to the range:

  • DOT-compliant helmet (Iron Buffalo provides helmets at all its sites. However, students are encouraged to bring their own if they own a DOT-compliant helmet)
  • Eye protection (eyeglasses, sunglasses, face shield, or goggles)
  • Sturdy over-the-ankle footwear that provides ankle support and protection from heat and moving parts. Most work type boots and hiking boots work well, but canvas high-tops or slip-on-boots with elastic (only) ankle covering ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE
  • Full-fingered leather gloves with a sturdy palm of leather or leather like material
  • Long sleeve shirt or jacket recommended
  • Long STURDY denim pants or jeans with NO holes or tears that allow any skin to be exposed
  • Rain gear if necessary (class will continue during rain)
  • Sun block, as needed
  • Snacks and lunch, and non-alcoholic beverages

"I had some experience riding in the past but i wanted to do a license and training course to get my endorsement. The instructors Bob and Chadwick were amazing i saw other students in class who had never been on a motorcycle become competent riders. Total Control learning material was very informative and was easy to under stand. Thanks again Im pretty sure Ill be taking intermidiate and advanced courses in the future."

"This training is top notch. Great instructors who were able to get through to me. I'm too old to learn from my mistakes (or to make mistakes - I don't have any left!) , so gaining ability is paramount. The training format reminded me of EMT training. The price is subsidized, I think, and worth every penny. I'm using my Can Am Spyder with confidence and best safety practices."
― Robert Hastings

― Jeff Steig
