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 a great experience with Iron Buffalo! The instructors were super knowledgeable and really concerned with us learning the things that will keep us safe on the road. Even without much experience on a bike I was able to pass my test with ease thanks to their training!"
― Ben Menge
"I just moved back to Colorado from Pennsylvania and Colorado would not let me transfer my motorcycle license.I found Iron Buffalo on line and enrolled. I ve been riding for many years but learned some great stuff from both Tana and Cooper, the two fantastic Instructors. Connected with riders of all levels and all of us left the course better riders than before. Highly recommend!"
― Les Piserchio
"Took the basic rider class so I can learn how to ride & get my endorsement. Loved every second of the class. Peter was a GREAT instructor. He was very knowledgeable & informative. Took the extra time to make sure every student understood & was able to complete the exercise correctly. I will be back for the intermediate class. Thank you Peter & Iron Buffalo Team."
― Minh Huynh
"The instructor was very informed and helpful. The whole process was very easy and I am glad I signed up!"
― Warren Swartwout
"Our instructors wee amazing. They are very knowledgeable, patient, kind, and have great teaching methods. They are a good team. If I had reason enough we would take the class again just for fun. We haven't purchased our Spyder yet but their teachings helped me to be a better driver in general - more thoughtful when it comes to two- and three-wheelers on the road."
― AandM Wilkerson
"Although I have nothing to compare my experience to I can say without a doubt that this is hands down the best motorcycle school in Denver! I was faced with some challenges along the way, but Gary and Peter didn't give up! They continued to cheer our class on and provide a solid foundation for us to stand on as we took our test to get our license. I am beyond grateful for my experience here and plan to go back to further my training!"
