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

"Training was excellent! Both Chadwick and Doug presented the material in an accessible and informative way, and we had a lot of fun at the same time! I would strongly recommend the Beginner Riding Clinic to anyone that wants to learn about motorcycles and be safe on the road. We can't wait to come back for the Intermediate courses.Thanks for everything!"

"Wonderful experience. I had zero motorcycle experience going in. They covered all the basics and got me proficient in two days. The classroom exercises were straight forward and prepared me for the test. The practical exercises on the bike were a challenge for me at first but became second nature by the end of day two. I would recommend this class to both new and experienced riders looking to get a Colorado endorsement."

"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!"
― Kelsey O'Sullivan
"I appreciated how thorough it was. You could come in with zero knowledge and experience and the instruction was relevant to both newbies and experienced riders. There was camaraderie and a sense of being all on the same team that also just made it fun."
― Tara Nichols
