Motorcycle Class No Experience Necessary?

I want to ride motorcycles, but I have no motorcycle driving experience. and wondered if I could take a safety motorcycle class with no experience.

This is what I found:

Can I Take A Motorcycle Class With No Experience?

The short answer, YES! After reading over Total Control Training’s (website), I found the Basic Rider Clinic class. This class, upon completion, is the class that also counts as a Pennsylvania Motorcycle Road test and allows for a Learner’s permit holder to get their license.

On their Basic Rider Clinic class description, it says “is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience.” I was unsure about how accurate this was and wrote the company, and their reply was, “The one thing that is necessary is that you know how to ride and balance on a bicycle.”

I can do that! Been riding regular bikes for years, so this all sounds very promising.

Again, simple put to take a Motorcycle Safety Class, No experience is necessary. And I plan to test this out.

Good news!!!! Although I had problems with their website registration process, I emailed my information to the company, and they registered me for a class! Now I will really test their claim that they designed the class for people with little/no street-riding experience. Be sure to follow up on the outcome. Very happy I actually found a Motorcycle Safety Class near me, and got in. Patience pays off. I want to ride motorcycles and better yet, be a safe rider. Will keep you all informed of my experiences.

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.

Fun Fact: I’ve only been on one group ride.
