Course Number (TRAN5103)
The Advanced RiderCourse (ARC) is designed for experienced motorcycle riders. For the purposes of this course, an experienced rider is one who has basic skills and is a current rider with a motorcycle license or endorsement. This course complements skills learned and experienced in previous RiderCourses. Special emphasis is given to self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior, riding strategies, and overall skill development, particularly in braking, cornering and swerving techniques. It includes a fast-paced classroom segment (4 hours) with several fun interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness. Range exercises (4 hours) enhance both basic operating skills and crash-avoidance skills. The course is beneficial for riders on any type of street motorcycle.
