Skill Level Definitions

Level 1 - BEGINNER

You have very little or no riding experience, but are fairly comfortable using a clutch and braking. You would require more experience and training to ride easily in inclement weather conditions, on very curvy roads, at high speeds, or for long periods. You have little or no experience with unsurfaced roads such as gravel or dirt.

Level B1: Riders who have never ridden or sat on a bike.
Level B2: Riders who have not ridden in many years, and/or have not grasped the concept of using a clutch and shifter, or are not very good at shifting and using the clutch.
Level B3: Street bike riders with no dirt bike experience. Riders who have taken a few lessons or have ridden before but still struggle with basic motorcycling techniques such as braking or shifting.


Level 2 - NOVICE

You have minimal riding experience, but have been riding for at least one season. You feel fairly confident riding in inclement weather conditions. You are comfortable with curves and minor leans, and are capable of performing emergency procedures such as fast braking and swerving.
