HOW LONG IS THE APBRC COURSE AND WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?
The APBRC we offer is a 1 1/2-day, 15-hour course that consists of four modules or parts;
Module 1 - You begin by first taking a 5-hour (average time) Pre-Course Assignment which is a self-paced interactive asynchronous module (the MSF eCourse) that familiarizes you with some of the physical and non-physical skills needed to ride a motorcycle safely, which you do at home, on your own, at your own pace. The eCourse is also a great tutorial or refresher if you have some riding experience. (This is the same eCourse for the MSF BRC1). The eCourse must be completed before Module 3. We suggest spending an hour a day on the eCourse until it is completed. If you already took the eCourse, just re-print the Completion Certificate.
Module 2 - After completing Module 1, you watch a 1-hour pre-recorded Power Point Presentation (Supplemental eCourse) on your own, which explains the motorcycle controls and the four basic physical riding skills in further detail. (If you already watched the Supplemental eCourse, you don't need to watch it again unless you want a refresher).
NOTE: If more than 30 days have passed since you took the MSF BRC1 and you haven't done any riding since taking the MSF BRC1, we strongly suggest that you watch the Supplemental eCourse (or watch it again). Watching the Supplemental eCourse (or watching it again) will help you become reacquainted with the motorcycle controls and the basic physical riding skills. Our research indicates that if more than 30 days have passed since taking the MSF BRC1 and no riding has been done since taking the MSF BRC1, students forget how to use the motorcycle controls and forget the physical riding skills. "Use it or lose it" applies.
Module 3 - After completing Modules 1 and 2, you attend a 4-hour live remote/virtual classroom session on a Tuesday night, which covers a variety of crash-avoidance techniques and concepts with other students taking the course so you can meet who they are, find out a little bit about them and meet your instructors before attending the riding session (Module 4). THIS SESSION IS ONLINE. (If you took the MSF BRC1 or the MSF BRC2 LW with us after July 2017, attending the Tuesday night 4-hour live remote/virtual classroom session is optional unless you want a refresher).
Module 4 - After completing Modules 1, 2 and 3, you take approximately 4-5 hours of practice riding in a large, enclosed parking lot with 11 other students taking the course. You get hands-on training with two NJ MVC & MSF certified motorcycle safety instructors. The riding exercises are taken from the MSF BRC1.
IF YOU ARE TAKING THE APBRC AS A PRIVATE SESSION FOR EXTRA PRACTICE AND TO RETAKE THE SKILL TEST, you only need to take Module 4 - the practice riding exercises.

Because of our reputation, there is a very high demand for our classes. Our classes sell out very quickly. We sell out our classes before any other motorcycle school in the State. If a class is sold out, you can get on the Waiting List for that class. Just go through the process of registering for the class, even though it is sold out. It will tell you there are no seats left and ask you if you want to join the Waitlist. Join the Waitlist. If we get a cancellation for that class, an email is automatically sent to the first person on the Waitlist. That person has one day to register for the class. If the person doesn't register for the class after one day, another email is automatically sent to the next person on the Waitlist. There is no Waitlist for future classes. There are only Waitlists for Sold Out classes posted on the Course Schedule page of our website.

I didn't pass the course the first time. I decided to take the APBRC for more practice time and retest after the course. Well worth the extra cost and the additional practice time.....Lisa Kurtez
I passed the BRC1 but didn't feel I was ready to venture out in the road yet so I decided to take the APBRC. Glad I did. The extra practice gave me more confidence and sharpened my skills....Mario Pudotas
I passed the BRC1 about a year ago but I haven't ridden since so I decided to take the APBRC. Great refresher course.......Rachel Amerillo
