Plus-One Classes

We believe strongly in the virtues of 1:1 training. Notably, it gives us the flexibility to personalize our approach and customize our service to best accommodate our clients’ needs.

Because we get regular requests to train two or more people together, we’ve fine-tuned a solution for training multiple riders while maintaining the benefits of our 1:1 model. While we can arrange for larger groups, our plus-one packages are most common. Utilizing 3-way intercom communication, we can efficiently and effectively provide this option as a 1-Day Basic Course.

  • 8 hours: Private 1:1 training (closed-range)
  • DMV M1 skills test concierge service for 2 consecutive appointments (optional)
  • Complimentary copies of The Craft and Art of Motorcycling (New clients only)

  • 6 hours: Private 1:1 training (closed-range)
  • DMV M1 skills test concierge service for 2 consecutive appointments (optional)
  • Complimentary copies of The Craft and Art of Motorcycling (New clients only)

Transition Class

OK! You’ve learned the basics and just bought your first bike (or maybe just starting the search). Or, maybe you’re a returning rider and feeling a little rusty. Perhaps you’ve just traded-in your Triumph Bonneville for a Ducati Panigale!

This 5-hour highly personalized, mixed range/road training package will help transition you to a bigger bike—managing more powerful, sensitive controls and neutralizing heavier weight—and the road ahead with optional on-street training.

Transition Class training is an effective companion to our Class M1 and Scooter Class fundamental courses, and important next step forward.

We understand that riding to our location is not always a safe option for less experienced riders. Use our small or mid-size bikes (range only), or we’ll help arrange pick up and return of your motorcycle/scooter. We can also facilitate motorcycle rental and delivery. Plus-One options are available.

Please contact us for consultation and rates.

CUSTOM COURSES

Constant Contact

A signature of Class: M1 training is the use of helmet intercom communication between instructor and client. We have found this to be a hugely beneficial tool in the process. Instructors have the ability to provide real-time direction and coaching. Clients tell us that this “lifeline” provides essential feedback, helping them feel assured, relaxed, and confident.
We wouldn’t train without it. Neither should you.

The Instructor

Your training will be facilitated by an experienced, certified motorcycle instructor.
Calm, patient, systematic instruction is our standard. Your success and safety are our priority; your enthusiastic satisfaction our goal. Big, joyous smiles are guaranteed.

The Motorcycles

  • Our motorcycles: We thoughtfully select small, friendly training motorcycles for our new-rider clients. The fleet is purchased brand new, carefully maintained, and regularly updated. Our fleet of 125cc models feature a neutral riding position and are ideally manageable and maneuverable. Bigger 650cc and up standard models are available for Transition Class training.
  • Our scooters: We also provide easy-to-handle Vespa-style 50cc scooters for both training and the DMV skills test.
  • Your own motorcycle: Applied training for more experienced riders can be on a client’s personal bike. Within certain parameters, personal bikes can also be used for new-rider training (delivery available).

The Range

Class: M1 provides a large, controlled, secured, safe, private training range for our clients. Our exclusive facility in North Hollywood is open 7-days a week. Additional locations coming soon!

Please contact us for consultation and rates.
