In the Basic Rider Course you will learn motorcycling skills through on-cycle training as well as in the classroom. Knowledge test questions are based on information and practices from the Colorado Motorcycle Handbook, which is a supplement to the Colorado Driver Handbook. The test consists of 25 questions. To pass, you must correctly answer at least 21 questions (84%).
