Montana Motorcycle Rider Safety
Training Courses: Advanced RiderCourse (ARC)

For the Seasoned Rider

Cornering in an ARC course
The ARC Course is a one-day class that is open to experienced motorcyclists who want to fine-tune their skills and bring their riding to the next level. All makes and models of motorcycles are welcome and encouraged to attend. You do not need a sport bike to take this course which is the civilian version of the course originally developed for our Armed Forces.

In the interactive environment of the classroom, the focus is on self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior and riding strategies. Then you will take that knowledge out to the closed-course riding range to develop in-depth skills for controlled braking, threshold braking, efficient cornering, maximum traction, and enhanced swerving.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Your street-legal motorcycle (subject to a safety inspection)
  • DOT approved helmet
  • Insurance for your motorcycle is highly recommended
  • Possess a Class M License Endorsement
  • Wear appropriate riding gear: long sleeve shirt or jacket, long pants or jeans, over the ankle boots, gloves (full fingered), and eye protection
  • A signed waiver
  • A waiver signed by a parent or guardian for any student under the age of 18.

To get the most out of this course you should have:

  • Several years riding experience
  • The drive to become the best rider you can be

Class is conducted in optimal weather conditions (no precipitation) so that threshold braking can be explored and maximum traction is available. A rain-date will be pre-determined. However, depending on forecasted temperatures you are advised to bring:

  • Wet weather gear (rain jackets, rain pants, etc.)
  • Cold weather gear (warm jackets, sweaters, etc.)
  • Sunblock

You may also want to bring:

  • Water or other non-alcoholic beverages
  • Lunch/snacks as necessary

**Please note that any unsafe acts will result in the dismissal of the student.**
