Saddleback Rider Training

Welcome to Saddleback Rider Training

Have you ever wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle?  Join us at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo for a professional and rewarding experience. We are a California Motorcyclist Safety Program (CMSP) training site offering the CMSP - Motorcycle Training Course (MTC).

The CMSP - MTC teaches you to operate a motorcycle safely, with emphasis on the special skills and mental attitudes necessary for dealing with traffic.

After successfully completing the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion of Motorcycle Training (DL389) by mail. This certificate waives the practical (on-bike) portion of the test required by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for a motorcycle endorsement in the State of California.

What to Expect

Complete the entire CMSP - MTC in a single weekend at Saddleback Rider Training.  We offer convenient 2 and 3 day schedules.

Ten hours of on-bike training where you will learn basic motorcycle control and operation. Saddleback Rider Training provides the motorcycles and you may use one of our helmets if you don't have your own. You will need to come prepared to ride with eye protection, long sleeves, gloves, long pants, and sturdy footwear that covers the ankle.

Six hours of classroom. Saddleback Rider Training provides participant guides in the form of an e-Book and a note taking guide for you to use in class. You will learn to develop a strategy which will help you to deal with the many challenges of riding on the street.
