This course is for riders who;
a) Have a valid and current NJ motorcycle permit, their own insured and registered motorcycle that is 250cc or greater and want to get their NJ motorcycle license/endorsement in one day.
b) For those riders who already have their motorcycle license/endorsement and want to further develop their riding skills and keep them sharp to help them avoid a motorcycle crash.
Research indicates that the vast majority of multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes are the result of the other vehicle operator violating a right of way traffic law. The research also indicates that the vast majority of single-vehicle motorcycle crashes are the result of the rider entering a curve/turn with excessive speed. The research also indicates that both types of crashes are avoidable if the rider has good mental and physical riding skills and keeps both of them sharp.
By periodically practicing good riding techniques, you develop "muscle memory" which means when something unexpected occurs, your brain automatically tells your body what to do. There is no thinking of what to do. It's an automatic response. When confronted with a panic situation, you will always revert to your habits, which develop through constant repetition or training. This is why the military and first responders train constantly. Motorcyclists should do the same.
As an extra bonus, successfully completing the BRC2 entitles you to an insurance discount if your insurance company participates in the State program and a 2-point reduction on your Driver License if you have 2 or more points on your Driver License. (The BRC2 is registered with the NJ MVC as an approved Defense Driving Course).
The BRC2 consists of a 2-hour online classroom segment which you do at home first at your own pace (eCourse), a 3-hour live classroom segment in the morning followed by 5 hours of practice riding in the afternoon in a large, enclosed parking lot using your own motorcycle.
For those taking the course to get their motorcycle license/endorsement, the insurance discount and/or the 2-point reduction, there is a written Knowledge Test based on the information contained in the eCourse material and the live classroom material. For those taking the course to get their motorcycle license/endorsement, there is also a riding Skill Evaluation after all the practice riding exercises have been completed. If you pass both the Knowledge Test and the Skill Evaluation, the NJ MVC allows us to give you paperwork that waives the NJ MVC motorcycle road test so you can get your NJ motorcycle license/endorsement without having to take the NJ MVC road test.
You will learn and practice;
and much, much more. You'll learn and discover things that you didn't know before and you'll be able to handle and control your motorcycle better. We teach old dogs new tricks.
For the live classroom segment, you need to bring a pen, your Driver License or valid NJ motorcycle permit, your motorcycle registration, your motorcycle insurance card and your eCourse Completion Certificate. (When you complete the eCourse online, you will be able to print the Completion Certificate. When you sign-up for the BRC2, the confirmation email will tell you how to access the eCourse). For the practice riding exercises, you will need the following;
You will not be allowed to ride the practice riding exercises unless you have all six items listed above. (If you do not have all six items listed above for the practice riding exercises, you will be dismissed from the class and lose your money).
The live classroom segment of the course and the practice riding exercises are held at Montclair State University. The confirmation email will tell you where both are held. The times and dates of each will be based on the class you sign-up for. The live classroom segment and the practice riding exercises are held on the same day, either on a Saturday or a Sunday. Typically, the classroom is held in the morning and the practice riding is done in the afternoon.
Our price for the BRC2 is only $125 (License Waiver included). Several motorcycle clubs offer a rebate for taking the BRC2. If you are a member of a motorcycle club, see if the club offers a rebate for taking the BRC2.

On behalf of the Bergen County HOG Chapter, I want to thank you for the private BRC2 you held for us. All the chapter members enjoyed the course, had fun, and learned quite a few new things. Great course. Great instructors......Richie Schenone, Director of the BC Hogs
I had to take the course in order to be a Road Captain for my HOG Chapter. I've been riding for 23 years and I thought there was nothing new for me to learn. Man, was I mistaken. I realized how bad a rider I was. My physical and riding skills have improved 100%. It should be mandatory that every motorcyclist take the course once a year. It would help to reduce motorcycle accidents. And yes, I'll agree. You guys are the best.....Peter Marchutto
I've been riding for years without a motorcycle license. I decided to become legal by taking the BRC2 because the laws got stricter. Glad I did for two reasons. I don't have to worry now if a cop pulls me over and my skills are so much better now. This is definitely the way to go. Forget your friends and You Tube......Juan Perez
Great refresher course. Polished my skills......Jen Willmot
