EAST BAY

Our Alameda site is the closest site to the Oakland/Berkeley area that provides the DMV waiver.  All of the beginning classes take place over three days and finish within one week

Our Alameda site (formerly California Rider Education(CaRE)) is the closest site to the Oakland/Berkeley area to provide the waiver for the riding portion of the DMV's motorcycle licensing test.

Our beginning class is designed for students that have no experience at all on a motorcycle, provides the waiver for the DMV riding test, and is a licensing requirement for anyone under 21 years old. Motorcycles and helmets are provided

 

You do not need the required gear until the Saturday riding session

 

You may request a scooter by putting your request in the notes section when you register.  The office will confirm if a scooter is available for that class on the next business day.

All of our Alameda classes take place over three 3 days and finish within the same week.  You just have to choose if you would prefer to have your riding sessions in the morning or the afternoon

If you ride in the morning there is a very long break before the second classroom begins in the evening.  If you ride in the afternoon the break before the classroom is very short, so bring something to eat.  You are welcome to eat in the classroom as long as you leave it cleaner than you found it.
