Under the direction of skilled instructors, each student is coached through maneuvers until both student and instructor are satisfied with the progress. Students will be trained using their own trike or sidecar with proof of insurance. Students will take a written and skills test during the course, the successful completion of this course enables riders to receive their Colorado 3-wheel motorcycle endorsement with no further testing at the Colorado DOR.

"I took the intermediate class hoping to better handle the new 800 plus pound motorcycle I recently purchased.

The instructors will give you information about what you are not doing correctly as well as kudos as you improve..."
