What is BCORMA's MSF DirtBike School New Rider training?

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) is a US based, not-for-profit organization sponsored by the U.S. manufacturers and distributors of BRP, BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Piaggio/Vespa, Suzuki, Triumph, Victory and Yamaha motorcycles.

BCORMA is Western Canada's only MSF DirtBike School certified trainer.  Our MSF Off-Road School Coaches have years of experience and graduated from MSF's extensive trainer course.

MSF New Rider training is a practical introduction to off-highway motorcycling for new riders (6 years and up).  It is a fun, one-day, hands-on introduction to safe and responsible off-road motorcycle riding.

It’s a fun and safe way for youth and adults to get into the great sport of off-road motorcycling.  Learn how to properly operate an off-road motorcycle, giving you skills to enjoy BC's incredible trails and vista's. BC has some of the greatest riding in the world. Get the skills to get out there.

A small portion of the coaching occurs in a classroom style setting. The majority of time is spent riding within a closed course.

What happens at training sessions?

Prior to your course, your coach will confirm registration. Days prior to your course a coach may contact you to confirm attendance and answer any questions you may have.

Upon your arrival at the course, all riding equipment will be be checked and approved prior to the start of lessons. This check is necessary to ensure that the riding gear you plan on using meets the required standards. 

If you prefer to train on your own bike, bring it along.  Bikes are provided with support from Honda Canada, Penticton Honda, and Valley MotoSport. Bring your own personal safety gear or rent from Popkum Motor Park

Start times are 9:30AM Students are encouraged to be on site 20 minutes before actual start time. 

The MSF DirtBike School is designed to teach off-highway motorcycle riders of all ages and genders the principles and behaviours of safe and responsible off-highway motorcycle riding. The course consists of:

  • classroom style discussion lessons
  • demonstrations
  • practical riding lessons.

The discussion lessons and demonstrations provide discovery and discussion of the principles and practices of riding an off-highway motorcycle. The riding lessons provide riders hands-on practice of riding exercises under the supervision of a Coach. On average, the lessons take about 5 to 8 hours in total to complete.

The course utilizes a controlled environment to promote and improve:

  • Safety Knowledge
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Riding Skills

Lessons at DirtBike School will cover:

  • motorcycle checks and controls
  • riding stance / positions
  • balancing the motorcycle
  • braking, accelerating, shifting
  • straight line riding
  • turning
  • riding over obstacles
  • riding up and down hills
  • and much more

There is no written test. A rider’s knowledge and skills are evaluated and tested throughout the class. Each lesson contains specific objectives and evaluation points. A rider works toward achieving the objective of a lesson by learning and practicing structured activities within DirtBike School. Riders are provided positive reinforcement not only to develop skills but also to recognize and appreciate safe, responsible riding practices.
