The MSF Street Strategies eCourse is a 90-minute online program for riders who have basic skills and experience. Its primary purpose is to provide the fundamentals of motorcycle rider street strategies, and it accomplishes this using modern, online learning methods including videos and self-checks. Please note that the Street Strategies eCourse alone is NOT accepted as a license waiver by any state’s department of motor vehicles, or as a license to ride a motorcycle or as a learner’s permit.
It is similar in nature to the award-winning MSF Basic eCourse, but basic learn-to- ride and motorcycle controls content is omitted, reducing overall time by nearly half. The course includes selectable Spanish text and audio.
The Street Strategies eCourse addresses proper riding gear, motorcycle size and fit, pre-ride inspection, perceptive strategies for intersections and curves, and includes guidance for when practicing emergency maneuvers. It is intended as a prerequisite for the BRC2 – License Waiver course, but can be completed as a stand-alone refresher program without enrolling in an MSF hands-on course.
The MSF Street Strategies eCourse includes 7 of the 16 sections that follow the content in the BRC Rider Handbook:
