Learn how to ride the right way with GPMX!
Our next group school is April 10th. Email to register!
Based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginner Dirt bike School, we will help you developing the skill set needed to ride safely, in control and have fun!
If you or your child have no or little experience on off road riding and if you are between the age of 6 and 79 years old, we offer schools to fit your need and goals. The Closed Range Exercises (CRE) course was created by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) to provide hands-on training with an emphasis on safety and skill development. New riders, or others, who want to improve their riding skills, will benefit from the CRE.
Intermediate and advance:
Intermediate and advance full day courses are a great improve how to ride when you already know how to use the controls of your machine (clutch, shifter, brakes). You will become more balance, gain more bike control and confidence in different riding conditions. We'll address each rider needs accordingly to their skill level.
Fundamental of Off Road riding, bike control challenges, obstacles course, agility drills,Trail riding and even some light motocross are parts of this fun full day curriculum.
During the school, students will learn the techniques for safely riding off-road motorcycles. Lessons are presented at controlled no pressure off-highway riding sites specifically selected for the course.
This is a great way to safely learn and a lot of fun!
We offer bike rentals, or you can ride your own.

Frequently asked questions:
Do I need my own Motorcycle and Riding Gear?
No, we offer Helmets, gloves and long shirt. You just need long pants, boots over the ankle (work boots type). We also sell riding gear if needed.
How long does the class last and what will we be taught?
Classes last about six hours. Come prepared to learn how to conduct a pre-ride inspection, basic riding techniques, mental strategies and environmental awareness.
What does DirtBike School cost?
$150 with your own bike, $200 with loaner bike.
What materials will be given to students?
Students that successfully complete a course will at a minimum receive an MSF DirtBike School completion card and the Tips and Practice Guide for the Off-Highway Motorcyclist booklet; riders under 16 will also receive the Parents, Youngsters and Off Highway Motorcycles booklet.
Are there class size requirements?
Yes, as follows:
Ages 6 - 11: maximum of 4 students.
Ages 12 - 15: maximum of 6 students.
Ages 16 and older: maximum of 8 students.
Note: Ages 6 - 11 cannot be taught with other age groups except in family/group classes.
Can a six year old child really ride a dirt bike?
Yes, children are often the safest students because they don't have any pre-existing "bad riding habits."
An experience like riding a dirt bike can give a child self-confidence that will spill over into other areas such as school and team sports.
Will I be taught to race?
No, but you will be taught the skills necessary to safely ride an off-highway motorcycle. Where that takes you is up to you.
I have never ridden a street motorcycle before.
Should I take a Dirt Bike course first?
That is a great idea.
You will learn how to shift, balance, maneuver, and stop a motorcycle, plus some mental skills to help keep you safe.
This will be a huge asset if you decide to take the MSF Basic RiderCourse for street motorcycles.
Is there a more advanced course available?
Yes, we offer classes from beginner to pro.
