Basic Rider 3-Wheel Course

The 2022 Motorcycle Training season is open for registration. We look forward to another great training season in 2022. The schedule runs from late March through late October. If you are not able to complete your 2022 class this season, please refer to bullet point 6 below. Thank you for your interest in Motorcycle safety and please stay safe out there.

Contact Stan Dickervitz at [email protected] with any questions. 

Under newly passed law § 31-10.1-1. License required. [Effective March 1, 2022.] CCRI currently offers 3-wheel licensing program. This course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of safe and responsible 3-wheel motorcycle riding, and prepares riders for entry into the complex environment of traffic. A completion certificate will be given for those who successfully pass the test and complete the course. This certificate is needed to apply for the RI State 3-wheel vehicle permit. 

**Currently due to national supply and demand issues we are not able to purchase 3-wheel motorcycles. However, we will be able to provide training for anyone who can provide their own 3-wheel motorcycle and proper insurance. Students use their own motorcycles, which may be subject to a safety inspection, and they are responsible for any damage to their motorcycle or equipment as a result of their participation in these courses. Participants must bring a valid license, proof of insurance and standard riding gear: DOT-approved helmet, full-fingered gloves, eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, and above-ankle footwear. Please do not ride your own bike illegally to the course, bikes need to have a licensed driver or be trailered in. 

** also, please understand if you are looking to get a 3-wheel license you will need to take the 3-wheel course. The 2-wheel course will only get you a 2- wheel license under RI Law 31-10.1-1.
