a word from our director


Being late or tardy to your scheduled session forfeits your seat in the class.  Please be on time as to avoid this inconvenience.


You may cancel or reschedule your registration without penalty 7 days or more prior to your class start date.  With 4-6 days prior to your class start date, you may reschedule to a later date for a $75 rescheduling fee.  With 3 days or less to the start of your class, no refund or rescheduling is offered.


All students will be given the opportunity to learn and practice maneuvers on the range unless otherwise specified.  It is within the sole discretion of the Instructor to dismiss any student from the class if they are deemed to be a hazard to themselves or others involved in the class.


The class will continue despite inclement weather.  However, on the rare occasion that it is deemed appropriate by Power-ride University, we will reschedule the range date for the associated class.  With this in mind, we absolutely DO NOT cancel classes for rainy, cold, or hot weather.  If any such exceptions occur you will be notified via E-mail pertaining to your class.

PowerRide University Motorcycle Use Damage Policy

By using PowerRide University-provided motorcycles and equipment, each student accepts their personal responsibility for the safe operation of the loaned or rented equipment.  PowerRide University offers a Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) as an optional service that waives your financial responsibility for any damage incurred during course use.

PowerRide University is aware that 2-wheel range exercises on occasion may challenge a student's skills and balance of the motorcycle and the 2-wheel motorcycle could be dropped by the student.   Damages incurred to the levers (clutch, brake, and shift lever) are the responsibility of the school, and all other damages are the responsibility of the student. 


Students using our 3-wheel equipment for training are responsible for any and all damages incurred while the student is operating the equipment.


The student is fully responsible for any damages incurred due to operator negligence or recklessness while operating any PRU equipment. 


All students are required to maintain a professional and civil manner during the course.  At no time will a student be allowed to present a hostile environment to another student or abuse the equipment provided by PowerRide University.  If a student is found to be disruptive, vulgar, disrespectful to Rider Coaches, Range Aides, to other students, or abuses the equipment provided, that person will be warned of their conduct.  A second occurrence will result in the dismissal of the student from the course.  Care for the equipment and mutual respect are necessary for learning to occur.


Course seats are non-transferable.  Only the original purchaser will be added to the class roster and be allowed to attend the class.


Course helmets provided range from Small to XXL.  If you require a helmet smaller or larger than these sizes, please visit one of our sponsor dealers.  You will need to purchase a helmet which meets DOT standards and is a 3/4 hard shell or Full Face helmet.


What customers should expect from the curricula:

Some of you in this class may be learning to ride for the first time.  Some may have limited experience, and others may have lots of experience.  This course is designed for the beginning rider and progresses from simple to complex.  Your expectations may be to learn to ride, improve your knowledge and skill, and comply with state law, or court orders.  This course is designed to prepare riders for street riding and will accommodate those expectations.

What customers should expect of coaches, and what coaches expect of them:

The coaches’ responsibility is to facilitate on-cycle learning in a safe and responsible manner.  Experience has shown us that not everyone who enrolls in a motorcycle rider course is ready to ride at this time.  The problem could be one of nervousness, balance, coordination, or repeated failures to respond to coaching.  Your coaches will do everything required by the curriculum and within the limits of safety to coach each student to meet the minimum standards required by the DMV.  However, there is NO GUARANTEE that everyone who has enrolled in this course will meet those standards as relates to the knowledge and/or riding skills evaluations.  Unsafe conditions will not be allowed, and coaches will excuse from further riding any student who, in their view, presents a safety hazard to themselves, or their classmates, or repeatedly fails to respond to coaching.
