Southern was a pioneer in developing a curriculum for training people how to ride motorcycles safely and that tradition continues today through the Basic Rider Course (BRC) for aspiring motorcycle riders at SIUC's Safety Center. During the BRC, riders learn valuable skills needed to gain a Motorcycle Endorsement. Riders must demonstrate their knowledge and skills in order to pass the class. If you've ever wanted to learn how to operate a motorcycle, there's no better place to learn than from the Safety Center. People of all ages -- from 16- to 81-year-olds -- have gained new skills by taking the course, which is offered at locations throughout southern Illinois. The course is free and open to the public, and all equipment is provided.
