Walk-In Information

If the course you wish to attend is closed to additional enrollment, you may be admitted to the class without prior application if sufficient space is available. The procedure is to arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to the first class meeting and notify the instructor that you would like to attend as a walk-in. At the course starting time, a lottery will determine which walk-in students will be assigned to any unclaimed seats.

Note: Class size is limited so there is no guarantee of being admitted. Confirmed and Standby students who arrive on time have priority over walk-in students.

BRC and IRC course participants must bring the following items to all class sessions:

  • Valid driver's license or instruction permit
  • Sturdy, over-the-ankle footwear (not cloth or canvas)
  • Long pants (heavy material with straight legs)
  • Long-sleeved shirt or jacket
  • Full-fingered gloves
  • Eye protection (glasses, goggles or faceshield)
  • Waiver Release form signed by a parent or legal guardian for students under 18
  • A 3/4 or full coverage DOT approved helment will be provided if you do not have your own

IRC course participants must also:

  • Be at least 18 years of age on the first day of class
  • Have a motorcycle endorsement or permit prior to the course
  • Have prior motorcycle riding experience and be reasonably proficient in basic motorcycle operation and control

Experienced course participants must also:

  • Have a valid motorcycle license
  • Provide their own mechanically sound street legal motorcycle
  • Provide their own DOT approved helmet
  • Show proof of current registration and insurance for the motorcycle being used during the course
  • Have signature permission from motorcycle owner on page 2 of Waiver/Release if different than self
  • Complete a motorcycle safety inspection checklist prior to class for the motorcycle being used during the course

Another idea would be to take the course in a less populated area of Illinois. Generally, the farther you get from the major metropolitan areas, the easier it is to get into a course. There are about 50 training sites throughout Illinois, many of which are administered through other Illinois Regional Training Center Universities.

Additional training is available, for a fee, in the Cook County area at several commercial riding schools.
