The California Motorcyclist Safety Program 1-Day Premier Course is designed for experienced riders over 21 years old to secure their California, M1 motorcycle endorsement. If you are under 21, you must complete the Basic Rider Course.

This course begins with a skill pre-test where you will be expected to demonstrate your motorcycle riding ability.

Riders with a motorcycle operator license from another state and riders with riding experience will have no trouble with the pre-test.
