Lee Parks, a well-known author and consultant serving the motorcycle, racing, and motorsports industries, has developed this course and it is now available in Texas! Cost is $250.00.
Total Control Training Inc., has been approved to offer a new license waiver course—the Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic (IRC) in Texas.
This one-day program is for riders who know how to ride but do not currently possess a motorcycle endorsement, want to improve their skills, or prepare for a Track Day. Riders in the course may have dirt bike experience, rode when they were younger and stopped riding to raise their family, or are riding around without a license—an issue in Texas.
You must have INTERMEDIATE riding skills; this class is NOT a beginner class and you will be working on intermediate level skills. You RIDE YOUR OWN 2-wheel motorcycle (registration, insurance, inspection must be current), provide your own gear, and we ride as well as discuss/perform important skills that include stopping, cornering, swerving, and some slow-speed maneuvering.
The first exercise will test your ability to shift, stop, and make a 90 degree turn from a stop within 20 feet. If you cannot perform those skills, we will refer you to take a Basic RiderCourse or Harley Davidson's New Rider Course through a local provider.
There is a knowledge test and individual exercise skill evaluations you must pass to receive your completion certificate. This completion certificate will waive the required motorcycle written and riding tests at the DPS office.
Students completing the IRC report significantly improved riding skills, confidence and the ability to make better choices about when and how to ride. The IRC is also used extensively by the Navy and Marine Corps as "Level 2" training (within 60 days of completing a beginner course) and "Refresher" training (every three years) to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities. It is officially recognized for Level 2 training by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, which satisfies requirements for active duty service members and civilians to get their base sticker to ride on base.
Although designed primarily as safety course, the IRC is both challenging and fun. The Clinics are done in one 7-8 hour day on your own motorcycle. Although not a requirement, it's also advisable to have read the book Total Control before you get there. Copies are available at fine bookstores and on this website.
This motorcycle training is taught in Waco, Texas. The classroom and range are located on the Texas State Technical College Campus in Waco, Texas at 202 Airline Drive, Waco, Texas 76705
