What does the Off Road 101 course offer?

The Off Road 101 course is for riders looking to expand or learn general off road riding techniques. This course offers the skills and knowledge for riding off road and on trails.

Some street or off road riding experience is required and you can rent a school bike if needed. Youth may be permitted to join this training if they ride an adult-sized dirtbike. This is also an excellent venue for street (dualsport and adventure!) riders that are interested in becoming more skilled at traction control and technical riding.

What does the Off Road 102 course offer?

The Off Road 102 course is an entire 101 course (day one session) and then expands on those skills with on-trail training in a closed riding system (day two session).

The benefit of the Off Road 102 course is that you not only learn the skills but our professional instructors help you to apply them to trails before you head out on your own.

What techniques will I learn?

Key skills include slow speed control, hills, braking/sliding, picking up your motorcycle, body mechanics, improved turning, and quick reaction maneuvers.

  • Riding posture (standing, sitting, weight transfer)
  • Slow speed control (clutch/throttle/brake coordination)
  • Picking up your motorcycle
  • Braking and evasive maneuvers
  • Surmounting obstacles
  • Starting/stopping, ascending/descending hills

You will also learn how to prevent injury, control traction and how to set your bike up for better control and comfort.

How much time do we get to ride?

Your entire class time is spent on the course with plenty of hands-on instruction and real-world riding situations. Total class time for the school can vary from four to six hours depending on weather, breaks and class size and the abilities of the students. The Off Road 102 course includes an additional 5 hours of training on a second day.

How old do I have to be to take this level of off-road course?

The Off Road 101 & 102 courses do not have an age restriction however youth must ride or be able to ride an adult-sized dirtbike.

Do I need my own motorcycle?

"The core of what we do."

The history of the Level 100 program, like much of PSS Off Road, is rooted in the customer. Our off road program began with a learn-to-ride course geared toward kids and adults. It turned out that many street riders wanted to learn dirt riding skills as well.

Rather than have people who know how to operate a motorcycle go through all the basics, we created a course specifically for those that already know how to ride.

We took the core skills needed for riding off road – be it for dirtbiking, dualsporting, or adventure riding – and composed them into a one-day training course. The unofficial motto of the 101 course is:

"We won't teach you how to ride. We'll teach you how to ride off road."
