Learn How to Ride Motorcycles Safely This Summer at WCC

Admit it: When you walked by that 600-pound bike in the parking lot, you felt a little jealous. Someone else had sat on top of its shiny chrome, with every cell in their body idling at the same RPM as its engine. Unlike you, in your boxy SUV or fuel-friendly compact, they felt the freedom of the road that you never could, encased in metal and fiberglass. If what's holding you back from a two-wheel experience is your skill at doing it safely, WCC has a class for you.

Testing Center Reduces Stress

There is no way around it—tests and stress go hand in hand. But what if you could take the test at a time of your choosing over a two-day period? And what if once you started it, you had as long as you needed to complete it instead of an hour or two during class? Would these things help? You bet.
