Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic
The Only One-Day DPS Approved Motorcycle Licensing Course In Central Texas
Are you an experienced motorcyclist who lives in Austin or Central Texas and needs a motorcycle license fast? Perhaps you are a returning rider who has spent a few years away from the sport? Or maybe you already know the basics but haven’t had the time to go through the typical 3-day motorcycle licensing class.
At Motor Pro Training, we realized that Central Texans had a need for an alternative motorcycle licensing course to the MSF’s Basic Rider Course. Riders needed a motorcycle training course that offered one-day motorcycle licensing right here in the heart of Texas.
Our Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic is the only DPS approved motorcycle safety course that offers one-day motorcycle licensing in the Austin area. This would include licensing for any 2-wheeled motorcycle or scooter.
However, since this is an intermediate level class, basic motorcycle riding skills are a pre-requisite. In addition, will be required to bring your own motorcycle or scooter, as well as your own motorcycle safety gear to qualify for this class.
Required Motorcycle Safety Gear
- Helmet-DOT-compliant helmet (Full-face or 3/4 preferred). Personal helmets are subject to inspection for DOT-compliance and to make sure that they are in good working condition.
- Eye protection-Face shield, such as tinted or clear goggles or some form of sun-/eyeglasses. In addition, you may also wear ordinary prescription glasses.
- Gloves-Must be full finger and cannot be open on the back of the hand. They must be street-motorcycle specific and/or durable leather. Mechanics gloves, batting gloves, etc. are NOT acceptable. Fingerless gloves are not acceptable.
- Pants-You must wear street motorcycle specific pants made of textile or leather. Leather chaps or Kevlar jeans are acceptable, however regular denim jeans are not.
- Jacket-Durable leather or textile jacket (armored, motorcycle-specific is ideal)
- Boots/Shoes-Over the ankle with little to no heel. Shoes can be hiking type that provides reinforced ankle support. However, boots are the preferred choice. Your footwear should have a good rubber sole for traction and the heel shouldn’t be higher than what is commonly on a “workman’s boot.” Thin fabric shoes made of canvas or other fabrics that do not provide support are not acceptable. The classic Converse All Star “Chuck Taylor” or dress shoe are examples of shoes that DO NOT meet the requirements.
- Motorcycle tires – Absolutely no race tires, race compound, or car tires allowed regardless if they are DOT approved.
This course is the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills on their own bike as well as riders that have recently gotten back into riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.
You will learn intermediate-level skills required to safely operate a full-sized motorcycle and understand the basic psychology of riding to help make better choices on the road.
Topics covered include:
- Having a proper mental state
- Understanding two-wheeled vehicle dynamics
- Cornering strategies for multiple types of turns

Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinics Are Widely Used By The US Military
The IRC is also used extensively by the Navy and Marine Corps as “Level 2″ training (within 60 days of completing a beginner course). In addition, the military will use the IRC as a ”Refresher Course” every 2-3 years. Namely, to reduce to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
Our Military branches officially recognize this course as Level 2 training. In fact, it even satisfies requirements for active duty service members and civilians to get their base sticker to ride on base.
Although designed primarily as motorcycle safety course, the IRC is both challenging and fun. We teach this clinic in one 7-8 hour day on your own motorcycle.
