Student Requirements

A few prerequisites for our students

Riding Gear Requirements:

  • A DOT or Snell-approved full-face motorcycle helmet with no damage.
  • One-piece or zip-together leather riding suit (or Aerostitch™ or equivalent). If you need to rent leathers, boots, and/or gloves, STAR has a limited supply of Dainese leathers and accessories available for rent. Arrangements should be made in advance.
  • Motorcycle riding boots that COVER your ankle.
  • Motorcycle-specific gloves with wrist enclosure (no “stunting” gloves).

Motorcycle Requirements:

  • A well-prepared motorcycle that is at least 250cc (4-Stroke)(125cc GP also allowed).
  • No mechanical issues, no fluid leaks, good brakes, etc.
  • Properly operating controls (throttle snaps shut, steering turns freely, correct clutch and throttle play, firm brakes, etc.)
  • Remove or tape mirrors.
  • Disconnect brake light, or remove bulbs/fuse, or tape brake-light lens.
  • Adequate chain slack (read your owners manual).
  • Excellent tires (We prefer new, and suggest that you contact the manufacturer for recommended racetrack pressures. These are not the pressures on the side of the tire, nor are they the pressures cited in your owners manual).

General Requirements:

  • A minimum of one year of streetbike riding experience.
  • Medical insurance. STAR Motorcycle School provides no medical insurance.
