Welcome to Nellis Air Force Base in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada. We at Nellis have made it our priority to ensure all of our military riders have access to the tools and training necessary for a safe, responsible, and enjoyable ride. This site was designed to provide military riders and their families with a central point to access the necessary information regarding motorcycle safety and training for the military community.
Nellis AFB provides three different training courses to military members and their families, and are certified through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). These courses include the Basic Rider Course (BRC), the Basic Rider Course 2 (BRC2), and the Advanced Rider Course (ARC). Click on the Courses Offered tab above, for a brief description of what the course entails and to determine which class is appropriate for you.
Courses are available to all Active Duty, Reserves, National Guard, and Retired military personnel, plus military dependents, DOD civilian employees and contractors, and disabled Veterans who have access onto Nellis AFB. Military personnel assigned to Nellis and Creech AFBs have FIRST PRIORITY to course slots, and others may attend on a space available basis.
Training on Nellis AFB is not open to the general public; you must have base access with your own DoD ID card. Veterans must obtain a base access card from the Visitor Control Center prior to attending, and cannot obtain that card on the day of class.
To sign up for a course, select the “Course Calendar” tab at the top of this page, then select the course date, and then select the web link under “description” to show how many open seats are available. If there are 0 seats available, please check the calendar for future classes that have available seats. Once you register for a class, and complete the online eCourse (for the BRC), feel free to show up for any earlier class to see if there are any "no-show slots." Just let one of the RiderCoaches know that you're scheduled for a later class.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When you register for the class, you will receive an e-mail confirmation, usually within a few hours. If you do not receive a confirmation for your course, contact Mr. Blaine Schwartz at 702-652-2938 or firstname.lastname@example.org. BE PROACTIVE! DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE CLASS TO CALL. For the BRC, once register, you will also receive e-mail instructions on how to take the online eCourse.
If you have any issues, please contact your unit Motorcycle Safety Rep or email the 99 ABW Safety Office at 99ABW.SE@us.af.mil (allow 72hrs for response). Registered participants who are not active duty may be rescheduled to another class date depending on active duty training needs and participation. However, we try not to cancel students unless there is a backlog of training.
