  • Passing the MTC is required for a motorcycle license for a person under 21 years of age.

The Vallejo location uses a 2 week (4 day) format – one weeknight + one weekend day for 2 weeks: 

  • Classroom 1 is a weekday evening, 6;00pm-9:30pm.

The Premier Motorcyclist Rider Course (PMTC) is a combination of the MTC and the Intermediate Rider Clinic (IRC). The IRC teaches additional street survival skills to ride a motorcycle safely in traffic.

(BAMT is not currently able to offer the PMTC. Visit the CMSP website for a PMTC near you.)

  • The PMTC takes 21 hours spread over 5 separate sessions.
  1. You first complete the entire MTC as described above (4 sessions).

  • A motorcycle and helmet is provided if you do not have one, but you are encouraged to use your own motorcycle for the IRC. (See "Required")

* MTC Tuition fees are set by the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. All tuition fees are not refundable or transferable for any reason.

Kentucky Oaks

The Longines Kentucky Oaks is America’s premier and most lucrative race for 3-year old fillies – female horses - held each year on the day before the Kentucky Derby. This feature race is a $1 Million Grade 1 stakes race and awards the winning filly a garland of lilies, appropriately named “lilies for the fillies.” Like the Kentucky Derby, the Longines Kentucky Oaks race is one of the longest continually held sporting events in American history, and one of the only horse races to take place at the original site of its inception. The race was established on May 19th, 1875, by the same founder of the Kentucky Derby, Colonel Meriwether Lewis Clark, and is modeled after the British Epsom Oaks.

Kentucky Oaks Day at Churchill Downs is the fourth highest attended horse race in the United States – following the Triple Crown of racing; the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. Aside from thunderous live horse racing, fans celebrate fashion and fundraising for critical women’s health issues.


Pink Out

During Kentucky Oaks Day, the historic racetrack is decorated in pink bunting and the more than 100,000 guests are asked to prominently incorporate pink into their attire in an effort to raise funds and drive national attention to the fight against breast and ovarian cancer.

Churchill Downs has partnered with Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization that focuses on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Bright Pink's innovative programs equip, educate, and empower young women to be proactive by reducing their risk or detecting these diseases at early, non life-threatening stages.

Through this partnership, Churchill Downs will donate $50,000 to Bright Pink, to be used towards the education, support, and empowerment of young women nationwide in prevention of breast and ovarian cancer. Churchill Downs invites Kentucky Oaks fans, like you, to donate, too! In addition to the online donations accepted here, donation stations will be located throughout the Churchill Down facility on Kentucky Oaks Day, so you can make a cash or check donation to Bright Pink and receive a pink ribbon to accessorize your Kentucky Oaks attire!

Furthermore, Churchill Downs will continue to support the mission of Horses & Hope, which is a regional organization that increases breast cancer awareness, education, screening and treatment referrals among Kentucky horse industry workers and their families. Churchill Downs will donate $30,000 to Horses and Hope in addition to $1 for the sale of each Oaks Lily, the official drink of the Kentucky Oaks.
