The Total Control 3 Wheel Riding Clinic (Total Control 3WRC®) is a hands-on, step-by-step course designed to teach experienced motorcycle or 3-wheel vehicle riders the physical and mental skills necessary to ride safely on the street. The course is conducted in one day and includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.
Students may provide their own 3-wheel vehicle, proof of insurance and protective riding gear. Students that meet evaluation standards at the end of the course receive a completion card and their Class M license with a "9" restriction. This restriction prohibits operating a 2-wheeled motorcycle.
A three-wheeled vehicle may be provided, if available, but students may bring their own three-wheel trike, sidecar outfit or Can-Am Spyder. Autocycles such as Polaris Slingshots are not allowed in the course.
Taking the 3 Wheel Riding Clinic with a valid permit will result in a restriction "9" added to license upon successful completion of the course. This restriction prohibits you from operating a 2-wheeled motorcycle. To have a restriction "9" removed please call PennDOT at 1-800-932-4600, TTY callers dial 711, and request a special motorcycle learnerís permit. Upon successful completion of a skills evaluation on a 2-wheeled motorcycle, the "9" restriction will be removed.
The 3WRC is FREE to Pennsylvania residents with a valid Pennsylvania Class 'C' driver's license with a Class 'M' endorsement or a valid Class 'M' permit.
Out-of-state residents pay $285 to take the 3 Wheel Riding Clinic and must call 888.601.0613 to register.
A long-sleeve shirt or jacket, sturdy long pants without rips or holes, full fingered street-specific motorcycle or leather gloves, tough, over-the-ankle shoes or boots and eye protection (glasses, sunglasses, face shield, etc). We can provide a helmet, but if you bring your own, it must be three-quarter or full face and DOT approved.

How what you do affects your vehicle's ability to maintain traction and control.

Each class is divided in groups with never more than six students per instructor for lots of individual attention and support.
