I’m a big fan of dirt bike training schools for quite a few reasons.
Firstly a proper training school will show you how to ride the right way and you will be trained by expert riders that have mountains of experience.
Secondly, a school will help you to increase your skills rapidly over a period of weeks instead of years and they will help to remove bad riding habits that can be detrimental to your progress.
Thirdly, riding schools are heaps of fun and you get to meet a lot of cool and like-minded people that love dirt bikes as much as you do.
As well as training and facilities, many dirt bike training camps also offer motocross vacations as well!
A motocross vacation is where you can be booked into accommodation and riding on the best motocross circuits in the area as well as getting tickets to watch pro motocross races.
Motocross holidays are great excuse to take a holiday with your family or friends for an experience that the kids will never forget.
They are also a great way to network and look for work in the industry and an easy way to find a permanent riding coach if that’s what you need.
Also, dirt bike riding schools aren’t just for beginner riders.
Most schools will also have training programs for advanced riders for those that are looking to go pro or to sharpen their skills on the pro circuit.
The schools also offer programs for any ages from kids all the way up to my grand dad.
Here is a current list of dirt bike riding schools from the US and Canada. This list is meant to be exhaustive but if I’ve missed any, contact me and I’ll add you in.
