Dirt Bike Basics

Select Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, or Mondays March through October.

In an effort to best meet your needs, we offer two different Dirt Bike Basic classes for everyone (ages 12 and older). One we call “New Riders” – this means that not only are you new to dirt bikes but to motorcycles in general. If you do not have experience or comfort using a motorcycle clutch, then this is the class for you. The second class we call “Clutch Capable”, which is just what it sounds like- if you are new to dirt bikes but already know now to use a motorcycle clutch then you should register for this class. Students may also register for both days (at a discounted rate) since she/he will be “clutch capable” by the end of the first class. 

We provide the dirt bike! At registration, you will provide your age, height, weight, and experience level to determine what size motorcycle to put you on. Ages 12 and up welcome! 

We have a fleet of Hondas including  125cc, 125cc (Big Wheel), 150cc, 230cc displacement bikes for you to try! No need to buy a bike before you get to try riding. We also have helmets, goggles, gloves and pads you may borrow. Even if you’ve never been on any kind of motorcycle, come join us, we’ll teach you everything you need to know.  And if you’re already a street rider, your skills and confidence will only improve as a result of this course!


Classes are located in King George, VA 22485, USA, directly on the bank of the Potomac River in King George Virginia, about 60 miles south of Washington D.C.

DC Dirt Camp can be accessed via I95 South in VA or Rt 301 through MD to help you avoid traffic from DC southbound on weekends.

One-day or two-day class, on select Saturdays, Sundays, or full weekends April through November, rain or shine!
