Ready for testing

As explained above we are doing Online testing and in person testing for certifications.

In person testing:
If you are doing testing in person. The first part of the testing will be on the track with your bike. You will need to come to my local track in Lisbon, Ohio. We can also arrange for you to be tested by Jorge Martin, at his track or at your local track. This hands-on bike testing, will consist of how you can ride and demonstrate the techniques and how you can communicate the techniques to me or Jorge. In any areas that you are having trouble, Jorge or I will teach you as we go along. This has been the case with each of my current Certified Instructors, and all have improved and passed the tests. This of course, as been with in person testing. Many of my other certified instructors have done so with the Online testing, explained below.

Online testing: 
For online testing you will receive a list of motocross techniques for you to show on video for stationary drills (on the bike stand) and action drills. You will send all these videos to Gary (English) or Jorge Martin (Spanish or Portuguese). These video clips will be graded and reported back to you. Your mistakes will be explained and done over until you pass. Then the written test will be sent. Once all tests are passed you will become certified. We have an easy way to send your video clips, just ask.
