Company Info

AMT is a company dedicated to providing veterans employment opportunities while working with our military and civilian students alike. We have trained over 100,000 students over the past 17 years providing the best training for safe and enjoyable riding. Our various training courses cover on and off-highway riding and driving, from basic to advanced levels as well as multi-purpose vehicle training such as dirt bike, 4 wheel, and specialty vehicle training. We use both classroom and range training for the fundamentals and hands-on practice to learn vehicle characteristics, dynamics of rider and bike movement and the proper use of speed and braking.

After the student completes the basic course of instruction there is always the next level of training available to advance skills learned and practiced to achieve any level of riding enjoyment.

Our History

American Motorsports Training (AMT) has a history of over 17 years experience providing exceptional motorcycle and motorsport safety training to the military and civilian students alike. Our legacy began in our sister company ISCI, a company primarily focused on IT Services, where our common owner originally began providing motorcycle training in 2002. As ISCI grew faster and faster he decided to split the motorcycle and motorsport training off into a separate company to allow focus on their primary skill set. Thus AMT was born to continue the legacy of providing the best motorcycle and motorsport training available.

Why Choose Us

Motorcycle riding is filled with emotion, aggression and manly speech, but at the pinnacle our sport is extremely technical, explainable, repeatable and safe. The AMT approach pushes riders past the emotion and gets them focused on their processes, and how those processes affect the motorcycle tires and chassis. Our instructors break these processes down to incremental steps that are understandable and repeatable.

Core Values

Our strength is our Trainers. There are many expert level motorsport riders and drivers in the world, and there are many professional Trainers. But professional Trainers that go beyond holding a certification and become experts in their craft are rare. Becoming an expert motorsport rider or driver takes years of dedication and experience to develop and mature. Let us put our cadre of Expert Rider and Instructor Trainers to work for you.

Service

Powersports equipment can be used for daily transportation, agriculture, law enforcement, fire and rescue, national security or — just plain fun. For work or for play, riding is exciting, exhilarating and rewarding, but as in all of life, the greater the reward, the greater the risk. The shield between you and the risk is your level of training. Can your shield be too big or too strong?
