Select All Regions

Scroll down to Fort Carson

Select the course you need on a date with availabilities. Make sure that you arrive early and you've got all your paperwork (insurance, registration, license, past MSF cards, etc), or you may be turned around and your slot given to someone else.

The courses fill up fast though, so sign up for one as soon as you can. They only post classes for about 2-3 months out, and update the course availabilities about once a month.
Geez I just checked for myself to see about signing up for an ERC course, and they've only got through early December posted...nothing showing after that. I see the Division Safety Officer all the time...I'll hit him up about getting the MSF guys to update and add more classes.

Does anyone know the location for the saftey office to obtain the permit once the brc is complete? All google searches have failed.

If you're talking about a place on post, there isn't one. They don't do vehicle registration anymore on post. It's all on the honor system that you've taken the necessary courses and actually have a license to ride. Your unit is supposed to check to make sure you've got a license and are insured. You can go register yourself and your ID card to allow you to swipe your card at the gates...useful for getting on post quicker, particularly on weekends with fewer lanes open at the gates, but in the morning rush to get on post, almost all the lanes are open at all gates, and they check everyone's ID. That can be done at what used to be the vehicle registration office just outside Gate 1.

If you're talking about licensing, like getting a Colorado Driver's License, go to http://www.colorado.gov/revenue/dmv and browse around there for drivers license info, vehicle registration, etc.

If you have any vehicles that are from out of state that you want to register in Colorado, you'll have to get a VIN inspection done. Google that, and you can find places to do it. Also, if you're not originally from Colorado and you're registering vehicles here, make sure to bring with you a copy of your orders assigning you to a base in Colorado, your LES, and fill out a form found on the DMV website...it's a nonresidence military exemption form that can reduce your registration fees substantially. You have to do this in person at one of the DMV offices, even if it's a renewal, to avoid paying hefty registration costs. The office just off of Powers is really busy all the time, and the downtown office is small with long lines. I haven't been to the others in town.

That is around the 4,Mile riding area. Basicly the valley from just north of Buena Vista to Salida. This is on the east side of the valley. Lots of trails, lots more of roads like in the picture.

Finally got my bike road legal. I need to test the bike on bike first as I may need to make clutch and brake adjustments, so excited but not about the cold.
