1 hour training, 30 minute assessment

If you have ridden a motorcycle before but are not fully confident in your abilities yet, this package is for you. With one hour of training before you sit your basic handling skills you'll be setting yourself up to pass.

You should already be familiar with the controls of a motorcycle, even if you are not yet confident in using them. We will cover moving off, stopping, changing gear, riding through curves, parking and stopping in an emergency. At the conclusion of the training, you will attempt the Basic Handling Skills Assessment. Use of a motorcycle, helmet and gloves are included in the cost. You are welcome to bring and use your own bike and equipment, but the motorcycle must be roadworthy, Learner Approved and of course you must have a trailer or a licensed rider to bring it to the testing location. 

Subsidised, certified rider coaching, delivered nationwide by experts and available from just $20.
