Novice CourseMotorcycle training for novice riders on their learners licence.
Get Started from just $165
Designed for newly licenced riders.
This novice course (3 hours) is to help you raise your skills and knowledge from from Basic Handling Skills Test level, to a level you can ride on a road and is a great stepping stone towards our more advanced courses and your restricted licence.
The Basic Handling Test may allow you to get your learners licence, but the test does not require you to ride over 20kph, and you don't have to use any more than the first two gears. At that speed you have not even gone fast enough to know how a bike corners (counter steering), different ways of down shifting or the speed to ride on the road etc. The Basic Handling Skills Test does not give you the skills to ride on a road.
What happens on the course?
The course may change to suit riders needs but generally covers:
Smooth gear changes up and down all the gears
Smooth confident take offs from intersections with left and right turns
Emergency braking skills
Counter steering and basic cornering skills
A short road ride to help your confidence to ride on your own.
