The first section is concerned with the absolute basics: getting on and off the bike, pushing, parking, starting up and shutting down. This is followed by moving off and stopping, slow-speed riding and shifting up and down.
The second section consists of exercises which make up the foundation of operating a motorcycle; students learn techniques needed to execute manoeuvres at low and intermediate speeds. Emphasis is placed on smooth machine control.
The third section employs training similar to the police and EMS, we use this same technique to help with bike control in emergencies and the decision-making process needed in these situations. Students are taught collision avoidance, controlled optimum braking and controlled braking during this section and are also given time to practice and reinforce these skills.
The fourth section is road ride. Students who are deemed by our instructors to be ready for the road take part in this section which takes them on a controlled group ride with our instructors. Ride lengths and durations are dependent on the students in the group and their skill levels. The ride tries to cover all types of conditions beginning with slower, low-traffic residential routes and working up to major roads.
Successful completion of this Course qualifies for insurance discounts.
