NSW FAQ’s

You must wear long sleeves, long pants and sturdy footwear (no steel caps) for every course.  We provide helmet, gloves and bike on the Pre-Learner’s Course.  For those on the Pre-Provisional course, bike hire (including gloves and a helmet) is available.

What happens if I am late?

If you don’t arrive on time, you will miss the safety briefing and won’t be able to start the course requiring you to rebook (and pay) again.  If you are late on the second day, you will need to redo the course (and pay) again.

What happens if it rains?

Whatever the weather, our courses will go ahead.

What happens if I can’t make my course or I need to change my date?

Please contact us, at least seven days ahead of your course, to discuss your options.

If you’re sick on the day, please get a doctor’s certificate from your GP and let us know as soon as you can.

What Happens if my event is impacted by a Stay at Home order due to COVID-19?

Our courses are considered an essential service by most governments, most of the time. If your course is impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, we’ll contact you directly via email to advise you not to attend. If you don’t hear anything, your course is still proceeding, with COVID-19 procedures in place.

I’m new to riding a motorbike – will the Pre-Learner course teach me how?

The Pre-Learner course is designed for those with no motorcycle experience.  If you can ride a bicycle, that’s a great start – ideally you need a sense of balance and coordination.  However, since it’s a competencies-based course, there is no guarantee that you’ll pass.  There is limited free remedial training available but if you think you’ll need a little extra help, book one of our popular private lessons, to boost your confidence.

Do I need to pre-fill the questionnaire? Do I need to print it out too?

No.  You do not need to complete the questionnaire before attending the course. Your instructor will explain the purpose of the questionnaire

Give me a break! And what about lunch?

Yes, courses include scheduled breaks, but our trainers are better on the training ranges than they are in the kitchen, so you will need to bring your own lunch and refreshments.
