Our History

Stay Upright begins

Two Police rider trainers recognise the need for public formal motorcycle training and Stay Upright – Australia’s first riding school, was born. It was named after the catchphrase used by the police riders as they left the St Ives Police Rider Training HQ. The first courses were Advanced, offered at NSW’s Amaroo and Oran Parks, on both asphalt and dirt surfaces. These were followed shortly afterwards by learn to ride courses in NSW and the ACT.
