Learning to Ride with confidence and skill involves more than just staying on a bike. It takes good concentration, being aware of your surroundings and environment and creating muscle memory through good riding behaviours.

Learning how to balance and work the controls simultaneously, while watching out for other drivers and riders around you requires lots of experience and good guidance.

Most people have bad driving and riding habits that they take through their whole life.  It is so important to learn good riding habits from the beginning to build on.   This will then flow into your driving habits as well.

Our Courses

Our courses are designed to help you pass with confidence and to give you the skills you need to be a safe rider and driver. Being safe on the road and keeping you alive are our main goals.


Pre Learner Course

If you currently have no motorcycle licence, the pre learner course is the first step you need to take. It is a 12 hour course, held over 2 days.  The prelearner course is a competency based course, with pass/fail criteria.


RE Motorcycle Licence

If you currently have your motorcycle learners licence (RE-L) and are wanting to upgrade to your restricted licence (RE-O) then you will need to complete this course.


R Motorcycle Course

If you currently have your restricted motorbike licence (RE-O) and are wanting to upgrade to your open motorbike licence (R-O), this course is for you.


Motorcycle Refresher Course

If you haven’t been on a bike for a while or feel you need a few lessons to build your confidence then we can assist you with this.


Learner Driver Lessons

All lessons are 1 hour and we will collect you from your home, school or work and return you there when finished.

We can customise a package deal for you based on the requirements of the student, after the initial evaluation.


Driver Refresher Course

Have you lost confidence in your driving, or maybe you feel you need a few refresher lessons on the current road laws or various road situations.

Roundabouts, merging, parking and highway driving are just some of the areas people often struggle with, we can help you improve your skills in your own car.


Choose your dates and then book to secure your space.

Our R Courses can be scheduled in after most pre learner courses, so give us a call if you would like to book in.

We can also schedule refresher courses in to suit.

“I have just completed my pre learner bike course, and wow so many things that Mark pointed out that you would other wise not even think about that you can take into all areas of both riding and driving. Big thanks to Mark and Jo could not recommend them highly enough!”

Byron Allen

“5/5 Stars. I recommend this service for anybody wanting to learn how to properly operate and survive riding/driving a vehicle. I just finished my 2 day Pre-Learner motorcycle course and i can say from the heart that the knowledge gained about riding and surviving on a motorcycle has been well worth the money. If you’re thinking of taking lessons or doing a course, just do it. You won’t regret it. Thank you to Jo and Mark, you are quality people.”
