Check Ride

The next step to take after obtaining a Motorcycle learner permit is to complete a ‘Check ride’

The check ride is a session where you will continue to develop your bike control and road craft skills.

You will receive coaching and feedback on areas where you are doing well, and on areas that need improvement.

The ‘check ride’ has been developed to focus on the 5 Major crash types for novices:

  • Loss of control
  • Intersection
  • Same direction
  • Sideswipe
  • Head-on

Duration: approximately 3.5hrs

A check ride must be completed at least one calendar month prior to attempting the Motorcycle licence assessment.

* the check ride is not compulsory for those issued with a motorcycle learner permit prior to 2nd April 2016.

We recommend booking in for the check ride after you’ve done a bit of riding so you can get the most out of this training.
