Our training courses use the latest rider to rider in- helmet communication technology enabling and the instructor and the student to talk to each other whilst on the road .
The Q-Ride Training courses used by all service providers in Queensland are designed and approved by Transport and Main Roads Queensland.
Q-Ride courses are designed for persons wanting to obtain their Motorcycle licence for the first time or those returning to motorcycle riding after an absence of many years.
Due to the small number of students per course, we are able to offer a more personalized training experience which is well suited to the absolute first timer who may feel pressured or intimidated by the presence of a large number of other students in the group.
Our Instructors have more than 30 years of real world motorcycle riding experience and are dedicated professional approved motorcycle instructors, offering individual tuition on either our bikes or if preferred , you can use your own bike if you have one .
Saferider Motorcycle Training also offers additional post licence on or off-road refresher courses, focusing on defensive riding , cornering, braking and road positioning skills.
