Why Choose Us
Our program is recognized by many insurance companies for a rate reduction. Please check around when obtaining a quotes. We also follow Alberta Transportations guidelines for course curriculum and are monitored regularly by Alberta Transportation officers.
We spend a total of 16 hours riding the motorcycles. Approx. 14 hours are spent on the parking lot practising slow speed exercises, gear changing, turns, and emergency braking and collision avoidance. We also spend 2.5 hours of training via a live virtual classroom where we discuss road strategies, types of motorcycles, clothing, and motorcycle dynamics. There is also time for a little Q&A.
We keep our classes small enough to keep a close eye on student progression. With having 2 licensed instructors on the course at all times, this allows us to assist a student if they experience difficulties during the class. This also allows us to maintain continuous movement of all students without having to wait for a student to complete an exercise before someone else is able to start that exercise.
To cement all the skills that you have learned over the weekend, we invite students on a road ride to feel that wind in their face. This is completed on the second day and is at the discretion of the senior instructor. If the student has demonstrated competency of the motorcycle and feels like they have the skills to handle the motorcycle on the open road, we head out in small groups with a lead and tail instructor guiding the group.
We offer several styles of motorcycles to ride during the training course. You may come in thinking you want a sport bike and feel more comfortable on a cruiser or even an enduro! Having multiple options allows students to try before they buy, which could be an expensive mistake!
