3 hr course for $150
Q-Ride Registration number: 04S0717
This is a great, budget friendly course to prepare you for the RE Q-Ride. "Back in the day" you could enrol in the RE Q Ride, learn the manoeuvres on the go and a lot of students, who had some basic riding experience, would pass.
The new RE Q-Ride has a lot more competencies and requires you to be more skilled beforehand. You do still get some opportunities to learn during the course, however, time is limited for each competency, you are required to repeat competencies more than once, and there is a lot more expected of you in the road component than previous RE Q-Rides. For example, if you leave your indicators on 4 or more times, you will be found "not yet competent" and will have to complete the road component again.
This course is designed to teach you the competencies required to pass the RE Q-Ride course. Some of these will be:
Correct braking technique using both brakes
Road positioning based on hazards and vision
How to avoid the common sorts of accidents on the road such as riding through intersections, rear-enders, side swipes, avoiding pedestrians and animals, and loss of control.
Ride in traffic up to 70km/hr
You do need some riding experience before doing this course. For example, have completed the Pre Learner Q-Ride or some dirt bike experience.
You must have your L's to complete this course.
