Ride Forever Courses
THIS IS A FANTASTIC DEAL TO TAKE YOUR RIDING TO THE NEXT LEVEL!!
RIDE FOREVER MOTORCYCLE TRAINING
The Ride Forever Motorcycle Training Program is subsidised by ACC.
Getting training and having less accidents is the motorcyclist’s only way to actively work towards reducing ACC levies.
Don’t sit around complaining about other drivers. Take the responsibility and look after yourself
Think of it this way, this gives you the chance to get something directly back from ACC, to be safer and get more enjoyment from your riding – how great is that?
PLEASE NOTE: These courses are only for people riding registered motorcycles. If you vehicle is registered as a car you can not use it on these courses. You may have to hire a motorcycle appropriate to your motorcycle license type. Alternatively we can talk to you about our premium coaching options
There is a small non refundable booking fee of up to $50. We run regardless of the weather as long as it is safe so we do expect you to attend even if it’s raining at the start of the day.
If you can’t fully commit to a course, please leave the place for someone else, as numbers are strictly limited and as low as 2 students per course. Please read and understand the terms & conditions.
These courses are heavily subsidised by ACC, although you only pay a small booking fee their true value is much greater
Please note: ACC have rules regarding repeating courses and the number of courses you can do in a 12 month period. Check the info near the bottom of this page
We recommend that you have at least 6 months between course repeats or next levels so you can practice and develop the safe riding habits you have learnt from previous courses.
