Everything You Need To Know
WHAT IS Q-RIDE?
Q-Ride is a competency-based training and assessment program that aims to ensure participants reach a demonstrated level of skill and proficiency as a motorbike rider.
Basically, you train with us until our Q-Ride accredited instructors certify that you’re competent under the Q-Ride criteria. You then take your Q-Ride certificate to Queensland Transport and they’ll give you your relevant motorbike licence
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET MY Q-RIDE CERTIFICATE?
Good question – because we see such a range of different riders (from beginners to riders who have ridden for 20 years in Motocross and have never gotten their road licence), we have a range of programs to best suit your needs and your budget.
I'M A BEGINNER - DO I RIDE ON THE ROADS?
As a beginner, how we like to start the training is by having you double on a bike with the instructor and he’ll ride you down to our fully secure, fenced and car less private training area.
This large empty area is idea for you to start your rider training.
Only once you’re comfortable and competent (and your instructor will be assessing this every minute he is with you) will you ride on the road – and, to start with, you’ll ride on a very quiet suburban road.
As your skills progress, so does your exposure to more challenging roads. Our number 1 aim is to keep you completely safe at all times.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET MY Q- RIDE CERTIFICATE?
Of course, with learner riders, the time it takes to be competent varies tremendously.
As a minimum, Pre Learner is 12.5 Hrs, RE is 7.75 Hrs and the Unrestricted R is 3.5Hrs of training.
WHAT SORT OF MOTORBIKES DO YOU HAVE?
We offer a varied fleet of well maintained motorcycles ranging from a scooter for our automatic learners and three different types of manual motorcycles catering for Learner, Restricted and Unrestricted licence classes. Our fleet contains:
- TGB Bullet 125 scooter
- Honda CB125e
- Honda VTR 250
- Honda CB 600F Hornet – Unrestricted R class
We take great pride in having the most appropriate fleet of motorbikes available for our students.
WHAT'S LEARNER APPROVED MOTORCYCLE SCHEME (LAMS)?
LAMS is short for Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme – and are bikes that have been approved for Learners. A LAMS bike has an engine capacity of between 50cc and 660cc, with a power output of less than 150kw per tonne. See link below for further information
