The Check Ride Course

Check Rides provide a great opportunity for new learner license holders to obtain additional rider training and riding advice. Check Rides are used to review your riding skills and prepare you for your Provisional license training and assessment. A Check Ride involves an on-road ride and a group debrief with your trainer afterwards. During your Check Ride your trainer will guide discussions which will include road craft tactics and strategies, and safe riding skills and behaviours.
