Roadsafe Rider

Learn to Ride

Roadsafe's Learn to Ride course teaches the absolute beginner to ride a motorcycle (with clutch and gears), or scooter (automatic).

It is a refresher course for people who have not ridden for some time, or have had little riding experience, and want more riding practise in preparation for Basic Handling Skills.

Riders can successfully complete both the Learn to Ride and Basic Handling Skills courses in the same day.


Our Learn to Ride course is good preparation for progressing to our Basic Handling Skills course and test. Both courses can be completed on the same day with successful results.

Learn to Ride includes free use of motorcycle (with clutch and gears), helmet, gloves and wet weather gear if required.

Also good for scooter riders wanting to learn how to use the clutch and gears to progress to a motorcycle. Scooter riders will need to provide their own automatic scooter to use.



Essential - You must be able to competently ride a bicycle ie. have already gained balance skills. It is highly recommended that you have manual car driving experience, so you understand the use of the clutch and gears. If you have NOT driven a manual car previously, please book your Learn to Ride course at our Lower Hutt/Petone venue.
