The Scooter Survival course takes riders on a range of urban roads and intersections, corners, and riding exercises in a carpark.
Courses are run in small groups, which allows for individual tuition and feedback to help each rider improve.
The first part of the course includes introductions and some discussion, so as soon as you start riding you have some additional knowledge and skills to put into practise.
Topics may include:
All Road Code rules must be adhered to during the training course. Prior to attending your course, please ensure you have read, understood and are applying the Road Code.
Bring your licence with you to the course. You must be able to competently ride your scooter on the road.
Ensure your scooter is legal and at WoF standard as required, and appropriate for your license (LAMS approved if required).
Check over your scooter prior to the course to ensure it is operating safely and reliably, check and set your tyre pressures, arrive at the course with a full fuel tank.
Bring a drink and snacks with you for the session.
Bring any additional personal items you may require for the course.
Wear appropriate protective riding gear, and bring/wear wet weather riding gear – minimum all skin must be covered ie. gloves, warm long sleeved jacket, long pants and covered in footwear.
Courses WILL run in wet weather. When booking your course, be prepared to ride if it is wet on the day.
Please ensure you are committed to the training before you make your booking. If you are booked and do not attend, or cancel last minute, we do not receive the subsidy, and someone else may miss out on your place.
