MOTORCYCLE RIDER COURSE - Academy bikes available if you don't have your own | Learners recommended, not required
The MRC Beginner Level introduces you to motorcycle controls, safety, how to balance and control the motorcycle in
preparation for the Intermediate Level. If you've never ridden a Motorcycle before but can at least ride a bicycle, then start
with this Beginner Level before continuing onto the Basic Level.

The MRC Basic Level continues and teaches you in theory and in practice basic riding skills in a controlled environment,
concentrating on motorcycle familiarisation, clutch and throttle control, riding posture and the four basic skills: straight-line
riding, turning, smooth shifting and observing. It also includes a variety of street skills like low-speed manoeuvres, counter
steering, cornering, swerving and braking. The MRC is for those who are still riding in fear and uncertainty, a great starting
point to refresh age old instructions from family or friends. You should also get riding your own bike within a week or two
from doing this Course and consider a Refresher every time you change bikes.

audio instruction while you ride, via wireless communication, before you make mistakes and immediate results as
