The R licence course will upgrade your Open or Provisional RE licence to an R licence so you can ride any size of motorcycle.
The course is designed for riders who have completed the new pre-learner and new restricted licence courses and have significant on-road riding experience.
We are offering this course in this manner so that we can address any difficulty you may have in following the new licencing and assessment requirements prior to being assessed. In short it is a refresher and correction session before the Qride assessment.
The course curriculum provides a balanced program, presented in a logical and progressive manner, with the sequence, structure and timing of activities designed to support knowledge and skill enhancement. The curriculum relies on the system of specifying the value, purpose and direction of training, emphasising critical elements, and personalised coaching and feedback to reinforce skills. The course is competency based, with each competency element assessed as competent or not yet competent; participants will only successfully complete the course if they demonstrate all competencies. The course adopts a blended approach to learning including theory based teaching, demonstrations, coaching and practice through doing. Individualised feedback is provided throughout the course allowing participants to learn through experience. This interaction also facilitates self-reflection and the use of higher order thinking, which positively influences on-road behaviour and attitudes to road safety.
