Learn2ride Q-Ride Mackay unrestricted (R) course

Q-Ride Unrestricted (R) course at learn2ride in Mackay is designed to reinforce riders’ knowledge and skills, and further develop higher-order cognitive skills and risk management strategies. The Learn2ride Qrice course in Mackay is designed for riders who have completed  a Q-Ride restricted (RE) course with any Qride provider and  has had significant riding experience. This is not a beginner course or suitable for riders who have been away from riding for some time. The QRide R unrestricted course is conducted mainly on-road with regular stops to provide coaching and discuss safe riding behaviours and strategies. The Learn2ride Qride R course contains 7 modules that are delivered over half a day.

The course aims to:

  • enhance and reinforce riders’ knowledge and skills to effectively manage riding situations on a more powerful motorcycle
  • reinforce good riding attitudes
  • minimise the likelihood of harm due to inappropriate riding skills, behaviours or risk management.

To learn to ride an R motorcycle or to upgrade from an RE provisional or open licence to an R licence you must:

  • have held an RE provisional or open licence for at least 2 years
  • successfully complete the Learn2ride  Qride R assessment course

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 practise 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.

Complete the Learn2ride Q-Ride Mackay unrestricted (R) course

You must undertake the Learn2ride Q-Ride unrestricted (R) course in Mackay on an R unrestricted motorcycle. You can't undertake the course on a moped, trike or conditionally registered motorcycle. If you don’t have your own R unrestricted bike you will be pleased to know that Learn2ride will provide a motorcycle for you to use FREE of charge

During the course, you will need to demonstrate your competency on an R motorcycle. When you have been assessed as having acquired the required competencies, the Q-Ride training provider will issue you with a competency declaration (Q-Ride certificate). Your competency declaration is not a licence.

Your competency declaration is only valid for 1 year from the date of issue. If you do not upgrade to an R licence within 1 year, it will expire and you will need to do the Q-Ride course again to get a new competency declaration.

There is no fee to upgrade your licence. However, you will have to pay a fee if you are renewing your licence at the same time.
