Basic Handling Skills

This course is required as the first step toward your Learner's Licence

The Basic Handling Skills Course

Our Basic Handling Skills Course is designed to ensure that you are able to safely ride a motorcycle before you sit your learner's licence theory test. 

The course will test your ability to look, signal, complete head checks, hold a correct lateral position, control the motorcycle, control your speed and park correctly. These abilities will be tested in a number of conditions such as moving off, riding straight, taking a variety of corners, stopping, parking and emergency stopping. 

Course Fee: Prepay Course


Includes Motorcycle and Helmet provided

(Covered shoes, long pants, long sleeves required)

Test Guide:

Our instructor will give you a practical training session and then assess your ability to complete these tasks safely and correctly. Once completed you will be issued with a NZTA Motorcycle Competency Certificate for the Basic Handling Skills test. This certificate can then be presented to VTNZ/AA to start your application for your Motorcycle Learners Licence.

The course will take 1 - 2 hours depending on ability levels.
A LAMS approved motorcycle will be provided for the training and test.
