Q Ride Pre Learner Course

Are you Eligible?

If you currently don’t hold a motorcycle licence, the pre learner course is the first step you need to take to obtain your motorcycle licence. To be eligible for this course you are required to have held your provisional or car licence for at least 1 year.

What is the Pre learner course?

The Pre Learner course was created to better prepare learner riders by enabling them to gain basic riding knowledge and motorcycle handling skills in a safe environment before riding on-road.

Cycle Right has fully accredited, patient Q Ride trainers that will correct and develop your riding technique throughout the course.

Your Pre Learner licence consists of a compulsory 2 day course in our purpose built training facility (the only one of its kind in Brisbane) not a car park.

The course will cover and demonstrate the basics of operating a motorcycle Start and stop, slow riding, steering and cornering, braking and riding judgement.

The theory modules will be conducted in our air conditioned classroom, with the practical modules on our purpose built Pre learner training facility.

Once you have successfully completed both days of the Pre Learner course and are deemed competent, a certificate of competency will be submitted online by Cycle Right or handed a paper copy to take into Department of Transport. You will then be eligible to apply for your Motorcycle Learners Licence by completing the Motorcycle Knowledge Test.

Customers can sit the test online (Motorcycle Knowledge Test) or, in person at the Department of Transport.

Once you have successfully completed both the Pre Learners Course and the knowledge test you will then be issued your Motorcycle Learners Licence.

New Rider Recommendation

If you have not ridden before or it has been a long time since you’ve been on a motorcycle we recommend a private 2 hour one on one training session prior to booking the Pre Learner course. This session is great for building up your confidence and reducing pre course anxiety before you book into the Pre learner course.
