Welcome to Empowered Journeys! Based in Tauranga, NZ, we offer one-to-one training and assessment for road motorcycling at every level from Learner licence (Basic Handling Skills) through Restricted and Full licence to Advanced (Roadcraft), and the ACC Ride Forever range of group training courses (Bronze/Silver/Gold). We specialise in small groups and highly-personalised service.

The Events List shows our upcoming Basic Handling Skills and Ride Forever courses.

We offer one-to-one, road-based training and licence assessments (CBTA) on weekdays by arrangement. We also offer an Introduction to Adventure Riding course for those riders who would like to feel more confident on unsealed roads.
