R4E Bronze (Tauranga)
Seasonal promotion: Normal booking fees (Bronze $20 and Silver/Gold $50) have been reduced to zero, so new bookings for courses in July/August/September are now FREE.
This full-day course is ideal for riders on a Learner licence or those on a Class 6 Restricted licence riding LAMS-approved machines.
What you’ll get out of it
A sound understanding of road positioning: to better see and be seen, and its importance in cornering. Improved skills in low-speed manoeuvring and braking. Understanding the right speed and gear for any riding situation.
On the day
The day begins with a briefing and safety check then moves onto a mix of urban and rural roads. Some roads will be more challenging with higher speed sections. Practicing skills may take place off-highway with several stops for assessment, including a lunch break.
Ensure you: wear protective motorcycle clothing top to toe; bring money to buy lunch; make sure your machine is warranted, registered and roadworthy; arrive with a full tank of fuel.
Please remove any communication device on your helmet as one will be supplied. If you have a comfortable pair of in-ear headphones with a 3.5mm jack (standard mobile phone size), please bring them along.
