Rider Enhancement Course

Perth Hills Motorcycle Training runs a full day course to teach you advanced road riding techniques that will save you out there in the wild. This course goes much further than the DOT approved standard and will drastically improve your riding skills making you a much safer rider.

When participating in our Rider Enhancement Course you'll find yourself undertaking a series of exercises on the skid pan teaching you about correct cornering and vision, braking techniques, low speed control and higher speed counter steering.

We start the day in the classroom for a theory session that covers a vast range of important topics including hazard perception / response, motorcycle road worthiness, correct posture among so much more.

The final hour of the course we will take to the full road circuit. Getting out on the track is a fantastic way to put all the training you absorb throughout the day into action and you will also have loads of fun at the same time.

Come and learn in a relaxed, safe and car free environment, where you will be taught and assessed by our friendly, dedicated and qualified instructors. Check out our awesome little promo video, it's worth it...

Who can go?

Well anyone really, our course is aimed at all levels of riders, as long as you hold an RE or R Class License then please do join us! Every motorcycle rider no matter how long you've been riding will benefit from our tuition.

While aimed at the licensed road rider, learner riders that are close to being ready for their PDA are also welcome, providing you are accompanied by a licensed shadow to and from the event, as well as holding a Learners Permit.

If you are a learner rider and on Facebook, join the WALRAS (Western Australian Learner Riders And Shadows) Group. This group exists to connect you to other licensed group members willing to shadow you when opportunity presents, just post up a request with date and location then see who responds.

Before attending our Rider Enhancement Course you'll want to be sure to:

  • Perform a quick bike check, your motorcycle must be in road worthy condition.

  • Check your fluid levels, that your motorcycle has oil, coolant etc...
  • Check your tyres for wear, make sure they are in good condition, have tread, no cracks, eggs and that the compound hasn't dried out due to aging.
  • Check your tyre pressures and make sure they are as per manufacturers recommendation for the street.

Where are Rider Enhancement Events held?

We hold these events at the Driver Risk Management training facility (formally RAC Driver Training Centre) on Grogan Road near the Airport.

When and how often are these events held?

Ideally we would run these events as often as possible, we strongly believe that we become safer riders by being better riders, but like all things it is entirely subject to demand and we have limited spaces. Currently we aim to run one Rider Enhancement Course a Month and a Performance Training Session fortnightly, we need the word to get out and as the interest comes in, we'll establish our goals.

The best thing to do is head on over to Facebook and checkout the events tab. We post and manage our events from there, so if you give our page a follow, you will be notified of all our upcoming events.

Otherwise, feel free to express your interest by contacting us now.

What does the track layout look like?

The Driver Risk Management training facility hosts a modest tight road faring track which closely resembles conditions you'd find in every day road riding, making it perfect for our rider training courses. While the overall geometry is fairly tight, it contains a few sweepers, interconnecting corners that curve into opposite directions and two prominent straights which all up, flows very nicely and definitely presents riders with plenty of challenging oportunities to test newly developed skills.

Check out our mud map below... If you would like to see us run a couple of laps of the track, check out our video below.
