Default motorbike test gold coast

before I start, I've never been on a motorbike and was extremely nervous.
I arrived friday 8am sharp signed in ,a bit more paperwork then down to the
bikes by this time I was really crapping it, He spent about 45mins taking me
through the bikes safety features then off we went sorry forgot to say moped
first, after 1 hour trailing around streets it was time for the 250cc geared
bike again, quick low down on how to use and few handling procedures then
off we go for another hour, when we arrive at base he assessed the mornings
ridding and advised me another 10 hours ridding time would be required.

Sat morning 8am a long day ahead ( 7hours ridding ), we start with a lap
around Nerang centre then off up into the mountains first test would be hill
starts which after a few attempts i conquer, off to the training facility for
emergency stops,figure 8,slow bike ridding,and general handling of your
machine which i pass, off we go for another few hour road awareness
testing.

day 3, fri 8am polish up the skills learnt on previous days, out for 3 hours
then back to base to sign more paperwork which you then receive a piece
of paper stating you are a safe bike user.
take the paperwork to QLD transport and they will update your licence
so if anybody wants to obtain a bike licence and feel safe/confident
i'd recommend training at
www.ama-qride.com.au
