RIDE FOREVER

The only nationally available, certified rider coaching in New Zealand, delivered by experts.

From learning how to keep yourself safe on the daily commute to honing the most advanced riding techniques, there's a Ride Forever course to suit your needs. Ride Forever courses also support NZTA's Competency-based Training and Assessment requirements for licensing.   

While each course delivers important skills on its own, the full complement is designed to help you progress to a higher level. So, if you start at Urban/Commuter or Bronze, you can advance through Silver to Gold level, taking a maximum of two courses per year along the way (only one Gold course is permitted each year). Once there, you can continue to take a Gold refresher course each year.
