Survival Rider Refresher Course

So you’ve got a motorcycle that’s been sitting your garage for a few months, or perhaps for a few years. Perhaps your bike’s been parked for the winter, or you used to ride some years ago and are looking to get back on the saddle! ProRIDE’s Survival Rider Refresher Course is your first step.

Is Refresher Training necessary?

Absolutely! Over time, rules and laws change, road and traffic conditions change, and as a whole motorcyclists over the years have learned from their mistakes and gotten better. This Group Refresher Class is a full Certification or Recertification program which will help to reacquaint you with your riding skills, as well as update you on the latest information and Survival Riding strategies. Your friends and family will rest much easier knowing that you are taking every precaution to be safe on two wheels!

After a couple of days in the classroom updating your knowledge, you’ll spend two days in the Training Lot riding on school motorcycles.  The final day is spent riding in traffic on your own bike (or use a school bike, no extra charge).

Successful Candidates will earn an updated Certificate of Completion which may qualify you for some insurance discounts.  Click the blue button for more info on Motorcycle Insurance in BC:

As lifelong learners we strongly encourage riders of all skill levels to continue learning, and to challenge yourself each day to be a better rider. Despite your experience if you have never taken an ICBC-approved Motorcycle Safety course then we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.

Is this the right course for me?

Start by asking and answering the following questions:

  • Do you already have a BC Class 6 License?
  • Has it been longer than 2 years since you last rode regularly?
  • Have you been “not riding” longer than you’ve been riding?

If you answered yes to any of these questions …

Then this course is right for you.
