Course Details. PLEASE read before signing up.

Our online course Part 1. ICBC requires 7 hours of classroom for all group motorcycle training courses. The first half is done online, at your home. This is self study material that must be completed before your course starts. It is a series of videos, interactive games, and light reading material. Designed to be as interesting as we could create it!

In person classroom Part 2. The second half is done in person. So bring your questions about motorcycles to buy, safety gear to buy, etc. Meet your instructor and your fellow students and we will go through the second part of the required classroom material.

The Training Lot. We run rain or shine! We only stop for snow, ice, freezing temps, and extremely heavy rain. This is two days spent riding and learning the motorcycles. The best part.

We provide motorcycles. Sportbikes, Cruisers, Dirtbikes, and others are all available for you to learn on and try out. Figure out the bike you like to ride the most before buying one. (More info)

Motorcycle Gear.  We provide motorcycle jackets and rain gear. Helmets can be provided but please contact us. Please bring your own full face helmet (Modular is OK). We do not normally provide helmet and gloves for hygienic reasons. There are 1st Gear student deals at Pacific Motorsports, Honda Centre, and Burnaby Kawasaki.

MST Test Included. We test you onsite! No need to go to ICBC to get this done. You get lots of practice time, two attempts, and a much more relaxed environment to take a test. We can even retest you at a future date if your license expires. You will never have to go to ICBC for the MST test. (More info)

Step 1 of 4

Motorcycle Gear & Motorcycles. You’ll need this! These are our biggest supporters.

What motorcycle gear should you buy? It should be tight fitting, light or brighter colours with vents to keep you cool in hotter weather. Why not black gear? It is the hottest to wear in summer, black absorbs the heat from the sun. You are also less visible.

What kind of motorcycle should you buy? Wait until you take a motorcycle course before buying one. Can’t wait? Go for a motorcycle that is 0-5 years old with less than 10,000kms on it. This doesn’t mean the rest of the motorcycles out there are bad. Buying something newer with lower kms gives the new rider potentially less to worry about.
