Basic Motorcycle Rider Training

Operating a motorcycle, scooter or three-wheeled motorcycle requires a unique set of skills separate from other vehicles. Not only is the physical operation and handling unique, there are also important differences in the way you need to pay attention to surrounding traffic.

We highly recommend that anyone wanting to obtain their motorcycle license carefully read about SGI's Motorcycle Graduated License Program.  The written motorcycle learner exams can be taken before or after the basic motorcycle safety training.Our 20-hour Basic Rider Training program assists new riders in developing the techniques and skills necessary for the safe operation of a motorcycle, scooter or three-wheeled motorcycle. Each session is led by a team of highly skilled and passionate SGI-certified instructors who address topics such as how to deal with the hazards and risks motorcyclists face in traffic.

The Saskatchewan Safety Council provides training at one of the best facilities in the country. Participants in our Basic Rider Training course log somewhere in the neighborhood of 90 km during their 20 hour course. (Something which is just not possible with courses delivered in parking lots).
