HART Victoria offers one day and two day Learner Permit courses
and testing. The two day course has been designed for students who
have never ridden before, whilst the one day course requires that
students are familiar with motorcycle riding skills and
The course includes exercises such as braking and slow riding,
as well as cornering and eye direction, all aimed at introducing
the rider to the essentials of skilled and safe road riding.
The HART licence course addresses practical skills such as
straight line braking, corner braking, cornering lines, counter
steering, slow speed riding and exercises which combine different
skills within the one exercise.
According to HART's National Manager, Mark Collins, courses are
designed to cover all aspects of motorcycle and scooter riding, not
just the skills required to pass the licence test.
"The content and exercises delivered at HART courses typically
exceed the state licensing requirements," he said.
"Training new riders to be confident and skilful is only part of
HART's mission, as we are just as focused on preparing riders to
handle many different roadcraft issues and situations they will
face on the road."
