    REA Q-ride providers

    Hi all

     

    OK i've finally got approval from the Minister of Home Affairs  (wife) to do my QRide. Though I'm not going to do my bike licence - will do the scooter (automatic gear box) only. Can anyone recommend Q-ride providers in Brisbane who will do this specifically? I know Morgan and Whacker do though was wondering who else did. Also want to try and get a small class.

    I can recommend Morgan and Whacker. Been there 3 times now. Will be heading back to do my R class licence in a few months time, also planning on doing some advanced riding courses with them soon.

    I know this is a very old post, but I thought I will update it with my Q-Ride experience. I did my Q-Ride on 24/09/12 via Ride Smart @ Northside (Carseldine, QLD). Upgraded my RE-L to RE-A and rode a Honda Dio 110cc. The instructor 'Elliot Stone' was a really good bloke, funny and friendly. The people at Ride Smart are professional and helpful as well. The assessment lasted for 4 hrs or so with 20 mins lunch break and a 40min video lecture. Cost was $270 and its value for money. I did do a referesher course ($70) starting at 7:30am just to get a feel of riding a scooter after 7 long years. Overall, people deciiding on Q-Ride should think Ride Smart as an option as its competitive on price and doesn't compromise on quality. The course as you might know included 5 units in the car park - slalom, swerving, figure '8', emergency braking and slow riding. The 6th unit was a video (40min) with 10 simple MCQs at the end. The last unit was comprised of riding on roads, which lasted for about 45 mins or so.

    No, I am not affiliated with Ride Smart, nor did I recive any brownie points from Ride Smart for this post, I am just a student @ UQ :-)
