Introductory Rider Program

I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught. 
~Winston Churchill ~

Unlike traditional motorcycle schools, we're focused on the individual learning needs of our clients - and not on a fixed, rigid curriculum.  We will work with you to develop a unique learning program, designed specifically for you.  We'll teach you how to ride at your own pace, and on your schedule!

This process will begin with an INTRODUCTORY SESSION  where we'll work with you to design a custom learning arc to match your specific needs.   You tell us how you like to learn, and we'll design the program to suit your wishes.

It's important that you have excellent quality motorcycle gear for your upcoming practical sessions. As a component of your Introductory Session, your High Gear instructor will be more than happy to accompany you to purchase your gear from any lower mainland motorcycle store.  In accordance with our Best Practices Code, we don't accept any kickbacks or sales incentives from motorcycle shops, so you know you'll be getting open and honest advice from your instructor.  But even without any sponsorship, due to our long-standing experience in the industry, many local motorcycle shops offer us and our clients a 10%-15% discount..

Although your custom training program will be designed specifically for you, it will likely include the following components:

Theory Sessions (between 15 minutes and 60 minutes each)
Theory sessions can take place anywhere; we can come to your office, your home, a local park (weather permitting), coffee shop, or wherever you like. Depending upon your needs, our theory sessions may include a mixture of direct instructor training, power-point presentations, discussion, videos and other learning tools.  As much as possible, we intermix our theory sessions within our practical sessions. 
Total Theory Time
2 - 8 hours

Practical Sessions (between 1 hour and 4 hours each)
Practical sessions are the fun part - when you begin riding a motorcycle.  We book times that best suit your busy schedule, and the lessons will be tailored to your specific abilities.
Total Practical Time
  8 - 16 hours

Our unique 101 Point Competency Program sets the highest standard in the industry, and our expert instrutors will always offer you personal and specific feedback on your skills and riding progress - so you'll always know exactly where your own strengths and weaknesses lie.

Once you've graduated from our program you'll be more than ready to take your final ICBC Road Test, and if you wish your High Gear instructor will be more than happy to help you book your test.  And, at your request, we'll provide you with one of our motorcycles - at no extra charge.  And we'll even ride there with you, in order to offer you any last minute tips or advice.

We stick with you - every step of the way.  Your instructor will even help you go shopping for your first bike. Whether you're cruising Craigslist for a quality second-hand ride, or looking at buying a shiny new machine, we're confident that our expertise will help ensure you get your dream bike, accessories and gear - and at the best possible price!
