Three Hour Introduction

Have You Ever Wondered If Motorcycling Is For You?

Isn't it time you got the answer to that question?

Our three hour introductory course will put you in the rider's seat and get you moving under power.

You will learn about low speed balancing and braking, starting, clutch control and moving off, all in a controlled environment with expert guidance.

This course is intended for those people who have always wondered if motorcycling is something they should consider for themselves. It offers these new riders the opportunity to explore the experience without making a huge commitment of their time or money before he or she is convinced this is something they still wish to pursue.

“I just completed the M1 training course to achieve my M2 this past weekend and I cannot say enough great things about the trainers in the Oakville Sheridan course. Where do I start? I had ridden for about 2 years before having an accident and haven't gotten back on in about 10 years. I had apprehension about even sitting back on a bike, let alone completing emergency breaking and swerving maneuvers, but within the first few hours of my training, I recognized the incredible professionalism and patience the instructors had that would push me outside of my comfort zone with a gradual approach. My specific group instructors were Al, Brad, and Bilal ... I couldn't have asked for nicer, more patient instructors. They have answered every question I could think of and helped me get over the block I had since having my accident. The other group had fabulous instructors as well, but my time with them was limited (John, Cool John, and Al). Ian was always there to round out the conversation and set expectations and helped us become confident riders. The tendency to beat myself up over small mistakes would have cost me the whole weekend ... most specifically, big Al, Brad, and Bilal helped me get through that piece. I still have a long way to go with my comfort level, but I am much more confident in hopping back on with the knowledge and skills I have gained over this weekend. Thank you, Al, Brad, Bilal and Ian ... a SERIOUSLY fantastic job this weekend!!!”
