Essential Braking Skills (Braking with Confidence)

July 16, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST


In our “Essential Braking Skills” Course we have broken the braking process right down into easily digestible chunks, and our coaching team will work closely with you to give you individual feedback and guidance throughout the session.

If you are looking for a way to refine your skills, eliminate the frights  and make your riding more predictable, consistent, and enjoyable, this is definitely for you!

On this 4 hour course our team will coach you through: 

✅ How to build a systematic and efficient use of brakes;

✅ the system of braking and throttle control that professional riders use;

✅ the theory behind stopping a motorcycle;

✅ understanding the relationship between a bike’s stopping distance and the following distance a rider chooses;

✅ Building skill in the correct use of the front brake for stopping;

✅ Building skill in the correct use of the rear brake for controlling speed

Regardless of your riding experience we can guarantee you’ll leave with a greater understanding of your motorcycle and with improved braking skills.

Whilst riders on learners permits will be allowed on this course, please contact us first to discuss your skill level to ensure you meet the basic criteria for the course.

You will need:

  • a roadworthy and registered motorcycle with a full tank of fuel;
  • the appropriate licence for the motorcycle you are riding;
  • a helmet that meets Australian standard AS/NZS 1698 or ECE Standard 22.05 or higher;
  • clothing that covers your entire body (no exposed skin allowed), closed in shoes; and
  • a desire to learn.

About SMART Rider Academy

SMART Rider Academy is a privately owned Australian company established to provide cost-effective training to motorcycle riders that improves their essential roadcraft skills and enjoyment of riding.

With funding support from Queensland Transport and Main Roads, SMART Rider Academy was the first organisation in the private sector to offer subsidised training to the motorcycle community in Queensland and is now the largest provider of post-licence road-based training in the state.

In 2017 SMART Rider Academy partnered with Queensland Police Service to create and deliver the “How to keep it UP-RIGHT” program. This program has now been delivered to over 1,400 riders in South East Queensland and is the model for the new “Ride to Zero” program being offered to clubs and not-for-profit organisations throughout Queensland.

Stephen McDowall, Director and Principal Coach, leads a training team that has worked extensively with motorcycle clubs, road safety and advisory groups and other organisations across Australia and internationally for over 20 years.
