Rider Safe, the State Government's compulsory pre-licence motorcycle training course, teaches basic and advanced motorcycle skills, and offers refresher training for experienced motor cyclists.
Features of the new facility include a larger training range with a smoother surface and larger run off areas, making for safer, more efficient riding.
There has been a steady demand for Rider Safe training in Whyalla and anticipates that the new and improved facility will cater for present and future needs.
Rider Safe aims to improve safety for motor cyclists and ensure that they understand the importance of safe road use.
The project has supported employment opportunities in Whyalla by using local Rider Safe Instructors to conduct courses and local sub-contractors during construction.
Rider Safe courses are conducted on weekends and bookings can be made by contacting telephone 1800 018 300.
The new upgrade is part of the $635 000 Rider Safe upgrade, funded by the State Government.
