Places Still Available For Rider Training At HART Brisbane

18 November 2009 - With summer just around the corner, plenty of people from all walks of life are starting to think about getting their motorcycle licence.

Many like the idea of swapping to a more affordable means of commuting, whilst others look forward to a day out riding with friends and family in the country.

With Queensland being one of the largest markets for motorcycle sales nationally, Honda’s latest rider training centre – HART Brisbane Airport – is gearing up for a busy summer period, and still has places available in their various learner permit and licence courses.

Brisbane HART is the fourth national centre in Honda’s network and delivers Q-RIDE licence training and assessment and services.

Five time 500cc Champion Mick Doohan officially opened the new centre over a year ago, noting the importance of having internationally recognised rider training available in the area, as well as the unique training provided via the Honda Riding Simulator.

HART, arguably Australia's leading rider training provider with over 17,000 students per year, concentrates on giving its riders a lot more than just pure riding skills.

By using a Riding Simulator to provide introductory skills and hazard perception HART riders are better equipped to ride in traffic and deal with road hazards.

The Simulator is a computer driven, easy-to-use device that puts riders in real-life road traffic situations.
The realistic set up provides a wide variety of options from city riding to touring on small, medium or large capacity machines, as well as with a manual or automatic (i.e. scooter) transmission.

HART also operates in Victoria and NSW, is fully owned and run by Honda Australia who, apart from being a subsidiary of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, is also one of the world’s largest trainers of motorcyclists.
