The Canada Safety Council’s (CSC) Refresher Program is an 8‐hour course (6 on bike and 2 in the classroom), designed to give experienced motorcyclists the opportunity to brush up on their riding and defensive driving skills. After successful completion of this course participants will receive a CSC certificate suitable for insurance requirements; which may reduce insurance rates (check with your insurance provider).
Students must hold a current M or M2 license and will use their own bike. Riders must provide a road worthy motorcycle (capable of highway speeds, 100 km/hr), as well as the ownership and insurance paperwork on the first night. NOTE: A bike can be provided for an additional $ 50. Students should arrive with a DOT approved helmet and appropriate clothing, i.e. jeans, jacket (leather or ballistic nylon is best), gloves and heavy footwear (leather boots covering your ankle – no sandals or running shoes). This training will take place rain or shine, so rainwear is a good idea to have – just in case. All participants will be required to sign a waiver of claim prior (or first night) to taking the course. If you have physical risks that limit you, or you are not comfortable signing this waiver we can not allow you to continue with the courses and no refund will be issued.
