Benefits of Teaching
For some students, learning to ride a motorcycle is a lifelong dream. Helping them achieve that goal is also a huge reward for the instructor. And don’t forget about saving lives. But truly, what instructors say gives them the most satisfaction is simply the look on a student’s face when the light bulb goes on over their head and they get it. That’s what instructing is about.
To be considered as an instructor, applicants:
- Must have a valid driver’s license and motorcycle R Class for 12 months or longer
- Must be an active rider able to safely operate a two-wheeled motorcycle
- Must have an acceptable driving record
- Must pass a criminal history check
- Must be in good mental and physical condition
- Must be certified in basic first aid
Requirements within Queensland to deliver Qride training:
The applicant must:
- Hold a current driver trainer accreditation to provide driver training for a class R motorcycle, or
- Have successfully completed a Certificate IV qualification in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport Motorcycle Riding Instruction) TLI41416, and
- Have completed a Q-Ride Rider Trainer Curriculum Training course, and

Instructor candidates must be capable of sustained physical exertion for a minimum of four hours. Most courses take place on weekend days. You don’t need to be a trained athlete but teaching motorcycle safety is physically and mentally demanding. Instructors are on their feet up to eight hours each day with very few, short breaks. Instructors bend over repeatedly, push motorcycles for short periods and move quickly (jog, not run) when needed.
Weather conditions are rarely ideal. Temperature is usually either cold or hot, and when it’s cold it is frequently raining – courses run rain or shine.
Instructors are individuals with a genuine interest in helping people. Instructors need to observe and listen carefully to students – and be sensitive to their needs. The simple translation for the instructor: “This course is not about me. This course is about the students and what they need.”
When training new riders, Instructors report a marked improvement in their own riding skills! It really is true that “the more you know, the better it gets.” Our belief is that students learn by doing. They need lots of time to practice. What they also need is clear, concise instruction and feedback.
