Motorcycle Pillion Riding Course

Riding a motorcycle with a pillion (passenger) can be a daunting prospect, but in truth, it really should not be. It only takes a few small changes to your riding style and bike set-up to make it a pleasurable experience for both rider and passenger. This course is aimed to establish the baseline for pillion riding whereby the rider and passenger are taught correct body positions, mounting and dismounting, slow speed traffic riding and emergencies. The following are covered during this half day course.

  • Smart Rider Principles
  • Phases of Alertness
  • Motorcycle Capacity & Type
  • Legal Requirements to carry a pillion
  • Riding gear
  • Mounting and Dismounting
  • Riding through corners / leaning

Is a Code A and Code A1 riders licence the same?

  • No, a Code A1 licence allows anyone older than 16 to ride a motorcycle or scooter with an engine capacity not exceeding 125cc.
  • The Code A licence allows anyone 18 and older to ride a motorcycle or scooter with an engine capacity of any size. It also allows the operation of a motorcycle with a sidecar, a motortricycle and a motor quadrucycle.
  • Take note that if you pass the Code A Licence on a motocycle with an automatic or semi-automatic gearbox, your licence will be restricted to only riding motocycles with those gearboxes.
  • Passing the Code A Motorcycle Licence with a manual gearbox will allow you to use and legally ride any motorcycle with any type of gearbox.
