1- Trainee Eligibility

Trainees must have a current driver’s license that is valid in South Africa. We welcome learner license holders and regard these as being acceptable for training courses. Acceptance of any trainee on a course is subject to the trainee and any pillions signing the SA Adventure Motorcycle Training indemnity form online.


2- Where our Courses are Held

The course is hosted at SA Adventure's training grounds in the Cradle of Humankind and some of the surrounding areas. Please note that all training course modules must be completed to receive your certificate of completion. This includes the theory sessions and any outrides included in the course curriculum. 


3- Health and Safety

The training is conducted in a natural bush setting on bush tracks in various stages of repair and some man-made obstacles. The course is designed to introduce trainees to the real world of adventure motorcycling and may, at times, place them outside of their comfort zone. However, SA Adventure always regards the health and safety of course participants as our highest priority. The tracks usually used in the process of course delivery may be changed and/or varied at the discretion of SA Adventure for health and safety issues regarding trainees and/or motorcycles. In addition to the motorcycle training accreditation requirements, your instructor has qualifications in Risk Management, Emergency Situation Procedures and Remote First Aid, including CPR. The SA Adventure support vehicle that will be present on your course is fully equipped with appropriate recovery, medical and other equipment for training, demonstration and other purposes as required by statutory and other authorities.


4- What You Should Bring With You

You should wear all your gear all the time, especially your helmet. A hat should be worn, and sunscreen should be used to prevent sunburn for demonstrations while we are off the motorcycles. Water or juice should be brought along for when we are on the training trail itself. Water will also be supplied by SA Adventure. Please note that trainees who arrive for training with unsuitable rider gear will not be able to participate in the training. Please ask us if you need to clarify anything about your rider gear.


5- Motorcycle Requirements and Eligibility

Trainees will use their own motorcycles or a suitable motorcycle hired at their own cost. Motorcycles must be registered, be in road-worthy condition and be mechanically sound.

SA Adventure takes the health and safety of its trainees and clients very seriously, and your instructor has the authority to remove any participant and/or vehicle from the course where the instructor judges a vehicle to be unsafe and/or unroadworthy and/or a threat to the health and/or safety of its rider, pillion and/or any other course participant.


6- Disability, Language, Numeracy and Literacy Eligibility

The course is delivered in English only. However, we are happy to have non-English speaking trainees participate in our courses, providing an approved interpreter is supplied at the trainee’s expense. 


7- Trainee Feedback

SA Adventure requires trainee feedback, comments and suggestions on the completion of the training in our endeavour to continually improve the standards of the training and services that we offer and to satisfy statutory government reporting requirements. We appreciate it, and we thank you in advance for your input.
