HART’s RoadTech 4 course is developed to add to, enhance and refine existing skills.
This course is presented in 2 parts.
Part one sees participants head out onto the road, ensuring safety is not a matter chance. This is achieved through by filling in the gaps in your knowledge of road craft. The road portion of this course includes a number of stages where knowledge will be provided on your road craft, acknowledging what has been done well and adding safety tactics to be applied.
Part two is conducted at our Somerton facility, working on and refining your bike control and riding techniques.
