Stay Upright M.A.S.T.E.R.S. Course

M.A.S.T.E.R.S.: Mature Age Skills Training for Experienced RiderS

The MASTERS Course is a defensive road skills course initiated by the Motorcycle Riders Association of the ACT, developed and conducted by Stay Upright Rider Training and partially subsidised by the ACT Road Safety Trust

It is tailored to the needs of long-term licensed riders from the ACT and surrounding region only who have not had any formal rider training in the last 10-15 years and who are returning to motorcycling after a lengthy break.

The full day course is held at the ACTs Fairbairn Park Hillclimb Circuit and is preceded by a 3 hour Roadcraft Seminar. The seminar focuses on roadcraft knowledge and development of a safe riding plan for the road. Participants are encouraged to discuss their own experiences on the road. The seminar is held at our Training complex in Queanbeyan at 6 pm the evening before the course.

At no time is there any testing or need to perform during the practical part of the course. Riders do all exercises at their own pace.

The practical day comprises a series of exercises covering safe, defensive riding techniques. Each exercise is preceded by an explanation and demonstration of a relevant technique and how it fits into an overall framework of safe riding. The delivery format is to explain, demonstrate then evaluate.
