A Word about risk:

Motorcycling is inherently risky. Although we strive to provide a very safe training environment, the risk of injury is always a concern. Motorcycle riding requires your full attention at all times and learning to ride can be challenging, emotional and stressful, both physically and mentally.
Accidents do happen, but seldom result in serious injury. Scrapes and bruises are not uncommon from time to time but more serious incidents, although rare, may occur over the training season, such as sprains or fractures. RSAO strongly requests the use of full-face helmet protection for all beginners / learners to ensure the highest level of safety. This provides optimum protection essential to minimizing risk and is a far more responsible choice over “open faced” helmets. You will be required to sign a waiver of claim prior to taking our course (see/download the waiver of claim form where you intend to take the course). If these risks are unacceptable to you and you do not wish to sign the waiver, please do not register.
