About Us

The Canada Safety Council is well known across Canada for its work in the development and delivery of a range of personal and professional safety programs, initiatives and safety campaigns. One of the highest profile, and most successful, programs developed and managed nationally by the Canada Safety Council is the Gearing Up motorcycle rider training program.

Since 1974 over 500,000 Canadians have learned how to ride motorcycles from the professionals who teach the Canada Safety Council's Gearing Up motorcycle training program.

Gearing Up is Canada's only national motorcycle rider training program. It has developed an enviable reputation both in Canada and internationally for its excellence in course curriculum and delivery. That excellence has led to several provinces allowing riders to obtain their motorcycle license without taking any skill test other than the one delivered at the end of the training program. Many insurance plans recognize the value of Gearing Up by offering insurance discounts to riders who successfully complete the rider training program.

You don't have to own a motorcycle to take the program. The use of a motorcycle while you're taking the program along with full tuition are provided as part of the fee.

Get the most from your motorcycling experience. Take a Gearing Up program before you start your riding career. The more you know, the more you'll enjoy riding. Contact the course sponsor nearest you for full course information.
