Rider Education Levels Program Details

The Rider Education Levels Program has been divided into four (4) progressively achievable levels. Both the Rider and the Co-Rider are eligible for, and indeed encouraged to participate in, obtaining each of these levels. The program structure is as follows:

LEVEL I Safe Miles (Safety by Commitment)
LEVEL II Tour Rider (Safety by Education)
LEVEL III Certified Tour Rider (Safety by Preparedness)
LEVEL IV Master Tour Rider (Safety by Enhanced Commitment and Preparedness)
The application forms to be submitted for all levels can be obtained from your chapter Rider Educator.

Level I - Safety by Commitment

Level I of the Rider Education Levels Program represents the commitment of the Rider and/or the Co-Rider to practice and encourage safe
motorcycle operation whenever they operate their motorcycle. Safety begins as a state of mind that can only be attained only through total
commitment. Every successful accomplishment begins with a commitment to reach the intended objective.
This is true of the Rider Education Levels Program and includes a promise to learn for the benefit of Rider, Co-Rider, friends and family, and
others on the road. Though there is no mileage requirement to enter Level I. The commitment to safe riding is indicated by the accumulation,
since joining GWRRA, of accident free miles. Members are encouraged to display their commitment by wearing their Safe Mile achievements.
Accident free miles are accumulated in 5,000-mile (8,000 km) increments and usually updated at yearly intervals.
Rider/Co-Rider Requirements:
The requirement for Level I is current membership and the expressed commitment of the Rider and/or Co-Rider to strive for and practice safe riding. They are encouraged to display these patches as an outward sign of that commitment.
Submit a completed Rider Education Program Levels Application Form (Form N.7 or N.8), along with optional patch fee to a GWRRA Officer for verification.
Enrollment is free. Patches are available at $6.00 USD  for each participant.
With your purchase you will receive ONE SAFE MILES PATCH, either a RIDER or CO-RIDER ROCKER and a Safe Miles pin if applicable.
Patches are also available in "Black and Gold" at a charge of $1.00 USD extra per patch.
Updated Safe Miles pins and rockers are available by submitting the N.10 Update Form with $2.00 USD to a GWRRA Officer for verification.

Level II - Safety by Education

Level II of the REP is also referred to as Tour Rider. It represents the commitment of the Rider and/or Co-Rider to be safer motorcycle riders by taking approved motorcycle riding courses at regular intervals.
GWRRA has chosen several educational training programs for the Riders and Co-Riders such as GWRRA Rider Courses
and Sanctioned PLP programs, the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) programs, the CSC (Canadian Safety Council) programs,
and other approved programs. We say, “Go see the experts” for your “on bike training”.  Completing these courses provides the
foundation and skills for your quest to be a safer motorcycle rider. All recognized programs are taught by qualified and certified
instructors. For the Co-Rider, we have provided an excellent seminar program and many areas (including GWRRA) offer participation
in “Two Up” rider course programs to assist in their role in the safety aspect of motorcycle riding.
Motorcycle education goes "hand in hand" with commitment. The "on bike" education by MSF, ESC, CSC and GWRRA for the
Rider and Co-Rider and the "off bike" education (seminars) designed specifically for the Co-Rider, provide a very effective approach
to motorcycle safety. This is when a Rider Education Levels Program participant truly begins to understand what the Level I commitment
means and realizes the value in the program.

Level III - Safety by Preparedness

Level III of the Rider Education Levels Program represents the commitment of the Rider and/or Co-Rider to be prepared in the event of an accident to give aid and possibly save lives. This is achieved by becoming knowledgeable in First Aid or CPR through training and by carrying a first aid kit on their motorcycle at all times. It would be wonderful if we could achieve the coveted goal of zero accidents; however, we know realistically, accidents will happen. Because of this, it is important to be fully prepared to lend aid to unfortunate accident victims. It is important to always be prepared to save a life. Level III of the Rider Education Levels Program was developed to deal with such circumstances
by recognizing and encouraging proper First Aid or CPR training. CPR (Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation) has been used to save many lives. Being trained to render CPR or First
Aid is a tremendous asset to those the Rider Education Levels Program participant will come in contact with daily.
Rider/Co-Rider Requirements:
Be a current GWRRA member.
Be enrolled and current in Level II of the Rider Education Levels Program, having taken a formal approved Rider Course (a sanctioned PLP is not allowed to be used for this Level).
Maintain current First Aid or CPR or MEDIC FIRST AID certifications.
Carry a First Aid kit on the motorcycle.
Submit a completed Rider Education Program Levels Application Form (Form N.7 or N.8), along with optional patch fee to a GWRRA Officer for verification.
Enrollment is free. Patches are available at $4.00 USD  for each participant.

Level IV - Safety By Enhanced Commitment and Preparedness

Level IV is the most prestigious level within the Rider Education Levels Program and is referred to as Master Tour Rider/Co-Rider. It represents the highest level of commitment
by the Rider and/or Co-Rider toward safe riding and preparedness. This commitment is shown by a demonstrated history of safe miles, continuing education and current certification in both First Aid and CPR. These Master Tour Riders/Co-Riders are the finest example to everyone of the highest level of commitment to safe motorcycle operation
and preparedness. Level IV of the Rider Education Levels Program, the Master Tour Rider, was designed for those special caring individuals who desire to "be all they can be" with regards to motorcycle safety. The requirements are more stringent than Level III and require a greater commitment. These individuals are caring, trained and prepared with the experience to back them up. It is realized Level IV is not for everyone, but for those who desire to be of greater service to their fellow man, it is the correct prescription.
Why desire to be a Level IV Master Tour Rider? It's a worthy goal. Being prepared to save a life is a high calling indeed! These individuals are shining examples to the rest of the
GWRRA membership. Others aspire to practice the same commitment as displayed by those who have attained Level IV. For that reason, because these individuals are ambassadors to the members at all levels, GWRRA provides a special gathering to celebrate the Master Tour Rider commitment each year at Wing Ding.
Cost: $35.00USD for each participant (8.00 USD additional cost for Black and Gold)
Receive: "Special Triangular" patch with dark blue border and your individual Master number embroidered on it.
