Our Motorcycle Safety classes are held at our business location at Suite 300 – 160 Quarry Park Boulevard SE in Calgary prior to the riding course. Our business office has a professional state-of-the-art boardroom with media technology.  

Our training lot is located at First Alliance Church, 12345-40 Street SE and is an obstruction-free motorcycle training area with no curbs, trees, or other obstacles.

Student Safety is constantly at the forefront of every course.  Once proficient at riding, we take students on the road, in real traffic conditions to practice their newly acquired skills

We provide motorcycles for the Basic Motorcycle, Private and Women’s Only course.  Student must provide own motorbike for the Refresher, Advanced, Can-Am Spyder and Polaris Slingshot® course.

You will have a chance to ride a variety of motorcycles to ensure you get a chance to try a motorbike that fits you & the different riding styles.  We have smaller bikes, cruisers, sports bikes, and dual sport motorcycles. All training bikes are available for purchase. Please discuss with the instructor if interested.  

Helmets are not provided or rented due to hygienic reasons and the fit & style is unique to each rider.  You will be required to bring a properly fitted DOT approved helmet.

Our course activities are very well organized and our instructors regularly stress safety rules. Still, riding a motorcycle can be a high-risk activity so speeds are kept low on our closed-course location & injuries are rare.

SEE WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR COURSES

If I have to describe my experience with Wheels Training Centre in a few words, it'd be "They are the best!". I recently moved to Calgary from Edmonton. Although I had already 3 years of driving experience in Canada, I wanted to refresh myself and get ready before I started my job that requires driving throughout the city. Plus, I wanted to get rid of GDL from my license. I called 4 other schools, and all were very pricey. Since I got my first license in the States 7 years ago, I thought I should take some in-class lessons. I explained my situation over the phone to Gary, the owner, and he said I should be fine with only driving lessons. Gary has years of experience, and he is very thoughtful! You could see that he's not after your money but simply want you to be a good driver. He even came to my road test as my cheerleader! I passed the test and I'm officially a good class 5 driver!! It's all because of Gary!! 🙂read more

I just passed my class 6 riding test this evening. I had never rode a motorcycle before but within a weekend at wheels training center I was ready to challenge the road test. Garry, the owner and my instructor was really good. He’s definitely passionate about his sport and that is a quality I like to see in a teacher.read more

The instructors and staff at Wheels Training Centre are fantastic. They are easy to talk to, and they teach in a manner that makes it easy to understand and easy to apply the riding principles to the hands on portion of the course. The slow speed maneuvers, balancing, braking and swerving exercises are the key to successful riding in a crowded parking lot and on the open road. Safety is their main concern throughout the duration of the course. The cost of the course, which comes in less than most other courses I found, is well worth course fee. There is also the added bonus of being able borrowing one of their bikes for the road test on the last day of the course. Thanks Gary, I learned a lot and had an awesome time.read more

I took the basic motorcycle course in preparation in taking my class 6 road test. The school experience was very professional with the added benefit of being very personalized. The instructor was amazing and helped myself and my fellow classmates pass all our tests first try! Not only did we learn how to ride, but we learned the importance of safety which will keep us on the road for many years. Thanks Wheels Training Centre!read more

Not only does wheels have the best price, it has amazing instructors. Garry, the owner, has decades of riding and instructing experience. Its obvious that he does this simply because he loves motorcycles and loves teaching people how to ride. The instructors are great at working one on with everyone on the course all at different skill levels to give personalized advice to everyone. Great experience overall, had an amazing weekend. Thank you so much!read more
