Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Do I have to start at Level One?
    Yes, everyone does. This is not a reflection of ability. In order to develop a full understanding, the levels are structured so that each piece of riding technology builds upon the previous. Level One is the start of that process.
  • I completed Level One/Two/Three years ago, do I need to repeat?
    There is no time limit on your progression through the levels. The only thing to consider is whether or not you still remember and understand the material from your previous level. If you’re vague on the information, or can’t remember all the drills and what they were about, it may be best to repeat. If you can recall all the drills, or even better have been riding regularly and applying what you learnt, you should have no problems moving on to the next level. If you’re still unsure, contact our office and they’ll help you determine what’s best.
  • Is Level One appropriate for complete beginners?
    Level One is for anyone that has a licence. If you can let the clutch out without stalling (most of the time) and do the basic control actions on the bike, you’re ready for Level One. Although all riders start at Level One, where possible we try our best to put you in a group of similarly skilled riders so the difference between the fastest and slowest in the group is as small as possible.
  • Will I need knee sliders / will I get my knee down?
    If getting your knee down is your goal, the safest way to go about achieving that is by having your riding fundamentals in place. In other words, understanding and applying the riding technology covered in Level One is the way to make sure it’s your knee that scrapes the ground, and not the rest of your bike. Some people get their knee down, some don’t. Some have done it a thousand times already, and some don’t want to! Whichever category you fall into, the Superbike School will get you moving forward with your riding.
  • Do I need motorcycle license to participate?
    You can participate with an MA One Event License without a State Issued License. Under some circumstannces, each circuit has a minimum license requirement. Please contact us for further information.
  • How much fuel will I need?
    The amount of fuel you use is dependent on the way you ride. As a minimum you should arrive at the track with a full tank. If possible you can bring a jerry can of extra fuel to be on the safe side.
  • Will I be Insured?
    All CSSAU school events are conducted at a closed circuit. You will need to check with your insurer regarding your bike insurance while conducting training on a circuit/track. The only insurer that specifies California Superbike School in their policy is QBE that covers level 1.
