Test Prep/Refresher

One-to-One training.

If you are planning to take your test in the near future or if you have not ridden for a few years, then perhaps a refresher course with one of our instructors is the way forward.

What is One-to-One training?
One-to-One training is catered to your requirements and is charged by the hour. (See details of the fees here.)  You can combine One-to-One training with other training programmes.  For example, if you have not ridden for a few years and have just applied for a new, provisional licence, then a 1-hour refresher course (off-road) followed by a Direct Access course may be all you need.

Alternatively, if you are about to take your driving test then a 1 or 2-hour One-to-One refresher course might help you to iron out any problems, identify those bad habits you have picked up and revise those good biking skills you need to pass safely.

How much does it cost?
Fees for all our courses can be found here.

Will any kind of bike do?
For safety reasons and also because some motorbikes or scooters are not representative of their class, there are some motorbikes you cannot do your course on.  These bikes include (but not limited to) ‘Thumps’ and the Honda ‘Monkey Bike’.  If you have any doubts, please contact us.

Things for you to arrange beforehand:

Your motorcycle will be checked by your instructor before the course starts. If he is not satisfied that it is roadworthy and legal, he may decide not to let you continue, in which case you will be required to re-book your course for another day. A re-booking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee. (See details of the fees
here.) All motorcycles and scooters must have ‘L’ plates securely fitted in the proper and correct fashion.

Items that you must bring with you on the day:
