You'll learn how a motorcycle works; the controls, maintenance and safety checks you should conduct before riding including how to move and park your bike.
The instructor will start from scratch and teach you the core skills of how to stop, start, turn and brake. You'll also learn the basic observations you should make and spend time learning clutch control and gear changing (on a manual motorcycle).
In order to take the Introduction to motorcycling course, you must meet the following requirements:
The introduction to motorcycling course is not a valid licence, so you are not legally entitled to ride a motorcycle on the road after the course. The next step is to complete the CBT course to be able to ride on the road.
The introduction motorcycle lesson follows the same format as the beginning of the CBT. Introducing you to the most basic skills and techniques you will need to ride a motorcycle and progress on to the CBT.
This includes the controls of the motorcycle, how to sit and balance yourself on a motorcycle, how to put the motorcycle on its stand and take it off again too, clutch control and gear selection and how to ride and turn the motorcycle.
It's a relaxed and introductory session designed to give you a taster of what riding on two wheels is like.
The course is ideal for anyone looking to practice riding ahead of taking the CBT, especially for new riders planning to ride a geared motorcycle with no previous experience.
