We will teach you how to account other road users, their actions and teach you to avoid incidents by riding defensively.

This course is targeted at inexperienced riders, the aim of the day is to enhance your ability and confidence.

Bike handling skills create a solid foundation on this course and you will also be taught how to steer the motorcycle correctly. Counter steering is an essential skill that all riders must understand and master.

We will also guide you through the correct use of braking and different techniques to ensure motorcycle stability at all times. This ranges from slowing down from higher speeds and also how to control the motorcycle when riding slowly.

What Our Customers Say

Finally I’ve got round to thanking all the RMT staff for enabling me to pass 1st time (with a clean sheet), a testament to the high level of skill you guys have. A special thanks to the girls on reception, to Tom who took me through 125, Colin on day 1 of the big bike and Trevor on day 2, they all gave me tons of confidence and i felt ready. 

A final mention to Simon who on the morning of my test, settled my nerves – an hour later euphoria!!!!  I’m still smiling. I’ve bought a CBR 600 and am loving it. It was a great feeling when the L plates came off. I will be back soon to complete the Enhanced Rider Scheme.
