New Rider Courses

Motorcycle Lessons

New Rider CourseNever ridden a motorcycle before? In line with the Driving Standards Agency’s ideal of structured, modular training over a period of time, here at ART, we offer a variety of courses designed with the individual in mind to give you the very best start, making your motorcycle lessons safe and enjoyable. New Rider Courses are a 90 minute one on one motorcycle lesson

One of our qualified instructors will teach you on our 18,000 sq ft secure, off road training pad, with no pressure of having to do well in front of a group of strangers, very important if you are at all nervous or anxious about riding a motorcycle for the first time.
ART first started running our New Rider Courses in 2007, nice to see a few others running them now. They do say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery! But do they use only fully qualified motorcycle rider trainers or just DVSA approved ones?

Safe Motorcycle Off Road Area






We cannot recommend strongly enough the value of this course if you have little or no previous motorcycle experience. Included in the course price is, motorcycle or scooter hire, ALL motorcycle safety clothing and helmet use, and protection from any insurance excess, giving you total peace of mind to relax and enjoy learning to ride. If you have ridden before but are "rusty" or would like an introductory lesson, a 90 minute course is the idea start..

Motorcycle lessons for 17 years upwards.

If you have never ridden a manual bike before (with clutch & gears) our New Rider Course will give you the skills and confidence to move onto taking your CBT with ease, you will receive personal tuition in the safety off our secure off road training area. You will learn how to pull away & stop smoothly before moving onto changing gears and then slow control techniques to include figure of eights and U-Turns.

Scooter lessons, starting out for the first time, 16 years old?

For 16 year olds who have no experience of being on the road we offer a one to one lesson, the first session is spent in our training school where you will practice you theory test questions and hazard perception video training before spending the second session in the safety off our secure off road training area learning how to control a 50cc automatic scooter.
This course is ideal for making sure that you’re Son or Daughter gets the best possible start before moving onto a C.B.T.
Please note we do not have any 50cc manual mopeds (clutch and gears) sorry.

If you do not yet have a UK provisional licence, you can apply for one here or visit us in the ART office and pick up a form, we can help you fill it in if required. You can apply for your first licence at 15 and 3/4 (3 months before your 16th birthday)
Please note that all training course lengths are determined by the individual's level of skill and competence. The number of days spent on training is advised by our instructors after an assessment of your riding skills. This assessment can be carried out when the CBT road ride (Module E) is undertaken. For examples of how many days training that may be required to reach a test standard, please read the Lightweight (A1) or Standard Motorcycle (A2) training page or if you are age 24 and above the Direct Access (A) training page.
