Motorcycles used on training courses

Motorcycles and scooters we use for learning to ride

Here at ART we take everything we do very seriously including the bikes that we teach you on. We buy BRAND NEW bikes every 3 to 6 years, not replace them with secondhand ones. Always ask before you book lessons with other schools how old are your bikes? Unfortunately it is not uncommon to find that they will use bikes that are 12 to 15 years old and more, or really cheap chinese imports.
If in doubt go & have a look and see what they offer first, then come to see ours.
Every month (as well as the daily checks) all bikes and scooters are given a full safety check and details are recorded. All full services are carried out by the service department at P&H Motorcycles by their factory trained technicians. We have a very simply policy on maintenance, we do not cut corners, we only use genuine parts and high quality tyres (Metzler, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Etc).
