How to get a motorcycle license

Guide to getting a motorcycle license

Thinking about getting a motorbike license? Not sure how or where to start? This should help!

Basic training

You have your provisional license, but before being let out on the open road you must complete compulsory basic training. This costs around £70 to £100 and allows you to get a feel for the bike, riding around cones and learning the basics of motorcycle handling.  This basic training means that every learner driver has some level of competency and it is valid for 2 years. You won't need to have your own bike or leathers for this, as they are available to hire at the training centres. Don't confuse this basic training with a test, it's not the same and there is no way you can fail.
