You could be riding on the road sooner than you think.
Whether you just want to get up and running on a small motorbike or scooter, pass your test to get something a bit more exciting, take refresher “born-again biker” training or top-level advanced motorcycling, Newcastle Rider Training is your starting point.
Phone us on 0191 264 5848 to get started.
We are now your local Honda Approved School of Motorcycling. Pass your test with us on a Honda CB650R and you can claim a voucher for £500 off the price of a new Honda at Newcastle Motorcycles! This also applies if you do an A2 licence on our Honda CB500F. Speak to Graeme in the showroom at Newcastle Motorcycles for more details. We’re at the far west end of Scotswood Road and they’re at the far east end of Scotswood Road.
The post-lockdown backlog has now eased off and CBT is normally available within a week or so again. All through last summer there was a long waiting list for customers wanting to progress beyond CBT to get through their test but we’ve cleared that, and we should be able to get you through your test in a matter of weeks rather than months now.
When you come to our premises please be aware that the building is relatively small and social distancing is not easy indoors, so please be respectful of other people’s space. A face covering is no longer a legal requirement but please bring one and be prepared to wear it if requested. You may prefer to wear one anyway but it’s your choice now.
It hasn’t been a problem in the past for you to borrow our helmets and protective clothing but you would be well advised to bring your own if at all possible while the pandemic is still with us. Our kit is still available (helmets, gloves, jackets, trousers and boots) and we will do our best to sanitise it, but shared clothing is not ideal in the current climate so we’re not recommending it! You don’t have to have full motorcycling kit but gloves, a tough, outdoor jacket, jeans (no track suit bottoms) and tough footwear with ankle protection should suffice.
Out on the road we communicate with you via a radio and earpiece so again, shared earpieces – not ideal. Bring your own if you like. In-ear headphones with a standard 3.5mm jack plug will usually be compatible (not with a microphone included though, so a mobile phone headset won’t work).
