Don’t Waste Another Year Dreaming!

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.

Latest news: Newcastle Rider Training closing down in July!

Please note that property developers Mandale have bought the Glassworks site and we have to vacate the premises.  We have not found alternative premises and so, after 32 years, we will be calling it a day and closing down.  Our final day will be Friday 14th July.  If there’s anyone out there with a gift voucher you would be well advised to book yourself in soon!

£500 off a new Honda.

We are now your local Honda Approved School of Motorcycling.  Pass your test with us on our 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.  Check out the deal on the Honda website.

Availability update:

CBT is currently available within a week, Monday to Saturday.  If you want to progress beyond CBT to pass your test we usually have tests available within around two or three weeks.

What do I need to get started?

Not much!  Just your Driving Licence and a knowledge of the Highway Code.

Our protective clothing is all available for you to borrow (helmets, gloves, jackets, trousers and boots) but do bring your own if you have any.  You don’t have to have full motorcycling kit but gloves, a tough, outdoor jacket, jeans (track suit bottoms will offer no protection) and tough footwear with ankle protection should suffice.

The best experience I have had learning to ride a bike and this was made possible by Newcastle Rider Training.  From starting my CBT right through to...
We're at the Old Glassworks in Lemington. You'll find us right at the end of the Scotswood Road heading west out of Newcastle. The number 22 bus runs regularly to Lemington from Central Station. Easy access by road from Northumberland via the A1 or A69.
