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.

Coronavirus update:

The post-lockdown backlog has now eased off and CBT is now readily available again.  There has been a long waiting list for customers wanting to progress beyond CBT to get through their test but that has become much shorter now that autumn is here.  So 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.  A normal mobile phone headset or iPod headphones with a standard 3.5mm jack plug will usually be compatible.


Highly recommend Neil and all his team to anyone wanting to do any motorcycle training.  Having passed my A2 restricted test 6 years ago with another...
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.
