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:

Hello everyone – we’re back!  We are offering the usual services again but with certain limitations for the time being.

For a start we don’t have all our staff back yet and Sundays particularly will be on a reduced service.  If you phone you are more likely now to be greeted by the answering machine so please do leave a message and suggest when best to call you back.  We could well be busy teaching all day and may only get round to calling you at the end of the day.

Social distancing is not going to be easy so please be respectful of other people’s space in and around our premises.

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 in future if at all possible.  Our kit is still available (helmets, gloves, jackets, trousers and boots) and we will do our best to sanitize 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 can.  A normal mobile phone headset or iPod headphones with a standard 3.5mm jack plug will usually be compatible.


A brilliant bunch of guys.  You'll have total confidence in them and they in you.  Took this 50 year old from total beginner to full licence in a ma...
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.
