HOW ABOUT LEARNING TO RIDE ON A TRIUMPH STREET TWIN?

We opened our own rider training school three years ago to try and make it as easy as possible for new riders to get on a bike.  So far, we've put hundreds of people through their CBTs and Direct Access training.

Learning to ride should be a great experience, that's why we'll provide you with all of the rider training clothing you'll need including jacket, gloves, helmet, trousers and boots and get you out on a bike which will always be under a year or two old.

For our Triumph dealership, we've put on a A category Street Twin for you to learn to ride on.  Sounds good?


Direct Access, what's the difference between an A2 and A lesson pack and test?

Really not much at all.  The structure is the same, but what you ride during your lessons and through your test will determine what you can ride.  Regardless of age, you might find an A category bike too heavy and decide on building your experience on a lighter, smaller powered bike.  That said, 95% of our customers will fall in to three categories.

 

1. You're between 19 and 24, and would like your A2 motorcycle licence

If this is you, then first you need to complete a CBT with us, unless you’ve done one in the last two years.  After that, you book a motorcycle theory test online and then attend the test in person at your chosen venue. Then you come to back to us to start your training: you’ll need an average of 12 hours tuition with us to complete the two elements: Mod 1 - manoeuvre training; and Mod 2, riding on the road. 

You take a test after completing your Mod 1 training, and your final test after completing the Mod 2 training: and that's it, you're qualified to ride.

Minimum age 19 (no upper limit)  Qualified to ride any bike or scooter up to 35kW in power, without L plates

Quick summary: CBT > Theory test > Mod 1 training > Mod 1 Test > Mod 2 Training > Mod 2 test

Recommended first A2  bike:  Triumph Street Twin, Street Triple A2, Triumph Scrambler or Bonneville T100

 

 

2. You're over 24 and would like your motorcycle full licence

You too will need to complete a CBT course with us, unless you’ve done one in the last two years.

After that, you’ll also need a valid motorcycle theory test: you book a test online and attend the test in person at your chosen venue - see the link below.  You’ll then need an average of 12 hours tuition with us to complete the two elements: Mod 1 - manoeuvre training; and Mod 2 - Riding on the road. 

You take your first test after completing your Mod 1 training, and your final test after completing the Mod 2 training.  The only real difference to the A2 training is you complete the course on a bike over 595cc producing at least 40kW.  In our case, that means a Triumph Street Twin

Minimum age is 24  - Qualified to ride any motorcycle, of any capacity

Quick summary: CBT > Theory test > Mod 1 training > Mod 1 Test > Mod 2 Training > Mod 2 test

Recommended first A category bikes:  Triumph Street Twin, Bonneville T100 or T120, Street Scrambler and Tiger 800

 

3. You’re 21 to 23 and want to trade up from your A2 licence early

No problem. You must have two years riding experience post A2 exam.  You only need to complete a Mod 1 and Mod 2 test on A category bike.  A few hours of lessons should do it.
