Are you getting a good deal?  
   Some riding schools may offer Motorcycle Instruction
   at a cheaper rate but.....

   ARE YOU REALLY GETTING A GOOD DEAL?

Q. Do you really want to share the time you have paid for with up to 6 other students?
     Not fair if someone gets more time with an Instructor than you is it?  How do you
     feel about others watching you learn?

A.  All of our 'Learn to Ride' Basic Handling Skills courses are conducted
     One-on-One with the student at our purpose-built private training grounds.

     There is no pressure on you to perform in front of a group of strangers. 
     We don't believe in group therapy!

Q. What about the extra cost of hiring the Motorcycle from the School?

A. We also supply the bike for you to learn on for no extra cost, there are
     no hidden costs.

Q. How do I know if this is a professional school? Have people enjoyed their experience?

A. Feel free to check out our Feedback page - a large quantity of our customers
     are referred from friends or work colleagues

Updated March 2014

On 1st March 2014 the new Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) courses will be available for those who want an alternative and faster way to achieve their Restricted and Full Licences.  Too see the differences between CBTA and the Standard Practical Test Options, see HERE for an explanation.

The CBTA1 is for those who already hold a Learners Licence and are ready to apply for the Restricted Licence. There is NO MINIMUM TIME RESTRICTION to do the CBTA1 but all applicants are highly advised to seek additional training prior to attempting to pass. You can find the study guide HERE

The CBTA2 is for those already on their Restricted Licence and want to achieve their Full Licence.  The CBT2 can be done at any time while on your Restricted Licence but you must have held your Restricted Licence FOR A MINIMUM OF 12 Months before presenting a CBT2 certificate to apply for the Full Licence

Both courses still require you to take the a Certificate (once passed) to a NZTA agency to process and a small application fee will apply (approx $50).
