CBTA is not classroom or theory based test, it is an On-road practical assessment ride conducted with one of our Motorcycle Instructors. 

Not only progress through your licence but get real feedback on your riding. It also gives you the opportunity to seek training first before sitting the test.

Go to our CBTA page to find out what the requirements are / for more info.

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


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?
