 Novice Rider Courses

CBT Novice Geared Bike

The CBT for a Novice on a geared bike needs to be taken slowly to develop confidence, so we reserve Mondays for Novice courses. This is where the track comes into its own because you have the space to ride the bike without the pressure of walls, fences and cones. Every novice is different and you will be given the time and training necessary to reach the level of skill and confidence required, to progress onto the road. If however you are struggling on the day we may decide that it is better to come back for further training on the track before making the next step. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Honda CG 125, the ideal learner bike for a Novice.

A1 Licence to be taken on a 125cc and candidates must be at least 17 years of age. 5 or 6 sessions depending on progress.

This course is normally spread over a period of 3 weeks to suit the rider but would generally have to start on a Monday, which is reserved for Novice courses. The course includes your CBT on the first day and the next 2 sessions are geared to develop your confidence and skill levels, with the majority of the time spent on session 3 devoted to preparing for the Module 1 Test. The 4th session will include your Module 1 test and training around the areas of Kings Lynn where you are likely to go on your Module 2 Test. On the final session we return to Kings Lynn and you will get at least 3 mock test runs around the town before taking your Module 2 Test. 

After passing the test you can still only ride a 125cc machine but of course you can remove the L plates and can take a pillion passenger.

Taking the next step!

Honda CB400 Super Four, silky smooth and low seat hight make this the ideal bike for the A2 Licence.

A2 Licence to be taken on a bike of at least 395cc and between 25kW and 35kW and candidates must be at least 19 years of age, 5 or 6 sessions depending on progress. This could be the ideal category for a smaller Lady who might feel intimidated by a 600cc bike.

Normally scheduled over 3 weeks to suit the pupil, this also commences with your CBT on the first day, which would usually be on a Monday. The next 2 sessions are on a 125 and are geared to develop your confidence and skill level. We move onto the 400 on session 4 and this would start off with time on the track to get you used to the bigger machine and we would practice all of the manoeuvres required to pass the Module 1 Test . The 5th session will include your Module 1 test and training around the areas of Kings Lynn where you are likely to go on your Module 2 Test. On the final session we return to Kings Lynn and you will get at least 3 mock test runs around the town before taking your Module 2 Test. 

After passing the A2 test you can ride a bike restricted to 35kW, so long as it hasnt been restricted by more than half it's original power and either 2 years after passing the A2 or when you get to 24 you can then do the A test (Direct Access)

Then the final hurdle, to be totaly unrestricted!

Honda CBF600N, smooth four cylinder engine and enough power to give it that big bike feel for the A Licence.

A Licence, (Direct Access) , taken on a bike of at least 600cc and at least 40kW, candidates must be at least 24 years old, or have held an A2 Licence for 2 years, 5 or 6 sessions depending on progress.

Normally scheduled over 3 weeks to suit the pupil, this also commences with your CBT on the first day, which would usually be on a Monday. The next 2 sessions are on a 125 and are geared to develop your confidence and skill level. We move onto the 600 on session 4 and this would start off with time on the track to get you used to the bigger machine and we would practice all of the manoeuvres required to pass the Module 1 Test . The 5th session will include your Module 1 test and training around the areas of Kings Lynn where you are likely to go on your Module 2 Test. On the final session we return to Kings Lynn and you will get at least 3 mock test runs around the town before taking your Module 2 Test.

It was April 2009 when the 2 part, Mod 1 and Mod 2 Test was introduced and this has'nt changed. With plenty of experience behind us we have an excellent pass rate and our best run on the Mod 1 test is 55 first time passes on the trot. Well done to all pupils and especially Jody who made it 50 out of 50. Just for good measure he went on to pass his Mod 2 test in the afternoon and he is pictured here with both of his certificates.

 There is no doubt that the hardest part of the Mod 1 test is achieving the correct speed for the higher speed manoeuvres and you only get 2 chances to get it right. We train for this on the safety of the track and can record your speed by radar, so you will be well prepared for the requirements of Module 1.

The Module 2 Test, involves a 35 minute ride around the test centre area, where we spend plenty of time training before your test.

 Alex and Charlie were our first 2 pupils to take the new test and they passed both modules first time with flying colours. They both felt well prepared for the Mod 1 after the time we spent on the track. Well done to them both, it was nice to get off to a good start.
