Anglia Training Assessments, Refreshers and Enhanced Rider Scheme.
 
 
Assessments
 
If you are a bit unsure about your ability and would like to come along for an assessment before committing to a course, that can be arranged free of charge. This often happens when pupils have been out of the saddle for a few years and feel a little bit rusty. Having an assessment gives you the chance to get back on a bike on the safety of the track and we can soon tell which course would suit you the best.
 
Refresher Courses
 
You may have already passed your test a few years ago but feel that you need a refresher course to get back into the swing of things and here again, the track comes into its own. We would start you off with a brief session in the classroom and then move to the track on either a 125 or a 400 depending on your previous experience and how rusty you feel you are. We spend whatever time on the track that you need to get back to basics and complete several exercises, including slow riding, counter steering and emergency stops. This is followed with a ride out to include a nice mix of A and B roads and some town work.
 

Enhanced Rider Scheme

The latest initiative been driven by the DSA to improve rider safety. After you have passed your test and get a few months experience under your belt, come back for assessment and possibly some extra training. If you are riding at the required standard you will be issued with a DSA Certificate of Competence-Enhanced Rider Bonus Certificate. This is recognised by most of the major insurance companies and should result in a discount on your insurance.

Motorcycle licence requirements from 19th January 2013 Please don't hesitate to ring if you have any questions.

Before any training you must have a provisional UK Licence, then the first step is to take your Compulsory Basic Training. (CBT)

On completion of your CBT, at 16 you can ride a moped up to 49cc, either Automatic or Geared and at age 17 and above you can ride a 125cc bike. If in 2 years time you havent gone onto further training and passed a Motorcycle test to obtain your full icence, you will need to re-take the CBT. Riding on a CBT you must display L plates and you can not carry a pillion passenger.

To obtain your full motorcycle licence you MUST pass a motorcycle theory test and then a practical test.

You obtain a category A licence by taking progressive access from age 21, or under the direct access scheme from age 24.

Law MV(DL)R reg 16

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.
