Basic Handling Skills

Gain the first part of your learner motorcycle license with our Basic Handling Skills course, including the practical riding test. Motorcycle hire available, or provide your own LAMS machine. You must be able to competently ride a motorcycle, or ride a scooter if you are bringing a scooter to use.

Description

Riders must already be able to competently ride a motorcycle with clutch and gears (you must provide your own scooter if riding an automatic machine). If you have not had this level of riding experience, please book our Learn to Ride course first. Learn to Ride and Basic Handling Skills courses can be done on the same day for confident riders, or booked on separate days due to the steep learning curve.

You can provide your own LAMS approved machine which must be at WoF standard, safe and reliable to use.

Roadsafe can provide motorcycle hire (additional cost), with free use of helmet, gloves and wet weather gear if required.

Basic Handling Skills 'Test Only' option is available for competent and experienced riders who have practised the test. Please contact us to check available times.
