Residential Training Courses

What better way to spend a long weekend than putting around 1400 miles on a motorcycle learning to pass your test.

welcome to scotlandSo, assuming you have already completed the 5 elements of the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course and have passed the Motorcycle Theory test, we start early on Friday morning. Bikes and luggage readied the night before.

Day One Starting at Clay Cross, Chesterfield, we start our first leg of the trip to Dumfries.

Covering just under 200 miles we arrive at around teatime (ride time 5½ hours plus lunch and rest brakes).

Of course, the route we take is motorway free. So expect to see some breath taking views.

Your de-briefs will be regular through the day with an overview over evening dinner.

Lock LomondAfter an early breakfast we will start Day Two with a ride onto Gourock where we ride our bikes onto the ferry which takes us across the water to Kilcreggan.

Skirting around Gare Loch around to Loch Lomond is something you won't forget in a hurry, I assure you.

We will continue onto Fort William. Now you may not have heard of Loch Lochy, but it's a place you will never forget.

Our final leg of day two takes us south side of Loch Ness to Inverness, where in parts is a single track road with passing places.

A real treat as you can imagine. As on day one, De-briefs will be frequent with an overview of the day over an evening meal.

Day Three starts after breakfast at Inverness Multi-Purpose Test Centre for the practice of the Mod 1 practical test.

Motorcycle training

By now you're riding skills will be a high standard but still, it's nice to have a practice on the Motorcycle Manoeuvring Area (MMA) with the cones and speed measuring device.

Then it's onwards and across to the Cairngorms National Park through Braemar and down to Perth before resting in Edinburgh for our final night away.

As with day's one and two, we finish the day over an evening meal with an overview of the days riding.

 Day Four brings us back to Clay Cross riding through Jedburgh, Newcastle stopping at Darlington to take the Mod 1 practical test.


Having covered a great many miles in and on all types of road, you will achieve a standard beyond what is expected to pass the Mod 2 practical test.

You will have experienced riding situations far beyond what we could hope for in our local area.

You are ready. That said, we give you a week or two to recharge your batteries before we take you on the final day.

Day Five will be spent at one of our local test centres where you will take your Mod 2 practical test.

We don't feel it necessary to teach you the test routes, but there are a few roads we would like to introduce you to before your test.

Just so that we can point out some subtle but key details which enables you to make the best decisions on test.
