Geared & automatic bike / scooter lessons : £40 per hour



These lessons are very popular and are conducted in the safety of Gloucester's largest CBT training area.  You get two hours of relaxed instruction on all the basics, how to pull away & stop, ride using slow control techniques and if you choose a geared machine you'll learn how to change up and down the gears.

You'll also get the hire of a bike and helmet included in your fee.

It's a great way to get started on an automatic or manual machine. 

If you have done a CBT on an automatic machine and would like to go on and take a restricted or full licence on a geared bike, or if you just want to swap from an automatic machine to a geared bike then why not try a 2 hour geared lesson? 

One to one lessons available on request contact us now to find out more.
