With a back-to-biking course, we’ll polish up your riding skills, and hopefully teach an old dog some new ones. We’ll also help eliminate any bad habits you may have picked up along the way.

The Ride Academy back-to-biking course gives you the confidence to get back out there and enjoy you’re riding again.

Not ridden a bike for a while? Feel a bit unsure about jumping straight back in the saddle? Miss the wind in your hair (or what’s left of it for some of us)?

Back-to-Biking courses are no nonsense instruction days for bikers, from bikers, that are made to fit your past experience, ride style, as well as giving you new skills to move forward in the future.

The course

These courses are completely different for each rider, fit to what you hope to get from your riding. If you already hold a licence, but haven’t ridden for some time or if you have recently obtained an unrestricted licence by Direct Access training and wish to gain some confidence on bigger bikes before getting out on your own.

Types of full licence

There are different types of full Licence on offer, to fit what you’re looking to.

The types available are all dependent on your age and the bike you take your test on:

  • AM Licence (50cc)– If you only want to ride a scooter (16yo+)
  • A1 Licence (125cc) – Ideal for younger riders (17yo+)
  • A2 Licence (500cc) – More freedom and choice (19yo+)
  • Full Licence (650cc+) – The only option if you want to ride any bike. (Min 24yo+ or 21yo+ if you’ve held an A2 Licence for 2 years)

Course Requirements

These will be different from rider to rider. Call us to talk about what you’re looking for when you get back on a bike.

  • Your Bike Licence
  • Your years of experience
  • Packed Lunch

The Ride Academy provides everything you need on the day. Bike hire, clothing (helmet, jacket, gloves, waterproof trousers) & all insurances.

You will need to wear sensible clothing – we suggest jeans and boots / trainers. Strictly no shorts, sandals or flip-flops. When you arrive for your CBT, if your instructor feels that you are not sensibly dressed they could reject you for training.
