At ABC Motorcycle training we understand the individual needs and skills for riding a Moped to a Motorcycle  from 50cc to 1800cc.

We offer free Assessments.

We can save you hundreds of pounds, rather than booking a block 5 day course with another company. Many of our successful customers have only needed 2 or 3 days training. Our assessment will include the day needed to take your test.

We are so confident in our teaching, our success and the new test that we are offering completely free one retest for the Module 1 test. Anyone who has booked a 5 day DAS or more can take up this offer with no extra charges. You get the Test, the Motorcycle and the Instructor FREE.
