Basic Course

Start to ride!
Never ridden a bike? The Basic Course provides a safe and controlled environment where you'll learn the basics of riding a motorcycle. It doesn't matter if you've never squeezed a clutch lever or don't even know where it is!

Whether you're totally new to riding or have only tagged along as a passenger, the goal of this course is to kick-start your life as a motorcyclist. Learning something new can be intimidating and the goal of our highly skilled instructors is to remove those intimidating barriers. You'll find out how with the right support, learning to ride can be easy and safe.

You'll be learning on the Monster 796, the lightest and most charismatic bike in its class. Its low seat height and easy handling make it the perfect bike for a new rider. You'll receive individual riding sessions as well as a just enough theory to make your transformation from non-rider to rider immediate and enjoyable.

The basic course will only be held if the minimum number of 12 riders is reached; otherwise, you will be contacted and given the choice of selecting another available date or receiving a full refund of the registration fee.

The basic course is divided into groups of four and each person will be taught by a qualified instructor. The course includes four individual practice sessions, alternating with theory sessions designed to teach you the basics of motorcycle riding (position on the bike, starting, braking and cornering).

The bike used in this course is the Monster 796 with a restricted engine to ensure maximum safety for novice riders.

The required gear includes leathers, gloves, boots and a full-face helmet. If you can't provide any of these items, you can hire them when you purchase a course online at this site (see the 'Clothing requirements' section for complete details on the required gear).

You must be 18 or older to enroll in the basic course, although a motorcycle licence is not required.
