At BMW Rider Training we operate our Direct Access and A2 courses on an ‘immersive’ approach. With modern car driving becoming a more and more sanitised experience, the physical and sensory complexities of riding a motorcycle can be quite a shock.
Our gentle start and progressive layering system structure to the training we offer you will make incredible progress in a very short space of time. With no experience of riding a motorcycle, we can take you to a safe and competent level of riding surpassing that required to pass the tests.
It is our objective to make the learning experience a fun one. It is a tough, mentally and physically exhausting week, but made enjoyable throughout.
The courses are intensive with sequential full days starting at 8.30am and finishing at 4.00pm every day. Rest breaks and theory sessions are interspersed throughout the days to ensure that you have time to relax a little and for us to ‘drip feed’ the lessons to you at a digestible rate.
Whilst we operate group training of no more than 2 students to an instructor at any time our teaching is person centred within the group so that all customers are attended to as individuals consistently.
We have customers attending our training from all over the country, so it is recommended that you stay in a local b&b or hotel during your course to give you time to settle, relax and unwind after each day. When you book your course, we send out a list of places that other customers have stayed and enjoyed so that you can consider options of where to book into.
Here is the key structure and elements of a 7 day course.
- Day 1 - CBT Plus - A combination of theory and introduction to motorcycling on our private training area
- Day 2 - CBT Plus - Continuing on from day 1 and venturing on to the road
- Day 3 - Progress to and migration to the BMW F750 GS.
- Day 4 - Slow riding skills practice in preparation for the module 1 test including spending time on the DVSA test site
- Day 5 - Final practice and then module 1 test with a relaxing afternoon settling in to further riding skills
- Day 6 - Strategic work towards riding skills centring on safe riding practice (observations, road position, junction management etc).
- Day 7 - Final practice prior to the module 2 test with possible enhancement session on a larger bike afterwards.
The course layout is not cast in stone as each and every customers individual requirements are different so courses are consistently adjusted to suit the needs of those attending.
