We are The Art of Motorcycling

The DVSA is changing the way CBT is ran. Now is the best time to get in and learn before these changes have to be implimented.

The Art of Motorcycling is a professional, approved training body (ATB awarded by the DSA) and is based in the centre of the North East of England

Our instructors have many years of experience riding motorcycles both on and off-road and all are DSA approved.

Our instructors are also thoroughly trained in the art of giving instruction. This is as important as riding ability if students are to learn properly whilst appreciating the experience of the lessons.

So we pride ourselves on being a professional, yet friendly school with lots of patience and understanding. We aim to put people at ease.

We also have a good sense of humour.... which helps!

The training can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual. We do have some fairly pre-defined courses as per our price list, but can also provide individual one to one or small group courses.

We cater for everything from the absolute novice who may never even have been on a pedal cycle to those with substantial experience who may be simply be upgrading to a larger motorcycle or returning to a bike after a few years of using other transport.

"Highly recommend this place, enjoyed every minute of it from walking through the door to walking out, very knowledgeable and a real good laugh, will definitely be back"

"I never really review things but wanted to say a few words about our CBT yesterday. It was seriously the most fun we had both had in ages. Bez and Nathan were really lovely. Good fun, professional and informative. Bez gave us great little insights into the mechanics and workings of a bike and we were put at ease from the beginning. He was so patient with us all in the yard. Going through everything until we all felt confident.

Then I went out with Nathan on the roads and his instructions were really clear and concise. Danielle went out with Bez and said the same when she came back about him. I didn't feel nervous at all and both myself and Danielle have put in for our theory test and hope to be back for the next stage.

Please pass on our thanks to the lads for a great day. We will recommend you all to any one who wants to learn to ride a motorcycle.

Lisa and Danielle"
