Motorcycle Training Taster Session

Price: £49.00 per training session

Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for those who have not ridden a motorbike before but are keen to experience one to see if it is for them.

Why do I need to take a taster session?
If you have not ridden a bike before or have had a break since you last rode, it is really helpful for our instructors to assess your skill level without pressure and see how you feel about riding.

What is involved?
An instructor will be at hand at all times and will guide you through your new biking experience at a pace suitable for you. We will use our on-site training facility, where you will have the chance to try out a bike in safe conditions.

Most students find that one session is enough to give you the skills and confidence to take the next step of the CBT.  If you need another session, that’s no problem, you can keep taking taster sessions until you and your instructor agree that you are ready for the CBT.

PLEASE NOTE: We insist on this for anyone who has not ridden before or in some circumstances, if there has been a long break since riding regularly. 

If you are not sure if you will need a motorcycle taster session, please do call us on 01603 307500 to discuss, we're always happy to help!

If you have any of your own kit you are welcome to bring it, but it must meet the necessary standards and be in good repair.

Testimonials

I have just passed my full bike test thanks to the help of Stuart and everyone else at CJ Ball. Thank you so much, I have enjoyed it a lot and you have done a great job to get me through the test and have been very kind ( I have been rather a disaster). A wonderful, professional, caring business. I can’t recommend CJ Balls highly enough.”

Passed full bike licence with ease, all in one price which made budgeting easy. Instructor tailored training to you and made every part an enjoyable experience

From start to finish these guys are worthy of at least 5 stars! From an encouraging and fun taster session to an inspirational CBT and a fantastic Mod 1 & Mod 2 (Direct Access, Category A) I enjoyed every minute of my training. Every instructor I had was excellent and I deeply appreciated their uncanny ability to instil self-confidence and make every minute of serious learning fun. Being part of a dealership, every bike I rode was in great condition and very well maintained. The positive, down to earth, ‘just do it’ attitude from EVERYONE I met here makes it ALL possible. Excellent value for money. Thank you!

Big thanks to Stuart and the rest of the team for getting me through all the training and all the tests after a gap of 30 years of not riding a motorbike! Cheers.

Passed full bike licence with ease, all in one price which made budgeting easy. Instructor tailored training to you and made every part an enjoyable experience

I visited Cj Ball on wednesday just to get an idea about the CBT, I personally haven’t ridden a motorbike for 25 years! The service and advice that I received in the showroom was excellent, 20 minutes later I was booked on the course for the next morning! Without going into too much detail, the 2 instructors we were taken out with were so good at what they did that they made me relax and enjoy the experience! Furthermore, I passed! A huge thank you to Chris who explained everything to me in the showroom and a massive thank you to Colin who had the patience to get me through!I will certainly be back for the next part of my training as the service and experience of these guys is excellent!Great job, thanks!
