Free Motorcycle Taster Sessions in London and Merseyside With Get On
Get On are offering free motorcycle taster sessions to anyone over the age of 14 for the next couple of weekends in London and Merseyside - no license needed!
Get On is all about getting people into the spirit of two wheels by providing free taster sessions, letting you know if life on two wheels suits you before booking any expensive training or even think about buying a bike.
The free sessions are this coming weekend (14/15 October) at St Helens in Merseyside and at Erith in South East London next weekend (28/29 October).
Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training for the Motorcycle Industry Association, which backs Get On events, says this is an ideal introduction to motorcycling: “If you’ve never tried a motorcycle or scooter, but always wondered what it’s like, this is your opportunity to do so.”
“Whether you are looking for a way of saving time on your journey to work by avoiding traffic queues, Get On will help you discover if motorcycling or scootering is for you, in a safe and structured environment. You can also get advice on where to go to find high quality training in your local area.”
Once you turn up, you get 45 minutes with an instructor in an enclosed area where you get to learn the basics of riding a motorcycle. You'll get a run through of the functions of a bike – using the gears, brakes and also slow speed handling.
There isn't even any need for gear as motorcycles and protective clothing will be provided by Get On too – just show up and ride.
If you enjoy the experience, which we have no doubt you will, then your instructor will give you advice on the next steps, which involves finding an MCIAC accredited training school to complete your CBT (Compulsary Basic Training).
If you have someone in mind who might like to try it out, they can book a place ahead of their visit to guarantee a spot. Booking can be done by calling 02746 408 040 or through the Get On website. Or, just show up and book on the day.
