Simply Better Biking



Offering affordable, professional motorcycle tuition with first class DSA qualified instructors we provide the highest possible standards in motorcycle rider training.




Open 7 days a week we use all the latest models of the Kawasaki Z650 and Z125 Range, new bluetooth headsets to improve communication out on the road. We aim to provide you with the best possible experience as you learn to ride a motorbike or moped - all at your own pace. We can tailor make courses to your specifications or you can make use of our ready made course packages.


This CBT Course is designed for those who are renewing their CBT.

 So here are the rules.

  • You must have a valid current CBT Pass (DL196).

  • You must be a competent regular rider.


So why are we doing this?

There are a lot of riders for whatever reasons do not pass there full test they just renew their CBT every two years, this normally takes a full day and is £130 or £170 with bike, and we feel that this is not necessary for most regular riders, so to be fair this CBT RR will be cheaper and normally 3 to 4 hours long.


We do have to cover all the elements on CBT, but this can be done a lot quicker with competent riders.


Course Price:

£100 if using your own Motorcycle £20 extra if you need to hire a motorcycle.


Anyone wishing to pass their full motorcycle test will now need to complete the Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests along with their CBT and Theory Tests. 


This course is designed to teach you safe and correct riding techniques to pass the DSA's practical motorcycle tests, and will help you to be a better rider for life.

The Works Package - £1090

This Includes CBT, Training for Mod 1 and Mod 2, Bike Hire and test fees.

We are currently unable to offer this course in Peterborough but stay tuned as we have some exciting news coming soon!



Anyone wishing to ride on the road as a learner moped or motorcycle rider or is planning to take their full motorcycle test, must first complete a CBT. The CBT training we provide is based on a six hour lesson, broken down into four hours off-road training and a minimum of two hours on-road training.

During the first four hours of the CBT you will learn about the motorcycle and how to control it, as well as listening to talks on road safety and equipment. Once you and your instructor feel you are ready, you then move on to two hours of on-road tuition under close supervision. After this and if your instructor is confident of your ability to ride a motorbike or scooter unaccompanied, you will be awarded your CBT certificate (DL196).

your riding technique over the three-and-a-half-hour training course on a purpose-laid, twisty

bad riding habits.

Choose from either a morning or afternoon group and you be guided through a range of
theory and practical exercises in a controlled environment, that includes:

 Emergency breaking
Hazard avoidance

Slow speed control manoeuvres.
