All Provisional Licence holders wishing to take their motorcycle test must pass the Motorcycle Theory Test prior to taking their Practical Motorcycle Test (MOD1 - MOD2). You will be tested on the Highway Code and Hazard Perception. To ensure you pass your Theory Test, Kent Motorcycles offers as part our course, Theory Training Classes at our Canterbury Training Centre - week days only between the hours 09:00 - 16:30. We will then book your Theory Test at a time convenient to you.
Our advisers can recommend the best course for you dependant upon your age, previous experience and of course what type of bike you wish to ride.
Here at Kent Motorcycles Rider Training we encourage all of our customers to take time out, let us know what your experience was like when you did your riding with us. Your feedback is very important to us, it helps us identify where we are doing well and areas where we can improve upon. We want to share this feedback with potential new riders considering getting on two wheels, so please, have your say!
