Pass the Bike Test: and be a Great Rider Too!

More than 50,000 people a year qualify for a full bike licence in the UK, often taking the the plunge to get on a bike only after months of even years of thinking about it.

But training in the UK is very hit and miss, with many schools offering instruction which is poor or even dangerous. On top of this, the motorcycle test falls woefully short of what is needed to produce a safe, skillful rider.

This book teaches new riders how to become confident and safe on the road.

It’s the first book to show beginners how to choose an excellent bike training school, to monitor their own training, and to start riding with a full complement of real-world survival skills.

It also covers post-test improvement, the causes of the most common accidents (written by a police accident investigator) and advice on getting back into biking after a long break. And it emphasizes the fun and joy of bike riding.

“This is a great book. It can help a lot of people.” Charley Boorman, 

“This book fills an unexploited niche. It’s exactly what new riders need.” James Chapman

“Essential reading for anybody learning to ride a motorcycle.” Peter Baker, Motor Cycle News
