We are most commonly asked two questions:

1. How much will it cost to get my licence?

2. How long will it take to get my licence?


 

 The answers are, like most motoring-related questions; “It Depends!”

Hopefully the tables below will give you an idea as to how much it is likely to cost to obtain the necessary sections of training certification, which will apply in many cases.  As to the actual total number of training sessions, and elapsed time it may take to achieve passes at all levels, that will very much depend on the individual.

We do not run ‘intensive’ courses at Shireoak, simply because we do not believe those formats of training are conducive to producing the safest riding technique, as well as sufficient training to be able to demonstrate adequate skills at examination.  Most people find it much better to have breaks of at least 2 days in between sessions, as more of the information taught will ‘stick’, providing the customer with the best value for their money, as well as being better equipped to handle a larger machine correctly and safely.

Our CBT cost includes up to 2 hours of pre-CBT training whereby our instructors will assess your abilities and if needs be, instruct you on the bike of your choice so that all trainees, no matter how experienced they are, will be of a minimum standard when attending for their CBT.  This benefits all trainees in the form of either not being under pressure in front of other more experienced riders on the one hand, or experienced riders not having their day of training extended unnecessarily on the other.  There is a lot to cover on a CBT day, and it can be both mentally and physically taxing for novice riders.  We have found that this separation of training ensures all of our CBT days run smoothly for all our trainees, meaning far fewer requirements (and the expense to the trainee) of re-visits being required.

For a variety of reasons, additional costs may be incurred at Items 1, 2 and 3, dependant on how the rider progresses.  Typically, this would add between £120 and £180 to the cost of training.  Failing tests is the most costly element, for obvious reasons, but we wouldn’t allow you to present yourself for examination if we hadn’t trained you and seen you riding competently already, meaning all students are always more than capable of passing the relevant tests.

PLEASE NOTE:

* Prices correct as of Monday 13th September 2021.  Prices are subject to change for a variety of reasons, so it is always best to check with us before planning your training.
