For those who have no experience in riding a motorcycle, we suggest that they start on the scooter and then proceed accordingly.
The first lesson is to familiarise with the bike controls and learn the bike handling in a parking area, then we have to do the handling manoeuvres required for the practical drive test, then we proceed with lessons on public roads.
Appropriate clothing is recommended. Candidates are asked to wear sturdy shoes - no sandals, flip-flops or heels. Not Allowed: shorts or skirts. It is highly recommended to wear jeans, or protective motorcycle trousers, and also a long-sleeved protective jacket. We will supply the helmet, gloves and a fluorescent vest for the lessons.
Lessons are held on a one to one basis. The amount of lessons required depends greatly on the ability of the individual candidate. We recommend that the candidates have a basic knowledge of bicycle balance before learning to drive a motorcycle.
Each lesson costs: €14 and lasts 30 minutes.
Application for the permit: €60.00
