Learning To Ride A Motorbike In Harlow
There are many reasons why you should learn to ride a motorcycle in Harlow. On the border of Hertfordshire and London, it will give you the freedom to travel about easily and cheaply whether travelling to work, college or for your job.
Harlow is only half an hours' ride away from the ‘Original Tea Hut’ in Epping Forest, once known as the ‘bikers hut’ serving refreshments to spectators and riders taking part in the 1930’s Speedway at High Beech nearby.
Nestled in the heart of the forest the cafe is a great place to ride to with other biker friends or to get some fresh country air!
If you’re wanting to learn to ride, the first step will be to get a CBT. This will enable you to ride up to a 125cc motorcycle if you’re 17 or over and there are loads of options and different styles of bikes available out there. Take a look at our Top 10 bikes that you can ride with a CBT licence.
The great news is that it only takes one day to complete a CBT test so once you’ve booked your training course you could be on the road within a matter of days!

Will I Pass My CBT First Time?
Most CBT test students will ‘pass’ their CBT first time, after just one day of training. Although it’s not technically a test but a training course.
There is a chance that you might be told you require additional training if you show signs of not being able to control the bike or be able to ride it safely on the road.
If this happens you will be asked to return for a second day of training, giving you more time to practice, learn and perfect how to ride.
You will need to pay for this extra day of training if this does happen, which is why RideTo invented the Peace of Mind Policy. For just £29.99 we will pay for your second day of training should you need it! This could end up saving you a whopping £130!
If you feel at all nervous at the concept of learning to ride a motorbike in one day we would highly recommend purchasing the Peace of Mind Policy. Just note it does not cover turning up late, wearing the wrong gear or lack of Highway Code knowledge.
