The world holds countless exciting, exotic and fascinating possibilities when you're on two wheels – and BMW Rider Training is here to help you discover them. From taking your very first steps to setting off on an once-in-a-lifetime adventure, BMW Rider Training will be with you.

We've helped many riders to pass their test and embark upon their motorcycling adventure. They chose BMW Rider Training because we offer an unparalleled service. Our friendly and experienced instructors will take you through the stages required to get your licence – from your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) through to your Direct Access test - and become a confident, safe and happy rider.

When you choose to learn with us, you know you're in good hands. BMW Rider Training is managed by the hugely experienced Chief Instructor Ian Biederman, ably supported by a team of friendly, expert instructors.

BMW Rider Training is located in Royston, Hertfordshire, an ideal location to take advantage of beautiful country roads through picturesque woodland, rolling hills and open farmland, yet still being only 15 miles away from the DSA Test Centre in village of Hardwick, Cambridgeshire.  We have dedicated facilities, with classroom for theory training and a tarmac practice area for those slow speed manoeuvres, as well as access to the DSA Test Centre to practice the skills needed for your Module One Test.  Of course, we work with some of the best-qualified and most-experienced male and female motorcycle instructors in the country, who are here to pass on their knowledge and expertise to you! 

BMW Rider Training is readily accessible from London (only 40 minutes by train), within an easy drive of Cambridge, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Chelmsford and Northampton and is less than 25 miles away from both London Luton and London Stansted Airports.  We also have a preferred hotel, with special rates for our BMW Rider Training Customers, when doing the courses on a residential basis.

And your relationship with BMW Rider Training doesn't stop once you've passed your test - BMW Road Skills helps riders to improve and hone their skills and techniques with a range of courses on some of the very best roads that Britain has to offer!

Once you hold your motorcycle licence, the full, exciting World of BMW is open to you. But first, let's get you through your test!
