I already know how to drive, can I go straight on the road?

For you own safety, training will start in a designated parking area. We have a strict syllabus to follow in order to prepare you well for the test. However, if you are an experienced driver you are likely to go through this syllabus more quickly.

What clothing should I wear for my lessons?

You must always wear:

• Helmet (CE Approved): We have a number of helmets available, however, for hygiene purposes, it would be better if you bring your own helmet.
• Gloves: We recommend wearing full fingered motorcycle gloves.
• Jacket: We recommend wearing a motorcycle jacket with proper protection.
• Trousers: Riding trousers or jeans. Strictly no shorts or skirts.
• Footwear: Shoes or boots that provide ankle protection. Strictly no sandals.
• Hi-Vis Vest: We will provide you with a high-visibility vest which must be worn at all times during the lesson.

You must also bring a set of headphones when you start training on the road. Your instructor will advise you accordingly.

What is your policy with regards to bookings?

At ThrottleX we are very flexible in order to accommodate your needs. We are open from Monday to Saturday and you can book your lessons on the day and at the time which is most convenient for you.

Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance. Short notice cancellations will be charged.

How do you conduct your lessons?

Lessons will first start in a designated car park. Once the instructor is satisfied with your handling of the bike, you will start training on the road.

When on the road, the instructor will give you directions via a Bluetooth system provided by the school. The instructor will be driving behind you. This is for your own safety but also to assess your abilities and address your weak points.
