BMW Motorrad Rookie to Rider

BMW Motorrad Rookie to Rider
See the full details for the scheme, including how to sign up, at the BMW Motorrad UK website here.

I've signed up with my local BMW Motorrad retailer, what happens next?

  • • Prior to booking your course, you will need to pass your Motorcycle theory test. This is an independent DVSA test, taken in a local Theory Test Centre, consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions and 15 'Hazard perception' video clips, testing your road knowledge. This can be booked here.

  • • Once you have passed your Motorcycle Theory test, we can book your practical Direct Access Training course. You can call our team on 08000 131282 to discuss dates, or send us a message here. Please note, course bookings will not be accepted without a valid Theory test, so please ensure this is completed first!

  • • After completing your training and tests, your new motorcycle will be ready for collection at your BMW Motorrad retailer.

What is included in the Rookie to Rider Training course?

The course included is our 7 day intensive Direct Access course, which is inclusive of all protective clothing during the training, bike hire, insurance, fuel, dedicated 2:1 tuition, CBT certificate, Module 1 & Module 2 test fees. You can see the full breakdown of this course, including start times and example course dates here

The Rookie to Rider training course also has some special options that can be added by request:
  • • Pass Guarantee
  • • A2 – A licence upgrade course

I already have a CBT, will I take a different course?

There is no change to the duration of the course, even if you already have some previous riding experience. Rest assured, we won't focus on elements you're already confident with - instead we'll use the extra practice time to prepare you for your tests, and refine your skills to ensure you have the best opportunity to gain your full licence.

Should you have questions or queries regarding your course please contact us on 08000 131282 or by email at
