Here at AIM, we offer a very high standard of training and believe that this should be conducted at a pace to suit the individual.
With this in mind, we can offer a varied selection of courses adapted to the trainees' skill levels and tailored to suit their own commitments.
Whether you are a complete novice, a qualified rider coming back to motorcycling or any level in between, we have a course to suit you!
CBT (Compulsory Basic Training)
Attending compulsory basic training is required by law before taking to the road and is also a fantastic introduction to the world of motorcycling.
• Legal requirements
• Protective Clothing
INTRODUCTION TO MACHINE CONTROLS

• Motorcycle Controls
• Basic maintenance
ON SITE TRAINING
• Practising manoeuvres
• Building skills and confidence
• Road conditions
• Road Hazards

ON ROAD TRAINING
• Out on the road under instruction
• Experience of varying road & traffic conditions
• Providing you have reached a satisfactory level of competence, a Certificate of Approved Training will be issued and you may ride on the road displaying L-Plates
• If you do not, you will be invited to return for extra tuition.
A1 & A2 & DIRECT ACCESS COURSES
If you have completed your CBT course and with to acquire your Motorcycle Licence, you will be required to pass a Motorcycle Theory Test, which you are able to book through the DSA on 0300 200 1122 or online at by clicking here.
Once you have passed your theory test, your are ready to go and can opt to go for either A1, A2 or Direct Access licence, depending upon your age.
We offer a basic course for all of these licences, which comprises of 4 x 3 hour training sessions and a practical test made up of 2 modules. This course can have training sessions added or deducted, depending upon your skill levels.
Module 1 is a series of manoeuvres conducted on a specially designed site located at the local MPTC (Multi-Purpose Test Centre). We have the space and facilities, including a speed-measuring device, to do the training for this module on site.
When you have passed your Module 1, you will be issued with a certificate and this will enable you to go ahead and book your Module 2 test. This certificate is only valid for the remaining life of your theory test, so it is advisable to complete Module 2 as soon as you possibly can.
Module 2 of the motorcycle test consists of a road ride of approximately 45 minutes in duration, in which you will be in radio contact with an examiner as he follows you along various routes.
Training can be done either throughout the week, over weekends or a mixture of both; whichever suits you. Evening training is available for a limited period during the summer months. We can usually tailor a course to fit around your home or work commitments.
For all of the courses available, you will be required to have a Full/Provisional licence with Category A as a provisional entitlement.
Throughout these intensive courses, you will be trained to the highest standard, by our friendly and helpful team of professional instructors.
PLEASE CONTACT US WITH ANY ENQUIRIES AND WE WILL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

“Hi Bob / Pearl
Hope your both well.
I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for all your help with my motorcycle training. I am the third member of my family to pass my test with Aim and you made it a pleasurable and comfortable experience. At first I was a little scared about progressing to a bigger bike but you made it very easy and comfortable for me to get past the nerves and get on the 500cc bike and ride. Your professionalism, experience and friendly approach is beyond brilliant and I would certainly 100% advise/recommend anyone thinking of going for their full license or any other kind of training to do so with Aim motorcycle training.
Once again it has been a pleasure.
Massive thank you take care.
