Honda launches training centres

First four riding schools opening soon

HONDA UK has announced the launch of its first licensed motorcycle training centres.

Four Honda motorcycle dealers in the South of England are to become the first to offer training on-premises, under license from Honda UK and authorised by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Authority (DVSA).

The schools will provide courses for all levels - offering CBT, conversion courses, refresher training and full licence qualification.

Dedicated Honda-trained instructors will deliver unique programs to suit each customer with training carried out in dedicated areas close to the dealership, using bikes no more than 12 months old with equipment and clothing provided by the centre.

Simon Herbert, Business Planning of Honda UK, said:?"Our dealerships are the face of Honda to our customers, so what better place to offer the highest standards of training in a professional and reassuring environment? Whether a new, returning, or current rider, we want to make training an easy and enjoyable experience and part of the journey towards getting on, getting back on or stepping up."

The school is part of Honda’s new initiative to make it easier for new riders to get into motorcycling, and for inactive riders to return.

Honda plans to launch a total of 40 licensed centres within the next two years with current centres 21st Moto, Belle Vue Motorcycles, P&H Motorcycles, and Doble Motorcycles opening doors to business in the coming months.
