About 3D Motorcycle Training

During the current situation you must have all your own Safety equipment for Hygine reasons. We will still supply the bike if required.
Renewals must bring their old CBT certificate and not be expired by more than a month.

3D Motorcycle Training is based in Harrogate and has been in operation since 2000. We have a number of well qualified full and part time instructors.

Our aim is to teach you how to ride your bike to the best of your ability not just to pass your test.

We at 3D want you to ride away knowing that you can come back and call us at anytime to assist and guide you on your Motorcycling journey through life.

We provide a full range of courses, suited to people of all skill levels. We will asses your skill level and put you on the course that is right for you, whether you are a complete novice or returning to bikes after a number of years away from riding.

We are here to support and guide you as you progress on from your CBT or DVSA tests.

Make sure to bring your glasses or contact lenses if you wear them as you will need to read a registration plate at a distance of 20 metres. You will also learn:

  • Understanding the legal requirement to riding

  • The use of speed, road positioning, safe driving distances
  • The importance of the Highway Code
  • Your visibility on the road
  • Using rear observation
  • Riding at the correct speeds, road positioning and distance between other vehicles according to traffic and road conditions.
  • Learning to anticipate danger and riding defensively
  • Care will also be given in explaining about the radios and how not to get lost on the road

Element E is where you put all the above into practise by riding on the road. You will go out on the road with an instructor two at a time with a radio link. You must do at least two hours of road tuition, which must include doing a U-turn and emergency stop. At the outset the instructor will give plenty of guidance and help, but towards the end of the time on the road the instructor will be looking to see if you can get safely from one place to another without hurting yourself or anybody else.
