Free motorcycle trial session for beginners

I've done a search and couldn't find it - hope it hasn't already been posted!

Daily commute getting you down? Fed up with tube strikes, delays in public transport, rising ticket prices, lack of seats or the daily grind into work generally? Then a motorbike or scooter may be just the solution you’ve been waiting for. Bikes and scooters are cheap, quick and fun.


What’s even better is that now you can try it for FREE!

Here’s how it works.

We’ll help you find your local Get On training centre and they’ll contact you to book a free 1 hour trial session at a time that suits you. With over 160 training centres around the UK there’s bound to be one close by.

On the day, a qualified instructor will brief you about the session and kit you out with a helmet and safety gear. Then you get to ride a 125cc motorbike or scooter away from the road on a secure training area with help from your instructor. They’ll get you used to the gears and throttle and soon you’ll soon be grinning like you did when you learnt to ride a push bike.

After your hour’s session, you can find out more about doing your CBT or going for a full motorcycle license, how to buy a motorcycle or scooter and what kind might suit you, or anything else you want to know about life on two wheels.

Then you’re well on the way to the enjoying the freedom, fun and flexibility that life on two wheels brings.

If by any chance you don’t like it, you can just walk away – you’ve had the experience, and it’s cost you nothing.

Why do people vote cold, just because they won't be taking advantage of the offer? It is completely free, so why would it be cold? I've been watching this go down and up, and down and up since I posted it, I just hope it will regain a decent temperature, because it really is an excellent offer! I've done the free ride, and it was really good, it's an excellent way to find out if you like it or not, without actually booking your CBT, which you probably wouldn't do if you're not quite sure...

Cracking deal!!! Super hot from me.

There is not a single person that wouldnt enjoy this experience (well maybe a few). Swallow your fear and pretense and go for it!

I did this last Christmas - then my DAS course in January.
Warning....this 'free' session cost me £5k X)

Great offer, thank you

Great offer, I've been riding over 20 years so no use to me, but

My other half is having their first go on a bike at the NEC show this year with GetOn, it's a brilliant offer, can't go wrong.

I've just received an email from Get On, who say you can just turn up at their stand at Hall 4 at the NEC, or book in advance :http://www.geton.co.uk/user/register/247623
(I hope this link works, I've not posted here before !)

For anyone else who's interested, my husband and I booked a Free Ride with Get On for a bit of a laugh, to just try something different in April this year. We absolutely loved it and got severely addicted to biking - yes, it's cost us a fair bit since to buy the right protective gear, and even have a bike each now, but nothing can beat the thrill of it, especially when you can filter through traffic jams/queues lol.

If anyone reading this wants to try something different, with no strings attached, then give it a go - it's great fun and you've nothing to lose !

i think its a bril deal will mention it to my son who is fed up with walking to work

Worth pointing out when I did it, the only protective equipment provided was a lid.
Whilst I only went round a carpark - and therefore max 10-15mph - it was a little daunting to not have pads on every corner ;)

Might just have been my local crowd though.

Voted hot from me.
#11
Signed up for it. There's a centre about 5 minute drive away from me. 21 in January so this will go towards experience for my first bike!
#12
do they try to hard sell after the session?
#13
Hot from me, though there probably aren't many takers this time of year!

They will obviously try and sell you some lessons!

Don't think riding a motorcycle is a 'cure' to road congestion unless you're prepared to drive dangerously (filtering traffic), aggressively and rely on the 'kindness' of car drivers when you cut them up!...many car virgins think so.

You can sometimes safely filter traffic in certain city/town/traffic light situations and parking is a doddle :)

I also have been a motorcyclist for 20 years on a variety of 50-800cc bikes.

Driving a motorcycle is certainly something that must be experienced though!

do they try to hard sell after the session?

For me they didn't. They simply supplied the sales bumf and let you on your way. Thing is, once you've been on it, you know (and they know too) if you want to learn properly...its almost like they don't have to sell it to you.

I took my full DAS course in late January last year and the prices were very competitive (something to do with ice and snow I reckon)....all in cost me £710 - for a 5 day course including all test fee's (plus a resit of the MOD1 test damn it) , bike hire, lid etc.

Then once you pass, all you need is the bike, lid, jacket, trousers, gloves, boots, insurance and tax lol.

Got a bike beginning of Feb (the day I passed) and have commuted on it everyday since...until this Monday when it started getting a bit too slippery out there for my liking.

My advice is take the freebie and see what you think - just be aware of the costs of getting a bike, not just the license.

When I did it they provided everything, but I brought my own gear, preferred to wear something that fitted!

Not exactly hard sell, but they did try to get me to book my CBT, but I didn't because they were much more expensive than another company I knew of, which I've since realised are aslo part of the get on initiative.

Bikes are the most dangerous form of travel on the road. Just Google the statistics for deaths of bike drivers compared to cars. Why would you book something dangerous for your loved ones or yourself?....its like saying theres a free taster session for heroin or cocaine. If you hate yourself or a loved one and want to increase your chances of death than go for it...not for me ....cold.

You've obviously had a bad experience somewhere along the line, sorry to hear it.
Personally I definitely think that if any of my loved ones were into bikes (as most of them are) I would much rather they took to the road after having some decent training, and if they can get the start of it for free, and with other perks that they provide (like 2 free tickets to Motorcycle live in Birmingham, which I got after booking my CBT) then that's just an added bonus. Voting it cold because you're scared of bikes does seem a little odd to me though...

My folks never wanted me to get a bike...so I didn't. My wife didn't want me to get a bike at first...but now she's ok-ish about it. Its fair to be concerned - I mean, of the slight "uh oh"'s I've had on mine since I got it, all of them were my fault and not caused by car drivers (which are usually to blame (_;) )

With everything in the world, we make your own choices - fags, booze, crack, Kwak z1000's in t-shirts and flip flops (seen that more than I wanted to) - its all available to you and right that you have a go....maybe not crack oO

i have been on this free ride and it is very good!! after 30 years off a bike it encouraged me to go back on two wheels and i found there was no hard sell afterwards. this is hot.
