Rider Training

So you want to be a biker?

Come and join us at Saltire Motorcycles in Edinburgh, where we can help you in every step of the way.

Our Rider Training department can offer you the training you need, whether you are starting at the very beginning with a taster session, or coming back to biking after a wee break and need some guidance.

We tailor motorcycle training to suit individual needs, and look to develop and expand each student’s skills, to make them safer and more confident riders. Our instructors are very friendly and approachable & will help you with anything you may require.

What you need

To start the process, all you need is your UK car or provisional photo-card licence; plus the enthusiasm to learn a fun new skill!

Along with your photocard licence, you will need to provide a valid licence check code or provide us with your National Insurance number, so that we can check your licence details online.

If you have an old paper style licence, then you will also require to bring along a photographic ID, such as a passport.

Rider Training Student Discounts

All of our new Saltire Rider Training students will get:

  • 15% off in the Clothing department (in store)
  • Exclusive head-to-toe riderwear package deals (in store)

our Training MOTORCYCLES

We are delighted to be the UK’s first KTM-partnered motorcycle training school, offering a full fleet of KTM 890 Dukes for our Category A (unrestricted) licence trainees! The 890 Duke has an approachable seat height, and offers easy slow speed handling and control, while providing plenty of acceleration and braking.

Our instructors use KTM 890 Adventures, providing them with all-day comfort, visibility and maximum situational awareness.

For those who want to complete their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course on a manual motorcycle, we have a range of geared 125 motorbikes, including a lowered option. If you’d rather complete your CBT course on a twist-and-go automatic scooter, we have a Sunra Robo-S and a Sunra Miku Super available, both fully electric, alongside a 125cc and 50cc petrol automatic scooters.
