Never ridden before? Don’t know a throttle from a piston?

Or perhaps you’ve ridden dirt bikes on the farm and want to go ‘on-road’?

Great! Either way, we’re here to train you to become a competent, safe rider and help you through the Licence process from Learner to Full—and beyond! Yip—we know your mate Stu could show you a few tricks… but learning to ride through Ornsby Motorcycle Training means tuition from fully qualified professional instructors who have a wealth of knowledge.

No ‘she’ll be rights’.

Just the ‘right’ way to ride. Trust us—there’s a big difference.

At Ornsby Motorcycle Training we offer a simple Learn To Ride one-on-one, two hour sessions—designed to build your confidence so you can pass your Basic Handling Skills Test (BHST) and move onto your Learner Licence Theory Test.

Or—for competent riders, we can simply take you through the BHST.
