MCIA is asking members to help spread the word about upcoming fixtures for the Get On Experience, which is going on the road.
Get On has several dates and venues fixed across the UK between now and the end of the year, to give non-riders their first taste of riding a motorcycle or scooter for free.
For the first time, Get On will be utilising Test Centre spaces, which are ideal for running these events.
Sessions are taken by qualified instructors and last 30 minutes. Full safety equipment is provided, although riders are asked to wear sturdy shoes and full length jeans.
Bookings can be made beforehand via the Get On website, or on the day, subject to availability. Get On is the motorcycle industry’s free ‘try out’ programme and is open to anyone aged 15 or over, who wants to try a motorcycle or scooter for the first time in a safe and structured environment. Instructors can also give advice about where to find high quality trainers should riders want to take a CBT (Compulsory Basic Training). This allows a rider to use a 125cc motorcycle or scooter on the road and usually takes around a day to complete. Get On road-shows are also planned for the following venues:
Wolverhampton Practical Test Centre (Spring Lane) - Saturday 15 August Uxbridge Motorcycle Practical Test Centre (near Brunel University) – Saturday 5 September Farnborough Motorcycle Practical Test Centre (near Farnborough Airport) - 13 September Silverstone British Touring Cars Championships – 26 & 27 September Motorcycle Live, NEC 28 Nov to 6 December (booking goes live for this event three months before the start of the show)
