Motorbike lessons in English
You need to pass three exams:
Theory: Specific motorbike theory. This is an individual exam in Dutch. If your Dutch is not up to scratch, an interpreter can be arranged. The theory books are in Dutch only – don’t worry, I can help you with this.
Vehicle control exam: A practical exam to show proficiency in 12 specific exercises. At the exam, you are asked to perform 7 of which 5 must be successful.
Traffic participation exam: A practical exam showing your ability to control and drive your motorbike in traffic. A motorbike is a relatively dangerous vehicle, you will need to display a great sense of self safety.
Please check your (car) driving licence. If you do not have a European Union driving licence, you will need to get one. Or pass your theory motor bike exam first.
Age: In the Netherlands, your age determines your licence category. If you are over 24, there are no limitations. Please let me know if you are under 24.
Bikes: You will have your lessons on a Suzuki Sv650. This bike is suitable for various lenghts. I will follow on a Triumph Tiger – I never follow in a car.
