At Mantis Motorcycle Training we are proud to be announcing some changes that have occurred in the last 18 months. We have moved premises and renewed our training equipment with a whole new class room and new facilities. We have also invested in new bikes including the fantastic Yamaha MT07s and Honda CB600F as our DAS bikes.
Our ever faithful onsite workshop looks after the schools bikes exclusively ensuring that every student that trains with Mantis Motorcycles can ride in confidence, knowing that they will be using a modern and well maintained machine. We also work closely with Austin Holmes at Inta bikes for our MOTs and routine maintenance parts. Mantis Motorcycling recommends Intas for all your biking needs.
We have also renewed our logo and mascot thanks to www.thesovi.art
We are also looking at a modest change to our prices, due to COVID and social distancing our CBT course is currently running at £150, due to the requirements for 1-2-1 tuition. Once COVID and restrictions pass we will revert to our new group rate of £120, students can still book 1-2-1 for the cost of £150 our bolt on course CBT plus is available for an additional £65. The CBT Plus features an additional 3 hours of rider development to make you a more safer and confident rider. We can also use these 3 hours to transition from an Automatic to a geared motorcycle.
We cannot offer safety equipment to students due to COVID we do however have safety gear that can be bought and kept by the student including a limited selection of new helmets for £35 . Motorcycle boots for £35 and motorcycle trainers for £65. We have a selection of pre-loved jackets too. Gloves will need to be supplied by the student.
A1 (125cc Full Licence), A2(restricted Licence) and DAS courses now cost the following: 3 days @ £600 3 days @ £600 4 days @ £700 5 days @ £800 this includes a Mod 1 & 2 but excludes a CBT. To include a CBT into one of our packages please call to discuss, students must also pay for, sit and pass a theory test.
Please note if students fail Mod 1 they forfeit the Mod 2 to the DVSA. Mod 1 retake prices are set at £100 including test fee MOD2 retake £180 including test fee. Back to biking and advance training such as cornering and simple courses like carrying of pillion and how to tie on to a trailer start from £140 for 3 hours
We also offer big bike intros which is a day to ride a bigger bike without the pressure of a full course and tests. This is a really positive and gentle way to get to grips with the weight and size of a 500cc bike this is £120 for 4 hours.
This is our first price change in 8 years we strive to look after your pockets as much as we can, but increased insurance costs and the ever rising cost of petrol has led to this. We are confident that you will still enjoy our great service and continue to support us as a training school as of 13th May 2020 we are able to offer some limited services with the careful easing of the lockdown whilst still observing social distancing. Currently on the limited menu is CBTs, CBT Plus, back to biking, refresher training, and Advance rider training assessments to work out correct length of course to purchase (and still FREE). We can also offer bespoke courses on the correct way to carry a pillion, advanced cornering as well as bike maintenance and safe trailer attachments.
We will also be Trialling a new service Highway code reader service and theory training this is offered at £10ph and can be done via messenger or in person please remember we also have limiter PPE in stock budget items at budget prices as we still cannot loan out school equipment to ensure that the spread of Corvid 19 is still being halted in its tracks.
Thank you to past and present patrons let’s all keep moving in 2020 while we all work together to beat this virus and look forward to the open road.
