It’s not actually all that complicated but the government do a good job of making it sound more complex than it is.

How much are motorcycle lessons?
The costs vary and mainly depending on where you’re located. A typical package costs around £30-40 per hour and can be booked in blocks, usually from 8 hours to 16 hours.
How many lessons before the motorcycle test?
This is entirely dependent on the rider’s ability and the instructor’s confidence that you’re ready to take your motorcycle test. For most new riders, you’ll need 12 hours training in preparation to take your motorcycle test.
Where can I get motorcycle lessons?
There will be a motorcycle training school local to you. A good place to start is to search for motorcycle training and your local town’s name. You can also use this government website to find a school that offers CBT training as they will also run courses to help you get your full motorcycle licence.
