WELCOME TO BIKETRAIN WALES
Due to the very high demand for our Direct access and A2 courses combined with the reduced availability of bike tests at the test center, we unfortunately can not offer any more courses until further notice. We will update our web page when these restrictions are eased. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
We are now taking CBT bookings for late September. We will be prioritising CBT renewals and customers wishing to progress onto Direct Access and A2. All new Direct Access and A2 bookings when available MUST hold a current CBT certificate together with a valid motorcycle theory certificate.
Biketrain Wales specialise in motorcycle training in South East Wales and Monmouthshire. We are here to help you ride a moped, a scooter or a motorbike on the road. We can offer a comprehensive service that is competitively priced and conveniently situated off Edlogan Way in Cwmbran, Torfaen and in Gilwern Abergavenny.
As a growing business we’ve continued to develop and expand with never losing sight that our first priority is to provide safe and effective training to meet individual customer requirements.
You will be trained by experienced and qualified motorcycle instructors who are enthusiastic about bikes all shapes and sizes.
