Motorcycle Training on The Docklands, Preston.

Ridecraft Motorcycle Academy is an organisation of highly experienced and qualified Instructors with a vast experience in all areas of motorcycling, from a CBT Course through to ‘True Advanced’ Training.

As a ‘Centre of Motorcycling Excellence’, the Instructors at RIDEcraft Academy have been carefully chosen due to their established professional and long-term abilities, well-known and respected by the owner of the Academy – Mike. Because of the ‘Intention’ of the Training School, they are especially capable of delivering a standard of instruction which is ‘better than the rest’.

We deliver motorcycle training in Preston from CBT to Advanced and promote the highest standards. This is by providing knowledge and support in every area of riding, whether it’s conducting your CBT, preparing for the DVSA L-Test, or furthering your rider training from ‘Rusty Biker’, ‘Return to Biking’, the Enhanced Rider Scheme to Advanced or ultimately ‘True Advanced’.

You should know that other training bodies claim to cover Preston. The only way they can do that is by you travelling sometimes long distances to their premises well outside the City areas. Only Ridecraft Academy operates in Preston.

We also provide training for those who’d like to become a professional Motorcycle Instructor. If readers of our site are interested – you must first be ‘over 21’ and have held a clean motorcycle licence for more-than 3 years.

Based on The Docks in Preston, our motorcycle packages are aimed at nurturing the highest levels of awareness, skills, and capabilities in riders by working with our Trainees – as there is no ‘one size fits all’. Our services are ‘Client Centred’, to meet and support your requirements, whatever your needs. The bottom-line with this is ‘you cannot be disadvantaged’, as an official and professional statement.

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT), Direct Access Scheme (DAS), Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS) and Advanced Training 7 days a week. Bikes and clothing supplied free of charge if required.

We hope to create a warm and welcoming community that our trainees / riders can feel part of. This includes getting advice, chatting through plans and ideas, or merely calling-in for a chat at RIDEcraft.

We maintain an active Facebook site with many of our past Trainees taking the time to leave their comments about their experience at this ‘Centre of Motorcycling Excellence’. Feel free to visit, having a look at the independent reviews to help you.

Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss any questions,  concerns or even worries you may have.
