Newcastle Motorcycles is to offer free riding lessons up to test standard for anyone who works for the emergency services. The offer starts next month.
It is not necessary to purchase a bike to qualify, but the dealer obviously hopes that, after passing, the members of the NHS, fire or police service will go on to buy a bike locally. “Of course, it would be great if they did buy from us but that’s not the deal,” said the dealership.
“Why are we doing this? We’re a family-owned, managed and staffed business of 25 or so bikers. It’s our little way of saying thanks for the work the emergency services do, and giving a bit back locally.
“We’ll allocate plenty of spaces each month and provide up to 14 hours of tuition for free, as well as a CBT.”
The learners will be expected to cover the cost of their fees to the DVSA for the theory, mod1 and mod2 test – currently £23, £15.50 and £75 respectively.
Anyone interested should call 07810 102 673 or the landline 0191 282 2869 and speak with Peter or Lisa to get booked in.
