After being able to drive an automatic scooter, you can continue to take driving classes for manual bikes with us.
If you already know how to drive an automatic scooter, we also offer manual bike class. During these lessons, you’ll be learning to shift gears first on a Honda MSX 125 to gain confidence.

For the first lessons on an automatic scooter, you’ll be on the scooter with Ben so that he can help you appreciate the amount of acceleration needed. Then once you’ll know how to handle the acceleration, Ben will still be there to let you do it by yourself while still be there to manage the handlebar.
