Dirt Bike Lessons

Always wanted to learn to ride a dirt bike but never knew where to start?

Want your teenager to learn how to handle a motorbike without the added distractions of road signs, road code and heavy traffic?

Whether you're a novice, intermediate or have never sat on a dirt bike before, James, an experienced coach and champion rider, is available for group or individual dirt bike lessons. This is a great option for Corporate Events, Team Building, Christmas Functions, Family Fun, Hens Parties and Stag Dos, as well as simply ticking it off the bucket list. His son Nik can also be available, by prior arrangement, for specialised tuition.  

No motorcycle licence or experience necessary

James and his family have competed for many years across a range of classes including Veterans' Motocross, National Cross Country Series, Over 45 Cross Country, National Enduro Series, Tarawera 100 and Junior Nationals. They have an extensive collection of medals and trophies between them. You know you'll be in safe and competent hands.

All tuition is taken at your own pace, without pressure. 

For total novices, in the interests of (a) safety (b) technique and (c) personal enjoyment and comfort, we do recommend two hours of coaching:

  • 1st hour:  This will cover basic bike handling including starting, stopping, braking and changing gear.  You will have plenty of time to practice on the Learners’ Track afterwards.
  • 2nd hour:  After lunch we will progress to cornering and standing up.   Following this lesson, the remainder of the day is yours to practice your new skills and enjoy the tracks. 

Advanced Lessons: can be stylised to suit your needs.  Just let us know what you have in mind.  Bring your own bike or hire one of ours.  

We also hire dirt bikes with all the protective gear  so you have everything you need to learn safely & have a ton of fun.
