Here at Daytona Motorcycles, we want to everyone to hop onto two wheels and start riding and with the help of Passmasters, getting on couldn't be easier. We can guide you through the easiest route to the engine that you need, whether it's a scooter for beating the traffic, or a big bad bike to defeat those twisting roads and get the most out of your ride.
First of all, to ride any form of motorcycle, you must be at least 16 years old and have passed a CBT (Compulsary Basic Training). After completing a CBT, you'll be able to ride a 50cc Scooter at the age of 16, which will be restricted to 30mph. If you're 17 or older and have passed a CBT, you can ride a 125cc motorcycle with Learner plates on. But, along with the learner plates you'll be unable to carry a Pillion (passenger).
A CBT consists of one day of training (could be longer at the training companies discretion) where the rider will learn about safety, using the correct gear, road use and correct riding, and then receive some physical training along with a road ride.
As well known, motorcycle riders can be at a larger risk than any other user of the road, so it is of vital importance that you wear all of the correct gear and ride safely. Legally, you must only wear a helmet, but we recommend wearing a full set of protective gear, including a jacket, gloves and boots. For any gear recommendations, do not hesitate to ask our friendly team.
If you're 19 years of age, you'll be able to complete an A2 Motorcycle License, which allows you to ride up to 35kW (and a power-to-weight ratio not more than 0.2kW per kg). This means, legally you can ride any CC of motorcycle, as long as the power is restricted. Although for A2 users, we recommend 300-500cc, as this is a lightweight, still quick bike allowing you to get comfortable and used to higher weights/speeds without going overboard and being unsafe. Many motorcycle brands offer perfect motorcycles for this category, many that we sell ourselves, such as the Kawasaki Ninja 300, and the Suzuki Inazuma 250.
When riding, always ensure that you ride to your ability, in speed and weight of motorcycle.
