Donnington Park. Under the flight path of the airport.

Not much in October though. Out of season.

Try April for the MotoGP.

Question by Koschei: How do I go about learning how to ride a motorbike?
I’m a complete newbie here, I don’t even know where to start!
I’m interested in learning how to ride a motorbike. I’ve always fancied it, even as a kid, and it would be a pretty useful way of getting around too.
Anyhow, I’m 18 years old, and I live in the UK, so if anyone has any useful links or information I would really appreciate it. Thanks =)

It’s all on the DSA website. First you need to do a CBT, this normally takes one day although you need to reach the required standard in that time (about 90% of people reach the standard in one day).

Once you have your CBT you can ride for up to 2 years on L plates on a 125cc bike up to 11kW.

When you want to take your test you need to first take your theory test then module 1 and module 2 of the practical test.
