Honda School of Motorcycling

As one of the world's leading motorcycle brands, Honda wants everyone to enjoy the freedom of the road safely and confidently. So we founded a school where you can learn to do just that.

There are schools all around England, Scotland and Wales, who will teach you how to ride, help you gain your CBT certificate, and progress to your full licence.

If you pass one of our Honda School of Motorcycling step up courses we'll also give you £500 towards a new bike.

Fixed Price Service Plans

We know how hard it is to plan for the unknown. That’s why our Honda Service Plans have been designed for new Honda motorcycles and scooters, to maintain them in line with the Honda manufacturer’s service guidelines.

Depending on which model you choose, and how many miles you do each year, we have a plan that’s right for you, giving you peace of mind that your bike will remain in tip top condition.

All the safety equipment and clothing you need

As a new rider, there are a number of essential items you will need to make sure you are safe and comfortable on your bike. Such as an approved helmet, protective trousers, boots, gloves and jacket, all of which can add up significantly in costs. Which is why our NEW RIDER PROGRAMME helps you spread the costs, along with your training, tests, motorcycle, and servicing, over easy monthly payments to suit your budget.

Thunder Road Motorcycles Ltd (FCA Number 584111), is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Thunder Road Motorcycles Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

Part of Completely Motoring Ltd (FCA Number 676043),

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
