About Camrider Peterborough

Our Peterborough motorcycle training site has a large off-road training area, located in a quiet industrial area to make the first on-road manoeuvres safe and easy to master. We were the first training company to introduce seven days a week training, to ensure small class sizes and to only use fully qualified instructors at all levels. We have been the leaders in pupil and instructor training since 1977.

We try to make the CBT a really enjoyable experience and you will find we have a large range of bikes for you to learn on. Additionally, we provide loan helmets, gloves, jackets and waterproofs. Our office staff will book you to tests we have reserved in advance and make sure you have details of exactly what’s needed. If you need any information or have any questions we are just a phone call away.
