A Monster 797 is the perfect bike to learn and pass your test on.
Passing your motorcycle test is one of life’s great landmarks and doing it on a Ducati will be a day you’ll remember. The Monster 797 and our Scrambler models are ideally suited to learning, and to enjoy well beyond passing your test.
These models are:
- Small, lightweight and manoeuvrable – just 170 kg for a Scrambler Icon and 175kg for a Monster 797.
- Anti-lock braking system (ABS) encourages rider confidence.
- Low seat height on both models, with lower and higher seats available as an accessory.
Your training will start on a 125cc machine at one of our training locations across the UK. The first element of the course will be the CBT (Compulsory Basic Training), this course is an ideal introduction to motorcycling and is also classed as the first part of your route to a full licence. The course will introduce you to the basics of machine control and will progress to a minimum 2 hour road ride where you can show off your new found skills.
Following on from this you will have some additional training on the 125cc bike to build those all-important skills before progressing onto a larger capacity bike (usually a 500-650cc). Your instructor will ensure you are up to a suitable standard on the larger machine before introducing you to your Ducati, from this point onwards all of your training will be conducted on a Ducati.
Your training will be determined by any previous experience you may have and your training provider will be able to advise you of how long it will take you to get your full licence. Typically if you are previously experienced, this will take 3-4 days of tuition and if this is your first time on a bike it can take 6-7 days. The important thing is to know that each Ducati training package is custom designed for you as an individual.
The full licence test itself is broken down into 2 separate elements, the first part (known as Mod 1) is designed to test your machine control and is conducted off road, and the second part (Mod 2) will test your on-road skills and, if successful, will legally entitle you to ride a suitable Ducati on an A or A2 licence.
Prior to taking the full licence test you will need to have passed your motorcycle theory test, your training provider will be able to advise and help you with this at the time of booking.
