Honda’s revealed a new complete rider training package which makes it even easier to get into riding in 2024
Honda’s been getting people on bikes for a few years now; with training schools up and down the country offering top-quality training to fledgling riders who are starting out on their two-wheeled journey. They’re well regarded, well reviewed and well appointed – but that doesn’t make them any easier on the pocket. And that’s why the UK arm of the Japanese firm has chosen to revamp its ‘Honda School of Motoring – New Rider Programme’.
Honda will now provide everything you need to get on two wheels for a monthly fee. It’s essentially a PCP deal, but instead of just getting a bike, you’ll get the training, your test, some kit and servicing, too. Nice idea, we reckon.

There are deals to be had no matter whether you’re just after your CBT and a 125cc, or you want a full licence and a big bike. There are refresher courses, too, for those of you getting back into bikes after a bit of a hiatus. And you can snag yourself pretty much anything from Honda’s whopping range, aside from the new Fireblade and Gold Wing. For reference, Honda’s broken down the cost of getting your hands on its new CB750 Hornet (plus your training, test, kit and servicing). It works out at close to £134 a month.
Breaking it down, you’ll have to lay out a £1643.55 deposit for the bike, after which you’ll be paying £89 a month for the duration of the three-year PCP deal. And on top of that you’ll get your training, test and kit for an additional £44.83 extra (which Honda’s pricing at £1400). Not bad at all – and it’s certainly easier than finding the cash to do it all outright. If you want to keep the bike, you will have to stomach the final £3837.86 at the end of the deal, though we suspect many would be ready to roll over to something newer at that point.
