Peter Cairns Motorcycle Training & Car Tuition Carlisle

Welcome to Peter Cairns

My name is Peter Cairns (Wee Peter To those who know me) and I am the owner, with the help of Scott Cairns, we are qualified Instructors.

Myself with 20 years experience and Scott with 10 years experience, therefore between us we have a vast amount of experience and knowledge to pass on. I am also on the register of post motorcycle trainers which is DSA approved and is related to the Enhanced Rider Scheme which helps improve your skills and reduces your insurance.

I was also a member of IAM and may be able to give advice and possible training geared towards your advanced test, contact me for further information.

We offer a wide range of courses from the complete novice to the experienced rider. You will find a list of these courses on the site and the costs depending on your requirements. If you are unsure what the course or licence requirements there is a information from the DSA web site explaining the law and your licence.

We strongly support Bike Safe which is a course you should consider after passing your test that is when the real learning curve begins, click the logo to give you more information.

BikeSafe is an initiative run by Police Forces around the United Kingdom who work with the whole of the biking world to help to lower the number of motorcycle rider casualties.

Size issues?

If you're thinking it's going to be a problem learning to ride a bike if you're small (like Pete!) or worried about the weight of the bike, we have now lowered our 2017 Kawasaki Z650 and it is also one of the lightest bikes on the market.
We are now Honda Approved in line with Honda's advertisement (on CFM), and have 2 brand new Honda bikes. This means until the end of September you may possibly get your licence paid for you (terms and conditions apply) - please contact us or Lloyd Honda 01228 516216 for further details.

We have heated grips on all our large bikes.
