Motorcycle Rider Training
Become one with your bike
DVR safety training courses in your own car as well as motorbike riding courses are now also possible again. For safety reasons, accompanied tours on our off-road course as well as e-test drives in the ServiceHaus car park are unfortunately currently not possible.
Alternatively, though, you could come to our grand unaccompanied test drive event with more than 80 VW Group vehicles which we will be hosting in our advanced driving area within the scope of our Family Weeks from 4 June to 11 July.
However, please note that you must present proof of a negative rapid antigen test (valid for a maximum of 24 hours) or a PCR test (valid for a maximum of 48 hours), proof of recent recovery from Covid-19 or official proof of vaccination in order to be able to take part.
Riding a motorcycle is fun – but emergency braking and extreme cornering require skills that need to be learned. The Autostadt offers you a chance to improve your motorcycle riding and safety skills on the SafetyTrack. You can sign up for rider training sessions. Choose from different all-day training courses where you ride your own motorcycle. Trainings include a theoretical module dealing with the fundamentals of motorcycle technology followed by practical exercises.
Basic Training – discover and experience your personal and physical limits
Basic Training is aimed at beginners and those returning to the bike world. Participants are first briefed on the basics of motorcycle technology. A professional instructor then works with riders to help them refine their techniques for cornering, braking, avoiding obstacles and balance. These and many more practical skills are taught in the Basic Training course. All participants who complete the training will receive a certificate from the German Road Safety Council (DVR).
Lean Angle Training – optimize your cornering technique and experience a completely new feeling
Lean Angle Training teaches riders how to really get low into the turns. This course is ideal for those who want to try out the limits of their machine and test their personal driving skills. The training starts with a review of basic motorcycle technology. Afterwards, the practical session focuses on avoiding obstacles, optimal braking in wet conditions, and perfecting the rider's lean angle. For these exercises, a special device (outrigger) is attached to the motorcycle enabling the rider to manoeuvre safely without losing control of the bike.
So apart from basic training and lean angle training, there are even more types of training on offer such as 'After Work' on selected days from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., DVR motorbike safety training exclusively for women and the 'Ride again' training at which Ducati bikes will be available.
