The Scooter Centre at Colin Appleyard

Whether it's for negotiating the city or getting on two wheels for the first time

If you're 16 or older, you're going to enjoy and remember your first motorcycle/scooter - we've all been there. We are here to help with advice, training and support to ensure that you make the right choices to suit your needs. Getting on to a scooter or motorcycle makes a great deal of sense, whether it's to get you to your job, college, or you just want to reduce the cost of your commuting and we have a great choice of models from Yamaha and Suzuki.

Whatever the reason, it will give you the freedom of choice to get about at a time of day which suits you.No more waiting for that bus or train that never comes. Or planning your day to fit into a bus timetable, or even your parent’s timetable. They've spent the last 16 years plus transporting you about, maybe it's time to gain your independence and do it yourself.

To help start you off, here are a few things you’re going to want to know.

Some things you will need to know

  • Driving Licence - You’re going to need a driving licence before you can get on the road. You can apply for your first licence up to 6 weeks prior to your sixteenth birthday. If you're already a car user and are considering a scooter/motorcycle for commuting, your driving licence should already have moped and motorcycle learner entitlement on it. If you're not sure, call into one of our branches and ask our staff to check your licence for you.
  • CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) - You will have to complete your basic training before you can ride on the road; remember, it’s a training course, not a test. The training is in four segments, all usually completed in a day with the help of our instructors.
  • Cost of Insurance - We all need insurance to ride or drive our vehicles on the road. However, as car insurance costs spirals ever higher, almost out of the reach of young or first-time drivers, it’s likely that a scooter will be a far more affordable option.

Choosing the right scooter for you

As official dealers for Suzuki and Yamaha we have a vast range of scooters, mopeds and 125 bikes to choose from.

Ranging from the 50cc city commuter scooters from Yamaha, to the extremely comfortable and well specced Suzuki Burgman and with a multitude of choices in-between - we have a range of mopeds and scooters to suit your needs.

Whether you're looking for a classically styled scooter or a modern looking economical commuter, our Scooter Centre in Keighley can offer you excellent advice and what we believe are the best value for money deals within 100 miles. With the ever-increasing cost of getting around, moving from a car or public transport to a scooter or motorcycle often makes sense. Find out how much you can save by getting on to 2 wheels.
