About Us

Roto Rookies

Roto Rookies Motorcycle Centre was established in 2000 and is situated in Benoni on a relaxed private 5 acre facility. A comprehensive beginners course is offered to students who have never ridden before but have a good bicycle balance.

Roto Rookies provide the motorcycle, helmet, gloves, etc. The student does not need a learners licence or special clothing.

The course starts at 9 AM and is completely practical. The student will be introduced to the controls on the Roto Bike, where they will be able to learn their first pull offs without having to balance or steer the motorcycle.

This is the first 20 min of the training and it safely eliminates any of the dangerous first time common rider errors.

The student will be given a Yamaha Tw200 and due to our very small classes are able to progress at a steady relaxed pace.

All aspects of motorcycle riding will be introduced, these include neat stop and starts, emergency braking, cornering, gearing up and gearing down with engine braking explained, incline start, intersection work etc.

Don't make the common mistake of buying a motorcycle before you have learned to ride, once you have mastered it you will have a better idea of what you want and what you are capable of handling.


Look forward to training you
