Book A Test Ride

Spark Motos operates an extensive range of 100% electric demo scooters and motorcycles so that you can make the best informed selection based on design, performance, range and cost.

Test rides for unlicenced riders

Spark Motos is located within the four-acre grounds of Clifton Nurseries in Addlestone, where we have the opportunity to allow test rides of Super Soco and NIU bikes on private land. Customers of 16 and over can try any of our electric mopeds (28 mph) and customers of 17 and over can try any bikes from the Super Socco and NIU ranges. This facility is available to people who are preparing to take their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) so that these bikes can be experienced in a safe environment.

Basic Requirements

You'll need to provide us with a valid UK licence that entitles you to drive the machine of your choice, a proof of address that's no more than three-months old and your NI number. This will enable us to check your licence and provided it's valid and shows no more than 10 penalty points over the last five years, you'll be good to go.
