  • review rating 5  I did my CBT at Saferide today with Tony having previously done the new rider introduction. I am really impressed with how both tutors helped me through the (very) basics and onto the road today. Despite the rainy conditions I felt safe and looked after (as an older learner, at 55, I'm probably more cautious than some). Tony is a lovely gentleman, and a great teacher - you can tell he wants to do his best by his students. His jokes are not always the best, but you can't have everything. I strongly recommend Saferide to learners at any age and stage. Excellent.

  • review rating 5  I completed the 5 day DAS with Steve as my instructor. I'm in my forties and have no riding experience, the course was intensive and harder than I expected but knowing I was in good hands, and learning how to manage the bike safely was more than I could have hoped. Great feeling when you're presented with the pass certificate, Thanks Steve! Great service from Sue during the booking and arranging phase too, really friendly people, highly recommend

  • review rating 5  Recently completed my DAS course with Big Steve, having also done my CBT with him just over a year ago. I was impressed then and continue to be now. Steve is seriously good at what he does and I knew I was in safe hands. Any concerns I had about getting on a big bike were nipped in the bud and I gained confidence quickly. I passed first time, with a clean sheet, and that's testament to Steve, his dedication and dogged teaching. He's a hard task master but gets excellent results and now I can't ride my new (big) bike without hearing his voice in my head reminding me to do life savers and look out for hazards! It wasn't just about passing the test, it was about becoming a safe rider. Huge thanks to Steve, Tony and the team. I'd definitely recommend Saferide to anyone wanting to get into riding, nowhere else comes close.
