  • 5 star review  Did the beginners course yesterday and have to say I really enjoyed it even though I was terrified at times. The tutor Alex was exceptional clearly he loves teaching and made me feel very comfortable and safe. I have now booked the CBT course with them. Definitely recommend.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service - I really enjoyed my CBT renewal and thought the staff were lovely. They gave me a great bike to ride and were highly informative and friendly. My trainer was Little Steve who was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this company.

  • 5 star review  Attended my CBT today, both instructors were patient, understanding and constantly cracking jokes, making you feel at ease when talking to them about any concerns you may have, it was a very chilled day, I had little experience on the road, and didn't necessarily ace everything that I was taught either, however they don't expect perfection. I enjoyed every minute of today. And it was a pleasure to be taught by these guys. I will be back for the full licence soon, thanks again.

  • 5 star review  Excellent friendly and detailed step by step learning with Alex, all the basics were covered for a novice motorcyclist during the two hour beginner session. Highly recommended to anyone who is into or wants to get into motorbikes to ride on the road.

  • 5 star review  I sat on a manual 700cc bike for the first time last week, having been riding a 125 twist and go for the past 12 months. In three days Saferide took me from complete novice to passing my mod 1 and mod 2 class A tests. It has been a truly amazing experience. Huge thanks to Tony and Tony Ten. You built my confidence and enabled me to exceed my expectations.
