Our course fees are fully inclusive of all costs, including not only the training fees but also the bike hire, fully comprehensive insurance, safety riding equipment and test fees.

  • review rating 5  Brilliant service, from booking with Sue and my CBT with little Steve. I had a brilliant day and felt confident by the end of the course and comfortable during. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to any bike training. (if you can handle the "Dad jokes" form Tony)

  • review rating 5  I owe the Saferide team a huge thank you for turning an obligatory course (CBT renewal) into a really fun day. All of the instructors I met were excellent- patient, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. I mean REALLY knowledgeable- it's quite jaw dropping the amount of collective experience. I will definitely be there again when I decide to go full motorbike license and wouldn't go anywhere else. In fact, I wouldn't have considered a full motorbike license before- I would have been too nervous. But with the Saferide team, I know I'd get excellent, well explained, patient training and would be a competent and safe rider after their tuition. All that, and I'd enjoy the process. Pretty cool.

  • review rating 5  Passed my mod 2 with Safe Ride today, after failing mod 2 with a previous school. I am over the moon, and so thankful to Tony who helped me achieve it. Lovely guy! Loved the MT07 I was using too. Great school will be recommending to everyone I know who wants to get a CBT or full license. Thank you so much guys!! 👍🏻Xx

  • review rating 5  Excellent. Chose SafeRide for my DAS as I did my CBT with them a while back. The company has improved a lot since then. The loaner bike was as listed on the online booking form, instructor was friendly, laid back and took us through all the steps we needed, and then worked through those we needed extra help with. Practising the Mod1 where you actually take it was excellent too. Would recommend to anyone.
