  • I signed up to the New Rider course. Luke's instructor experience was very apparent and great in quality. Luke was calm, clear and concise. As a new rider I felt very much at ease with the speed at which I was being taught and was very comfortable and not at all pressured. Great providers of training, I highly recommend them!

  • I had a back to biking course today. The instructor Ian was excellent. After a refresher on slow speed control in the centre we went out for a long ride through a good range of environments. He was really clear with his coaching and a great bloke too. If you are considering a back to biking course I would highly recommend it; there was a lot that I had forgotten. It was a nice bike to ride and the instruction is really good

  • 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
