  • 5 star review  Done my CBT today with Tony and Steve, had a great day. They were both very thorough and had my safety at the top of their list for today and went above and beyond to make sure i would have the correct skills and knowledge to stay safe in the future too. Even managed to make the day fun. Will definitely recommend to everyone.

  • 5 star review  Really an amazing place to learn anything to do with Bikes. The trainers were professional yet approachable. Spent the whole day learning so much and having a blast doing it. Will definitely be coming back when it's time for my full test.

  • 5 star review  What a great experience! From CBT to DAS I’ve had a great time, talented instructors that don’t just want you to pass your test, but actually care about making you the best rider you can be and all whilst have a fun time. Test aside, being out on the big bikes around Sussex is one of the best things I’ve done this year and is way better than driving experiences you purchase for fun. These guys love biking and want you to as well, but all wrapped-up with some seriousness needed to make you safe – it does what it says on the tin – Safe Rider. Passed both Mod 1 and Mod 2 with a clean sheet, no faults – that’s the standard they train you too. You are probably a bit over trained for the tests (which actually make them easy), but that’s a good thing as passing your test is only the beginning and these guys give you much more than you need just for the test – these are bike skills for life and you’ll actually miss not being there once you’ve passed. Big shout to Steve for the DAS training; great guy, huge experience and cares about what he’s doing, it’s not about the money, it’s getting more bikers on the road to a very high standard of riding. I would thoroughly recommend – if you’re thinking of taking the plunge, then give these guys a call and enjoy the journey!
