COVID 19 (Coronavirus) UPDATE 09/03/21

Motorcycle lessons, including DAS instruction, will restart on 29th March, unless coronavirus data prevents government from easing restrictions.
Motorcycle tests will restart on 12th April unless coronavirus data prevents government from easing restrictions.
Please contact us on 01273 452080 to re-schedule if your CBT, new rider or renewal course has been postponed.
We will contact all students booked on to DAS courses and those waiting to reschedule a test between 26/12/20 – 2/4/21, over the next few days.
We have a mammoth task ahead of us to get through the backlog of students affected so please bear with – it’s going to be a very busy few days!!

We have stepped up measures to keep our equipment, clothing and training areas sanitised and recommend that instructors and students observe social distancing measures wherever possible and wear a face covering when necessary. We strongly advise that you bring your own kit – jacket, gloves, helmet, in ear headphones – if you can, and your own refreshments.

  • 5 star review  I've just passed my full licence with these guys , and what fab guys they are . I had a few bad experiences with other training schools so was a little nervous. Tony my instructor was amazing , he never criticized only encouraged me and spent 5 days making me a confident and safe rider . I would highly recommend saferide for any tuition that you require, whether it's from a new rider to a refresher......plus Tony's jokes are well worth the time on the bike 😀

  • 5 star review  I was thinking about learning to ride for a long time and finally decided to do it. These guys helped me through every stage leading on to the pass. Great bunch of people who know what they are doing. They are not just instructors, they are bikers who enjoy riding.

  • 5 star review  I did my CBT with these guys after having done one previously with a different company and I have to say that these guys are incredibly good. Their teaching method is really helpful, and they are calm and patient with new riders. Steve and Tony are both also really funny, and knowledgeable with a lot of riding experience between them. I would happily return to these guys
