  • 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  This was a brilliant day. Very thorough. Graham is a great instructor and a skillful teacher. He slowed us down and had good techniques to make sure we understood everything. He is also generous in imparting knowledge and advice about all aspects of bikes, equipment and maintainance. A week later, when I bought a bike and took my first ride alone, 8 felt completely confident, as if I'd been riding for years. Big thank you to the whole team

  • 5 star review  I had my first 'New Rider' lesson with Luke, it was the fist time I ever rode a 125 and I was so nervous. Luke was so patient and so reassuring. By the end of the two hour session I had already learnt more than I thought I would and was riding around the yard comfortably and confidently! Had my second lesson with Alex, and he was brilliant, didn't miss a detail and I was soon changing gears and moving through slow controls with ease. Completed by CBT with Little Steve and Tony, I was on a different bike and was so anxious but Steve took time over lunch to help me out so I was ready for the road. Was on the road with Tony and his hilarious jokes and reassurance kept me calm when I was panicking. Everyone at Saferide is AMAZING. Big thanks to Sue for all her help too!

  • 5 star review  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)

  • 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.
