  • 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  Recently completed my DAS course with Big Steve, having also done my CBT with him just over a year ago. I was impressed then and continue to be now. Steve is seriously good at what he does and I knew I was in safe hands. Any concerns I had about getting on a big bike were nipped in the bud and I gained confidence quickly. I passed first time, with a clean sheet, and that's testament to Steve, his dedication and dogged teaching. He's a hard task master but gets excellent results and now I can't ride my new (big) bike without hearing his voice in my head reminding me to do life savers and look out for hazards! It wasn't just about passing the test, it was about becoming a safe rider. Huge thanks to Steve, Tony and the team. I'd definitely recommend Saferide to anyone wanting to get into riding, nowhere else comes close.

  • review rating 5  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!
