  • review rating 5  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!

  • 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  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  A fantastic riding school that helped me pass my DAS at the first time of trying - Steve was a legend of an instructor, Tony is a legend also. Super friendly and I wouldn't recommend them more.

  • review rating 5  I took my DAS with Saferide in Oct 18 and I can't recommend highly enough. The instructors are knowledgeable, personable and insightful, and they put you right at ease. The facilities and location are also great. Steve doesn't just train you to pass your tests, he trains you to be a safe rider and a credit to the motorcycling community. He demands excellence and finds a way to draw it out of even the most nervous of students. Thanks so much guys see you out there! Sam - Brighton
