Just done my CBT with the team. Brilliant instructor's, really professional, take the time to go through everything step by step. 100% recommended, I'll be going back for my full licence very soon.
Ellis Cotter
very pleasurable experience.. Every member of staff is the perfect balance of friendly and professional.. They make you feel super comfortable whilst still getting across everything you need to know to pass your tests.. Can't fault them at all and couldn't recommend them enough... :)
Shah Haider
Sooo happy I passed my mod 1 and mod 2 at first attempts. Instructor Collins and rhi were both amazing teachers with a world of knowledge. Andy was so helpful and allowed me to pay instalments as I went along. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Nicholas Brookes
Collin was the most calm person with me, I definitely struggle with instructions and processing information. And even when I was losing patience with myself he kept calm and professional. So massive thank you to him. They had a full range of clothing to hand and all there bikes are well maintained. Much recommended 10/10
Chris Hubble
Just want to say a massive thank you to all the guys at ART for getting me through my mod 2 finally! After nearly giving up you gave the the encouragement and push I needed to get me the pass I wanted! Can't recommend these guys enough very professional and friendly they go the extra mile for you.. Got me from my CBT through to my Mod 2 can't thank you enough anyone looking for professional motorcycle tuition then book with ART 🤜🏼💥🤛🏼
Sue Eary
Very professional.. recently completed my cbt with Rob & Heidi. Such thorough instructors and made you feel at ease. Literally went through absolutely everything possible with us. Definitely recommend this company. Really enjoyed the day, Can’t wait for the next stage. Thank you Art x

Great place to learn how to ride a motorbike . I did a direct access course with ART, never having been on a bike before hand managing to pass first time! the instruction is second to none. Great bunch of instructors with plenty of patience. They defiantly provide a great introduction to the world of motorbikes. couldn't recommend more.
Ania Cz
Had a great experience getting my full licence at ART Rider Training. Andy and Colin are professional, experienced and very patient:-) Thank you! Definitely coming back for the advanced training.
Richard Piccone
I can't recommend ART enough! Everyone there has great riding experience and they know how to share it to give you the best possible instruction. I went to ART for a Direct Access full licence course having not ridden for about 15 years, and from CBT to Mod 1/2 the instructors' guidance and encouragement boosted my confidence no end! If it wasn't for my own silly mistake on Mod 2 I would've been from CBT to full licence within a couple of weeks thanks to ART, and I'll be coming back for their Advance Rider course! Huge thanks!
Nik kauter
Had a great day with the team at ART Rider Training. Very helpful and kind guys. Made you feel welcome and relaxed. Would definitely recommend using ART Riders for your CBT. Thank you hope to see you in near future for a full licence.

I had a great time doing some refresher training with Steve. He is knowledgeable and his friendly and calm demeanour really helped me to relax, which allowed me to take on board all the tips he was giving me. I feel more confident now to keep on riding and learning. Next step= Advanced riding course...
Completed my A2 with this lot a few years back, liked them so much I came back for my full A license upgrade! The instructors are excellent. They're calm, knowledgeable and patient. They really do make learning with them a pleasure. If you're doing any motorcycle training, go here. Seriously, they're a lovely bunch.

I cannot recommend ART highly enough, I was nervous about learning to ride and the instructors did their absolute best to put me at ease and help me feel comfortable. I wasn’t ready for road riding the first time I attended a CBT (down to my nerves and I was determined to ride a geared bike over a scooter) but when I went back another day I felt far more confident and now hold my certificate. I opted for one to one training and had Colin as my instructor who was honestly fantastic, he helped me push past overthinking everything on the road ride and finally relax as I kept holding myself back eventhough I knew what to do. When I got over that it was a really fun experience and I’m looking forward to buying myself a bike.
Paul Clarke
So great to find a group of instructors who really care about the success of their students. A great team who coached me through my mod 1 and 2. Flexible sessions to work around your own schedule. I have ridden a 125 for about 1000 miles before my course and the team Made me feel very confident on the bigger bike from the start. All the instructors are really friendly and relatable, this leads to a great atmosphere to be in and certainly makes the whole process easier and more enjoyable. They have great advice from their own experience and I’ve kept hold of a couple of pieces of wisdom that I hope to never forget. Have to say a really fair price as well. Not the cheapest I found but the quality of training speaks for itself and there is true value to be had in using these guys. Remember, short term cost is not the most important factor! I’m so glad I chose to use ART. Honestly would recommend this company to anyone.
Halo Lucifer

So I passed my Mod 2 on Monday after passing my Mod 1 the week before - it’s taken a week to sink in as I’ve been so busy… but now Friday has hit… I’ve had a minute to think about it!!! I loved every minute of my training with Steve…. He was spot on - he made my ear a little deaf - but it was just what I needed to pass both Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time!!!! He trained me for both! Rich took me for Mod1 test and told me I had all the skills needed to pass - just focus - those words gave me confidence and led me to pass with no faults!!! Brilliant ride back to the office after the test - he already ran me through mod 2 tips… just brilliant really!!! Colin took me for my Mod 2 test… proper passionate… gave me great advice - and when he found out I passed - he celebrated more than me!!! Just amazing to see… Honestly was an amazing experience learning with these guys… to the point where it was bitter sweet to pass as Now I would not being seeing these guys for a while… Great great great place to learn how to ride Don’t even think twice!!! Thanks Steve, Rich and Colin! David Camarinha

Rebecca “BWrex” Lynch
Just finished my CBT with ART Training and I had such a good time. I've been really anxious with learning to drive etc but I had none of that on my moped. They explained things well and didn't make me feel like I was dragging behind or anything.
Erion Hysnelaj
I can't recommend enough this school. From the CBT few months back to Mod2 test this Tuesday everyone has been so patient, helpful and friendly especially Rob,Andy and Steve. Thanks to all of them I passed both mod 1&2 on 1st attempt. Thank you so much and see you all soon.

Completed my CBT yesterday courtesy of Colin and Mark's expertise. It was an enjoyable and thoroughly informative experience and I couldn't recommend highly enough. Thanks gents, I look forward to the next steps with you all!
Chloe Francklin
My partner took his CBT training a week ago Sunday, he asked me to leave a review! He said the training was thorough and in depth and the guys really wanted to make sure you were road confident, and not a danger to other people! If they didn’t feel confident with you on the road the will not pass you! My partner is so confident and loving being on the road, he said he will definitely return to do his full motorbike test with ART rider training! Thanks again!
Robert Rosenwould
The training was first class really enjoyed it and the instructor was very good tutor would recommend the school to anyone trying for their licence many thanks art and u Steve 👍👍👍

Great guys taking me from no license to fully A license in a couple of days training. The instructors are very good at what they do, soak all the information you can get from them as this helps alot on passing the test on the day. A Happy rider today!!

John Farrugia
An absolutely brilliant training school,the instructors are professionals and curtious. I took my CBT, Module 1 and Module 2 with these guys and past all 3 FIRST TIME. THANKS LADS. Have recommended to a few people, whom I think will benefit greatly from ART training. Thanks again.

The team here are professional and really want get the best out of your motorcycle learning journey. Not only do they teach you, they have a fantastic range of motorcycle items from helmets to clothing to bike security.... it really is your one stop shop!!!....
Joseph Holloway
Good teachers, quick and easy training to get your CBT. They don’t have a lot in the way of equipment but they are obviously in the process of upgrading the place and I have no doubt they’ll have more equipment and services available soon. discount is always nice for students too. Excellent work ART keep it up. :D
haley christou
Gained my full bike license here. Fantastic place for information, motorcycle training and buying accessories.
Steven StClair
Totally biased review warning 'cos I passed! All my instructors were patient, attentive and professional. I trained in December (damn cold and snow/ice some days). Always willing to accommodate. Provided bikes were well maintained and all equipment of good quality. Radio comms worked flawlessly. Highly recommended!
Kirby Dan
Done my mod 1 & 2 here passed first try both mods NO PROBLEM! Purely because Darren was my instructor, honestly top bloke. He knows what his doing. If you've got him you'll pass easy. Definitely reccomend this place 100%.
Louis Leyland
Cannot express the quality of service enough. Darren was a massive help and got me from not riding a 600cc before to passing Mod1 & Mod2 on the first go of each. Never would have thought that would have been possible when starting. He was excellent ast teaching others aswel. Big thanks to all at ART. Thanks again.
Nicolas Horsfall
Great service and friendly staff, I did my CBT here they really know there stuff and the shop stocks most motorcycle supplies that you might need or they can get in brought in from the supplier, gear for you and equipment for the bike.
Paul Flowerday
Done my CBT with them on Sunday the 3/9/17 with a good friend of mine. Was a brilliant day and such great value for money. I think i can speak on behalf of everyone in my group on Sunday when saying that both Colin and Andy are very knowledgable helpful and proffesional. They also make some of the best tea i have ever tatsted!
Dj Blink-Blink
Best place to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Nice team who are very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend
Andy Taylor
Motorcycle Training School with a growing shop under the RealRoads Motorcycles name. Lots of development taking place to the premises - stockists for Oxford Products, Alpinestars, olfi cameras, AVON Tyres, Muc-off, Bullit Jeans and Herald Motor Co bikes! Always tea or coffee on the go if you drop in!
Rob Green
Did a post CBT session on a 125 and a 600. Excellent training, good kit for hire and a really good experience. I'll definitely be going to these guys if I choose to do my full bike test.
Taze Josh Little
LOOK NO FURTHER!!!! In my opinion ART are the only motorcycle training company out there, these guys aren't a big company churning people over with a maybe next time attitude they care about you and want you to pass first time. They teach you how to ride a bike safely not just pass your test. I've done my CBT and DAS with these guys and passed all of it first time because of their attention to detail. I have to mention a few people in particular... Darren (legend), Rich(awesome guy) and Kylie(get that CBT done!). Brilliant instructors and staff who make you feel confident, comfortable and ready to take on your tests. I honestly can't recommend them enough, 2 of my boys have already signed up for training because of how I will not shut up about how good these guys are. Thanks so much for looking after me guys, keep up the great work I'll always send people your way. Taze Little
Nash D

Jon V
