Best motorcycle school, best instructors and best experience all together. Ian made the lessons especially enjoyable - wouldn’t have gotten my full licence without him. Best instructor ever 😎
Jake Westwood
After some other bad experiences with motorcycle trainers I ended up calling Ian and training with him at Excel. The training was everything I could have asked for, he was extremely helpful and answered all of my novice questions without making me feel silly. I would highly recommend Excel to any new beginner riders looking to pass their test quickly and efficiently, I feel I've left the week with good skills, knowledge and foundations to build upon. I couldn't have asked for any better.

I have spent around 6 days with both Ian and Barry, learning how to ride from scratch. I couldn’t recommend them enough, they both know exactly what they’re talking about and their love for riding is clear in their work! If you are even considering learning to ride I wouldn’t look anywhere else for instructors
Highly recommend!! Excell Motorcycle Training cares about the safety of motorcyclists, they are ridged with their training no short cuts are taken. Id never ridden a bike before and had no confidence when I started. Ian is a patient and calm man that will adapt his teaching style to suit the student. He doesn’t get frustrated or annoyed if you don't learn quickly. I now have my license but also the confidence to be on the road on my own thanks to Ian.

Had a great experience training with Ian for my full bike licence. From start to finish was so helpful and really helped me learn how to control the bike. Would certainly recommend to anyone!
Andrew Anderson
Passed my mod 1 and 2 due to brilliant instruction from Ian. No way would I have passed without such a friendly professional instruction. Real human being real nice. Thank you Ian so much I can now do the NC500 With my partner in July. 😎👍👌

Ian is an excellent instructor. Tailors his tuition to what is needed. Very friendly and knows where all the best sausage sandwiches are located. I would recommend him to anyone!
I had a fantastic week with Ian, using one of Excel’s bikes. I had no previous riding experience and completed my CBT, Mod1 and 2 tests. Ian is a fantastic instructor and made me feel completely at ease at all times. He’s incredibly supportive and you can tell he’s extremely passionate about riding and teaching others to ride safely (rather than to pass their tests).

Ian at Excel Motorcycle Training was absolutely fantastic and had made a dream come true. He is extremely relaxing and calming when you're obviously nervous. His vast experience and knowledge of motorcycling is excellent and I would very very highly recommend Excel, not just for DAS Mod 1 and Mod 2, but all other types of Training from CBT to advanced and more. I will definitely be going back for further advanced training once I've gotten used to my new bike. Thanks Ian and really appreciated.
Stewart Mayne
I had a great day at my CBT! The instructor was brilliant and was quite laid back rather than all guns blazing. He focused on all modules in detail and made sure we got it right. Thank you Ian from Excel in Colchester
Steve Emmins
I can't thank Ian enough. My daughter in law had recently passed her CBT (with another trainer), but she was far from confident on the road. 3 hours training with Excel has made a huge difference.
Becky Bryant
I highly recommend Excel. I undertook a CBT in Colchester; I arrived as a complete beginner but my instructor Ian quickly put my nerves to rest with his easy-to-understand instructions and patience. I will definitely be returning to continue my training.
Laura Harrison
Did my CBT last week with Excel, couldn’t recommend them enough!! Felt very supported and calm especially when out on the bike and had so much advice about future biking possibilities! If you are considering doing your CBT these guys are perfect :)
Teymour Kashani
I had Ian as my instructor for a few weeks training me for mod1 and mod2 working towards my full A license. I had an excellent time learning from Ian he's a brilliant teacher and I would really recommend to anyone learning to ride!
Seb Rees
Ian at Excel Motorcycle Training has been my Instructor since 1995. He has supported and educated me through the learning journey from CBT and Direct Access through to achieving repeated Gold standard tests every three years as a RoSPA Advanced Motorcyclist. Ian teaches in a very calm, supportive, progressive and holistic manner and constantly engages with rider and industry development - what he doesn't know is probably not worth knowing.
