About Biker School Glasgow

Biker School Glasgow is a family-owned and operated business that is dedicated to providing the highest level of motorcycle training from CBT to Full Motorcycle Licence.

Their chief instructor, Alan, has over 14 years of experience and is one of the most seasoned instructors in the West of Scotland. Alan's passion for his career is evident in his glowing reviews, and his ability to modify training methods to suit the individual needs of each student. Biker School's priority is their students' safety, both on the road and on the training pad, which is why all of their staff and instructors hold valid First Aid Certification.

Biker School Glasgow offers students a secure, DVSA-approved training pad to conduct all off-road elements of training, along with a professional indoor training facility for the theory elements of the day.

Biker School Glasgow takes pride in having a variety of training bikes available for students. Their motorcycle fleet is of the highest standard, including the latest Kawasaki Z125, Z400 & Z650 models, Keeway RKS125 motorcycles, and Sym Jet and AJS Firefox for students that would like to train on a scooter.

If you're wanting to get to Biker School Glasgow by car, it's incredibly easy. Located just off the M8, with lots of parking nearby, the school is very conveniently located. If public transport is more your thing, Cardonald railway station is a mere 30-minute walk away.

The school is located only a few minutes walk away from Braehead shopping centre so if you forget to bring snacks and drinks on the day, rest assured you can grab something from there. That being said, we always recommend bringing your own refreshments with you from home, to ensure you're fully fuelled throughout your training.

If you're in Glasgow and looking to get on two wheels, look no further - Biker School Glasgow is the perfect school for you!

Brilliant training facilities, amazing and kind hearted staff who are very well experienced and equipped with the gear and necessary indo to help any rider of any level. Passed my cbt today and my instructor was absolutely amazing and quick to help and point anything that needed work 10/10 will be back again to do my A2 next
Well what can I say in one word to describe Biker School Glasgow ✨ Fantasmagorical ✨ I think this describes the Biker School Glasgow very well indeed I attended on the 30/03/2024 for my CBT and was met by Alan and Bruce and their new instructor Lewis who I had teaching me Lewis is an asset to the Biker School Glasgow I’m going to follow up and do my DAS If you’re looking for a motorcycle bike school I’d highly recommend
Brendan Evans
I highly recommend the Biker School for their excellent teaching. All the instructors here are highly experienced and will get you driving safely and test ready in a thorough and prompt fashion. Best spot for your motorbike needs in Glasgow.

Hi All, I Went from never sat on a motorcycle, to passing my test in less than 6 weeks. I can only thank all the team at biker school, for their knowledge, patience & professionalism in helping me obtaining my full motorcycle licence. The team are all friendly and approachable and if your lucky enough Alan might tell you some his brilliant jokes😉. My partner is currently undergoing her training to gain her (DAS) as there is nowhere else i would recommend to her👌. . Cheers Danny

Undoubtedly the least professional service I've ever used. Supposed to be accommodating for CBT beginners, unless you don't get it within the first few minutes it they give up and ask you to leave. I'll not say anything about the foul-mouthed "instructor" that did nothing but swear and complain. Avoid at all costs!!!
Trevor Jefferies
I was very impressed with the quality of the Instruction I was given when I went for a “Return to Biking” session. I’d never actually stopped biking but I was aware that my self taught skills of half a century ago needed lot of polishing up. Bruce was excellent in identifying what I was doing incorrectly and teaching me the correct, and safe, way to do it. I’m going to practice my new found skills, and book another session before long. Thank you for a fantastic couple of hours.
Jamie Connelly
Passed my motorbike test today and I would never go anywhere else! All of my training was of an excellent quality, and I felt incredibly supported despite not being the most confident of riders. All of the equipment is very well taken care of and I never had any issues using the bikes. I would definitely recommend doing your training here!
Stuart Macdonald
The best school for learner motorcyclists, in my opinion. I completed my MOD 1 & MOD 2 with this school. I found Bruce and Alan to be very knowledgeable & friendly.
Went from never having a bike larger than 125cc to passing my MOD1 & 2 four days later through the Direct Access course. The school was helpful at all points of the process and the instructor Bruce was knowledgeable and consistent in pointing out areas to improve on. Strongly recommend to anyone in the area who wants to gain their license

Booked the DAS course to obtain my full A licence with Biker School Glasgow, and I passed my Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time. Alan was my instructor for most of the course, and I went out with Bruce prior to my Mod 2 test for a pre test ride. Both guys are fantastic and really know their stuff. Every lesson I was out with Alan I learned something new, he was patient with any mistakes I made, explained things clearly to ensure they didn’t keep happening, and I felt more comfortable each time I went out on the road with him. We ironed out any creases in my riding and I feel more confident and safe on the roads as a result. I am over-joyed that I have obtained my A licence and would like to thank everyone at Biker School Glasgow for their support during my training course. I would highly recommend them, and I will make sure to improve on everything they have taught me.
Andy Fisher
Used Biker School Glasgow back in August and September last year to gain my direct access to motorcycling. Took me from a total novice who had never ridden a bike from CBT right through to fully licensed on the road ensuring I passed both mod 1 and mod 2 first time all with in the space of 6 weeks. Couldn't recommend these guys enough and glad I choose them for my training.
Robert Irvine
Probably the best rider training school in Glasgow. I came for direct access and was very impressed by Alan and Bruce's knowledge and training ability. They keep you riding correctly the entire time you are out with them, pointing out even the smallest adjustments to improve your riding in order to obtain your license. They know the roads well and will train you on a wide variety of junctions and road situations designed to make you think about your judgement that ultimately keep you safe and make you a better rider. They keep the tone light and will have a laugh if you're doing well, this really helps you enjoy the learning process. I've tried to think of any negatives but apart from some of Alan's bad jokes lol this is a great school and I would recommend to anyone check it out.
Craig Mitchell
Just completed my CBT with Biker school Glasgow and loved it. The instructor Norrie was great. Very patient with a good sense of humour which made the day more fun. We’ll delivered course, very professional and welcoming. I’m booked in for my direct acsesss. Highly recommended service.
Superb biking school, after a shaky start, I completed my CBT thanks to excellent tuition from Alan, Bruce and Norrie. I'm just looking forward to delivery of a 125cc to continue my learning.
alexander cowie
Just passed my direct access course at Biker School today, I have to say a massive thank you to the admin staff and to the instructors Alan, Norrie and Brian for the fantastic instruction start to finish. If you were like me always wanted to ride a motorcycle, then stop dreaming and start riding with Biker School 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Ross Campbell
I booked in with Biker School Glasgow in December 2021 to get my lessons (direct access) in January/February 2022. The bikes are all well maintained, comfortable (well maybe not the 125's for someone who is quite tall) and the intercoms are cleaned before use and are easy to hear the instructors voice when on rides. From the first lesson on the 125's then onto the 650's the training was structured, enjoyable and very informative. MOD 1 passed without any issues but a hiccup on the MOD 2 meant another had to be booked which they were able to get me in on the minimum wait of 10 working days (cost for this was £120). Thankfully successful on the second attempt and straight home to get the first ride on my own bike. I can't recommend Biker School Glasgow enough!
Jane Stevenson
I went here after another driving school basically told me I couldn’t ride a bike - after 10 lessons. Sat and passed my MOD 1 within 1 month. Waiting for my MOD2 date - wish me luck! They guys and girls re-installed my confidence and had me on a 650 after one lesson. The difference in instruction was night and day. They even have lowered bike for us who are vertically challenged - I’m 5’1” on a good day! Excellent all round Bike School!
Kevin Scollon
Absolute pleasure learning with you guys. Instructor's were spot on, with an abundance of knowledge and experience while making my transition to the bigger bike alot of fun. Not only that I feel my riding confidence has improved massively, in turn making me a better rider. Must also say a big thanks to the girls who organised all my training, making everything run smoothly. Thanks again🏍️👍
Alan Duffy
Great school. Did all my training in just over a month. All instructors were great. The bikes were all new. The pass rate is high. It's right beside the test center. Dont hesitate to book up with the school.
annna b
A very friendly atmosphere. Lovely, friendly instructors explain everything you have to do very well and expertly. I did my CBT a week ago. Even though English is not my first language, there was no problem:):)
Kyle Shearer
Was great the whole day any questions I had was answered and I wasn’t rushed on anything. If I needed extra time on anything they were more than happy to help and guide me. I was nervous before it but as soon as we got put on the track I started to feel more comfortable. Definitely doing my A2 with these guys amazing people
Gordon Love
Completed my CBT with Alan and I must say his instruction and patience throughout the day was fantastic, he explained everything in a nice and easy manner which really helped keep me relaxed even when making errors, the rest of the staff were very friendly and happy to answer any questions, I can't thank them all enough for giving me the confidence to actually get out there on the road on a bike, will definitely be back in the future to hopefully progress to a full licence.
brenda mclaren
The guys really put you at ease. I did my CBT at nearly 60 years old and the weather was awful and it rained nearly all day but the training was great and I've gone and bought a 125 and looking forward to doing my DAS within the next year. Thanks to everyone involved.
Elizabeth Keatley
I was very nervous about going out on the road but after the all the great training and advice, I loved it. So much so that I bought my own bike the next day. Thank you for making it a great day.
Good laugh with the guys and made me feel calm considering it was my first time on a bike. great day and fun experience
Young Ewan here. I would like to thank the instructors for an absolutely wonderful day having undertaken the CBT and passing!! I can't express how informative and helpful both instructors were during all stages of the CBT. Both instructors left no stone unturned when it came to what to expect on the roads and just as important how to operate the motorcycle in a safe manner. I should also mention in these times that they are taking all the necessary steps when keeping customers safe against covid19 Most importantly the instructors provided a friendly and comfortable environment to learn in. Thanks again From Young Ewan

All the team at Biker School Glasgow are all great. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to get onto 2 wheels in the future.

I gained my full bike license with the family-run Biker School and cannot praise them highly enough. My instructor, Allan, was extremely patient as well as professional. He made me feel completely at ease and allowed me to learn at my own pace. He gave constructive criticism and praise in equal amounts, necessary for confidence-building and ultimate success. I miss you all, Lauren, Catherine and Allan... and little Lola the pooch! Thanks for everything! Michelle x
Donna Campbell
Great friendly atmosphere. Very welcoming. Made me feel very relaxed and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to either start their biking life or get a refresher as i did
daniel karpinski
Fantastic family run business. All staff and instructors are very friendly and full of knowledge. I carried out all of my training from CBT to full unrestricted licence and couldn't be happier with the results. Location is fantastic being so close to the test centre for practice. Facilities are extremely clean and the bikes are fresh from the dealership. Overall a great company with great people working there. I would highly recommend anyone that's looking for training to visit bike school Glasgow ☺️
richard carrera
training here was really good, all the staff were friendly and professional. no corners were cut and all the subjects and training covered were very helpful to a novice like myself. old or young you will start your biking here with good knowledge and help from an experienced rider (Bruce in my case) and hopefully go on to enjoy safely your time in riding motorbikes. cheers Ricky.
Reiff Gaskell
Reading a bunch of 5 star reviews that are all overly earnest can be a strange thing, at least for me it is. But for this small family run company, it’s really just happy, content customers trying to give back. Lauren was easy, swift and helpful to communicate with. Alan was effortlessly great to learn from. Bikes were perfect. Great set up. The learning process took me from a place of no confidence to zen. I looked forward to the sessions every time. Though involved in an accident that derailed their fleet they were there just trying to facilitate me. So to sum up, sad to see the back of them. Looking forward to affording a bike that I can come back and show off with aha. cheers for the good times

When I first arrived I was greeted by all the staff who were friendly, welcoming and all had great laugh. Allan and Bruce are both great guys and the knowledge they have combined with an amazing talent for teaching is no doubt what makes them the best. At the start of the day I was rather intimidated but by the end I felt as if I was out on a ride with a mate and even had to keep an eye on my speed! to say I'm hooked would be an understatement, thanks to all of you for helping me take my first steps and Ill see you all soon! :)
