Outstanding!! Couldn't have chosen anyone better to learn with. Chris and Chris super friendly, patient and helpful throughout every step.
Bikes and gear provided are clean and of a high standard and your wellbeing, comfort and confidence are close to heart for these chaps.
Couldn't recommend enough 👌
A massive thank you to Chris and his team at Shires, they have all been incredible throughout the entire process. I went from never riding a bike to passing my full A license in no time at all. They are nothing but supportive, helpful and have patience, could not ask for more from an instructor.
Brilliant tuition from all the instructors I had! From CBT to full licence through the direct access scheme, really informative instructors could answer all my questions and was very comfortable riding with them. Already clocking the miles on my CB650R thanks to them!
I recently completed my motorcycle CBT training with this centre and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The instructors were incredibly patient, knowledgeable and friendly. They went above and beyond to ensure that I felt comfortable and confident on the bike, and provided invaluable feedback to help me improve my riding skills. I would highly recommend this centre to anyone looking to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Thank you to the team for such a positive experience and looking forward to come back for my unrestricted bike license training!
Quite simply the very best Motorcycle Training School forget Peterborough but in our region!
From booking my CBT through to passing my Mod 2 (all at the first attempt) I found the delivery of the training to be methodical and well structured with a special mention the Matt and Chris the two amazing Instructors who both taught me to a high standard of competency with their friendly, approachable personalities which made the training thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you to you both for helping me pass the full course and making me a safe and confident rider.
I really can't recommend Shires Motorcycle Training highly enough to anyone thinking about learning to ride a motorbike and passing the tests.
DO NOT waste your money going with any other training school! 10/10 A++++++
I was very apprehensive at the start of my training, but these guys are great! My journey to becoming a safe bike user was actually an easier one, because these guys really care. They were all friendly, professional and really knowledgeable. Through their training and observations, I was able to gain the skill and confidence to gain my CBT. Without a shadow of doubt, I would recommend these guys to EVERYONE. This has been a great experience for the me ...and I'm sure it will be for you too.
A highly professional training team with expert instruction from CBT to Mod 2 in my case. Fantastic attention to detail and excellent confidence building through all the stages.
Many thanks to Chris and Chris and Matt.
I will be back for more advanced training in due course!
Couldn't be more pleased. The instructors Matt and Jon were top notch. Very informative and concise.
The bikes were in very good condition s was all the safety gear.
I was made to feel confident and safe at all times.
I highly recommend using this school and if I ever need to I will definitely go back again.
Thanks very much matt for the extra confidence you showed in me during the last hour. It has made me feel much happier about continuing my bike licence.
Great experience doing my CBT yesterday. Chris was friendly, patient and professional, even when it took me ages to get my head around the clutch, but throughout the day it was completely anxious free. Highly recommended!
Started with no riding experience at all, and within just over a month had gone from CBT to passing my Mod 2 test. I had Matt for the majority of my training, who I found to be extremely knowledgeable and approachable, and really easy to get on with! Although we were training for the tests, it was a good laugh and very enjoyable. Quality of instructors is fantastic. Cannot recommend Shires Peterborough enough, 5 stars any day of the week!
Amazing teachers! I highly recommend. Matt and Chris are so helpful.
Jonathan Mark Hadden
Highly recommended! A really good experience.
I had tried a CBT at an alternative provider and had been disappointed with the experience.
Shires was totally different. The instructor was very supportive and it was a pleasure completing the course, despite the cold and rain!
I did my A2 course. I passed module 1 and 2 first time. My instructor was Matt and I honestly couldn’t fault him, very reassuring and helped build my confidence back after it being torn to shreds by another ridding school in Peterborough. Toni was very helpful and made me feel at ease immediately. Would 100% recommend!
Would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn to ride. Massive thanks to the lovely Toni for organising my training and tests. As a totally new rider I cannot thank the amazing instructor Matt enough for everything he's taught me and for being so patient and encouraging with me 😁
I don't have word to explain how professional the company runs their trainings and preparation for the tests. My trainer Matt did everything he could to make me feel relaxed but safe at the same time. The way he explain the theory and teaches the practical side of riding is incredible.
Motorbikes that company uses are adjusted for short rides as I am which makes me feel safer. Intercom system they use is top brand with great quality of sounds. Fantastic experience!Thanks for supporting me with passing my full licence!
Two days ago I had pleasure to pass my MOD1 and MOD2 – both them at the first time !! – I not had any experience in riding bike (well few rides 20 yrs ago as kid only). DAS course was brilliant from start to finish our instructor Matt had show us a lot of patience and amazing people skills. Training is nice balanced to prepare for both tests – time spend on bike is more than enough to make feel confident on two wheels. Even that English is not my first language Matt makes all nice and clear so communication was excellent. Thank you Shires and Matt to introduce me to Bikes 😊 See you on the road and again much appreciate your support !! If I could I would give 10 stars. So few thinks I like:
1. Best instructor !
2. Bikes – good condition 2020 Kawasaki 650 – nice in drive and well looked after
3. Lots of different size of jacket, helmets etc
4. 5 hr in test centre were we could practice.
Thank you for all the help and support in assisting me with achieving the confidence to pass my motorcycle test 1st time,(mod1 & 2) first class tuition from Matt, in at word ( dedication to his job is an understatement ) Matt is very calm and reassuring you whilst giving you the very best advice and assurance, ensuring you are safe at all times throughout the course , A thank you also to Toni , who works tirelessly to ensure all tests are covered even if an examiner goes off sick, she re arranged for myself to get my mod 1 covered at Leicester, who are also another great team to have met.... Matt & Toni you are a true credit to Shires Motorcycle Training Team, well done keep up the excellent work ......
Excellent from start to finish. As a shorter rider I was able to go and sit on their low seat Z650 which put my mind at ease that I could handle the bike. Matt is a very laid back instructor, easy to get along with and very knowledgable. He will take his time with you to make sure you not only pass your test but have the skills to be safe on the roads afterwards. I have experience of some other schools in the area but don't even look at those, go straight to Shires!
Great tuition, Matt is very easy to get along with and makes everything easy. Would recommend to anyone
Awesome guys. Patient, supportive and encouraging. Matt was a brilliant tutor and his methods of getting over his teaching were superb. I would fully recommend Shires as the place to go!!
I cannot recommend these guys enough. Everything from the first phone call to the tests at the end were very professional. Both Toni and Matt are such nice people and are always there to give you a hand if you need it. I managed to pass my CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time with these guys having no previous riding experience before my CBT. I would highly recommend this training school, i cannot fault it what so ever! Thanks again guys!
Excellent training school! Done my cbt mod 1 and mod 2 - passed first time as got trained very well by Matt real nice guy big thank you to Toni aswel! Highly recommended!
Excellent tutorage from knowledgeable guys. With a good sense of humour aswell
Great instructors, really clear instruction and go at your pace. Always looking to help with booking test/training dates and Plenty of rider advice. Can’t recommend enough, both me and my husband started our motorbike journey with shires from our CBT to passing our mod 2. Made friends along the way with the team and will keep in touch. 5 star service.
Absolutely brilliant process, saved me a ton of money, instructions were given clearly and helped me pass my progressive mod 1&2 with no issues. Would highly recommend for both new and experienced riders!
An excellent service and price. Great instruction from Matt who got me through my CBT, Mod 1 & 2 first attempts no problems. Admin smoothly dealt with by Toni.
Cannot thank the Shires Peterborough team enough. From first contact with Toni right through CBT, MOD1 and MOD2 training with Matt and Nigel the team have been fantastic. If anyone is thinking of getting their bike licence, this is the place to go. The bikes and kit available for training is top notch and well maintained. From start to finish you will receive excellent training, encouragement and advice. A definite 5* rating from me! 🙂
I went to Shires Motorcycle Training Peterborough to do my Mod 1 & Mod 2. Toni was very friendly on the phone booking me in for appropriate training and Tests. Huge thanks goes to Matt & Nigel, Matt for getting me through my Mod 1, and Nigel for getting me though Mod 2. They are brilliant at encouraging, advising, teaching techniques and building confidence for a life time of safe riding. Bikes used are well maintained and new models. Many thanks to you all, I would highly recommend this Team to get you though the training and tests.
Nice staff, good teachers, made me feel at ease and built my confidence on the bike. Made passing first time easy, would definitely recommend over other schools in the area !!!
Took my cbt today with shires even tho the weather was shocking the whole experience was second to none Phil the instructor was outstanding he explained everything brilliantly even when I was getting frustrated with myself at times he keep me calm and we worked together to reach our goal so I cant sing shires praises enough a first class day many thanks
I have recently passed my Das course with Shires and I have to say the whole experience was brilliant! They really do have a great team, very knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely be coming back to complete my unrestricted A licence in two years time. Finally, I would just like to thank Toni and Matt for all the help and guidance which made the course very enjoyable.
I highly recommend shires motorcycle training, you wont be disappointed.
I’m absolutely amazed with my time there. Everything was way beyond my expectations. I can only thank you guys for your time, patience and professionalism. Best Regards!
From start to finish the whole team at Shires and especially Toni have been truly amazing.
Myself and especially my son can’t thank them enough, not many companies would of moved heaven and earth like Shires did.
PS. He is loving his new found independence and that is thanks too you all.
Great team and can’t recommend them enough.
These guys are fantastic - everything you could want from a bike school. I'm not going to dwell on this point, but I started my training with another large well known bike school and was really quite unhappy there for a number of reasons.
By contrast, Matt and his team at Shires are really friendly, helpful, flexible and professional.
The bikes are brand new lovely bikes, and they have one with a lowered seat, suitable for people like me who are only 5'4" which made a huge difference. They also tell you what gear you're in.
All my training was with Matt so there were no continuity issues. He is an excellent teacher and a very nice guy. As others have said, the helmets are fitted with the latest blue tooth 2-way communication - it works, and is very comforting have 2-way instead of only 1-way.
Their prices are also very competitive. Just passed my Mod 2 first time.
Choose Shires, you won't regret it.
Did my CBT today I was very apprehensive as I haven’t been on a motorcycle before and I am now 58. Mat soon put me at ease great teaching techniques made everything simple and easy to remember, more important he made it very enjoyable thanks Mat.
I've just passed my DAS full motorbike test with Shires. Matt and the whole team were absolutely brilliant. Made you feel very comfortable and explained everything in a straightforward way.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend to anyone. Now to get a bike!
I recently took my CBT with shires even when I was riddled with anxiety and discomfort considering my stress gets the better of me they made me feel so safe and assured. It was my first time even riding a bike/putting a helmet on, heck it was my first time really taking the leap in doing something like this.
I gotta say I can't be more happy with the instructors and service in getting my understanding of the bike down, heck even the positive reinforcement when I looked confident and collected was such a huge boost in my drive to do well and my happiness bloomed.
The guys were amazing I couldn't hope for a better bunch of lads, honestly treated me so well and gave me the best. anyone looking for a bike test should book with Shires I can't stress how lovely the whole experience was.
What a total pleasure to achieve my Full A licence from booking with Toni, to the instructors I had Matt and Pete, thanks to them I passed mod 1 and 2 first time, total pleasure, cant recommend enough. Don’t delay book with shires today. :)
so supportive, lots of useful advice, would highly recomend, if you need anything jo in the office is always there to help, thank you so much shires
Give really good honest advice, not used place yet , but will soon
Update : have completed CBD, very pleased with process and staff, who were very relaxed and patient
Only thing I would like is for Shires to have a motorbike suitable for very short people to do tests on.. But I guess this is not cost effective and or may not be required too often but then again this may be a big gap in the market which they could cease.. Being the best in area they could become 1st to offer shortie service! I could be the guinea pig.
Overall Shires is a very good professional organisation, with nice cheery people, I would not hesitate to recommend them to others. Well done Shires.
Can’t recommend Shires enough , both myself and my wife passed with flying colours, great experience throughout our training , first class service at each stage , if your dreaming of long Sunny rides on the bike of your dreams then start your dream and riding journey with the best there is 👍👍👍👍 Shires Motorcycle Training , Where dreams becomes reality 👍👍👍
really good training school, all was there too offer advise even after you've passed, always feel welcome to pop in for a cuppa and a chat. thanks
My life was made easier by all the office Staff in booking my Full DAS to gain my Category A Motorcycle licence and all training and personal needs were tailored and catered for to give me the best out of my training and prepare me for First Time passes on both Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests.
shires are a great motorcycle training company they go out there way to help you they are very polite and have alot of knowledge, would recommend shires 100%
Provided the perfect training course for me. Excellent instructor who made the whole process fun and informative. Highly recommended if your looking to get you motorcycle license.
