Had a great CBT with Wayne a couple of weeks ago..... forgot to post a review, sos Wayne. Total newbie novice to loving it in a day. New bike is ordered should be riding next week. Will definitely return to Riverview next year to have a crack at the full licence.

Done my CBT twice here & then my A2 big bike license. Wayne is an absolutely brilliant instructor, gives you confident whilst being honest and incredibly knowledgeable. I wouldn’t ever consider going elsewhere, he’s a top bloke, it’s a lovely location to learn to ride and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience - I passed within 5 days once I had completed my theory.

Just like to say a big thanks to Wayne and the team... What a great experience! I booked in for DAS over 3 days with then my Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests. You get a lot of practise for both Mod 1 and 2, and Wayne gives you the confidence you need to pass first time! I felt comfortable whilst I was there, I had a great laugh - I'm happy I chose to learn at Riverview! I would 100% recommend! Thanks again!!

I cannot recommend Riverview highly enough. I had a free assessment day and then completed a week of training which included MOD1 and MOD2 at the end of the week. Wayne and his staffs riding knowledge and extensive rider experience is clearly evident. They are encouraging, blunt and straight to the point. Each day felt like an extremely efficient learning curve. Riding mistakes are very quickly addressed, while good riding is equally acknowledged and built upon. I really felt like I learned a lot in a relatively short space of time. By the end of the week, I had a lot more confidence in my riding and safety awareness and was extremely pleased to pass both modules. It was a fun week! 10/10 would recommend to anyone for any level of rider training.

I started my bike licence this year with a different company that had an "offer" for £1000 to do lessons and mod 1 and 2, they sent me to different locations every time rather than the same place. Recommended by a friend for Riverview I called Wayne, who was fully booked for a long time but managed to give me a few hours as a taster session to what my skills are like, after my taster my mod 1 was booked, two weeks after then and then after my second attempt (put my foot down on the u turn attempt 1) I passed and had my mod 2 booked for the following day, I've passed both. Wayne and the team are a very professional group of rides and aspire people to ride, I am glad I was taught by him and his team and if anyone is thinking of doing there licence, Riverview aren't there to milk you for every penny, if you are ready for your tests, they will book you on them. Thanks again Wayne and the team. I highly recommend this training company and I will be recommending you to anyone who asks me the best place to do the training!

Had my CBT today. Wayne has a fantastic group of instructors who where very patient, thorough and knowledgeable. The venue was brilliant with its own training area out back and plenty of room to practice before heading out onto the road. Big thanks to Ed & Mark and a massive thanks to Emily who took myself and another gent out for our ride. Really enjoyed the day and would 100% recommend. Once again, thank you all.
Joval Augustine
I have passed my DAS test today. Wayne booked me for the mod 1 after a 3 hr training and mod2 after another 3 hr session. What a great instructor, who is not after your money and has a heart on what he does. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. All the very best mate.
blake Duddle
Can't recommend Wayne and the team enough just completed my DAS course completely tailored to me to fit in around working. Wayne is one of the best instructors I've met great to get on with and have a laugh with but straight talking will let you no where you're going wrong and talk you through how to improve. Thanks for everything guys hope to see you soon when I'm passing by 👍
Elliot Evans
Wayne and the team have been amazing and successfully guided me through my Mod 1 & 2. Unlike some schools offering set length DAS courses, Riverview tailored the number of sessions to my ability. This means you won't we turning up to a test you aren't prepared for, and conversely won't be wasting sessions when you're ready for your test.
Anthony Wood-Townend
Did my CBT & Full licence with Wayne. Great experience start to finish. No nonsense tutor & top fella, physically demonstrates how to sort out if your going wrong somewhere, which helps massively rather than just being told to "do this, do that!". Was recommended to use Riverview by a mate and wouldn't hesitate to to recommend to anyone, I trekked from Manchester & was well worth it! Nice one Wayne, hopefully catch you for a brew at some point when I'm next up that way. Take care👍🏻
Jon Ashby
Highly recommended, Wayne is a top notch instructor and fantastic at his job, the bikes he has are excellent aswell, prices are also fair I managed my CBT mod one and mod 2 all in a week. Thanks a lot Riverview 👌🏻
Matt Preston
Ive just completed my direct access training course with Wayne at Riverview. The whole experience was very professional, very informative and very pleasant. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and the bike i chose to ride. I PASSED!!! Get yourself booked in and get riding.
Alex Swindells
Did my CBT they explained everything, answered any questions I had and the whole experience was very enjoyable.
What can I say 5 days training and I am now a full licence holder for motorbike category and why is that? Because river view bike training is the best in business. Wayne the instructor and owner is top class instructing and will soon get you riding how you should be. I had a great week here really good fun and had a laugh with Wayne he makes the company. Brilliant. First time pass on both modules. Cheers Wayne!
Ollie Allsopp
Very nice people welcoming n great at what they do I would definitely recommend them 5 🌟 from me👍
Sound chap, very knowledgeable and straight to the point. Would highly recommend to anyone in the lancs are looking for bike training!
Darren G - Had a great experience with Riverview training and passing Mod1 +Mod2. Wayne is a good teacher who takes his time and walks you through each Mod before considering putting you in for the tests. Cheers Wayne

I have recently completed my CBT and DAS with Wayne and couldnt recommend a better instructor. 5*
Keyton Henry
Had 2 CBT’s and going through my A2 now, honestly these guys are amazing. Everyone is a good crack along side with top quality training. This is the place to go and I know I’ll be going back for sure to do my full licence in the future. I’d give more stars if I could!
Luke Davidson
Guys if you're thinking of starting riding look no further than Wayne and his team down at Riverview. If he can teach me he can teach anyone! down to earth, plenty banter, great teaching style and attention to detail. cant thank Wayne enough, passed my Mod 2 today and over the moon. first time! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Rhys Thomas
Passed my direct access with ease through the training i received here at river view. Wayne is a brilliant instructor with years of experience in the industry his training standard is second to none. I felt comfortable at all times under his guidance and he helped me better my riding to a point where i was confident to go ahead and take my test with no nerves and confidant in my capabilities. Thank you Wayne
Annie Fairclough
I completed my CBT here over two days which I'm so glad of because it really put my anxiety at ease & if anything, I actually feel like I learned more from it. Wayne has been nothing but patient & fully understanding towards my anxiety and has made me laugh so much I forgot it was there! I cannot wait to get out on my own bike and put the things I've learnt into practice on the road. Thank you so much Wayne 🏍
Awesome place to learn to ride. Staff are very friendly but also diligent in training. Would recommend, passed first time 👍
Colin Holmes
Excellent training no matter what your starting level. Having not ridden a motorcycle since my teens (40 years or so), I booked in for my CBT to start the process of gaining my full Direct Access (Cat A) Motorcycle licence. The Team were very patient, working hard to pass on their experience and knowledge at a pace suited to the individual. They guided me through the whole process to make me a confident and safe rider, which I feel I am now. I looked forward to my 50 mile round trip for my lessons/tests. Graham, Wayne and Jordan are great guys, very friendly and professional. I can highly recommend Riverview Motorcycle Training, don’t bother looking anywhere else! Thanks Guys – I’m now enjoying riding my Honda CBR650F with a full Cat A licence!
Sam Parr
Friendly and welcoming service throughout. Very patient intsructors and did an amazing to get me out on the road the first day of riding a bike. Brilliant progressive learning techniques and really helped to build my confidence. Can't wait to go back and do further courses with them.
Daniel Fazakerley
Never ridden a bike before and booked my Direct Access course as part of a deal with Blackpool Honda. Have to say the service and guidance from Wayne was top notch. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Passed both mods first time and been riding 6 months on my Honda Rebel 500.
Amy Davis
Couldn’t recommend this place enough. Went today for my cbt. Great guy and easy going. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing there bike test. Everything was at your own pace and made you feel very comfortable out on the bikes with the instructor.
Peter Duffy
Great experience with Riverview. Good value and they couldn't do enough for me, including ferrying bikes around to make sure that I didn't miss my Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests. V v professional and highly recommended.
Harrison Maxwell
One of the greatest experiences of my life, I have done my CBT with them and I came in with 0 experience on a bike and left confident and a bike fanatic. The guys were professional and a great laugh, they avoided using technical terminology unless it was necessary and when they did they thoroughly explained and ensured we were all confident with what we were told. The teaching was faultless and felt seamless, moving on at our own pace and ensuring we were happy with each manoeuvre and practice. When I asked if I could practice a few more times they didn't rush me or tell me I was fine, they just smiled and said off course I would rather you be confident and safe. My instructor as said was great to be around and had a exceptionally likeable personality, because of this and the standard of training they day flew by but I love every second of it- even if it was cold and raining! I would seriously recommend anyone interested in doing a CBT to come here; I cannot find a single thing wrong with the day and I feel you have got me hooked on bikes now for life! Thanks again guys :-D
Andrew Dunn
I found river view online and as it’s local to me I thought I’ll give it ago I’ve ridden motocross for years and I’ve always wanted a road bike from the first phone call I received a lot of free information then through the lessons up to doing my cbt and hopefully I’ll make it all the way to my full license (fingers crossed)this place is phenomenal I cannot express enough the quality of training the level of care and a truly enjoyable experience if you looking to do some training you cannot go wrong with river view
Sam Boyd
Brilliant environment to learn, no matter what experience you have. A friend and I (both completely new to riding) passed our Class A license here first time and would definitely recommend to anybody wanting to get into riding a motorcycle. Friendly, relaxed coaching style with plenty of practice space to learn. Top drawer!
