I highly recommend Off The Kerb. I did my full DAS course here and passed my Mod 2 a month ago. Dom was an excellent instructor! Thank you mate!
I cannot recommend this training school enough! I went from having rode a motorbike once to achieving my full licence with them. As a novice they suggested it was best that I took my CBT on an automatic and then complete the gear conversion course to give me maximum time on the road with an instructor which I think was a great idea. After completing this, I started my MOD 1&2 training which was very comprehensive and gave me all the confidence I needed to complete both exams. Peter, Richard and Dom are all incredibly knowledgable and each have their own way of putting you at ease on the bike whilst progressing your learning in a safe and positive way. I am very grateful for all their help, and getting me ready for the road!
Absolutely loved doing my CBT with Richard! It rained all day and he still managed to keep the group entertained with his incredible knowledge of basically everything! Fantastic skills and a very funny way of delivering what could be a long day.
Thanks so much!
Great place to do the training for your license. I had the 4 day DAS training booked and passed both MOD 1 and 2 first time. Both trainers I dealt with were fantastic, always quick to offer advice and answer any questions you have. Richard was especially hilarious and has a way of making you learn from your stupid mistakes while still making you laugh.
Really happy I chose this place to do my training.
Went from being a non rider never been on a motorbike to passing my full Cat A test within 3 weeks and scored zero minors on my mod 2 test thanks to the guys here. During my time I had Pete with my CBT and Dom and Rich for my DAS course. Each day was informative, fun and relaxed. You get what you want out of it. They cover all the essentials but if you ask more questions they have all the answers.
Rich has a wonderful way of calming the nerves through his driving historical tours of the localities and it was super appreciated.
Good motorcycle instructors in London are hard to come by, trust me. Luckily Off the Kerb has three, so big shout out to Richard, Dom and Adam for all your support during my CBT and DAS. Passed my Mod 1 and 2 first time. Forever grateful to Off the Kerb and their top team!
Brilliant day doing the CBT training with Richard, he made what could have been incredibly dry and boring material quite fun. I would happily recommend Off The Kerb
Absolutely brilliant experience with the Off the curb guys. Fantastic instructors, friendly atmosphere, just pure joy. The instructors were very professional, punctual, and approachable. I would also like to say that Richard is a walking encyclopaedia and if I ever decide to go on ' Who wants to be a millionaire ' , he will be a friend who I would ring. 😃
I will definitely book my DAS as I don't want to ride around with a "Loser" sticker on my scooter. Let's just hope that they have available slots in the near future.
Off the Kerb (White City) were fantastic and I would strongly recommend them for doing motorcycle tests/training. I went from never having ridden a motorbike to first time passes on the CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 in 3.5/4 days. The courses were cheaper than others I looked at and easier to book onto.
The courses themselves were great with riders only progressing when they are ready and confident.
All the instructors are very approachable and great at providing advice and tips on how to improve. Richard in particular was fantastic and he has very helpful across the 4 days. His pub quiz knowledge is also an added bonus that kept the days entertaining.
Many Thanks to the whole team.
Awesome! If you live anywhere west of Trafalgar Square this is the school to go to. Richard and Adam were a great team of instructors.
I've just completed my CBT and it was a great day. The time just flew by which is usually a good sign.
Not only was Richard a great and patient instructor but he was also interesting, entertaining and enlightening. Do a CBT with Richard Beardwell and you'll see what I mean.
I had a great experience at the CBT course. The instructors were well organised, professional and encouraging. They provided personalised feedback throughout the day, helping me make the right adjustments to gain more confidence and skills. I particularly appreciated the strong emphasis on safety.
Very good service. The instructors make you comfortable during the training (no stress). They also teach you about general interesting topics. They are both professional and friendly. It's an excellent company. Thank you very much.
Great place to learn and pass Mods 1 and 2. Dom and Rich are terrific instructors. Highly knowledgeable and experienced, particular regarding the Uxbridge area where the testing is centred. Very enjoyable process too. Thanks!
Couldn’t recommend this company highly enough, had the pleasure of doing my A class licence with them. Dom was super friendly and helpful.
Best Place to do your CBT,
very professional and helpful.
I really recommend it
Tourist Channel A.S.
Absolutely wonderful!!! Even tho it was raining all day everything went well. Richard was the best instructor ever!!! God bless you and many thanks to the whole team! 🙏❤️ Al
These guys are absolutely brilliant. I was super nervous at the start of the day but they really helped put me at ease. I wasn't quite ready for the road on my first go but I'll definitely be coming back.
Absolutely incredible!👌 don’t hesitate to book with off the kerb. Richard and Adam are the best, not only in knowledge but also in their training techniques. My first time riding on the road and thanks to these guys i had the best and safest day possible 😊
If you are thinking of learning to ride a motorcycle look no further. Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. The whole team are brilliant, friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and will helped me get my CBT through to passing my MOD2. Can't recommend them highly enough!
would like to complain about instructor
He is very bad in his work...he all the time at and use bad as well...we are paying you for teach us but he can't undestand this things
When i told him that my which he gave me its ..the answer he gave me that I dont care do whatever you want to do with this otherwise go home...its not good to tolarate like this kind of guy....
I never want to take this kind of training.
Very rude and disgustin is....
Very detailed and full of info if you wanna learn how to ride a bike and get a taste of the street bike life.
They're so good guys that this my second time and I'll be doing das with them if they offer it indeed, they understand you well and deliver what you should know well and smoothly. Good onya guys
Fantastic! Just passed my category A license under the instruction of Dom and Richard. Brilliant instructors that taught me everything I needed to know to ride safely and pass my test. Couldn’t have done it first time without them. Now to buy the bike!
A big thank you to Adam, Dom and Richard!! I passed Mod1 and Mod2 with flying colours, they were very thorough and professional. I learnt everything I needed to know, including an on the road lesson in history from Richard! Cheers lads!
The man Richard is the best instructor I have ever seen. I enjoyed working with him
Avoid at all cost , they don't have an office at shepherds Bush like they pretending so be warned as they working only online to take your booking or on the phone and once they take the money there is no arrangements , and if you arrive 5 minutes late they won't let you in "the army reserve centre" they using as it's not a which proper office difficult to get in touch when you get there specially if you don't know the area pretending that you are late , very rude instructors , very poor customer service , specially the lady that unswers the phone.
The Rocket 147
One of the best Motorcycle CBT training in London. Very polite respectful instructers who really cares about bike riders health and safety. Guys if you are looking for a place to learn how to ride a bike or a scooter then I can assure you that this place is the one.thanks very much. 9/7/2020
Just did my CBT and what a great experience.
Knowledgeable staff (Cheers Dom and Adam) and good environment. Highly recommend
Finding it really impossible to make contact with anyone from Off the Kerb even though they are 'open' today. They're not there as I went to the site, not answering the phone lines and even their email contact set up didn't work from the website. Really disappointed with the lack of contact for people who had booked tests. How am I supposed to get in touch? A good company let down by really poor communications.
Passed my MOD 1 today. Only been on a bike 3 days. Dom was a fantastic instructor I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. The company more widely is also great, they are always happy to talk on the phone to make arrangements to work around you. I personally couldn’t have asked for more. Bring on the MOD 2. Thanks guys.
I've just finished my Full Bike License saga. I'm very grateful to the instructors. I was always amazed by their ability to recall during the debrief all the details of the prior ride and provide specific advice to the person.
They create a pleasant learning environment and let you enjoy your ride.
Amazing team ... very helpful... Adam is a great instructor ..highly recommend these guys
Best motorcycle instructors I have ever seen. They will fulfil you with tons of good knowledge to pass your exam and ride safely after that. I completely recommend them as your way to go into this world of bikes.
Born To Help
YOU WANT TO PASS GO TO THIS PLACE YOU WILL PASS 100 % EVEN IF YOU NEVER RIDDEN A MOTOR BIKE .
I want to highly recommend THIS CENTRE ! 7 OUT OF 7 PEOPLE WE PASSED IN ONE DAY ! IN THE OTHER 2 CENTRES WHERE I TRIED TO PASS AND I WENT TO I HAD ISSUES WITH HEARING THE DIRECTIONS ON THE HEADPHONE IN THE HELMET, AND GUES WHAT , OF THE KERB HAVE THE BEST COMUNICATING DEVICE IN LONDON. And No ONE WILL SHOUT TO YOU THOSE GUYS ARE IN FULLY PEACE, . And THE BIKES ARE GREAT! AND THERE IS NO ANY PLACE EASIER TO RIDE THAN WHITE SITY .
Would highly recommend. I’ve sent my brother and 2 of my friends to this test school for their tests. The instructors are the best in London, they really take time to improve your skills and make sure you are confident and safe on the road. I did my CBT with Adam and thought he was very attentive and professional, he really prepared me for the full license. Great motorbikes if you’re looking to do you’re full license, Suzuki SV was just a dream to ride. MOD 1 and MOD 2 with Dom, who was just the best. He went out of his way to make sure that I was 100% comfortable and confident with all parts of the tests, made me practice until every move was perfect and was really supportive when I got very stressed and nervous prior to my tests, putting me at ease and giving me the confidence to pass both tests on the first go. I’m now fully licensed and can’t wait to get my first big bike! Thanks guys (also Stevie and John) for giving me the best experience I could have wished for!
Great bunch of guys! Friendly and knowledgable. Helped me not only pass the test, but more importantly be safe and confident rider!
I am very disappointed with the manner in which the CBT training was taught by this company.
I had no prior experience of riding a bike and had prior to booking the course spoken to a person at length in their ‘office’ about the course and whether I should do a geared or non geared course and the fact I had never ridden a bike before.
Following our discussions I decided on a geared course as I eventually want to get a full bike license
On the day there were 4 people training for the CBT and I was the only one learning on a geared bike
At lunch time the instructor Adam said I was not good enough and he would not proceed with me any further.
The manner in which the course was conducted did not give me an opportunity to learn or practice my bike driving and in fact it has affected my confidence and I am extremely disappointed with this company.
I honestly did not really get much confidence at all.
I feel very very disappointed at the fact I was given very limited time to learn and the manner in which the course was taught and structured and did not allow me a reasonable period of time to learn.
I would not recommend this company at all and I would avoid Adam if he is your instructor.
I sent an email to them about two weeks ago and they still have not responded!!! That’s the level of service and customer care you get!!!
Be warned!! Go elsewhere!!!
What to say, could I have a better experience somewhere else? I really doubt it!! Done here CBT and both mod for the A license. Really competent and friendly staff, John and Steve are just fantastic 🥰
Overall very unhappy with the experience. The instructors are great, it's the "office" that I'm unhappy with. Did my CBT here in April 2017 so it was due to run out in April 2019. I didn't want to have to do it again so I went back in March to try and get my license before it ran out. Paid for the whole thing in advance, which is very overpriced btw but it was a convenient location for me so I did it anyway. Was due to have my mod1 on the afternoon of my second day of training but it was cancelled by the test centre. The office said that this was out of their hands so I'd have to pay for another day of training (something in the region of £200). I neither had the time nor the money to do this and certainly no forewarning that this was a possibility. Already very unhappy but not the reason for the bad review. By this point, another day of training would take me past the expiry date for my CBT, so the office said they would write me a new one if I were to continue with the training. In fact, I was given this assurance even prior to booking - that if they can't schedule everything before the expiry date, they would write me a new one.
Due to lack of time and money, I was erring towards just asking for a refund for my final day, getting a new CBT certificate and moving on. However at this point, they changed their tune and said that if I didn't book another day and continue with the training, they would not write me another CBT despite the fact that I had already done 2 days of training with them (a day of training is basically equivalent to the CBT). To me, this makes absolutely no sense, and I expressed this to Peter who works at the office. The only motivation here is to squeeze more money out of you. I decided I didn't want to deal with these people anymore and got a refund for my final day of training. Would never go back or recommend to anyone as a result of this experience. I am still owed a CBT.
John, Steve , Jamie Dom and all the instructors thank you for the wonderful experience.
Professional, friendly and supportive. Passed the exam because of your training today.
Highly recommended - highly professional👍🏻👍🏻
Had a great time with these guys, completing both my CBT and full licence. Would recommend to anyone. John in particular was a fantastic instructor with bags of experience and knowledge to share
I can highly recommend taking your license with Off the Kerb . The entire team are very proff and the practical learning mixed with theory is great . A special thanks to Dom,Steve,John great instructors made it possible for me to take my DAS in only 5 weeks. they deserve a pay raise .
I passed my MOD 2 yesterday and would highly recommend Off The Kerb for anyone considering CBT or DAS. John, Steve and Dom are each great instructors who approach their teaching with an impressive level of patience and expertise with a view not just to having you pass the tests but to make you confident and accomplished riders. As Steve said to me just before my mod 2 "we want to get you to 110% so that you have room to breathe come the tests". Lovely guys to boot. Thanks team!

Passed mod 1 and mod 2 first time in less than a week. Thanks to John, Steve and Dom. Great guys and really do give you all the support you need. Best school in London. Keep up the good work!
I took my CBT back in July with John and Adam. They were very patient and really care about getting you riding safely on the road. I had only ridden scooters abroad and had little experience, but they were very thorough and helped in building my confidence on the bike.
I always wanted to go for my full license and Tania in the office was beyond helpful. Helping me to book in my 3 lessons and Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests. I think I asked her a million and 1 questions and she took the time to go through everything with me.
I had my lessons with John, Steve and Dom and they were absolutely fantastic. Between them they have so much knowledge and experience. They were super patient, and great teachers. I passed both my Module 1 and Module 2 first time, and this was definitely down to the training I had with them.
Cannot reccomend this school enough....if you want first class training, look no further!
Thanks again guys!
The team at Off The Kerb are superb. Got me from a CBT to holding my DAS license in 6 weeks. Was always fun to learn from the whole team and the knowledge they hold is second to non. I was recommended them by a college and I will definitely be recommending them to anyone else. Keep up the great work guys.
Safe riding 💪
Dave and Adam are great teachers. Right mixture of safe fun and a lot of knowledge. They give you best tips of you're completely new to the bike thing. I was riding a motorcycle after a few hours with no previous bike experience! Thanks guys!

I really want to thank the whole Off the Kerb team for all the support and professionalism!
The night before my CBT training, I suffered a small rib injury and wasn't sure I could make it. Therefore, I reached out on Facebook to know if there would be a possibility to reschedule - Fred kindly (and very quickly) got back to me with solutions for my situation.
The next day, I was feeling a little better so I decided to take some pain killers and go to the training anyways - it was definitely worth it! I received a friendly welcome from Adam and Dave and had a really amazing day. They were both very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to pass on their knowledge in a clear and fun manner.
I also would like to give a special thank you to Adam (who took me on the road) for his patience and attention - I was a little nervous out there and he knew exactly how to guide me and make me feel at ease.
I really look forward to coming back for a full license! :)
I would not recommend this school at all. Save your money and go to a different school. I had a very bad experience with this training school. Trainer was very rude and unprofessional. I had previously driven bike for many years and have full Car UK license for 6 years. In the morning Trainer David was teaching us but when Adam took over it was a disaster.
First he was driving without helmet and drove bike without sitting on the seat. He said in the morning that he will not take me on the road with out even seen my skills. Basically made up his mind by look at my face. And in the evening that's what he did around 13:30. He said I will not take you on the road and I said why is that. I just don't want to take you. I said I want to complain and he shouted," Go on and complain to the office". Attitude was so rude and arrogant like he is the GOD. As a trainer its his duty of care to explain what is the issue.
When I spoke to trainer David then Mr Adam started making different excuses . There is no check and balance on this trainers.
There should be some kind of control and checks on how these kind of rude and arrogant trainer like Adam is working in this industry. This school should be monitored because how they run these sessions. first of all They are using old and faulty bikes. Ripping innocent drivers from there hard earned money. They choose who they like to get on and get rid of people who they don't like.
I passed my unrestricted Mod 1 & 2 test with Off the Kerb over the past few weeks and have to thank the team, especially John who was my instructor throughout, for their positive advice, expertise and support. A faultless and fun crew!
Completed Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests with these guys and couldn’t fault the training or experience. I was trained by Steve, Dom and John who understood where my riding was at very quickly and worked with me directly to refine my approach to the road and the examinations. Their experience was evident and I couldn’t have felt more prepared before each module. Thanks chaps, felt great binning the L plates. James
Steve at ‘Off The Kerb Motorcycle Training’, kept me relaxed me with his calm manner and good humour. I was really worried about learning on a manual for the first time, but all their stage-by-stage steps helped me gain confidence by the afternoon. Got my certificate with their support. 5 out of 5 for great service, patience and professionalism!
I have just passed my A2 Motorbike test today and I would highly recommend everyone to book with this training centre as they have provided me with excellent support and training.
Instructors were really informative and gave me honest feedback whilst on and off road. Can't thank them enough!
The site is safe and sufficient for CBT and part of the Mod-1 training. Instructors are experienced, excellent and helpful. You will feel confident to ride out with them, even at 70mph on A40. Supporting staff are also good too and can quickly rearrange your next test if you failed. Practical and no nonsense school, highly recommended.
Did my CBT and my unrestricted Mod 1 and Mod 2 (twice!) tests with these guys. They are friendly, supportive, down to earth and all round great teachers. They teach you to ride and not just pass the test. Particular thanks to Dom for helping me through passing all of the stages! I’d strongly recommend Off the Kerb to anyone!
I've done my CBT, mod 1 & 2 for a A2 license and mod 1 & 2 for my A licence. I've dealt with all the instructors and they are the nicest bunch of bikers you will ever meet. It went from learning, to a nice day riding! would recommend Off The Kerb to everyone!
I had an absolute blast in this school, the team is very supportive and the instructors great. If you're about to take your licence, then look no further and go off the kerb !!
I really wouldn't recommend Off The Kerb to do your CBT training course. I was a first time rider and I found the instructor to lack empathy and unable (or unwilling) to effectively support me in learning how to ride a motorcycle. Since my awful experience here I have successfully completed my CBT elsewhere and had the pleasure of being instructed by thoughtful and effective trainers. If you'd like to learn how to ride a motorcycle do it somewhere else and definitely avoid this place!

Just passed my mod 2 test! Have had a fantastic experience with the off the kerb team. Big thank you to Dom for taking me from new rider to license holder
I quite enjoyed my training with John and Craig for both CBT and DAS. I was, however, outright appalled with the tone of an email exchange I had with Peter regarding a difficult situation I had with my booking.
I had a late cancellation in December for my Module 2, as I woke up very badly sick on the day of my test. All of my requests to offset at least part of the cost against a rebooking were refused. E.g. the school decided not only to keep the DVSA test fees and some other costs they would inevitably incur but the whole price of the motorcycle day including the profit margin, plus charge me another £210 for a rebooking.
When I asked again while trying to rebook my test, I was offered a 'goodwill gesture' discount of ~3% of the total amount I would have paid to Off The Kerb to date. When I followed up with a justification why I don't find such a discount sensible, I have received a rude and sarcastic response from Peter.
I have never experienced sarcasm coming from a representative of an institution before, and find it exceptionally unprofessional. Sadly, my experience with OTK instructors will have a bad aftertaste because of Peter's attitude.
Great place to complete your CBT. Craig was an excellent instructor who provided lots of valuable tips and hints to feel safe on the road. It was great value for money and the groups are small so there is plenty of time to receive personalised feedback on your performance. I would highly recommend this company and can't wait to purchase a scooter and get out on the road!
Passed my tests first time thanks to these guys. They are very good and friendly, serious about teaching and they would make sure to cover all the aspects of learning which is required. Made me more confident on the bike. Definitely recommend!
Just completed my full unrestricted motorbike licence at Off the Kerb. Thoroughly enjoyed it and staff were friendly, helpful and knew their stuff. Would definetley recommend them for all
Motor bike related courses in the future. Thanks guys for all your help and making sure I passed first time.
Definitely the best people for professional bike training and yet a fun bunch of individuals with their hearts in the game. High standards, never a dull moment either. Even when I kept kicking over their Lucozade bottle..
My experiences have been very positive as I had full of skilful practices and theoretical info on the day! There is no doubt that I have invaluable knowledge and gained great confidence being on the road after my training!.. Many thanks Craig, for your encouragement and tirelessly being supportive throughout..
Very pleasant and successful experience. Friendly, competent instructors and helpful back office when I had to change my MOD2 test date last minute. Real service mentality compared to some conveyor belt riding schools. Brilliant preparation for the test in the test area plus several mock tests - very professional. Passed my test straight away - highly recommended!
Great service and good value for money experience. Being a rider returning to getting on a bike this was a great learning experience. Highly recommended
The gent instructing the course was more than helpful and insightful as to how to ride. Being out on the road for the first time was a completely comfortable and enjoyable experience because I knew the instructor was always giving us advice. Hope to see them again soon for my DAS
I have taken my A1 licence with off the kerb and I must say that all the lessons and exams were dealt very professionally. The instructors are really professional, polite and prepared. Very satisfied.
I passed my CBT training course with Off the Kerb two days ago and I have to say, I did NOT enjoy the whole experience at all.
- Bikes are very old;
- Reflective vest and gloves are so smelly and wet and I felt so sick;
- My instructor Steve used F word too often and were not very patient. In addition, some naughty jokes were not really suitable in this teaching environment.
-For other courses such as gear changing course you have to book at least 3 weeks in advance.
Today, I attended another training school in Battersea Park for gear changing course. Bikes are very new, clothes & vests are dry and clean. Most important is that the instructor was very encouraging, patient and never scolded me once. And I felt great and confident after the training.
I will definitely Not return to Off the Kerb for full access course. There are better options!
I did my CBT training with Off the Kerb at the start of the year and was really happy with the instructors so came back to do the A license training. All the instructors I had (Craig, Steve, Jon, Dom) were patient and relaxed throughout all the days of training and went over everything needed to pass both the MOD 1 and MOD 2 exams enough times for it to become second nature. They were supportive and helpful throughout and provided riding tips from their wealth of experience. Thank you all for your help and guidance, allowing me to pass first time!
Fantastic experience over all 5 days of the full course. Friendly and knowledgeable instructors who are all keen to ensure you ride smartly and safely not just for the test but forever after. Nice bikes and location. Would 100% recommend for other budding riders out there!
Good trainers, Dom and Steve, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Learned a lot on site so happy and confident when did the road 'test'. Got a lot of good pointers constructive criticism and good advice on road test too. The guys must have done this hundreds of times so I was v impressed by their attention to detail and patience. Will definitely return to get full licence in the future. Recommended.
All trainers are fully committed to give you the best training possible and not only get you on the shortest route to a successful test, but also keep you safe on the road. Great experience. Would recommend this school to everyone.
Great team of instructors! All have different approach but they are all complementing each other. it was an absolute pleasure to train with them and ride around the city. All large 750 Bikes are in very good condition. I passed my DAS module 1 and 2 on the first attempt. Thank you guys!
