Just completed my Direct Access with Alex and he was fantastic, I went from a super nervous newbie dropping the bike all over the place to very comfortably passing. It's not just the techincal side of instructing that is amazing, Alex also has a great understanding of psycology and mental blocks for tests. If you have any sort of issues ie you work odd hours. he can come up with a tailor made course just for you. Also had some great laughs along the way, I would highly recommend these guys for any motorcycle training needs.

Completed my cbt with Paul, what a brilliant experience. Very patient and knowledgeable trainer, really helped explain things thoroughly and felt totally safe out on the roads. Paul made the day so relaxed and easy going it was exactly the right tone to get the best from everyone. I cannot recommend more highly, thank you so much.

Passed my cbt recently with Paul. Lots of learning and laughs on the day, thanks Paul. Such a safe, relaxed and enjoyable environment to learn in and loads of great tips. I will be back for my DAS. Cannot recommend Direct Rider Training highly enough. Paul is very patient and knowledgeable.

Yay I've passed Mod 1 and Mod 2. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor than Alex. I have quite a few medical conditions. Alex was aware of this, and what made it even better is that he understood. He knew when it was getting to much for me, and when I needed to stop. Alex is a great bloke, kind, caring and a good laugh.

Cannot recommend Direct Rider Training enough. Alex is incredibly experienced and will ensure you are road ready, not just pass ready. I'm going to miss my lessons but the time spent with Alex meant I passed first time. Thanks again.

Alex was a great instructor, patient and encouraging. My son thoroughly enjoyed his experience and now feels confident to go out on his own.
I am an older cbt trainee for insurance requirements and have not riden a bike since 1977. Boy am I glad I took the cbt with these guys! At 63 years old I needed to relearn the skills and I could not be in better hands. The skills training is modular from real basics and the progression to eventually go live on road is perfect. Recommended.
Alex is a top instructor. Patient, constructive and willing to help wherever needed. 5☆ service.

I had booked a cbt with them right after i passed my theory. They couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. I did my cbt with Adam who was an amazing teacher that was calm and patient. He made sure that not only was he satisfied that I was safe on the bike but that I felt safe and confident on the bike and when you have never touched a motorcycle before was really reassuring. I cannot recommend this company enough, I will be sure to go to them for all my future motorcycle training in the future!

I cannot recommend Direct Rider Training enough! Alex is such a nice guy and a fantastic trainer, he stays calm and explains why you do what you need to go. He goes above and beyond in the training, not only teaching you how to pass your test but also how to be a safe rider when out in the real world. I would suggest Alex and Direct Rider Training to anyone I know who is considering getting their motorbike license.

Completed my DAS with Alex, he’s a fantastic instructor. He’s very patient, his tone never changes and he teaches you to ride to a very high standard, higher than required to pass a test, which as an inexperienced rider is 100% necessary and comforting! Highly, highly recommend you use Alex if you’d like to learn to ride a bike! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
