Over the moon!

I am a few weeks off my 66th birthday but felt like a 21 year old when I received the pass certificate. ART’s instructors gave me confidence in them and ultimately myself.

Stress free…

Huge thanks to all the guys at ART. You got me through my Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time. ART made the whole thing stress free and gave me lots of confidence. Big thanks to Darren he made the lessons fun and I learnt loads.

All first time passes…

These guys have got me from a complete starter to Mod 2 with all first time passes. Thanks to Kylie, Andy, Colin and Darren (in particular as you kept me believing and made me chuckle). As you can tell from these comments I definitely recommend ART. Thanks again team.

Would recommend them to anybody…

Passed my mod 1 and 2 first time with ART rider training. Zero minors on Mod 1 and only one minor on Mod 2 very happy and would recommend them to anybody whether it’s getting on a bike for the first time or looking to pass your full test.

What can I say …superb, superb, superb! I wish I could have turned back the clock and used these guys at the start for all my training – they would have deserved the money! I can safely say if anyone asks me where to train for bike riding I know where to send them.

Here at ART Rider Training we pride ourselves in the professional training we give to all our students.

All training schools differ in what they offer and you should think about which school to go with before you spend your hard earned money. 

What student to instructor ratio do you operate with?

ART have no more than 2 students to an instructor at any one time. One to one can also be provided. This ensures a better quality of instruction.

Are there any hidden costs that will be charged when I turn up for my training?

Simple answer - No! All of our prices and duration of training are clearly stated on our website detailing what is included. We do not charge any surprise fees for damage waivers, equipment hire or fuel. Always check costs involved such as course fees, re-test fees and any extra costs and duration of training provided. Some schools say ‘days’ but it is not possible to ride for a whole day non-stop!

What motorcycles are used for training?

We run a regularly maintained fleet of recent Suzuki SV650s for the full licence customers and Lexmoto scooters and motorcycles for the CBT customers. 

Do we have a good reputation?

Check out our reviews on our website Student Feedback, Google and Facebook to see what our students say about their time with us.
