Recently done my CBT and direct access course through Easy Rider, everything passed first time. The training was very professional and the facilities top notch. They even loaned me all required riding gear for the training as I had none of my own. Whilst I was training for my DAS an examiner's son (just turned 17) was going through his training there, that's got to be a good sign. For CBT they supplied me with a CB125 and the training started off around their compound where there is plenty of room to practice everything you need off the highway (not all training centres have this). Once they are happy with progress they take you on the road with 2 to 1 instruction for the rest of the day. For DAS they supplied me with a CB500 and 2-1 instruction (although I was lucky and got 1-1 instruction). For the first day, training started off in their compound to practice the low speed manoeuvres and e-stop etc for the Mod 1 test (again, not all schools have the space for this). If progress is good then you may go out on the road in the afternoon for about an hours 'shakedown'. Day 2: Start with a quick recap of all the mod 1 manoeuvres and then go out to ride out around Derbyshire and visit the test centre. We also went to a cafe for some lunch/breakfast. I believe I rode around 100-120 miles this day. Training on the road is very good, teaching you to a much higher standard than required to pass the test, for example they teach more advanced road positioning then required. Day 3 (Mod 1 test day): Ride to a car park near to test centre, recap manoeuvres and then ride to the test centre. Up to you from here.. If Mod 1 is passed they will book your Mod 2 test for within a week or two. Day 4 (mod 2 test day): Training as you're on the way to the test centre (by an elongated route). Again, up to you from here.. Overall very happy with my training, and will be returning to do one of their advanced courses once I've got a bike and been riding for a month or two.

I passed my test with this company and can honestly say that I received some of the best advise ever relating to my safety, and the safety of others on the road. The training facilities are superb with one of the largest areas I've ever seen available to practice on before you go out on the road. Nothing is rushed and all abilities are catered for sympathetically. You are made to feel special and wanted, not 'just another punter who we can make money out of' syndrome. I still ride using the advice I was given (which also related to looking after my bike and not just the riding stuff. Theory input is good aswell and discusses the legal and necessities of decent protective equipment and other practical implications of riding on the road such as road surface, weather conditions, etc etc. Mum's and Dad's - if you are going to treat your loved ones to a comprehensive CBT - taqke them to Easy Rider. You will be hard pushed to find another bike school like this one.
