"Karel and Howard have and obvious love of motorcycles. I found them both extremely approachable making me comfortable in asking questions and learning. I loved their common sense and hands on approach. I can't wait for the next one....THANK YOU"

Vanessa M - Waikato

""I did my first circuit course with ProRider as a learner and followed up with a second one on my Restricted. I am now on my Ducati and riding regularly with a group; and having fun with the people I met on the course. Great training, great contacts, great community". "

SuzyM, Auckland

"I learned more than I could have expected. I feel more prepared to be out on the road and highly recommend the Bronze course for all"

Maureen T - Auckland

"The people presenting the course where clearly knowlegdable and were well able to communicate that knowledge. Their enthusiasm and interest in the subject showed."

John C - Auckland

"Well worth the money I paid - I definitely got a wake up call with the carpark activities, one doesn't really appreciate how the skill level can slip over the years. (I last did rider training courses back in the early nineties and have ridden around 200.000 km since, this just goes to show that regular refreshers are necessary, particularly as one gets older!) "

Brian H - Waikato

"No matter how long you've been riding for or skill level ... you guys have simply proved it again ... one's never too old to learn. Thanks heaps for making this the most fun filled learning experience!"

Andre J. D, Auckland

"Really enjoyed our day at Pukekohe even though we had vastly different levels of riding experience. The coaches were friendly, supportive and really knew their "stuff". We know our bikes better and came away with areas of riding that we can work on, resulting in us being better and safer riders on the roads.

Lynlee & Peter B, Thames
