"I am feeling a lot more confident knowing I am taking the correct and safest line and have increased my cornering skills confidence hugely"

Gary A - Auckland

"Excellent friendly and approachable instructors, could not ask for better. I feel a lot safer on my bike after this course."

Chris B - Auckland

"Great course (Bronze), helped me feel more confident going into my CBTA assessment, and pass my restricted licence. Incredible value for $20."

Rob B - Auckland

"I would highly recommend anyone learning to ride do the bronze course, the knowledge gained over the day has proved invaluable."

Caroline O - Auckland

"As a returning rider after 30 yrs couldn't recommend this highly enough. Road craft, interpreting signs and riding the right lines makes it sooo much more enjoyable and safer"

Gary M - Auckland

"I hadn't ridden a bike for over 14 years and felt extremely nervous and tense, especially riding in traffic and slow riding. I found I wasn't confident in balancing or control anymore. This course helped me remember what used to be automatic, and the amazing tips and instruction from our leader has made so much difference to how I am riding now that I am starting to relax more and enjoy myself. Highly recommend anyone doing this course."

Trish H

"This should be compulsory for all. ACC funded the day, 8 hours for $20 great value. If you have not taken the course you should."
