"This was a fantastic course - I had learnt more in one day that I have from all of my riding. It showed me how to mitigate and minimise risks when riding."

Bob N - Auckland

"Did the Bronze course. What a brilliant day!! Instructor used ear pieces to talk us through stages and give us tips as we rode. He also video'd us on different stretches of road looking at different skills. When we stopped he talked us through what we were doing. FANTASTIC!! If you're trying to decide whether or not to take advantage of the subsidy, I say DON'T WAIT."

Ellete P, Auckland

"One of the best and most useful courses I have been to since getting on the bike. Awesome Instructors - the information was clear and precise, its all on to us know to digest that and put into practice to become safe riders and most of all enjoy riding."

Ron M - 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

"Pro Rider courses are a must for me, at least a couple per year to help keep me sharp and make me aware of any sloppy habits I might be developing. I find the course contents and the instructors very helpful to me as an older,'born-again' rider. "

Andrew L - Thames

"Thank you so much for a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was awesome to be reminded about things I should be doing on the road but I had become relaxed about doing, so all in all it was a fantastic day. "

Kerry L, Auckland

"Every rider should do a refresher every now & than, to continue to improve their skills and ride to survive."

Tom Z - Auckland
