About Us

Our Training centre is fully committed to delivering the highest quality standard of training available in the UK. Led by Head Instructor Gordon Dick, we believe that learning is best completed in an appropriate environment.  We have created our menu of courses to allow learning during the best experiences of motorcycling.  Ultimately just because you are learning does not mean you cannot have an excellent experience. 

Our Facilities

Our training takes place in purpose-built, modern facilities, using dedicated training areas to make sure you’re learning in an environment that makes you feel safe and at ease. This far exceeds the minimum legal requirement, which often sees other training centres using car parks and school sports facilities where you may be interrupted by other road users.

We have cosy classrooms and modern break rooms where you can relax and enjoy a hot drink.

Our Instructors

The quality of training is defined first and foremost by the quality of the instructor. There are many schools out there, and lots are small operations set up by experienced riders. However, an experienced and capable rider does not necessarily make a good teacher.

All of our instructors must be highly qualified advanced riders as independent people, as well as Advanced Riding instructors, all on top of the mandatory DVSA basic ‘CBT or DAS instructor’ requirements.

With a passion to instruct and teach our Instructors are among the best professional trainers in the industry specialising in creating training experiences.  It is also critical that our Instructors have a passion for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles and enjoy all aspects of the motorcycle lifestyle. 

Our Tuition

You will never be more than 2 students to an instructor at any point in your training, to ensure you get as much individual tuition as possible. Many schools teach 4-6 students per instructor, only dropping to the legal requirement of 2:1 for assessments.

Instead, you’ll be paired with a rider of similar experience or skill level to yourself, and one of our great instructors. In addition to this, we do as much training on-bike as possible. This is to ensure that you get the opportunity to put into practice any theory being discussed, and build on this in a consistent and progressive way.

We believe that learning is best achieved by experiencing, this is created by our unique course structure that encompasses touring, travelling and mileage to create the learning opportunity.  If we are riding we're using routes that you'll love, enjoy and look forward to revisiting on your own.
