  • Did my CBT today..this was the 3rd CBT I've done. Without a doubt the most comprehensive and professional CBT I've done. Looking forward to doing my full licence with Premier Bike. Thanks all

Gene G, May 2015

 

  • The service and training at Premier is second to none! The whole team are friendly, funny but most importantly, massively knowledgeable in bikes and road safety. I did a CBT 15 years ago elsewhere and it was nowhere near on par with what Premier deliver. It was fun, very informative.... At the end of the session I felt more confident to get out on my own bike.. I will be recommending Premier Bike Training to anyone who asks about CBT because no corners are cut and they really do go the extra mile! Thanks so much! Start to finish the best level of customer service and customer experience available!

Graham R, May 2015

Premier Bike's Training has been excellent. From the very start Paul's instruction was great and gave me a confidence on the bike that only improved wtih each lesson. Thanks again Paul and Premier Bike Training- from a very happy customer, who would gladly recommend you to anyone wanting to get on two wheels.

Jona F, May 2015

 

  • Had a brilliant time doing my CBT...even if the weather was naff! Couldn't have asked for more patient instructors. You will be highly recommended and I'm looking forward to sticking with you guys for the full test.

Gill M, April 2015

 

  • Wonderful day, cbt completed, highly recommend Premier training.

Beverley C, April 2015

 

  • I'd like to say a big thanks to the whole team here at Premier. You've taken me from my CBT right through to my Mod2 and have been professional throughout.  I did not actually realise until after I got out with the boys but you actually go above and beyond with the training, making sure each section is totally understood before moving on, and including more than you actually need to know. Paul saw my concern at a particular section and took the time after my lesson to stand and chat about it until I was comfortable. From what I hear of other peoples' experience from other tuition, it was more of a 'that's how it's done, just do it attitude". I've actually taught the guys a thing or two over the last 2 days. Thank you again! See you at the egg run (I'll be the one still doing head checks every 40 yards)

Christopher D, March 2015

  • First time rider of anything with a motor AND gears. And at the end of the day I was happy enough to pick up ny bike that very same day. The patience, expertise and all round awesomeness of the staff is way beyond what you'd expect from any mortal being. I stalled over and over and over again when we were doing our stop start and it was really frustrating me, but I was helped through it all and now I'm a rider! I reccomend to anyone. Literally, anyone and everyone who is even just thinking of getting a CBT, do it here.
