Dear Nick, Julian and Biketrain Wales team.

I am writing to thank you for all your time, patience and effort training me to complete my CBT and Direct Access motorcycle course which I’m thrilled to say I completed all aspects of my MOD1 and 2 on first attempts.

You made the experience fun, memorable and above all safe and I look forward to returning for further enhanced rider training in due course.

I would certainly recommend and endorse Biketrain Wales to anyone else who wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle.

Kindest Regards and Thanks Again.

Dr. Paul Gordon Smith – CBT & Direct Access

Email : Nick / Julian,

I just wanted to thank you for guiding me through all elements of the bike test. I had no experience of riding a motorbike on roads prior to signing up with Biketrain Wales so needed to complete the CBT then choose the access route which suited me best.

After a day spent completing the CBT I knew that Biktrain Wales was the right choice to take me through my DAS. The tuition for all elements of the test was excellent with a professional yet personable tuition being given by the instructors which made you feel at ease.

I would highly recommend Biketrain Wales for anyone looking to learn to ride a bike safely on the roads and obtain their bike license.

Thanks again for all your help.

James Gallimore – CBT & Direct Access

Just a quick note to thank you all at Bike Train Wales for getting me through the CBT, module 1 and module 2 test.

The intstruction from Nick, Julian and Carl was 1st class and I can’t say enough good things about them. I would highly recommend them if you looking to get the skills to pass.

By the way Julian, I should have taken the bet, I got 1 minor not the 3-4 you thought I might get!

Please feel free to post this on the website and thanks again

Adam Ellis – CBT & Direct Access

Just a quick mail to say why a great experience it was to do my CBT with BiketrainWales.
At 42 I felt quite daunted to go back to school but it became quickly apparent that my instructors Steve & Pat had no intention of treating me like a school kid and gave instruction that was perfectly paced and real world.

Steve’s input both on the yard and out on the road was easy to follow and helped me to grasp the life saving techniques that will hopefully keep me alive and enjoying my future in the bike world.

So glad I chose you guys !


Comments: Having done quite well at motorcross as a teenager 15-19 i thought it about time to make myself legal to ride on the road, i am now 44 years old. I looked on the internet for a respectable motorbike training center and biketrain wales popped up, I gave them a ring and spoke to Julian he told me what i need to do as i wanted to do the direct access course, so i booked my theroy test (passed first time)i then booked my CBT with BTW (passed first time) I then booked my DAS course with Nick, from BTW i did the back to back 2 day course and my bike test on the third day (Passed first time mod 1 & mod 2) i would just like to say a big thank you to everyone at biketrain Wales for all there help, especially to Tony for my(CBT) Steve for my(MOD 1) and to Nick & Julian for (MOD 2) the guys their will tell you it was down to us the rider but for me with out there Professional instruction and calming approach towards teaching (us the rider) i dont think i would have passed first time,the setup that they have at the training center is by far i would say one of best in Wales, they caterer for everything from scooter though 125cc to the 500cc and have all the kit you need to get you on the road, i would recommend Biketrain Wales to anyone thinking of doing their Bike test whatever the size of bike that you ride,BTW will get you through it, Once again Guy’s i would like to say a very big thank you from me.
