From first contact with Sally through the entire training and tests I found everyone helpful and professional. Matt on CBT training was excellent and pushed me to perfect things even though I could do them, this helped massively with mod1. Mark was exceptional with his feedback always constructive and to the point. Will and Sue only had both for mod 2 test days, but they again gave constructive advice, even after returning from mod 2 test Sue took the time to advise on where to build confidence up with groups etc and security of the bike.

I did my CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 with Kickstart. I cannot thank Sally, Peter, Guy and Mark enough. If you are in any doubt about which motorcycle training company to pick, this is the one. Friendly, supportive encouraging and fun people to train with and most importantly professional. I will be returning for enhanced training with Rich as soon as i have some more miles under my belt.

It's been 38 yrs since I rode a motorbike and was nervous at the start of the day, but our instructor Richard had me riding a 600 cc bike by the end of the day. Wow what a day, and what a buzz and what a great guy he was. No pressure at all, it seemed like only yesterday I was riding bikes. Just hope I can pass the rest of the course.

This was my second CBT with Kickstart. We had Ros and Will in the morning for safety and manoeuvres then Pete in the afternoon for the two hour ride. As always a professional and enjoyable course. Well done Kickstart.

The service you receive from Kickstart is totally amazing, nothing is too much trouble, the instructors have the the utmost patience and are really knowledgeable, I took my CBT last July after not riding a bike for 30 years, I was really nervous and had convinced myself that I just wasn't cut out to ride a bike, however after a short while Richard the instructor had instilled so much confidence in me that not only did I feel confident most importantly I felt safe. I bought my Bullit 125 motorcycle from them and Sally in the office arranged everything for me to picking up the motorcycle with 100% customer service and now am back again to do my full motorcycle training and license. I can not recommend this training centre enough, its more like a family environment than a business and you are made to feel like a real person and not just a number or a £ sign.

I contacted Kickstart having had no bike experience at all.. Never owned or ridden a bike with gears. And within a month of my CBT date I was a full license holder. The guys here are professional and confident and it definitely rubs off on interested and keen students, as I was. They went above the beyond to see me through the process and were quick to rectify issues with my riding as soon as they came apparent with easy to use tips. The bikes were in great condition and although some other schools may boast they have "better" facilities, Kickstart have everything you will need to become a safe and confident rider and that in turn will get you through the exam modules. Cheers guys for all your effort. It's very much appreciated.

Training is all about confidence and competence and this enthusiastic and professional team will give you both. Their approach is friendly and challenging. They all really want you do well. Don't come here if you want frills and bling, come here if you want to become a bike rider. Absolutely brilliant. Happy 20th birthday.

Took my CBT yesterday in Clevedon and just want to say a big thank you to the instructor (R J Howes). He was excellent. Just made you feel calm and relaxed. Absolute diamond of a bloke. I passed my CBT and will be booking in the new year for rest of my bike courses. If any of you are looking to do a bike course I recommend this company.

I found the whole experience to be professional and friendly. From the initial call to Will and Sally to set up the booking for a CBT day, to the full day of training, firstly off road in the school grounds with Roz and Mark, to the very enjoyable and informative road test with Will. I would recommend this team to anyone thinking of taking motorbike/scooter training. See you soon for the next stage. Alan

Outstanding training

Came here as recommended by a friend. The staff are great and the entire day was enjoyable. After doing a CBT on a moped when I was yonger and then doing it again on a geared bike was a compleatly different experience but thanks to the great trainer I had passed and am now going to book my direct access! Would highly recommend these guys!

Had a friendly, relaxed but extremely informative CBT day with Richard Howes. Considering I'd not been on a bike for approx. 43 years I was impressed on how Richard communicated the knowledge and also gave me confidence whilst on the road with clear instructions and "tips" on what to do and when. Would have no hesitation in recommending Kickstart. Regards Ray.

I had not ridden a bike for 30 years!! I took by CBT and Richard couldn't of been more helpful and informative if he tried, he has the patience of a saint and his teaching skills are excellent. He built up my confidence and was very encouraging. I found all the staff here at kick start very accommodating and nothing too much trouble...Would highly recommend them and can't wait to further my biking journey with Kick Start.

Richard, Many thanks again for helping me back onto two wheels. I enjoyed both sessions very much as you helped me regain some confidence, first with general road sense etc on the 125 then the bigger step up for me onto the 600. Excellent! I am very pleased to have rediscovered the pleasure from riding. It may take me a little while to be fully up and running with my own bike but you have helped a lot in getting me started.

Very accommodating

Returning to biking after nearly 30 years I did my CBT, followed by my mod 1 and 2 some months later, all with Kickstart. I had a different instructor for each part but each was patient, knowledgable and inspired confidence. Many thanks to Guy, Dr Will and Richard for getting me through first go. Thoroughly recommended.

Had an amazing 4 days doing a direct access course with kickstart. I cannot recommend them highly enough, over the 4 days I trained with Guy, Will, Richard and Roz and all were friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic about making sure I was ready for my tests. 11-16th March 2016

I undertook the CBT on the 6th February at the Clevedon centre. Will was my trainer who could not have been better, I had no experience on geared bikes and the format of the course was confidence building and logical. The weather was horrendous with Stomr Imogen doing her best to ruin the day. Will supplied me with some good waterproofs, checked that I wanted to proceed and gave me lots of tips on how to handle the weather and riding in the wind. I really enjoyed the day, completed the CBT and would reccomend the course to anyone. I will be returning to do the full bike licence to build on my skills and gain access to the bigger bikes. Thanks Will!

I took my cbt training on the 26th of January. I found all the staff very friendly and easy to get on with. My instructor (Will) was really helpful and made an effort to give me and the other girl praise when we were doing well which gave me more confidence as I had never used a bike before nevermind with gears. I enjoyed my day and will deffinately come back to Kickstart again.

Sat my cbt well over a year ago and decided it was about time to get my full licence. Pete took me for both my mod1 and mod2. Everybody is very pleasant and patient over at kickstart. Despite myself having a little aggressive roadcraft I passed and can't thank these guys enough for helping me through. I'm considering doing the advanced riding course too, when I've got some spare time. Cheers guys, Alex.

After not riding for over a year I did my second CBT with Kickstarter because my first one had expired. I then went on to do my MOD 1 and 2 to get my full licence. Top notch instructors who instilled a high level of confidence for both passing the tests and road riding. Highly recommended!

Great Training

Really good instructors! I needed CBT mod 1 & 2 to get my full licence and only had limited time. Kickstart helped me achieve my DAS licence. I have and will recommend them to anyone wanting to learn with a high quality team of instructors.

Best phone call I ever made!

Recommend by a friend to give kickstart a ring, when I did they talked me through everything I needed to know and the whole experience was great from start to finish! Oh and it was a personally goal of mine to pass first time with the teams help I did!

Highly recomended

After riding a 125 for nearly 4 years I decided to get my butt in gear and take my test. I was still nervous about riding a bigger bike but all the staff put me at ease and were so supportive when I hurt my hand and had to postpone my Mod 1. I passed mod 1 and 2 first time and it's all down to the fantastic training from Kickstart. Definitely going to do some advanced training (when the weather warms up!!)

Superb Training

I first phoned Kickstart in early 2014 about progressing from my CBT license and taking my A1. Sally spent a significant amount of time giving me the run down on the phone about what options I should take and never pressured me to take more training than I realistically needed. I passed my A1 license in August, and once I was 19 I took my A2 in November. Quality training - they really know what they're talking about. See you in two years for my full A!

Excellent
