Dear the 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

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 the team 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 had no intention of treating me like a school kid and gave instruction that was perfectly paced and real world.

Their 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 !


From tears to Triumph. The instructors of Cwmbran Biketrain have encouraged, supported and taught me to ride my bike. From CBT to test they have enabled me to ride safely and confidently.

Their patience, humour and experienced knowledge alongside their teaching methods and team ethics are second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending them to all ladies wishing to ride.
A very sincere thank you to everyone.
