I completed my CBT last November and since then have been riding my 125 Varadero from Abergavenny to Newport fairly regularly.

I decided to take my DAS in June and chose Biketrain. My first impression was one of calm competence and it’s my last as well.
They know what they are doing, are experienced and thorough and I found it very confidence-inspiring.
I was also impressed at how having different instructors made little difference; the attitude and rigour was consistent.
It took me a few goes to pass my Mod 1. I hadn’t realised how nervous I’d geT.
During my trips to the test centre I did like the way that every available moment of riding time was used to take us on Mod 2 routes and polish our on-road skills.
Following the exhaustive (and exhausting) training day for the Mod 2, I passed first time. So it paid off and as I was doing the test I felt completely confident because we had prepared the routes so well.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Biketrain. They are a very friendly bunch and are a great way to start riding.
Now if I can just get the Transalp to start, I’ll be off…
