fantastic, Great teaching skills
I am writing this from a slightly different point of view than a student, I have known Steve and Ken for a few years now and have found them to be great instructors and have a great sense of humour, they have been in this industry in one form or another for many years and draw on many more years of riding experience.
We have got the same work and teaching standards which are extremely high and strive to make everyone who come to the school have the best learning experience they can have.
they have at times given me great advice also.
I will and have sent students to them in the past who have contacted me about training in the Nottingham area. I can not recommend them enough and know if you use them to get your licence you will have the best and safest training you can get. they have an extremely high pass rate which is way beyond the national average. like a said I can not recommend them enough
Loughborough School of Motorcycling
Firstly I would like to thank all at Bike Torque. I would recommend Bike Torque to anyone thinking of obtaining a full bike licence or even if you are just after getting through your CBT.
I was brought from novice beginner to passing my CBT, MOD 1 & 2 all within a handful of lessons, thanks to a professionally ran school at 3 of the best instructors.
Firm, Straight talking and to the point but approachable enough to be asked any questions and knowledgeable to give you right answers.
One of the best decisions I made was taking my lessons with Bike Torque so again a massive thank you to Steve, Ken and Alan top guys who I can only wish the best for.
I have recently passed DAS. I have to thank Alan, Steve and especially Ken who I spent most of my lesson time with.
The CBT was conducted by Alan and he immediately made me feel at ease and built my confidence, especially as I had never been on a bike! I had always wanted my licence and was nervous when I stepped up to the big bikes, however I shouldn't have worried. Ken got me up to a standard I needed for my MOD 1 and I passed well. Steve took me on lessons a few times and there was never any difference in the instruction, it was always professional and consistent. However, you will need a sense of humour! The banter is good and helps you through the lessons and once all the information is taken in and put into practice, you can't wait to have a go perfecting your skills. I went to the MOD 2 test with Steve who had a good manner in preparing me for the test and I went in with confidence. I passed and have now got the Bike I had waited 20 years to get!
Thanks to all at Bike-Tourque. I can not recommend you highly enough.
Great day !
Have just completed my cbt with Allan. Really enjoyed it. Brilliant teaching skills cant wait to go back next week to start lessons on the big bikes! Thanks !!!!
Had a one hour basic today which I wasn't looking forward to (my partner wants me to ride my own moped on holiday, rather than have a croggy off him!).
I was anxious and not at all confident, but Alan was patient and informative. He made sure I had the basics to keep me safe, and we went over the things I felt I needed as well.
I really enjoyed my hour and, due to Alan's professionalism and sense of humour, am now considering taking my CBT when I get back from Greece.
Would recommend this company with no reservations. 🙂
massive thank you to Ken and Allan for helping me pass my CBT today. they made me feel welcome and it was a laugh aswell. i learnt alot about bike saftey and i never felt any pressure felt very relaxed. see you guys for my mod 1 and 2
I came to bike tourqe to complete my cbt after many recommendations. The main hurdle in my way was my nerves, but with 10 minutes they was gone before I'd even got on the bike the level of tuition and general care for your saftey makes you feel more than at ease.
Thanks again to Allan can't thank you enough. I'll be seeing you guys soon for my mod 1 and 2
Gawin is the man
Passed by CBT a while back but I am stopping by to give some positive feedback.
I had zero experience before and Gawin taught me from the ground up in just a few hours I was on the road and feeling confident thanks to his instruction.
Started the new year with ambition to get my full bike licence. In March I started my CBT. Never riden a bike before and quiet nervous Steve helpped relax my nerves and taught me all the basics of riding a 125cc. Loved every minute of it. A few weeks later I Started my DAS training with Ken. I think my biggest fear at the time was never riding a bike to a 500cc in less than a few weeks. But with the professional help and tuition from Ken most worries became a thing of the past. Aced the Mod 1 part of the test and passing MOD2 shortly after was a big achievement and could thank Bike torque enough for the help in achieving my goal. Can not recommend enough. A year later now riding a kawasaki zx6r 636.
I can't thank ken,Steve and Gawin enough for all of their help and support from cbt through to full licence passed mod 2 today and what a fantastic feeling 3 of the best instructors you could wish for calm and enthusiastic all the way through if your ever in doubt about big bikes or learning 125 give them a call you won't regret it
Simply thank you :)))
After a roller coaster few years, I passed my CBT today!
I can't thank Gawin enough for helping me overcome my main stumbling block, nerves, and making it brilliant fun to learn & pass!!
Onwards & upwards to the bigger bikes :))))
really enjoyable day
big thanks to G-man, had a very good day even with the rain, G-man is like yoda with a bike if he cant teach u.. no one can! from beginners to re-takers you will walk away a safer rider, highly recommend bike-torque if you want to learn to ride safely and properly and have a good laugh doing it deffinatley go with them
A very relaxed and fun leaning environment thanks to the attitude of the instructors but without losing any of the requirements for good training. Having already completed a CBT i was whisked through and finished the day with minimum effort. I will certainly be coming back to Bike Torque for my full licence.
Passing my cbt
I passed my cbt last week thanks to gawin. I had very little riding experience before my cbt but still passed.the training was fun and it was an enjoyable day I felt at ease the whole time and liked how gawin didn't rush me and helped me along at my own pace all in all a great day. I now have a brand new 125 moped and am enjoying traveling round on my own transport so a big thanks to gawin and the guys at bike torque.
Professional, friendly and down to earth
I have just had and passed my C.B.T on 4/08/2013 thanks to Gawin, a.k.a G-MAN. His approach on teaching is absoloutely perfect. Even with 3 other people practising for their c.b.t aswell he still went out of his way to make sure we all got excellent advice on our strenghts and weaknesses. Gawin had time to show, watch and let us no how to improve without confusing us or making it sound like rocket science. I strongly recommend Bike-Torque for anyone who's wanting to take or Retake their C.b.t or other bike training. I cant thank G-MAN enough and i'll definately be doing my C.B.T again with Bike-Torque in 2 years when i have to do my resit. THANKS AGAIN GAWIN, The G-MAN
Ken and the guys at Bike Torque took me straight through from CBT to Full test and were outstanding instructors throughout, thank you so much guys!
I just passed my cbt with Gawin, loved it!
He's a very capable and patient instructor and it was a pleasure to have met him.
He got me through the test no problem.
Cant wait to use these guys for the big one soon!!
fab training and cbt
i have just passed my CBT thanks to Gawin. I had a few lessons first as i hand only been on a bike twice before. very friendly and honest with what you are doing right and wrong and don't rush you if you are not ready for a CBT they will ask you to do a lesson or two.but it is better to be safe then sorry.I would recommend bike-torque to anyone who asks me about lessons,CBT or tests and when i am ready i will be going back to do my full bike test. thank you so much i have really enjoyed my self and learnt so much.
Form the first to the last lesson I enjoyed ever minute of my cbt and my das training with Steve and ken,they was extremely easy to get on with and very helpfully when explaining the right and wrongs,would highly recommend the to anyone thinking about doing their motorbike lessons.
Chilled, Easy Going, Professional
As I had never ridden a bike before I was lacking confidence when It came to doing my CBT.
Steve quickly changed this by being Easy Going, Informative, Witty and at the same time Professional.
I have recommended Bike-Torque to everyone I know that are looking to get into biking, be it a CBT or Full License.
I will definitely be coming back to Bike-Torque in the near future to complete my DAS.
I started out a few years ago now with Bike-Torque. I only popped along with a friend to watch him do his CBT and was convinced by Steve to have a sit on a bike. Im soooo glad now that i did.
Steve took me through the day from never having ridden before to having some fun on a few A roads. What an amazing day and experience from some of the best guys in the business.
If your even thinking about riding a bike, do it. If your not thinking about riding a bike. DO IT, and do it with these guys.
Josh Bailey-Brown, Clifton
