DAS Testimonials

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

Simply a great experience

I passed my Mod 2 on 8 Feb 2017 at the first attempt. This was due to the simply fantastic training from Ken and Steve and the Bike Torque team. Honest and reliable advice form the team which got me through easily on the day. I can not say how much I enjoyed this experience. I am really going to miss the lessons. If you are looking to take your bike test then I would recommend Bike Torque who will train you to the right standard. A simply fantastic experience from instructors who have become friends. Thank you so much Bike Torque.

Big thanks

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.

Thanks Ken, Steve and Alan.

Great training and superb biking teachers

Just a note of thanks to both Steve and Ken for getting me through both Module 1 and Module 2 and that Direct Access pass.
Starting briefly on the 500cc through to quickly getting on to the larger Kawasaki's I enjoyed every minute.
The teaching and coaching was superb and these guys are just great bikers to learn with.
If you are looking to get your full license just call Bike Torque. You will not be disappointed and thats a guarantee.
Many Thanks guys

There is no doubt that this is the BEST school in the Midlands. Ken and Steve are thoroughly professional but very relaxed and personable. The lessons are fun and you will learn ALOT from these guys. If you have any questions, they will have the answers. They build your confidence so that when you do go for your test, you can be fairly confident you will pass. They will spot any mistakes you make and show you how to correct them. You will end up as one of the safest riders on the road when you pass with these guys. They are not in it for the money, they clearly do it for the love of biking.

Thank you so much for getting me through my MOD one and Mod two first time guys! I'm kinda sad its over, it was a real blast learning with you! 🙂

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.
Thanks guys

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.

From CBT to DAS

Well, i've thanked Steve, but i didnt mention Ken.

Ken took over where Steve left off and quickly got me on a 500cc bike. Despite being nervous and worried, Ken soon settled me in.

Through out all my training Ken was fair with all is comments and corrected me quickly when i went wrong.

By the time i went for each of my tests, not only did i feel confident of passing but i felt confident of passing with ease.

Im now riding round on this bad boy that i have attached a photo of.

If your unsure, give them a call, you wont regret it.

Even during adverse weather conditions and with pupils from oldie getting back into it and young eager to set out on two wheels they were very professional and at all times friendly none of the old "i am". Many thanks to both Ken and Sue wishing them all the success in the future
