Absolutely top notch training.  Got me from CBT to full licence.  I needed extra help with my clutch control and they tailored lessons and routes to suit and to build my confidence.  Very professional and they certainly know their stuff!  I would trust these guys with my life (and there were a couple of times I did!)

Just a quick note to say how thankful I am to your school for teaching me to ride.  It was a monumental sense of achievement; beginning the week as a complete novice, without even sitting a theory test, only to be riding back from the test centre on the Friday morning grinning like a four year old on Christmas Day.  This, I am sure, is entirely down to the knowledge, experience and professionalism of all within your school and, well, maybe a bit of luck…

Not only is your workforce highly professional, but all at Newcastle Rider Training are genuine people who made the week a delightful experience.  Your business is certainly something you should be proud of; an excellent facility with excellent bikes and excellent people.  Please pass on my thanks to both John and Dan for their instrumental roles throughout the week.   Very approachable and knowledgeable gentlemen with a real talent for mentoring.

With appreciation

I’ve done my various bike licences across a few schools in the Newcastle area and this one stands out as being the best by a significant margin.  Very friendly staff and excellent brand-new SV650s if you’re on your A licence.

Neil was my main instructor; his experience and skill were evident in both his riding ability and instruction.  What this guy doesn’t know about riding and roadcraft isn’t worth knowing.  You might pay a little bit more than at other schools but it really is worth it for the quality of instruction.

I can do nothing but thoroughly recommend this school to anyone in Newcastle.

Passed my CBT and all three licence categories with these guys and cannot say a bad word about them.  Neil and Kev are great even just to have a friendly chat with, and John helped me through all my tests and is a truly top notch instructor.  The review section on Facebook doesn’t do these guys justice, I thoroughly recommend them.

Thanks to everyone at Newcastle Rider Training I was able to pass my A2 test and fulfil a dream of mine that I had for a long time.  No words can describe how grateful I am to all the lads who helped me pass my test. Thank you, and see you in two years for my full Category A!!

Neil, John and Kev are all brilliant instructors and I can’t recommend this place highly enough if you want to learn to ride or, like me, want to get back into it after a long time off. Fantastic!

Having never sat on a geared bike to passing my Mod 2 within a month, I can’t recommend Neil and the lads enough. Brilliant teaching in a safe environment gives even the most nervous of first time riders the confidence and skills which are needed. Thanks again.

From my CBT all the way through to my Module One and Two, these guys got me the first time pass that I wanted so badly. They gave me the confidence I needed, and the training and advice was easy to follow and understand.  Thanks again so much.

I thank the team for putting all the time that they gave me with all their experience to get me through my tests. Give them a shot – I’m sure they will be as good for anyone else as they have been for myself.

Would strongly recommend NRT to anyone wanting to learn to ride a motorcycle. Excellent tuition, extreme patience and good humour from all. A lovely bunch of people.

Fantastic advanced motorcycle tuition preparing me for my 6,000 miles ride to Norway last year. I’ve been riding 9 years and I learned a great deal on my day with Neil. Can’t recommend them highly enough, this stuff can save your life!

Just rode The Forgotten Highway in New Zealand, 1000 kms door to door in pretty extreme weather…it’s not supposed to hail down here!. The training I got in just a week with NRT in July made all the difference.

Mark Watt

Amazing instructors! They do all the work! Book tests and prepare you! All you need to do is turn up and enjoy the ride! Highly recommended!!

Neil’s note: we don’t do everything – you do have to put a bit of effort in yourself!

Excellent training centre. I’ve done my CBT twice here now and wouldn’t use anyone else. The trainers are top lads and make the whole day fun, as well as informative will definitely be back x

Massive thank you to Neil, Kev and John. CBT to passing Mod2 in a matter of weeks. a superb place to learn how to ride safely and have a load of fun. Thanks again lads!

Chris Kemp

Great instruction from the trainers at Newcastle Rider Training. I’ve rode with John and Kev, and had great fun doing so. You’d be hard pressed to find better training from more patient, knowledgeable riders. As testament to their work, I passed my full licence this afternoon, and will be going back in due course to get some further training. Thanks again lads.

Brilliant bunch of guys – very friendly and helpful will definitely recommend to everyone I know.

David Kemp

Top notch instruction – John and Neil are excellent teachers. John has the patience of a saint and helped me to relax and flow with the bike, and Neil’s knowledge of just about all things motorcycling was invaluable in helping me identify and overcomes the things I found challenging. Highly recommended, I can’t say enough good things about Newcastle Rider Training!
