Tom Volpe

Neil, Kev and the guys are absolute legends.  I would rate the quality of their instruction really highly, especially having heard stories of my brother’s experience down in London.

You will pass the test with them, but I feel that their biggest priority was making sure they taught me to ride a bike well and safely on the road – and for that I thank them!

Chris Porter

Right from my CBT the service has been excellent.  The knowledge held by the instructors I encountered was fantastic and their ability to build confidence is second to none.  Thanks again for everything, I’ll be back for some advanced training soon.

Just wanted to thank everyone at NRT.  I can’t sing your praises highly enough.  You all have a great attitude and fantastic patience.

You have given me the confidence to ride and spend quality time with my dad and brother on our bikes.

Big shout out to Kev and Neil – thanks a million!  I really appreciate all your help and support.

I did my motorbike lessons with these guys and I enjoyed every minute of it!  My lessons were tailored brilliantly to my needs, my strengths and weaknesses.

All the instructors were easy to get along with, friendly and very knowledgeable.  Highly recommended.  I intend to go back and do further training with them.

Adam Azzi

I thought I was a decent rider, but I couldn’t imagine how much I would learn from the lessons.  The school’s approach is to make you as good a rider as possible rather than just teaching tips to pass the test.  It was a bit frustrating at first, but once I was on board it instilled the thirst for continual improvement as a rider.  Lesson fees are very fair, the school is very flexible in terms of lesson times, and the instructors are all friendly and knowledgeable.  I honestly can’t thank the guys enough for helping me pass my test, and I’ll definitely be back to learn some more.

Tom Robinson

I’ve done a few training courses in and around Newcastle, and after holding my licence for a few years and limiting my riding to sunshine, I wanted to work on my cornering, wet weather riding and general confidence on the road.  I spoke to Neil who got me booked in very quickly and in the wet and freezing cold (as we aimed for!) I had an absolute blast.  Neil was patient and knew exactly what to teach me with a balanced combination of theory, demonstration and feedback to improve my riding.  There wasn’t a single point in the day which I wasn’t enjoying myself and I came away with more than what I expected to get out of it.  I am more confident and knowledgeable from the hours I spent out and as such, ride safer and more effectively, meaning I’m having more fun regardless of the conditions!  If you want to improve and learn while enjoying yourself, get booked in.  Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Caroline Longrigg

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

Tom Knapton

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.

Adam Kane

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!!

Alan Bainbridge

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.

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.

- Bev Carr
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!

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.

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!
