What a brilliant place with a friendly bunch of Guys and Gals (Toni!). Hadn`t rode a bike for 33 years but everyone was so relaxed and told me not to worry!. I`m quite a calm person but on the day of my CBT training with the thought of riding on the road again my nerves were getting the better of me!!.
Graham, my instructor soon but a stop to that and filled me with confidence again.... Brilliant.... Cheers mate. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and I`ll see you all again in a few weeks for my Mod 1 and 2. I`d have no hesitation in recommending Shires to anyone.

Did a retake for my CBT with Pete. Fantastic guy, all of the guys there are ! Very polite, made you feel at ease. I expressed an interest of taking my bike test but told them of my concern with gears, they actually allowed me to have a try to see if I would be comfortable with a geared bike and I have to say I am hooked, will be sitting my bike test ASAP !!! Need to do a CBT or a test done go anywhere else !

I would like to thank Shires and especially Pete for the excellent training given to me on my CBT. I really enjoyed the day, having not been on a bike for over 30 years. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks.

Great training for New and experienced riders highly recommended



  - Andy Merry Said:

Hadn't ridden a bike for 20 years. Took a Direct Access course. Did the CBT Mod 1 & Mod 2 in 5 days. Passed thanks to the great training at Shires. Thanks to Dan & Andy for getting me through it all. The training was really enjoyable. Shires has excellent facilities, equipment & staff. Thanks to all at Shires. I would recommend them to anyone.

  - Anthony Read Said:

Whilst still fresh in my mind I wanted to thank you and your team, especially, Alan, Danny and Steph who put up with me from CBT to my Mod 2. At the age 49 not much makes me nervous but both mod 1 and 2 certainly did Most of all however I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, great fun and lots of banter with people that clearly enjoy what they do. I’d recommend it to anyone and should have done it years ago. I now need to decide what bike to get, what a decision!

  - Ben Said:

Did my cbt today great teAm thanks to dan for getting me through it would recommend to anybody thanks once again ben

  - Chris Wiseman Said:

The proof is in the test results and with Mod 1 and Mod 2 passed today with no minors, it is safe to say that Shires (and Dan in particular) did a great job! Did my training including a CBT refresher and both modules over the space of a few weeks and it was all really well delivered. From Tom helping to make the CBT more challenging through to Dan tailoring three days of off and on road training, they really managed to deliver a package that was right for me. Big thank you for the training and I’ll see you back for an Enhanced Course once the new bike is in the garage :)

  - Craig Walker Said:

Completed cbt yesterday with Dan. The course was packed with crucial information and delivered so well that for someone like myself (who has never been on the road before on a bike, or been on a bike…. ever!) boosted confidence enough to just get up and go! it has even got me considering buying another copy of the highway code just to get up to scratch (and i’ve been a car driver for 15+years!) The Team are faultless professionals in what they do with regard to service & safety, at all levels. I’ll be back sometime soon for the mod1 & 2! Anyone thinking of doing bike training, just phone in and book, its pretty awesome! Again, thanks for yesterday chief, bang on!

  - Daniel Wilkinson Said:

Absolutely 2nd to none training! Ian,Alan,Dan & Tom I can’t thank you all enough, having my full licence is a dream to me and it was made easy & fun by you guys with fantastic days out with you all! Very professional would recommend to anybody!

  - Darren Clayton Said:

Really enjoyed my days training for my CBT. Very friendly and informative, many thanks.

  - Georgia White Said:

Taking my cbt was a brilliant day,really friendly instructors who made me feel at ease when I messed up.. Made me feel confident to go out on the road and after their great banter and professional help I passed. Would recommend shires to anyone looking to get on a bike. Thanks for a brilliant day!

  - Madeleine Welland Said:

I followed in my brother’s footsteps in choosing Shires to complete my CBT and Direct Access course. I started in November and finished my Mod 2 at the end of January. I found the great teaching and high quality of on-road learning (with Danny in my ear via headset) led to a relaxed and confident approach to riding in my everyday life. I’m now sitting pretty on a Kawasaki ER6F, I’m looking forward to taking my refresher tests with Shires in two years time. I would highly recommend this company, the staff are friendly and efficient; they even wave when we cross paths!

  - Natalie Stanger Said:

Passed my CBT test yesterday .. yahh!! i throughly enjoyed it all. The team makes it a fun day and you certainly learn alot to. Want to say a massive thank you to Dan :-) great instructor/Teacher.

  - Rich Said:

Completed Cbt Mod 1 and Mod 2 about three year ago passed first time on all. Today did my enhanced rider scheme .Enjoyed the entire experience people are friendly and proffesional. I would deinitley recommend them

  - Robert Said:

Many thanks to Ian today for his professional attidutes to safe riding both on & off the road. I completed CBT today for the 2nd time, just need to do MOD 1 & 2 at some point. I would certanly recommend the Shires for their friendly & pro attitudes to safe riding, maintenence & handling. Cheers guys!!

  - Shyam Said:

Took my CBT with them a couple of years ago and then this month did my DAS training and passed first time on both Mod 1 and Mod 2. Great team of instructors and thanks a lot to Alan, Steph and Dan and Pritesh. And thanks to Tom for helping with adjustments to my schedule. A really great Training school and will be reccomending to others in the future!

  - Simon Said:

My friend Steve and I completed our CBT on the Yamaha 600s last Tuesday. We had a brilliant day – thanks Dan for the entertaining circuits of the site! On the road, we had a brilliant time with Ian – his patience (and honesty!!) made our day completely beneficial. I think Steve will never forget to turn his indicator off from now on (and I can still hear it)! We will both be back soon to complete our DAS training!

  - Andy Shirley Said:

Great bikers who really know their stuff – they also tell you ‘it’ straight – I did my CBT, Mod1 & 2 and passed all three first time thanks to these guys and their no nonsense approach – Thanks Steffan, Alan and Dan.

  - Simon Said:

Hi guys, just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you at Shires for guiding me through from CBT to my full licence. It has been a great laugh and I have learnt loads. Tom, Ian, Alan, Dan and Andy, you all gave such great advice, and for helping me pass my Mod 1 and 2 first time!

  - Kelvin Brearley Said:

I would like to say thank you to Ian, completed my CBT today really enjoyed it, :) next time will ride with visor down so don’t get face covered in flies. See you in a few months for my mod 1+2. Thanks again great team

  - Carl Said:

Really enjoyed my week training with shires, completed CBT and passed mod 1 & 2 with the fantastic support and advice from everyone there, great team, many thanks

  - Dene Said:

CBT & Mod1 completed through Shires. Very nice bunch of people very focussed on helping you ride safe and well.

  - Jeremy Said:

Full bike licence completed…I do not believe there could possibly be a nicer more friendly bunch of people. Just wow !! passed first time for each part of Mod 1 and 2. A big thanks to Dan and and the whole team at Shires :)

  - Kelsey Lear Said:

Yesterday i completed my full bike test :), I managed to pass all of the tests first time round and cannot thank the shires enough, without the help, advice and lovely people that work there i would have never got on a bike and now i will never look back!

  - Helen Mather Said:

Did my CBT yesterday and everyone there is fantastic. Put me at ease and really boosted my confidence. Went out for my 2hour road ride with Dan and he was brilliant and very funny and despite the problems I was having with my bike, he remained patient and kept me calm (even though I did loose him at one point!).He was constantly talking us through our journey and telling us what to look out for and keeping us safe from the crazy Sunday drivers that were out to kill us! I am now thinking about doing the mod 1 and 2 to get my full licence and will def go back to these guys, they made what I expected to be a really stressful day relaxed and fun which is what riding a motorcycle should be. Thanks so much guys for all your tips and help getting me on the road. If you are looking for motorcycle training then look no further…..brilliant.

  - Peter Underhill Said:

Did my Mod 1 & Mod 2 with these guys and WOW what a team!.
