"I came in to do my DAS after years of driving 125 's in London for years, I developed loads of 'London Habits'. Damon spent plenty of time patiently easing me out of my bad habits and got my @test @ mentality. I will admit I was not the most patient student, and Damon was a great teacher. I can not recommend both Damon, as a trainer, and Carlie as the warm welcome to the shop, highly enough. They are both exceptionally good at making you feel comfortable and welcome. If you are looking at getting training, tis is the place. Thanks again Anthony"

"I started just 8 weeks ago my riding for the very first time in my life. I came to u guys and i was terrified on the very first day where Richard trained me on my cbt and was so patient and kind with me and all my tears...😥. After that I decided to go straight for my full licence and did my theory following Carly's advise about going through the book and dvd. Then...the time to on the big bike came..😱..and Sean was there for me and taught me all i needed to know to pass my tests, mod 1 and 2, and once again handled all my tears due to my fear about so many things. Mick took me to the mod.2 test and taught me some more little tips and especially gave me so much emotional support when i really needed. Lastly I went with Damon to my mod.2 again and made me feel confident and understood as he knew how I am with my emotions. At the end....I got my full licence!!! and all was thanks to u all guys, all your team!! I can only say a huge THANK YOU for everything u have taught me, supported me and made me feel very welcome. You are amazing people and don't think that u have got rid of😉. I would love to be part of the big family u are and will keep visiting u guys and have some coffees with u. I would encourage everyone who wants to get in to the bikes world and get the licence to do it with them as they are ''simply the best''. Lots of love. Xxx Barbara"

""Just had a CBT course Saturday 15th December 18 with Richard as my instructor. Must say he was very good , eased u in a made u feel comfortable on the bike in the training grounds and on the road. Also the staff there were very polite and friendly. Coffees were made and waterproofs given as it started to rain and was very cold after on site train. The lady who made and gave them made the experience that much better . Thank you guys . I will definitely recommend anyone who wants any training on motorcycle usage. Now to start the journey of biking "


"These guys are amazing and were so so welcoming the moment I walked through the door. My first contact was Carlie and she made me feel very relaxed from the moment I walked in. I'd previously done a CBT twice on my 125cc scooter but just wanted to get rid of my L plates. Having the experience I've had with these guys made me realize how bad my CBT experience was (not mentioning who), if I ever decide to experience riding a geared bike, this is where I'd come, they treated everyone as an individual and were really rooting for you to pass, even lending me a pair of gloves for my mod 1 and 2 incase there was an issue with mine as they look more like ski ones and apparently on test that can be an issue. I took 2 attempts on mod 1 but passed 1st time on mod 2 :-)... Couldn't thank these guys enough, they were behind me from beginning and thank you to Carlie for organising tests, couldn't recommend them enough....was a very happy experience. Now have my A1 license and no L Plates :-) ... thanks guys x"

" I got my CBT with SMT Sutton Motorcycle Training. The Instructor was very good. Very nice people in the shop. Definitely very nice and proffesional people working there. I'm sorry I dont remember the names but the lady gave me the best attention when I went to get the information about CBT and license. Please keep up the nice smiles and great attitude, sometimes it's not easy to find. Kind Regards, Craig Montes de Oca "

"Where do I or should I start mmmmmm. These guys and of course Carly have to be the best in making you relax, calm, chilled and funny as heck. I passed mod 1 on 2nd go and mod 2 on 3rd attempt. That being said it had nothing to do with not being taught right or there doing. It was a fact of my being nervous and cocking things up 1st. I have been riding for about 30+yrs but never bothered with a test. The point is it's all about how the test centre instructors are Muppets and depending also if they have had a good night before (cough). True example. I failed mod2 cause I wasn't over the right side enough to right at end of 1 way road which resulted in major fail and not a minor. BUT GUESS WHAT??????? I passed on 3rd go and GUESS what my 3 minors were for???????. I was to far to the right side to turn right. Moral of the story is I had a fantastic instructor in sean but on the days of the test I hope you don't get the bloody fools I did. So again thanks to all the folks who I think of as friends now for making me smile when down and always welcomed me as part of the family. Sean your a great instructor dude. Ride safe, Be safe and open that throttle folks"

"We are really lucky to have these guys so local to Sutton. I tried another training centre that I just didn't like the look of before finding SMT a few years back. Damon is really pationate about his business and even though myself and another rider were doing our CBT refresher rides, he still gives you all of his attention and charm. He is such a genuine guy, easy to talk to and he doesn't mind sharing his knowledge and experience with you which is why I decided to leave some feedback. While on our ride I learned where I needed to improve, what to be aware of and what I did right. I thought we were heading back to base once Damon was satisfied with our riding abilities, but instead he took us over to the testing track. Damon gave us a basic run down of MOD 1 and took away all the fear of it. This really impressed me as he didn't need to spend the extra time with us. His training technique is quite natural and he inspires confidence in your riding. I now find myself putting all of his points into practice daily and I am hoping my next visit here will be to complete my full licence. I would highly recommend Damon and his team. "

"Just finished mod 1 &2 great few days training Sean & Damon great instructors will get you through would highly recommend 10/10"

"Very friendly and professional staff. Did my CBT (Thanks to Richard). Pass the theory after one week, I took 3 days training, booked mod 1 and mod 2 with a gap of 10 days (so, if in case mod 1 is fail, the fee for mod 2 will be safe). Pass my mode 1 in first attempt (Thanks to Sean training and instructions ). After 5 days, a SLOT for mod 2 test was available, which I opt for it, mod 2 test was rebook for me (Tanks to Carlie). After 2 h of instructions with Damon, I pass mod 2 with a minor fault (exit the roundabout at wrong exit). I am very happy with the experience and strongly recommend SMT. Alex "


"Thank you so much for the CBT training/test yesterday. Sean’s a really decent guy with a great deal of paitence and understanding of dealing with a group with different needs. Bitterly cold but made all the better by the lady in the shop itself plying us with hot cups of tea!! Many thanks all round. I will be back to progress further!! Kind regards, Philip Bunn"

"From CBT through to passing my full licence, SMT have been exceptional! They take the time to explain all aspects in detail so your have total understanding. From Carly who kindly sorted out all the bookings and admin, to Sean who expertly trained me up on Mod1 and 2 and finally to Damon who took me for my final test, it's been a truly brilliant experience. The guys treat the business like family and it shows in how they train. No matter what bike licence you're after, I would definitely recommend SMT. Well done guys for a great service and will be back in the future for more advanced training. Thanks again!"

"I passed my full motorcycle test today and i passed my CBT ,A2 TEST with SMT aswell. Everyone that works there are the best and i recommended doing your CBT,A2 AND FULL LICENSE with SMT. Thank you SMT for your training and support."

Sean Marshall

"I’ve always been a fan of motorbikes but never had the confidence to ride, I figured it was time to take my CBT and get out on the road. The guys here made me feel really comfortable and confident. I had the pleasure of meeting Sean and Richard, both very easy to talk to with an unbelievable amount of knowledge and helpful advice. Richard was my instructor and by the end of the day I knew I made the right decision and couldn’t wait to go get my own bike. I will be returning when it’s time to step up onto the big boy/girl bike. Great team would highly recommend! Thanks again! "

"Thank you Steve, a fab instructor. A tough task master, but he knows his stuff. My Safety was paramount in his book. Thorough training both on and off road. Much appreciated! I’d recommend them any day. "

"Very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t recommend highly enough"


"Thank you all very much for a fun yet informative few days passing my A2 which is somthing ive wanted to do for some time now, never felt anxious or nervous thanks to your patience and kindness. would defo recommend to a friend, Thanks, James"


"Very friendly staff who are nothing like the 'grumpy' instructors people usually talk about! The teaching was very thorough and the instructors knew the entire test area very well, highlighting which areas to watch out for on test. They were also very patient and encouraging which helped to boost my confidence They were also very helpful in booking tests on my behalf and organising lessons at short notice Would recommend SMT to anyone learning to ride!"

"EXCELLENT - GREAT INSTRUCTION AND MADE TO FEEL VERY WELCOMED. Took my CBT with SMT on Friday 28th September 2018 with Sean as the instructor. First of safety session, which was informative and much needed as you forget a lot after many years driving a car. Then off to the off-road instruction, there was 4 of us in total so not too many, just right, to be able to practice emergency stop, figure of eight etc in a quiet little private car park. Then we split up into two groups of two to do the CBT road test. There was clear instruction and felt safe at all times, given the opportunity to get used to t-junctions, crossroads and roundabouts as well as dual carriageways to enable one to test competence and confidence within the speed limits on dual carriageways. I was using a manual bike and if you are wanting to go on and do your DAS - full license test then i strongly recommend that you do your CBT test on a manual bike not an automatic. Overall, really enjoyed it and cant wait to start doing my DAS. Many Thanks, Jay "
