"My son Ollie and I took our CBT with Sutton Motorcycle Training in mid September and I promised faithfully to leave some feedback (apologies for the 2 month delay fellas!). From the initial booking over the phone to completion of the CBT was a very enjoyable experience. The back-office/admin is extremely friendly and efficient and Richard was very supportive as our instructor. It speaks volumes about his instruction that he got a slightly anxious 57 year old who'd not ridden a motorbike before and a more confident 26 year old through the test on the same day. Something I was very grateful for with bragging rights on the line! If we do decide to progress to bigger bikes after a while neither of us would consider going anywhere else. If you are thinking of taking the plunge, do it with these guys. You will be supported every step of the way."
"Great training with smt. All staff do as much as they can to make training a 10/10 experience. Wouldn’t recommend anywhere else other than smt "
"I can’t recommend SMT highly enough. I did my CBT and gear conversion with Richard, DAS Mod 1 with Damon and Mod 2 with Sean. The instructors are second to none - I felt really comfortable and learnt quickly, despite having fairly limited riding experience. They felt like friends more than instructors by the time I got my license. They really take the time to get to know you and what teaching methods you respond to. Excellent customer service; always happy to offer advice on training, kit and bikes in person or over the phone. For my Mod 1 they booked out the test centre over the weekend so we could practice and highlight reference points (the famous puddles!) which really helped during the test itself. A 5* experience all round, well worth the money. "
"Had an amazing experience with these guys. Trained and passed with them first time and they helped me massively with my confidence. Thank you to all at sutton motorcycle training, I'll definitely recommend you. "
"Had a great day with Richard he is a good instructor brillant at his job make u feel so safe And confident and we passed straight away I would definitely recommend these guys "
"Recently finished my DAS course and passed MOD2 for full A license. Just want to say a very big thank you to SMT for their professionalism and patient attitude. They helped trained me from scratch within 5 days how to ride a bike. I've passed MOD1 without fault and MOD2 with 1 minor. SMT absolutely fantastic and definitely will visit them for advanced course and ride outs. Wishing all the best to the team If anyone reads my feedback and thinking about starting bike license. Don't hesitate, SMT is what you are looking for!"
"Having just turned 50 I decided to start my midlife crisis by getting my "big bike" licence and relive the days of my youth thirty years ago riding a 50cc bike in South Africa. To say I was apprehensive would have been an understatement but SMT assured me that it was possible and so after doing my CBT a year ago I decided to go ahead with the 4-day DAS course. Having not ridden for such a long time and then to basically start on a 600cc bike was amazing, exhilarating and hard work but so enjoyable!!. I am extremely happy to say that I passed both tests first time and this is purely down to Sean, Richard and the team at SMT for their superb coaching, advice and support - their aim is to make sure that you can drive safely and to get you through the test and they are experts at both. My next dilemma - what bike to get? At least I am now not restricted in any way and intend to try them all out. Once again - A VERY BIG THANK YOU and I have no hesitation in recommending SMT to anyone who is looking to start their motorcycle journey."
"Hi guys I have done a review on google but just wanted to say a massive thank you. I completed my CBT on Sunday but everything overall has been excellent. After taking me nearly 3 months to come in, I now regret that. Sean and Richard where superb excellent teachers and I can’t wait to book my DAS course ( once the pennies are available) I will be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again Danny "
"Highly recommend this training centre – first time passes of mod 1 and mod 2 from starting with limited experience. I learned with Sean and Damon and they were brilliant! Great knowledge of the local test routes and roads that might catch you out. While the training is quite intense the guys ensure you are more than prepared for what you’ll face in the test itself. But it’s also a lot of fun! Definitely give them a call if you’re thinking about taking your motorbike test – Carlie was so helpful on the phone too with planning to a tight schedule for me. Thanks everyone!"
"A review for Short People by a short person: I'm 5ft4 and did my CBT Sept 2018. Was happy pottering around on my 125cc but everyone kept saying to me - do a DAS on the full A license - you'll be fine - it's worth it - etc etc... But I just did not have any confidence on getting on the bigger cc bikes and was looking at doing an A1 or A2. But then, having done a long road trip on the 125cc I realised I could do with more power - and so was recommended SMT by my CBT Instructor (Mungo Williams - fab guy!) as they have a lowered bike. Dropped a line to Carly and she was fantastic, listening to my concerns and angst, and then arranging a one-2-one day on a 600cc lowered bike. Pete (#TFL) took me out for the day - and wow, what a difference a day makes. I gained so much confidence from Pete and the lowered bike and yes, I was hooked. I needed to do the full test. Booked a 4 day course with Carly that afternoon and today (October 2019) I passed my Mod 2 and have a full license! SMT have been fantastic - from Carly sorting out my courses, Pete (#TFL) instructing me and Sean chaperoning me on my actual test days... I could not have asked for more. I'm a little older (and shorter) than most bike learners and so I would say a bit fussier or set in my ways with service and approach when it comes to learning and SMT ticked all the right boxes. They understood me. They listened, instructed - and actually, they did not instruct - they coached me to get over the line and pass my Full License test. If you want a place that caters for you, helps and supports you to pass - don't look further - especially if you are of the short variety and not confident/sure of getting on the bigger bike. SMT will prove to you that you can do it and then get you through the tests. Thank you again Pete (#TFL), Sean and Carly. And of course Richard, Damon and all the others who make the place such a friendly place to hang around in - I used to actually stay and have a cuppa just to chat! They're probably happy I passed so I don't loiter anymore! :-) "
"Just did my CBT,great friendly staff.Trained with Richard who was very good,put me at ease straight away and was patient.By the end of the course i felt confident to ride on the road safely.Can recommend SMT and i will be back for more training to get a full bike licence.5/10/19"
"Hey, did my CBT course with SMT they were great throughout from arriving to leaving. Thanks guys for an awesome day and I passed 🤝🙂 Special thanks to Richard that was my instructor really calm and explain it all so clear. Thanks again guys 03/10/2019"
"Thank you sooooo very much for your swift, professional, extremely helpful and supportive service, I'm happy to say I passed both my Mod1 and Mod2 first time with the wonderful people here at SMT. Every single one of them has helped contribute to this achievement, everything from advice and supporting words . I could run through a huge list of superlatives to describe everyone and it wouldn't be enough. If you want to do any kind of training you must come to these guys, you will not regret it for one second that I will guarantee! Special thanks for Damon and Sean. Sean was an excellent instructor and taught me everything I needed to know for mod2. Damon was very knowledgeable and helpful with mod 1and 2 .Customer service from both was top notch. "
"I just want to say a huge THANKYOU for an amazing day training. Sean was an excellent instructor and taught me everything I needed to know for my cbt. Damon was very knowledgeable and customer service from both was top notch. Cannot recommend enough! Outstanding. Thankyou... As Arnold would say... I’ll be back... "
"Thank you sooooo very much for your swift, professional, extremely helpful and supportive service, which was definitely a HUGE contributing factor to me passing my MOD 2. Your service and training goes above and beyond, and I am extremely grateful for all your help. I will be highly recommending you guys to every and anyone, whose intention is to pass their MOD 1 & 2 under the guidance of, what I deem to be, the most professional and effective training team that I have been fortunate to have engaged with. Once again, THANK YOU Glen JB"
"Went in to do my CBT with no prior experience at all, but thanks to the staff here, who make you feel very relaxed, it wasn't at all a problem. Many thanks in particular to my instructor, Richard, for his patience, giving me very honest feedback and guidance throughout the whole day. Started the day as a complete beginner, but through great teaching was able to meet the requirements to leave with a CBT certificate! "
"After a taster session, with Sean, last week, I returned to do my CBT, with Sean, yesterday. I'm really impressed with SMT and everything ran smoothly and efficiently. The booking system and customer care is excellent - thank you Carlie - and superb instruction from Sean. A great experience and I highly recommend SMT. "
"I trained for my conversion to riding a geared 125 bike to jumping in a 600cc bike ( which I found really daunting at first) to gaining my full licence within five weeks. My Instructor was Michael; excellent instructor who builds your confidence and skills step by step. It was a great experience. I passed my CBT a week earlier with any motorcycle training school and it was like chalk and cheese. With SMT you get to a level of riding that is far beyond what you need to pass your tests; it is what you need to be a great rider. I have bought my first big bike Honda CBR 600F and I am really able to enjoy, control and relax on it through the skills Michael has given me. A big thank you to the rest of the team who are really pleasant and encouraging. Great team and a brilliant Instructor. Thanks Michael A.M"
