Totally disappointed. Supposedly there was a 'free' recovery service within the M25 for hires. Called up S.O.S Recovery to only find out that no agreement was in place. I was stuck in a dodgy area at around midnight and had to walk for nearly half a mile to a cash machine to withdraw £100. Its now 159 days since I paid out and they have no interest in refunding the expense I was put to, would seriously consider if this is the type of company you want to hire from. When I mentioned that I... (read more)

I have recently completed the CBT. The course was about 8 hours and it was extremely well planned. It was divided into classroom theory, on-site bike riding skills, followed by a 2 hour scooter ride on the roads with the instructor and two students. My instructor was an excellent teacher - extremely knowledgeable, proficient, professional, polished with a great sense of humour. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. I would recommend the course to others. (read more)

Took my cbt for the 5th time , after riding my scooter for 4 years. Failed twice the first time round and having to retake every 2 years. As usual at get bike I really enjoyed myself and it refreshed my memory how to ride safetly and get rid of my bad habits I picked up while riding on my own. My instructor was Stan and he really takes notice to everything you do and how you ride. Would reccomend get bike 110‰ to anyone, and it´s worth travelling to even if you come from a distance...

Had an amazing day! The team were professional and welcoming from start to finish. Arrived a little late, but was warmly welcomed to the group and told the plan for the day. Everything was explained fully before getting out onto the bikes to reassure the younger /less experienced members of the group. During the morning we spent a few hours in the test centre practicing slow control and basic handling. Nigel had the patience of a saint and took the time to get everyone up to speed. The...

I renewed my CBT at Getbike. I had done the first one somewhere two years ago where I got very disappointed with the careless of the informations regarding the Highway code and the its importance. As I worked as theory instructor for drivers in my country, I got very impressed with the all Getbike instructors´ professionalism. They really take their job with responsibility to make sure the trainee is prepared to ride on the roads. Great infrastructure, friendly and experienced staff. I... (read more)

From the moment i walked into the door, i was greeted with a friendly face with a smile. I was directed to the appropiate room instantly and as soon as i walked in, was put at ease by the friendly nature of my instructor (terry). For someone who has never ridden a bike before and didnt know what to expect from the day, this was the best possible start i could have wished for. Right from the off on the pads i was also put at ease with Terry understanding my zero knowledge of never ridden... (read more)

What a fantastic team, I've just got home after completing my CBT!. They took me from someone who'd never sat on a motorbike, a nervous wimp spouting apologies, to a confident road user in the space of 10 hours. I am so glad I did it. They taught us in groups of three, so you really have the one to one attention you need, which gives a lot of confidence and they don't mind how many times you make a mistake whilst your learning to control the bike. I would recommend this to anyone who wants... (read more)

Very Friendly, and helpfull instructors. The whole day was very informative and stress free. I personaly thought the course was well thought out and the classes not too large, which enabled the instructors to give each rider, be it on Scooter or Motor Cycle the necessary if needed extra help as and when needed. Thank you to all staff at Get Bike for making a pleasant and educational day out of what might be considered a daunting experience for some new Future Motor Cyclists and Scooterists. (read more)

Great thorough training and all your questions, if you have any, will be answered. The course really is as easy, or as hard, as you make it. Listen carefully to instructions, apply everything you're told whilst riding and you'll fly through the training. If you're doing something wrong, for example relying on the throttle being spring-loaded to slow down, you will be reminded, given advice, and asked to repeat the instructions until you can clearly demonstrate your understanding of the...

"As this was my first CBT course, never had been on the road before, I was quite nervous to be honest. I went to GETBIKE centre a little bit early where I've met the manager who took care of me offering me coffe or tea and told me to have a rest if I want before the course. Then I was introduced to our instructor - Terry. During the theoretical and practical part with him I felt safe. He repeated everything for us, asked us if is there anything we don't understand and if needed explain to us... (read more)

"The CBT course was great. It was my first time on a bike, and the instructor was very supportive and helped me to get confident and ride with the other students that had more experience. I felt safe and had a lot of fun. Very professional instructors that also convey their passion for biking! I hope I can soon ride a ""real"" bike :-)

My day of training for my Mod 2 test was conducted by Tony and was very professional and useful. Tony structured the day in a very digestible order, and his instruction during the day was at the perfect level and very insightful - with the key areas I needed to work on being quickly identified. Tony also offered lots of additional advice about maintaining my bike, and was extremely helpful in answering various questions that I had. Following his training I felt entirely confident and...

I was very impressed with the whole experience, everyone was very friendly and put us all at our ease. The instructor was Tony who was evidently very experienced, very confident in what he was teaching us. I felt completely confident when I was taken out on the roads with him behind me. The information that I was given was good and easy to understand, and he was infinitely patient. I couldn't find anything that would need to be improved.

I was particularly impressed by the focus on road safety. I'd recommend anyone interested in learning to ride a bike to come to Get Bike and I'm looking forward to learning further with Get Bike's additional courses before I take my test.
