“Don't bother going anywhere else!”

Written on: 07/08/2012

I got recommended to this firm by a good mate because he knows about bikes. Like a lot of people i was @*it scared about riding a bike or falling of and getting hurt. In about may i did the cut on a manual with pete who was a bit serious but i now totally understand why.....riding bikes is dangerous. Once i did the cut i was hooked and then flew through the theory pass, get a cd to help, and then went back to do the full bike test/course. everywhere else was telling me i had to do a 5 or… Read Full Review

“CHAMPIONS AT TEACHING, simply the BEST!”

Written on: 07/08/2012

One stop instruction is simply amazing! I was a lil worried a I haven't been on a bike that much but I got a warm, friendly and professional day training which I was really happy with. One stop don't just take your money and teach you, they actually give you advice to what suits your needs better and different/better ways of riding as every rider is different. This really helped me as I have a disability but the encouragement you get from the guys at one stop is second to none! All I gotta say… Read Full Review

“Highly recommended 1stopinstruction ”

Written on: 05/08/2012 by Andyf1963 (1 review written)

I live 10 mins from Metropolis and an hour from 1stop. I have used Metropolis before and felt there is a lot of wasted time in the course, as well as being very expensive and a little chaotic. What attracted me to 1Stop was the 1 2 1 training. Being a scooter rider, Kav had me on a 500cc bike within 30 mins and on the North Circular within an hour ! This was invaluble to me and had me prepared for the 3 day DAS course. There is no down time on the course, its intense but informal and you get… Read Full Review

“stay away from 1stop instruction, waste your money”

Written on: 30/07/2012

i did the cbt today, (not happy with full course), reason as followed: 1. my pratical riding ended 30mins early, because the speedmeter was not working on moped. been told that was my fault(therefore not passing). 2. if you are a scooter beginning learner, never ride 'push bike' and not able to balance, they will tell u to going home after 5mins on site training. 3. also not formerly hold car driving license, and familiar with road driving condition, certainly 100% will not pass this cbt test… Read Full Review

I am sorry to hear that you had a "negative" experience with 1 Stop. On the contrary I found them very good and although I was very nervous about going out on the road they "covered" me and gave instructions through the earpiece. I felt much more confident about going out by myself afterwards.

Disagree also with this review. I passed a restricted full motorcycle license with them first time about 8 years ago. I had a good experience. Obviousy you need to make an effort and be able to ride a push bike before you go. Balancing on two wheels is pretty fundamental to riding any bike.

My daughter passed there first time and she had never ridden a motorbike in her life.
She could obviously ride a pushbike though, which in all fairness you would need to do before getting on machine that could kill you.

I am sorry to hear of your "negative" experience. I found exactly the opposite with them, as they guided me through the basics in the car park before taking me out on the road. It was "nerve wracking" going out first time, but they "covered me" and taught me the basics before "passing" me on the CBT. chris S

“Great day, Great instructor, shame about the weather”

Written on: 22/07/2012 by ptipad (1 review written)

I turned up in the morning pretty early for my CBT and was a little apprehensive when I saw just a container unit in a car park and no one around, the instructor soon arrived and put me at ease with his amiable manner. His approach to the task of delivering the "classroom" information he needed to implant in us (I myself train clients and also teach people how to train, so I am normally quite critical) was concise and clear without being condescending or boring. The onsite practical training… Read Full Review

“Best Training Ever! Please check my review!”

Written on: 20/07/2012

I'm just going to give you some bullet points on my experience with these guys (based on around 5 training sessions with them). I chose them due to the convenient location of the school in central London. Be smart like me and do some research on other schools no matter how far they are from you; its all worth it and you will save money. I recommend 1 stop instruction in Ilford. Kabal and Pepsi are amazing! I love these guys! and I'm sure you will too!. So...here is what Metropolis is about: - I… Read Full Review

“DAS PASSED WITH 0 MINORS IN MODULE 1 & 2 - GO TO ILLFORD”

Written on: 20/07/2012 by Phil_Schonborn (1 review written)

I originally booked myself onto a 3 day DAS course with 1stopinstruction.com. In the confirmation email it stated the date and time, as well as that I had to be there on time to take part on the course. Unfortunately, I got the dates mixed up and missed my first day, during which the instructor Kevin (Illford branch) kept calling me. Once he got hold of me (several hours after the official start time), he politely informed me that the trainer had left and I would not be able to join the… Read Full Review

“1 Stop Instruction”

Written on: 09/07/2012

I completed my CBT, DAS and ERS with 1 Stop Instruction. All three courses were excellent. They were run with efficiency and professionalism and the instructors were fantastically knowledgeable and experienced. On all three courses, I really felt that I was progressing far beyond the prescribed syllabus. Rather than learning what needed to be done just to pass a test at the end, I felt I was actually becoming a better road user and better rider - as well as knowing what needed to be done to… Read Full Review

“The Best CBT ive done !”

Written on: 29/06/2012 by Julie789 (1 review written)

It can be intimidating for a woman to come for a CBT course knowing that the instructor will probably be male and so will the other bikers. I have done my CBT before so this was the second time and it was much more enjoyable. The instructor was friendly and made me feel capable and confident. He was a patient with a great teaching technique and manner which put me at ease. I have already recommended to one of my friends who wants to get a scooter… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2012

Have not rode a bike in years but the instructors were first class and very helpful Training is spot on and ienjoyed it very much the day is full on ( bring a sarnie and a drink) I think the best part is when they take you out on the roads you are in radio contact all the time which is so handy as you will forget to turn your indacators off plus they only take 2 at a time onto the roads The topic of the high way code was great as you think you know it all( I bet you don't) One more thing… Read Full Review

i recently attended the DAS course with 1stopinstruction. weather was horrendous didnt stop raining but hey s*"t happens. the training was fantastic, cav taught all the skills necessary to a very high standard, from the tricks to make mod 1 easier, he also covered any weak areas in my road riding, and the tricky areas, the examiners will try to catch you out on the mod 2 test. all the training was delivered in a professional manner at the highest possible standard. the facilities were… Read Full Review

“Makes me sick!”

Written on: 30/03/2012 by bigballbag (1 review written)

AVOID Firstly, I wanted to do a CBT on a manual bike, and I have zero experience on bikes. Apparently, this is fine according to their website. My instructor (Peter) said from the very start, I should do use an automatic, not because of anything professionally, but just so he can finish quicker. Of course I said no, but the 3 other people there at the time who all had experience on bikes agreed, and already I was alienated. He made them ride first, and then tried to explain how to ride on a… Read Full Review

“These guys are a bit arrogant and I would say rude. ”

Written on: 11/12/2010

These guys are a bit arrogant and I would say rude.
I booked a course and then (because really they're sort of in the middle of nowhere was late. If you're late they turn you away. Fine. But then they charge you the entire cost OVER AGAIN, when you want to re-book. Not even a 10% discount! Basically, I think they count on people not showing up so they can skin people. If you negotiate they treat you quite badly. Shame on them. If this is any indication of how they approach clients in general… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2013

I totally agree with with you. The instructor was very aggrogant. He got encouraged me (greedy for money?) to do my CBT, theory test and A2 test all in 3 weeks, even though I had never been on a motorbike (I ended up failing my A2 test, what a surprise). For our CBT he took us around the motor cyle shops in the near by areas, conversed with the people in the shop for a lengthy period of time, pretty much showing us he was a man who has contacts in the motorcyling world. He made many put downs comments all of the other men and I who where learning. One of which were how we 'are not natural riders', 'you'll be lucky to pass the way you ride' and he 'passed when he was 18' bla, bla, bla, blar, all this after he got our money! He made negative comments about 'Academy Motorcycle Training' their rivals for no reason (I actually went to them after waisting my money at '1 Stop' and they were brilliant at teaching, ironic). All in all poor advice was given, I felt uncomfortable and angry, ripped off. That's just my honest experience.

I agree with the comment about the instructor being 'arrogant'. The bald ethnic instructor with a crash injury scar to his eye. He made many put down comments to the other ethnic trainee and myself, how 'you are not a natural rider', 'you'll be lucky to pass', 'you can't ride'. For our CBT he took us to the nearby motorcycle shops and spent time talking to the staff there, explaining to us how he 'knows a lot of people around here and in the motorcycling community', 'how he passed at 18 years old', bla, bla, blah. I was duped into doing my CBT and A2 test with '1 stop' within 3 weeks after speaking to this instructor and stupidly paid upfront. Bad advice. Too greedy for money. I didn't pass anything, the CBT 'failed due to poor clutch control' and the A2 test down to inexperience (no surprise). After failing, I asked about 'Academy motorcycing training' and he was very negative about them. He wanted me to retake my CBT with '1 Stop', but I instead went to 'Academy motorcycle training' after two days of failing and passed because I was trained on how to correct my errors by their instructor. I felt ripped off, uncomfortable/angry after my experience with '1 Stop'. My advice to the instructor is 'Stop' and think about how you are going to help and train people '1'st.

Wow, I didn't know bike schools could hire such rude people. If you don't mind me asking, which center did you use i.e. what local area.

Got my CBT with 1 Stop instruction in Hainault but wont be recommending them to anyone else. The instructor we had was terrible - more interested in telling us how great he was on the bike and how we would never be as good as him than actually imparting knowledge. The website says not to worry if you've never ridden a bike before but the guy we had (Peter) was very impatient with us, agressive, didn't instill us with confidence, kept threatening to stop the course if we didn't start to pick up… Read Full Review

Great training and probably the best CBt i have attended. The instructors put safety above everything. i don't understand how people complain for failing when they have no knowledge of the highway code, especially wehen they are told they must know this before attending. A fellow pupil with me did not know what a no entry sign looked like, and then was complaining because the instructor would not let him ride on the road. I think the instructor was absolutley right not to let him on the… Read Full Review
