I first approached mike with the intention of doing the 5 or 15 hour course as I had previously ridden scooters and was confident of passing first time. Mike convinced me to take the £850 course with a guaranteed pass. Am I glad I did!
I ending up taking 4 mod 2 to pass. I never found riding the bike to be difficult but it was always a series of unfortunate circumstances involving others which I had no control over. Mike had been very patient and honoured the guaranteed pass without any complaint!
I am writing to pass on many thanks following my recent direct access course with you.
From day one, I was extremely impressed with your professionalism, knowledge and kindness. You have a unique way of making people feel at ease and at home, which is not only down to your personality, but clearly from your many years of experience as a professional motorcycle instructor.
Although I have to work varied shifts, you always managed to arrange convenient times and dates for the training rides. This is undoubtedly down to your forward planning, organisation and personal sacrifice.
I was particularly pleased, and surprised that the whole of my course was done on your well maintained Yamaha 600cc Fazers.
The training rides with you were extremely enjoyable, each one I looked forward to immensely. You make the instruction easy to understand, and your radio equipment is crystal clear.
In my role as an emergency services worker, I am required to drive to a very high standard. I found your instruction and training to that of an advanced level, with safety being your number one objective.
Both myself and my friend Mark Grant who also did the course at the same time, were over the moon when we both passed our tests first time, me passing with no faults and Mark with just one minor fault, not a bad result for two people who have not had to do a driving test for 20+ years !. This was purely down to your training and preparation. I can honestly say that I would not have passed my test without your tuition.
I would also like to thank you for the excellent Enhanced Rider Scheme that I did with you soon after passing my test. This has not only given me even more confidence and knowledge as a newly qualified rider, but also made a massive difference when I came to insure my new Honda 600 Hornet.
We both passed our mod 1 tests with zero faults.
Mike, once again thank you so much for your excellent tuition, it has been an absolute pleasure meeting you and learning to ride with you. I look forward to recommending you to as many people as possible. I hope to stay in touch and call in for a coffee and a chat on regular basis.
