I soon found there was absolutely nothing to be nervous about. My instructor whilst being professional made me feel at ease straight away and was very thorough in making sure we all understood exactly everything that was said and done from start to finish.
    The whole course was made to be enjoyable and i felt part of that course and not just a student taking his cbt.

  • The cbt i took was thorough and provided in depth off road training, before time was spent on the road.

    My training experience was rewarding, as i received my cbt certificate after the course. Before riding took place on the roads, the instructors made sure that riders were fully competant, knowledgeable and safe to ride. An enjoyable experience, one i would highly encourage others to take.

    by darren wallard
  • Great instructor very patient and knowledgeable. gave me confidence to get out onto the roads safely.

    by steve tizzard

  • I was very nervous about retaking my test as i had not used my scooter for over a year and had lost confidence. I spoke with them prior to booking and was offered a course with a maximum of 2 students including myself which was not offered with my original cbt centre.

    i was repeating my cbt as already have a twist and go scooter so i asked for the same bike on my re-cbt.

    i completed my course and was confident enough to ride my scooter again.

    by lynne copland
  • I returned to top notch training to do the direct access course close to 2 years after doing a cbt with them (no pressure!).

    I found the instructors patient and knowledgeable and the information provided got me through mod 1 and mod 2 first time. They helped me get comfortable on a bike and corrected errors i made in a friendly way. Simply and genuine helpful bunch. I recommend Top Notch to anyone whi is considering motorcycle training.

    by Tony s
  • The training was well explained and arranged for a time that was suitable with my shift work.

    I have had a CBT licence for 2 years and wanted to get my full licence to up the cc of my bike. i chose to go with Top Notch as i have used them for my CBT and used Tinklers for my servicing. They were extremely friendly and fitted my training in with my shifts. i was not pressured to take more training than was required so did not feel that i was throwing money away. the bikes used were YAMAHA MT-07, they were new bikes and were well kept and well maintained.

    Thank You

  • Top Notch is an excellent training school, very experienced instructors and staff, excellent availablility with training available 7 days a week. The training motorcycles are some of the best in the area. The yamaha MT-07 is a great bike to learn on and is an awesome bike in general, just read the bike reviews! It was even on MCN bike of the year! I did my Mod 1 and Mod 2 DAS with Top Notch who luckily managed to fit me in as i booke dlast minute during the peak season.

    Top Notch operate 1:1 instruction for DAS &A2, Mod 1 & Mod 2 which is far better and more personal than other training schools in the area who do 2:1 lessons or even 3:1 during Mod 1 (off road) practise…..Top Notch also book in practise slots on the test centre MMA so you get to practise the real thing a few days before your Mod 1… Highly recommended!!!!! Do your training with Top Notch, you wont be dissapointed!!!

  • I didnt have the confidence before my cbt but now i love my bike and use it constantly. I had had my bike for a year before plucking up the confidence to take my cbt but now i ride everywhere and i love it!!! excellent instructors and instruction. weather was atrocious but no-one could help that. good instructuion and very thorough. gives you the confidence to just get out there and ride!!!

  • A very good course with knowledgeable instructors. at no point did i feel unsafe or not looked after. My individual needs where focused on to ensure progression. Very hard to fault – the excellent personallity or the trainers ensure the valuable and constructive feedback given is delivered in a friendly and warm way. Relaxed atmosphere throughout. they want to see you succeed. Getting on a motorcycle for the first time was daunting i have to admit. However the training staff have been encouraging and thorough with their instruction which enabled me to build confidence extremely quickly. I am very pleased tpo have learnt with this organisation and would higly recommend them to anyone wanting to learn to ride.

On 19th January 2013 the law regarding motorcycle licences changed. The entry age remains at 16 years old for mopeds and 17 years old for 125cc bikes. For bigger bikes however, it has been split into two categories where you progress to unlimited power after a period of probation and an additional test. You can start with bikes limited to 35kW (46.6bhp) at 19 years old, after 2 years probation and an additional test, you can achieve Full Category A entitlement.

If you are 24 and older the new rules don’t affect you – Direct Access entry age is now 24.

This website contains all the information you may need about the changes in the law. If you do find you have questions however, we have training experts available at the end of a phone.
