What Our Customers Say
Having ridden bikes at 17/18 years of age and enjoyed every minute of it, marriage, house, kids all put a stop to that and some 30 years later, aged 48 years young, I decided I would see if I still had the buzz for biking so I decided to do my CBT in September 2016 and yes the buzz was back so I purchased a 125cc bike which I have ridden since then to get back into the swing of things until my desire for a bigger bike grew to the point where I decided to get my full A licence.
After an internet search of local riding instructors and telephone conversations with a few of them. most of which lasted no more than 5 minutes and was with someone on the other end of the phone who seemed very keen to take my hard earned cash without instilling me with confidence of either value for my money or more importantly value for my life learning to ride a bigger bike !
That all changed though when I spoke to Rachel at RMT who chatted to me for nearly 20 minutes and went through everything with me, informed me of the whole process from start to finish, answered everything I wanted to know and left me feeling inspired, completely at ease and definitely confident that my money was going to be invested wisely and my life was in safe hands – I was not wrong !!
I chose to have 3 days training for the Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests from RMT’s base in Tyseley, Birmingham, as it was closest to home and also as it would cover the area where I would eventually take my Mod 2 test so I would at least gain some knowledge of the roads that would be included in my test.
On each of the 3 days I had a different instructor namely Paul, Simon and Colin and on 2 out of those 3 days my instruction for at least half of each day was on a ‘one to one’ basis and each of the 3 instructors were equally incredibly knowledgeable, extremely friendly and very patient but each of them also took the time to share life stories and experiences, often funny, which made for a really relaxed environment in which to learn the serious stuff related to motorcycle safety and riding a bigger bike.
The 3 days were long and quite intense with plenty to learn but the amount of practical experience gained with ‘real’ time on the bike coupled with explanations on the ‘white board’ during lunch break and at the end of each day was also invaluable. The time on the actual Mod 1 test pad where I got to do 5 practice tests was a real bonus and invaluable to ensuring that when I arrived to take the test a few days later I knew exactly what to expect so I was far more relaxed and prepared and this certainly helped me to pass the Mod 1 without a single fault !!
After passing the Mod 1 test, Rachel then booked the Mod 2 for me and the date was just 2 weeks later so I did not have long to wait, in the interim period I practised what the guys had taught me on my 3 day course and when I found I had questions I needed answered I called Simon on his personal mobile phone, left a voice message and he called me back as soon as he could to answer my questions.
I was also able to email him with diagrams of ’roundabouts’ and questions relating to these and he replied with precise but detailed info to put my mind at complete rest and ensure I was ready for the Mod 2 test which just like my Mod 1 I passed with zero faults and comments from the examiner after the test on how good my ride was – all down to the superb tuition I received from Paul, Simon and Colin over the 3 day course and also after this by way of telephone calls and emails.
In short RMT are a superbly professional, customer focused, excellent and safe provider of motorcycle tuition and a company who I would recommend, without a moments hesitation, to anyone wishing to either embark on their motorcycling journey or those looking to further their ability and experience, I will certainly be booking with them again for further training as I start the next chapter in my motorcycling adventure.
