What a great bunch. Felt relaxed and at ease. They went above and beyond to help. Mark was a real pro. I learnt so much in just one session. Well done mark.

Paul and the team have been fabulous in helping my achieve my MOD 2 pass. They’re all very approachable and knowledgeable and having started as a non rider, have made the whole process a very fun journey ! I would highly recommend them if you’re considering learning to ride. Many thanks again 😊

I went from complete novice to passing my CBT confidently in 4 days. They offer an additional 2 hour lesson before you take your test to teach the basic fundamentals of riding and this really helped me to develop my skills for test day. On the day of my CBT I had great on the road instruction, the guys pride themselves on developing safe riders. They I can't wait to go back to start learning on the bigger bikes. If you want to pass and feel safe whilst learning this is the place to go!

Great experience, definitely would recommend this place. The instructor I worked with was Mark for my CBT and he was really helpful. Makes you feel comfortable and teaches you not only how to ride but also how to ride safley on the road. Great instructors with a lot of experience and patience. Was nervous at first for my pre CBT but with there help I got through both days and passed.

Passed my MOD 1 10 days ago and my MOD2 today. Paul and his team really know their stuff and identify and explain the key areas that you need to work on to be successful. Great bunch of people and top notch training.

I passed my Mod 2 test earlier today, and I cannot thank ShireOak Motorcycle training enough.
All of the staff here are very friendly and one big
crazy family. They have always made me feel welcome and have supported me through all my lessons and tests.
Paul is a very patient instructor who works hard to ensure that you get the most out of your training. He is a natural teacher and provides you with the skills and knowledge to become a safe, confident rider. Having lessons with him has inspired me to further develop my riding and road craft.
I have enjoyed every second.
Thanks again to Shire Oak! Top marks from me

Passed my CBT last Sunday with Shireoak, I'm a novice, and they were brilliant - the whole team were really friendly and never made me feel out of place, and Mark was absolutely brilliant with masses of patience with my nerves. I did a few lessons with him before the CBT, and he was fab calming me down on the day itself. Really glad I chose to come here, will be back for my Mods 1&2

The best motorcycle training school around!!!! Paul and the team are amazing and professional in helping me achieve my goal of completing my motorcycle licence, they are so knowledgeable and patient with all the trainees, if anyone out there wants to do jus a cbt or full licence these are the guys to do it with.

I can't recommend these guys enough.. I started my lessons in May of last year in preparation for my CBT. Due to the level of thorough training I received I was totally prepared for my CBT. Now a year later they are continuing to support me in preparation for my Mod 1. I can't fault the service I have received.,but to the staff it's not just a service they provide. It's the constant support you receive to enable you to be the safest, confident and competent rider you can possibly be. I have had positive experiences with everyone. Neil has helped me enormously recently and I find the way he delivers the lessons is just perfect. The right balance of humour and encouragement, and still managing to get the job done. Thank you guys...

A little late in posting... I passed in November 2019!
I found Shireoak Motorcycling Training to be excellent. I was trained mostly by Paul, but I found all the instructors to be excellent. Took my CBT and my full licence with Shireoak with a year between them to build up my confidence. Paul is very patient and genuinely wants you to pass as quick as possible, but at the same time wants to see you do it safely. Getting the money off you was never the main objective, the objective was seeing you pass and pass safely!
I rode a KTM Duke 125 for a year after passing my CBT. Now I am riding a Kawasaki Z900RS, so a big step up!
Tea and biscuits were good, with a slight stray to the cafe next door for a full breakfast!
Thanks to you all!

A superb training establishment. Knowledgeable, patient, approachable and 100% professional. Paul and his team took me from CBT to Mod2 pass / full licence in 3 1/2 months! Thank you and I would thoroughly recommend Paul and Shireoak.
