You couldn't find better training than at Shireoak. These guys are brilliant instructors and don't just teach the basics to get you through the test, they actually teach you how to be a good and safe rider after you have passed. Highly recommended.

If I could give this place more than five stars, I absolutely would! My whole experience with Shireoak and its instructors has been phenomenal. Paul has trained me from the very beginning - seeing me from my CBT, all the way through to the successful completion of my Mod 2. The training is differentiated and tailored to indiduval needs, enabling progression at an appropriate pace for each individual. During my training, I was always made to feel relaxed and at ease, and most importantly confident of my own skills and ability. Paul is an exceptional teacher who is empathetic, patient and has an evident passion for his students' learning. Paul will not just teach you the basics of passing a test - he will teach you lifelong, invaluable skillsets which a safe rider should encompass.

Excellent motorcycle training...Paul is absolutely brilliant he is a natural at teaching people to ride a motorcycle properly,so knowledgeable.
He is so patient and calm when he teaches you..Got me through my mod 1 and mod 2 1st time and within a couple of months..
Because he trains you to a such a good standard it makes the test seem easier..
I looked around when trying to find an instructor and i am so glad i went to shire..
The reason was the reviews and it soon became apparent why they have such good reviews.
The whole team are brilliant only had my lessons with Paul but the rest of the team seemed just as professional and skilled.
Even the ladies that work there are so friendly and helpful nothing is too much for them if they can help you(Kellie and Lizzie).😁
Oh and paul makes a great cup of tea and even gives you his biscuits..👍
Thanks for everything guys feel like i have some new friends..👍

Being older in years I struggled with my CBT but Paul with his expert tuition and experience helped me through it step by step. If you want to learn to ride a motorcycle, go no where else. The guys at Shireoak MT are professional and experienced to deal with any situation but, also make you feel welcome and comfortable. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I will be back for further training.

What an experience from start to finish. I started by taking my CBT, passed first time, Theory, passed 1st time, 3 lessons later on a Kawasaki 650 as I was taking direct access , ready for mod 1 , passed 1st time, 3 lessons later and ready for mod 2, again passed 1st time. The staff at Shire oak are spot on and will always advise the best way to go, they even put 2 lessons in 1 as I was capable on a 650 saving me around £65.00. They also worked round a knee operation I had but still kept me on track. The instructors are clearly very experienced and very patient and understanding and always go the extra mile to explain clearly where you are going wrong. I couldn't help notice that these guys have received a 1 star review which surprised me and after reading what was mentioned I could easily relate to what the car driver was saying. During all lessons I had, I never once felt I was not in safe hands, even when Paul moved across me to block car drivers that were trying to squeeze into a gap which would have caused me to have to break hard and reduce my breaking distance and also come between myself and an instructor that I pretty much needed to be close to in order to follow instruction. In my view and the fact that I was actually on that ride the instructor did absolutely nothing wrong , in simple terms Paul could see a potential danger and put himself into a position in order to protect his students and as already mentioned I always felt safe and protected.
Some might think that I would write this review just because I am happy to have passed, however as I am a senior operations manager as a profession I know quality within the work place when I see it and believe me if I felt threatened at any time within my learning journey I would definitely say.
If you are thinking of taking your bike test I would highly recommend these guys. Spend time wit the office team to work out your plan and then go for it, you will no regret it.
Great job Shire oak and thank you.

Amazing motorcycle training company, friendly staff so helpful in teaching what you need to learn.. I was a nervous wreck when doing my CBT and even more so doing my DAS but they are so friendly and make you feel at home when going on lessons... I'm so happy I went with shireoak because now this is my 2nd home and even tho they helped me pass first time on mod 1 and 2 I will always visit them because they really truly are amazing people. Thankyou Shireoak for everything and making me a safer rider!

I remember Shireoak Motorcycles being on the Annex years ago, came here almost 10 years later to find the same great staff running the business. The instructors are very informative and helpful and the lessons are reasonably priced. They are extremely accommodating for those who work shifts which was a real bonus.
They also offer additional help when you pass, Bikesense and Advanced if that's you're ticket.
Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to get out on two wheels! I went from never being on a bike (as the rider...) to full direct access licence in just over 3 months!

So far Yvonne and the trainers at Shireoak have been amazing. Very patient and undsrstanding on every level. Three weeks ago I'd never set foot on a motorcycle, now I am confidently riding round on my 125 having passed my CBT with them and I'm now well into the training for my Mod 1, booked for mid May. I can't recomend these guys highly enough, top of their field with fantastic and very competitive pricing!

Did my CBT as a first time rider on Saturday with great instructors. All staff that I met were friendly and welcoming.
They take time to watch your skills and give you advice on how to improve.
Will be using for Full licence training
Thanks again, especially to Mark and Nigel for getting me through the test.

Having never ridden a bike in my life, I was advised how good Shireoak motorcycle training was.
And I couldn't be more happier the instruction was clear and I was shown everything I needed to know
They even loaned me all the gear and bike
Yvonne was great made booking and paying easy
Paul gave me a two hour assessment to set me up for my CBT,and the following week Mark took my CBT I felt at ease riding on the road for the first time ever and really enjoyed it
All the people who work here are highly knowledgable and made me feel confident
Obtaining my CBT at the first attempt
got say I am still buzzing and would use shireoak motorcycle training in the future maybe sooner than I thought I would
Thanks guys keep up the good work and high standards

Very friendly establishment. I found them through a google search and deemed them to be the best near me. They provided all the clothing and equipment needed, they took riders safety very seriously and were clear in communicating to me at all times. Positive experience in doing my CBT.

Completed my CBT today, no stress and was enjoyable. The instructor was very informative and had a lot of patience, made it more comfortable and relaxed. Would definitely recommend to others that want to do any hand of motorcycle training.
