“Delighted to say that I passed my CBT and Direct Access training first time with A2B Motorcycle Training. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

Their instructors are really friendly, very approachable, thorough and go out of their way to help you pass. I used one of their motorcycles for my Direct Access test and was pleasantly surprised when I was given a virtually brand new, good quality bike to use for my test – which is typical of their fleet and not what you’d expect with other training providers. I’m now planning to use them again for advanced training lessons! Tony Roper, Knaresborough Glass

Haven’t rode a bike since 20year ago , booked in feb this year for my direct access , 6 week later I’ve now got my full... licence , (could of been sooner if not for my busy work life) , baz Pete and team were brilliant . Have to say I traveled over 35 mile passing many local riding schools on enroute ,
due to there reputation, and it didn’t disappoint

If you’ve found A2B Motorcycle Training, you’ve found your riding school. Brilliant experience from start to finish... with these guys. Great bikes and fantastic facilities. Friendly, knowledgeable, skilled instructors. Immense gratitude to Barry, Alex and Mark for the expertise and education to effortlessly get me through my DAS training and test days at the first attempt back in 2021. Awesome team, I already have and will recommend A2B to anyone looking to get on two wheels without hesitation.

Can’t recommend these guys highly enough. After a bad experience with another training school my confidence was shot to... the point I was thinking that bikes just weren’t for me. This was learning as learning should be, enjoyable and interesting.
Got a MOD 1 and a MOD 2 pass at the first attempt, Mark my instructor was great, a good laugh and very knowledgeable. Barry on test day equally as good.
Can’t thank you people enough.
Pints on me next time we meet, and keep up the great work.
Once again, thank you .

A fantastic experience! Previously used for a CBT a few years ago and it was a positive experience then! So much so... that a friend of mine and I drove up from London/Kent, just to use these guys! The tuition from Mark is brilliant and was very informative which helped to breed confidence in our riding ability. Barry and Alex were always on hand to help and answer any questions we asked and are very hospitable! I really can’t recommend enough. I passed the test with 0 minors thanks to these guys! The team are worth their weight in gold! Thanks all and looking forward to going on a ride out in the near future!read more

I came to A2B with no previous experience riding at all. Had my first lesson on 23rd April and received my CBT the same... day. Ten days later on May 3rd i passed my Mod 2 test. These guys are absolutely fantastic. Pete's instruction over the ear piece radio were clear & precise which helps you keep calm. Had 2 rides out with Barry whose instruction & patience was brilliant. Barry took me to my Mod 2 test in York. From the moment we left Tockwith i was at ease on what should be a stressful test. All in all i would 100% recommend A2B to get you riding. 10 days from scratch is proof.read more

“I’m not sure if I was pupil No. 1 or No. 2 back in 2010, but I’ve enjoyed watching the growing success of A2B over the years. I can’t say that I’m surprised how well they are doing, Barry was an absolutely Top Guy with the patience of a saint and long may your success continue”Paul Anson
