Best I can suggest is go and have a chat with them, see what they offer and if you like them.


The one I'm at (again wrong end of the country I'm afraid!) you find on a Sunday at 3ish when everyone gets back from lessons, there's often 2 or 3 ex students hanging about having a chat and showing their new bikes/parts/gear to the instructors. The fact they come back for a chat even after they pass, I take as a good sign :D

Depending whereabouts west of Reading you are:


I did my CBT with Motag who work out of a shipping container in the corner of Makro's car park. No major complaints at all, found them through Get On and liked them enough to go back to do my CBT with them, I just didn't get the same vibe with them I got instantly with the place I did my full test.


If you can get across a bit further I did my full test with Pinewood motorcycles between Bracknell and Crowthorne, absolutely fantastic, and I can very highly recommend them but it might be quite a way for you.

If you have not yet decided on a school yet, give Abbey a call, speak to Jim the owner and tell him that I recommended you.


He has a good training site, a good pass record and will take all the time you need without ripping you off.
