An incredible experience! Came with no knowledge about the roads or bikes, but with one-to-one training I managed to complete my CBT. Massive thanks to Tom and Dan for all the support. Would highly recommend to anyone who's a novice to the biking world.

Thanks to all at Shires I managed to pass everything from CBT to Mod 2 first try and with no faff. They were really helpful in fitting in tests and training around my work and all the guys know their stuff inside out. The bikes are all brand new and easy to get to grips with.

Having just completed an Enhanced Rider Training day, I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone.Ian my Instructer was quick to put me at ease and within 15 mins on the road had me changing my positioning for better views of the road ahead.Any problems or bad habits were pointed out to me in a friendly manner and I am sure I am now a much safer rider.Thanks to Ian and everyone at Shires Motorcyle Training.

Having never ridden a motorcycle previously, I have now completed my CBT with Shires. The whole experience was great and the tuition was first rate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.

It was superb and memorable experience with shires-motercycle-training company. They have every good and experienced trainers who train you from first point to the last point of the motorcycle learning. They are teaching you all the theoritical as well as practical knowledge of riding and also guide you the ruls of the UK road. I was done my CBT under the Mr. Pritesh he was a very good knowledge and experience about the riding and he was guide me fromall angle and they all has very good and friendly nature..
Thanks to be a part of my life's First Motorcycle teacher..😃

lee harvey commented on 16-Aug-2017 09:27 PM5 out of 5 stars
Had all tests from CBT to mod 2, which i passed today. All the staff at Shires were extremely friendly and very helpful, Cracking sense of humour aswell. thank you to everyone at shires and to my instructors for my mod 1 and mod 2, Andy and Dan..........
Kpatrick commented on 11-Aug-2017 10:08 PM5 out of 5 stars
A huge thank you to Dan for my CBT today. An excellent instructor- down to earth and gives very clear instructions. I like his style of teaching. As a shorter lady he gave me confidence to ride my bike unaided. Right so I better get back to the kitchen where I belong haha.... Highly recommend Dan as an instructor. Cheers
Steve Picker commented on 05-Aug-2017 01:43 PM5 out of 5 stars
I can't recommend this enough! Having not rode a bike for some time, I thought it would be a good idea to get some one-on-one tuition, and I couldn't of been more right!

Ian my instructor was great! I learnt subtle yet critical things that have made me a safer and smoother rider. Ian made me totally rethink my rode positioning and as a result I have a more increased presence on the road, allowing me to obtain more information about the conditions around me and therefore make the correct decisions!

Being subsidised by the council also means this is fantastic value for money!

If you are considering it, I highly recommend it!
Sally Hurst commented on 26-Jul-2017 05:48 PM5 out of 5 stars
Had a great few hours renewing my CBT with Ian. Lots of great advice to make me a better and more confident rider.
Paul Gundry commented on 25-Jul-2017 11:37 PM5 out of 5 stars
Thank you to everyone at Shires for the excellent training from CBT to the mod 2 test, I learnt so much and passed first time a very big thank you to all of you for making it so an enjoyable and educational experience
Reece Porter commented on 19-Jul-2017 08:11 PM5 out of 5 stars
Recently completed the 1 day Enhanced training with Ian. It was completed 6 weeks after passing my Mod 2 test. After riding 1k miles on my own bike I was lacking confidence in the corners and found myself hesitating. After the enhanced training and with all the pointers and advice from Ian I feel much more confident on the bike which in turn has led to enjoying my bike even more.

Ian is a great instructor, and as always the team at the Shires are brilliant. Once again, thanks Ian.

I cannot recommend Shires highly enough for all your motorcycle training needs.
Dayna Riley commented on 16-Jul-2017 06:48 PM5 out of 5 stars
So chuffed to finally be on two wheels! Thank you to the incredible patience and humour of Prit our instructor who made it a funny and really well rounded day, and Teresa who is so well organised, polite and friendly, helping you with all the information you need. Can't wait to do my DAS!
Joe Higham commented on 11-Jul-2017 04:09 PM5 out of 5 stars
Would like to say a huge thankyou to the whole team! Espically Dan for getting me through my mod 1/ mod 2 first time! Couldn't fault the shires one bit! Enjoyed every bit of riding I did with Dan! And made me very confident on a bike! Thankyou!
Lee green commented on 05-Jul-2017 05:43 PM5 out of 5 stars

Simon commented on 20-Jun-2017 06:57 PM5 out of 5 stars
Completed my enhance/back to biking course yesterday and what a fantastic day. I haven't ridden in about five years and wondered if it was maybe too late but after a day with Ian he has restored my confidence, giving me tips and knowledge to make me a safer, better rider.
Ian is an amazing instructor, patient, experienced and so knowledgeable I can't thank you & your colleagues enough. I fully recommend this course to everyone , thank you once again !
Simon commented on 20-Jun-2017 06:41 PM5 out of 5 stars
Completed my enhance / back to biking course yesterday after a five year break from biking. What a fantastic day, I've come away with so much more knowledge , tips and most importantly confidence. Ian is a great guy, so knowledgeable, experienced and a fantastic instructor, I recommend this course 100% to everyone , thank you so much !
Garry ramp commented on 16-Jun-2017 06:09 PM5 out of 5 stars
Just complete an advanced riding day with Ian, want sure what to expect but it was worth every penny. I found the there are things I've been doing wrong for years, and I've learnt so many better techniques and valuable lessons today. I did this primarily because I'm scared of corners, I take bends and roundabouts at a snales pace. Note u feel so much better, by the end of the day I was cornering much more confidently, and even Suprised myself hour much better and smoother my riding was after only 6 hours. I'd recommend this to EVERYONE with a bike, it was the best £60 I've spent, so much so im going back next year to do it all again and brush up on even more. It can only make you a better and safer rider. So.. So reading this and go book a session! My only regret about today is that I didn't do it hard ago... Thanks to all the guys at the Shires, and especially Ian for giving me back my joy of biking..
Ian and Sam Robinson commented on 07-Jun-2017 12:44 PM5 out of 5 stars
The other half of the duo passed today
Many thanks to shires for their patience
Dan is the man again
Magic commented on 30-May-2017 04:09 PM5 out of 5 stars
Took my cbt here and I tell you what an awesome experience it was. Grate bunch of instructors making it all fun. Definitely recomend.
Reece Porter commented on 24-May-2017 08:25 PM5 out of 5 stars
Over the last two months I have completed my DAS with the Shires Team. My CBT, CBT+ Mod 1 and Mod 2 training has been with Ian who is a great instructor and clearly explains everything and tells you how it is.
I cannot recommend the whole team at Shires highly enough. If you're thinking of any training then give the team a call.
Simon Waite commented on 20-May-2017 04:34 PM5 out of 5 stars
Yes I passed all my tests and could ride a motorcycle ,but until I completed the enhanced rider scheme with Ian,I hadn't realised how little I actually knew. Extremely worth while and informative course ,riding technique tips were invaluable as was the additional safety information.Thank you to all at the Shires and especially Ian
Jordan Houldsworth commented on 11-May-2017 07:09 AM5 out of 5 stars
Absolutely Outstanding Staff and equipment at shires motorcycle training, i would highly reccomend to anybody wanting to start riding a motorbike. Driving lessons are a pain in the a**e but i enjoyed every minute of the bike training. Special shout out to Colin Ainsworth, thankyou for getting me through my mod 1 and 2. Wish the team all the best and thanks again
Charlie Tranter commented on 06-May-2017 09:52 AM5 out of 5 stars

Mark Gray commented on 01-May-2017 10:20 PM5 out of 5 stars
Myself Mark and my friend Barry had the great pleasure in doing our crash course CBT on Sunday 16th April. Our instructor for the day was Ian, he was a true professional and a credit to your company! His knowledge and experience that he shared with us was fantastic! Looking forward to meeting all your team again, we had a great day! Thanks a lot!
Azpal commented on 28-Apr-2017 06:48 AM5 out of 5 stars
I would recommend shires motorcycles training centre they have the best group of instructors that are patient and help you learn at your pace. Whether you have experience or not they will help you reach the license you are aiming for. Great customer service everyone has a great sense of humour; would always recommend them.
Boris commented on 26-Apr-2017 05:46 PM5 out of 5 stars

Aisling commented on 22-Apr-2017 06:25 PM5 out of 5 stars
I've just done my CBT renewal and found everyone at Shires extremely friendly. After Ian rebuilt (lol!) part of my bike to make it roadworthy, all went smoothly! I felt completely confident and relaxed under his guidance, worked through some things I'd been struggling with, and felt a much more able rider on my way home!
Garry Smart commented on 18-Apr-2017 12:31 PM5 out of 5 stars
Came back to bikes after 28 years, much changed. From CBT through to Mod 1 & 2 The team were great. Fast tracked through MOD 1 on Tuesday Mod 2 on Friday with intensive tuition before Mod2 on Friday morning. Always encouraging and although all the serious stuff is covered all the training was enjoyable and you look forward to the next bit after finishing the last. Would I recommend the Shires team? with out a doubt first class. Thanks Guys rocking a 1200cc Sporster some 16 months later.
Alex commented on 30-Mar-2017 10:40 AM4 out of 5 stars
Had a day out with Ian on the enhanced rider training. Took us to some nice country roads and taught us a thing or two. Great day

I would just like to start by saying a huge Thank you to the Shires team, they have been brilliant throughout my Direct Access Scheme and I can happily say I passed Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time.
The tuition I received was fantastic and informative and I was made to feel relaxed, which helped me build my confidence out on the roads on the bike!
The team themselves are very welcoming, easy going individuals, who are professional and want the best possible out come for each rider.
I couldn't recommended Shires any higher they have been absolutely brilliant!
I would just like to say a final thank you to Tom, Dan, Pete, Ian, Andy and Teresa. Il see you all soon for my Enhanced Rider Scheme.

Tom.

I passed my CBT yesterday. Ian led the training and you couldn't of asked for a better instructor. The whole team at Shires are brilliant.

I have booked in for the CBT+ course next week to have a 3 hour taster on a 600cc bike. Once my Theory test is done I shall be booking my Mod 1 & 2 with Shires asap.

I cannot recommend Shires highly enough!!!

mark holyland commented on 18-Feb-2017 09:13 PM5 out of 5 stars
After passing my bike test and spending time riding, I decided to take my enhanced riding test. something that every new rider should do after getting use to your machine this allows you to iron out any problems you have, but also shows how to be more competent rider. Thanks to ian for a great day.......
dean commented on 11-Feb-2017 08:58 AM5 out of 5 stars

I could not recommend Shires enough, i have recently taken my CBT with them and I would like to mention Ian, Dan and Pritesh in particular for being so patient and reassuring with me!
I now feel confident and happy on a moped and will be recommending Shires to more people.
Thomas Sherwood commented on 04-Jan-2017 09:46 AM5 out of 5 stars
I have had a great experience with Shires. In September I decided I wanted to do my CBT. The course was very informative and gave me the skills I needed to ride a 125 safely on my own. A few months later I decided I wanted to do my A2 licence. The training for Mod 1 and 2 was fantastic and I now have a full Licence! I will be back again to do my A licence with them in 2 years’ time.
Ian and Sam Robinson commented on 21-Dec-2016 04:33 PM5 out of 5 stars
Absolutely fantastic did the cbt plus today with my son
The staff are superb especially Dan and Theresa
Will definitely be doing full licence 2017
Many thanks again
Shane commented on 20-Dec-2016 12:55 PM5 out of 5 stars
This is my second time doing a CBT with Shires, both times I received excellent tuition, useful advice. Interesting issues to consider / be aware of and it has made getting back on two wheels a great experience. I'm not easily impressed but the tuition really was good!
Simon levett commented on 12-Dec-2016 03:46 PM5 out of 5 stars

Shires took me from motorcycle novice to full licence holder in a really short time frame. They provide a really friendly, professional service that I would recommend to anyone. Special thanks to Dan & Andy for their mentoring through MOD 1 & 2. It's been a great way to start my motorcycling career.
Jonathan Hight-Warburton commented on 07-Dec-2016 05:25 PM5 out of 5 stars
CBT to Mod 2 in just a few weeks. Excellent, patient, well presented and most importantly, fun training. Thank you, Theresa, Dan, Andy and all the rest of the guys at Shires, I'd recommend you to anyone. I'm off to eBay now to start bike shopping!
Jack Graham commented on 26-Nov-2016 03:41 PM5 out of 5 stars

Took me a bit longer than normal, but all the instructors were brilliant, very patient and helpful. Cant thank them enough, the CBT may just be a small course, but its been huge for me.
Anthony Brewin commented on 07-Nov-2016 09:17 PM5 out of 5 stars
CBT, Theory, Mod 1 and Mod 2 all done first time between August and September. I was very nervous about doing this bike malarky and wasn't sure it was for me. Now I'm all done waiting for the delivery of my first Yamaha MT09 Tracer. All thanks to the expert and patient teachers at Shires MCT. Cheers and see you for the advanced course soon.

Just completed my Direct Access Course today, very happy with Shires as instruction was 100% and training was easy to understand through-out.
Recommend anyone wanting to do there Bike Course to go for the Full Training Course.
S.Patterson commented on 21-Oct-2016 05:20 PM5 out of 5 stars
Took my Mod 1 this week with a pass, very happy with the instruction I have received and now looking forward to Mod 2 in a few weeks.
Gaz Cooke commented on 20-Oct-2016 01:04 PM5 out of 5 stars
I have just completed my Mod 2 test after undertaking the direct access course with Shires. From my CBT, though my Mod 1 & Mod 2 training, and finally to my motorbike tests Shires were absolutely brilliant. All the staff and instructors were very professional and knowledgable, but they also made the whole experience feel personal as well and not like you were just there as a paying candidate. Special thanks to Pritesh, Andy, Gary, and Dan for all the training and instruction but all the people there were brilliant. I really enjoyed completing my course with Shires and would thoroughly recommend them.
S.Patterson commented on 08-Oct-2016 11:39 AM5 out of 5 stars
I have just done the CBT PLUS, anyone that is doing there Bike Course - then its well worth the small fee to do this as an extra.
Had a great instructor who gave good advise ( where needed ) and I am now looking forward to the next part of my course.
Tej commented on 05-Oct-2016 11:11 AM5 out of 5 stars
Completed my CBT earlier this year with Pritesh, it was a great learning experience and I have been happily riding my little 125 for the past few months. Will definitely be doing my Mod 1 & 2 training with Shires. Also want to say thanks to Ian for all the advice and for answering my endless amount of questions.
roger williams commented on 26-Sep-2016 12:38 PM5 out of 5 stars
Needing to update my ERS for Leicestershire and Rutland Blood Bikes, I had a day's training/ assessment with Ian. His professional approach meant that initial 'nerves' were soon overcome. Throughout the day he offered a variety of tips about improving my riding, whilst his final feedback was delivered objectively and constructively. A really valuable day, and one I'd wholeheartedly recommend to any motorcyclist. Many thanks.
S.Patterson commented on 24-Sep-2016 04:05 PM5 out of 5 stars
CBT completed today as part of Direct Access Course, great fun and easy to understand instructors.
Now the course can begin as the 1st step is completed.
Kirk Clarke commented on 21-Sep-2016 04:46 PM5 out of 5 stars
Passed CBT with Shires. Fantastic experience. First time on a motorbike and the Staff are excellent. very patient and fill you with confidence. Gave me the option to change to an auto as i was struggling on a geared motorbike. Would definitely recommend and will be back for lessons on a geared motorbike. Thank you very much.
Morgan Spencer commented on 21-Sep-2016 04:26 PM5 out of 5 stars
Instructors are very friendly. They get the job done but can have a laugh at the same time. Highly recommend
Ed commented on 17-Sep-2016 09:17 AM5 out of 5 stars
I have recently completed my CBT here and the standard of tuition here was nothing short of excellent. The instructors work with you in small groups at your pace giving you really encouraging advice and guidance. They also provided very useful advice on what to do next following my CBT. I would recommend their services 100% and shall be utilising this service for the next stages in gaining my license.
Richard wykes commented on 14-Sep-2016 06:56 AM5 out of 5 stars
Took the enhanced scheme with Ian. Had a great day, a few things pointed out to me that I have took on board to improve my riding experience,got an A pass, I took this scheme after passing my test 20 years ago,we can all believe that we don't need any training but we can all learn something from doing this scheme. Ian is great
Louis Tomlinson commented on 07-Sep-2016 05:18 PM5 out of 5 stars
Fantastic service, great advice and there's always a laugh to be had. Renewing my CBT with Shires was a pleasure, can't wait to so my Mod 1 and 2 with them in September.
Anthony Brewin commented on 27-Aug-2016 10:40 PM5 out of 5 stars
CBT completed. I was apprehensive about getting on a bike for the first time but Tom (the boss) made me feel comfortable and had the patience of a saint
charlotte cooper commented on 24-Aug-2016 02:11 PM5 out of 5 stars
Before Sunday (21/08/16) i had never been on a bike, i was ridiculously nervous on the morning of my CBT. When i arrived i found the staff to be very helpful and calming, i had Dan as my trainer and was absolutely excellent with me. He could see how nervous i was and soon set me at ease. After a few struggles, after about an hour i was riding around great! He built my confidence up which is what i needed and was very complimentary.
I now want to take my full bike test!
Not sure why i was so nervous as it was a breeze, thanks to these guys. Defiantly recommend.
Ian and Sam Robinson commented on 18-Aug-2016 09:28 AM5 out of 5 stars
What a day

Very honest and down to earth
Will definitely be returning for more
Louise Hammond commented on 22-Jul-2016 11:13 AM5 out of 5 stars
What can I say, this training centre is truly amazing, I now have my full bike licence. Everyone is so helpful and supportive, especially Dan!, I cant thank him and all the guys enough, I would recommend the Shires to anyone wanting to do their bike licence all day long.... Thanks again!
Les Hastings commented on 13-Jul-2016 02:31 PM5 out of 5 stars
As a complete novice, i was looking for a safe, professional and effective training school locally in the East Midlands.
After my son and I completed our CBT, Mod1 and Mod2 all 1st time, and with a permanent smile on our face.. we knew we'd gone to the right place.. good luck Tom and the fellas :-)
Carol commented on 06-Jul-2016 02:02 PM5 out of 5 stars
Just passed by CBT, Mod 1 and Mod 2 in under a month, first time with the Shires. Dan is a fab instructor – funny, patient and supportive. I’d only rode a scooter on holiday before this so Dan brought me from a nervous, wobbly rider to a confident independent rider. It was an excellent experience and all instructors and staff are friendly and supportive. The Shires give five star service and training.

Well done guys.
Shane Randall commented on 01-Jul-2016 11:31 PM5 out of 5 stars

A big thank you to shires team. A professionally ran outfit who will go that bit extra to ensure you're ready for the open. Instructor approachable, clear and supportive. They are backed up with professional admin staff who will Bauer the package they provide is right for you.
Caroline Riley commented on 15-Jun-2016 08:16 PM5 out of 5 stars
I want to say thanks to all at the Shires for your support, patience and belief in me, especially Dan, Ian Tom and Teresa. Dan - thanks for believing in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. You got me through the whole process - CBT, Mod 1 and 2 – really can’t thank you enough, even for the jokes. Ian – thanks for your time when my confidence was low. Tom – thanks for your calm presence on the way over for my Mod 2, it helped keep my nerves at bay. Teresa – thanks for your kind words and support throughout the whole process. Thanks also to Ian and Tom for finding test dates that worked for me. Wouldn’t have done it without you. If anyone out there is thinking about returning to riding after a break (it has been a while for me) then don’t hesitate, do it and do it with the Shires. I should have done it ages ago!

Passed my CBT yesterday and still walking round with a grin on my face. Done half hour with Dan last week and it did not look like I was ever gunna ride without taking my feet off the floor but Dan believed in me and gave me the confidence I needed. Dan is the most funniest and patient guy I know. Ian was my instructor for the CBT and his knowledge, professionalism, patience and humour made it a really enjoyable day. I would recommend Shires every time and I cant wait to go back to do the Mod 1 and Mod 2. Thanks guys for making me believe I could do it.

The best company to learn with. The best characters to learn from. They were able to cater to my lifestyle and got me from zero to hero in just over two months! I'll most definitely be going back for the advanced rider course. Anybody considering getting training/license, you are at the right place! Thanks guys :)

Just completed a half hour taster at the age of 47 and I loved it!! Dan gave me tons of confidence (fab bloke with a wicked sense of humour and the patience of a saint) Booked in for my CBT next weekend. Thanks Dan

Russell Warren commented on 01-May-2016 04:17 PM5 out of 5 stars
I'm looking to return to biking, mostly for commuting and took the 6 hour course with Ian. The instruction was provided at a pace to suit me and by the end i was confident that i'd be safe returning to 2 wheels. Ian was very patient and encouraging at all times. Recommended.
Tracey Dale commented on 30-Apr-2016 10:14 AM5 out of 5 stars
I now have a full bike licence thanks to the training and support from Shires. I passed my Mod 1 and 2 first time. Being 4ft 10 and a bit this has been a challenge. Shires went out of their way to ensure that I had the opportunity to go for a full licence. Special thanks to Danny, Tom and Teresa
Warren pritchard commented on 29-Apr-2016 07:45 AM5 out of 5 stars
The staff are superb they will teach you all you need to know, follow what your told and you will pass.

Had an awesome time yesterday on my mod 2 (until the test and my brain decided to migrate although I still passed)

Dan my instructor helped inspire confidence and did everything above and beyond to help me pass , even rode past a couple of rock pubs with live gigs (I'm not from around here so getting to know new places is awesome)

The guys will make you feel like a person not a customer which is a rare thing these days.

I'll be back for the advanced course
Richard Stanley commented on 28-Apr-2016 11:04 PM5 out of 5 stars
Many thanks to Tom and his fabulous team for getting me through my Direct Access Training. U-turns have no fear for me now! A big thank you to Andy and Ian thanks for your patients, and special thanks to Dan. Your advise was always useful, criticism always constructive. "A couple of years more practice and I'll be giving your Granny a run for her money!" Please keep up the good work, you are all amazing people

I had never ridden a motorbike before and took CBT to full bike test over two weeks last summer with Shires. They were fantastic.

The instructors were friendly and knowkedgable, giving good insight and instruction. The courses were perfectly laid out and I did not feel rushed pressured at any stage yet felt fully prepared for all tests.

I have been safely riding ever since. Thank you for all your help, I cannot recommend you guys enough!

Just to say thanks. The Enhanced Riders Scheme course I attended on Sunday was a great way to learn further riding skills. Top marks for Ian, who gave me one-to-one professional instruction and guidance. I would highly recommend this course to others who have passed their full tests and want to improve their riding. You can get insurance discounts too.

Being 50+ years of age I got a full motorbike licence in the days before the CBT. I am Pretty much self taught.

Unable to afford a second car I purchased a motorcycle for the daily commute. As it had been over 15 years since I was on a motorcycle I decided some refresher training was in order.

My instructor was Ian, who in his own words “speaks his mind”.
I found his instruction refreshing, dealing with even the smallest detail and his feed back was informative.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Shires Training.

It is my intention to go back in a few months to do my advanced rider training.
Helen Abrams commented on 18-Jan-2016 03:04 PM5 out of 5 stars
Had such an amazing day! I'd like to thank Dan and Ian for getting me past my fear of turning! And an extra special thanks to Steph for having me on the road and helping me complete the CBT 1 to 1! It was bitterly cold but got through it just fine! Thanks so much!

Couple of months ago i could not ride a motorbike to save my life and had to do the CBT twice as I was so bad. BUT with the amazing instructors support, patience, guidance, positivity even I was able to pass the Mod 1 and Mod 2 first time round. The team genuinely love what they do with a passion and it is very clear when working with them. Massive thanks to Tom and the team especially Pritesh for CBT, Andy, Steph and Gareth for Mod 1 and Dan for Mod 2. Loof forward to the advance course. cheers. Ahmed

I can't praise Tom and the team highly enough. From having no motorcycle experience at all, I made contact in April and the team have coached me all the way through to get my full license, passing both my mod1 and mod2 first time.
I'll be back to see the team once I've got a bike and I'll look to improve my knowledge on their advanced course.

Thanks again all,

If you are serious about wanting to learn how to ride a a motorcycle, go to Shires. You will not regret it.

Did my A1 license with these guys and they were awesome. I'd had my CBT and been riding a Ped for a year and decided when I turned 17 that I'd like to do my A1 license. They taught me how to ride a heard bike (because I'd been on a Ped for a year) Passed my Mod 1 test first time with 1 minor and passed my mod 2 first time with 2 minors. Got to say that they taught me a lot in a small space of time and managed to get me to a level where I could sit my test. Very nice people and very friendly! Can't wait to do my A2 with these guys soon! Thanks a lot😁

Both my son and I recently did our CBT at the shires with Tom and Dan .I must say went we went in we were both nervous but that soon disappeared. They were fantastic and soon made us relax. Thanks to them both we passed our CBT and especially to Dan as he suffered a lot of pain that day. Dan your feedback was brilliant and the ride out in the country was needed . Will be back to do mod 1 as soon as we can . Definetly a brilliant team at shires .

The second time I've done my CBT with Shires Leicester. Very helpful bunch of guys. First time was with Steph

And the second time was with Dan who made me feel at ease when learning how to ride a geared bike. He was full of tips and guided the team well throughout the session, it was more fun than it was a test.

Thank you

Took my Test in August 2013 and from CBT to Full license in one time. Great team of instructors Alan, Dan, Iain, Steph, Tom and Pritesh. They have helped me to pass the test by explaining how to and why not. I recommend them to anyone looking for a motorcycle license. Many thanks to all.

Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in my passing my MOD2 Today(17/04/2015). Starting with Pritesh training me on a 125cc back in March,then another thank you to the comedy duo Andy & Steph who have got the patients of saints putting up with our mistakes on the training weekend. Thanks to Ian on the MOD2 training. And to Dan for the great advice on the assessment day and also when observing us when on the way to the test center. Really would recommend to any one who wanted to take their direct access. From start to finish the atmosphere was really relaxed felt like I had known them forever. The advice given is constructive but never make you feel stupid when you get it wrong. Also a big thank you to Teresa too. Thank you all very much you lot deserve the pat on the back as you did all the hard work.

Would recommend to anyone!

Massive thanks to the whole team, especially Theresa, Andy and Dan for all their support and words of wisdom. I'll definitely be back in a month or two for further training and cannot rate them highly enough.
Many thanks!!

I'd always wanted to ride a bike but never had time to. Now in my forties I thought it was about time I did. Did my CBT and DAS with the guys and passed everything within a couple of weeks. Dan and Andy really were great and patient. The guys really explained everything well, clearly and used their experience to give tips and tricks when on the bike (but...Dan, the jokes are bad mate!). Can not recommend them enough. Cheers guys 😀
Alex Pashley commented on 23-Mar-2015 01:30 PM5 out of 5 stars
I have never ridden a motorcycle before, until yesterday (22/03/15). I had the best experience. Pritesh our instructor was brilliant, very patient(emphasis on the word patient), at one stage I'm sure he wanted to bang his head against a brick wall! lol. Right from the beginning back to basics,step by step well explained from handling the bike off its stand to the controlled stop/emergency stop. Felt really comfortable, no pressure a really relaxed environment . Would really recommend these guys if your thinking about doing your CBT (STOP THINKING BOOK IT!). I Just need to remember to cancel my indicators eh Pritesh! lol

Took my CBT today, started off nervous but Dan and Ian made me feel very relaxed. Helped me understand the course and feel very confident and safe really quick. Dan is a very funny and helpful tutor same with Ian. I passed and am very proud of myself. I will be going for a full licence with 12 weeks.
5☆ service
5☆ tutors

I recomend everyone to choose Shires.

I Done my CBT on the 14th February, the experience was truly excellent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any friends or family. I will certainly be doing further training with shires as I progress to getting a full licence

After 15 years of holding a full UK Motorcycle license I decided to enrol on the Enhanced Course. Instructor Ian Rollins took me out for the day, and it was fantastic!!! I feel more confident, polishing up old skills and learning some new ones. Fully recommend booking up.
Les Hastings commented on 03-Feb-2015 09:35 PM5 out of 5 stars
Did my CBT with Shires. Highly professional establishment with some great quality motorcycles and facilities etc. Dan was our instructor and like all of the team working there were extremely patient and good humoured with us novices. I would not hesitate to recommend this training company to all levels of student..
Andy Collins commented on 18-Jan-2015 04:37 PM5 out of 5 stars
Just finished my CBT training and it was excellent. I'd never even been in a bike before but it didn't feel like it. You go as fast or as slow as you need too which suited me. Can't imagine you could get a better experience anywhere else.

Completing my 3rd CBT with Shires was a brilliant experience. Doing the CBT RR course with Ian made it a lot easier to ensure I'm a competent rider while letting me brush up on my skills that have slipped over the years without having to sit through hours of the same old lesson. Everyone was as friendly and helpful as ever, and I would thoroughly recommend the Shires to anyone who wants to learn properly. Can't wait to come back and do my full test.
Antony Mitchell commented on 23-Dec-2014 11:22 PM5 out of 5 stars
Did CBT last saturday with no road experience and I was a bag of nerves. It all went great up until going to the roads, the cold and being that nervous were making me shake like crazy, but it was the most fun ive had in a long time. Pritesh was an absolute diamond. He didnt lose his cool when I was taking wrong lanes around roundabouts and he jus kept positive and kept my chin up. Had me do it til I got it right. Top bloke. See you in 2 years!
Scott Covill commented on 15-Dec-2014 11:45 AM5 out of 5 stars
Whilst still fresh in my mind I wanted to thank you and your team, especially, Alan, Danny and Steph who put up with me from CBT to my Mod 2. At the age 46 and not ridden in 25 years.
Not much makes me nervous these days but both mod 1 and 2 certainly did, but with these guys the time, patients, and knowledge they put into me helped and reassured me on test days.
Most of all however I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, great fun and lots of banter with people that clearly enjoy what they do. I’d recommend it to anyone and should have done it years ago.
This was all achieved in less than 2 weeks with the help from Tessa and Tom who arranged all the training and test days to fit in with my work schedule.
A big thanks also to someone that doesn't seem to get mentioned in any of the other comments and that is Sue in the Accessories shop who is always on hand for advice and makes a lovely coffee when you take a break while doing your training.

Big thanks again Scott Covill, one very happy man

What a fabulous bunch of people!!
My own criticism of myself, meant I held myself back, they gave me a good talking to, and now look at me....passed my MOD1 eventually, and just passed MOD2!!!! I couldn't be prouder of myself or of the organisation I chose to help me create my dream! Thank you everyone, for the coffees, the jokes, the new foot rests, the bruises, but your time and patience, your understanding and commitment, and you too Teresa, there is no amount of thanks that can cover my gratitude. Andy Marshall, the examiner, he's a top guy too!!
Luke Allen commented on 24-Nov-2014 07:40 AM5 out of 5 stars
Having just passed my DAS I had never riden on the road before but the instructors took it at my pace. I passed my CBT and both mod 1 & 2 first time and in little over a week. Good value for money and what a great bunch of staff. I couldn't be happier with the service.
Sarah Collins commented on 18-Nov-2014 05:58 PM5 out of 5 stars
After passing my test 10 years ago with Shires, I headed back to complete the Enhanced Rider Scheme. With Ian as my instructor, I have gained so much more confidence and trust in my bike than the previous 1,700 miles I've clocked up this summer. A great day with very helpful, knowledgable and friendly instruction. Top job again Shires.
Ash Gohil commented on 17-Nov-2014 01:50 PM5 out of 5 stars

I went from having ridden a trials bike once in a field (and falling off spectacularly) to passing my CBT, Mod 1, and Mod 2 within the space of two months. I wouldn't have had the confidence and skills to do it without the support of the Shires. Big thanks to your friendly, encouraging, and patient instructors and staff...I look forward to visiting soon on the Bonneville.
janys tardy commented on 03-Nov-2014 06:57 PM5 out of 5 stars
the trainers at shires are a straight talking bunch ......i recommend them in particular to any 'older ladies' like myself returning to 2 wheels after a long absence. very patient professional encouraging and clear instructors.
a big thankyou from the bottom of my heart guys . wasn't retro nostalgia -scooter hunting & now feel competant to enjoy it all over again .thanks to you. New women riders note - The Shires team are not judgemental they are dead serious about their training but the atmosphere is welcoming and they are genuinely friendly. wicked banter free (dont give dan a choc brownie cookie!).


pete howie commented on 01-Nov-2014 05:40 AM5 out of 5 stars
The staff at shires are both professional and friendly, the instruction I received whilst completing my CBT was effective and helped to build my confidence on the road. I would happily recommend shires to anyone looking at learning to ride.
Martin Tierney commented on 28-Oct-2014 09:43 PM5 out of 5 stars
I have just completed a DAS course with Shires and Mod 2 passed today. Like others have said in their comments this team are second to none in the way they apply themselves to getting the best out of everyone they train. From CBT to full license every step is guided, supported and delivered with humour (oh the banter is also second to none, Dan!) expertise and professionalism. Thanks to Ian and Dan for their guidance, to Stef for his company and encouragement on test day today and everyone else I have come into contact within the Team. Thanks!
Damian Burman commented on 27-Oct-2014 04:40 PM5 out of 5 stars
Just taken my CBT with Steph and want. Fantastic experience it was, you are put at ease from the moment you walk though the door. Everything is explained as in depth as you need and you only progress when you are comfortable with the previous task. Looking forward to coming back for my Mod 1&2. Will defiantly recommended 5*
Mark Hurst commented on 26-Oct-2014 03:43 PM5 out of 5 stars
I have just passed my CBT with Dan and have to say how much I enjoyed it. All the team make you feel relaxed and at ease, they don't rush you, give constant reassurance with expert advice and teaching. My confidence grown as the day progressed from Dan's knowledge, hints and tips.. I'm definitely going to book my DAS mod 1 and 2 with the shires as these guys will get me through and mould me into a safer and better rider.. Thanks again Dan!
Neha Patel commented on 19-Oct-2014 07:06 PM5 out of 5 stars
I did my CBT today with Tom and Dan and would just like to say what a fantastic course it was! I have had no previous riding experience at all but I felt so much more confident after the course especially with the extra help from Tom when it came those roundabouts! I would definitely recommend Shires to anyone wanting to have a go! No matter if you're a complete novice or just renenwing a CBT etc you're guaranteed a quality course and quality support!

i done my mod 1 and mod 2 course then went back for advanced bike riding. i found the instructors that i had were really good and helped me with my confidence. the three instructors i had was steph ian and alan the two best instructors that i had were steph and ian , you could have a laugh but still was professional doing their job. when i took my advanced with ian i thought i rode pretty well but having a break and a chat to ian, he pointed out where i could improove.
Chris commented on 10-Oct-2014 02:03 PM5 out of 5 stars
I went through the whole thing and did my DAS with this company. The instructors are world class. You will receive honest feedback and there is no beating around the bush. They'll teach you how to be safe and confident on the road. Strongly recommended.

Thanks to Shires I had a very pleasant journey towards getting my motorcycle licence... The new regulations affected me due to my age but Shires got me passed straight away before I turned 24 and then 1st time round again after I turned 24... Was a very smooth process and all credit goes to all the staff at Shires. Special thanks to my Instructors for getting me passed 1st time round even though I was fairly new to 2 wheels; Gareth, Stuart, & Specially Dan & Ian, phenomenal advice and teaching even though I only had them for a short ride I learnt a lot from Ian & Dan.

Many thanks again to the whole team at Shires

With special thanks to Pritesh and especially Dan, who having patience of a saint, I passed my CBT last Sunday. I originally booked a try on a bike as not ridden before, ever! Their knowledge and expertise was exceptional and I would recommend these guys to anyone who wishes to start a bike life! :)
I enjoyed every minute and now wanting to do theory and then Mod 1 and 2.
Watch out, I'll be back for more training for the bigger bike haha
Cheers guys, brilliant day :)

Passed my mod 2 test on August 1st. The training here is excellent with the contrasting styles of each instructor combining to make for a very enjoyable and knowledgeable experience. Special thanks to Alan and Dan who were my main trainers. Alan had to put up with me where I had no clue what I was doing and Dan help polish up all the little chinks in my armor, without these two I would not have passed and be the confident rider I am today. On a side note, I would like to thank Teresa for her best efforts to cover up my wound pre-test day and the course was able to be molded around my University studies =]. Many thanks again to all the staff for all your support and words of encouragement and I will look forward to seeing you guys again for my ERS in the near future.

Tell ya, the team here is awesome, big shout out to Dan who I did the cbt and mod1 with (you can't put a price on the banging guidance you provided man, nice one!), Steph who took me on the mod2 (thanks for hanging in there with me chap, you did a wicked job!) and Tom for giving me a call for the mod2 and finding me a slot to cram it in! So all, many thanks! I'll be back at some point for the Advanced! take care.

Many many thanks, especially to Stefan, Andy and Dan. They made the whole experience a lot of fun and so, although I was nervous their friendly, reassuring approach soon settled me down. These guys are extremely professional and knowledgeable. Their attention to every detail ensures that you learn to ride safely and know exactly what is required to pass all the elements of the test.
Excellent stuff guys - congratulations!

I decided to take the DSA course and what a experience! The guys there are brilliant, they are patient, hard working but most of all they know what they are talking about.
I've had experience on bikes before but even I thought 1 month of training would be a push but I got there passed CBT MOD 1&2 first time.
They are serious about the job in hand and will teach you at your own pace, it's very relaxed and the banter is wicked. Look no further guys.. I've spent my money wisely. I wanna personally thank Ian, Alan, dan and tom who have helped me on my way all giving me their own personal advise. Cheers guys !!

Whilst still fresh in my mind I wanted to thank you and your team, especially, Alan, Danny and Steph who put up with me from CBT to my Mod 2. At the age 49 not much makes me nervous but both mod 1 and 2 certainly did Most of all however I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, great fun and lots of banter with people that clearly enjoy what they do. I’d recommend it to anyone and should have done it years ago. I now need to decide what bike to get, what a decision!


  - Ben Said:

Did my cbt today great teAm thanks to dan for getting me through it would recommend to anybody thanks once again ben


  - Chris Wiseman Said:

The proof is in the test results and with Mod 1 and Mod 2 passed today with no minors, it is safe to say that Shires (and Dan in particular) did a great job! Did my training including a CBT refresher and both modules over the space of a few weeks and it was all really well delivered. From Tom helping to make the CBT more challenging through to Dan tailoring three days of off and on road training, they really managed to deliver a package that was right for me. Big thank you for the training and I’ll see you back for an Enhanced Course once the new bike is in the garage :)

Completed cbt yesterday with Dan. The course was packed with crucial information and delivered so well that for someone like myself (who has never been on the road before on a bike, or been on a bike…. ever!) boosted confidence enough to just get up and go! it has even got me considering buying another copy of the highway code just to get up to scratch (and i’ve been a car driver for 15+years!) The Team are faultless professionals in what they do with regard to service & safety, at all levels. I’ll be back sometime soon for the mod1 & 2! Anyone thinking of doing bike training, just phone in and book, its pretty awesome! Again, thanks for yesterday chief, bang on!

Absolutely 2nd to none training! Ian,Alan,Dan & Tom I can’t thank you all enough, having my full licence is a dream to me and it was made easy & fun by you guys with fantastic days out with you all! Very professional would recommend to anybody!


  - Darren Clayton Said:

Really enjoyed my days training for my CBT. Very friendly and informative, many thanks.


  - Georgia White Said:

Taking my cbt was a brilliant day,really friendly instructors who made me feel at ease when I messed up.. Made me feel confident to go out on the road and after their great banter and professional help I passed. Would recommend shires to anyone looking to get on a bike. Thanks for a brilliant day!


  - Madeleine Welland Said:

I followed in my brother’s footsteps in choosing Shires to complete my CBT and Direct Access course. I started in November and finished my Mod 2 at the end of January. I found the great teaching and high quality of on-road learning (with Danny in my ear via headset) led to a relaxed and confident approach to riding in my everyday life. I’m now sitting pretty on a Kawasaki ER6F, I’m looking forward to taking my refresher tests with Shires in two years time. I would highly recommend this company, the staff are friendly and efficient; they even wave when we cross paths!

  - Shyam Said:

Took my CBT with them a couple of years ago and then this month did my DAS training and passed first time on both Mod 1 and Mod 2. Great team of instructors and thanks a lot to Alan, Steph and Dan and Pritesh. And thanks to Tom for helping with adjustments to my schedule. A really great Training school and will be reccomending to others in the future!


  - Simon Said:

My friend Steve and I completed our CBT on the Yamaha 600s last Tuesday. We had a brilliant day – thanks Dan for the entertaining circuits of the site! On the road, we had a brilliant time with Ian – his patience (and honesty!!) made our day completely beneficial. I think Steve will never forget to turn his indicator off from now on (and I can still hear it)! We will both be back soon to complete our DAS training!


  - Andy Shirley Said:

Great bikers who really know their stuff – they also tell you ‘it’ straight – I did my CBT, Mod1 & 2 and passed all three first time thanks to these guys and their no nonsense approach – Thanks Steffan, Alan and Dan.


  - Simon Said:

Hi guys, just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you at Shires for guiding me through from CBT to my full licence. It has been a great laugh and I have learnt loads. Tom, Ian, Alan, Dan and Andy, you all gave such great advice, and for helping me pass my Mod 1 and 2 first time!


  - Kelvin Brearley Said:

I would like to say thank you to Ian, completed my CBT today really enjoyed it, :) next time will ride with visor down so don’t get face covered in flies. See you in a few months for my mod 1+2. Thanks again great team


  - Carl Said:

Really enjoyed my week training with shires, completed CBT and passed mod 1 & 2 with the fantastic support and advice from everyone there, great team, many thanks


  - Dene Said:

CBT & Mod1 completed through Shires. Very nice bunch of people very focussed on helping you ride safe and well.


  - Jeremy Said:

Full bike licence completed…I do not believe there could possibly be a nicer more friendly bunch of people. Just wow !! passed first time for each part of Mod 1 and 2. A big thanks to Dan and and the whole team at Shires :)


  - Kelsey Lear Said:

Yesterday i completed my full bike test :), I managed to pass all of the tests first time round and cannot thank the shires enough, without the help, advice and lovely people that work there i would have never got on a bike and now i will never look back!


  - Helen Mather Said:

Did my CBT yesterday and everyone there is fantastic. Put me at ease and really boosted my confidence. Went out for my 2hour road ride with Dan and he was brilliant and very funny and despite the problems I was having with my bike, he remained patient and kept me calm (even though I did loose him at one point!).He was constantly talking us through our journey and telling us what to look out for and keeping us safe from the crazy Sunday drivers that were out to kill us! I am now thinking about doing the mod 1 and 2 to get my full licence and will def go back to these guys, they made what I expected to be a really stressful day relaxed and fun which is what riding a motorcycle should be. Thanks so much guys for all your tips and help getting me on the road. If you are looking for motorcycle training then look no further…..brilliant.


  - Peter Underhill Said:

Did my Mod 1 & Mod 2 with these guys and WOW what a team!.
