    review rating 5  My husband Glyn Duncan-Hughes recently passed both mod 1 and mod 2 first time with the ride academy. He has asked me to state that without the patience and absolute brilliance of how both Dave and Lee instruct the lessons he went of passed. After using 2 different schools in 3 years the ride academy is by far the most professional and friendly group of people from the instructors down to the office staff. What a brilliant riding school and any1 looking for the right training and not.just a riding school but a riding family look no further. Highly recommend to any1 wanting to ride. 5 star rating all day long

    review rating 5  Absolutely Top class. Very friendly, relaxed and fun environment created by the whole team at The Ride Academy. Dave and Lee were both fantastic instructors and will teach you how to be a great Motorbike rider for life, not just to get a test passed. If you are looking for any Motorbike training, from CBT to full licence, then look no further. Very highly recommended!!. Thanks again to the team at The Ride Academy.
