Tom Tom

Kelly Jordan

Fantastic instructor (Steve) who is very knowledgeable, relaxed and extremely professional. I cannot recommend this training school enough.

David Cooper

Great lads, very enjoyable day - very professional and informative. Thanks team Blacktop

Paul Holmes

Steve is a great guy who instantly puts your nerves at rest. Easy going team but professional with it. I had training before with another company but this far outweighs them. They instill confidence in your ability and that in turn makes you feel comfortable and eager to get back on the bike. Good training area for both off road and all conditions on road training. Very popular and busy company run by family members and close friends and colleagues. I'd advise you to having the extra training on your test day prior as I felt no nerves at all due to this during MOD 1 which I felt would have been my problem area. Passed with only 2 faults. Mod 2 was sorted out quickly for me due to circumstances which show how far they will go to accommodate you. Stay around at the end of the day to have a chin wag and a cuppa makes you feel even more easy. Highly recommend you trying this company for your motorcycle training at any level. I'll have to come down to buy you that breakfast I owe you from the foot down competition Steve. Thank you and your team.

Darren Westwood

I had so much fun today with Rich, Steve and Meg doing my CBT. I'd never ridden a motorbike before until today so I was nervous but everyone made me feel at ease. Great knowledge, great training and a bit of a giggle too! I would definitely recommend.

I had my CBT with Steve today what a top bloke he definitely knows his stuff my last CBT didn't. Highly recommend thanks for the day.

Liam Mulholland

Absolutely amazing training. It was my second CBT, I did my first one with streetbike and they were tough on us. Black Top were a million times better. It was much more relaxed, the instructor was friendly and helped you with any problems you were having while on the bikes and talked to you to help you get past them. Would 100% recommend them to anyone who is looking to do their 1st CBT or 10th CBT. Absolutely amazing.

Thomas Harvey

Wonderful and very professional guys, they made me feel at ease. I learned everything I needed to know when I was there. Would definitely recommend. I did very well with Steve. Thank you again.

Alexandru Sorin Stan

I would like to thank everyone at Black Top Motorcycle Training for their patience and understanding. Steve was a great instructor, very knowledgeable and wants to pass that knowledge onto new riders. Apart from my CBT in January this year I had no experience until now. From zero to a pass direct access...Well recommended. Thanks to Sarah's persistence and hard work to get my some test dates around my work commitments. Thanks also to Steve (CBT) for passing his knowledge to help me get around some difficulties.

Simon J Wardle

I highly recommend Black Top Motorcycle Training! The gentlemen were full of knowledge and helped me to get comfortable on the bike very quickly. I'll definitely be returning in the future for my full bike test.

Jordan Mannion

Really enjoyed my first time on a motorbike, all down to the chaps. The trainer Steve was brilliant, knowledgeable and patient with me making the whole experience easy and comfortable for a first time rider. I will be coming back definitely for my full licence to these guys. Thank you.

Andy Smith

Steve is the best kind of instructor; making you feel at ease with a laugh and always encouraging you, whilst ensuring you're safe and getting the skills right. Just over a year ago I didn't know how to ride, now I've got a KTM Adventure with plans on some touring, and I couldn't have gotten there without him, thanks again Steve!

5 🌟 Can’t fault anything with what I received yesterday. Andy & Steve brilliant lads. Nice and friendly I’d definitely recommend I’ll be coming back for my DAS. Thanks for the go on the Suzuki.


Recently passed my mod 2 test with Steve. I honestly cant fault his training from start to finish. Such a genuine great guy who knows how to talk to, and instruct in such a way that it's made fun, with no pressure! Throughout he felt more of a mate than an instructor. And with the help from Sarah managing the bookings, tests etc. I've had a faultless experience. Hope to meet up again with Steve for leisure riding. Thanks guys.

Josh Souster

Had a brilliant day doing my CBT with Steve he explained everything step by step and takes his time and does not rush you at all. I would 100% recommend Blacktop for all your motorbike training. Looking forward to return and complete my DAS course with Steve.

Great day, even treated us to slushies to cool down in the hot weather. Great method of teaching and i will be booking my mod 1 / mod 2

Dan Greenwood

I completed my CBT today with Steve from black top motorcycle training and it was absolutely brilliant! Steve is an incredibly friendly patient character who makes you feel calm and relaxed, while keeping a close eye on you throughout the course to make sure you are taking it all in, staying safe and having fun. He took me from absolute beginner (never touched a motorbike before) to someone who is comfortable going out on the public road on my own, all in a single day! The guys here are very thorough, really genuine and I am looking forward to progressing onto my full "big bike" licence in the near future - and there is only one place in will consider moving it forward with! Thanks guys and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get onto 2 wheels safely, quickly and with absolute confidence!

Adam Gray

I completed my CBT today at black top motorcycle training. What a great overall experience everything was broken down to be made very clear and understandable. I was extremely confident by the end of the day and I would 100% recommend to anyone looking to complete their CBT.

10/10. Done my CBT today with Black Top and will be doing it again when needed with these or potentially full licence. Recommend using these.

Reece Burns

My CBT with Steve and Andy was absolutely fantastic. I've had a CBT before at another place and that was good by Steve and his team at Black Top MCT are on another level. He has the ability to teach and make it very enjoyable, his level of trust in us and understanding of bikes was awesome. A very generous person who kept offering tea, coffee and drinks which he paid for himself and also offered lunch. Really relaxed environment and friendly staff. I learnt a lot from Steve and it was worth every penny.

Mo H
