Had my Training with Steve today, Everything we were going to do was explained very clearly and straight away i knew this training was exactly what I needed. The structure of the training was excellent, with Steve understanding how I ride then explaining my shortfalls and demonstrating the improvements I should make then putting everything I’d learnt into practice. All along everything was explained really clearly. Having ridden bikes for many years passing my test in 1978 with no training. I feel the advice and training I have now had I should have had years ago. In just a day I feel a lot safer, more in control of my bike and have a much higher level of awareness. On top of this, Steve is a great guy, an excellent trainer and puts you at ease. By the end of the day it felt like I’d known him for years. In my opinion every rider would greatly benefit from having this training.

I took the advanced rider training with Rich one of the instructors, 120 miles of useful riding . One to one instruction / help / advice , just a great way to refresh and learn new riding skills . Definitely builds confidence and encourages better road sense. After over 50 years of riding learnt  new things , can’t be bad. Would recommend this course to all riders no matter what age or experience , money well spent.

I would like to say through meeting Steve - RideSmart - at a local motor cycle meeting I decided to take the course. 

Having been riding motor cycles from teens to now 65 years. A bit daunting being back to school but I had the most fantastic experience learning so much like adjusting riding style, staying safer by positioning on the road along with much more.

I would urge all motor cyclist to take an advanced course like this especially with todays traffic conditions.

A very positive experience . A day of non-judgemental observation and positive coaching tips and suggestions that I could put into practice straight away. 

I tried them out on the way home and felt much more confident. I don't ride very often and this was really good for me. Adding to my riding skills and safety but also revisiting the basic good practice. I was nervous as it was with my brother in law but Rich' was very patient and professional so I soon relaxed and got into the swing of riding. I really would recommend the extra training. 

Rich' and Steve both have lots of reviews on the QuickStart Oxfordshire site.

After the initial assessment ride, the course was tailored to exactly what I wanted and ultimately what I needed to improve on.

As a female it can be daunting doing courses in such a male dominated environment, but the guys at RideSmart put me at my ease straight away and it was very inclusive.

The instructors are patient, attentive and informative, giving you clear and practical advice helping you to practice a better technique and really elevate your riding to an advanced level.

The instruction was second to none and once completed, I was awarded the ERS certificate by the DVSA. I am already saving money on my insurance!

Booking the course, through to completion was an easy, hassle free process.
I strongly recommend Ride Smart and their fantastic instructors. It is great value for money and brilliant fun. Thank you RideSmart!
