Absolutely fantastic instructors! Extremely welcoming and detailed in all of their work, be it practical or theoretical stuff.Did my CBT with them with NO REGRETS and will be planning to do my full license with them with no hesitation.

One word - perfect!I cannot fault the service provided by all of the staff at Blacktop. Sarah was friendly and helpful with all of my booking details. I had 4 days booked for DAS course this week.On arrival I was greeted by Meg who offered to order me a drink straight away as I was early and waiting for Steve to arrive. Steve took us out on the first and third day whilst Craig took us out on the other 2. Both of them were extremely good at communicating what was needed to pass both tests. They guided me where necessary and also there was lots of praise when my riding was to a good standard. Lunch and drinks were provided on all days which is an extremely nice touchAfter the first day Steve offered me a refund of a full day's fee as he thought my riding ability did not require the 4th day of training. This was done immediately and in my bank before the end of the first day.All of the staff clearly enjoy what they do and strive for all students to do as well as they possibly can whilst making the training fun and interesting.I am pleased to say I passed both tests with no minors which is a credit to Steve and Craig for the training they provided to myself.Please ignore the negative reviews as they are definitely not a true reflection of Blacktop. I would recommend them to everyone looking for motorcycle training.Thanks again and see you soon

I had a brilliant experience doing my CBT with Blacktop Motorcycle Training school. I had a female instructor which was a real bonus for me. She was extremely personable and patiently built up my skill set throughout the day in order to get me out on the road safely in the afternoon. Herself and her husband were very encouraging throughout the whole process which definitely boosted my confidence on the bike.Can’t recommend them enough!

Fantastic company, just done my cbt , mod 1 and mod 2 with these guys and honestly I can't thank them enough, Craig, Steve Megan and Sarah are great people.Sarah was on the ball to get me a mod 2 booked she doesn't stop looking until she finds one. if you're keen to get on the road with your cbt or full bike licence don't look past these guys. Highly recommended for sure.11/10 💙❤

Brilliant week doing my MOD 1 & MOD 2 training and test, the instructors were all really helpful and encouraging with clear, concise instructions on the road which led to an easy understanding of road safety and efficient riding. Steve, Meg and Craig all work so well together and this makes it a great environment to be in. At late notice I had a circumstance change which meant I had to juggle the weeks lessons around and this was easily facilitated but the instructors meaning that I didn’t miss any time on the road and I got everything I paid for,Overall great friendly, funny people and a first time pass with no minors on both tests highlights the competency and commitment of the team, highly recommend, Cheers Guys

Enjoyed it.Had my training with Stephen Nikola.Mod1, I passed at the first attempt.Mod2, I failed at the first attempt for a silly mistake (my fault). No wasting time, Stephen's team provided me another test date, 14 days later, and them I passed it. No faults at all, clean sheet.Stephen has given many tips for Mod2 and he is always lovely.All bikes are clean, serviced, working properly, really decent! They also provided jacket and helmet which is great.If you get struggle with English language, don't worry, Stephen speaks very clear and in case of you're not prepared either for ridding or understanding instructions via radio, he will tell you before you spend some money.What a professionalism!!!Well, highly recommended 👌

Had a brilliant day with Craig today preparing for Mod 1 & 2. The other learner didn’t turn turn up so had a full days one to one tuition! Took me through the different parts of Mod 1 until we were both confident I’d reached the standard required to pass then had a few hours on road training.Passed Mods 1&2 yesterday and today. Instruction provided by Steve who couldn’t have done any more to get us through the course and pass the tests.Brilliant instructors - knowledgable, patient and friendly.Can’t recommend Blacktop highly enough 👍

Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Having never been on a scooter before, I was immediately put at ease. The teaching was not rushed, each stage was explained comprehensively and we were given enough practice to ensure we were ready for the next stage before moving on. I cannot fault these guys - I will definitely use them when I come to doing a gear conversion and maybe a full cycle test. Top drawer. Give them a go - you won’t be disappointed!! 💯👌🏻

I completed my CBT with Steve today, it’s been a great experience start to finish.I found it informative, relaxed and delivered in a friendly manner. It has genuinely been a great learning experience. Steve provided the information and instruction to which I felt at ease and at a comfortable pace.Thank you again, I look forward to continuing with Black Top for my future tuition.Cheers

Well what an amazing day. I turned up to do my CBT a right nervous wreck and was made to feel comfortable from the get go. Steve and Meg are the most patient,knowledgeable,funny and understanding trainers you could ever wish to meet. Nothing was to much trouble for either of them. Each part of the training was not only discussed in great detail but also demonstrated and relaxed. I was reassured throughout the whole day. I would highly recommend using Blacktop and will be returning to complete the next stage on motorbike journey. Thank you both for a great experience.

I’m a really nervous driver I lost all my confidence on the road. I went with black top after a friend suggested it because online reviews are slightly dicey aren’t they? Any how, black top was amazing. The instructor, Meg was entirely lovely and chilled. There was no stress and she was remarkably patient. It was a good giggle too. It was nice to be able to have a joke while also receiving a fully professional experience. By the time I got on the road it felt almost as natural as breathing. I don’t have a full licence, but it was a nice easy route with everything you need for day to day driving there was no backseat driving or any shouting (had this before with another driving school). There was no tension at all. She fully explained road safety with out telling us we were going to crash and die a firey death every 2 minutes ( I have had this done to me before with another school even after I told them this was one of my biggest fears I was so stressed that I did not pass). With black top it was just an all round lovely experience. 10/10 would recommend.

Absolute great bunch. I was visibly nervous and the team cracked a few jokes and settled me down straight away. Proper down to earth people but still maintain a professional standard whilst having a laugh. If you want any form of motorcycle training, this is the place to go! Thanks a lot again!

Absolutely brilliant training provider, instructors are fun and very helpful. Would totally recommend doing your cbt here especially if you're a first time rider like myself, instructions on how to ride were thorough and easily understood. Also the ride quality of the bikes was great too. Enjoyed the whole day here.

I've recently done a four day course with these guy's and I can't fault anything about them. I had Craig as my instructor who was brilliant very helpful with everything and didn't rush anything, Plus all the bikes I've seen there was well maintained unlike a lot of the other places.I never leave review's good or bad but these deserve it thanks again.

Had my CBT with these guys on Sunday just gone but didn't get a chance to leave a review as i was too busy... enjoying my first week on bike (in my Rain Straight Through jacket). I would definitely recommend my instructor was incredible. Very patient with clear instructions and useful tips to help with any struggles you might have. If you wish to get on a motorbike yourself book your test with them and I'm sure you'll be out on the road in no time. Overall great experience 👌🏽

I did my CBT with these guys back in November, which was brilliant. I went on to do my mod 1 and 2 this week and thanks to Steve and his expert, no nonsense tuition, I passed both first time. If you want to do it and learn to ride, this is the place to go. I would 100% reccomend! Friendly, easy to have a laugh with and helps correct you when you go wrong, and all for a great price! Don't look anywhere else, get booking!😉

Today I went for my first CBT manual training and had the best experience ever. Both instructors were brilliant and gave us the best support in making us road safe, would recommend these to anyone in the future. Even went out there way and got us hot drinks and hot sandwiches to warm us up in the weather we’ve had today brilliant !!! Thanks again to the two lovely ladies you both are brilliant instructors and make up out of the training yet make sure we are all safe and ready to ride

After watching the new Batman Movie over the weekend I was inspired to get on a bike. I instantly booked in for my CBT for the following week.The nerves were there but the instructors were ace. Meg took my on a solo ride and I was able to achieve my CBT pass.Although the day was extremely cold it was enjoyable and fun. The two mentors were up for a bit of light hearted banter which helped keep the nerves at bay.The premises is located near a sports complex so tea and coffee is available throughout the day.Highly recommend this place for a CBT. Will gain some experience and return for the full license.

I have completed my CBT with Blacktop Training. After 20 years since I last rode a motorcycle, I knew I would be a bit out of practice getting back into the saddle, but the instructions given were excellent, and the friendly banter from the entire team soon put me at ease. Just one day and you learn so much, I fully enjoyed every moment of the day and i recommend Blacktop Training, they are awesome, hopefully i will be coming back to take my full motorcycle licence....

Just completed my CBT with the team at blacktop . After 40yrs since I last rode a motorcycle I knew I would be a bit rusty , but the input I received, and the friendly encouragement from the entire team soon put me at ease.I will take away with me a lot of knowledge and expertise that will put me in good stead for the rest of my riding days. I genuinely enjoyed every single moment of the course and cannot recommend blacktop high enough. Brilliant day.

I did my CBT here at the end of June. There were 3 of us booked in on the day; 2 young lads doing moped and me (55!) with geared bike. Irrespective of that, Steve coached us all equally on the morning session. We were then offered lunch (I'd had brekkie so was OK) and a cuppa before we headed out on the road for the afternoon. Mike took me out and guided me around. I had a bit of a tizz doing my U turn's out in the real world but Mike was really patient and full of encouragement until I managed to get past it and before we spent another hour riding around (it honestly felt like 5 minutes!). I'm really pleased to say managed to pass and will definitely return to this school to do my full training. I thoroughly enjoyed the down to earth, real world style of instruction.

Did my CBT today with Steve. Loved the banter and sense of humour but really appreciated the small pieces of advice. It has been 37 years since I got on a bike and was genuinely worried that at 55, it was beyond me. Steve’s pointers and intercom positivity was great during the ride. Started the ride at 30, then got to 40 and ended up doing 60, all felt very safe and very natural.Loved every minute, can’t wait to move onto the next stages to get my full licence.Wish I’d done it years ago.Genuine thank you.

This was my third CBT but the first time I've taken it at Black Top MCT. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. Both Steve's were fantastic, supportive and passed on so many helpful tips and advice. Great sense of humour and a very fun day riding in the sunshine. They have given me the confidence to finally work towards my mod 1 and 2 and I I'm sure with their help I'll be ripping up the L plates in no time. Thanks guys.

Steve was friendly and calming, providing concise and ordered instruction.
