Wanted to say a big thanks to Off the Kerb for a great CBT course! I started the day incredibly nervous, but the instructor was fantastic and quickly calmed my nerves! You can definitely tell its more than just a job for these guys, it’s a hobby too. Will definitely be back in the future for my A licence. Would recommend to anyone looking for top quality and fun instruction. Thanks again! (via Facebook)
I spent two days with ‘Off the Kerb’ in preparation for taking my A2 module 1 and 2 tests. I am delighted to say that I passed my module 2 (first time) on New Year’s Eve, thanks in no small measures to the excellent instruction I had from Jon the previous day.
I would have no hesitation recommending ‘Off the Kerb’ to any other aspiring ‘biker and particularly any lady riders out there. I found them very flexible in trying to accommodate my specific requests for odd days, especially around the Xmas period and with regards to meeting at my home address for a 1:1 day of instruction. Always polite and professional on the phone, responding to messages left etc. ( Pete & Fred)
I would also like to mention Jon specifically, I found him to be very approachable and he really boosted my confidence in my ability. I found it especially useful during the regular debriefs when Jon used a pad full of road layouts/junctions/ roundabouts to describe verbally and visually any rider errors and if the road wasn’t already in there it was added. (I think I contributed a couple to the existing contents!)
In summary, I received great coaching from an excellent, knowledgeable instructor through a professional company Off the Kerb. Thank you!
Finally a quick word about Uxbridge Test Centre, I have read negative comments on some forums. I would like to say my experience (and there is quite a lot of it having taken three attempts to get my mod 1, passing after instruction from OTK ) is very positive. I have been ‘tested’ by three different examiners Steve, Colin and Dan, all were polite, professional and as relaxed as they could be in a formal test situation, certainly recognizing my nerves and helping to put me more ‘at ease’. Thank you too! (happy for this to be passed on)
PS Just bought a BMW G650GS (restricted of course!)
I had some MOD 2 training on a 125 back in December. I just wanted to let you know after a couple of mishaps (postponed test), I passed first time last Friday (just in time). Thank you for the excellent training and teaching. I am very happy indeed.
This is just a quick note to register my gratitude to all at Off the Kerb for my recent DAS test pass. I was really happy with Dom, I thought his teaching style was great and he really helped to get my head into the right place for both tests through a thorough analysis of my faults and sound advice delivered in a relaxed way.
I had my CBT with Don – great instruction, really friendly instructors, highly recommended. Cheers Lads! (via Facebook)
Just wanted to drop you a line to say I passed MOD2 today, really pleased. I owe a massive thanks to you, John and Dom. You guys have been brilliant. I’m more than willing to recommend Off The Kerb to anyone! So do let me know if you need any words of testimonial. Thanks again.
Took to a scooter like a duck to water, had a good, patient, knowledgeable tutor too. (via Facebook)
Wants to say a massive thank you to OFF THE KERB, DORKING for getting me and my Son, Lee ‘Hammy’ Chapman through our DAS training and passing our tests!! FRED, we couldn’t have done it without you, and were a bit gutted to say goodbye to be honest!! I bought my dream bike now … CBR600RR!!!! … ill bring it down to show you one day) … thanks again. (via Facebook)
Passed my DAS at Off the Kerb Dorking, Massive Thanks, brilliant instructors, Especially Fred, (Sorry Geordie John, all Freds Work!) (via Facebook)
Please tell Steve that the lessons worked! I am here in Bermuda and riding a scooter happily and confidently, and I wanted to thank him and all of you, for helping me to do it. I am remebering to ‘own the road’!! The family can hardly believe it! Will be in touch on return, as I think I may have got the scooter bug! Best wishes to you all, but specially to the ever patient Steve.
I’m just writing to say thank you for the fantastic lessons! Dom and John were great. Dom got me started with both CBT and DAS, and John did a great job of polishing my riding and keeping me calm when I was nervous! The test went very well and I passed first time! The KTM is now going to make room for a Monster and I’m looking forward to the rest of my riding journey! Thanks again for such a great experience.
Just passed my CBT… I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Steve… Amazing instructor… Gave me back the confidence I thought I lost… THANK YOU Steve. (via Facebook)
Just to say thanks for getting me through my test which I successfully completed yesterday.
I must admit, I found the quality of the instruction and the condition of the bikes both excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Off The Kerb. Thought the instructors were good blokes too which obviously helps. Please pass my thanks on to John especially who taught me. All the best and thanks again.
I would like to say thank you for the great CBT Training i received yesterday. Steve is a very confident and knowledgable trainer. He made sure the whole group was trained to a high standard.
I passed my module 2 today at the first attempt and I am delighted.
I wanted to make a point and write and say that John was absolutely brilliant. He was the difference in making it enjoyable and getting me through. He gets 10/10 for everything he did and the care and effort he put in. I would not hesitate to recommend him and you guys. Brilliant stuff.
I would like to thank Don for his patience and coaching on Saturday. The course was excellent and I learned more than I hoped on the day.
Couldnt rate or recommend these guys more. If you are wanting anything from CBT to full A cat license then consider them as first choice. I did a DAS and achieved my full A cat license in roughly 2 weeks achieving successful first time passes. CBT was presented and instructor by Steve who’s an excellent and confident instructor. In preparation for Mod 1 and Mod 2 i was trained by John all the way and can only say he goes above and beyond his commitment to his students and is a credit to them! All staff are friendly and will always be more than willing to help if you have any questions. Big thank you to John and the rest of the guys for making me a happy full license motorbike rider!!
Quality Training. Thanks to instructors Fred and John I passed my Mod 2 and became a much better rider. The instructors are friendly and professional and most importantly – observant, which ensures you get both helpful and constructive feedback. You will also be spending a lot of time on the road – riding on well maintained, and beautiful Yamaha XJ6s. I can definitely recommend Off The Kerb over other schools.
Absolutely amazing!! Was very nervous in the beginning but the instructors are super friendly and calm when you’re not! Recommend it to everyone.
A friend and I did a CBT here with Nick and it was great, he’s calm, knowledegable, good natured and we passed fine and had fun whilst doing it. Would recommend for CBT or DAS.
passed first time today….big thanks to nick and john for all your help and advice…worth every penny……… these guys are the best and I will be recommending them to anyone and every one…..still as not sunk in..NO MORE LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL’s hahahaha thanks again guys…
From initially being a little scared of perhaps being the only girl there, and having had a bad experience with another school, I must give Nick Jon & all the guys at Off The Kerb a big THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, as you can tell I have just passed my full DAS motorcycle test (both module 1 & 2 first time!) and am sooooo excited! these guys are the best and I will be recommending them to anyone who asks, I’m off to pick my brand new Yamaha up at the weekend (hope its sunny) yippeee
First time I’ve been on the road in the UK…. (Why do you guy’s drive on the wrong side of the road?). The guys at Off the Kerb took great care of me and I got my certificate before I left in the afternoon.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the training. Can’t believe I managed to pass the Mod2 1st time! I was fortunate enough to spend time with nearly all of you and you’re all brilliant. Made me feel completely at ease and made the trauma of the tests a walk in the park. I initially only wanted to pass so I could get rid of the L plates on my Vespa, but as soon as this morning found myself magnetically drawn to Autotrader and there’s a Ducati with my name on it! I will be recommending you to everyone I know. Top work guys!
Just passed my full motorcycle licence with Off The Kerb. I did the 4 day direct access course (DAS). I previously had only rode a motorbike for 2 day abroad but Phillipe and John were excellent and got me through my module 1 with no minors and module 2 with only 2 minors!! They were brilliant and so so helpful and I would recommend Off The Kerb to anyone who wants to get on a bike and pass having a good time whilst doing it!! Thank you!
I did my CBT here having not been on a bike for years and the guys made the whole experience enjoyable and informative. I’m already thinking of taking my full licence and when I do Off The Kerb will be the place I head to. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to all my friends too.
