1st Class Rider

It was 10 years ago! This month 1st Class celebrates its 10th Birthday. Pictured here are our very first students and I’m pleased to say they both passed first time. They are riding BMW CS650cc bikes which were loaned to us by the Cardiff BMW dealership, then Rydale BMW. I must give big thanks to the Manager there at the time Peter Cramp. If it hadn’t been for his foresight and support we may never have started the way that we did. Peter is now the manager at Ocean BMW in Plymouth. Over the years we have kept to our core values of only using Instructors with the highest riding grades, and primarily used Police Class 1 Riders & with RoSPA qualifications. This continues to this day. Also we have not concentrated on simply teaching our students to pass the test, but instead teaching them to ride, with confidence and safely. (passing the test is then easy). This is another value that continues throughout our training. I want to thank my instructors who have worked for me over the years, and especially those that work with me now who continue to deliver 1st Class Rider Training. Over the years, facing many changes to the motorcycle training, testing and licensing systems but my instructors have risen to face these challenges. But most of all I want to thank you, the students, who have made the last 10 years such a success. Without you….we’d have nothing to do! Your success stories and seeing your joy at passing the test and taking to two wheels make it all worth while. Long may it continue.
