Excellent service and training. Slightly expensive, but you get what you pay for. Certainly worth the extra few pounds to receive high quality training for what could otherwise be deadly.

John Wilson of Solo, what can I say !! I had never ridden a bike before and decided I wanted to learn. After checking prices versus experience of local teachers I decided to go with Solo. I was so glad I did – I passed first time with one minor fault. Solo offered me the full package from the CBT to the full direct assess course at a very competitive price and I would certainly recommend John to anyone who is interested in learning to ride a bike what ever level you are currently at. He has a wealth of experience and to go with that a lot of patience !!!!! His company has the personal touch. Very impressed. Get booking your lessons !!

Having left the motorcycle world behind in my youth it was with some trepidation that i planned my return. I wanted to do things properly and being
somewhat unsure with so many changes over the past 30yrs i rang " Solo " who guided me through what i required. My instructor John took me from
my CBT though to my final test with a short intensive course. I enjoyed every minute, the instruction was superb as was johns company with his
knowledge and love of all aspects of motorcycling. I would recommend " Solo " to anybody looking for motorcycle training from novice to expert
or like me born again !!!

My first encounter with a motorcycle took place on a Saturday morning on a CBT with Solo Motorcycle Training. To tell you the truth I was a little nervous and did not know what to expect. I was very quickly put to ease when John (the motorcycle instructor) began to run through the format of the day... step by step. The day kicked off with an introduction from John and then we began to put on the kit provided by John (from head to toe)... We were now ready to start the day all kitted up in our safety wear. John began to explain the basics about the motorcycle from where all the controls were to the mechanics of the machine. As always a demonstration of the the task would be shown by John before the rookies would have a bash. The first task in hand would be putting the motorcycle on and off the stand. Once we had all mastered the task we were then to move on to the next task. We would walk with the bike to get a good feel of weight and manoeuvrability. Once we had these under our belts we would move on to starting the motorcycle and practicing motorcycle control. Before lunch we were able to ride around the course quite well for rookies which John had set out. After dinner we talked about road awareness to brief us before we were to venture on to the road. Fantastic... what a day, I could not believe I had ridden a motorcycle on the road, considering the fact that before 8am that morning I had never touched a motorcycle before.

After I had a taste of the CBT, that was it I had the bug and wanted to be able to ride a bigger motorcycle. John advised me how to do this... first the theory test, mod 1 would need to be completed and then mod 2 to be completed then I could enjoy a bigger motorcycle. The challenge was set and me and John began our journey together on training days for the mod 1 on the car park style test at Macclesfield rugby club, which we practised on the day before (so I guess we had a head start), we passed first time. The next test would be the road style test (mod2), me and john took to the road practising and covering all bases. With Johns brilliant coaching I passed again first time.
John is a fantastic motorcycle instructor, building trust and confidence between you, him and the machine!!! Thank you John, Ryan Nicholls Poynton
