For anyone considering Fresh Start to learn how to drive, I cannot recommend it enough. John is a fantastic guy, funny, great advice and analogies and great for anyone who may be nervous at first as I have been. (Won’t let me tag for some reason, so if you can please tag this!) Thanks so much for letting me join in the gear up course today. These guys follow through too… First starting to ride, helping you get a nice bike, sell all the bike gear, get you through the full test if you wish. Fantastic service!

Thanks to John I passed my Mod 1 and Mod 2 last month.

At my age being an OAP I was apprehensive about the whole thing, fortunately I found Freshstart and John was very patient combined with the right amount of encouragement.

I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND John and Freshstart to anyone at any age.

I passed CBT with John today, had an excellent day, John was very informative and I will be going back for further training to help pass my test. I would HIGHLY RECOMEND John and Fresh Start.

thanks Ian .

Completed my CBT with Fresh Start this weekend. The instructors are great guys, very friendly, approachable and patient.

There were only two students on the day so we had an instructor each for the road ride section and received plenty of attention and advice. Prior to this I had never been on a motorbike so don’t worry if you have no experience, it is all explained on the day.

I hope to pass my theory test and go on to the Direct Access Scheme within the next month or so – with Fresh Start Motorcycle.

Went to fresh start training from cbt to full licence. Just the right amount of ear bashing and encouragement. Had a few extra lessons for my confidence and passed 1st time. Had great 1st year on my bike will be back for advanced training in summer.

after passing my theory test I went to see john who told me I needed to do my c.b.t. and a das course so from not riding a bike for 20 years he got me from c.b.t. to full bike license in 3days and all around my life style he makes learning to ride fun and takes you pass the standards needed to pass mod 1 and mod 2 thanks john look forward in seeing you for my advanced training soon

Done my CBT, MOD1 and MOD2 direct access training with John.

Initially was told that would require 2 1/2 days training but after seeing me perform well with the CBT I got told that one days training should be sufficient, John got me up to the required standard and I managed to pas both the Mod1 and Mod2 on my first attempt.

Have to say that Johns training was very useful and he tries to make it enjoyable interesting for you as well, taken some back roads which where amazing to drive on and a good experience.

Very patient and encouraging training. Direct access training and tests is a comprehensive and steep learning curve for anyone like me in the 50 plus age group and who has never been on a bike before. I was very pleased to have achieved my qualification with John’s expert training. Many thanks.

Eric Edwards – Manchester

I booked in at very short notice and I can say in all honesty that fresh start and my instructor (john) are top quality and I’ll be booking my direct access course with them soon.

Stephen Jackson – Leigh

Did a two day intensive riding course pretty much from scratch after doing my CBT elsewhere a couple of months previously then not riding, and the tuition received had me at test standard well within that time. John’s style of teaching and knowledge goes above and beyond what is required to pass, and actually trains you to ride and think like a biker.

I had great time learning, picked up valuable information about motorcycling in general and the confidence required to pass the test. Many thanks, and hoping to keep in touch!

I trained with John from cbt to passing a full motorcycle test and found him to be patient knowledgeable and very helpful, he has the full range of equipment you will require, which of course you get the use of if you don’t have your own, I fully recommend Fresh Start to anyone who wishes to get out on two wheels

Steven Carr – Warrington

John was a fantastic instructor, who went above and beyond to help in any way he could, so that I could gain confidence and knowledge whist riding the bikes. He has a wide range of bikes and equipment to cope with all types of riding. I used their service from CBT stage, up to passing my full bike licence, based on the new modules. A fantastic family run business. I would recommend to anyone, who was looking for a quality instructor and service.

Having recently retired, I decided to re-awaken an old dream and climb on a motorbike again. I had not ridden since I was an apprentice in the Navy and that was back in the sixties. All those years ago I had never bothered to take a test as it was only me riding and when the children came along the 4 wheel urge struck me.

I found Fresh Start from a Google search and signed up for CBT and, after an appraisal, for DAS training. John was an excellent instructor. He instilled me with confidence from day 1, even after falling off.

I took my test after 4 days of training and passed first time. Not bad for an old’un pushing 60. I am sure that the patient and skilful instruction I received from Fresh Start went a great way to making my dream happen. I now own a tourer which my wife and I enjoy fully on our days out.

John Stanley Crane – Warrington

I learnt to ride with John at Fresh start motorcycle he was the best!!!! As I had been in for my test a couple of year before and failed I was sure I would fail again but john got me through.

Thanks a million john.
