Hadn't ridden a bike for almost 20 years, so I was really nervous to start. The guys got through CBT to DAS within no time at all. Great instructors that take the pressure off you when you need it. Highly experienced and professional and I couldn't recommend them more!

Excellent place to learn to ride! Did my CBT and passed with flying colours, came back to do my A2 and passed my Mod 1 with 0 minors and my Mod 2 with 3! Also made some great friends through learning at DMS, best decision I ever made.

Five stars all the way – these guys are brilliant!
I passed first time and it's all down to their relaxed but professional teaching method.

Mark, Kev and Matt are very experienced instructors, delivering best in class training with safety being a priority. I have been out on lessons with all three and learned at my own pace, always having a laugh on the way. Can't recommend enough!!!

Passed my direct access last year with DMS and what a great experience. I'd never ridden a motorbike before and they helped me through my cbt and then onto the bigger bikes and I had my full licence in no time. They have great bikes to learn on and a great set up with space to practice for mod1. The instructers are good at what they do and teach you to really respect the dangers and some advanced techniques to give you skills for life.

The fantastic team at DMS got me through both my A2 test two years ago and this year my full category A licence. Fantastic tuition, great banter, a brilliant group of riders to ride with afterwards and most importantly... before DMS I rode a 125, now I ride a 1500. Thank you guys!

Would like a say a huge thank you and well done to the instructors at DMS for getting me through my DAS. Very down to earth and very professional. I thought getting lessons would be a pain because of my working hours, but the guys at DMS were very flexible and accommodated me brilliantly. Would highly recommend .

Massive thanks to Mark and the DMS instructors (Kev, Steve & Matt) it's been a brilliant fun time with you all. To those reading this I passed my motorcycle test first time and it's all thanks to these guys and their utterly brilliant instruction. Each lesson was on brand new Kawasaki motorbikes (which are brilliant to ride), it was fun, informative and really exciting! I'm now the proud owner of a Honda Cbr 600rr and am living the dream. I can't recommend Derbyshire Motorbike School highly enough give them a call now :)

I now have a motorcycle that I feel confident to ride and lots of good safe engrained riding habits.This is a great motorcycle school that has found the perfect balance between professional, informative, and honest teaching, combined with a friendly and socialable atmosphere. The bikes you learn on are clean, well maintenaned, comfortable, and easy to handle. Plus the location of DMS allows you to develop your skills on some fantastic roads with fantastic views throughout North Derbyshire. Many thanks DMS!

Mark was the most patient and encouraging instructor who adapts his training to the individual and will teach at a speed that you're comfortable with. he helped me gain confidence and I've never looked back (apart from my lifesavers). DMS don't train you to pass your test, they train you to be a confident rider for life. Thank you SO much! Highly recommend to all, but brace yourself for bad jokes!

All the instructors are top notch. After not riding for 24 years, I was a little apprehensive but the whole day flew by, humour and a relaxed atmosphere made it enjoyable and informative. CBT check, DAS here we come.

Mark and Kev thank you so much for your support and kindness in helping me achieve my motorcycle licence, you're the best

Just passed my big bike test and can't stop smiling! Huge thanks to Mark, Steve, Kev and Matt who are some of the best guys you'd ever want to meet with amazing teaching skills and vast amounts of motorcycle experience and knowledge. It's been a wonderful time spent with you guys I can't thank you enough for helping me realise a boyhood dream of owning and riding a Harley Davidson. And yes you were right Mark you've given me skills for life and taught me to ride a motorcycle not just pass a test, Thank you!

Brilliant motorcycle school with brillant instructors. I had a fantasic time and got my cbt, keep up the great work :)
Posted By Sam Roper
Just had to write in to you guys to say thank you and to say what an absolutely brilliant day I had with you. From start to finsh on my cbt I was looked after royally with total professionalism and just enough cheeky banter to ease the nerves, customer service at its best! Your tuition was pitched at us all perfectly and nothing was too much trouble even when some of us on the course ;) had a total loss of brain power. Thanks to Mark and my instructor Matt, long may Dms have the sucess it has and so richly deserves.

Had a brilliant day with Kev and got our Cbt's - We are really looking forward to going back to complete the next step!! I learnt a lot on the course and now feel confident out and about on my first bike. Thank you Kev.
Posted By Joanne Woods
I was doing a re-test of my CBT and my instructor Kev was very nice. He has made me a better more aware rider. He was very thorough, had lots of patience and was extremely encouraging towards me and a fellow learner. Will be coming back here to do my MOD 1 and MOD 2 in the future.

I was quite nervous about doing my CBT, but Kevin the instructor had a laugh with me and banter which all helped to calm my nerves.
He went into great depth about the importance of saftey and also things to check on a daily basis with my bike, which i find very useful and do on a daily basis now.
If you are thinking of going for your CBT, I cannot recommend DMS enough,
Put it this way, when I am ready to take my next step towards a bigger bike and need to take my next test, DMS will be first call.
Cheers DMS & Kevin

Mark and his team are by far the best instructors you'll find. The training is informative and knowledgeable, putting your safety first but keeping everything fun and enjoyable. I took my cbt last year with no experience whatsoever and enjoyed training so much I booked straight onto the DAS course and now have my full motorcycle licence!
Thanks Mark! :)

I've been on my 125cc for almost 2 years and finally decided i wanted the upgrade.I came to this very DMS website and read these testimonial and was impressed by the reviews but when i arrived, Mark was absolutely brilliant.He shown me the ropes on how to handle and control a bigger bike.With his knowledge, I passed my A1 licence.Now i can take my L plates off thanks to Derbyshire motorbike school.I can not stress enough how good this center is, The staff are extremely friendly,patient and the banter is excellent getting you through the day! So i would like to say thank you on the excellent service provided and getting me through the test.
Posted By: Alex McCormack
I did my CBT here on my own bike which I was a little intimidated by before instructor Mark took the handle bars showing me (not telling me) exactly how to control the bike. The methods of teaching at this school are hands on and extremely informative not much sitting in a class room falling asleep. They don’t just teach you how to be safe on the roads they also teach you how to maintain your bike. All in all I now feel more in control of my bike, well informed and happy to ride on the roads. It is extremely good value for money and you won’t be disappointed with the result!!

I did a CBT with Derbyshire Motorbike School and the help of instructor Kevin earlier this week. I would recommend this school to anybody in the area who wants to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Very friendly, helpful instruction and a good laugh if nothing else! The staff really know their stuff and have a wide pool of knowledge with years of riding experience on different styles of bike. Great prices and a variety of well maintained equipment/bikes for learners to use.

Did my CBT with Mark about six months ago. Best Value around at 110 quid with all safety gear and helmets included for the day. The trainers are all friendly and actually listen to you when you have a question, the bikes are in good condition and not ancient (like one school in south Derbyshire that shall remain nameless) and the level of teaching is top notch.
So good I recommended them to my girlfriend who passed her CBT this past Sunday! Cheers- keep up the good work
