Like most training schools we get regular feedback from our students about how they felt about our courses, and some of their comments are reproduced below.
In addition, as members of the Motorcycle Industry Training Association (MCITA) and as part of our accreditation for the MCIAC award, we also provide details of all our students to an independent body who survey them for feedback. This feedback is used to ensure we are delivering on our promises and are meeting the expectations of our students. A few of the comments received from this independent survey are also included below – we have many, many more like these and would be happy to introduce you to past students if you want to ask them for their views directly!
Here are some reviews from our Facebook page:
Very very happy with my CBT experience today. Many thanks to both Col and Paul for the amazing teaching and the chance for a first time motorcyclist like myself to gain some excellent experience. Would 100% recommend this school for anyone learning to ride a motorbike in a friendly and safe environment.
Went to see the guys today for my mod 1 training and all I can say is thank you so much for being understanding and patient xxx highly recommended xx wait to do my DAS now 🙂
Fantastic school to learn to ride with. Absolutely loved the training package, love the license cheers guys.
Absoleutly amazimng time learning to pass, and actually pass my direct acces, thanks to oaul at inner circle I now have a full motorcycle license. Amazing, friendly, and totally professional instructor.i would deffinately be recomending inner circle to anyone who asks me about direct access. Thankyou very much paul and tracy for everything
Excellent new training centre. Very professional in all aspects.
So far I have only done my CBT and some follow up training on the road to doing DAS. The service and tuition has been excellent and everyone with whom I have interacted has been really helpful, honest and professional. Bespoke to your needs and really good people.
Absolutely fantastic service. We at Northwest Honda asked for Paul's services for a customer who was returning to biking and she could not recommend him enough. Very patient and instils confidence massively. Highly recommended in the Manchester/Stockport area and well worth travelling to for a highly skilled instructor! 5*
Great Experience for all round. Would recommend to beginners and experienced riders alike.
Have known the owner and trainer Paul Beatie from a previous training school. He is knowledgeable in everything he does and has a calm relaxed and professional approach to your training. I have followed Paul to his newly established training school and maintained our friendship. Not only does the training school offer lessons, it's much more than that. You become part of a team who regularly meet up and enjoy rides out and bike nights. This is a school who go the extra mile and do what's right for you as an individual. Paul Widall.
I have done both cbt and das with paul and i couldnt recommend inner circle more. Extremely helpful, polite, welcoming and experienced. The extra events make inner circle more of a community rather than just a training school which shows that its not all about getting ur money and moving on. Thanks for everything paul and tracy
Paul could teach anyone to ride a bike... best instructor in the north of England!
Amazing place Paul and the Team put u at ease from the min u walk through the door. Highly recommend from a rider who has been riding for several years went to sit the ERS course to become a blood biker cheers again Paul new member to your monthly bike meets also now lol
Anyone wanting to learn to ride don't put it off!! Inner Circle were fantastic, I'd never ridden a bike before, the training went to my pace and Paul is very honest so you feel 100% safe.
Excellent school, excellent instructors and passed my full motorbike test first time
I really do not think I would have managed to achieve obtaining my license (and this is something I have always wanted to obtain) from any other school than Inner Circle. All the team I met (I think everyone) were excellent and encouraging and without this support I might have given up. I was not a natural and it took me slightly longer to gain confidence and believe. Cornering was a slight issue for me at times (let’s not mention it again Paul) and after some excellent extra 1-1 training I felt better with this and was enjoying my time on the bike much more. I really cannot thank the team enough and look forward to getting my own bike at some point (when I have somewhere to put it) and I’ll be back for after test training as the learning and enjoyment never ends. Great experience and cannot recommend enough.
Passed first time with these top people.
Top morning training with Paul. Relaxed, confident training, made me feel at ease and not like I was on a test. Thank you, highly recommend you to others.
Had an awesome time doing my CBT. 'Fell' in love with biking. Now for the modules!
Passed both parts of my test - with no faults at all on the mod 1 - really good tuition and the ability to be able to train on the test centre site an advantage. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get into motorcycling
I went from never having ridden on the road to a strong pass in my full bike licence in 2.5 weeks! Inner Circle taught me so well that every test was passed first time. I cannot praise them enough! Highly recommended!
Today was the first time I have ever ridden a bike, a great experience and lots of fun! I finished the day with a good level of confidence, competence and the certificate, all thanks to the endless patience of the team ! �
Just passed with Inner Circle Training Mod 1&2 frist time and what a great school to ride at with nice easy to ride bikes not to mention the great teaching from Paul. would recommend anyone who is interested in taking lessons to get in touch with Paul or Tracy and see what they have to offer.
Brilliant training school with excellent, friendly instructors who train you how to ride properly, would recommend this place to anyone looking to get their bike license!
I passed first time thanks to great tuition from Nic with 3 fantastic days in the sun luckily. I got calming words from Paul on Mod 2 day which definitely helped. Top facilities and gear! Its nice learning on a quality bike. Would recommend to anyone!
Obtained my full motorbike licences last Friday after completing the DAS course with Inner Circle. Can categorically say I loved every minute of the training. The instruction, environment, ethos and equipment with which the training is delivered is I'm sure second to none. They are experienced, friendly and patient, and will adapt the training to all levels and learning abilities. I would not hesitate in recommending these and will be taking further training from them in the future.
Never ridden a bike ! Learning a new skill ! This is the place to go! Passed my cbt today ! Paul is an excellent instructor really felt he tailored the training to my pace ! Thank you !
I did a 3.5 day training course and loved it. I can't recommend Inner Circle enough. It was a fun experience and I learned such a lot. From the start I felt relaxed and had a laugh, passed first time. �
Can't really recommend Paul & The Inner Circle team enough. From start to finish the experience was a pleasure. From completing my CBT a month and a half ago until today, passing my full cat A bike test I loved every minute. Awesome school.
Passed my Mod 2 this morning with zero faults - happy man! If you're thinking about doing motorcycle training or if you know anyone that wants to, whether CBT or advanced training, I 100% recommend Inner Circle Training. Top class training school and instructors. Thanks again Paul - as soon as my bike is finished I'll be on the next Inner Circle ride out with you!
Passed my Full motorcycle license today with inner circle. Who took me from cbt all the way up to modular 1/2 standard. Great team would recommend to anyone who is looking to take that next step. Thanks again
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to wish you and Tracy all the very best with your new venture .
Myself and Jo owe you a great debt of gratitude for helping to change our lives.
Nearly 2 years ago now I spent the day with you to complete my CBT and purchased a little Honda cbf 125 I spent the autumn and winter commuting to work before joining up with you again to start and complete my das training
Your training methods are second to none and delivered in a very understandable way with lots of patience you persist until your pupil gets it right and it sticks.
I Have been working part time for 3 months building my own sameday delivery company. Starting as a motorbike courier then introducing another bike and a van.
Well I quit my job last week and am now the proud Managing Director of ECS Emergency Courier Services.
None of this would have been possible without your training patience and sometimes more determination than I had to pass and get my license.”
Never ridden a motorcycle before ! Course paced at my speed of learning so did a full day followed by a half day for the road ride ! Great training !
Perfect. Fantastically run centre with patient, empathetic tutors.
The training I received was of a very high standard. the instructor ( Paul Beattie) was extremely professional polite and friendly… it is a school I am more than happy to recommend them to anybody who asks me where to go
“I passed my DAS in 2012. I then bought myself a bike. The bike was always going to be a hobby rather than for everyday travelling, so I knew I wanted to get the most out of my riding as possible and enjoy every minute.
That’s where the Advanced Course, lead by Paul Beattie comes in.
Paul took me for one of my DAS sessions and I knew we would get on well from the very start. I liked his style of teaching, and he has plenty of stories to tell. So when has asked me to consider the Advanced course, I knew it was something I wanted to do.
The course consisted of two “class room” sessions where the theory is covered, followed by a full day out on the bikes.
The theory sessions were very interesting and just made complete sense once Paul explained the systematic approach to Advanced riding. It enables the rider to ride better and more safely, whilst still making progress.
Paul’s relaxed yet informed approach makes the theory session very sociable and interesting, and he has plenty of anecdotes to make his point in a number of ways so that everyone can understand.
The practical day on the bike was great. We had all kinds of weather during the 140 mile route round the Peak District. Coffee stops, lunch stop, multiple road and traffic conditions, and Paul will take some video to help explain where improvements can be made.
I would fully recommend the course. My riding has improved a lot. I am much more confident in the corners; I can enter them on the right line, and accelerate out of them much earlier than I would have done previously.
Nobody can know it all, but after the course with Paul, I certainly know a lot more.”
