Kickstart Rider Training
I did my direct access (DAS) course with Kickstart and they did a wonderful job of getting me through to my big motorbike licence. They have 92% pass rate on the DAS course (national pass rate is apparently 60%) and were extremely flexible about days I could do my course as well as being all around helpful and friendly.
Once I had gotten my licence I went back to them to buy my first lot of bike gear as Nuala was extremely patience with my lack of knowledge about anything and gave me a discount in support of doing the trip for Chance. I would like to say a big thank you to my instructors and the folks at Kickstart and recommend them to anyone wanting to get their bike licence or buy gear. Their website is at www.cbt.me.uk
