Hi Richard,

I wish to convey my thanks to you and especially Pete (Instructor), for all your help and assistance in allowing me to pass both Mod 1 & 2 first time.

During the training it rained every day, and not once did Pete complain, he just soldiered on, and delivered great training during my time spent with him.

The Mod 2 pre-test training weather was conducted in arctic conditions, again, Pete was a true professional (even though he had heated grips).

I was so inspired by your professional staff, I’m going to wait the obligatory 36 months, then apply for DSA Instructor (Motorcycle) training myself.

Incidentally, I passed my Mod 2 with zero minors!

Thanks again.



I have nothing but praise for the guys at A2B. Not only are they perfect instructors but a godsend for the vertically challenged people such as myself (i'm 4ft 11 with a 24" inside leg - anything is possible!).

Pete has been absolutely fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of him. He provided constant, brilliant instruction, excellent pointers to take into account on the road, and really given me that extra push throughout training. Honestly, I couldn't give a more glowing review to him.

I give a big thank you to Richard and Claire for great communication and quick responses. They're very organised and friendly, it's been a pleasure. :) 
Chris is a man of his word! I can't thank him enough for the modification to the side stand to help me get my foot on it. A true gent, helping ease me into the A2 conversion day and picked up some excellent tips for the road! Thank you to Nick for calming my nerves on Mod 2 :)

I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Everyone has been an absolute pleasure to meet and made the whole experience far better than any other company i've been to. If anyone is thinking about where to train look no further :) If I think about moving up to Direct Access, there are no doubts in my mind where i'm coming back to!


Hi Richard,

Sorry I have left it a while, but have been away a lot !

I signed up with you for the Direct Access Scheme around the beginning of September and just wanted to thank yourself and your team, especially Pete who took me through the process.

Having not sat a test or been under any kind of examination for around 30 years I found it difficult not to be nervous about the pending onslaught of tests, exams etc. to get through the DAS. Pete however came to my rescue and dragged me through the process at my speed and made me feel quite comfortable about the whole process. He had patience and explained things very clearly and kept reminding me that it didn’t matter how long it takes we will get it done. I learnt loads and managed to pass all stages first time round ! I would recommend your company and Pete to anyone without hesitation. Don’t tell Pete I bought a BMW (he being a Honda man) and definitely don’t tell Nick (being a BMW man) as he will love telling Pete ! :-)

Best regards,


I've just finished my CBT. I had the pleasure of having Pete as my instructor, he was experienced, calm and all round a great teacher! Thanks very much! Highly recommend


Passed with no faults cant recommend pete enough.thankyou


Fantastic school, great instructors, take it at your own pace but progress you efficiently, have done all my licenses with them (cbt twice, A2 and A licenses) passed everytime, any further qualifications will be done with them. Really cant recommend them enough. If you're new to riding or experienced after a refresh, this company is the one to do it with!


Just wanted to say a big thank you to A2B for training me up for my CBT and Mod 1 and Mod 2 for my full A class licence a couple of weeks ago. I thought the whole A2B experience was excellent with - in my case - Paul getting a good grip on the admin making the whole thing as hassle-free as possible and some outstanding, patient instruction from Pete. I went from "a totally blank canvas" to passing my Mod 2 on a busy Friday afternoon in a few weeks: 1 CBT day, 2 practice days before my Mod 1 and then finally a further practice day before the Mod 2. Pete was excellent and has a knack of tailoring his approach to the student he sees in front of him... Thanks again guys - All the best, 


Passed my A2 with them the other day, had a four day intensive of 2 practise days, followed by Mod 1 then Mod 2.
Was already confident before starting, however had to dull it back a bit as being over confident is when you make mistakes.
Very friendly bunch of chaps, had Pete as my instructor, a top bloke who's very experienced and knows how to push you to succeed.
Was a very enjoyable learning curve, and would highly recommend to anyone doing any test, or even just wanting to advance their riding.
10/10, keep up the good work chaps!


Can only say good things about them, every bit of training was amazing, really friendly and informative. These are the only people I would recommend and will be using them again very soon.


Passed CBT, Module 1 and Module 2 for the full A license with A2B ... great guys, I can't praise them enough.
Pete has the patience of a Saint ... even when faced with more than a few "senior moments" from me. He's brilliant


Thanks to Pete and Paul for your training and support fantastic teaching techniques and so happy I choose to use these guys definitely recommend thanks again!!


Passed my CBT to day !!! Pete was a fantastic instructor , very patient with me despite how nervous I was this morning. Highly recommended.


I got my CBT with A2B last year and got myself a little 125cc to get used to riding, went back a couple of weeks ago for my DAS course with Pete and he was very helpful and patient, giving me the confidence to pass Mod1 and Mod2 with no issues 


Very good, excellent trainers willing to help with any part your struggling on, and will always push you towards that pass . highly recommended!


A2b ... These lads are "The lads" to choose if you're looking to obtain any kind of motorcycle experience or license.

After years of talking about it , I finally decided this year was the year to get on the road. 
With no previous experience on 2 wheels I booked my cbt with a2b for the 22nd of February , I passed mod 1 a week ago today with 1 minor fault and passed my mod 2 with 0 minors exactly one month from the date of my cbt!

All I can say is this company consists of excellent teachers who are happy to have a good laugh along the way . 
I highly recommend !!!!


I had always wanted to get a motorcycle since I was a teenager but never quite got round to it til a chance to have an early mid life crisis came along. I did a CBT with Paul in 2015 which set me up for a year's safe riding on a 125 and then did the DAS course at Easter 2016 with Nick.

Nick was a total inspiration and was always positive and with real attention to detail about my riding giving me clear specific advice. The standards that he taught to in the DAS were, I believe, harder than the actual test; therefore I passed both mod 1 and mod 2 first time and all within the same week as my DAS.

We came across a few other training schools whilst we were sitting in the test centre and having seen a few of the others in action, I'm really really glad I went with A2B who clearly have the skills, knowledge, patience and equipment to teach it properly.

Thanks very much!


What a great bunch of guys. Couldn't have asked for anyone better to get me through my direct access. Nick took me through my CBT and Pete got me through Mod 1 and 2 tests. Both guys were so patient, helpful and made my time spent learning a whole heap of fun. Paul was brilliant too. A great point of contact and advice. The whole experience was not as scary as I thought it would be. Looking forward to getting my own machine and enjoying the world of biking. Would highly recommend A2B to other prospective Lady riders. Thank you guys xx


I recently moved back to Bournemouth and couldn't do my full licence before my CBT ran out, so after looking at options I went with A2B. I found Pete to be a very able instructor and was happy to renew my CBT under his guidance. He was professional and attentive throughout the course and able to tailor his instruction according to the trainees. As I hope to gain my full licence later in the year, it is fair to say that my experience with Pete has convinced me to use A2B for this, so in that regard as well he is a credit to the company. Another very happy customer!


Thanks to A2B Training, passed my mod 1 with ease. Absolutely brilliant training, very professional instructors! Special thanks to Pete Wootten for high level training! See you on mod 2!


I passed my CBT yesterday
the instructor was patience,helpful and understanding with great knowledge. 
I highly recommend him x


Passed my mod 2 today thanks to great training by Pete. Gave me all the confidence to pass and taught me everything I needed to know and more. Would definitely advise to going with a2b if you're thinking of doing your bike license. Thanks again Pete!


Great bunch of guys having taken and renewed my cbt twice with different companies I was recommended to use A2B for my full test, to which they didn't disappoint I passed first time. I found everyone very passionate about what they do and by far the best motorcycle training company I have dealt with. Nick was a fantastic trainer and I can't thank him pete or paul enough, hope to meet you all again on the road.


Had a fab day, recommended to anyone (especially thoughs of you that may require a little more input, I needed a lot of it). Attention to detail on safety was paramount, information giving was awesome I learnt so much, and instructors knowledge where second to none - but most of all Pete's patience was incredible with me for which I am eternally grateful.
...if your are reading this you should not bother looking anywhere else


Where do I start? A personal and professional service provided by Paul, Pete and Nick every bit of information and more required to pass CBT, MOD 1 and 2 all first time! Would definitely recommend them to complete beginners to riders with some experience, where able to quickly access experience and progress from there to keep it all interesting! Thankyou very much all at A2B...


Done my cbt and DAS with A2B Pete the instructor is a fantastic bloke! He has loads of patience and would explain everything till you fully understood. Would recommend him for anyone who's looking to learn to ride.Thanks for all your help Pete with teaching me and getting me too a level of safe riding.

Many thanks!


Great training, friendly instructors I've done several CBT's with them and been great everytime. Just completed my DAS training which thanks to Pete and the team I have flown through. Would definitely recommend them to anyone experienced or novice. Cheers!


Having not ridden for 25 years I did a 'back to motorcycling' day as preparation for a holiday riding Route 66. The personal tuition with Paul was excellent; I learned a huge amount and had great fun. We started with close control on a 125cc, then a 500cc and finally a Kawasaki 650 which I rode out with Paul's radio link commentary and advice as we went along. This is a very professional outfit and Paul is a really engaging and knowledgeable guy who clearly loves his job and is very good at it. Thanks so much guys.


A2b were fantastic - couldn't have done more to help me pass- full licence in just a week. Paul was incredibly helpful and flexible, rearranging tests when I needed it and Nick was a great instructor, chilled out but very effective.
Couldn't recommend enough, pm me if you need further details.


Great tuition by the guys at a2b, got me through my mod 1 and 2 tests first time. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to get on a bike, and will be returning to do some further training myself.


Went on CBT and the A bike training course. Passed all 1st time thanks to the help of Nick, Paul and Pete. They are a font of knowledge, experience and help, can't fault them at all. Even when I punctured a lung and had to perspone my final day of training and both mod tests they showed flexibility and patience with no hesitation and still got me through. Proper stars can't thank them enough.


I was really pleased to pass my A2 test with A2B. I met all three instructors (Paul, Nick and Pete) over the course of my training, and would wholeheartedly recommend them all. A great team all round. Hopefully I'll be back in a few years to do the full A licence!

Great instructor and great training. After going to a couple of local schools this was by far the best and would highly recommend!!


Big massive thanks to Nick and Pete for their instruction in helping me achieve a clean pass sheet on my Mod 2 a few weeks ago.

Their instruction and advice has not only helped me pass, it has been a complete game changer for my riding technique.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending A2B to anyone in the future.


I would just like to say thank you to Paul, Nick, Pete for all your help in getting me a pass on my mod 1 and now a full licence on mod 2.


Just a quick thank you to Nick,Pete & Paul for getting me through my CBT and my full bike test,passed yesterday at 10am out on my bike at 11am.(bloody freezing)


Thanks to the guys at A2B, after just one day training I passed my A2 mod 1!! Now just the mod 2 and I'll be onto the real bikes! 


Thanks to Nick for an excellent session refreshing my very rusty biking skills and giving me the confidence to take the plunge again after too many years on 4 wheels!


The best. Superb team and so supportive. Pete has been a star at getting my nerves sorted. Thank you all xx
