Hi Richard, just a quick word on how thrilled I was today to pass my Module 2 test ( without any faults )! This was solely down to yourself, Pete and Mark! You all bring your different aspects of professionalism to the training sessions and I can’t praise you all enough! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to achieve their motorcycling goals.

Many thanks to you all once again.

Regards Neil

Success at last!! Thanks Richard and thanks to Nick and Pete. Really enjoyed the experience with you all. Didn’t enjoy the anxiety!! Haha 



Hi Richard,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the time both you and Pete put into me allowing me to fly through all stages of the testing! Got to say Pete is fantastic! Always adjusted his style to get the best from people and is generally a top bloke! I’ve really enjoyed the whole experience! 

Thanks again 


Dear Richard,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all the instructors (Nick, Pete and Chris) for all your excellent training in helping me achieve my motorcycle license. I will definitely recommend your school to anyone wishing to do motorcycle training. I will be going back to Spain a happy man.

Best wishes and success for the future.


Hi Richard

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks.

The training for my DAS was superb. Pete was a fantastic instructor and I am so pleased to have passed first time.

I would highly recommend A2B to anyone looking to take their test.

I had Chris for my CBT last year and Pete this year for my DAS. You have a great team.

Kind Regards


I just wanted to send my thanks to the team, Nick, Rich and Chris who recently saw me from novice to passing my full A license. 

The team pitched the training at a great level for me and had confidence in me listening and understanding and in turn I had full confidence to implement the training they provided.

Subsequently I am now fully licensed and have purchased my first motorbike which is a 2002 Honda CBR600F which felt like a good bike to continue learning on without going crazy.

Can’t recommend this team enough - thanks again for your help and support.

Look forward to seeing you on the roads.

Many Regards


Hi Richard

A quick thanks to you and especially Pete, for looking after me so diligently and making sure I passed through to Cat A. I now feel I not only have a licence to ride but I also have a respect and understanding of safe bike riding. Much appreciated!


Hi Richard

Just wanted to get in touch to say thanks for last week. If you can pass on my thanks to Pete and Chris, I would be really grateful. It was a bit of a stressful week, but I’m really glad that I did it and made it out the other side.

Thanks again and have a great summer!



Hi Richard,

I passed my CBT today thanks to the thoroughness of Chris. He not only helped on the day but has given me life skills on the road.

Please thank him on my behalf.

Definitely recommend you and Chris again to friends. 

Best Regards,


Hello, just to let you know I've passed and want to put in a good word for Chris. An excellent bloke, done a top job with helping me work out the little kinks in my riding. Really enjoyed my time in the training days with him. And overall very happy with the money I paid for the training/tests. If you could thank everyone that would be great.


I would like to give a biiiiiiig thanks for what the instructor has done with us today. Raining, poor weather but he was excellent. Thanks so much. I hope I see you again soon to do the full one. Appreciate it.


Hi there,

I just wanted to leave some feedback having completed my DAS on Tuesday with first time passes of both module 1 and 2.

I would like to point out that Pete's instruction was excellent. He gives great instruction and with a wealth of experience you soon learn that the Pete way of riding is what is required to get through your tests.

Thanks a lot to Pete and the rest of the team.

Keep up the good work!


Hi mate, just messaging to let you know I passed today so that is my DAS done. I don't use social media so I thought id message you personally. I've really enjoyed the course, and Chris and Pete have been ace and very accommodating. You may or may not know on the Monday we started with Chris, he went out of his way to make sure we completed our CBT training after Stuart and I had been dealing with a poorly lady in the Hamworthy club. Because of his willingness to continue we didn't have to come back another day. 

For the final three days I've had Pete and he has been fantastic at pushing my riding forward to achieve the standard and being patient with me. 

As you advised, learning to ride in six days is a push and I'm grateful you were honest with me about the difficulties that could come with it. I'm happy we split the day 3/3 because it gave me time to relax and more importantly... dry out. Both sites you have are really good and Cobhams car park is brilliant, having the choice of the MT or XJ for the conversion day is also a nice touch. And lastly I couldn't have done it with out the waterproofs you provided! 

Overall mate, I believe the course was good value for money and I would be saying that even if I failed today. The mistakes I made today were more experienced based rather than a lack of training and thanks to Pete, Chris and you I can get on the road and get that experience. 

All the best.


Hi Richard,

As Pete’s probably already told you, I passed my MOD 2 today.  I thought I had @@@k it up at one point too.

Thank you, Pete, Nick and Chris very much for not giving up on me and getting through my MOD 1 dilemma.

I’m thinking that you will be hearing from me for some more ADVANCED training, one I’ve found a bike and started to ride it.  

Thanks again, and please forward my thanks to Pete, Nick and Chris without who’s ceaseless dedication I would never had achieved my Pass today.


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
