A massive thanks to Gordon! After 4 cancellations and seven weeks off a bike, I passed my test first time today all down to the great tuition from Gordon. He's an easy going guy that's very good at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone of any level of skill. Cheers mate, I'll see you on the road!

I chose to learn with Gordon after learning with another school and several different instructors, all telling me different things. Gordon is a down-to-earth, fun guy who doesn't just teach you how to ride the bike to pass your test, but teaches you beyond that to help keep you safe once you pass. I will be back to see Gordon for further training now that I'm on the road, and would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to get their licence.

Thanks to Gordon & his excellent instruction I now have a Cat A Full Bike Licence. Gordon took me through Mod 1 & 2 in a manner that makes it a pleasure to learn. Never having ridden a bike before, Gordon was patient & very understanding & his training is second to none. I would recommend Sharper Rider Training to anybody, whether it's your first time on two wheels or not. Nice guy to train with, patient & professional. Europe here we come :)

Until I had done my CBT I had never been on a motorbike, now thanks to Gordon's excellent tuition I have passed my full motorbike license and feel extremely confident in my abilities . I am a much safer rider because of the skills that Gordon has taught too me, so I really can't recommend him enough as you don't just want to ride a bike you want to stay safe as well.

I cannot recommend Gordon highly enough if you are considering any level of training. I had only ever ridden pillion before doing my CBT with Gordon. He provided an extremely high level throughout CBT, Mod1 & Mod2 and I firmly believe that I would not now hold my full licence if it hadn't been for him. A lifetime ambition fulfilled. If you are considering giving biking a go then contact Gordon, patience of a saint and goes above & beyond! Thanks for everything & made my day when I got a wave when out riding last week :)

Thanks Gordon. I appreciate the time and professional style of training that resulted in a pass to ride the big bikes. I enjoyed all the facilities on offer that included Tarmac in South Lanarkshire,North Lanarkshire and Glasgow. Thanks Gordon

I cant recommend training with gordon enough. His down to earth attitude helps to no end he will explain anything you do wrong in a way that sticks so you have no excuses for doing it again. The level he teaches is way above whats needed for both mod 1 and 2 i will be recommending him to anyone looking for lessons as i done my cbt with a well known motherwell school i can say for certain how good the training is i learned more and gained more confidence in 3 hours with gordon than a day with them. A big thank you for all the help and i will see you on the road

I did my CBT last year with one of the "big" training firms around the Motherwell area but after being fed a lot of wrong information on biking I didn't want to go back. Gordon was recommended by another new biker who I met on this years Yorkhill Easter run while I was still on 125cc L plates so I made a call and ended up on the phone for over half an hour going over my plans. Within 10 minutes on my very first lesson Gordon had taught me more about riding that I'd been taught in the full 8 hour day at the Motherwell rider school and everything just clicked. I got my theory booked right away, passed and Gordon booked both my mod 1 and mod 2 tests there and then. I only had around 5 lessons and found his manner of tuition and coaching far exceeding what I'd expected or read about other instructors. He never got annoyed or angry and even when I was making silly mistakes he was always helpful and guided me. Not that he would let me off lightly as safety was always his main concern and finding out about his own background on 2 wheels really brought it home how expert he is on the road or on track. I'm happy to say I passed my theory, mod 1 and mod 2 tests first time and am now the happy owner of a Yamaha 600cc sports tourer (XJ6 Diversion F) which I've already modified slightly with custom decals and a new tinted screen. Now I'm more used to the new bike over my 125 I'm about to book another session with Gordon to take me from "just passed" to "competent on the road". I'd have no hesitation in recommending anyone, young or old, new to 2 wheels or returning veteran to give him a call. His training works and by the time I was on test I felt confident and was performing over and above what was needed giving me a good cushion for on the day nerves. 10/10 in every way! Thanks Gordon and see you soon for some post test training.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gordan for all his time and effort he put in while doing my training. His coaching and mentoring advice was fantastic. Anyone thinking of taking Bike lessons I would highly recommend Sharper riding school.

Passed Mod 1 and Mod 2 with Gordon. Gordon came highly recommended from a past student and I can only say I wasn't let down at all, infact Gordon's instruction and training was first class! I have recommended Sharper Rider Training to a few of my friends in the knowledge that they will get the training they require at very competitive rates!!!
Best Regards to Gordon for the future...

Big thanks to Gordon for getting me through the MOD 1 and 2. I previously went to a popular riding school for the CBT and was not impressed. Gordon's approach is excellent, professional and takes the time to train you ‘Sharper’. Enjoyed every lesson. Could not recommend higher.
