Great instructor, very relaxed approach to training and knowledgeable of the entire process of IBT, license application etc. Would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking to get into biking.

Highly recommend David for pre test training. He brings you along the test routes, explains what to look out for and is very knowledgeable. I passed my bike test first time, and it was down to the training and advice David provided me with. Now also is a great time to do the bikesafe training and test (where possible) as there is a lot less traffic on the roads!

Dave is by far the best motorcycle coach I've encountered. He provides clear, concise feedback without being condescending.On short notice, he took me out for his two day intensive course. In addition to all of the required by law training, he took the time to show me around WIcklow and ensure I was comfortable on the road.To be honest, I was dreading the slog that is mandatory training, as I've ridden in other countries for years. Dave made the experience bearable, and it was a good introduction to Ireland. I'd highly recommend training with him.

Top Class! I completed the 2 day IBT course Modules 1,3 and 5 with Dave last week (Apr 2017).I had very little experience on motorbikes so I was a little apprehensive and wasn't too sure what to expect. I spoke with Dave on the phone and he explained everything thoroughly and put me at ease.His manner and instruction is very professional and he will have you up and riding the 125 cc bike in no time. We took a trip around the Dublin area and he communicated with me through a headset provided. I felt at all times in safe hands under Dave's guidance. In the afternoon I was up and about on a Honda 400 cc and again we did a trip around, improving with confidence all the time. The following day I was put on the 600 cc and we went for a fantastic drive to Laragh, Co.Wicklow, over the Sally Gap and back into Dublin. I really enjoyed this fantastic experience and Dave is a true gentleman as well as a brilliant instructor. I would have no hesitation in recommending him no matter what level of bike riding you are at. I will be back again to him for a few pre-test lessons in the future. Thanks Dave. Kind Regards - Mick.

Dave is a fantastic instructor. It was my first time on a bike and we went through everything carefully and he answered all questions I had for him. He made me feel safe and confident. I would 100% recommend him.
