  1. Hi,
    Can anyone recommend a motorcycle instructor/school in or around Gloucester to pass on to a friend?

  2. NO !

  3. Andy, do you go as far out as Gloucester for tests/training?

  4. Not normally. But I’ll go anywhere for a test, as long as I can get there and back in a day, but the problem would be getting the learner bike up there without a rider.

    So the learner would have to come to our training site in Cardiff to start off. I don’t mind then going to Gloucester for the final test if they wished. But for a CBT I am restricted to my DSA approved site in Cardiff. So I can’t go anywhere else to do a CBT without getting the training site approved.

    For Direct Access training I CAN start anywhere.
    so relaistically the only way I would be able to do it would be if the student in Gloucester already had a bike of their own that they wanted to train and take the test on, then we could do it that way.

  5. Ok cheers Andy. I will pass that on

  6. you can buy motorcycle sock,s at aldis not Lidi
