Definitely worth going for Gold Course. I wish I would go earlier.
Response from the owner: Hey MartinThanks for your review. We're glad to hear you found the Ride Forever Gold course valuable. They are certainly a great day of reinforcement of best practice.
I was a little nervous about doing this course but i couldn’t rate it more highly - I rode away with so much more confidence and knowledge - Clive was such a great teacher and motivator - he shared his experience in a way that works - I am now really motivated to work towards the next step of my restricted through Ornsby - you are not too old or too young or know enough to book in for these courses
Response from the owner: Hey Tara,Thanks for sharing your positive experience with Clive. We look forward to seeing you again soon to progress to your Restricted 🙂
Extremely helpful when having to change scheduling. Expert motorcycle tuition. Confidence in progression through licenses. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner: Hey Jeremy, Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Overall customer satisfaction is what we pride ourselves on.Enjoy the good Autumn riding weather 🙂
Learnt how to ride and passed my BHST through the one on one sessions, they were informative, helpful and I had alot of fun. Thank you Jo!

Did my basic handling and the lady I had was amazing teaching me new things that I never knew and making the lesson go by so fast and fun definitely coming back for more riding lessons
Response from the owner: Hey Aaron,Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Jo is reasonably new to our team. It is great having a female instructor as part of the OMT family and she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience 🙂
Was fortunate to experience 4 of the Ornsby trainers in one place yesterday. So huge thanks to Jo, Hank and Dan for their patience and knowledge that really helped me on the day.
Response from the owner: Hey KhymneThanks for thaking the time to give us a review. We're glad to hear that you benefited from your experience on the track, and what an awesome day it was!!
Definitely recommend Ornsby! Matt was awesome helping me practice before sitting my BHST, he helped ease my nerves and I ended it feeling pretty confident, can’t wait to do my bronze course with him 😊
I thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from Eddie’s style of coaching. He explained and demonstrated things so well and was incredibly patient and structured in his approach. I really felt he was invested in helping me become a safe rider. He proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Would highly recommend Ornsby Motorcycle training to any new, young or old riders.
My journey of getting my bhst certification was amazing and it couldn't have been better with the help of Eddie! I was starting from the very start and he explained everything to each detail and showed me how to get moving within minutes, I recently passed my bhst and can't wait to come back!
Response from the owner: Hi Keegan,Thanks so much for your review and well done on passing your BHST. Eddie will look forward to seeing you again for your Bronze course when you're ready :)Cheers, The OMT Team
I attended a Ride Forever Bronze course with Ornsby Motorcycles Ltd.Impressed to full capacity of the word.Professional, honest, clarity and above all, safety.Instilled confidence. My riding has improved significantly.Definitely will do more courses - see you soon!
Response from the owner: Hey TracyWow! What a review, thsnk you. We are so glad to hear how much the Ride Forever Bronze course boosted your confidence and in turn your safety.See you soon 🙂
I’ve done five ACC Ride Forever courses (2x Bronze, 1x Silver & 2x Gold) with Jared, Wayne, Clive & Dan - all excellent instructors who have helped me progress as a rider with useful theory and practical feedback. I highly recommend Ornsby Motorcycle Training for anyone wanting to improve on their current skills or take the next step in their licensing. Looking forward to getting involved with more of what OMT has to offer! Cheers legends!
Response from the owner: Hey Hamish,Thanks for your awesome feedback. Happy travels and no doubt we'll see you again soon.
Did a bronze course in greymouth with Dan on the Sunday and restricted license the next day, Dan is a very good instructor aswell as a license tester, very knowledgeable and more than happy to help build confidence, showing correct and safer ways of riding, definitely recommend ornsby if you are wanting to learn how to ride a motorcycle, I look forward to getting my full license, thankyou.
Response from the owner: Hey StephanieIt has been a pleasure working with you and I was as excited as you were when you passed your CBTA Restricted license assessment!We look forward to catching up again in the not too distant future to sort your Full.Well Done 🙂
I attended a ride forever silver course and completed my 6F test. The instructor kept things light hearted and entertaining, keeping class work engaging. The direct feedback he provided to me during our ride was great and significantly helped me improve my riding style and ability. Highly recommend this company.
Response from the owner: Hey Taylor,Thanks for sharing your good experience with Wayne, and congratulations on passing your CBTA Full license assessment wth Ornsby Motorcycle Training following his great instruction 🙂
Matt has been awesome to do the practice and test with and shared helpful tips and tricks with me even after the lesson was finished. Definitely got value for money. And already before the day I felt well looked after on the phone by the office lady explaining the prosedure and answering all my questions. Can only recommend.Thanks again Matt. See you on the road 🤟🏼
Really enjoy their ride forever courses, would do again... (done 3 already)Always a good day and pick up some valuable skills, which have helped prevent an accident while riding more than once, and often find myself being more aware in the car as well
Response from the owner: Hey DionThanks for your feedback. There is no doubt that attending regular (refresher) Ride Forever courses we are keeping on top of our game.We look forward to seeing you again soon...
Eddie was a good teacher. As the Bronze is aimed at a learner going for restricted I got a lot out of the day and most of it has sunk in and that's saying something haha. Going for my Restricted in 2 weeks and with a lot more confidence. Thanks again.
Response from the owner: Hiya Sam, yes Eddie is a wealth of knowledge and a great teacher!I'm sure that with the Ride Forever Bronze course under your belt you will be suitably prepared for your CBTA Restricted test with him.All the best, and happy travells :)Thanks so much for the awesome feedback for Eddie. Hopefully it's all sunk in and you nail your assessment 😉 Don't forget to read the NZTA CBTA Course Guide and let us know if you have any questions before. Well done on preparing well and gaining the skills you need. It definitely helps with your confidence that's for sure!
Did the bronze ride forever course this week with Wayne. It was amazing. He's a highly skilled rider and has excellent teaching skills. I already feel way more confident and safe on my bike and it definitely helped me pass my Restricted CBTA 3 days later. Thanks Wayne!
Response from the owner: Hey Sam,Thanks for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed and benefited from the Ride Forever Bronze course with Wayne, and congratulations on passing your CBTA Restricted license with Ornsby Motorcycle Training.
I did my basic skills handling test with Matt in Wanaka a few months ago and just did my Bronze Ride Forever with Wayne in Christchurch yesterday. Both really great instructors and good experiences, the Ride Forever course in particular was awesome fun and I learnt loads! Looking forward to sitting my Restricted with you guys soon. Thanks for everything 🙂
Response from the owner: Hey Nina,We're glad to hear you are enjoying your experience with Ornsby Motorcycle Training, what can I say, our team are simply the best! 🙂
Response from the owner: Thanks Aki,Enjoy the ride 🙂
I’ve had the pleasure of having a few training sessions with Clive, Wayne and Steve, I was extremely nervous especially my first ride but each of these guys helped me through each stage, I would highly recommend the team at Ornsby, I’ve come away today with my basic handling certificate and so much knowledge he help me on my new bike journey and I will definitely be back for the team to help me reach my full licence.
Response from the owner: Hey Hannah,It's great to hear you have enjoyed your experience and we are blessed to have such amazing instructors.We look forwad to seeing you again soon on a Ride Forever Bronze course.
Awesome training. Matt was fantastic. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.
I did the Silver Course as a returning rider who had lost all confidence out on the road, especially in corners!
Dan followed me for a while and could see exactly what was going wrong. It was things that I knew I should be doing but wasn't putting into practice because I was scared of the consequences and was overthinking things. Some positive reinforcement from Dan and learning to trust my bike (and tires) made the world of difference!
Still lots to learn but feel way more comfortable on the bike now and can't wait to get out and practice the skills I learned on this course.
Bloody Awesome Course, highly recommend!
Had my training session with Matt, and he was great. Never touched a bike before, but he had me riding around the area in no time. Great teacher and a great time
I attended a Gold Ride Forever course in November 2023, Wayne was the Instructor for the day. After an engaging workshop ( approx 2 hours) where we covered a range of safety and riding areas, we set off on a 360km ride. The class was full which equates to 6 riders plus the Instructor. We covered a range of disciplines and there is always something to learn/take away with you. Value is without question a total bargain (thank you ACC) but the true value is a full day focussing on your awareness and technique. Wayne was clear and has a great ability to engage with people, I recommend everyone doing at least 1 of these a year for as long as they are available. Thanks to Wayne, Dan and Hollie for what you do within this community.
Response from the owner: Hey SteveThanks so much for your feedback and kind words. It is great that we finally managed to get you on a course and look forward to catching up again soon.Dan & the team at OMT
Was interesting day, gained some more knowledge for better riding
Response from the owner: Thanks for your feedback, it's always welcomed 🙂
Hi just like to say Wayne in Christchurch was awesome, really enjoyed my day with him, and learnt some awesome things, 12 out of 10 thanks again, I'm a full license rider but did the bronze course loved it. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone well worth it AAA+
2nd Gold course completed. Highly recommended for any rider. Content and instructions tailored to the individual.
Response from the owner: Hi Mac, thanks so much for the review. We really appreciate it and are glad to see that you are using the Ride Forever programme for regular refresher training and upskilling. Eddie will look forward to seeing you again sometime.
Absolutely recommend - courses informative and have made me a better rider. Also done license through them and would recommend paying the extra for pretest ride.
Response from the owner: Hey John,Thanks so much for your feedback, keep up the good work 🙂
had a great day out upskilling and ironing out bad habits picked up from years of riding [we all have them]its good to have someone giving real time advice as you go for an everyday ride on public roadslearning in the same environment as you will be riding in is a huge advantage
I was stoked with the basic handling training that Matt took me through recently. I came in with my dirt bike "goggles" on, and Matt took what bad habits I had developed, turned em around, and churned me out as a more well rounded and safer rider. Thanks mate.
Response from the owner: Hiya Mark,Thanks so much for your feedback we appreciate it. So glad to hear you had a great time with Matt. We'll look forward to seeing you again 🙂
I recently had the pleasure of being instructed by Wayne Girdlestone and I cannot express enough how exceptional the experience was.From the very beginning, Wayne showed a genuine passion for motorcycling and a deep commitment to safety. His extensive knowledge and expertise in the field were immediately evident. What sets him apart is not just his technical prowess but his ability to impart that knowledge effectively.Throughout the lesson, Wayne provided me with invaluable tips and insights that went far beyond the basics of riding. He taught me not only how to handle the motorbike with confidence but also emphasized the importance of responsible riding, hazard awareness, and defensive riding techniques. His guidance was not just about passing the test, but about ensuring I became a safer and more skilled rider.Wayne was incredibly patient, understanding, and encouraging. He tailored his instruction to my individual needs, addressing any concerns or questions I had along the way.Thanks to him I gained a newfound confidence on the road. I feel equipped to handle various riding scenarios safely, and I owe a significant part of this achievement to him.I wholeheartedly recommend Wayne Girdlestone anyone looking to obtain their motorbike license or enhance their riding skills. His passion, knowledge, and commitment to safety make him an outstanding instructor. I'm grateful for the positive impact he has had on my riding journey, and I look forward to continuing to learn under his guidance in the future.Thank you Wayne, for helping me become a safer and more skilled motorcyclist!
Response from the owner: WOW! What a review.Thanks for spending the time to relay your gratitude. Wayne is super passionate and always gives 110%, we are so lucky to have him as part of our team!
Training made enjoyable. I learned more than I expected and will definitely do another. Brilliant!
Had an awesome time on the ride forever bronze course, while it was obvious that all on the course could ride Motorcycles we all learnt something on the course to help make us better riders and less chance of becoming a statistic. 10/10 can't wait to.sit my restricted and then the silver course.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much John for your positive feedback. So glad you enjoyed the training. We look forward to seeing you again soon :)So sorry for the slow response!
Was the best thing I ever did, Wayne is a great teacher I learnt so much and will be back to get more experience with having my learners. you won't regret it going here.
Response from the owner: Wow, thanks for the awesome feedback Deborah. We'll see you again soon 🙂
It was good
Completed a first time rider lesson and the BHST with Matt. Both sessions were very enjoyable and informative. Matt is excellent at explaining everything he is very patient and friendly.
Response from the owner: Hi Jerry, congratulations on ticking off the first step in your license process and thanks so much for your feedback. You can definitely tell that Matt loves what he does. We'll look forward to hearing from you when you're ready to progress your skills and experience. Talk soon 🙂
Done my BHST with Matt and he was an absolute gem! Such a patient, good teacher with great tips and never made me feel like I couldn’t do any of the manoeuvres even when I made silly mistakes. Couldn’t recommend more.
Response from the owner: Hi Kim, so glad to hear you enjoyed your session with Matt. He is a very good teacher. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to helping you with your next step. Give us a call when you're ready to book your Bronze course 🙂
There are not enough stars on here to give Ornsby Motorcycle Training their due! I have had a fanatastic experience, firstly with the Bronze Ride Forever course, then my restricted licence, then the Silver course and now my full licence. As a retunring rider with 30 years off the bike, I could not have had a better experience. Thank you so much Hollie, Dan and Wayne, I will be back for the Gold course soon!
Response from the owner: Hey Peter,We're really glad to hear that you hve enjoyed your experience with OMT. We look forward to seeing you back for a Gold course to complete the Ride Forever 'Box set' 🙂
Eddie was really helpful & presented the course & training in a relaxed friendly manner.
Response from the owner: Thanks Andrew, we look forward to seeing you again in the future sometime. Enjoy your riding 🙂
Super satisfied with courses, presentations and coaches and recommend to anyone looking for constant improvement in riding skills!
Response from the owner: Hey Denys,Thanks for your feedback and we're glad to hear that you were super satisfied 🙂
Thanks to the training from the team at Ornsby Motorcycle's, especially Hank who’s been an incredibly patient trainer, I'm now on my restricted licence. I was rather nervous learning to ride in my 40’s and needed support to gain confidence and become a safe rider. I started with basic handling skills & one on one training with Hank, a cornering course with Dan, the Bronze Ride Forever with Clive, followed by more one on one training with Hank before moving to my restricted. It might seem like a lot, but it was money and time well spent. If these guys can get me onto my restricted, they can help anyone! I nearly gave up, but I’m so glad I didn’t. For me the key to gaining confidence was the one-on-one training with Hank, it was great to learn simple tips that make a huge difference to my riding, and my safety! All the other training clicked after that! I’m now one happy biker chick! Thank you so much to the whole team 😊 PS Hollie, you're great too!
Response from the owner: Hey Cindy,Wow, thank you so much for your kind words. Although it's our goal, it is nice to hear how much of a difference we have made. Happy travels and we'll see you again soon 🙂
Went from absolute beginner to full licence with Ornsbys. Awesome team of people! Very professional but also made it fun. Wayne is great instructor!!
Response from the owner: Well done Martin! And thanks for your review 🙂
I highly recommend this place to get your basic handling test. Costumer service is very good they will tell you anything that you need to know etc. The instructor who was appointed to me was nice and very knowledgeable tells you everything you and properly equipped you. Great experience overall.
Response from the owner: Thanks for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed your experience with OMT. We aim to please 🙂
What a fantastic team of people to deal with. I have been fortunate enough to complete the whole process from no licence to 6F in just over 13 months. Nothing was ever a problem and the feedback after each and every course was invaluable in helping me pass the 6F at my first attempt. Thanks team, already looking for my next course.
Response from the owner: Hey SimonCongratulations, and we're glad to hear that you have enjoyed your experience with OMT 🙂
I have enjoyed four excellent Ride Forever courses with Dan and Hollie Ornsby’s organization. They have taken particular care in the vetting, selection and training of their instructors. I’ve been lucky enough to learn and finesse vital riding skills and strategies with Wānaka based Simon and Invercargill based Eddie; both of whom boast tremendous experience, knowledge and patience. I’ve even been lucky enough to ride with Dan when he schooled a few of us in the dark arts of metal road riding … amazing what a man will do for a meat pie.I could not recommend Ornsby more to those who wish to take full advantage of superb Ride Forever programmes prepared by ACC and partners.
Response from the owner: Hey Justin,Thanks for you review and kind words. We are very lucky to have such an amazing team of instructors, and we are equally gratefull your your continued custom.RegaardsDan
Super great experience doing my BHST with Ross super helpful with everything. Thank you
Response from the owner: Hey OwainThanks for your feedback, we are very luck to have Ross recently join the team 🙂
Just completed my CBTA 6R with OMT and Wayne as my assessor. Highly recommend them both! Wayne was very friendly and genuine, and his passion for safe riding was evident throughout the session. He was impartial and left me with some great feedback and things to work on. I highly recommend OMT and Wayne for anyone looking to improve their riding skills!
Response from the owner: Hey LiamThanks for your awesome feedback 🙂
Just completed the Ride Forever Bronze Course - this has equipped me for both the CBTA 6R assessment and a lifetime of safe riding. Clive is super knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, and has a great sense of humour. Highly recommend both the course and instructor. 👍
Response from the owner: Hey LiamThanks for the awesome feedback, we will be sure to pass it on to Clive.
Thanks Dan and team for really putting the effort in during my basic handling test. I left having learnt a lot and Dan's good humor and light touch approach were just right for me. Got my theory sorted today and felt much more confident riding my new bike. Looking forward to going on Ornsby's bronze ride forever course next.
Response from the owner: Hey Alex,Thanks for the feedback, it was a pleasure working with you. We look forward to seeing you on a Bronze soon 🙂
Simon is a great motorcycle instructor, i enjoy my ride forever silver course with him.
Response from the owner: Hey Daniel,That he is! Thanks for the feedback 🙂
Every single course that I have done with Ornsby Motorcycle Training has been a fantastic experience, instructors are awesome, learned so much important information, highly recommend them for all your motorcycle training needs,
Response from the owner: Thanks Jennifer, we really appreciate your support 🙂
Great team, great service. I’ve done a few courses / licenses with Wayne and Hank and both are so knowledgeable and helpful. Also, very accomodating when you need to shift dates around etc. thanks for that Holly!
Response from the owner: Hey Nick,We're glad to hear you have been happy with our service. We are blessed to have such an amazing team.RegardsDan
Eddie is great to work with. It's really helpful. Thank you for the pointers

Have to say what a legend, Had Clive for a bronze ride forever and a restricted test, couldn't ask for more, straight up and honest with what you need to do to improve,The overall communication was excellent cant fault them at all would highly recommend
Response from the owner: Legend, well you don't get much better than that! We're glad you enjoyed your experience with OMT 🙂
Awesome company, amazing to bring back some confidence of being back on a bike. Extremely good at teaching with positive reinforcement. Look forward to more training with Eddy soon.
Response from the owner: Thanks Sam, we hope to see you again for the Bronze and your CBTA when you're ready too 🙂
Totally agree with all the positive feedback I've just Read .Very professional with a guinue personal interest in your safety. Will use this provider for all my training to aquire my Full and get cheaper insurance. Looking forward to future rides.
Response from the owner: Hey StephenThanks for adding to our positive feedback 🙂
Thanks to Clive for all his great coaching , throughly recommend his course , and so pleased to have sat restricted with him .
Will be carrying on these courses to keep improving and getting all the enjoyment out of my new Bennelli
Awesome experience on a motorbike over the weekend, super grateful for the training with Wayne, fabulous communicator, patient and friendly support. Thanks heaps!
Response from the owner: Hey Eleanor,Thanks for your kind words, we hope your riding is more enjoyable as a result 🙂
I have no worlds to express this amazing training i had with Matt, patience is the surname of this guy who took me from zero experience to a conform level to do my handling test. Thank you so much, next step is putting my Girlfriend into it!

Cheers
Eddie is the man everyone interested in exploring motorcycle freedom.He is professional in every sense of the word,with a great people skill to comfort ,control educate clearly.Thankyou Eddie I was very impressed.
Response from the owner: Hi Warren,Thanks so much for your feedback. Eddie is a wealth of knowledge and passionate about helping riders be the best riders they can be, that's for sure.We look forward to seeing you again
Excellent service every time! Ornsby Motorcycle Training is always going out of their way to make sure I turn into the confident, competent motorcyclist I aim to be. With an unusual attention to detail and the ability to safely take me out of my comfort zone Dan and team make sure I come away with new skills every time. Cornering school, slow skills, maintenance workshop and Ride Forever courses - I have done them all, and will definitely do way more of them. This business is very supportive of ladies motorcyclists. If you want to ride like a pro, use Ornsby.
Response from the owner: Hey AnyaIt's been a real pleasure working with yourself and AWMA over the years.Kind regardsDan & the team at OMT 🙂
Great instructing and overall experience. Well worth the time and money, had a lot of fun learning to ride a motorbike and seeing quick progression.
Great service, last time I rode a motorbike was 14 years ago and Matt was amazing in explaining all the tricks and tips for a safe ride.
Passed the test with no problem.
Thanks Matt
What s great experience! Learned so much, highly recommended. Thanks Clive!
Response from the owner: Hey Jonathan,Thanks for your kind words, we will pass on to Clive.RegardsDan
Completed the Ch-Ch Ride Forever Gold course yesterday. Shame about the weather, but course was excellent, as was our instructor Wayne. My 3rd Gold course and highly recommend for continued learning or as a refresher. Thanks team! Keep up the great work in helping keep our riding community safe.
I had a really great experience with Debbie. She's a lovely, warm, encouraging coach and has a wealth of knowledge. I was able to ride home feeling far more confident in my abilities. Whether you're a novice or experienced, I recommend training through Ornsby Motorcycle Training & Licensing.
Completed the Silver Rideforever course with Eddie. A great guy and he couldn't have been more helpful. I have ridden on and off over 40 years but never went as far as getting my license. I never realized how many bad ridding habits I had. I certainly wouldn't have passed the test if I hadn't done the course. Such a great program by ACC and run by the correct people. Awesome
I got positive results using Adoda love spell in bringing back my husband and make my marriage work again via http://dradodalovetemple.com I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Adoda for the amazing work, It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished.
cater for the remote Westcoast town of greymouth
Response from the owner: Thanks Gaurav 🙂
Brilliant course, led by very helpful and professional instructors. Even though I've been riding for a while, I picked up so many more skills and techniques... and hopefully shook a few bad habits.
Response from the owner: Hey Tim,We're glad to hear the Ride Forever course was of benefit and well done on passing your CBTA assessment.
Amazing team of people that are there to support and guide you every step of the way throughout the training journey. Highly recommend Ornsby Motorcycle Training.
Response from the owner: Hey Jan, thanks for your kind words 🙂
A great day out for the Gold with Hank. Some new ideas to aid the skill level. Many Thanks.
Response from the owner: Hey RobinThanks for your review, we're glad you had a good day.RegardsDan
Was a great day out with Hank doing the Gold course which left us some fresh ideas to work with.
Attended a Silver Ride Forever course with Simon in Wanaka. A great day was had and a few new things learnt. I highly recommend them.
Response from the owner: Hey Mike, thanks for your review.
I don't have any motorcycle experience, I don't even know how to ride a bike, but with Pete's encouragement, I got a motorcycle Leaner driver's license very fast! Highly recommend!They are so nice!Thanks!
Response from the owner: Well done Dan 🙂 We look forward to catching up again soon for some on-road tuition and Ride Forever.
Went out with Eddie this morning. Not only did I learn a lot; I also learned how much I didn’t know.Eddie has a very easy style about him, and is great at passing on his knowledge. See you on the next course
Spent the day working with Pete - can't recommend these courses enough!
These guys are awesome. Highly recommend to anybody thinking about getting into riding or just brushing up on their skills. Cheers guys
These courses have helped me undo a lifetime of bad riding habits. (You don't know what you don't know) I've done several gold courses now, and each time I've come away with something that's improved my ride. The guys are passionate about riding and passing on skills that improve rider safety. Most of the day is spent riding, with a bit of time to yarn with the other riders at a cafe somewhere, so you know it's going to be a good day. Learning or brushing up on some skills to improve our longevity as riders is clearly the aim but the ACC cash back is a definite bonus. Thanks team, I'll be back again next year.
I had the opportunity of Eddie being my instructor today. I couldn't have asked for anyone better! His instructions were very clear, he was so patient and I was very much, put at ease with his manner.. A true people person... a real credit to Ornsby Motorcycle Training.Thank you so much for making this experience very positive.Cheers Carolyn 👍
Response from the owner: Hi Carolyn, Thanks so much for your feedback. Eddie is a top bloke and enjoyed taking you through your session. We look forward to seeing you again soon for your next step
Just completed my first course with these guys. Absolutely brilliant. Had a 30 year break so getting back to the basics helped a lot.
Awesome teaching from Eddie, super patient and always there to provide feedback and helped me feel comfortable on the bike. As a result I was able to pass my basic handling skills test. Definitely going through Eddie for any future courses I do!
Response from the owner: Thanks Temo, great work well done! See you soon 🙂
Found the instructor to be extremely patient and thorough and bike supplied was meticulously prepared. However the course was just too small and not representative of real life, I struggled with it to the point I will not progress my motor cycle license. Which is just a renewal as I have had several bikes.
Response from the owner: Hi Bob, thanks for your feedback. The course size and test requirements are stipulated by NZTA and not something that we can control I'm afraid. I'm glad that you found Eddie's instruction and our services good and hope that this would be more of a 5 star rating that a 3.
Did my basic handling today with Pete Daly great guy and was very helpful. The booking system was very simple and easy to use, looking foward to progressing through my licensing with your team .
Great Amazing Staff, Riders, Knowledge just everything is easy and simple.
They are happy to help at any time and the feedback you get and constructive critsisms are spot on for everyone.

Awsome instructors all around.

Always a pleasure to deal with the team, including riding with them.

Many thanks to all involved especially through this tough couple years

Massive Kind Regards

Great company to train with! Eddie is awesome to deal with. I will return for further training.
Response from the owner: Hi Nathan,Thanks so much for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Bloody good people. Easy to book, great communicators and make the entire thing fun and valuable. Learned a lot and had great chats.

Cheers.

Excellent course. Eddie very professional, and provided really good advice.
Response from the owner: Hi Craig,Thanks so much for taking the time to share this. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.
Eddie was nice guy and easy to get along with. His passion for motorbikes was obvious with his care and patience towards learner rider( my son) I was very happy with results and although I think the MOT needs to revise rules and tests for motorcycle learners I’m greatful to Eddie and Ornsby motorcycle training for getting my son on his way towards full motorcycle licence.Cheers.
Response from the owner: Hi Dean,Thanks so much for your feedback, we look to seeing you both again in the future.
Eddie was a great instructor, and helped me surprise myself passing my BHT at my first session!
Response from the owner: Hi Warrick,Thanks for your feedback and well done! We look forward to seeing you again soon, when you're ready for your next step.
I have no hesitation in supporting the Ornsby Training programs. I am a late ( very late ) starter to motorbike riding and Eddie has patiently taken me through the various stages to the point where I feel confident enough to keep myself and other road users safe. I have no doubt at all that I would have been an accident waiting to happen if I hadn't undertaken these programs.
Response from the owner: Hi John,Thanks for your feedback. We really appreciate you taking time. Well done on your progress, we look forward to seeing you again when you're ready for the next step.Ride Safe.
just want to say a BIG thanks to Hank for a really great day on the greymouth bronze course ...so much help and knowledge (and patience!). I learned so much ( I had no idea I was such a rusty wench lol)

Big thanks to Ornsby Motorcycle Training and our instructor Jared.
Did the Silver "Ride for Ever" program and I would recommend to ant rider.
our Instructor Jared was calm and clear with his guidance and helped me improve my safety skills and road awareness.
riding on varied road surfaces , city and open road was a great experience towards my Restricted Licence test.
many thanks

Completed the bronze course with Eddie yesterday in Invercargill and found he is great teacher, the course covers so much and my confidence levels have increased heaps by knowing how to keep myself safe. I had fun and am looking forward to the next level. Highly recommend this for everyone on a bike.
Had a great day doing the Ride Forever Silver course. Had 5 years off a bike so was perfect to get a refresher on skills. And also learning new ones. Had Hank as an instructor who was top notch. Will definitely be going back for a Gold course early next year. 👌🏍
What a great “Ride Forever” Silver course today. After a couple of hour in the classroom, went for a great ride to sharpen skills and put into practice what we learned. Can’t wait to do the gold course as well. Thanks Jared
Rekindling motorbike riding after a break of some fifteen years, I found this course very useful in regaining my confidence. Great instruction by Clive, where the whole group were able to hear and see what Clive was telling us.

I would recommend this course to everyone who enjoys motorcycle riding.

I will be attending these courses regularly.
