Wayne took us out today for our Bronze course and made the day a memorable one and opened my eyes to how much more there was to gain and learn on a bike and how much more to be aware of and be cautious of ahead and behind. Also Wayne went out of his way to help me see the better side of the motorcycle community and I am extremely grateful for what he has to teach. Thankyou

Wayne was my instructor for my basic handling test, he was extremely patient and polite all around and seemed very passionate about keeping people safe on the road. I look forward to coming back at some point and furthering my motorcycle skills

Dan and his team are passionate about making you ride with confidence and a smile. Not the easiest when it comes to CBTA and beyond as they care about developing riders to a very high standard, trust me your family will love you for training with Ornsby.

our Instructor Jared was calm and clear with his guidance and helped me improve my safety skills and road awareness.

I did the bronze Ride Forever course with Eddie. He was a fabulous instructor. His instruction was superb and his critique of our riding issues spot-on, I think. He obviously has passion for the job, and is very skilled.I feel a learned a lot, and feel I am a much safer rider now.

I've done two Ride Forever courses with the Ornsby team, as well as a cornering track half-day at Ruapuna, and have come away from each a more confident and assured rider, albeit a little more cautious than before. Each instructor is an enthusiast as well as an expert; you can see that they love riding and bikes and want everyone else to have that same passion. Whether you are just getting started and want to improve and gain confidence or, like me and have been riding most of your life, there's value in doing these courses.

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.

I'm always telling people to go on one of the many course options these guys offer, as they're all great, always something to learn or brush up on. Awesome!!! 😀👍

This is the second time I have done a silver course. The instructor gave very good instructions & advice to keeping safe while we were out riding the roads. We where taken to a quiet street to learn about how to use & manage the front brake. Then we learnt how to do tight turns which pushed me to become way more confident in the way to lean.sitting position & handle the bike. What you are taught WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE. IT did mine.

Did the silver course last week end.Have returned to biking after 20 plus years, they say you never forget how to ride a bike, but what you know and should know are two different things.I have learned a great deal from this course, my riding Technics are now on track for better riding and a better understanding of awareness whilst riding urban and open road.The instructor made it easy to understand both in theory and in practice, having a one to one instruction on the road made it easier for me to adjust my riding habits and greatly improve my cornering and braking skills.Had a great day out, well worth the money, look forward to the gold course.

Enjoyed a really interesting and informative day with Dan, Nov 30th. Very good to get encouragement to improve some poor riding habits that have developed over the years and get the opportunity to put the ABS system on my new Vespa through its paces in a controlled situation. Over all a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Recommend all motor cyclists do this or a similar course.

Took the ride forever Gold course on Sunday. This time, Hank was our instructor. I had taken Bronze and Silver (twice!) on my way to getting my full licence. I have been lucky enough to interact with Dan Ornsby and Pete Daly on my previous courses, and Hank certainly did not disappoint. I find that all the instructors are highly qualified, but they all have their own style and put emphasis on different aspects of riding, which is a good thing at the Silver/Gold levels and makes it worth taking the training multiple times. I personally try to take one course at least once a year. Cornering is probably in the cards for me in the future! Thanks guys!

Did the Gold Course yesterday and learnt heaps. Have ridden a lot but this highlighted a lot that I hadn't taken into consideration. Cornering (not all about cutting the apex), lane position always changing depending on the hazards around you as you ride along, use of rear brake and where to look etc. Brilliant - highly recommend it. We think we know lots but don't really. Dan was great - happy to advise and pass on his experience. Thank you..

It was a good friendly and educational course. Light hearted and very helpful. Having not owned a bike for most of my working life and having not long got back in the saddle, the course was very good for my confidence. I highly recommend this course to anyone including experienced riders as you are bound to get something useful out of it.

Dan was really constructive, giving me a couple of simple things to work on to make my riding safer and more enjoyable. I'll be back for the Gold course sometime. Highly recommended.

I had a generally disappointing and discouraging experience with the school. I sat my basic handling test, bronze ride forever course and attempted to sit my restricted with them. I sat my bronze in preparation for my restricted test. The trainer informed me that I had the adequate skills and should be able to pass the test. By the time I went to sit my restricted I soon realised I was poorly prepared, having missed crucial things in my course. I missed the opportunity to learn the adequate skills to pass, only to be berated by Dan on my test. It was a shame because it highlighted disparities in expectations between their own courses and tests. I have attempted to provide feedback to Dan, only to have my email unanswered. The whole experience has left me feeling less confident as a rider and less enthusiastic about riding

From being nervous at the beginning to feeling confident at the end of this course. Jared provided information so that I know what to practice for my Restricted License. I would recommend this course for anyone. Thank you so much for putting the pleasure back into my bike riding. Don Lumsden

The instructors are friendly and hugely knowledgeable, and it's a great day for refreshing your motorbike skills. I've done a course each year for three years now (1 Silver and 2 Golds) and plan to keep doing a course every year.

Every skill and experience skill is catered for - I started out as a returning rider age 50, and now three years later ride every day and tour often, doing about 25,000 k a year, but I get just as much value from the courses and enjoy them just as much as I did when I was a newbie.

If you're reading this you're probably wondering whether you should do the course - yes, you should :-). Cheers to Dan, Hank and the team - great job.

I can't highly enough recommend this bronze course. I was a bit anxious in the beginning, but Peter our instructor put me at ease. Each section of the course (theory, practical part, cornering, urban riding etc. ) was so valuable. Peter's way of teaching is fantastic and he is so knowledgeable. I learned on that day more, than in the last 10 years. This certainly gave my confidence a big boost. Our son just did the learner with Dan found this course so valuable as well. He learnt a lot. We had a great ride in the country, did some urban riding and practising other important skills, like emergency braking. And of course had a great lunch and good company. I will certainly put my new skills in the future in to practice. Thanks again for a great day.

I was a little anxious about the training initially but was soon feeling very comfortable with the day. Dan is very approachable and willing to answer all questions you may have about riding a bike. He is a fantastic ambassador for all bike riders out there and I totally recommend this course for anybody looking for that initial confidence on a bike. An awesome ride around the port hills with a nice lunch in between. Great comradeship is formed with a nice small group. Can’t wait to get back and do my CBTA

And even have things to practice. Thanks Pete.

As an older returning rider with many years of not riding, I made a fantastic choice and undertook a Bronze course.
Thank you so very much. A fantastic day and a huge amount learnt.
Pete is a fantastic coach and despite the diversity of the group in age and skills, he made it relevant and enjoyable for each of us.
I highly recommend this course. A day well spent and many new skills taught to ride safer and more confidently.
I will be back for the Silver later.

All trainers are absolutely great, can't recommend them enough. Initially I did Ride Forever Silver as pillion with Pete, then since have done my Learners with Steve, Ride Forever Urban Commuter with Dan, and Ride Forever Bronze with Pete. All the course are worth any motorcyclist doing regardless for new riders or refreshers. I intend to keep doing them annually at minimum. Top trainers!

It was a great day out and my confidence levels have boosted heaps! So much that I have booked in to do the Silver Course next weekend 😁 I recommend these courses to anyone beginner or veteran. Thanks Ornsby Motorcycle Traning!!

Cant beat good friendly,knowledgeable instructors. I have completed two ride forever courses now bronze and silver. Which thanks to these guys have made me a better safer rider and a more confident rider. I couldn't recommend Ornsby Motorcycle training Ltd enough. Thanks guys.

Excellent trainers who are passionate about teaching riding skills. Both the Ride Forever courses, and the track training days that Ornsby Motorcycle Training runs are really valuable, even experienced riders can take away a lot from the day.

Just spend today doing the ride forever bronze course, recommend to all. From the moment the day started we where made to feel welcome and totally put at ease by Dan . I learned alot today out riding, best road positions when cornering ,emergency stops and alot more. Definitely going to continue with the silver course next. If u value your safety on the road book a course you won't regret it.

Awesome riding school and Hollie and Danny are a super combo. Went in with real rudimentary riding skills thinking I'd skittle the BHS test only to realise the serious importance of knowing how to ride the right way. Dan's the man and has helped gradually and super patiently to eradicate some of my very naughty no no habits. This guy is a bike guru and knows his stuff and honestly shares his pearls of wisdom without making you look a noddy in the process. I can really recommend this crowd to anyone even qualified hog riders looking to be better riders. I respect someone who has the honesty to tell someone when they are not doing something quite right instead of just ticking all the boxes and sending newbies off half baked. Respect!

I have just spent the day at a Ride Forever Silver training course with Dan Love.
What a fantastic day, Dan’s approach and knowledge was great.
I have just got back to motorbikes 3 months ago from an absence of 30yrs, I felt I had a reasonable amount of confidence but after spending the day with Dan my confidence and ability to identify and react to situations has grown immensely.
I would recommend to those that are contemplating doing one of these courses to get in and do it.

Great trainers with positive feedback that really helps you understand where you can improve. Would recommend doing these courses even if you think you can ride, always pays to do refreshers and who knows what tips you might pick up.
Have attended courses with both Dan and Hank, can't thank them enough for the encouragement they have given me over the last 12 months of riding.

I did the silver course after 25 years off the bike. Pete was awesome, I learnt heaps...open road cornering & positioning, hill riding, and slow manoeuvres to name a few plus a steady theme of common sense safety tips throughout the day. I'd totally recommend this course!

Did the Gold level course yesterday with hank and it was a fabulous day. I might have been riding since... well let me say well into last century... but you never stop learning. Day started with a good theory session over a coffee on where experienced riders can improve then we hit the road to put it all into action. Great tips given on a stunning ride to Arthurs Pass and back with regular stops to try new drills and benefit from Hank's enormous experience.

Frankly, you would be a mug not to do these courses to keep you safe, especially as ACC kindly sponsor them to keep the cost down to less than a cheap night at the flicks with the Missus! Where else can you get 8 hours of top quality training for $50?

Awesome trainer with Hank who gently pointed out my many faults with my Basic handling skills test.
I do have an issue with the layout of the course which I found confusing. I was expecting it to at least resemble in some way the advertising on their website. Cut Tennis balls marking the course didn't quite cut it for me. Overall a good place for training, not so for sitting your test.

No blame and no BS motorcycle perception training. Pete instructs all about the rider's own responsibility rather than blaming others when something goes wrong. Unlike university lectures the course consisted of 60/40 listening and asking questions, and the questions were answered in "real world" sense by a former police officer. Well worth the training and discussion/ idea sharing. On top of that what can go wrong when the entire 8 hour course costs only $50?
