We believe that learner motorcyclists deserve the best possible environment to train in and that high quality machinery and equipment are not just an advantage, but are essential. In particular we are the only local company to use the New Yamaha XJ600 motorcycles that are complaint with the European Third directive and also have our own manufactured rider protection bars. We also use new fuel injected Yamaha YBR125cc motorcycles and our mopeds are all new Piagio Zip 50cc with a unique rider protection system. We are proud that we are the only regional company to utilise new machinery that has specifically designed rider safety equipment to help you through your test.

Diane Birch passed her full motorbike licence with Camrider

Diane Birch - Passed with Camrider

Diane first saw Camrider at the BMF show in Peterborough where we were running free try it out sessions.

"I was impressed with the quality and service of Camrider, but did have a look around to check on prices. I finally chose Camrider not only because I could be sure of the quality, but also their prices were better."

"I would certainly recommend Camrider to people considering getting a bike licence."



Tim Russell passes his motorcycle test with Camrider
Tim Russel - Passed with Camrider

"I found all aspects of the service that you provide to be exemplary; the admin & organisation is first-rate, the standard of instruction is quite excellent (and thoroughly consistent between instructors; the hallmark of a professional outfit), and the instructors overwhelming enthusiasm is very well balanced with a quiet determination that you will succeed first time and survive on a bike thereafter.

I was very much impressed with the pearls of wisdom imparted to all Students; irrespective of age or experience; which demonstrated more of a warm welcome to the biking fraternity than a slavish obsession with just passing each test module - again, high-quality tuition, administered individually and effectively!

Perhaps more than my thanks at ensuring a first-time pass for me (and so many others), and for the voices that I can still hear keeping me safe, I am left with the abiding memory of just how much fun it all was; priceless!

Again, my thanks to you all.

Yours sincerely,

Tim Russell"
