I was very nervous about learning to ride, I was afraid of being a potential hazard or inconvenience to people. I haven’t got very much coordination and I’m awful at multitasking. I was pretty terrified of taking my CBT. Two years ago I was also diagnosed as autistic. I made my instructor aware of this fact on arrival, he took this into consideration for the entire day. He ask me how autism affected me and told me to do what I needed to remain calm and focused. On arrival my instructor, Steve, introduced himself making us feel welcomed. He offered us a cup of tea and explained the activities of the day. We went through each step thoroughly, taking breaks in between. We all got to know each other and shared quite a few laughs. He even brought us each an ice cream. He made us aware of the mistakes we made, gave advice on how to improve and explained the purpose of each action. All the while encouraging us to have confidence in our ability I was most nervous about riding on the road, but twenty minutes in and I was completely at ease and having a wonderful time. Our instructor gave us each an earpiece and explained each manoeuvre to us by means of a one way radio. He observed us whilst we rode, complimenting us on our ability and giving advice where necessary. My first thought after finishing the two hour training on the road, was that of eagerness to go out again. I had a wonderful time, the staff members I met were all very knowledgeable, welcoming and supportive. Thank you Camrider.

Everyone I interacted with was incredibly friendly and helpful. Instructors on both of my test days put me at ease and made sure I had done everything I could to pass before the event. Would recommend to anyone 👍

I undertook my CBT with Camrider in Eye with absolutely no experience with bikes, other than cycling and once using a twist an go scooter. It was quite the most intense day I’ve had in years, but I worth it. I learnt so much which is just as applicable to driving a car as a bike. Tony and Steve were superb with a great way of teaching; friendly and informative. Highly recommended. Thank you both.
