Felix Akuoko

These guys are AMAZING! They aim to train you past the point of which you’ll be tested and they are genuinely very supportive and fun. They clearly Love what they do and what to help make people better riders. I am very grateful for your patience, stern words at times (I can hear you in my head at times) and the laughs during downtime. I look forward to seeing you again when I’m ready to do an advanced rider course. Word to the wise. Make sure you buy a Highway Code Handbook and read it, use it to go over day to day scenarios to go through. Ride safe and best of luck to anyone using this to decide if you want to use CamRider Lee Valley to train you up. Trust the process and listen to Richard and Chris they know what they’re talking about.🍻 Cheers Gents

My experience with Camrider in Lee Valley was great. My instructors, Chris and Richard, were super helpful and lovely to interact with. Booking my classes was straight-forward, and Dan over the phone was able to effectively work around my work schedule. I would definitely recommend it to any rider.

Thanks to Richard, Tim and Gary I managed to pass Module 1 and 2 1st time with no prior riding experience! I really did not know what I was getting myself into at first and really had no clue how difficult riding a manual motorcycle was or is! They really took the time to explain and teach me what I needed to know. They are top guys, excellent teachers and I would have no hesitation to recommend them to anybody.
