After a bad experience with another company i came to shires and was made to feel welcome, with the instructors being very patient and professional. I am happy to say they got me through both mod 1 and 2. Thank you shires !

Cannot recommend shires enough!! From staff all the way down to the kit they provide. Kit is top notch, bikes are well maintained and most of them new. And the staff are on a different level, making you feel at ease and always making the training environment fun. My father and I both passed our full motorbike licence within a month. All the way from cbt up to Mod 2. Great company. Best in town!!

Passed my A2 with them today! Can't thank them enough for the training they've provided; it was explained well, demonstrated well, and executed well and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone wanting to learn. However most of all the fun had whilst doing it makes it a pleasant experience rather than a stressful one :) thanks guys

Initially went to Derbyshire Motorcycle School having never ridden a bike before. All they wanted to do was take my money and waste my time! Avoid them at all costs !! I then went to Shires in Derby ! Wow what a difference! Wonderful people! Lovely new Bikes and clothing! Excellent value for money. I have taken my CBT, my CBT Plus, Mod 1 and just passed my Mod 2 with them. I have had a fabulous time . They are all great people and offer a really friendly service. Thank you all so much.

The Shires team in Derby are absolutely first class in every way. Whether it is Emily in the office with her enthusiasm and cheerful confidence boosting soothing words or the range of hugely experienced and patient instructors; Colin, Mark and John who took me from complete novice to passing my Mod II in little over 4 weeks was nothing short of amazing. These guys are a class act and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Had a great day doing my CBT a week ago with Colin at West Bridgford. I was returning to biking after 40 years! Colin put me at ease and it didn't take long for it to come back to me and for the wobbles to go away. As Colin said, "it's like riding a bike"! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shires. They are very friendly and very professional. I look forward to using Shires again in future when eventually I'll go for my full test.
