Willem is a great instructor - patient and thorough, if you want one to one teaching and care, he’s your man! From CBT though to DAS full license

Passed my DAS with Willem after doing my cbt a while ago with him. Training was well planned and accommodating. Willems experience and training methods were tailored to suit. Overall excellent experience, would highly recommend.

Just passed Direct Access at first time of asking today with Willem Louw motorcycle training. Also used him for CBT. Excellent guy and trainer, teaches you beyond what is required for just passing which gives you confidence for the test and beyond. Excellent training bikes also. Will no doubt use his services again for advanced training in the future once I've built up some riding experience. Thanks again Willem. Paul.

Shame it only gives five stars because I would it give six. Fantastic bloke to learn to ride from, very easy and fun to learn. He breaks everything down so its simple to understand and is patient when you just can't quite get it. Will definitely be coming back for the next step.

A massive thank you getting me through my Mod 1 & 2.

The Guru ‘Willem’ helped me overcome my U Turns, as I was struggling & also cornering techniques to improve my riding.
I’m sure he’s secretly a Jedi.

Chrissy helped me to improve my riding & build my confidence leading up to my Mod 1 & 2.
Chrissy’s experience & genuine encouragement shone through, not to mention her wicked sense of humor.

Willem put me at ease during my training.
It’s been an absolute pleasure, even getting soaked to the skin on our way to Scunthorpe test pad.

Now I’m looking forward to my journey ahead.

Wow what a great instructor, so calm with a great sense of humour.
I have just taken my CBT with Willem and I have to say it was a really fun experience.
He has boosted my confidence out on the road and has certainly made me a much safer rider.
Willem is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of motorcycle training, and rightly so he takes it very seriously, but with some added humour to make it a really fun experience.
These are difficult times and Willem has clearly worked very hard to put in place all the necessary Social Distancing measures to make the day safe for both parties. I run a mid sized factory and understand Health and Safety extremely well. I can say that the measures Willem has put in place are well thought out and worked very well.
I would definitely recommend training with him and I will certainly be back to complete the rest of my motorcycle licence with him.

Willem is a first-class instructor; I cannot recommend him highly enough. His professionalism, patience, attention to detail and commitment are exemplary. He is truly passionate about what he does, and it clearly shows. He teaches you to ride well above and beyond what is needed to pass the test. Above all he is a thoroughly nice guy which makes learning all the more pleasurable.

Willem is extremely attentive, and has shown time and time again throughout our training that as well as wanting you to become the best rider you can be, he is also considerate of the welfare of his students and ensuring that a plan can be put together to ensure that you are able to train based on your needs and around your schedule.

When personal issues meant that I couldn't focus on my training, it was also easy to reschedule and rebook sessions.There was even a session when I was struggling to ride at my usual standard, so Willem advised we stop and rebook it for another day. He understood that there was no point in continuing if I couldn't focus and we couldn't have fun.

Willem being both an experienced rider and instructor, as well as a kind person, will do whatever he can do to help his students, which is a perfect combination of qualities for anyone who is wanting to learn to ride.

What can I say about this fella! An absolutely top tier teacher and what’s even better is that he’s a great character as well, there was never a dull moment and I’m sure his former students would say the same! He really cares about perfecting your skills so you can get through your test as fast as you can but also with the highest possible degree of excellence and training. At the end of the day when you get on a motorbike safety is vital and Willem really does ensure those factors are instilled into your brain, so even if you’ve never ridden a bike before don’t worry because he’ll help you with everything. Would highly recommend even if you’re a novice or have prior experience and want a few refresher courses! I’d give him 6*’s if that was possible!!

Absolutely fantastic experience ,was looking and phoning around different riding schools, but as soon as I spoke to Willem I knew he was the one.
Not just a riding instructor Willem takes time to get to know you how you work etc and what will work best for you , very individual plan and was there every step for me even when not in lessons reassuring me over the phone, He went above and beyond. if your looking for a CBT or riding lessons trust me look no further as  Willem is by far the best you'll get , plus I've ended up with 2 genuine friends from this whole experience and for that I can only say thank you both with all my heart. Thanks guys for teaching me how to ride properly and with more confidence, can't say thank you enough

Fantastic instructor! I went from never sitting on a bike to a full licence with Willem.

He teaches in a way that works best for you, works around your schedule and more importantly how to be a safe rider!

I Fully recommend Willem if you want to learn to ride!

I enjoyed every minute of my time learning with Willem going from CBT to full Licence with confidence of becoming a better competent rider with the skills and technique which were taught to me , I would totally recommend them for anyone looking at one to one training ,their the best .

I would like to say a huge thank you to Willem for quickly rearranging my direct access course. Having completed my CBT at the beginning of May and then having an accident in my garden and unable to complete the rest of my course. No problem to Willem, he managed to get it all rearranged and sorted when I was fit and well to complete my course. I can’t thank MCG enough for all her patience, perseverance and expertise in getting me through and pass. I would recommend without reservations training with Willem Louw for your motorcycle training. Thank you

Willem is fantastic instructors. I came to them with no prior experience with riding a motorcycle and managed to pass both my mod 1 and mod 2 tests on the first go. I opted to go for an intensive course and I managed to learn to ride a motorcycle in 2 months. What I have learnt from the instructors extends beyond just riding a motorcycle and is something I will keep with me for the rest of my life. YOU WILL NOT REGRET CHOOSING WILLEM FOR YOUR INSTRUCTOR!

I cannot speak highly enough of the training willem has given me. Willem is great and patient teacher who is always positive and gives you confidence. Willem is a great character and easy to get on with and most importantly he is passionate about motorbikes. So if you want to learn how to ride a motorbike correctly and most importantly safely then use willem for your training.

Willem has been a great instructor. As a 16 year old novis rider I was quite nervous, but Willem made me feel relaxed from day 1 and helped me build my confidence up to complete my CBT. I really enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend him if you would like to learn how to ride. Thanks Willem!

I met Willem today and he should keep what it is like to ride a motorcycle. His teaching is amazing, I would not ask for a better coach. After going to do my CBT at another place and didn't really get along very well, Willem took me and should me the proper way of riding. We had a laugh and he certainly knows his stuff about motorcycles. Thank you very very much Willem for all to have done today and I will be coming back to you very soon to covert to a geared bike. 10/10 experience.

Miss Sarah Jackson

Willem got me through my A2 licence, mod 1 and mod 2. He made my experience of gaining my licence enjoyable. He taught how to not just pass the test but to ride actually ride at the same time. He takes extra time to explain the extra details to make you a better rider.

Thanks for all your help Willem and I look forward to getting my next licence with you.

Willem, was a great instructor, made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The one-to-one sessions were very constructive, addressing and working on my weak points and building my confidence. Even though my test was postponed 2 times (due to COVID lockdown) Willem made the necessary arrangements to rebook my test and squeeze in extra refresher lessons. Ended up passing 1st time this is due to mainly in part to WIllem's excellent instruction and help! Would definitely recommend. Many thanks Willem. Paul Brookes (Doncaster)

Willem is an amazing instructor - he has been brilliant at teaching me how to ride and most importantly ride safely. I am looking forward to booking some advanced courses now I have the bike bug and in the meantime using my Ducati (midlife crisis)!!! Thanks so much Willem - highly recommended.

Fantastic day today, passed Mod 2 with the help of Willem.

After passing my CBT with Willem last September I got back in touch with Willem to progress to my big bike test. After 2 big sessions (one of which was extremely wet) I passed.

Great friendly service, always better having one on one training 👍🏻


Found Willem when doing an internet search for obtaining my bike licence. So glad I did, he advised and guided me through the process making it very simple. Completed my CBT, MOD 1 and MOD 2 with Willem guiding me all the way. The tuition was both friendly and enjoyable making me feel at ease all the way. I would recommend Willem 100% for getting yourself on two wheels.

Passed thanks to Willem. I went for the direct access route after riding a 125 for a year. After reviewing my riding in the first lesson the plan they put together for me was perfect. The advice and tips given were always right on the mark and this really helped me become a better rider. Friendly, responsive and supportive.

I passed my CBT today with Willem. What a fantastic guy. Willem made the whole experience fun, he is very patient and you feel comfortable straightaway. I would be fibbing if I didn't say I was nervous but my nerves soon passed. I enjoyed the whole experience and I'm glad I did it. I would highly recommend Willem. Thank you. Marie

Absolutely first class training. Willem doesn't teach you to pass a test. He teaches you to ride. He teaches you to be safe and above all enjoy the thrill of motorcycling. His stellar reputation for excellence is very well deserved and his enthusiasm is infectious.

I had the pleasure of time with both Willem . Everything was made so easy and the instruction was great. Willem is really friendly and a pleasure to ride and train with. I would strongly recommend Willem, especially if one to one training is what you're after, a good way to go if you ask me. Thank you so much both of you


I cannot recommend Willem enough. His love of motorbikes and the general art in riding really shines through. I have learnt so much. He has unbelievable patience which he has needed with me. I cannot recommend this one to one style of learning enough. It’s provided me with a sound knowledge, for a car driver for the last 20 years I did not believe I could learn more and I certainly have. I will be booking in with him soon to take my knowledge even further. Thanks Willem

Willem Louw is the best Motorcycle instructor by a country mile, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and he knows how to have a good laugh. If you can ride, he will tell you, iron out a few bad habits and turn you into an advanced rider in no time. If you can't or have never been on a bike, he will teach you in a very unique way. We had a lot of set backs (ice, snow, cancellations etc) but this never stopped Willem. He doesn't do stress, he doesn't get angry or wound up. He's constantly calm and collected. Very highly recommended. Don't go elsewhere. You won't regret it. Thanks again Willem. I hope to see you soon. Kindest Regards, Josh Wells.

Passed first time with this school. Very easy to deal with and a relaxed approach to it all. Chrissy the instructor is fun and enthusiastic about riding. It made the entire experience enjoyable I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone

Awesome tuition. Willem is the right amount of lovely and professional and helped me pass direct access first time. These are the guys to go to to learn properly and I can’t wait to do some advanced riding with them.

I would highly recommend Willem to anyone thinking about learning to ride a motorcycle, either CBT or full license. I did a direct access course including CBT and Willem not only tailored the training to my exact needs, but also made it great fun as well. He teaches you to not only pass the test but to ride the bike safely and with confidence.

I was a complete novice and very nervous. Willem put me at ease and enabled me to learn to ride. He explained everything in a straightforward manner with patience and good humour. By the end of the day my skills and confidence had grown and I surprised myself by actually enjoying it! Thank you Willem.

1st class instructor. Patient, calm, flexible with times, great bikes. Direct Access done and all passed 1st time under his training within around a month from relative novice; does exactly what its says on the tin.

Passed my MOD1 and MOD2 first time with Willem, lessons felt more like going out for a ride then being under instruction. Having been riding for 1 year on a 125 Willem coached me through the tests. Thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and would recommend.

Got me through my MOD1 and my MOD2 first time. Brilliant instructor. Cannot thank Willem enough for all the experience he has given me. He has given me skills and improved me more than I could imagine. Not only did he teach me to pass my test, he taught me how to properly ride!

I completed my CBT and the whole thing was made enjoyable, even with the British weather and a wobbly start! Willem is knowledgeable, easy to talk to and the perfect instructor. Everything was made clear and constructive with a few laughs in between to make the perfect learning environment. Great experience!

What an awesome experience! Took 5 days to get from doing my theory test to passing. Pain and hassle free. I would highly recommend Willem to anyone that is experienced or just starting out. I work in the motorcycle trade and the level of service in 11/10! Thank you again!

Willem can not be any more highly recommended, in fact, even 5 stars isn’t high enough!
His professionalism, expert knowledge and teaching methods will not only mean that your ride safe & well, but will also have fun doing it, with the ability to walk away with a smile of your face and that blue pass certificate in your hand!!

Do yourself a favour learn to ride with Willem. Training by someone clearly passionate about what they do and seems to focus on turning out riders who know how to ride rather just passing a test. You will be well prepared for your test and more importantly prepared for when you have passed.

I started from scratch 3 months ago. I had purchased a 1969 classic Honda CB 350 and I was itching to take her out for a spin. Willem is the best motorcycle instructor in Yorkshire. Without a doubt. He will mould you into a rider with confidence, ability and his training will keep you safe out there on Yorkshire's roads. Can't thank him enough.

Would highly recommend Willem and Chrissy to get you passed for all motorbike licenses! Super friendly instruction style and they both listen and help with your individual needs to make motorbiking easy! Thanks to both of you for getting me passed!

Just passed Mod 1 & 2 first time with Willem Couldn't recommend this guy highly enough! Excellent training, excellent bikes, and had great fun from start to finish! Also a big thanks to Chrissy for guiding me through the mod 1 Cheers guys much appreciated

Carried out my CBT today. He made me feel very much at easy her confidence and knowledge made the day of learning very enjoyable. Definitely going to be doing any other motorcycle training Willem

Willem is a fantastic instructor. Doesn't waste your time dragging out lessons, great bikes to learn on and super informative and friendly.

Would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks for everything Willem!

I recently did my CBT with Willem, not only did I complete my CBT very smoothly with Chrissy’s expertise and guidance. I also had an absolutely wonderful day with Willem, made me feel extremely comfortable and the day as a whole was a genuinely fun enjoyable experience and my completed CBT was a happy byproduct.
Truly enjoyable and I would highly recommend using this training school and I will definitely be returning to complete my full license in the near future.

Wow! I've completed my CBT and all thanks to Motorcycle guru patience, clear direction and confidence in what I can do. I would not have done it without Him and most certainly wouldn't have enjoyed the whole process as much as I have. Here's to getting on and being able to ride the big boy bikes!! Can't wait to learn more from her.

Brilliant instructor!! Very calm and a great guy to learn with, went from 0 experience to passing both Mod 1 and 2 on the same day within a week of starting my training, Couldn't recommend Willem enough!!!

Would like to take this opportunity to thank willem for helping me get my mod 1 and mod 2 sorted. With his expert knowledge and support he made it a great experience with the goal achieved at the end of it.

Really friendly with nice easy to ride bikes.
I went the direct access route and passed first time on both mod1 and Mod2.
Now comes the hard part of picking my new big bike . If your looking at obtaining your licence then give them a call

I did my direct access course with willem and after a slight hic up on my part I passed , because of the training - support and determination from willem he got me there.
Great guy just to have a chat with and have a laugh , does exactly what it says on the tin  Highly recommended

Excellent experience with Willem really enjoyed it wish I'd done it years ago. Tuition and advice spot on from the word go, very methodical approach without any pressure. Would certainly point anyone wishing to get on a bike in her direction.

One of the best motorbike training schools. Very friendly instructors and great teachers. Passed my mod 1 and mod 2 first time.

Absolutely fantastic training and support given to me by Willem It was my first time on a scooter and very nervous but I cannot recommend enough a lady in willems team chrissy her teaching, professional approach and knowledge got me through my cbt and I cannot thank William and chrissy enough. Highly recommend this motorcycle training team Thank you lynn

Willem is a very calm and relaxed teacher who will not only bring out the best in you but do it in a fun and positive way. Highly recommended.

A massive thank you to Willem for helping me pass my CBT, mod 1 and mod 2. So helpful and very patient from the start which made the whole journey so much easier having not rode before. Thank you guys and see you soon!!

The best bike training I’ve had, talks you through step by step and gradually paced with no pressure, giving you the confidence you need to get the test done.

Amazing instructor! Really good 1 on 1 teach and aloud me to relax and enjoy the riding experience. I will definitely be coming back to get my full license.

I recently got through my MOD1 and 2 with Willem and couldn't recommend him highly enough. He was incredibly patient and built a programme specifically for my requirements. Thanks for everything 

Passed my CBT, Mod1 and Mod 2 first time thanks to  Willem great teaching!

This is the second time I have gone to Willem for my CBT, the first time was spot on around 3 years ago and after it ran out I wanted to do it again and I did it  again it was a smoothly run day and I really enjoyed it, I would definitely recommend
Update: I have now passed my A2 test, I can’t fault Willem with the help and support that they have provided me with, they make sure that you’re test ready and comfortable and I will be going to them again for a 3rd time to do my full bike test in a couple of years.

Had an amazing day on my CBT, Willem helped with all my problems and we had a great laugh during our session, I highly recommend you visit this instructor

I'm so happy with everything I done today with my cbt they are both lovely people, taking you through step-by-step if you do not understand anything they are amazing people I am so happy I have gone with them again and I can't wait to go in for my big bike test with them thank you both for listening to me n understanding me too.

Just completed my CBT with Willem and going all the way to an unrestricted licence with him. Very professional and patient. Highly recommended.

Brilliant teacher and a really nice guy, wouldn’t recommend anybody else to learn with.
Never ridden a big bike before and he got me through both my tests.
Absolute legend

Great experience passing my test with willem. Would 100% recommend. Just felt like I was out on the bike with friends.

Brilliant 1 week intensive course to pass MOD1 and MOD2, highly recommend Chrissy and Willem for all future learners!

A very professional and personally tailored approach to getting me on two wheels, navigating the pandemic to deliver me at each stage of the process perfectly prepared to pass! And a great team as well!

Sound patient guy. Respectful of your experience or lack of experience. Teaches you good riding techniques. Used him for a CBT and will be going back this year for direct access. Won't even consider going elsewhere

I would highly recommend Willem louw to anyone wanting to do they're CBT, not only did I learn so much about how to ride safely and the best gear to wear but I had a great time doing so, thankyou so much Willem your a top bloke .

Massive thanks to Willem and Chrissy for all the training and

Brilliant cbt today ..would definitely recommend !

Amazing instructor with lots of patience

My last motorbike was in 1980 and after breaking my leg in an accident I gave up on motorcycles until at the age of 58.


I decided to do my full motorbike license!


So I booked in with a training school and almost gave up, this was in part due to my anxiety and how the way the instructor made me feel. His attitude was lacking compassion and care.


I had bought a Triumph 500 Trophy in anticipation of passing my test and ticking an item off my bucket list but I nearly decided to sell my bike and give up.


Luckily I spoke to a friend and he recommended A1 motorcycle at the time they couldn’t help but Bros made a call to Willem Louw on my behalf, thankfully Petrol Ponies took me on.


Willem and Chrissy were brilliant and patience. The way in which they took me back to basics and help my anxiety and keeping me confident in my ability was a breath of fresh air.


In October of 2021 after almost a year of disappointment I passed my mod 1, one week later I passed my Mod 2 (first attempt)


I am forever great full to the lads at A1 and Andy especially for bringing me together with Willem and Chrissy.


Both Willem and Chrissy are fantastic training me and nurturing me to a great level of competence

Today the 6th of November one day after passing my full test at Rotherham DVSA


Thank you  Willem and Chrissy


You are both stars in my eyes I’m forever grateful

And wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone

God bless you both

The power of one
