3 Counties Motorcycle Training Testimonials


Thank you for booking a course with 3CMT. Please leave tetimonials for future customers.

Having ridden a 50cc for the past couple of years I jumped in with both feet for the DAS course with 3CMT... No regrets at all... Perfect communication, organised everything from CBT, theory and 4 day course including mod1 and 2....never ridden a manual before and due to Stuart's direct no hassle teaching I picked up all the key points and skills to pass first time Including a clean sheet for Mod2....so I say again no regrets... If you are thinking of booking.... Book 3CMT
I'd like to thank you for helping Rafal with his cbt, he enjoyed it ( except for freezing his ***** 's off) bloody English weather lol, again thx

Would defiantly recommend you guys to anyone
I was advised from a number of my friends to take my DAS course with 3CMT. Best choice I have ever made! I have never sat on a bike before and Stuart is a brilliant trainer and helps you through everything and at the same time he made the course a fun place to be. If you are looking to do any course or training I would strongly recommend these guys. Worth every penny.
Great Training/Safety and style of riding is second to none.

Thanks Stu.
Just had to send a review in about learning with Stuart. He loves to ride and knows what he's doing which makes training with him a blast. He's honest and straight shooting, always willing to give pointers, talk through situations and most of all keep his students safe while learning. Can't thank Stuart enough for the training, it was just what was needed to get me back on two wheels.
Thanks Stu,
I first took a CBT refresher course with 3CMT, and then a year later came back for my DAS.
Stuart is a very knowledgeable rider/instructor, easy to get on with, and purveys his instructions very well.
I enjoyed my training immensely and truly felt a more capable rider after my course. As a result I feel a lot safer on the roads as well.
I highly recommend booking your training with 3CMT.
Stuart is excellent. As a new rider he tailored my tuition to a style that enabled me to get the most out of our time together. Not only did I learn how to ride a motorcycle, I learnt how to ride properly and most importantly, Safely.
I took lessons from other schools before. I can honestly say that 3CMT is the best in its class.
If you are unsure about learning look no further. 3CMT will get you biking in no time at all.
Passed mod 2 today. Great instruction from Stuart. First instructor I've had who understands how people learn and gets the best out of you as a result. Great instructor, nice teaching style and spot on technically. Learnt a lot and enjoyed myself. Thanks!
I did my CBT with 3 Counties, back in 2012. I then went on to ride a Yamaha R125 for almost 2 years. When I, finally, decided to pull my thumb out and progress with my licence, Stu and 3 Counties were the first people I thought of getting to help me. I didn't have much time before my CBT ran out and didn't want to bother doing that all over again and because I work, it meant that time was even tighter. Thanks to Stuart being so flexible, we were able to get 3 days of training booked and the Mod 1 & 2 booked too. With his close instruction and care, he was able to get rid of all the bad habits I had picked up the 2 years spent out on my 125 and I passed last week. I certainly feel that things would have been quicker and even easier if I had just followed Stuart's advice....and progressed with my Mod 1&2 straight after my CBT. Whatever happens, Stuart and 3 Counties are the team to get you that license. Plus, on your training, you will be taken to some great little cafes to go back to once you have your own gear!
Copied from an e-mail and posted on behalf of customer by 3CMT:

Just a quick email, to say thanks to you both again! A1 instructors and will recommend 3CMT to anyone I know wanting to do a bike test, really couldn't fault your teaching
Many thanks again
Hi Stuart,
Thank you for you patience in training probably the most inept motorcyclist you have ever met! Not only did I pass my test first time, but you gave me the tools to develop my skills in the future. Your roadside briefings, although at times hard to take, were exceptional. Your photographic recall of every point are a tribute to your professionalism. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any future motorcyclist. Thanks very much for all your hard work.
Kind regards.
Hi Stuart,

I hope all is well. I wanted to e-mail a testimonial as I did promise I would when I passed a couple of weeks back!

I must say I found the approach teaching me how to ride a bike was just right. A definite 'firm hand' when I did something wrong/ potentially dangerous but with good banter throughout. I enjoyed the experience but was most impressed as Stuart's key concern was not purely to get me trough the test and forget about me, but to keep me safe on the road going forward. In fact one of the most serious de-briefs I received was once I had passed my Mod 2 and relaxed a bit too much on the way back!!

Would definitely recommend! In fact I already have!
"Last year I signed up for the DAS Course with 3CMT, I had no prior riding experience, but after 5 days of intense (but fun) training, I passed mod 1 and 2 on the same day. This was solely down to Stu's exceptional talents as an instructor. Stu didn't just teach me the practical skills in order to pass the tests, he gave me the tools to ride efficiently and safely in the future. Skills which have also made me a better driver. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Stu if you are looking at doing ANY kind of motorcycle training. I wouldn't recommend anyone else."

Before the training, I thought I didn't need much help! I was wrong.
Training has proved to be invaluable, my safety has improved and made my experience more enjoyable.

I thought Stuart was a very good instructor, very particular about everything.
The smallest details do not go unnoticed. I know Stuart wants you to do well and takes his job very seriously.
Hope all the best to him in the future.

I have attached both reports for you to use as you wish as I have spoken to other friends of mine that are new bikers and they have said that two clean sheets are very impressive.
I believe it was the dedication of yourself and the course layout that helped me achieve my life long goal to be able to ride a motorcycle legally and safely.
Once again thanks a lot Stuart for your professional approach to teaching me how to ride.

Hi Stuart,
I will heartily admit to being a poor tester; a bag of nerves and usually focused on something trivial.
Dave reintroduced the basics of motorcycling in such an easy way for the CBT, it really didn't feel like 30 years since riding a bike.
Stuart's training was firm but calming, his patience tested by several 'brain farts', but everything he taught fell into place for both Mod 1 and Mod 2.
His approach to the summing up after each section gave me a chance to realise how to make riding safer and smoother, whilst pointing out the potential dangers.
Thank you Dave and thank you Stuart for setting everything up, for your training and for calming me down before the tests- I really could not have passed without your ppositive vibes.
I will be considering 3CMT for the ERS
