We're so honoured to receive so many lovely reviews from our past students, we can't believe that we now have over 135 reviews on Google! It's simply amazing, and we couldn't be more thankful to you all for supporting our business.
I just wanted to quickly highlight this recent review we got on Google as it's a perfect example of our processes and what you can expect on the day/s of your training. Many thanks to Sam for leaving such a nice review, and a big well done from all of us for passing!
"I completed my CBT and DAS course with A2Z and passed all first time!
The CBT is an hour in a car park followed by 90-120 mins on the quiet residential roads around Islington. If you're doing the DAS then you can complete the CBT on a manual geared 125, which is a good starter towards the big bike. CBTs are done in groups of 6, which can split to ensure groupings of similar ability.
Tina did a great job at scheduling the DAS course around my diary, which was 4 days training (6 hours a day) followed by both mod 1 & 2 tests on the 5th day.
Day 1 is an introduction to the big bike, of which A2Z have a fleet of brand new Yamaha MT07 ABS which are great to ride a look wicked (so much so I picked mine up yesterday!). You'll spend the first day riding around Islington learning junction discipline and then the remaining days are up around Enfield, Waltham Abbey and Chingford which are where the mod 2 test routes are, picking out specific tricky potential parts of test routes to practice. The great approach to the training is that time isn't spent riding around cones in preparation for mod 1, it's spent riding on the roads of which the scenarios you ride are then related back to the types of maneuvers on mod 1 exercises, killing two birds with one stone.
Every day will rendez-vous at the DVSA test centre, to get used to the surroundings of the test centre and where the mod 1 test is held - there are opportunities to watch each exercise in test and on the 4 day A2Z take you onto the Mod 1 yard to do practice runs of each exercise before the test on day 5 (not all schools do this). It's clear that A2Z really commit and pride themselves on a 95%+ pass rate on mod 1!
The DAS is completed with 1 other student, so 2 students to 1 instructor. Ossie and Shane are absolutely fantastic instructors - clearly are both experienced, safe and credible riders and instructors (Shane used to be an examiner, which is great experience for mock tests). But mostly, they're a good laugh, patient and tailor the course to your needs and areas of development. Tina runs the show and all runs brilliantly! My mod 2 test got cancelled by the DVSA but Tina managed to get me rebooked in weeks rather than the 3 months the DVSA were quoting!
Overall, if I could give these guys 6 stars I would - the whole course from start to finish was enjoyable, great quality and without any issues. My perception was that A2Z are head and shoulders above the other schools you see up at the test centre in professionalism and genuine care for students success.
Thanks a lot, guys - I'll definitely be seeing you in the future for some advanced training!"
