1st Gear Motorcycle Training School

We lead, others follow

We are a friendly motorcycle training school based in Aldershot covering Hampshire and Surrey. We are a DVSA Approved Training Centre with Qualified and Experienced instructors.

All our instructors will ensure your individual training requirements are met through the courses available. We have a private, off-road training facility for you to start your learning before you venture on to the road, and can take you from passing your CBT through to your full licence.

Our motorcycle training school is situated only 10 minutes from the Farnborough Test Centre. Unlike many training centres, we conduct all our Module 1 Training in a safe off-road environment, with dedicated Module 1 training time.

Module 2 Training is conducted in the local area where you will be tested.

1st Gear has been training new motorcyclists for 20 years, and now trained over 25,000 new riders!

Our Riders Say…

Excellent instructors, very thorough and patient and helped build my confidence riding my first manual bike, definitely going back here to do my next bike test.

Our Riders Say…

I really cant praise all the guys at 1st Gear enough. The training is excellent and you really get the feeling they want you to succeed. Had a lot more time on the road than I was expecting over the 3 days I spent with them and it showed.I took my full A licence tests and was completely prepared, passing with just 1 minor.1st Gear was recommended to me and I have already been doing the same. Thanks Michelle and everyone!

Our Riders Say…

I don’t often write reviews for things but I felt I had to for 1st Gear. I have completed CBT and DAS over the last few weeks and have nothing but praise for their whole team. The process was incredibly simple from initial booking right the way through to final testing.

– Jonny

Our Riders Say…

Passed my Mod 2 yesterday after doing a 4 day course with these guys. Every one of them are there to help you and get you through, be it a CBT or your A license. If you wanna learn to ride, look no further than 1st Gear Farnbourough. I will be popping back to see them all with my new bike
