Motorbike training by professionals...

Are you a complete beginner or have limited experience? It's no matter, you're at the right place. Whether you want to just commute to work on a 125cc, or want a full licence for that Route 66 US tour, we've got you covered, with CBT - Compulsory Basic Training, or DAS - Direct Access courses.

We are based in the gorgeous Vale of Glamorgan countryside and have 72,000 sq ft of tarmac for you to use.

Space like that can make a huge difference to a rider’s confidence and we often get customers coming from across South Wales and even England, because of our facilities.

We are a Honda Approved Training School, with new, clean Hondas for you to ride. Throw into the mix, seven Police Advanced Bikers as trainers and you’ll understand that we’ve gone all out for you to have the best experience and training available!

We are "can do" people and DON’T shout at our customers.

A brand-new model in the Honda range. The important information for new riders is that it is a bike that is very easy to use. The clutch is gradual and predictable and it has a smooth, four cylinder engine. The dash has a large, rich, LCD display and even an upshift indicator, let you know when to change gears. The tapered handlebars offer easy leverage for fast steering reaction. Other features for those in the know include, LCD lighting so that you’re easily seen, upside down front forks (very cool), a slipper clutch, radial brakes and ABS for great stopping power and 94bhp!
Suzuki SFV650

The students favourite! SFV650 ABS is a perfectly balanced, rider friendly middleweight V- twin that appeals to a huge audience of novice and experienced riders of all ages. It’s easy to ride, while also being fun and importantly, it has a low seat height and low centre of gravity making it great for all riders.

Honda CB125F

Honda CB125F

The perfect beginners bike. It’s very forgiving, even in the most clumsy of hands, it has a lower seat height and is physically smaller than the Honda it replaced. The perfect bike for CBT’s, it even has a gear indicator to remind you what gear you’re in!

Having trainers that can keep lessons fun, whilst packing in the riding advice makes for an unforgettable experience. We do not shout at our students!

Steve Davey - Owner & Instructor

Steve is a motorcycle enthusiast to his core, there’s not much he hasn’t done on 2 wheels. He’s been a Police advanced biker for 17 years and also a Police Advanced Motorcycle Instructor for both on and off road. He likes to throw in the odd bike trick or two. An extremely friendly chap, he’ll share his biking knowledge all day long.

Simon Smith - Instructor

Simon has been riding bikes since he was a nipper, field bikes to start with, before getting his full licence in the 90’s. As is the case with a lot of the VMT team, he’s been lucky to get professionally trained as an advanced Police biker whilst at work, with the Met. Being a fully fledged member of the ‘Black Rats’, we snapped up his skills when he moved back home to Wales. Simon has a lovely manner but don’t let that plumb accent fool you, he’s an earthy Welshman at heart. Must be cool, as he’s ridden a bike around the Nurburgring. Rumour has it, that he was once a hairdresser!

  • Background: Police Advanced Biker / Driver Bikesafe Assessor
  • Quals:DSA Approved CBT / DAS Instructor since 2011, Grade 1 Police Rider & Driver, RoSPA Gold Rider, Rugby Referee

Darryl Hanks - Instructor & Police Patrol Rider

Darryl could be classed as a bike trader, he’s bought and sold so many! He’s a guy who has quickly developed into a very accomplished rider. In 3 short years, he went from complete novice to Advanced Police rider which is no mean feat. It’s safe to say that he has a natural talent for riding which is invaluable when it comes to passing knowledge onto others. Please don’t bring up his fame of Silver Screen, or he’ll be offering his autograph!
