Brilliant day with Pit Stop Guys – Newport Isle of Wight
The guys at Pit Stop are really friendly and fun but also reinforced the safety requirements for riding on the road. I learnt more today about riding a motorbike safely on the road than ever before. They take your training at the pace required to make it safe to ride on the road. Thanks, guys for being patients with me and awarding me my CBT. I recommend Pit Stop with 5 Star rating. Thank you guys it was so much fun.
5 star training
Paul, Martin and the rest of the team got me through my cbt, mod1 and mod 2 in the space of a week. They are all very friendly and relaxed but totally thorough and professional and i find myself doing "life saver" checks now even when walking the dogs.
Excellent in every respect!
A huge thank you to Paul, Phil, Martin and everyone at Pit Stop. From a previous less-than-happy experience on two wheels, your approach was perfect for me. Lots of positive reinforcement, good humour, encouragement and masses of excellent professional advice. Pit Stop has a unique way of dealing with people; as well as a death of technical expertise and significant experience as bikers and trainers, they have brilliant people skills too. The ethos and whole feel of the experience was wonderful! Finally passed my CBT - thanks to Pit Stop. Would recommend anyone to go there for bike training at any level.
An Amazing Journey
Met Paul and his lovely wife at the London bike show, after chatting to them for a few minutes about wanting to do my full license they proposed a great deal and Paul promise that he would be able to teach me and get me through my CBT, Mod1 and Mod2 in just under a week, baring in mind the last time I had done a CBT was 5 years prior and had never ridden since.
I accepted his challenge and booked a week on the Isle of Wight.
I got back home yesterday with all of Paul’s promises made to reality. Apart from keeping his promise he is an amazing bloke with a great family of instructors who teach to a very high standard.
I could go on and on about how great Paul, Paul B. and Steve treated me.
From the get go making me feel comfortable, welcome and going above and beyond to accommodate. It’s not just a job for these guys, it’s a passion and that shows. If your thinking or wanting to take your bike test on any level then speak to these guys. You won’t regret it.
Can’t thank them enough, they are great!
Excellent DAS training, with a great club atmosphere !
I have driven a car for many years , being 58 now seems like the right time to learn to ride a big bike!?, (never ridden before) So after phoning Paul and joining “the club” , 6 weeks later I now have the full bike license, with thanks to Paul, Colin and Chris with their expertise in intensive DAS training,
Top Isle of Wight School.
Friendly yet professional
At the age of 38 i decided i wanted to learn to ride a motorbike, never rode one before, i was a complete beginner. Two of my mates passed their tests through Paul and his company Pitstop training so i thought i would give them a go. So glad i did, Paul was very patient and accomodating when it came to training around my shifts. I would 100% recommend Pitstop training for anybody wanting to learn from scratch or brush up on their skills. Thanks again Paul and thank you for introducing me to pillion passenger transport, i wont forget that in a hurry.
Massive thank you to Paul, Colin and the team. Passed both modules first time with their expertise and guidance. Had a good laugh with them all and they were very flexible and able to work around my work shift pattern. Thanks again pit stop training keep up the good work.
Just to thank you once again for the refresher course you gave me a few weeks ago, it has given me the confidence to get back to biking after 45 years.
I have bought myself the bike i always wanted and will pop in and see you all probably in the New Year.
If i don't see you before have a great Christmas and a safe New Year.
PS. I can still hear the sounds of "More Gas" echoing in my ears *:) happy
did my cbt the other day.....havent riden a bike in 30yrs....my instructor paul ( NOT THE OWNER )was excellent...he took his time with me and explained everything very clearly and slowly....made me feel very comfortable on the bike.....had a good day but also a fun day....many thanks to paul and paul the owner
Had a good laugh with the blokes, did my geared cbt with pit stop and would highly recommend. I've done it before but was still very nervous. The guy that took me out reassured me 100% I was doing everything right. I will be contacting Paul to do my full test. Thanks guys!!
A very big thank you to Paul, who has helped me pass my test, he's very understanding and patient, I passed first time. He always helped me out, letting me make monthly payments, due to me being in part time employment. It was a pleasure doing my training with him and always a laugh.
I want to say a big thank you to Paul about that put driving the scooter , I speak bad English but he had the patience to tell me everything and show very good attitude
Paul is a great instructor, he is patient and understanding, he helped me to sail through both my Mod 1 & Mod 2 first time, I've now been able to plan a trip to Europe on my new bike! Had a great laugh along the way. I would definitely recommend Pit-Stop Training to anyone who is thinking about having lessons.
I had a really good time to day I did my gear cbt and I learnt a lot had a good laugh and good teacher
I did my CBT with Pit Stop Training at short notice and they were very accommodating, giving me a Saturday Morning slot. I have a lot of trials riding experience but they were very professional in ensuring all the basics were still covered before heading out on the road.
Nice guys and a fun course, would highly recommend.
What a fantastic training team, I started off having never ridden a bike before, I wanted a company that could train me from absolute novice to being able to ride unrestricted. After emailing Pit-stop with a few questions, and receiving very quick and informative replies and very reasonable pricing, I was booked in for my CBT, this was conducted in a fantastic manner and I felt really well supported and gained a solid foundation of riding knowledge. A week later I was training for my module 1 test. Being at university and working made my free time very limited but Paul made sure to work around this to meet my needs. Paul's delivery of the training for module 1 was faultless, using a replicated setup of the test, this worked wonders in preparing me for the real test and helped with any "fear of the unknown". After completing this and getting christmas out the way, module two training was to a very high standard, sometimes on a 1-1 basis and other times in small groups, which makes for good practice. After passing my Module 2 test with only 1 minor, I CANNOT stress enough how much I would recommend Pit-stop Training. An absolutely faultless service, for very reasonable prices. I was able to gain an Unrestricted licence in under 10 weeks (inc Christmas and new year).
Thank you for doing a great job Paul.
Will look forward to seeing you around, when I get a bike.
Recently Passed both my mod 1&2 with pit-stop and due to Paul's superb training I went in confident for both tests. From start to finish Paul was a great instructor. The bikes are well maintained, the prices competitive, and most importantly the training is fun and at your own pace making it so much easier to learn.
FUN FUN FUN
!I passed my Motorcycle test today! Big thank you to Paul! You have been the best instructor anyone could ask for. The first time I drove a Motorcycle was a Month ago today and I've passed already with lots of confidence. Paul really does put his time and effort in to get a great result for his students. Paul makes it easy and FUN to learn. He is a very nice guy that u can get along with really well, I see him as a Top instructor and a friend. I couldn't recommend Paul at Pit Stop Training enough! In a weird way I'm sad that the learning is over because of the fun I've had 😔 Good luck to everyone...even though you won't need it 👍
Direct Access Course
Friendly and relaxed yet highly professional tuition.
Having started with no motorcycle experience I have just gained my full licence. The course has enabled me not only to pass the module one and two tests but also to feel comfortable, confident and safe on a bike.
I very much recommend pit-stop training.
See you on the road,
Excellent value for money great trainning.
Recently completed my Full bike license with Paul and the team starting from the beginning with a very thorough CBT which put me in good stead for all the trainning ahead to pass my module 1&2.
Great instructors with a very easy going and patient manner providing excellent and professional training and with a great range of modern motor bikes it makes it easy and fun for all.
With flexible training times to suit and very competive prices I would highly recommend to anyone.
Would like to thank Paul for the personal taxi service from the ferry terminal which made travelling from the mainland hassle free.
I have recently completed my CBT and MOD 2 and would like to thank Paul for making it a pleasurable experience. From start to finish Paul was welcoming, patient and as a teacher myself I fully appreciate his excellent teaching skills. Having received a poor experience at one of the Islands other training centers I can say without doubt that Pitstop offer an excellent service. One of sons has a also trained with Pitstop and my youngest son who has just turned 16 will be training with him in the near future.Allowing my children to train with Pitstop is the biggest complement I can offer.
Dear Paul, Just to say thanks to you and especially Colin for helping me through my CBT. The day was really enjoyable and pitched at my level which was much appreciated. Colin was an excellent teacher: patient, clear with his communication and helped in building my confidence.
All in all I would say that I had fantastic training for the cost involved, could not have been bettered. I'll be recommending you all!
I am enjoying my Suzuki Van Van, have more than 50 miles under my belt already
and look forward to riding out on sunnier days. Kind regards - Julie Sajous

Mod 2 Test Pass
I joined Paul's training school to do my Module 2 test, wow what can I say: professional, fun, welcoming, good training style and most of all efficient!
Just a few words used there to describe the experience I've had with Paul, a genuinely nice chap and bikes are kept in tiptop condition.
Great value training and he'll get you through your test as promised!
Paul asked me many times while training if I was "happy." With my unrestricted bike licence and a lovely new big cruiser bike to ride... I'm ecstatic!!!! Thanks Paul! I'll be back for enhanced riding in a few months.
customer focused, from CBT to unrestricted license
My Wife and I did our CBTs with Paul at Pitstop Training.
Due to work and family commitments it has been 18 months since we did our CBT. However since then we have returned from time to time to cover our MOD 1s and our MOD 2s.
Thanks to the eternal cheerfulness of Paul and his superb team.
Our Daughter and Son in Law have also been to Pitstop for their CBTs.
A great job all round. We are exceedingly 'Happy'

Brilliant : No one expects to learn anything at their 3rd Mandatory CBT . After all you’ve already had 4 years riding around on your 125cc and figure you know it all. But this was my first time with Pit-Stop and after the day’s training my bike handling was 100 times better and I had learnt road safety techniques that made me feel more at ease on the road. Why had the other companies not taught me these skills? The Instructors at Pit-Stop – Paul, Collin and Steve – all learnt their craft in the Police Force which sets them above the rest. Having completed the Pit-Stop CBT I knew that I was now prepared to do the full test.
I contacted Paul and arranged additional training. I arrived on Friday, on Tuesday I passed Mod 1 and Wednesday my Mod 2. Both Modules held No surprises as Paul had covered every eventuality. After riding round the Isle of Wight on a CBF600 my beloved 125 Marauder had to go.
Why did I come all the way from Essex to train? What better place to hone your bike skills than on the Isle of Wight? Make a holiday out of it.
I will be back for advanced training.
Steve – Essex.
Couldn't recommend a better company than Pit-Stop Training!
Just completed my direct access and I really can speak highly enough of Paul and his training. Paul is a friendly and accommodating individual with excellent training methods. I passed with only a handful of lessons and thoroughly enjoyed the process from start to finish. Paul always puts the customer first and takes extra time to ensure you learn to a high standard and have fun.
Thank you so much Paul!
Going for my full licence aged 55yrs,Paul and his team knew from the get go that I'd been seriously ill and setting the pace of training accordingly, when I needed to rest he waited patiently until I was ready to continue and off we'd go again. No fuss, just nice and steady step by step expert tuition which got me from CBT to Mod 2 in a day under two months. I found training an enjoyable experience and can highly recommend 'Pitstop'.
Full test from cbt to mod 2
Thanks paul for great training and making it fun at the same time, loved every bit of it and I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about taking their test to do it with Paul as he puts you at ease and teaches you the right way . From start to finish it took about 6 weeks and I passed mod 1&mod 2 with no minors and passed both first time thanks to the training I had. Very good price and a decent bloke
Setting the bar high in their standards of both training and customer service!
Huge thanks to Paul and the team in supporting my training from CBT through to Module 2. Working around my travel plans to the Island, Paul could not have been more accommodating and supportive. Training was clear, patient and well paced, and always helped by Paul's upbeat and positive character. I felt safe on the road at all times, even on day 1, and could not have enjoyed the experience more.
I would thoroughly recommend Pit-Stop Training to anyone looking to get on a bike, either for the first time or to further develop your riding skills.
That's all folks - off to buy a bike!
After a disastrous experience with another instructor a few years earlier, it was refreshing to find Paul who went out of his way to help and make sure I was up to the test.... which I passed...hurrah!
He had a lot of patience and time for me to get things right without any pressure, I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to ride a bike, whether starting from scratch or returning to biking after a long time out.
I often see Paul out and about on the bikes with learners, I am genuinely pleased to see he is doing so well..... keep it up!
I hadn't riden a bike in 22 years and thanks to Paul at Pitstop motorcycle training I was passed in 9 days
A big thank you Paul
Great guy and the place to take your motorcycle tuition
I would like to thank Paul for getting me through the process right to my full test. Paul is very patient and if you are not learning one way he will change his style to suit you. I passed every section of my test's first time and Paul has a 100% pass record. Thanks Paul.
Intensive Direct Access
I had never ridden a geared bike before and on returning from Australia to see family on the island decided to learn to ride a bike. Paul went above and beyond assiting me in arranging the CBT, mod 1 and mod 2 and also working on the theory.
On the first day i learnt to manouvre a 125cc bike and was actually sitting on a 600cc bike by the end of the 2nd day. After a week i had passed the theory and then arranged to sit the mod 1 on the same day. I passed with 2 minors and the next day had mod 2 and passed. Couldn't believe it. Really enjoyed the practices that Paul taught me ,and the experience i would recommend any one who is thinking to ride to contact Paul. Always remember mirror-signal-lifesaver:)
CBT - Mod 1 - Mod 2
Thanks Paul for the super advice and top tips for getting me up to speed, all within a month too. Your ability to work around my hours and availability was much appreciated. All in all, this was made a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Good kit and easy approach. Highly recommended.
Rapidly approaching a cool 1/2 century and wandering what to do with some time off work. What else is a Girl to do but satisfy a teenage dream of learning to ride a motorcycle. I warned the guys that I was little, they were not phased. They were rather surprised when on their 'little' bike I could not touch the ground even with tippy toes!!! Still, they were not phased at my deceptive stature. Their tenacity at seeking a bike suitable for my size was outstanding and whole heartedly reassuring. Suitable bike eventually sourced; training executed in a very supportive manner; CBT achieved!! Looking forward to future ride outs to increase my confidence - promise to bring my own bike!!! Thanks Lads
Many thanks Paul! Would recommend to anyone regardless of current level or confidence. Lessons tailored to the individual and done in whatever time span you are comfortable with. Any person seeking motorcycle training should look no further than Pit Stop Training.
Many thanks to Paul, a great instructor and nice "bloke". Got me through my direct access test in 5 weeks from start to finish - me being a 63 year old non biker! Paul supplied all the gear, all I had to do was to turn up.
I recommend that anybody wishing to learn how to ride a bike safely should consider Pit-stop Training their first port of call.
Once again many thanks Paul.
Passed My DAS !!
A big thank you to Paul Spreadbury at pit stop training for all his help and being there when I needed as I have been trying to do my test for 12 years on the island and after phoning about to get the extra help as I am dyslexic and getting nowhere till now (I PASSED MY DIRECT ACCESS 10/02/2014) BIG THANK YOU AGAIN
Love to ride
I did my CBT, theory, module 1 and module 2 with Paul and am now riding a Ducati Monster 696. Paul's approach is calm, he has a laugh and will take the learning at a pace to suit you as an individual. Thank you - so glad I did it. Never stop learning but having fun doing so.
Having not been on a Motorbike for over 30 years, getting a full bike licence was an ambition I couldn't ignore. I started with Paul through a simple web enquiry offering a free 'Get On' experience - and got hooked. Paul has guided me through CBT, Theory Test, MOD 1 and now MOD 2 with patience and skill making the experience all the more enjoyable and safe. I am happy to endorse Paul's approach and method to any would-be biker, and would be very comfortable guiding my teenage sons towards Paul when their time comes...let's hope they don't wait as long as me!
I don't trust the life of my boy with many people mate. He's looking forward to his full motorbike training in December. Will give you a call soon.
Thank you for today and for having patience, picking me up when I fell off (twice!!), making sure I was enjoying myself while learning and having the sense of humour to laugh with me not at me. Rest assured I will be back to do my full license with you on my 400 when I have gained some more experience on the road. Thanks again and I will highly recommend you to any one else that wants to learn to ride. If I can learn to ride a bike at the age of 53 then I hope to encourage others to do the same!!
Had a great couple of scooter training sessions with Paul, feel fully confident now to unleash myself on the roads.
Training to test recommended
Thank you Paul for tuition and advice, I would recommend you to everyone!
