"PMT class was an amazing experience, much better curriculum and instructors than I’ve found through any of the other many classes I’ve taken. Registration was simple. Instructors delivered materials efficiently and in pretty simple terms. Thanks, guys! I’ll come back to you guys for sure when I decide on to move to intermediate and advanced classes. Highly recommend"

"5 stars for the program! I ve learned a lot just by attending this short 2 day course. Both Chris and Isaac are great instructors. They bring lots of real life experience and humor when they teach. They make the classes fun both inside the class room and on the range. Highly recommend them!!"

"This is class covers basic information, but that is often the most important! While a lot of it should be common sense, I'm not sure people drive with it around here, so it's a great way to learn to ride in a safely in a friendly environment. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn to ride motorcycles and be safe doing it. I also recommend it to anyone who wants a license in the Bay Area and doesn't want to wait 4 months to take the permit test and then another 6 months to get you M1. This class allows you to get your M1 if you are over 21+ years old with one walk in visit to hell, sorry the DMV. The staff are friendly, sassy, and helpful and take the class seriously. NOTE: BE ON TIME TO ALL SESSIONS, there is a zero tardiness policy, they have to do it this way to qualify as a replacement to the DMV riding test, SO RESPECT IT! Otherwise it's a great weekend in a parking lot on small bikes learning to ride safely by practicing evasive maneuvers through cones and fast stops to be ready in the real world."

"Went in there knowing nothing about riding and left knowing how to safely and properly ride a motorcycle. Tex ,Tony, and Evie are very professional and patient when it comes to teaching. I learned a lot from them and also from the gentleman teaching the class which I believe his name is Rob. Highly recommend this place."
― Antonio Mendoza
"Amazing ! I got more than what I expected. Full of fun and excellent training. The best in Bay area. Chris and Issac are excellent."

"It was a great experience and got an opportunity to learn a lot. The more you grapple with the material taught the better off you will be. I also recommend the morning classes during the hot months."
