"First and foremost the training is exceptional, it prepares you mentally, emotionally, and physically about the thrill and threats of a successful motorcycle riding experience. The instructors were spot on with their classroom and range feedback. I honestly think the class should have an extra day of riding to get the last bit of jitters out of the newly minted rider. As for the cost, it’s worth every penny and then some."
― Jeff Stibling
"I had such a great time at class with Ken and Kyle. I’ve been riding for awhile but they still taught me some new things. Thank you Pacific Motorcycle Training. I will be back for more training."
― Camille Scerri
"Excellent instructors. They answer any and every question very well. I particularly like them illustrating points with personal anecdotes - you remember stuff well. Good initiation into motorcycling. Good motorcycles to learn on. Helmets provided. A bit hectic."
― Arun Chandrashekharapuram
"This was an incredible class. My only experience on a motorcycle was a Honda Trail 90 when I was a kid. I learned so much and now I only need to pass the written test at DMV to get the motorcycle endorsement on my license. This course is worth every penny!"
― Glenn Abersold
"Absolutely fantastic training for the newbie!! I was riding a motorcycle by the end of the day- it was fabulous! The teachers, both in the classroom and on the range, are all very experienced (10+years) riders. They stayed calm even when I didn't. The classroom instruction is thorough but not excessive; I would have loved a few more hours on the range since I was SO new. I will definitely be taking more classes with them!"
― Kristi Swensson Burdsall
"The training/certification course is both rigorous and fun. The instructors are all knowledgeable riders and teachers. I had a very positive experience with Pacific Motorcycle Training and I recommend the company and the course without reservation."
― Don Benjamin
"A superbly fun experience. Whether you're experienced or a beginner, this is the place for you. The process is very well structured. The trainers are very lively and the course if tackled in a fun manner to help understand."
