"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!"

"This is the only place you need to go! The staff here is what its all about!"
― Matt Yockey
"Ken and Kyle are really great teachers! They are patient, knowledgeable and sure speak SLOW so that we can hear the instructions clear. I had more fun than I expected. SSF is quite cooler than South Bay though."
― Yuxiao Wu
"Recommend to anyone trying to get into riding. Instructors teach you skills that might just save your life, and the course is very informative. Great experience overall."

― Art Garcia
"Pacific Motorcycle Training will provide the basic tools needed, preparing new riders to get out there and mix it up safely with the four-wheeled masses. The numerous instructors are very knowledgeable and give an appropriate dose of confidence to new riders, while offering valuable reminders and safety tips to the more seasoned rider. They also offer more advanced riding classes. Totally worth the time, money, and your life"
― Eric Stauss
"Such incredible instructors. Learned an insane amount in just three days. Recommend 1000 times over. If you want to ride, do yourself a favour and take the course."
