"The Beginner course is great! A lot of good safety and basic motorcycle operating procedures covered in the theory classes. PMT provides bikes for people who don't own one yet to practice with. The instructors on the course are very helpful and provide continuous feedback to correct riding posture and other nuances. I would definitely recommend taking this course for people who aren't comfortable or used to riding a motorcycle."
― Sachin Londhe
"Very good class! Information you get will save your life! Good teachers & they know there bikes. They will show you how to ride your bikes safely and correctly. You can't put a price on your life! Take the class. I have been riding dirt bikes for years and this class was very helpful having never ridden a street bike. Loved it!"
― Adam Williams
"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."
― Jose Galvez Hernandez
"The instructors are very insightful, nice, and patient. I'm glad I took this course. I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn how to ride a motorcycle. If I decide to pursue any advance motorcycling courses, they will likely be my first consideration."
― Charles May
"Great Place to Start Your Motorcycle Journey. The instructors create a positive learning atmosphere and help you improve your bike handling techniques. I'll be taking their intermediate/ advanced classes later. Chris, Isaak and Ken were great teachers."
― Ross Sherwood
"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
"Had a truly informative experience. All of the teachers are patient and more importantly, extremely knowledgeable. They want you to succeed and create an environment for you to ask as many questions as needed. I highly recommend taking basic courses here."
