“Thank you to all our students for continuing to allow us to grow. Without you we wouldn’t be who we are!”
”After having my learners permit for way too long and putting off
lessons due to a previous bad experience with an instructor who
obviously did not care about my progress, I finally bit the bullet and
did some research which led me to Gail.
Gail has been absolutely amazing since day one, I definitely presented
her a challenge – being barely 150cm tall (4′ 9”)I really struggled to get my
balance on the bike and it affected my confidence. However, Gail has
been super patient and resourceful and I managed to get my licence on
the first go – and within my goal as well (4 days before my permit is
due to expire!).
Thank you so much Gail for all the time and effort you have put in to
teaching me how to ride safely and confidently on the road – 2020 isn’t
so bad after all!
THANK YOU SO MUCH GAIL!! ”
“Had a blast going out every weekend and learning something new, all the way to the very end. Gail always knew when to move onto the next step and never lets your confidence slide. All in all, passed my licence first time after hopping onto a bike for the first time. Highly recommended.”
“Gail was a great instructor and gives you great knowledge about riding on the road. Teaching you everything from A-Z in great detail, making you a confident safe rider.
Would definitely recommend if you are looking at getting your bike licence”. Pass 1st time!
“With the recent tightening of the R class licence test, you need to be very aware of everything around you and your road positioning to pass the R class test. Gail is a very good and patient instructor. She will break your riding down and build you back up so that you are a safe and competent rider into the future .”
“So thankful I had Gail as my instructor. In all the lessons I had with her she was patient, kind and encouraging. I have learnt such valuable techniques from Gail. They ensure I am able to stay as safe as possible on the roads and this knowledge allows me to enjoy my riding experience to the fullest extent possible.
For anybody who wishes to learn how to ride a motorbike in the right way I would whole heartedly recommend Gail.
She is the absolute best!”
“I passed my R-E test 8 years ago. Within a year I had upgraded to a Ninja ZX-6R and went back on to L plates, but unfortunately made a classic new rider mistake at a roundabout when I thought I was going to be hit by
a car. After I recovered from my injuries I decided to buy a LAMS bike and get my confidence back.
At the start of this year I finally decided it was time to get my R class licence. I did some research on various riding schools and based on the testimonials on the ‘Licence 2 Ride’ website I thought Gail might be a good fit for me.
That was an under-statement. Gail is an amazing teacher – always patient, encouraging and very thorough. I passed my R class licence first time with minimal mark-downs, but more importantly I was given valuable lessons in road safety and rider attitude that will see me through for the rest of my riding days.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gail to anyone wanting to get their licence.”
“Never haven ridden a motorbike before and to satisfy a mid-life crisis I decided to get my RE motorcycle licence. I undertook lessons with Gail, from ‘Licence 2 Ride’. How lucky was I to have had Gail as my teacher, I enjoyed all our rides together and the progression of my confidence riding on public roads.
Gail ensured my skills developed at a pace that suited me and cumulated in me passing my test first time. As motorcycle handling issues arouse for me, Gail eliminated them one by one inluding a mid-training bad case of “clutchitis” (failure to release the clutch at the appropriate time and speed).
A big thank you to Gail at ‘Licence 2 Ride’
as I now have my RE licence and a motorbike of my own.
“How lucky am I to have found an instructor like Gail?
With no other riding experience, Gail’s awesome teaching helped me pass 1st time.
I love how patient and reassuring she is, she encourages you to do everything in your own time and man does she make riding lessons fun. She made me feel more like I was out riding with a mate!
Highly recommend #1
Thanks for everything Gail
You should be proud of the awesome job you do. No one could wipe the smile of my face if they tried.”
” Licence 2 Ride was a good choice, Gail was very professional, reliable and patient. Gail made it very easy by booking my test for me . Would highly recommend! “
“I had a great experience learning to ride with Licence 2 Ride. Gail was a great instructor , always encouraging with calm “voice in my head-set!”, also very convenient, as Gail is available weekend and public holiday.
Thanks to Gail I went from never riding a motorbike to passing my PDA first go!
“My husband bought a motorcycle and I thought, why should he have all the fun? The only problem was that I was terrified of riding. I found ‘Licence 2 Ride’ on the internet and little did I realise that I had found the perfect teacher—Gail is the Jedi Master of her craft. Even though I was anxious and had frequent brain snaps, Gail was unfailingly patient and encouraging. She covered all aspects of riding and road rules, making it fun but keeping it seriously safe, and she prepared me for my test with attention to every detail.
My husband was so impressed he asked Gail for a refresher lesson in counter-steering and emergency braking.
I found ‘Licence 2 Ride’ to be superb value for money and a great investment in riding safely and confidently. Despite my nerves and a sleepless night, I got my licence first time! “
“I’ve had the best start to my 2020 with achieving my RE licence. None of this would have be possible without the assistance of Gail, it was her patients, guidance and knowledge that helped me achieve my goal. I can not recommend a better teacher. I am so grateful. “
“Gail has been an amazing instructor and worked with me to get around my tight schedule to create efficient lessons which helped me to pass first time!! Her immense knowledge of test routes and what the assessors pick out made my journey easy and enjoyable.”
”Being my first time on a road bike, Gail at ‘Licence 2 Ride’ was able to teach and improve on my skills with a motorbike in a fun, easy and safe way. Gail has been able to answer any questions or enquiries I have had along the journey of learning to ride. It has been a great experience learning to ride along side Gail and have enjoyed every lesson I’ve had.”
Expertise comes from experience…….
There is no doubt, Gail is an expert teacher, I am happy to confirm that. With my earlier experience in SRI Lanka, Japan and now Australia, surprised and excited I’ve finally got my RE Motorcycle LICENCE!! HOW……..as a new comer with a strong language barrier she had very good understanding, patience, attention, focus, confidence, techniques for
safety, progress tracking and always willing to emphasise a point. For example, drawing pictures to illustrate, and sending personalised notes after each lesson. That’s why Gail is the EXPERT and I highly recommend ‘Licence 2 Ride’ to anyone!!!!.
“Gail has been an awesome instructor from start to finish. She was very patient with me and has a great sense of humour, which made every lesson a pleasure. Each lesson was tailored to me in advance, which made it very easy to
progress my riding skills, which was well needed as I’d never been on a bike before.
I can’t recommend her enough and I look forward to getting some more lessons with Gail before going for my R class license.”
”Gail at ‘Licence to Ride’ was fantastic.
Right from the start everything was explained simply and in great detail. The bike was maintained exceptionally well. The work that Gail puts into the training plan is fantastic you can turn up on test day with confidence you will pass. I highly recommend Licence 2 Ride”.
“Gail was everything you expect from an instructor, but more. Working away
on a 4 week on, 1 week off roster made my journey quite different. I would
only see her once or twice every 5 weeks. Even with this every lesson was
planned, previous lessons were noted and every lesson would be an
improvement on the last. Setting me up perfectly to pass the PDA 1st time.
Could not recommend her more!”
“Having ridden motorbikes before but never on the road. Gail catered
lessons to my skill level with a friendly demeanor aimed at improving
riding techniques, and avoiding bad habits. Not only to pass the PDA on my
first attempt but also remaining safe on the road after that. I would
highly recommend to everyone at any skill level.”
”Just wanted to say thanks again. Teaching every aspect of road safety, and being easy going helped me get my licence first go. Glad I choose ‘Licence 2 Ride’. Highly Recommended!”
“I started out as a very anxious and nervous rider, but Gail’s extensive
knowledge and calm demeanour gave me the confidence and skills I needed to
pass my test! She’s very well organised and started every lesson with a
recap of the last, before letting me know what we would be working on that
day. I can’t recommend ‘Licence 2 Ride’ highly enough!”
“Still smiling after passing my R-E at first attempt and I can’t recommend
Gail enough. She is calm and professional. Gail keeps meticulous track of your progress with each lesson
building on the previous, which I found maximised my use of time with an
instructor. The Honda CB’s are well maintained and easy to ride –
but now looking forward to riding my 1975 RD250.”
“I had the most excellent day today with the help of Gail at ‘Licence 2
Ride’, she helped me pass the riding test 1st time, I can’t say enough about her great
attitude, patience, guidance and helping me achieve my goal! Big
thanks again Gail, see you on the road and stay safe.”
“Learning to ride a motorcycle has been a long held dream of mine and Gail
in all her brilliance helped me go from complete bike riding novice, too
passing my PDA first time.
Gail’s teaching style is the perfect mix of passion for riding and rider
safety, patience and professionalism. she made me feel comfortable both on
and off the bike.
I highly recommend Gail if you are thinking about getting into riding she
is absolutely amazing.”
“A massive shout out to Gail at ‘Licence 2 Ride’ for working her magic and getting me through my licence first go! Gail’s attention to detail and focus on safety was a real stand out for me after years of developing bad habits driving and riding on dirt… Having very little experience on the road or road bikes Gail was quickly able to put me at ease and instil confidence and change my riding technique to suit the tarmac. Was super impressed by Gail’s professionalism right from the get go with the initial consultation right through to the testing day – she’s with you every step of the way going above and beyond!Can highly recommend the services of ‘Licence 2 Ride’ for anyone considering their two wheel future! Thanks again Gail – you’re a super star!”
“Licence 2 Ride taught me from the start the basic key things to learn like
a true safe rider, from the first day to the last day I never felt unsafe
or put in an uncomfortable position, Gail really taught me so many skills
that I won’t ever forget and now I know I can ride everywhere with
absolute confidence. Thanks Gail.”
“Licence to Ride is an excellent company, I had never ridden a motorbike
and Gail got me through my test on my first time! I initially picked the
company because of its location, but after meeting Gail I felt completely
at ease. I have recommended ‘Licence 2 Ride’ to a number of people and my
wife is planning on using them for her lessons!
“Licence 2 Ride allowed me to realise a long term dream I thought I may have left too late. After trying a few riding schools I settled on Licence 2 Ride for their attitude to safety and flexibility in lesson times. Gail’s absolute focus on safety and attention to detail gave me the confidence I needed to learn to ride competently and to pass my assessment first time. If you are looking for safety, respect and flexibility I can confirm that Licence 2 Ride have it all.”
“Just got back from Tassie! It was awesome. Everyone said what a good rider I was. Thanks teach!”
“Gail was awesome! She gave me the confidence to go from hardly any experience on the bike to passing my test first shot. She’s very big on safety and has a nice calming voice which really helped when we were out on the road. I’d definatly recommend Licence 2 Ride to any rider no matter what your skill level.”
“Gail’s lessons are very good, always calm when talking to you, never pushed me too hard. Gail has helped me into a much safer rider. When it came to test time I felt confident and ready to pass and did so on the first go! I will be recommending Gail to anyone who wants to learn to ride.”
“I’ve really enjoyed the lessons leading up to test day and it’s almost a shame I passed first go! I’ll definitely be back when it’s time to get my unrestricted license. Gail is very professional and without a doubt has helped me become a safer rider. Thank you! 😉 “
“Got my RE licence with Gail, I am a very nervous person and with Gail’s help and constant support I passed my test. She is extremely patient and very highly recommended. Thanks Gail.”
“Licence 2 Ride provided me with top class training which helped me get my motorcycle licence. Gail is an excellent instructor and very professional, the right balance between emphasising the seriousness of riding a motorcycle as well as the enjoyment.”
“Today I passed my licence test and it’s all thanks to the support from Gail at Licence 2 Ride. When I first started doing lessons my confidence was low and I was questioning myself on the road constantly. I found Gail to
be an amazing instructor, she has helped my confidence grow with clear instructions and great guidance.”
“I would recommend Gail @ licence 2 Ride anytime for any type of student looking to ride or upgrade their skills. The equipment was always ready to go, lessons were practical, and advice was second to none. Gail ensured I was ready and coached me through to my test, where I managed to pass first time. It was a really great experience and I was so elated to have passed and get out on my own wheels. I was originally highly anxious about the test and Gail put me at ease, even down to the final seconds before my test! We did everything in my own time when I was comfortable, so I was relaxed and confident when the time came to complete the test and get out on the road.”
“As the mother of 16 year old boy getting his first moped licence, it was obviously a very nervous time for me. After meeting you, it set my mind at ease knowing that he was in your hands, especially with your focus on ‘safe’ riding – you mentioned that ‘safety focus’ in every after lesson debrief.
Scott responded well to the way you taught him, taking in all the lessons and advice that you gave him. I feel confident that he now has the skills to be a careful and safe rider for both himself and other users of the road. He is looking forward to taking future lessons with you to obtain his 250 motorcycle licence. Thank you
“I approached Gail the Owner Operator of Licence 2 Ride, to assist me gaining the much-coveted R-E class, allowing me to do what I thoroughly enjoy by riding motorcycles. Gail and myself hit it off, making great steps gaining the confidence to ride safely and allowing me to patiently learn the skills to ride on two wheels. I enjoyed my experience with Licence 2 Ride because the quality of lessons, providing the necessary knowledge and feedback to not only pass the riding test, but also but to help me ride safely in for years to come. I happily recommend Licence 2 Ride to any novice, or experienced rider who is looking to take that next step in their riding experience.”
“I can’t thank Gail enough for her patience and amazing teaching skills. Gail made me feel comfortable and secure on the bike unlike previous instructors I have had. It was always fun and will be forever thankful. I would highly, highly recommend Licence2Ride for anyone who is just starting off or needing to polish up their riding skills. I will miss it!”
