    Had my first lesson today with CR motorcycle training.

    Cody was a good bloke, very patient (despite me leaving on my indicator 80% of the turns) and got me from having ZERO experience, to cruising around the burbs within 20mins, and riding half decently by the end of two hours. Also lives in a great location (Greenwood) so the streets are quiet and theres carparks galore for practicing O turns.

    Also, was good to have a lesson in the rain, very handy e-brake training and a good confidence builder, as my next lesson will be the first time ive ridden in dry conditions.

    instructors sound really good now! when I got mine a few years ago my instructor kept getting me to stop and tell me the indicators are playing up on the bike!? I'd pull up and he'd say we have to head back and get them fixed then I'd flick them on and they'd work... then he'd go "really... well fucking use them!" haha made me piss myself laughing every time. Always hungover too and rode like a demon after I passed my test daring me to keep up with him, lane splitting through moving trafffic and everything, it was awesome!

    Yes it is another Grant from Grunts for me too!! After reading through this thread...I just have to say that I also used Grant for both my RE and R class... and I wouldn't use anyone else! Grant is patient, helpful, easy to understand and a top guy all round and definitely gets my vote. I never felt rushed or stupid when riding with Grant and under his instruction if anything I felt extremely confident. Thanks for leading by example Grant, as you were and are a perfect example of what one needs to be like when riding on the road. Ride safe with Grunts :0)

    John from Global motorcycle skillz

    Great instructor all round good guy helps your improve your riding skills not just prepare you for the test well worth the investment and well worth the time

    From been taught be a total tosser to going to such excellence is wonderful once he pushes you.

    and that feeling once you ride away from the licence department with no need to be shadowed is priceless


    So thanks to everyone that pointed him out and thanks to you johnny got the misses of my back haha
    Driving was cool, until riding became an option.

    Are there any female instructors around at the moment and can I have their contacts? The lady requiring lessons is close to the city.

    Bit further north than you are, but Johnny Green at Global Motorcycle Skills is good. Went my RE with him, going back for my Rs when I get round to it.
    Based in Kardinya, but will come to you if you've got your own bike.

    Wow, I am glad that I found this site, I have been holding on to my L's for my RE for way too long and I found all the reviews helpful to be able to choose the right person to go for a Motorcycle Lessons with, so many people have said "They would use Grunts ( Grant)", I am glad that I chose him from all the Reviews as he is funny and makes you feel like "YOU CAN DO ATTITUDE EVEN IF YOU DROP THE BIKE", I can't wait to get my own bike now.

    What do people think of Honda CBF 250?

    I might just post up about my experience. I went to Bob at ABK driving school, out in kewdale. I have to say, it was a shocker of a lesson.

    -When I booked the lesson, I told him that I only had a helmet and gloves. He said "that's fine, we'll put you in a learner's vest." That learner's vest was literally just a cloth/velcro vest. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding, maybe not. But I found it very uncomfortable to ride around in a long sleeve shirt only. The instructor himself was only wearing a flannelette shirt and jeans...
    -This was my first lesson/first time riding on the road ever. We literally had a two minute conversation about where we were going before setting off into peak hour traffic.
    -We rode continuously for an hour, the only time I got any feedback was when I directly asked for tips when we stopped at traffic lights!
    -No emergency stops, no theory, no maneuvering, no techniques, no carparks, none of that. Just throw some new kid on a scorpio and drive around in peak hour for a while and call it a lesson.
    -Instructor actually sped several times, plus approached roundabouts and blind turns at alarming rates speed that I wouldn't even do in a cage...

    What a waste of sixty bucks. I don't like to trash talk people, but that really was a bad experience. I'm lucky I didn't fall off and get smeared by a rav4. I've just finished a bout of HR lessons with an actual good instructor, and the difference between instructors is night and day. Having read through this thread, I'm going to book some lessons with global motorcycles

    If you're in Booragoon, Johnny Green at Global Motorcycle Skills is in Kardinya. Took me and a few others on here. $200 for a 2 hour minimum lesson. All gear (including a jacket) is included. Starts off with a free 1hr intro lesson to introduce you to the controls etc.

    I would like to thank Victor from BIKESAFE in Joondalup / Hillaries for getting me through my R-E today.
    He knows exactly what the Joondalup testers want to see, and can take you to the exact spots they take you on the tests.
    I had a practice run with him before the test today and the O-turns and E-stop for my test were in the exact spot we practiced.
    Lots of knowledge + good bikes + good communication = test passed.

    But the big question is, did he teach you how to ride and stay safe on the road or did he teach you to pass the assessment?
