"I was extremely nervous since I was a complete beginner but throughout the lessons my instructors helped me become more comfortable. I'm more knowledgeable and confident on a motorcycle thanks to my instructors."

"Had great teachers. Christ and Isaac. Have great tips and teachings to help me do things correctly and fix my mistakes. I got great skills and confidence and will definitely take the intermediate class at a later time."

"I did the basic motorcycle course in Salinas. All the coaches knew their stuff, kept the class on track, and finished on time. I feel 500% more comfortable on a bike after taking the class. Special shout-out to Tex Long, who was exceptional!"
― Bill Fleming
"I took the beginner course. It was a fun, informative experience! I loved my instructors, Tex, Tony, and ?Jeff?. They were all very enthusiastic and really helped me learn how to ride in a safe way. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in riding motorcycles."

"I took the most basic course Pacific Motorcycle Training offers (for simply getting your license). The instructors are very knowledgeable at teaching motorcycle riding, and made the whole experience stress-free, clear to understand, and fulfilling. It is worth the money, and I plan on coming back for more advanced classes after I get more advanced at riding."
― Santi Piva
"I had not ridden a motorcycle in 25 years. The course helped me regain the feel of riding and increased my confidence. The instructors were great and very patient with those in the class that had never been on a motorcycle. The techniques taught were very useful for how to corner and brake. Totally worth the money!"
― Marty Heaney
"As a beginner rider with about 6 months of novice experience under my belt, I anticipated not learning a whole lot. I couldn't have been more wrong. The class was absolutely invaluable and anyone who intends to ride motorcycles on or off the street should take at least the introductory/beginner class. Great experience!"
