I just posted this link to Aberdeen Bike School, run by Simon Harding, because a lad at my work was after a recommendation and I could not find Simons details at hand.

Simons the boy!!

Used him for my CBT 2 years ago, and then my full license last year - top bloke, dosent overcharge and sometimes gives free lessons if hes instructing someone (you follow) but he still watches you aswell.

He told me, ach just pay me that im not here to steel young blokes money - so ended up paying less, and passed my test first time in 5 days! had never riden a geared bike on the road :)

good thing about simon is, he dosent take poo, and he tells you what he thinks - its what you need!!! :biggrin2

Simon booked me in for a lesson then hire of bike as I couldn't get a test date nearer my home (Forfar). Very good instructor, brilliant communications over the intercom. He put me at ease straight away and that took some doing as I was very nervous about my mod 2.
The guy is enthusiastic about his work and this comes accross. Great explanations on what line to take and braking etc. Highly recommended. Reasonable prices. Top geezer.

Agree with everyone here. I did my direct access with Simon a couple of months ago. Top bloke, doesn't rip you off. Gave me a lift up to the test centre in Peterhead as there was a long wait for the tests in Aberdeen. Kept me at ease, as I was quite nervous about the mod 1. Passed both parts 1st time.

Came highly recommended from a few mates and would recommend him to everyone too.

I did all my biking lessons with Simon, from CBT to the Module 2 which I passed on Friday :) He's very good and quite accommodating if you need to fit round your G-spot.

Never met the guy..sounds good. The only thing negative I know of is my mate from work had a problem with her scooter before the weekend and therefor missed her test. If she had gone with someone else that had a stock of bikes then she could've borrowed one for the day (she did try to hire from Ecosse, Shirlaws etc but they only had 100cc or none at all).

Simon is a great bloke, did CBT with him, and away to do direct access. sis did her test with him and most the folk we know... and he don't rip you off, and tells you as he sees it, and like others said, its always what you need. fairest prices around and a good all round lad. probably best there is in aberdeen. :2up :biggrin2

I have just passed my mod 2 with Simon and overall he is very good at what he does :2up what I like about Simon is he is down to earth, tells you how it is, and quickly finds out your weaknesses and works on them, you will not go wrong with Simon, and even better news he will not rip you off, and is well fair with his prices, I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon.

I would heavily agree with this I took my cbt/mod 1+2 with Simon. As jamesy121 says he is very fair and down too earth. Will help you through all aspects of your test at your pace plus giving you lots of good riding advise for after you passing. I got through mine with only 2 lessons really brung my confidence up after trying on and off for a good few years due to circumstances at the time with my finances over the past 6-7 years. Really is a top bloke :2up
