Testimonials

A SMALL SELECTION OF OUR TESTIMONIALS

My sincere thanks for the no pressure environment I cant overemphasise how much easier it is to learn and practice skills.
Steve – Nov 2017

Had a fantastic day (Off Road) can’t praise the days structure and confidence building course enough thanks for a great day.
Phil – Sept 2017

Thanks for your time again yesterday and for the constructive feedback as always. It was great riding with you again & I need to ensure I do this more regularly.
David – Sept 2017

Had such a great day with Mick (Off Road). Thank you for setting up a really good course. It is a great experience for any motorcyclist to learn a whole new set of skills.
Murray – Sept 2017

Just wanted to say, I had a fantastic day out with Nick, he was approachable & down to earth & a credit to Total Advanced Training.
Jacques – August 2017

Thank you for a brilliant time yesterday (Off Road) I really enjoyed it all.
I will definitely recommend it to the other riders. it is so much fun and it can benefit their on road riding
Alan – August 2017

What can I say beyond what I’m sure you’ve heard many many others say before – the total advanced training day I did with NiCk on Saturday was fantastic! I learnt so much whilst thoroughly enjoying myself. What a brilliant instructor/coach nick is as well as a thoroughly nice bloke. His running commentary through the headsets was nothing less than astonishing – how he can keep that focus up for so long I’ll never know. His manner and way of delivering feedback was very clear and specific and so easy to assimilate into my riding. He was very approachable and willing to respond to questions or requests for focus on a particular aspect of riding (for me initially it was positioning through urban areas that I needed clarity on). Whilst being highly constructive on his feedback, he was nevertheless very encouraging, supportive and positive. Far from being an anxiety provoking experience being watched by a pro, nicks presence in front or behind me on the road was very reassuring and confidence inspiring.
Adam – June 2017

Hi Mick. Gary and I would like to say a huge thank you to you for allowing us to be the first to experience your (off road) course. We did not realise that you could have so much fun going so slow! It was an absolute blast and we gained some bike control skills into the bargain. We will definitely be back for more and I would seriously recommend it as an alternative fun biking day out!
Roy – June 2017

Thank you Mick. Really appreciate you taking the time to help me with my riding. Your feedback is very helpful to me. I am sure I will be contacting you again in the future for further assessments as it’s always good for me to learn how to improve my riding.
Tracey – June 2017

I found the session today extremely useful, more so than Bikesafe due to feedback and extended time on the road. Having the earpiece allowed me to hear as well as see first hand what you were talking about. When you were spotting hazards you were looking at type of car, who was driving, where entrances may appear etc. Although Bikesafe covered some great points Im more of a visual learner so this session was brilliant to reinforce what was taught via road craft. I had also picked up a few things wrong so once corrected was able to ride much safer. I also liked some of the bike handling techniques you showed like more use of the rear brake and the counter steering technique for cornering easier.
Ian – June 2017

Just a quick note to thanks for all the feed back and for making the day so very enjoyable and informative, I found it all fantastic, a day to remember.
Trevor – May 2017

Nick brown gave us a great ride through the city .
Constant positive critique with informed guidance on how to gain safe progress and position in challenging riding situations .
Can’t recommend enough these rides to up-skill any rider
Phil – April 2017

Can I say that your commentary and explanations were very clear and informative. I think they were a key factor in bringing about the marked improvement in my riding.
Andy – April 2017

Nick is great – he puts you at ease straight away, and his skills are obvious. His feedback is spot on.  All-in, a really enjoyable day riding my bike with two guys, both of whom I learned something from.
Neil – April 2017

Thanks Mick we really enjoyed our training day. The route was a good mix of roads and the stops well timed. We felt completely at ease and the whole day was well planned for us. The rider to rider radio commentary was a real help, immediate assessment what could be better than that! Your written and verbal feedback on our individual rides is just what we wanted to get out of the day. It just goes to show you never stop learning.
Jacqui & Phil – March 2017

I can’t thank Mick enough for my first taste of advanced training which was a real eye opener. I came away with increased confidence and a foundation to build on which will make riding safer and more fun. Mick’s tuition centred on improving how a rider identifies and controls potential hazards. Things that most riders are already doing to some degree but taken to a much higher level and applied in a comprehensive and systematic way. Mick’s wealth of knowledge and experience was also communicated in a friendly, collaborative way by someone who clearly still loves riding and wants to share his skills.
Fred – Dec 2016

I highly recommend it to everyone no matter they’re previous experience in motorcycling. It’s invaluable experience and life saving information to be taken away, really opening my eyes to the vast amounts of information we can take from the road ahead and around us in general. Personally, from the day with yourself I found it awesome, in the sense that so much is not taught when learning to ride a motorcycle with the DVLA or such basic information is given, that when you learn about different types of riding and road positioning it makes a big difference as to how safe you are or have been. Becoming aware purely from lack of experience and information from the past, I learnt a huge amount, of what I should be looking for on the road, where and when I should be looking to change position and be willing to move over or to hold my position; in all given scenario’s having an escape route should the need arise. One of the biggest aspects I previously overlooked was profiling road users, both pedestrian and drivers. I look forward to practising and honing my skills, and learning furthermore as I go on.
Jas – Nov 2016

Recently spent a day training with Total Advanced Training. Utterly professional throughout from the good communications during the booking process, clear joining instructions, good venue, clear briefing and, most importantly, a no-pressure learning environment. I can honestly say that I learned more from his commentated demo-ride than any other training session I’ve ever participated in. This was followed by putting the demonstration into practice with good clear guidance throughout. If you’re looking for top-notch training with a positive attitude look no further.
Steve – Nov 2016

What a great day. Mick was fantastic with show me tell me. I got some fantastic tips on road positioning and why we should think of our safety first i.e what’s the biggest danger and put yourself in the best position to avoid.
Richard – Nov 2016

I had a fantastic couple of days with the bikesafe and advanced riding day, and genuinely feel my riding improved more in that time than it has in the few years previous. And it’s given me a renewed vigour to get out and ride more as well.
Mike – Nov 2016

Thanks again for the day, out of all the various courses and days’ training I’ve done I felt it to be the most productive yet. I’d not hesitate to come back for further training when I feel I’m ready to prepare for my RoSPA gold. Until then I’ll be practising what we went through on the day.
Owain – Nov 2016

I found my time with Nick to be hugely informative. He pointed out what I had picked up from Bikesafe in terms of lane positioning and was quick to compliment.I made a number of minor mistakes during the various rides and these were met with advice in how to correct going forward. At the end of the day I felt as if my riding had improved further, both in terms of safety and being “smooth”. Overall I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to improve their riding.
Josh – Oct 2016

What an excellent day’ As you know I have tried to maintain a good standard of riding over the last 25 years or so and in order to do this I have taken the help of a number of various training opportunities and I can say without hesitation the time spent with you was woth 10 times what it cost.
Peter – Oct 2016

I spent a day with Mick Jones of Total Advanced around the roads of Essex for a hugely valuable day, he had paired me up with a trainee who had similar ability which worked very well – each of us learning from observing each other. It was my first experience of using radio contact and I was pleasantly surprised at the value of having a running commentary from Mick on the ride whilst I was (a) following him, (b) following the other rider and (c) being followed. And of course it meant any directions and change of riding position became seamless and saved time. Mick organised the day with two stops at BMW Braintree (a bonus in my book), where we had some theory input, ate and got to find out more about each other. We had another drink break and a final feedback stop, but mostly we spent the bulk of the time riding and the radio contact that Mick was highly proficient at using (one way), aided learning in the moment and therefore we covered a great deal in our time. We ended the day with a short Rospa standard test ride, without radio link which was great to measure where my riding standard was after all the input. For me it has been one of the best motorcycle training days, and I have done a fair amount. I would highly recommend Total Advanced and particularly if like me, you love riding are open to learning and feedback and always want to raise your standard.
Sara – Sept 2016

Could you also please extend my thanks to Nick for making the day both incredibly informative and hugely enjoyable. He managed to strike the perfect balance between instruction and fun; while keeping it safe throughout. It was a really useful day and I’d strongly recommend it to everyone.
Eric – Sept 2016

The training on Saturday really enhanced what I had been taught on the FireBike day.
The commentary from Nick as he rode was a real eye-opener. It makes a world of difference as you can replay his thought process in your ride to make you aware of hazards you would not normally have identified. Also, the feedback when I rode in front help put these skills into practice. You could feel the improvements to your riding as the day went.As an instructor Nick was superb and used every opportunity to provide feedback and insight. We used a variety of roads which meant we were shown how different environments should alter driving style and perception. Nick didn’t miss a beat even when we came across unexpected road closures and used every minute to teach us something. I would recommend this course to anybody and honestly wish I had done this years ago. I’m not going to win any friends by saying this but how many lives would it save if it is was mandatory after passing your test?
Roger – Sept 2016

Mick’s training day highlighted issues that I didn’t even realised that existed in the first place. Correct positioning and how to read the road ahead are 2 of the vital things that I believe will make me a safer rider. Seeing a motorcycle accident on our route that day just highlighted the importance of more training
Paul – Sept 2016

We had a fantastic day out with Total Advanced today. Nick’s Bluetooth comms were crystal clear and had comfortable earpieces, Nick gave an excellent demo ride with commentary, and this, along with the feedback, meant that everything clicked for Nikki. I’ve never seen such a huge improvement over one day. Highly recommended.
Chris & Nikki – Sept 2016

A superb day’s training with Mick – great to see and hear a truly Advanced Rider show the way – his observation and forward planning is remarkable to observe. I picked up a lot from the experience and will be back for more.
Andy – Sept 2016

I am writing to thank you for highlighting areas I had not recognised in my riding, which had the potential to put me into un-savoury situations. I found the day both informative and of great practical benefit, especially the demonstrations by radio that you undertook, clearly outlining real time developing situations whilst out on the road. Your open approach to my questions and willingness to be patient in ensuring I and the other fellow on the course understood everything you had picked up, I found truly helpful and I shall look to continuously improve in developing my proactive hazard management skills. I cannot thank you enough in your efforts and I hope to take the opportunity in the future for further days out with Total Advanced training, so that I may continue to be safe and develop new ways to improve the safety of those bikers I tutor in Essex.
From my perspective, I feel that your partaking in working with the Essex local authorities is an absolute life saver for the bikers of Essex.
Jaques – August 2016

Thanks for a great day I really enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. I agree totally with your assessment, on the day I felt I had let myself down with the poor quality of my overtaking but I now realise that I have learned from it and you have given me the tools and knowledge to improve and stay safe so thank you once again.
Rob – August 2016

I really enjoyed the day and learnt a great deal.Nick Brown was also an excellent instructor.
Neil – August 2016

Most excellent day Nick Brown was awesome.
Reece – July 2016

Thanks Mick, for another great days training. As per usual great roads and variety of different riding scenarios through out the day.
Neil – June 2016

Three days of riding the highlands of Scotland , I can only thank Mick or some amazing advanced driving instruction over the last couple of years…. It’s only as you fly past other bikers you realise the skills taught can never be learnt from normal riding, thanks Mick ….. I never missed one corner !!!
Simon – June 2016

It was a very enjoyable day and your advice and feedback was spot on as usual.
Mark – May 2016

I really enjoyed yesterday and Nick was an excellent rider and trainer. Having completed both yesterday and Bike Safe I would have no problems in recommending other riders to try both – I think everyone can always improve their riding no matter what their level and I certainly learned a great deal.
Paul – May 2016

Thanks for such prompt feedback and pictures.I had a great day with you and learnt a lot.Thanks again for such a good day.
Robert – April 2016

Fantastic day out riding with Mick fine tuning our advanced riding skills and always learning more under his instruction
Steve – April 2016

Thanks for a great day’s riding, and for access to your knowledge and skills. I think today was my fourth session with you and that annual refresher at the beginning of the season is so useful.
John – April 2016

Had a great day ‘back to biking’. Gave me plenty to work on. thanks again.
Brian – March 2016

Thank you very much for the day, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I feel the course has helped greatly particularly with the gearing and positioning, which was a revelation. Be back in the summer.
Gareth – Jan 2016

I have been riding for a number of years and being a member of ROSPA felt that my skills was fair on  my bike. Learnt so much on the day and Total Advanced delivery of the training was second to none in my opinion.
Neil – Dec 2015

Thanks Mick, I learnt a massive amount today. Really good session and thoroughly recommended.
Jon – Nov 2015

Sincere thanks for a great , informative and instructional day, I have picked up on many items to work on and now have a far greater understanding of where and why advice has been given on areas for improvement.
The most professional training of any kind I have ever had and in a manner that builds confidence without “knocking” one current level of riding standard………………..exceptional.
Bob – Nov 2015

Following 30+ years of riding motorbikes, commuting, touring, track days and a bit of off road I’ve adopted some bad habits.
Mick is very professional and diligent in showing you your errors in a way that makes complete sense.
I can’t speak highly enough of Mick’s tuition, regardless of your level of riding everyone will benefit from a days riding with Total Advanced Training.
Thanks again from me and no doubt the wife who will be most pleased with my new riding style.
Jasen – Oct 2015

It was a great and very helpful experience for me and helped me improve my riding. Learning new things made me feel more safe on the road and the riding is more fun.
Thanks a lot.
Narcis – Oct 2015

Mick it was a pleasure to ride under your instruction. In any trade there is normal untrained practice , a trades person may have been doing this task proficiently for decades , much like my motorcycling but without professional tuition.Then you are given the opportunity to receive tuition by a master craftsman, not just a craftsman but one of the best of the best. The insight and experience that you brought to the day is just invaluable . The confidence and hands on knowledge, the calm but direct instruction coming over the headset and practical demonstration just elevate a persons riding.
We can all ride bikes, I’ve never had any major issues and I’ve ridden extensively in England a Europe but I learned plenty in a very short time.
I will strive to apply what I have learned to my every day ridding and make it second nature to adopt this professional style. I will certainly return and do more. It would have been great to have this 30 years ago when I started ridding !!
Never to late to learn . . .
Phil – Oct 2015

Thank you for today. Despite the fact I have been riding for some 40 odd years I learnt so much today. I found that my road positioning is much improved which is increasing my visibility and that enables me to see more of what’s going on around me. I have also found that it is actually putting me in a safer place and more out of harms way. I was also astonished at how much information I had been missing from reading the actual road itself. I can honestly say that I now look at the road in a completely different way. Without doubt today has made me more confident on the road. Safer and a much better rider who is pleased with what I have learnt. I honestly believe that all motorcyclists should undertake one of these courses. It would save a lot of lives. Again a huge thank you
David – Oct 2015

Today was great fun, I really feel a lot happier and confident on the bike which is brilliant.
Ben – Sept 2015

Thanks again for the two days training and feedback. Was a real pleasure and can’t tell you how useful it’s been.
Heinrich – Sept 2015

What a great day and I’m 1000% better for it !! Thank you for your time and patience. I will be back !!
Neil – August 2015

Thank you for for an outstanding day on Friday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day learning and developing the riding skills that hopefully make me a better and safer rider. The feedback was interesting/informative and thorough to help me focus on areas to improve. Your demonstration rides were excellent with the commentary in our ears of exactly what you were thinking, looking at, planning and doing.
Malcolm – July 2015

Just wanted to say thanks for a memorable day – thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot from it.
John – July 2015

I really enjoyed yesterday and felt my riding had improved dramatically by the end of the day. Its interesting that with every training session one inches forward, learning new techniques and the tension eases and ride begins to flow more smoothly.Thank you very much for the enjoyable day, its as much about the company as the learning.
Alex – July 2015

Brilliant day. Been riding on and off for a tad under 50 years. It just goes to show you can teach an old dog new tricks!. Thank you
Geoff – July 2015

Thanks so much for the session yesterday, without doubt the most enjoyable day of riding I’ve had, Superb.
Stuart – July 2015

Thank you very much for an excellent day’s training. I had loads of fun and, more importantly, learned a lot. I’ll admit I was little surprised by your initial critique, I guess we all think we’re better than we really are. But I could see straight away what you were getting at, you put things across really well. It was great to discover that I could actually ride a lot better after your feedback and the hints and comments over the radio were really helpful. My Bike Safe day was really good in itself but this follow up day has really made a difference. Thanks again.
Rik – June 2015

Many thanks for the great training you provided. This was both instructive and enjoyable – it was certainly an eye opener and I can better appreciate the ‘proactive approach’. Meanwhile I’ll be taking on board your recommendations and plan to book a follow up session for you to check on progress. If anyone reading this is thinking about advanced training please go for for it, Mick is an excellent and patient trainer.
Bob – May 2015

I would like you to pass on our genuine thanks for the day.I thoroughly enjoyed the assessment and feedback, which I have to say I was extremely nervous about, but hey that made me more aware of my surroundings.Mick you are extremely professional in your teaching methods and really loved the way you tailored the day to cover two experienced riders and me.!
I would strongly advertise the fact to all my biker buddies to seriously consider doing this day and Bike Safe as I can honestly say it has made me a more aware safe rider.
Janet – May 2015

Many thanks to Mick for the best training day ever! the bike to bike communication made the training delivery seamless during riding sessions with demo rides providing an invaluable way of quickly learning road craft. This course has put me well on the way to my target of ROSPA gold and fully recommended this course to all bikers wishing to improve their riding skills.
Stuart – May 2015

A big thank you.I can’t emphasise how beneficial the ‘refresher’ was yesterday – I gained so much – thank you for your time, expertise and patience. I will be back next year!
John – March 2015

What a fantastic day, thanks so much Mick, your confidence and enthusiasm was infectious. I know I feel a much better more aware rider.
Russell – March 2015

A big big thank you for a fantastic day out back on two wheels after so many years, from the first cup of coffee this morning you made me feel so at ease and talking me through the basics gave me the confidence to listen and learn as the day unfolded.
Peter – Feb 2015

I can honestly say that the ride back from Maldon to my house was the first time I have really felt in complete control of the bike. I really think that was the best money I have ever spent in all the years I have been riding.
Grahame – Nov 2014

Thank you so much for a fantastic day once again I really enjoyed myself and your company. Your style of instruction is so clear and consistent, every time we go out I feel I learn so much from you.
Nigel – Oct 2014

I had an excellent two days and really enjoyed your company. You have a unique teaching style which reflects your experience and commitment. It is real pleasure to learn from you. I am delighted I made the journey from Liverpool to visit and found 2 days a perfect time frame.
Simon – Sept 2014

Just wanted to say thank you to Mick for a very intense but really useful day. Plenty of good feedback, now just need to absorb and process in my own time. Highly recommended.
Jack – July 2014

Thanks for the rapid feedback, always gratefully received. I find your style of instruction engaging and allows me to reflect in a productive fashion, thank you.
Paul – June 2014

I had such an amazing time, other instructors tried to teach me advanced riding, but I am considered a difficult student … somehow, you got me to understand what I’m supposed to do, managed to make me a significantly better and safer rider, and in the process gained a new friend as well. Well done Mick
Gabe – June 2014

Those few hours with you were worth their weight in gold. I needed to ride with someone that knew what they were doing and whose words I could trust. You fitted the bill perfectly, even if perhaps you were not aware of it! My confidence in my skills has been refreshed and my desire to improve them is renewed. That’s primarily down to you and so I say ‘thank you’.
Andrew – May 2014

Total Advanced training combined constructive input with a thoroughly professional approach to motorcycle road riding.I enjoyed the experience and know that demonstrating the” approach” will add to my overall pleasure gained from being
out on the bike.
Hamish – March 2014

Thank you for a enjoyable and informative day. I keep watching the video – its a great learning method.
John – March 2014

Thanks for a great experience…and thanks for the ‘photos and the written feedback which are a vivid reminder and a prized benchmark.We both really enjoyed the experience on the Essex roads. Thanks for the riding passion that you communicate so well.
Michael and Nadia – March 2014

Brilliant day out : thanks for the feedback and for the overall package:Amazing what 2 days of fairly intense coaching can do for your safety and skills: I knew as we went along the two days that I was improving every minute. I really like your training/coaching style, too. (and have gone through the video: really useful to see it from another perspective)Really good value.I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but training like that is the “best accessory you can buy for your bike”
George – Nov 2013

Thanks for all your expertise and patience-what a difference in my riding in such a short space of time. Its made it even more enjoyable..,definitely a life long addiction!
Sally – Nov 2013

Thanks so much you were very patient and a brilliant rider and teacher. I must confess I was nervous to start with but you gave me a lot of confidence and all you said and showed me was logical and sensible and in retrospect
obvious but needed pointing out! Your example of moving your head two inches in the cafe was a remarkable example of why it all clicked together
Before the morning, riding windy wet Essex rural roads would have filled me with dread but suddenly I had a plan and advice so it sort of came bit by bit! The balance of theory and practice was perfect and although there was a lot to learn you paced it well so it wasn’t overwhelming.
Damian – Sept 2013

A first class and very enjoyable day; great deal of high-quality information, all passed over in a friendly, highly professional and intelligible manner. Extreme value for money, given that some of these skills could mean the difference between life and death.
Steve – Sept 2013

Thank you very much for the feedback and suggestions. One of the most helpful things I’ve done all year: the passion and professionalism really comes across. Will take a month to practice on longer rides and then come back for the Rospa training.
Heinrich – August 2013

DVDs have arrived, very, very happy with them. This has to be some of the best money I have spent on biking! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and putting into practice what I have picked up.
I have mentioned my experience on the bike forum that I frequent and you may have some more business soon.Thanks again for a superb and valuable service
James – June 2013

Had a safe and smoother ride home thanks to you.A great day and cant wait for the next one
Stephen – May 2013

Just coming back to you on the DVD. Have to say its really good to see what you see, it also reinforces what you were saying about positioning etc. I’d say its a must have, great picture quality to!
Peter – May 2013

Thanks again for making me feel very welcome and relaxed and creating a training environment in which I never felt pressurized. I appreciate the effort you put in to the structure and planning of the day around certain areas of concern for me . I found your instruction comprehensive and easy to follow enabling me to address my concerns and obtain a feeling of achievement in improving those areas. For me your feedback was delivered in a very professional, positive and encouraging way which enabled me to take on board what you said and improve my riding.
Neale – May 2013

Just a note to say many thanks for a fabulous day yesterday. As ever I learned loads and I’m sure I will have your voice in my head for the next 6 months.
Roger – May 2013

I really enjoyed the day and felt that I learned a great deal – plenty for me to put into practice; I thought that the practical and theory sides were both outstanding and really helped to bring on my knowledge and capabilities a great deal. I was not expecting so much from one day.
Peter – April 2013

Thanks for a great day. It was good to meet a real life super hero. My confidence has improved so much, there was a different person on my bike for the ride home.
Simon – March 2013

I am delighted to have been awarded the RoSPA Gold, but more than that I have thoroughly enjoyed each of my training days and have learnt something every time to improve my riding. The instruction and guidance you give has been of the highest quality and your style and demeanor are superb. You have encouraged me to ‘get it right’ and to be the best I can be when out riding.
Mick, I would recommend you to anyone wanting to improve their riding, whether that be through some refresher type training or a full RoSPA riding course. Bloody brilliant!
Andy – Feb 2013

Spend a day with Mick Jones, it could just save your life. Im not just saying that I thought I was an ok rider with 20 years experience having done thousands of miles including 2 years as a despatch rider in central London
But when I fell off in the Alps last year I realised that something wasnt right. I only clipped a wing mirror but it had me off, and on a hairpin bend with a sheer drop I was lucky not to slide down the mountain…the bike did fall but luckily caught round a tree a few feet down
Mick diagnosed my problem within the first hour out on the road. After his initial assessment of our riding (I went with a mate) he sat us down and went through the areas he thought we could improve on: he did this with charm and humour, 100% non judgmental. This disarmed us and allowed us to take on board what he was saying.
He went on to outline his advanced riding technique and how he does it, and we went out on the road and followed him. I expected him to ride like an old woman but having established that we dont like to hang around he was riding at a pace that I found quite challenging to keep up with! It was a brilliant example of fast paced but totally safe riding along with a running commentary as he did it over the radios including pointing out all the hazards hundreds of metres ahead before he got to them. It was amazing. Talk about multi-tasking…
Whatever your idea of the stereotypical copper, forget it. I was thinking all the usual things about him and I was frankly weary of turning up on my heavily modified TRX. I wondered if he might start by inspecting the bike and pointing out all things he didnt like about it. But Micks not like that at all. Hes totally human and humorous tells it how it is but in such a disarming manner that we just had fun the whole day.
I went along to learn how to be a better rider. I got much more I learned to ride faster but probably ten times more safely, and I had a brilliant day. Bargain.
Go for it.
Andrew – 2012

Thanks again for a great day, I will be advising some of my bike chums to consider your training course to.
Graham – Nov 2012

Thanks for the day out yesterday. The tuition and guidance were really useful in hopefully getting me ‘back on track’ after 18 months of only intermittent riding.
Paul – October 2012

Once again a fantastic day all round, both productive and enjoyable throughout.
Tim – Sept 2012

It has been a very productive day for me and I am indebted to you for all your efforts and kind encouragement.
Paul – August 2012

I put my name forward after attending my annual Essex bike safe day to do an Advanced motorcycle training with Mick Jones. My day started at boreham service MacDonalds where Mick introduced me To Mel Warren a serving Essex police officer who I have seen in and around Finchingfield but had never spoke to or meet before.
From the start Mel was straight talking and to the point I was told by her that she was going to make my Brain fry with all the info she was going give me throughout my days training (AND MEL DID).
The training from Mel was second to none Mel gave me loads of good pointers for my future motorcycle riding.I would recommend Total advanced motorcycle training to everyone
Clive – July 2012

I thought I’d just drop you a line to say thanks again for a truly great couple of days. I really enjoyed the training and feel I got so much out of it.
Dave – July 2012

Once again I want to thank you for making the training session so informative and enjoyable, I would recommend your training to anyone thinking of buying a bike old or young.
Paul – June 2012

Thanks for the input I found the day a great learning experience and I feel far more equipped to ride, I will at a later date be contacting you for some more training, thank you once again Mick. I will also recommend you to others.

Andy – May 2012

What a fantastic day, but I think you were the inspiration. I just did what I was told!! Keep up your good work as it really does save lives.
Gary – April 2012

Thanks for the first class tuition which was delivered in a friendly and professional manner. The two days training was rewarding and extremely enjoyable and I will have no hesitation in recommending Total Advanced Training to other bikers
Terry – April 2012

Thank you so much for today and the excellent training I received. I feel so more confident than I was just 24 hours earlier.
Darren – March 2012

As usual, had a highly enjoyable and productive day.
Chris – March 2012

Just a quick note to say how much James and I enjoyed Saturdays session with Terry. Totally endorsed our view that this is the right thing to be doing
Jeff – March 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed the day, Terry was an excellent instructor. All in all I am really glad I attended both courses and would definitely recommend them .I found them very proactive and friendly and wish you all the best with future courses, as they will save life’s.
Steve – August 2011

Thank you again for Monday. I do think last night you saved my life due to a driver being half asleep and did not stop until well over the stop sign to my left. If I had not been in position 3 and looked well into the turning he would have hit me for sure. Even the wife has commented on how much smoother my car driving has become. Can’t wait for the next day.
Steve – August 2011

I can’t rate you highly enough, top man and top instructor.
Chris – July 2011

The day was excellent as I said at the time and the feedback is something that I will be able to refer back to. To say the training you gave me was good is a understatement. I feel like a new rider with lots more confidence.
Paul – June 2011

DVD received today, very useful to reiterate the training, the camera doesn’t lie and your commentary shows how much you observe!
It was a really worthwhile experience for me and I would like to thank you again.
David – April 2011

Many thanks for another great day out, thoroughly enjoyed it and its given me a really good understanding of the skills to work towards, I will definitely want to come back and progress further.

Thank you for the feedback, it has been such a great experience and I am getting so much more from my riding. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly rewarding. I can’t thank you enough.
Stewart – Nov 2010

The simple fact is that what you have taught me in two days advanced
instruction may be instrumental in saving a life, quite possibly mine or
Anne’s. For that I shall never be able to thank you enough.
Malcolm – Oct 2010

Many thanks again Mick for a hugely rewarding experience. Being familiar with how challenging the art of demo with patter is, I found observing you fascinating and extremely impressive.
Stewart – Oct 2010

Thanks for a great day Sunday. I felt I gained a great amount from the day and my riding has definitely moved forward to a higher level. I think the day is put together in an excellent way which made understanding our errors and making improvements very easy.
