Absolutely worthwhile course with a fantastic instructor. An action-packed day full of learning and fun, with Neil catering to the variety of skill levels on the course. Very highly recommended!
Hi Neil Thanks for a great day out. Learned so much from you , appreciated the feedback and tips. Excellent !!
I found Neil to be a very informative instructor and provided loads of potentially life saving techniques and tips. He also was happy to answer any questions I had. More than happy to have done the Bronze course that covered everything you’d require to advance from a learners license. I look forward to doing the Silver. Cheers Stu
Seems because I hadn’t done the instructer led course before hand I was always going to fail. My regret is not taking my go-pro as its my word vs the instructor. I would seriously recommend for anyone else they take their go-pro. The instructor should have one to back up their claims.
Neil is a natural born motorcycle instructor. Not only does he explain things clearly and calmly but he also exemplifies what it is to be an excellent rider. I learned as much from following him as I did from listening to him. Every rider should do this course, even if you think you know it all.
Neil is very knowledgable and every session is very professional and friendly. He provides top class instruction and valuable feedback to enhance the students riding ability.
Many thanks for a great days training which covered techniques for safe urban and rural riding. I appreciate how the course can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual and identify skills to work on. I’m keen to start on my ‘homework’ and improve by grade for the next course!
Neil proved that you CAN “ show an old dog new tricks…..”
A good day resulting in greater awareness when on bike along with a range of learnings and actions on how to be a safer and more confident biker.
(A coffee stop along the way would made it even more perfect ☕️😁😁👌……..).
I found the course very helpful and professional. At no time was there any pressure put on the team to preform outside our comfort zones .
We covered all aspects of the road code and common sense whilst riding around town and country .
I look forward to doing the gold course next year
Well done Neil and ACC for providing these courses
Excellent. Great refresher, with even more new tips as the last one I did was in Auckland. Great riding and great instructor.
Lorelle and I throughly enjoyed our day out with Neil Stodart doing a silver ride for ever course. New roads, new skills & great company 👌 Thanks Neil for a great day 👍
Absolutely fantastic, two hours very well spent! Thanks so much, Neil
Thanks Neil, the brief before the 6F Licence test was clear and thorough. The criteria to meet was explained well and the instructions through out the test were clear and delivered in good time to allow me adequate preparation to carry them out. Although I don’t think it is a necessity if you are a well and experienced rider, I would still recommend the optional combined training. This option helped with even greater clarity around common errors that could lead to unnecessary faults. Thanks again Neil.
Great day of training
Highly recommend the ride forever courses, really appreciated feedback on my own riding from a qualified instructor with a wealth of knowledge. The tips and tools you receive to keep as safe as possible on the road are priceless. Thanks Neil for a great day out with a great bunch of riders.
This is the second course I’ve done with empowered journeys and I’ve been impressed again with the professionalism and content. I’m pleasantly surprised with the skill development and feed back provided over the days tutorials. In particular co-ordinating natural navigational cues present when the road conditions lack formal signs to indicate road directional changes and simultaneously using the “vanishing point” principal to better adjust to changes in road contours. Another great takeaway for myself was a great explanation around breaking distances and breaking times relative to speed and stopping distance’s between motorcycles and cars and the increased awareness gained when assessing ride speed and space to maintain my “safe bubble” while riding. A great day of learning and riding.
Neil was an awesome teacher and clearly explained every part of the course. He was super encouraging and really put me at ease when I got nervous. It was really cool learning from him today and I highly recommend the course.
Great experience and Neil even taught an old guy a few new things :)
A very good day enhancing skills and picking up improved riding skills. Neil was a very knowledgable instructor and had a great coaching style highly recommend these courses to all motorcycle riders.
A great fun day with lots of learning, I would recommend to anyone.
An outstanding and knowledgeable instructor.
Great course to take well worth the investment Neil is a great teacher for any skill levels highly recommended
Great place to start for new motorcycle riders. Having never riden on one before I was very thankful for the safe place and establishing good rider behavior will be doing another round to undergo the test. I should be more confident next round having started here Thank you Neil your a legend 🙌😁😁
Great service as always. Clear instructions and enjoyable training. Will be in touch when I do my next test.

Had a great time doing the Bronze Ride Forever course with Neil. A good mix of theory and practical. Was very good to get some time following an experienced rider too.
Well worth upskilling to help with safer and more enjoyable riding. Thanks Neil!
