All Bikes Motorcycle Training Ltd

Motorcycle Training

We offer bike/motorcycle training for new and experienced riders, in Colchester, Clacton, Harwich, Sudbury, North Essex and South Suffolk. We are based just off the A12 & A134 at North Colchester.

This is a family run motorcycle training business, run by Steve and Louise Cook, the biking tradition carries on in the family, with both children holding full motorcycle licenses (taught by Steve). We wont give you the hard sell for bikes, clothing and helmets or push motorcycle mechanic services on you, we just deliver high quality training tailored to your needs with a smile.

Steve has been riding since he was 16 years old, with his first two wheels, a Honda SS 50, progressing to a GT 185 which was the love of his life. The biking passion has continued, whether on the road or off road. He’s been a instructor since 2009, deciding from day one that this was the job he loved doing. He’s also a member of several vintage trials bike clubs and can often be seen going ploughing up muddy fields in the interests of sport!

He has a lot of experience at both CBT and DAS level, has a fantastic pass rate, with 50% of the training taking place in Ipswich close to the test center, enabling students to feel familiar and confident with potential test routes.

Our direct access/A2 bikes are new with ABS, and one has been lowered/modified to make it suitable for ladies, shorter people and those who feel confident when they can place both feet on the floor. They are light, maneuverable and easy to control for both Mod 1 & 2 training.

Our aim is to support and train you to our highest standards, come and train with us, you will enjoy learning new skills to help you on the road. We want you to discover your inner biker, and we promise to put the fun into your biking.

Call us, book it, do it.


Due to the current COVID 19 virus we are no longer lending safety helmets, gloves or jackets, students are required to bring their own safety helmets. We will still provide radios and high visibility vests.

The student ratio has reduced to one instructor for every two students to keep a safe distance and reduce personal contact.

Students attending their MOD 1 & 2 tests are required to wear face coverings in the test center, these can be a neck tube pulled up over the nose and mouth.

Student Feedback

I would like to pass on my feedback re Steve and All bikes Training following me passing my 4 day all-inclusive DAS course.
Steve is friendly, approachable and patient with his students. I was a nervous 39 year old man who had previously passed (barely) a CBT on 2 previous occasions with 2 previous local schools (no names mentioned).
During those courses I felt that the instructors were treating each student as a "quick meal ticket" and I got no real sense of security or safety on the bikes I rode.
Steve is different…. he builds you up slowly, ensuring that you are comfortable on the lower powered machines before gradually progressing you onto the higher powered ones only when you're ready.
As a result I have not only just passed my MOD 1 and MOD 2 courses, but I now feel happy and in control of the bikes I sit on, rather than the bikes being in control of me.
Steve's role in this change was fundamental, and I thank him very much for what we achieved. As an added bonus Steve's DAS course prices are very good and include the cost of your tests themselves (which is fairly unusual).
Most importantly Steve never gives you the impression he is "watching the clock" and you don't feel as if you are treated like “just another punter”.
Fundamentally, I have been very impressed with Steve and All Bikes training and I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone I knew was looking to get professional and competent bike training in the future. Thank you Steve for putting another happy biker on the road.
