I am very delighted to have passed my CBT with Alba MTA today! I would definitely recommend their services to any new riders, looking to prepare for and pass their CBT. The instructors are patient, knowledgable and caring - they let you go at your own pace and comfort, ensuring now only that you are confident and sure in your skill, but also safe and in control of your machine. One piece of advice, I would give, is to book at least one pre-CBT course before going for the actual CBT. This will give you a decent head start and overview of the actual CBT, saving you money and effort. A very big thank you to John ( my instructor) and the Alba MTA team, I am looking forward to passing my full license with the help of your excellent team!
I wanted a motorbike at the age of 16, but my parents wouldn’t allow me !!! It has taken me 60 years, and with the help of Alba Motorcycle Training Academy, I have achieved my boyhood dream. Thanks to the whole team at Alba MTS, who, with patience and professionalism have taught me to ride safely and get my full licence. Better than ‘Best in the West’ this is the place to go to learn to ride safely and properly…the whole atmosphere is relaxed and great fun, with lots of laughs and you meet so many new friends.
Not only a great training academy, but a real sense of community down at ALBA. I sat my CBT there last year, and I've popped in a few times since then for a chat and a brew. I attended the WDC ride out the other week, which was a great experience, and for a very worthy cause. The instructors here really listen to the students and cater for their needs, meaning that the riders that come out of here are more confident and safer on the road. in my humble opinion, they are a great asset to the biker community as a whole, and I would recommend them to anyone wanting to start out or get back on a motorbike.

good knowledgeable staff make you feel comfortable people who have never ridden a bike should do these pre cbt training I've done a couple with John who's an experienced instructor and has loads of patience I just want to be confident and feel safe before I do my full cbt
Went on a back to biking course with Calum. Incidentally the only training course that offers this course in black and white and communicates well with you. 2 other training schools I tried closer to home one of which did not take on board my requirements properly and one just ignored my request, I hope they read this . Good facilities, good bikes and good kit. All instructors happy to talk to you and make you feel part of the team for the day. Back to biking or learning to get a licence Alba provide it all with Glasgow playing a big part with its diverse roads and conditions. Biking in Glasgow at any level will set you up well for biking anywhere . Calum my instructor for the day was a man with a talent . Second by second guidance out on the road and instructions easily followed and delivered on a timescale that was comfortable. His consideration on me was split second 100 % of the ride with my safety and freedom his mission for the day. That is a high level of training in any field. As I am sure all instructors at Alba will be. It was well worth the 80 miles round trip for the service received. John
fantastic day today doing my CBT. First time touching a bike, however John (the instructor) was Incredibly patient and had a broad range of knowledge for all aspects of the CBT and more. fully enjoyed today and looking forward to revisiting the centre for the next step getting my cat A. highly recommended the company!
Lovely instructors! Passed my CBT today Definitely will be recommending to others 😃
Went from CBT to full licence with Alba training academy. Cracking group of guys, can’t recommend them enough, so welcoming and a good laugh too.
Recently done my training with alba to get my A2 license after redoing my cbt with them last year the guys are fantastic with great encouragement to help you get your license, facilities are great, Lessons are more like a day out rather than training with a stress free environment thanks to Callum Chuck and Alex for helping me get my A2 license 100% recommend these guys if your looking for your license 👍🏍
A great place to learn to ride! Did CBT all the way through to my full licence, all the instructors are excellent and really professional but still have a good laugh at the same time! Highly recommend to anyone learning to ride or even wanting refreshers! 10/10
Thank you so much to Alba for providing me with the opportunity to get back on a bike.. a massive thanks to Gordon Mears for his patience, a true gentleman.!! 😁
My dad sat his CBT test with John yesterday and couldn't praise him enough. Said he was really patient and considerate at all times (must have the patience of a saint he's not the easiest of men to boss about lol) Would recommend to everyone
Sat my CBT here and will definitely be returning to do my full licence. Our instructor was Chuck and he gave us all the necessary tools and info to be safe out on the roads. The weather was perfect, the training was fun. All round superb day!! Thanks guys
I went through the whole process from a beginner with no experience to now successfully passing my MOD 2. The whole team, from the instructors to the staff in the office were fantastic. Very easy going and couldn’t do enough for me. The training was progressive and when it came to test days I felt confident from the instruction that I received. Never a shortage of laughs either when out on lessons. I would highly recommend ALBA, and have in fact said to my brother he should do his training with the guys as he’s keen to learn to ride.
👍 great training school from cbt to advance training
Just completed my A2 licence with alba, instructors were first class from the start, all advice and training that was needed was given, passed both mod 1 and mod 2 first time which says it all. Would definitely recommend alba to anyone. Thanks again
When I first came to Alba I already had my CBT but after a few falls I was really nervous and had absolutely no confidence at all, I was ready to give up but with the help and patience of all the guys at all Alba I now hold a full license and own a BMW R1100. Could not be happier. No matter your experience or confidence levels these guys will get you there they really are the best in the business
Great staff, fab facilities and good fun, felt like more of a day out. Good machines to learn on and friendly instructors couldn’t be more helpful! I had never sat on a bike before and John managed to teach me, that is an achievement in itself and probably why he has grey hair! 😂 I’ll be back for the ride outs and popping in for a brew if I ever pass by! Great bunch!
Best experience ever👌 great friendly instructors who put you to ease from the start 👍
I thankfully passed my CBT today, not for the first time but definitely the best time. Chuck and John were marvellous, so patient and friendly. I was a bit rusty but with encouragement and a wee coffee half way through the very wet windy morning, I got my mojo back and had a great time out on the roads in the afternoon and the sun came out too 👍 I'd definitely recommend these guys, they're brill 😁
Just completed my CBT with Alba. absolutely spot on! this is my second CBT, the first a few years ago was nothing compared to this. Safety is paramount, the learning process is great and they make it easy and fun. can't wait to continue the journey with Alba. great place and great staff ✌️
I will definitely recommend alba motorcycle training academy it's the best what you can get
Oh WOW what a journey I have had !!! John who started me off on this journey, Alex who did the big bike conversation and Callum who has pushed me to my limits to overcome the final hurdles. I can't thank Alba MTA enough and I would recommend them to anybody who wishes to learn to ride a bike safely. Thanks to you all Gail....
Thank you to the staff at Alba for taking a total novice to passing full test in 5 weeks. The staffs' dedication and encouragement under the watchful eye of Callum made the process fun in a great learning environment with brilliant facilities. Alba had been recommended to me by numerous experienced motorcyclists and they were true to their word with a massive emphasis on road safety. I would encourage anyone thinking about a motorbike licence not to hesitate in using Alba. If, like me, a total novice I would encourage any future students to do the pre-CBT also as was massively beneficial. Thanks to Callum, Chuck, John and Alex for their time, effort and expertise.
Beatrice Catherine Clark
cant thank John n Callum enough for helping me through my cbt will be back for the bigger bike
Can't thank the team at Alba enough for getting me through my full license. Everyone is very welcoming and make you feel at ease when nervs are starting to kick in.
Passed my CBT today, big thanks to John and Calum, guys are great and very patient 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ would highly recommend. Already booked a lesson for Thursday 😁. Cheers lads
Can't thank John and Alex enough, passed my cbt last week and picked up my bike today. Looking forward to the summer 🏍️😊
What a fantastic experience with Alba!! I highly recommend them. I completed my CBT and couldn’t be happier with the instruction I received. The bikes and scooters are in really good condition too which makes it feel even more comfortable and safe.
Having never rode a bike before I was a tad nervous as expected, John and Calum were great instructors who brought the learning process to it’s simplest form with great information about the CBT and biking in general along with good humour to keep it light and entertaining. I would recommend to those who have little or no experience to chat to the gents about pre CBT as I found out its easily underestimated. The rest of the team provided us with good information for next steps and can really cater to any level! Thanks to you all, especially John for his patience!! Excellent experience! Aidan
Excellent training and direction from the team at Alba today during my CBT. Having never rode a motorbike before they got me through the training in one day. Would highly recommend to anyone who hasn't been on a bike before!
Had a good day great instructions great wee bikes thanks lads ????
Great instructors great bikes n great learnin top lads n very friendly bikers for bikers
Great staff. Really clear in explaining stuff to you. Would recommend to anyone wanting to start riding
thanks to Callum and his team . couldn't have done it without them . now have my full licence . delighted
Well what can I say, I am so pleased I found Alba. Not only did they help me on my journey to get my full licence, but because I knew they were right for me I decided to do it earlier than planned. The team are brand new, and what a fabulous service and training they give, the learner is the very focus and heart of what they do. I have now made a new set of friends and I won’t be a stranger. I’ll be back for a cuppa and blether, and to do my advanced riding. I can’t thank you enough, you have been amazing. Special thanks to Chuck ❤️❤️
Highly recommend Alba Training, all the staff are outstanding and so welcoming. Just passed my CBT today and on the road towards my A2 License on the 123 deal. Looking forward to the Journey ahead ????
Brilliant experience from start to finish, support there when you need it and great coaching throughout 5????
Just passed my CBT today. I would like to highly recommend them. Very professional, patience and give you full knowledge in how to do it right and safe in the road. Cheers guys
The best motorcycle school in Glasgow. Here I met proffesional Instructors and a nice, warm, frendly atmosfere. Now I feel more confident on the bike and belive I can to do more. Tkanks for my Instructor John, very patient and I am so sorry for yours grey Hair/ I made it/
great instructors, highly recommended! thanks for everything!
After 40 years of going to get my bike license I’ve started the process. The guys are professional, informative and very calm and relaxed which puts you at ease and although I have my theory and practical learning ahead of me I feel confident that I will get license after all these years.
Great days training with a great instructor made everything so easy would like to thank them again and will defo be recommending them to my freinds thanks John great instructor
First time on a bike with these guys, from my CBT to having now passed mod 2, can’t fault the staff, bikes and the facilities. Big thanks to all the guys at Alba ????????
Being run by a great guy, keep up the great professional work????
highly recommend alba to anyone looking for bike training , guys tailor training to suit any stage you are at in your learning process and there results speak for themselves !
If you want the best training and instructors then look no further, these guys are first and foremost experienced bikers with great depth of knowledge and it shows.. the instruction and teaching techniques are 2nd to none- great place and would highly recommend to anyone,experienced or inexperienced ????????????????
Just completed the road 2 recovery from cbt to full bike licence and what a pleasure it has been I can not recommend these guys enough the training is second to none that I passed my theory mod 1 and mod 2 on my first attempts with 1 minor Every effort was made by the team and Calum is highly experienced and the boys are spot on Alex and chuck bring you right up to scratch and identify your weakness quickly and help rectify fast All in all brilliant experience brilliant service and brilliant guys Don’t try the rest go straight to the best folks you won’t regret it Mike .
The guys here are great, after 10years of not not being on a bike I done my CBT with them and now on course for the full license. The rider plus course and 650 conversion is an excellent way of going on to the bigger bikes or if like me getting back on a bike after a lengthy time away. The instructors are very friendly and understanding and will be able to get even the most inexperienced riders more comfortable and confident with riding. Thoroughly recommend these guys to anyone in the area looking to get on 2 wheels.
Fantastic place! I went from CBT to a full set of 1st time passes. No previous bike experience. great friendly staff, had a laugh throughout and loved every minute. Highly recommend!!
Excellent guys, don't put to much pressure on you offering a relaxed learning environment. Passed Mod 1 and 2 first time. Thanks a million
passed my cbt with alba excellent service from start to finish and will definitely be doing the rest of my bike training with them
What a great bunch of instructors very knowledgeable and friendly put you at ease they are simply the best would have no hesitation in recommending them they are professional and the bikes they use are top class and well maintained. If you are thinking of getting into biking or not ridden in years get in touch with these guys ????????????????
If these guys can teach me to ride a bike then they can teach you. Great bunch of lads and i am well glad i went with Alba. Cheers guys forever greatfull ???????????????????????????????????????? (stevie boyle)
I can't thank the guys at Alba enough, all the way from doing my CBT back in August to passing my Mod2 in October, from day 1 the training and guidance has been excellent. Every one in the team is full of knowledge to take advantage of and I've spent almost as much time post lessons sitting chatting with the team in the Bikers Rest (making liberal use of the coffee and tea facilities) as I did on the bike. These guys will return in bucket loads every bit of your engagement in learning.
Currently undertaking the road to recovery program and the effort made by the team is outstanding the training has already made a good impact on my mental health there ability to put you at ease while learning new skills has given me courage to try new things in my life awesome guys can’t thank you enough ��
All the instructors at Phoenix Alba that I worked with were great! You can have a good laugh, relaxed environment and learn a lot. The team are very professional and got me through mod 1 and mod 2 on my first attempt. The team were very accomodating when I have had to cancel and reschedule. Would recommend them to anyone! Cheers Guys �.
I am riding bikes since the age of 16 and have ridden in various countries. I thought it was time to give a shot to biking in Scotland. I went to a training school in Motherwell but after several attempts and many classes i was told i wasnt made for it ????????. First of all they used different bikes for training and got a very different bike for the test. Not to forget arriving to the test centre 10-15 minutes late. I then contacted Calum at Alba MTA. I was immediately made comfortable and my training was designed in the way that i was comfortable with. All the bikes were new and they take you to the test centre on the bike so that you are settled. I passed my mod 1 and mod 2 because of These guys. Alba MTA is highly recommended and is by far the best training school in all of Scotland.
I've just competed the CBT followed by the full DAS course. I passed both MOD1 and MOD2 first time thanks to the excellent training from these guys. They were calm and patient with their training giving you confidence out on the road and for the tests. A good bit of banter along the way made it a great experience and if you want to learn to ride then this is the place to go.
Completed my CBT with alba, whole experience from booking to completing the training was so straight forward. Had a great instructor, John, who imparted lots of extra knowledge to make sure I could keep myself safe on the road. Looking forward to going back to get my full licence.
Still buzzing from graduating!Amazing team at Alba. They truly care and want you to do well. Cannot recommend enough! Anyone looking for a new adventure this is the place to start!
Just completed my Rider Plus and started my DAS today. Can't recommend this place enough, 1st class service and tuition. Can't wait for my next lesson!
amazing bunch of guys couldn't recommend them enough. They were patient and informative. Thanks to Calum, John and Alex for helping me build my confidence and really can't wait till we meet again for my big bike. One happy little lady here
Started off with few pre-CBT lesson & passed my CBT today with these guys. Brilliant experience, John spent a lot of time building confidence & ability through these lessons and through the assessment itself. Loads of emphasis on biking safely, I now feel equipped to get on there on my own and start working towards next stage of my motorcycle license. So glad I’m learning with Phoenix Alba MTA ????????
Just gained my full licence with the help from Alba MTA. So very pleased with the teaching methods and instruction from Alex and Chuck. Anyone looking to get on two wheels or move on up to a full licence - this school should be your first stop!!
Thanks to all the instructors who helped me on my CBT today, looking forward to taking more training with you and getting through it next time!
top quality great training excellent bunch of guys
Over the years I have done 3 CBT courses and Phoenix MTA is by far the best place to train. Brand new bikes (no clapped out old bangers) Huge training area Individual coaching Friendly and experienced instructors Won't be a 4th as DAS is getting smashed next. Go elsewhere at your own cost Train right, train with Phoenix!
My husband and I sat our CBT at Phoenix with Cammy & John. had a brilliant experience, felt safe and well informed. Can't recommend these guys enough, looking forward to going back for some lessons and our full test.
Phoenix Alba....thanks for taking me from first time riding a motorbike to passing my CBT in one day.....Can't thank the Instructors enough for their great work in teaching me and more importantly making everyone on the course fell comfortable and at ease 10☆ thanks guys
I would like to thank everyone at Phoenix Motorcycle Training. A very professional, knowledgable and friendly service throughout my training. I would definitely recommend training with these guys.
did my CBT with them and it was professional and entertaining. I did my CBT 2 years ago and was not given the amount of info and training I got from phoenix motorcycle training. would highly recommend them
The guys are extremely professional and are bikers at heart which makes the whole process really enjoyable as well as the best way to learn. I highly recommend this as the best way to start your bikers journey
Just went through my CBT today and passed. Was a brilliant experience with top notch instructors. Looking forward to the next part of my journey in getting my full Bike licence. Thanks for the support guys. ????????
I have recently completed my motorbike licence with these guys, who have taken me from scratch to passing my Mod2 test. I found all the instructors to be very friendly and professional while give good feedback on what you need to improve on. I would highly recommend Phoenix Alba to anyone wanting to get into motorbikes.
guys are great at training you and would highly recommend them
Alex and John helped me get my cbt yesterday . Both guys very calming and helpfull thanks guys .
extremely professional from start to finish, very friendly and helpful should you be worried about any aspect of the test, but instructors will soon have you relaxed and enjoying the day.
CBT passed today, awesome instructors and great day riding, would highly recommend to anyone!
Throughly enjoyed my couple of weeks training at Phoenix MTA and also a little sad that it’s all over now that I’ve achieved my full licence via their Direct Access Course. Found all the staff friendly and welcoming. There’s also a great selection of motorcycles and safety gear available to use. Would recommend to anyone wanting to either just do their CBT or train for their full A licence.
had a fantastic day out with Phoenix motorcycle training .. was a bit nervous going on the big bike but cammy put me totally at ease and by the end of the day I left feeling more than satisfied and confident going forward. the facilities are second to none and far better than some I've looked at .. I'm so glad I signed up here ..thanks guys see you soon
10 out of 10 for all the guys involved at Phoenix motorcycle training in getting me from no experience to completing mod 2 today All the instructors are great guys and really down to earth .They make you fell welcome and at esse as soon as you step foot on there premises I would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to get into biking I'll be in for a coffee soon 🏍🏍🏍
Went to phoenix alba mta for my CBT and could not believe the passion for biking from these guys. So much so I was converted back to biking (after 27 years away) and it would not have been possible without this team. Halfway through the CBT I had booked my theory test and the next day had bought the bike I would eventually get! Craig made sure that we were all aware of the basic operations of the bike and reassured us at all times that we could do this - also made sure we knew all about his love for the scooter! Next we had Cammy for the on road part of the CBT and if we called it an experience I would not be doing it justice - he firstly made sure we could ride a bike to an excellent standard before going on road and treated us in a very professional and educational manner while pointing out small facts. These small facts included hazard avoidance, tips and observations, and the now mandatory course on that lot called . . . Cyclists. We felt completely at ease with Cammy knowing we were safe and secure but also learning things that perhaps were more advanced that what the CBT was for, but he felt it was his duty to make sure we understood all impacts and aspects of biking. Over the next few months I went from CBT to theory, conversion to 600cc, and to MOD1 and MOD2 through DAS with Cammy, Alex, and John. I cannot stress enough how this would not have been possible without all the team here - including Skye and Blue. The effort these guys go to is incredible and the skills, drills, commitment, passion, enthusiasm, patience, and a million other words I could use would not do them justice. They have given me everything they could have done and my journey may not have been completed without them - it certainly would not have been so enjoyable, so educational, so mindful of my safety, and the pinnacle must have been elected the first chairman of the cone patrol. I rang that bell with gusto when I completed my journey with them but they will always be with me when I bike. I have also kept in mind the coffee to biking ratio. I cannot thank all of you enough and hopefully I have demonstrated everything you bring to biking and bike training and safety on the roads and I think that I am also a better car driver from having listened to the team. Ps I still hear that voice in my ear when I forget my lifesavers . . . Or forget to switch off indicators . . .
I have done a direct access course with these guys and they have brought me through from zero experience, to passing my MOD 2. They were patient, helpful and willing to pass on their knowledge and experience. Thank you for all that you done guys and best wishes for the future.
excellent experience with alba motorcycles. thoroughly enjoyed, attention to detail. plenty of practise throughout the training. good, well explained drive and completion.
Thanks for training me today. Enjoyed being back on a bike after 5 year break. CBT completed and now itching to get back out on two wheels. Great team, would recommend to anyone looking to be introduced to a bike to use this training centre. ��
Did my DAS with Alba, from pretty much a novice to passing. Very professional and flexible helping to fit in around my work schedule and provide excellent training. Would recommend them 100%.
Fantastic instructors and very, very professional. Can truly recommend it to anyone even without any experience before like myself. Started from scratch and now on my new adventure. Thank you a lot !
If i could give more than 5 stars then I definitely would. Re-done my CBT with Alba and the team couldn't have been more amazing! Brilliant instructors and a really welcoming environment. Can't wait to complete the rest of my biking journey with the team. Update: I have since continued my training passing both my module 1 and Module 2 tests first time, all thanks to the team at Alba. Thank you!!
Completed my CBT yesterday, can’t thank John and Chuck enough. Just in time for the great weather today. Will be back to learn the big bikes soon! Cheers!
