    Highly recommended by dealerships & riders - I hadn't ridden in almost 20 years. Wife, kids...life got in the way. I needed a refresher course, especially with the way people drive in Arizona. The coaches at RideSmart delivered the material in such a position way. It was great. Even the stuff that was review for me was re-introduced in a way that I'm a much more aware rider now. I loved this class, and can't recommend it enough. RideSmart avoided the big corporate cattle treatment and actually treated me like a person. Top-notch staff. Five stars!

    A Definite MUST DO Before Getting on a Motorcycle! I am a proud graduate of last weekend's class. I had had a fair amount of riding experience before coming to the class and was not expecting to be challenged or learn much. However, I'm happy to say that I was challenged and that I did learn many new techniques. It was well worth the investment of time and money. I was particularly impressed by how professional, yet friendly, patient and encouraging you and every one of your instructors are. It was clear that you all genuinely enjoy the sport of motorcycling and want your students to join you in experiencing that as well. The service was so personalize, professional and critical to riding in today's traffic. I hope to join you and your graduates on an upcoming ride very soon. I wish you great success and have already referred someone in my office to your fine school. Regards,

    This school is better than the rest! My wife and I took an Intro to Motorcycling at a competitor in Gilbert. I later found out that the Intro class is not a Motorcycle Safety Foundation course. Instead it's just a way to get people interested in the school. My wife was degraded and yelled at. She left the class riding. So when the time came that my wife and I took a real motorcycle training course that offered the full MSF curricula and licensing, we decided on RideSmart. We'd heard only good things about them from other students and from our insurance agent. The experience was night and day. The folks at RideSmart were warm and welcoming from the very first time we talked to them. The training was professional and delivered in a useful, knowledgable way. Definitely not a class that anyone would cry in! I am happy to say my wife and I completed the course and now have our licenses. I can't recommend RideSmart enough, as they turned our experiences around 180 degrees!

    The best place to get a motorcycle license. I have to be honest, I googled a lot and did my homework before I decided and RideSmart looked like the best place to go to. After 2 of my friends took the course they STRONGLEY recommended me to go there to get my motorcycle license so I went there. I had a really great time there (even in the learning session on Thursday). Don (the owner) was the teahcer of the class on Thursday and we really had a good time. In addition to learning a life saving stuff we also had a good time. Regarding the riding lessons (Saturday and Sunday), I had some experience with motorcycles but I learned so much more than I knew. The tutors were great and, once again, managed to combine teaching important stuff with humor and before we knew it, the first riding day was over. The second was just a bit stressfull, but only because you are being evaluated while riding the bike. Regardless, we still had a great time. I spoke with most of this class students (November 5th-6th) and they all had a great time. Now, regarding the negative reviews, I'm not so sure why people wrote them. My guess is that the people who didn't pass the course (failed either the written or riding tests) wrote them because I went through the bad reviews today (after I took the course) and I have no idea what these people are talking about. I can only tell you this, if you're planning to take the course with RideSmart, you'll enjoy every minute you're there and just like my friends, I strongley recommend this school.

    What a great experience! RideSmart came highly recommended by every motorcycle dealership I talked to. They aren't the largest school in town, which I actually think is a good thing! I really liked their personalized approach. They followed the MSF book, but delivered the education in a professional, yet compassionate format. Sometimes it's hard for us older guys to learn something new...but the instructors as RideSmart were really patient and made it fun. I liked how my individual performance was analyzed during each exercise, and improvements were recommended to me while I was still learning. It wasn't a learn it or you're out! They really worked on crafting my skills to help me learn. My best recommendation is what I give to friends and fellow riders - attend RideSmart even if you have some experience. The accident avoidance training is priceless at any stage.
