Just completed a great weekend on the ProRide Survival Training course. It was fantastic from start to finish - professional but more importantly fun too. The parking lot sessions where fun, interactive and with plenty hands on bike experience. Matt, Marty & Warren were awesome throughout with patience and a smile helping us all get on two wheels safely! We did Traffic 1 yesterday (I was in Marcel's group), I drove a 750cc Harley (a lifelong bucket item) and couldn't believe that after just 2 days I had the confidence to do so - that's down to the team at ProRide. I quickly realized that going at speed is fairly manageable on a bike, the real issues come at slow speed and maneuvering - which is what this course is all about.So glad I took it and would recommend to any new starters!

I will never forget my time with the team! So informative, extremely fun, and made some new friends. I'll only recommend ProRIDE to anyone. Brian, Joel, Matt, Ryan, Marty, and the rest of the team are the Best of the Best...Seriously. God Bless, guys. I had an unforgettable time. I loved every moment...
22:04 03 May 21
Having never driven a motorcycle before ProRIDE, the practical hands-on component of the course was not without challenges for me; the weekend was filled with stress, tears, and cursing. However, all three road instructors (Kevin, Marty and Matt) were absolutely amazing and very patient managing my numerous “challenges” over the weekend. Each instructor has a unique style and approach to teaching, coaching, explaining, and their combined skills and knowledge make them a fantastic team. It was definitely a steep learning curve, and the most money I’ve ever spent NOT having any fun, but it was worth every penny. I highly recommend the Survival Rider training course. Thank you ProRIDE.

I highly recommend the Survival Ride Course, my in class instructors Brian and Joel were rock stars and kept a fast and engaging pace. The parking lot guys Matt, Marty and Kevin where awesome. They had plenty of time for us older hesitant novice riders while giving the more experienced rusty riders extra challenges. A great place for novice riders to learn how to ride safely and for others to unlearn bad habits.
18:09 13 Apr 21
Thank youI really like the way that instructors train you in order to ride a Motorcycle.I would say riding a Motorcycle would be possible for everyone who get trained by Proride.
21:11 07 Apr 21
I did the survival rider course recently and had a fantastic experience! One of the best learning environments that I've been a part of, all thanks to the staff. They are all incredibly knowledgeable and personable, using humour as well as an innate understanding of people to make everyone's experience positive and comfortable. You will learn the skills to ride safely and be prepared to venture out on the roads on your own. Safety is drilled into you and you leave the class knowing that, while you now have a good foundation of skills, you're not an expert and will be learning for life! Was pleasantly surprised to hear about additional services offered to grads to further support their journey as a rider.

Hi, I'm Barry. And I just completed my Survival Training with ProRide! If you are thinking about taking to two wheels, this is the place to start. Led by a fun and personable group of instructors, this course sets you up to form good habits and join in the shared enthusiasm for riding. I'd like to thank Brian, Joel, Matt, John and Otto and all the other instructors who helped me through this course.
15:04 16 Mar 21
I was referred to ProRide from a friend. I am so glad I decided to go with them. Every single instructor here is passionate about students being successful and comfortable on a bike. The past 5 day's spent with ProRide were informative and fun! Thank you to all the instructors and, everyone else at ProRide!
05:25 15 Mar 21
These guys are just exceptional. I was blown away by the Proride team over the past four days. I started out with absolutely no knowledge of motorcycle riding and was just so encouraged by this course. The instructors are really passionate about motorcycles and are excellent teachers. Big shout out to Brian, Joel, Matt, Otto and John,

What a journey!! They teach the art of safe riding in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Riding in beautiful North Vancouver near the waters and mountain views is also a bonus!!! The resources and support available to students made all the difference in my riding confidence and a successful road test. I look forward to becoming a better motorist with their advanced classes.Highly recommend!!!
07:01 15 Sep 20
ProRIDE was such a great experience! I just finished the Survival Rider Training Program tonight and felt the need to write a review. Special thanks to Brian, John, Matt and Otto for making it such a fun experience for my cousin any myself. Look forward in continuing learning more from everyone at proRide in the near future.
07:11 11 Sep 20
A great place to learn / improve your motorcycle skills. I highly recommend ProRIDE.
14:40 10 Sep 20
The ProRide Survival Rider Class was a fantastic experience! The instructors each had their own personality and style that made learning fun, educational and safe. I highly recommend this team.
06:54 08 Sep 20
I came into the survival riders course not knowing how to even start a motorcycle. With the awesome experience and knowledge of the instructor's, I was able to learn how to ride in just 2 days. Big shout outs to Brain, Roy, Joel, Matt, Otto, and Marcel. Thanks for everything, you guys are truly the best. ProRIDE lives up to it's name and reputation. Highly recommended to anyone who has motorcycle experiance to advancand their skills and to those who haven't been on a motorcycle ever!!Moe
06:49 08 Sep 20
Overall the experience was amazing. When it came to the in class lectures Joel was incredibly informative and kept us engaged. When it came to the practical portion, Matt was incredibly enthusiastic and made sure everyone was being taken care of. Matt was also incredibly informative and truly helped progress us in confidents and ability, all within the short time of being in the program. Huge props to Matt and the other instructors (Otto, Roy) for really taking the time to help teach those in the class who were struggling. Overall extremely impressed and will make sure to continue to use pro-ride classes on a yearly basis to make sure my skills are developing and in check.
22:07 17 Aug 20
Can't imagine learning to ride without this program. Highly recommended.
18:33 16 Aug 20
Great and well structured course, great instruction and crew. Thanks guys!
19:02 13 Aug 20
12:14 10 Aug 20
Absolutely worth the money! 👌🏻Take advantage of the instruction, traffic classes, and bike rentals and you’ll pass your road test the first time with confidence.Would do it again.
22:54 04 Aug 20
Great instruction. Fun!
02:55 28 Jul 20
If I could give my experience at ProRIDE more than 5 stars I would. I recently took the Survival Rider Training Program with John, Otto, Brian, and Matt. They were EXCEPTIONAL with their instruction, demonstration, feedback and all with some humour. I'm a brand new rider with NO experience at all (can't drive a stick shift) and over 40 years old. Needless to say, I needed a lot of help. I can't imagine anyone not taking a motorcycle course even if you had some knowledge/experience. I appreciated learning about the safety aspect of riding. Naturally, they differentiated instruction to meet all the needs of the learners and at the end of my last lesson I felt encouraged and inspired to do more riding. I only wish that the training was longer....haha...practice time:)

Great pricing good service! I recommend Gary for any of your motorcycle training needs.
05:54 15 Jun 20
Recently completed survival training. Instructors very knowledgeable, patient and work hard to foster a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Excellent course for new riders or experienced riders looking to brush up on skills. Highly recommend. Had a blast!Justin
05:51 10 Mar 20
I cannot express in words how thankful I am to the whole team for making this experience amazing. Fun, encouraging, supportive and I felt safe the whole time. My time at proride was truly life changing. 🙏💜
22:37 09 Mar 20
Successfully completed my skills test yesterday with ProRide. I found their instruction to be excellent. Brian, Joel, Matt, Otto, and Roy were all top-notch. Looking forward to our traffic ride tonight!
15:58 18 Feb 20
I finished my Survival Rider weekend training last night (the first class of the year), and the whole experience was great! As a middle-aged guy who has lost a bit of his more risk-prone side, I was somewhat nervous to jump on a bike for the first time ever. ProRIDE made this so much easier and enjoyable. The instructors were all approachable, friendly, and really patient in answering questions. You can tell they want everyone to succeed in learning to ride and enjoy motorcycling. John, Brian, Matt (alright meow!), Joel, and the other instructors were really engaging and they kept us laughing through the initial frustration of learning to ride. I am shocked at how much I enjoyed the city ride last night and how confident I felt riding a bike with the group through North Vancouver. I highly recommend ProRIDE to anyone that is considering learning to ride!
09:13 22 Jan 20
06:33 04 Nov 19
An all around comprehensive training. The class is taught around acquiring practical and easy to apply riding fundamentals. The different aspects of safe riding skills are introduced in their most elementary form and then incrementally built up over the duration of the class to form a solid base for an all encompassing survival riding philosophy that should last a lifetime.The sincere drive from all instructors to prepare the students for safe street riding is present throughout the length of the 5 day class. Thanks John, Brian, Otto and Matt for a fantastic experience...
19:25 29 Oct 19
I decided to get licensed to ride a street bike and a friend recommended ProRide as THE place learn how to ride safely and proficiently on a motorcycle.I loved the 2 nights of theoretical training in the class with John and Brian BUT the best part was the practical training on the bikes, in the closed off parking lot at CapU.I grew up riding bikes but the class had a mix of all skill levels and I have to applaud the trainers for being so professional and how they made it fun for everyone.I highly recommend this group for training and today I did my pre-icbc-road-test-training and “passed” with flying colours!Thanks again everyone!!! Drive safely!!!
05:27 28 Oct 19
The best place to learn how to ride. Extra applause to the staff!
17:55 17 Sep 19
Great instruction. Great guys. I used the course as a refresher as I hadn't rode a bike for a long time. Definitely a good return on investment. Thank you!
07:51 27 Aug 19
ProRIDE's catalog of courses are top notch! I attended their signature "Survival Rider Training" programme this month, which is a unique course catering to riders of all skill levels. I learnt techniques and skills that I had not gained in my 6 years of riding experience hitherto.Motorcycling is an intuitive exercise in my opinion; and the ace instructors at ProRIDE are tremendously adept at enabling their students to discover their own potential in becoming successful and capable riders. All the sessions were super fun- as all learning should be- and each one of us had the privilege of individual attention and assessment.I would like to convey my deepest appreciation to ProRIDE'S maestros- Brian Antonio, Joel Cajapin, John Buddo, Matt Grannis. Otto To, and Marcel Hanslo for conducting a fabulous motorcycling training course and giving us all a memorable learning experience. I shall also holler a special shoutout here to my favourite instructor John Buddo, whose amazing skills left me in awe and whom I tried to emulate to the best of my abilities.I would encourage even experienced riders to sign up for any one of ProRide's courses because learning is an interminable lifelong process! Much thanks to the entire team for their invaluable contribution to the art of motorcycling.
06:38 20 Aug 19
You guys rock! I have only good things to say about this course and all of the instructors. Anyone who wants to ride a motorcycle should head your way. Thanks for the amazing experience and keeping us safe on the road. Respect! Stoked!
00:38 24 Jul 19
Absolutely top-tier. Brian and John are knowledgeable, funny, and approachable. Further, they make the class both informative and fun. I only did the classroom component, but it was all good information that was practical and pertinent to every type of rider. The content was filled with things to practice to become a better and safer rider, and more effectively approach the road test. I highly recommend these guys!
17:00 04 Jul 19
awesome experience , flexible schedules and clear instructions given , no need to ask questions on how to do anything ,everything was explained in detail. Instructors are focused on your safety and making sure your never in a dull moment. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS
21:59 18 Jun 19
fantastic course! the experience was fun and educational at the same time. instructors were friendly and knowledgeable. during the parking lot and traffic classes the instructors provided feedback and spent time with each of us individually to ensure we were doing the right things to gain confidence and acquired the skills needed. Thanks! Eddie M.
04:16 11 Jun 19
If you are a new rider I highly recommend this course without reservation. Worth every penny and then some. If I had kids I put them through. If my girlfriend gets an interest I would make her do this course too.Matt, Otto, John and Brian are awesome. Incredible knowledge, experience and humour-looking at you Matt.If you are unsure if you think riding is for you, take this course. This weekend these guys worked with all comfort and experience levels.
15:21 04 Jun 19
Awesome experience, great instructors and had an absolute blast!! I was very experienced with dirt bikes before this but i still learned a ton. I would definitely recommend ProRide to any rider no matter your skill set.
05:31 04 Jun 19
I would strongly recommend ProRIDE to anyone thinking of taking up riding. I was a little nervous going into it, but came out feeling ecstatic about riding and confident in my ability.I actually took ProRIDE's Survival Rider Training course back in 2016, and it was my first ever experience riding a motorcycle. I remember being very pleased with the course and instructors and feeling relatively confident by the end of it.For no reason other than circumstances, I didn't touch another bike again until recently when I was finally able to get a bike of my own, but having only ridden during the one course, and it being such a long time since, I wasn't sure that I would still remember how to. That being said, my concerns quickly disappeared after I sat on the bike and my muscle memory got me going; it was super easy to get back into and felt very natural. This made me even more certain that the decision to learn from ProRIDE was a great one.Thanks again ProRIDE, and I apologise for such a late review!
21:25 21 May 19
I have been riding for over 30 years on and off and steadily for the last 17 years. After purchasing a 900 pound Ultra Limited Harley, I wanted to take a skills refresher course to improve my skills. The 4 hour parking lot course and exercises modeled after the Oregon State police program was excellent along with our main instructor John. At 150.00 per rider for 4 hours of excellent skills training in a large parking lot, this course is definitely more than worth it. At the end of the 4 hours, my hog felt at least 200 pounds lighter and slow speed U turns, right turns, figure 8's are now a breeze. I strongly recommend ProRIDE to any one who currently rides, regardless of how many years you have under your belt.Michael Woytowich.Richmond, BC.
15:22 21 May 19
What an amazing experience at ProRide Motorcycle training . I had the privilege to learn from such experienced professionals, knowledgeable, and skilled instructors. Thank you for your endless effort and hard work teaching us to be a safe riders on the road. I highly recommend PRoRide training to anyone, because they will teach you excellent skills and techniques with utmost care to be an excellent and safe riders out there.Thankyou.

An engaging, informative, welcoming, and hilarious experience - ultimately creating safer and more thoughtful riders. I'm hitting the streets with joy and confidence after training with this team!
13:27 30 Apr 19

Cannot say enough good things about ProRide. From the moment I first called to inquire about their services to the moment that I completed my first road ride, this was a great experience. They are professional, efficient, and make learning to ride a motorcycle fun - even when it's frustrating. I would recommend ProRide to riders at all levels.
22:54 27 Mar 19
I can't say enough great things about this company. I did the survival rider course and honestly the value you get from that package is unbelievably good. I just completed my ICBC road test, and I felt that the knowledge I was prepared with from day one of classes right through to meeting up with Brian at the pre-road test check-up was invaluable. I've been dir biking for a few years, but would still recommend the school to anyone looking to get their MC license, brush up on their skills or even just practice/rent bikes from. WOULD RECOMMEND INSTANTLY.
08:37 27 Mar 19
I had a lot of worries before i started, But from the first day my worries began to disappear, I felt how much experience they had. They had a very solid curriculum, and all the explanations were very simple and easy to understand, and all their demonstrations were gradually exaggerated so that i could see well. They were always kind and kind to us and taught us well with patience.plus i was surprised after pass. I thought, I was fully guaranteed the money I paid, but the traffic class steps were waiting for me. The other day I rode a traffic class with my instructor , and experienced what was a safe and fun ride. the course isn't done yet. I'm happy wait for the next ride. I am especially grateful to John.Thanks again instructor Matt,Brian,Len,Joel,Otto,Erica and John......,
20:18 13 Mar 19
Fantastic group of instructors that really inspire confidence in the students. My class was full and all the students had varying amounts of experience but everyone came away from our course with so much valuable knowledge and skills!
02:32 05 Mar 19
The Survival Rider course was an awesome experience! Thanks PROride!
05:55 04 Mar 19
02:33 20 Feb 19
If you are planning to get your motorcycles license I will forever recommend doing the Survival Training Course with ProRide: Highly knowledgeable instructors who are passionate, safety conscious and extremely supportive! Even if you've never touched a bike before you will leave this course a more confident and safe rider 🙂
01:50 19 Feb 19
I had so much fun! Amazing instructors and great sense of humor. I highly recommend ProRide. It was worth every penny. You won't regret it.
00:15 28 Nov 18
Amazing instructors! I totally recommend. Worth the investment.
19:12 09 Oct 18
Efficient, clear, consistent direction from all instructors? Check. Ample opportunities to ask all the questions you have? Check. Good dose of humour? Check. Do I now have a solid foundation to continue my education and practice to become a safe rider? Double check. Worth the investment? Absolutely. It was an excellent weekend. Thank you!
03:42 16 Sep 18
My experience with PRORIDE has been absolutely fantastic. If you want to learn to ride, come see these guys! They are knowledgeable, patient and very friendly. The PRORIDE instructors know their stuff and teach the foundations of riding and how to be a responsible rider. Take their course, you won’t be disappointed. My motorcycling journey has been a long and difficult one but Brian, John, Otto and Matt (and everyone else there) have been so supportive and encouraging I’d give them 6 stars if I could! They go above and beyond to make sure all their students are equipped with the right tools to ride safely. I can’t say enough good things about them.I’ve also taken their motorcycle skills upgrade course and I HIGHLY recommend it for riders of all experiences. The course was challenging and at times uncomfortable but I definitely came out of it a better rider.Thank you guys so much! I really couldn’t have done this without you.
20:46 13 Sep 18
Fun, informative and takes the scare out of the process. Having these guys show up on test day is fantastic. Having a pre-test road test; bang on! They have a great selections of bikes, great instructors (John seems to have the edge on the rest) and flexible scheduling. This has to be the best in the west.
01:25 31 Aug 18
These guys are awesome. I went from having never ridden a motorcycle to passing my skills test & riding in traffic after one course. Is recommend these guys to anyone!
21:15 13 Aug 18
Great experience and worth every penny. Everyone at ProRide was super friendly and professional. The course was very engaging with a strong emphasis on training safe riders and preparing you for the road. Really can't say enough good things about them. Greatly exceeded my expectations of what the course would provide.
18:03 17 Jul 18
Best money you will ever spend - fantastic value for the $$.I had such a good experience with Pro Ride. I had started up riding after an 8 year absence and dropped my bike with a couple of broken bones. I decided to redo my training right from scratch and I feel so good about my decision. I now think my fall was the best thing that could have happened.The class had an excellent review of the basic principles of safe riding - lane position & changes, signs, merging, correct gear to wear, highest potential for accidents etc. - and then was followed by two rigorous days in the parking lot at the beautiful North Vancouver Campus of Capilano University. We sweated (July, 30 degrees) in full gear, but learned a ton and I felt my confidence returning as I began re-mastering slow speed riding, where the majority of drops/falls etc. can happen.We also were able to try different bikes, and I tried them all: Honda Grom, Yamaha dirt bike, Honda Rebel 250, Harley Davidson 500. I realized that I had no business riding my new-to-me-bike anywhere but a parking lot until I learned its idiosyncracies of clutch, throttle and brakes. Every bike I tried at Pro Ride was different, including within the type: 3 Groms, 3 Harleys, 5 or 6 Yamahas and a couple of Rebels. Each was entirely unique for ride - a big learning lesson!I repassed my skills test, which is satisfying at age 55, and got to go on the traffic ride on a heavy 250 Suzuki that was top heavy... just like my bike. And surprise surprise, it was all fine! I did the u-turns without difficulty.The absolute best thing about Pro Ride though is the personalities and expertise of the instructors. Learning to sing 80s songs while mastering complex manouvers was brilliant and hilarious, and Matt and Otto made the parking lot days so much fun I was sorry when it was over. Brian is also extremely funny, and strict, a good counterpoint; and John has a lot of experience on dual sport and off-road riding - being able to pick their brains about bikes and rides was a bonus.It's so affordable! If you're looking to get your license it is the best money you will ever spend - you get a practice test, an extra traffic ride, as a graduate you can rent their bikes by the day to practice on, and use one of their bikes to take your ICBC road test. You also get some gear and new bike purchase discounts. It's really an amazing program.Everyone in our class (16) passed. Pretty great track record. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
12:17 17 Jul 18
The folks at ProRide know their stuff. The course was a perfect combination of instruction and practice. The instructors clearly enjoy what they do, and it shows. I would not hesitate for a second to do another one of their classes, and would highly reccomend them to anyone. 👍👍
12:09 17 Jul 18
18:10 12 Jun 18
If you're thinking of taking a course with ProRide - DO IT! Amazing instructors, invaluable lessons, and knowledge I'll take with me for life. They somehow manage to make you feel both comfortable and challenged, and are supportive the whole way through. I had an absolute blast, thanks guys!
21:57 11 Jun 18
Best school hands down! All the teachers are informative and very patient. I would recommend this course to all my friends who wanna stay safe out there. Amazing school and amazing peeps! Thanks ProRide!!!
21:49 11 Jun 18
ProRide is an amazingly involved course which takes you through all of the steps to help you feel comfortable on a motorcycle as well as continuously challenging your skill level to make you a better rider. The instructors are all very welcoming, animated, and hilarious in a way that makes the course way too much fun and they go out of their way to support you through your entire motorcycle experience from start to finish. Would 100% recommend this course for anyone looking to learn to ride or even want to become a better rider.
06:10 01 Jun 18
Great experience. It was fun and I learned many safety skills. A absolute must for learning to ride a motorcycle. Very knowledgeable and friendly instructors. You will learning what you need to get your motorcycle license.
01:22 23 May 18
Great experience over all! The instructors were very informative and made the course a lot of fun! It's designed to prepare you from the first time you sit on the bike until you pass your road test. Worth every penny!!
01:24 11 May 18
Great atmosphere! Great people! Great time!ProRide, you’re awesome!
20:39 08 May 18
Exceptional people and program. I would highly recommend.
01:34 04 Apr 18
These guys are great... really! When I was signing up, I was a bit hesitant since the price seemed a bit too high, but when you go to the first class, you know what you are paying for. Amazing staff who take the time and make sure you understand every detail. They make sure you are ready for riding when you leave the class. Highly recommended. Patrick, Matt and Otto were great instructors. Thank you
21:45 27 Mar 18
I could not have asked for a better way to learn to ride a motorcycle. This is a highly experienced team of professional riders that are happy to share their tips with you. A great value for the money.
04:32 19 Mar 18
This is the most amazing motorcycle school ever. This is my first time going to this school and I knew nothing about how to ride one and these guys taught me everything! They have nice support and enjoy doing what they love
06:46 23 Nov 17
Great experience all around. Lots of hours in the parking lot to hone skills, plus great preparation for the road test with the pre-test simulation and day of support. The entire staff is knowledgeable, experienced and passionate about riding.
19:51 01 Nov 17
This is hands down the best school for riders! the staff are amazing and fun to work with and they really care! 👍
17:57 20 Sep 17
As former rider in my 20's and 30's it was time to get back into riding again. The instructors at ProRide are fantastic, energetic and love what they do. The roads, traffic and drivers in Vancouver have changed.Taken this course has not only brought back my skills in riding a motorcycle, but also my awareness of traffic and drivers around me using the survival skills taught in this program. I would highly recommend anyone who is new to riding or wants to get back into riding to take this course.
15:34 19 Sep 17
If there was a sixth star I would have given it to ProRide. All the instructors are straight out of the top shelf. Knowledgeable, engaging, and committed to what they do. As a student, you get tons of knowledge on motorbikes, techniques on how to ride, practical training, and how to be safe on the road. Don't ride a motorcycle without taking this course, seriously.
22:19 30 Aug 17
18:13 16 Aug 17
Very knowledgeable instructors and the environment is safe and fun that promotes learning easily. I would recommend ProRide Motorcycle Training to all my friends wanting to learn to ride safely.
02:14 21 Jul 17
Amazing teachers and lessons. The skills will be with me for life and make me feel secure when riding. I couldn't imagine riding a motorcycle without taking the course. Instructors are fun but also serious. Its been less than two weeks since I graduated and I have already rode 1000 km
18:10 19 Jul 17
Really happy I took this course. A lot of useful information and strategies, and all the instructors (John, Bryan, Matt, Marcel, Otto) were patient, entertaining, and very knowledgeable. They offer different bikes to suit your needs, and opportunity to obtain theoretical, parking lot, and street traffic experience in a compact course.Definitely recommend if you're starting out or just refreshing your skills.
01:53 18 Jul 17
ProRide Team -> 110% awesome!ProRide instructors are very knowledgeable and experienced. They possess hi level skill set as a motorcycle riders, and definitely know how to share this knowledge with the class. Very, very patient, fantastic and fun people they are. 🙂
05:10 03 Jul 17
Safe, comfortable environment to learn for beginners. Highly recommend this motorcycle school. Dr. Shahram Fasihy
00:24 24 Jun 17
Great instructors and great experience!!!!
03:37 22 Jun 17
Two months ago, I didn't even know what a clutch is. Now, I am fully licensed motorcycle rider. Thanks PRO RIDE.
07:34 21 Jun 17
The instructors were top notch and made every effort to provide a first rate experience, while keeping it light and fun for everyone.As someone who has some riding experience (from back in the day), I can honestly say that this course is not only a great refresher, but really should be an absolute must for all riders as it's small price to pay for some important tips that could one day save your life. Thanks!!
04:45 19 Jun 17
07:09 14 Jun 17
The team at ProRide are top notch riding experts who teach a balance of riding skills and safety strategies. I was an experienced rider but its been a while since I have been on a bike; over 10 years. I had thought I could get back in the saddle with a rental but a friend recommended ProRide for a refresh. After the refresher program I realized there were some gaps and that I had developed a couple of subtle bad habits. Not only does the saying "you can always improve" ring true, most importantly I learned new safe riding strategies that could be life saving and provide additional confidence for me and my family.
07:16 13 Jun 17
Great School! The instructors are very knowledgable and keep things interesting in the classroom. In the parking lot they take you step by step through the fundamentals of riding a bike, but most importantly they teach positioning and awareness on the road. It's also a affordable and easy place to rent from once the course is completed!

Well executed training program. John, Matt, Patrick, and Brian were exceptional - they really break down the concepts step-by-step and ensure each student is prepared and confident on the road. Keep up the great work team! Thanks,
19:11 07 May 17
Highest possible recommendation for ProRide. I had never sat on a motorcycle before taking their program. I now have my license and a motorcycle and the confidence to ride it SAFELY . Tremendous support all the way, friendly and fun. From a more senior graduate, Thank you Brian, John, Matt, Marcel. Otto, Patrick ....... everyone on the ProRide Team!
22:50 27 Apr 17
Thanks for helping me to get my class 6 license in a very shot period of time I had before my learners license expire. Kudo's to bryan and team for the amazing program. You guys are awesome.
21:45 27 Apr 17
The guys are Proride are truly passionate folks who put "safety" in to FUN. The fundamentals I learned about riding and most importantly safe ridding can't have any monetary value added to it. They were entertaining, insightful, patient and genuine about not just passing a test but riding smart! Thanks guys and I will reference you anytime to anyone looking to ride or just refresh old skills. Looking forward to catching up with the team and other prorider's in the summer.
14:33 06 Apr 17
It's been 3 years since I took the course. That should be enough of a testimonial. I'm still here. I rode dirt bikes a lot and drove cars for years. Wasn't sure I needed a course. Holy crap I learned so much. Instructors really care and make the training fun too. The training saved my life at least in a dozen scenarios so far. Especially looking where u want to go, not the ditch I was on gravel sliding towards.
08:52 09 Mar 17
Before I started the Proride course I was a bit hesitated about money to spend for that. However, after completion the course I would say that it worth every single penny. The guys are not just good, the most important that they do care about you and are interested in your success. Also they taught a lot of things that maybe eventually would let you survive in tough road situations. One month later after their course I passed ICBC road test with the first attempt, and the examiner's feedback was - You did a great job, man! So, I do advise to invest you time and money - in really worth it. Btw, not to forget - it also was a real fun ))

19:38 27 Feb 17
Excellent course, excellent instructors, I've learned so much. Thanks!!
16:21 20 Feb 17
Great people running this place. Very helpful and understanding. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn how to ride.
16:03 08 Jan 17
The instructors were thorough and fun. Not a moment wasted. Their training is a necessity for safe riding. I've driven a car without accident for over 20 years, so I think I'm a good driver, but I learnt a ton from these guys about how to move on the street. Can't recommend them highly enough!
16:31 02 Nov 16
Wow - that's all I can say.I have never sat on a motorcycle in my life and wanted to get into it since my wife rides. She was devastated to hear that in BC, it is not mandatory to take a course before your exam, and advised that I needed to take one. I remember seeing the ProRide group ride up and down my friend's street in their vests night after night, so I looked them up. All of the reviews were like mine, so I figured I would give it a shot. 100 people saying the same thing couldn't be wrong. I signed up for the course and showed up. From this point forward, I was blown away.Not only was I so appreciative of everything I was taught, but it was so awesome to have so many instructors, all with their own personalities. Each of them was patient, positive and downright hilarious. When I started the parking lot day, I figured there was no way I'd ever grasp all this, and 4 days later I was on the highway!I can't thank ProRide enough for teaching me the essentials, as well as the life saving skills that ALL motorcyclists should know. Another bonus was being able to try out a ton of different bike styles to see what I liked.Thanks again, ProRide - see you out there!
16:41 13 Oct 16
Just finished the 6 day Survival Rider Program - was amazing from start to finish. Huge thank you to all the instructors - John, Matt, Otto, Brian and Marcel for giving me the confidence I needed to pass the skills test and get out on the road and the foundation of skills to start my new motorcycling life the right way. Highly recommended!
15:53 14 Sep 16
This course was incredibly amazing and awesome that words can't describe the feelings that I had! Thank you to all the instructors you guys rock! I recommend anyone who wants to start riding to take this course.
05:04 04 Jul 16
Great place to get trained. I went in to this course with no riding experience and now I feel like I'm ready to buy a bike and head out on my own. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this place to get your motorcycle training.
19:48 02 Jul 16
Very thorough and detailed instruction, they work very hard to make sure you know what to expect in both real life riding scenarios and the ICBC Road Test. Also, very good value when you consider the amount of time they dedicate to you and the variety of bikes that you can try out during the riding sessions. Highly recommend.
19:59 24 Jun 16
If you are considering taking up motorcycle riding then I highly recommend Pro Rides Survival Rider Training course. All the instructors are awesome and very professional. The course teaches you everything you need to know and gets you riding the right way. I was able to pass the ICBC exam on my first attempt and more importantly you learn defensive riding techniques to keep you safe every time you get on a motorcycle.
20:29 20 Jun 16
I recently moved to BC from ON and needed to start the entire license process from scratch here. I have taken an equivalent course to Pro Rides Survival Rider course in Toronto and I cannot tell you how much better Pro Rides was. The teachers were awesome in every way. The course was very flexible around my tough schedule and I felt that it prepared me properly for the tests. It really was a very positive experience. You wont beat it.
17:48 15 Jun 16
This is one of the best courses to learn how to ride a motorcycle for anyone that wants to learn how to ride a motorcycle.I had no experience riding a motorcycle when I came into this class.I had the pleasure of meeting John, Brian, Matt, Hilton and Marcel.They were all a blast to learn from. They always made sure that you were confidence in everything you had to do.If your wanting to learn or even brush up on your skills because you haven't been on a bike for a long time this is the place to be. This is a great place to also meet great people. Made some good friends and they always have old graduates come back to say hi. That must mean something.
23:39 06 Jun 16
If you're brand new to motorcycles, you'd be a fool to not consider taking the Survival Riding course. The guys are extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Even after I had finished the program, Brian had still provided support with an ICBC licensing issue I had - something he had absolutely no obligation to do.Kudos to the ProRide guys. Thanks to them, I went from no experience whatsoever on a motorcycle, to full license in about 6 weeks (Yep, passed the ICBC road test on the first try). Now I'm riding my dream bike and still consciously using the defensive techniques they teach. Thanks guys!
05:49 06 Jun 16
Fantastic course to train new riders....even has improved my skills as a driver overall. Also had to use the alumni services, which were excellent. Great company to deal with - will refer every chance I get.
21:56 02 Jun 16
Proride staff teaches riders how to be safe. They do not teach how to “pass” the exam, however if one applies the principles taught in class the exam is no issue. The course starts at a fundamental level and progressively builds upon each lesson. The class bikes are great to learn with, school location is fantastic, road rides are awesome; simply put Pro Ride rocks! Five stars!
03:21 02 Jun 16
05:59 01 Jun 16
Far exceeded my expectations, lots taught here that isnt covered in other motorcycle schools. John and Matt did a great job! Highly recommended.
06:13 30 May 16
I thought I knew how to ride a motorcycle before taking the survival rider course. Sure, I knew how to stop, go, and turn. But I learned so much in the classroom and the parking lot stage (lane position, emergency braking, maneuvers, parking, and the list goes on) that I definitely recommend this to any rider. Whether it be someone who is just learning to ride or has been riding for years. There is so much to take from it as well as great instructors for each portion. No, seriously. Great instructors!
20:21 20 May 16
05:05 09 May 16
Very professional and thorough - an approachable teaching staff and comprehensive program that covers everything you kneed to know to ride safe and aware.
19:37 05 May 16
The Pro Ride Team was awesome! Your life is worth the investment of the skills you keep forever. After one week of finishing the course I was fully licensed and riding solo!
17:58 04 May 16
After spending a considerable amount of time researching motorcycle training schools I decided on ProRide. I had high expectations and all of them were exceeded and the course provides great value for the money, well worth it.The instructors were extremely knowledgable and cared about your own experience as a student and a rider. I liked the progressive way the info/skills were delivered so I felt more and more confident on the bike as the days progressed.I highly recommend them and will continue to go on group rides with these hooligans 🙂
16:59 02 May 16
02:07 23 Apr 16
I would recommend anyone who is interested in learning how to become a safe rider and have a fun time while doing it to sign up with pro ride!! They will go above and beyond to make u a good rider and to help u understand things that u may be having trouble with .... 👍👍two thumbs way up .... Just got my full license April 21/16 and I have pro ride to thank for that ... What are you waiting for ? Give matt or Brian a call and get signed up !
08:36 18 Apr 16
Ok, this five star rating is conditional on whether I get my license or not... seriously Brian I love the 80s but not the way you do buddy. Matt keepin us crackin with the movie quotes delivered in perfect comedic deadpan drill sarge fashion. LOL! You guys are all awesome and I'm sure what I learned will save my life someday. This course is brilliant – you have to take it. Don't forget to join the alumni group on FB after you have finished it!
21:04 16 Apr 16
Haven't been on a motorbike for 40 years, these guys equipped, trained and prepared us and got us competent (subject to more riding) in just 6 easy lessons. Great focus on safety, doing it right, and enjoying yourself.Head up eyes up, thanks John!
05:11 09 Apr 16
The Survival Rider Course was great!Absolutely love it, the classroom sessions, the parking lot training and the amazing evening road rides. All amazing.The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and tonnes of fun.
00:38 09 Apr 16
Can't praise ProRide guys highly enough. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and super friendly. They will provide you with the knowledge and strategies to make you a better and safer rider. I took the course with zero riding experience and passed the road test within a month. They've been there every step of the way with their support and invaluable advice. Thanks everyone for a great learning experience!
13:43 30 Mar 16
The survival rider course was excellent! The tips and lessons provided by the instructors were very helpful and made a first time rider like myself feel comfortable on a bike right from the start. John, Brian, Matt, Otto, Matt P. and Marcel all made the experience very enjoyable, informative and memorable.
05:38 24 Mar 16
While I've had a class 5/6 since I was 16 and ridden many years/miles/bikes, I have not ridden a bike in about 25 years. I just completed the Survival Rider class and I'm really glad that I did. I met some very nice people, received top notch instruction/practise and feel a lot more confident as I start riding again. Highly recommended.
15:34 21 Mar 16
Take this course if you want to ride a motorcycle. Even if you're already riding and haven't taken it. This course is a must. There is so much more to riding than you think, these guys will give you what you need to stay alive out there.The team of instructors are GREAT. Very engaging, relaxed and friendly. I would recommend Proride to anyone who is thinking about taking a course.
15:38 09 Mar 16
ProRide provides a very well structures and well taught course. I had not been on a motorcycle for many years and by the end of the course I was comfortably on the highway. The course takes students through each step of the learning process - it is challenging but the instructors are very supportive. If you want to learn to ride you should take this course.
17:36 07 Mar 16
Perfect for people who want to learn to ride a motorcycle! Students get constant help and feedback while learning to ride, which makes the learning process much easier and more enjoyable. Proride teaches you how to ride, and how to take on a risky activity in the safest ways possible. Would highly recommend the course.
22:58 24 Feb 16
Pro-Ride is a great school for learning the skills that may save your life! The mechanics course is also a very in-depth course, that is well worth the money. Highly recommend to anyone starting out on a motorcycle or want a refresher on their skills!
19:07 24 Feb 16
I'm 60 and ready to get rolling again after a long time on just 4 wheels. This training provided everything I needed and WAY MORE. Everyone is highly competent, super friendly, and skilled at helping each person regardless of their learning style or limitations. They go the extra mile for people having difficulties, and also recognize your developed skills and help you build them even further. This is NOT A "CANNED" program although the content is basically the same each time, the difference is in how they work with each individual and their limitations or existing skills. They have been doing this for about 17 years and the value added from this experience is noticeable!
23:50 16 Nov 15
The experience of learning to ride a motorcycle with Brian and Matt was not just comprehensive, well-paced and safe. ProRide really does make you feel at ease while learning. They teach you to embrace rather than fear the dangers of riding, how to avoid various hazards and ultimately enjoy the unique experience of being on two wheels. Highly recommended!
01:43 06 Nov 15
If you've never been on a bike before, the parking lot exercises will frustrate you but you'll learn the basics you need to get out on the road. The stuff you learn in the classroom is 100% necessary for passing your road test AND making you a safe rider. Also, the road rides are great for building confidence in a safe setting. These guys teach great skills and give you the necessary knowledge to get your full license if you're committed to practicing what they teach.The skills I learned with this course allowed me to pass my road test in the first shot.
03:27 26 Oct 15
Highly recommended! Brian and Matt are great instructors. You won't believe how much you've learned and mastered by the time you go on the road rides!
19:51 10 Oct 15
ProRide should be your first choice if looking for a motorcycle training school. I completed my course a couple of weeks ago and highly recommend ProRide. Brian, Matt and Otto are awesome. They very professional and knowledgeable and taught me how to ride a motorcyle in a relaxed and fun enviroment. Don't look any further than ProRide for a motorcycle training school!
06:01 04 Oct 15
If you're looking to get your bike license, this is where you need to go. The instructors make it really fun while at the same time driving home the points that will keep you safe on the road. Also, the skill test is included, which allows you to practice on your own before you go take your road test. Bikes are provided for the course but they also rent out bikes for practice if you don't own your own. Not only that, they provide a bike for you to do your road test and also schedule a practice ride before the exam. I'm genuinely surprised that they don't charge more for this course. An excellent experience from beginning to end!
14:58 30 Sep 15
excellent training program. i feel confident now that i will pass icbc road test the first time. thanks brian, matt and otto. ps. the squirt gun works.
01:26 29 Sep 15
Instructors of ProRide will show and teach you how to do it AND what not to do to stay safe. ProRide Motorcycle Training are definitely professionals. Lots of information packed in the 6 days. Instructors keep it fun and are motivated to keep the students riding. If anybody tells you that you can learn everything and anything on "youtube"... it's a lie. Thanks ProRide.
21:46 27 Sep 15
Really enjoyed the course so far. Brian's instruction was great with cameos from Matt. Focus on safety but with humour and patience.Looking forward to the road rides tomorrow 😊 Highly recommend Proride. I'd never ridden a bike before but passed the skills test first time due to the excellent preparation provided in the parking lot training.
23:32 24 Sep 15
Great school. Highly recommend it. Brian was great in the classroom and on the pavement, always keeping things light and funny. Matt and Jenn also were great and contributed a lot to the program. Nice selection of bikes.
02:51 23 Sep 15
So glad I took the ProRide course. It was invaluable. The content, the practical experience and the instructors are fantastic!
05:35 22 Sep 15
14:41 11 Sep 15
Matt, Brian, Jenn and others at ProRide - thank you! Your training was excellent in every way. It was a group course so I learned a lot by participating with the group, watching others and hearing feedback, but I also received plenty of one-on-one instruction that was catered to my shortcomings. Your course provided all of the knowledge and practical application for me to comfortably and confidently practice on my own. I now feel solid with my skills and just need to worry about everything else that's out there to get me! Today, thanks to you, I received my Class 6 licence. Thanks again. Happy riding!
06:21 11 Sep 15
Great course for beginners. The staff will take you through everything step by step. Matt & Brian are hilarious and make the whole thing fun. Otto is a great instructor that will improve your riding skills. I highly recommend ProRide! ... and you will too 😉
08:35 07 Sep 15
Pro ride was an awesome experience learning to ride. Brian and Matt we're great teachers, really hammered in the basics but kept it engaging with their antics. I'll definitely be going back for the bike maintenance course.
00:03 02 Sep 15
Originally I chose ProRide because there was no other alternative to acquire my MSA certificate. I didn't regret my choice and after two days on the parking lot with Matt, Otto and Raymond I was ready to ride on the road. On our final day we rode out to Horseshoe bay through the low road and back via the highway in the pouring rain. I had a great time with ProRide and even got comfortable on a 500cc sportbike by the end of the course. I look forward to riding with you again and I'll be sure to recommend the course to my friends!Cheers,Peter

Thank you again Matt, Brian, Otto, Jason and Marcel again for the awesome course. Initially I was a little nervous and anxious about riding a motorcycle but those concerns were relatively quickly alleviated by the staff. In 6 days you were able to instill me the philosophy, tactics and strategies how to be a safe rider. I passed the skills test with Brian, Matt and Otto's feedback. The road ride was great, I never thought that I would ever be able to ride 90 km\hr on highway before the course. From the classroom to the parking lot and finally to the rode rides the teaching was progressive and layered so that each skill was related to the next and built upon. The skills were broken down and the emphasis on fundamentals and safety was exemplary. I Also, I found the practical components were very well monitored and supervised as there were enough instructors to ensure feedback was immediate and effective. The consistent message and teaching points from each instructor were very clear and it was very evident that all instructors were very knowledgeable in each area of riding. Beyond the level of professionalism, all the instructors stayed focused but yet kept the mood light, fun and used humor to relax myself and the other students. I will definitely be recommending Pro Ride to my friends and others. Once again, thank-you for emphasizing the safety portion of riding, I will not forget it. Thanx again, guys you were great. I will remember and continue to practice the techniques I was taught.
07:04 22 Aug 15
Amazing staff! I didnt know what to expect but by the end of the course I was comfortable riding on my own. Highly recommended!
21:55 21 Aug 15
Just passed the road test today!I took the course two years back with Brian, Jen and Matt as instructors. The instructors make the course what it is: truly awesome! I learned so many things and when I talk about it with experienced riders (even 20+ years experience), they still often say "wow, I never knew that!" - another point to make is that ProRide taught me how to ride in packs...most riders never get this training.The practice riding was excellent and they fully prepared me for my skills and road test, both of which I passed with flying colours because of their training and instruction. They also provided me with the bike to use for the road test which is a huge bonus because I didn't have one!Thanks guys! Keep it up! You're who I recommend to anyone wanting to ride.Tip to new riders:Do the course, pay attention, have confidence and most of all have fun. These guys will get you to the end without a doubt.
16:33 21 Aug 15
The instructors are excellent. A balanced mix of serious skills and knowledge combined with humor and an easy going relaxed environment and patience in which to learn how to safely ride. I enrolled in there course starting on the 6th of August and was told the earliest I could get in to do my road test through ICBC would be late October due to limited road test space at ICBC. I was asked if I would liked to be notified if there was any cancellations I maybe able to get in earlier, sure! So two weeks after starting the course I passed my road test. There is no way I would have felt comfortable or even though possible that in a couple weeks I would go from thinking about riding to being confident, have my own bike and a full license. Special thanks to Matt, Brian, Marcel and Matthew.
02:54 18 Aug 15
I'll first start by saying as a petite female, I was quite nervous about learning to ride a motorcycle. That changed pretty quick once I met everyone at Proride!! Brian is hilarious, full of energy and made the theory portion of proride a ton of fun! There was never a dull moment learning in the parking lot with Brian and Matt. You guys rock and thank you for making me feel sooo comfortable despite all my swearing! Haha. Matthew and Marcel were the instructors on the road rides and their calm approach and laid back personalities were very reassuring. I would highly recommend Proride to anyone looking to learn to ride or riders that want a refresher. It was an amazing experience!
00:52 17 Aug 15
Absolutely fantastic instructors and overall experience. Came highly recommended from multiple friends, and so glad I took the course. The instructors are highly attentive to the nuances of group classes, and gave each rider in my class a great deal of focused feedback to improve all of our abilities. Felt very secure and safe on the group rides, and loved all of our crew!!
05:10 15 Aug 15
I have just finished the course at Pro-Ride, and have nothing but great things to say. Brian gave informative, interesting classroom instruction laced with lots of humor. There were many points and ideas I hadn't even considered.The parking lot riding/testing with Brian and Matt was also extremely valuable, humorous and professional. Safety is the number one concern with these folks and it shows. I went from having never sat on a bike to riding confidently. I passed my Skills Test in the lot!The road rides on Mon/Tue with Marcel and Matthew were also fantastic. There are so many safety pointers and critiques they give you on your riding.I will be telling all my friends that are interested in getting a bike to enroll with Pro-Ride. If you want to survive out there...Pro-Ride will help.Thanks guys....keep it up!PS: I will be buying a bike next week!!!
17:03 13 Aug 15
The best in Vancouver, no other word! It taught me everything I need to know about riding, and now I'm having so much fun! Thanks ProRide!
20:23 08 Aug 15
I took the Pro Ride course with a friend in June 2015 after deciding to finally get my motorcycle licence. We both had a great time with the other people in the class. I bought a bike shortly after taking the course and I passed my ICBC road test this week. I have put almost 2000km on my bike already.The instruction from Brian, Matt and Jen was always professional and hugely informative, and a lot of fun. The classroom instruction was full of valuable tips for anticipating possible dangers and riding safely. The parking lot practice and road rides were gradual and ideal for riders of all levels.The ProRide team were very helpful at all stages- including the practice road test, and they even come to assist you with advice during your ICBC Road Test. I give them my highest recommendation.If you are considering getting your motorcycle license- give them a call. THEY TRULY CREATE SURVIVAL RIDERS.
17:47 05 Aug 15
I took the course originally in 2011 and after a few years of not riding, wanted to do a refresher course this year to just get a bit of confidence back. They had many options for me and I opted for the weekend parking lot skills portion. Every time I have taken this course it translates to me being a better rider and (car) driver. The staff is super supportive, patient and knowledgeable and I wish the course was longer just to interact with them! They really identify where any weaknesses may be and make sure that you overcome them. I highly recommend to all my friends to get their motorcycle training done here as I know that they are fun and fantastic at creating survival riders and when you leave Proride, you know that you will be well-equiped to handle the roads.
00:48 04 Aug 15
Yes, the name says it all... giving us newbies the essential lessons in understanding BEFORE we need it... rather than LEARNING LATER after a mistake.The entire course is detailed, and the urgency in the lessons... urgency since we are dealing with life and (the outcome of a mistake)... is so relevant.IMO you cannot learn from a friend. Learn from those that see so many of us new riders that they can see the issues at first glance. Keep your friend your friend. Thanks ProRide!
21:25 30 Jul 15
The team at proride will give you what you need to be a confident and safe rider. Every member of their team has something unique to offer and make learning how to ride really fun!
18:43 23 Jul 15
I can't say enough positive things a bout the ProRide course and all of the instructors. The training was thorough and so helpful, and the instructors were amazing. They were patient, clear, encouraging, and great teachers...and they made it fun! I am so glad I took the course and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you!
21:55 16 Jul 15
Well worth the investment. I just passed my final road test - wouldn't have happened without Proride! Course is well organized and sets you up with everything you need to pass. All around well done & I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get their license.
21:56 15 Jul 15
15:09 15 Jul 15
I can't recommend these guys highly enough. Matt, Brian, Jen, Otto and Marcel - all were incredibly helpful and super knowledgable. They give you so much info on what to do/not to do, provide tons of practice time, build your confidence and give you constant feedback on how you are doing. It was a great week, made some new friends, learned a ton. If you are a learning to ride or just want a refresher, use these guys.
12:35 15 Jul 15
Worth every penny. ProRide staff are very skilled and I very much enjoyed my training time with them. Great people and great atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone who is looking into getting into motorcycling and doing it the right way!
23:17 12 Jul 15
Great course and the instructors were awesome. I highly recommend PRORIDE to new or experienced riders.
22:52 12 Jul 15
I had a fantastic experience with the Pro Ride team and consider their course to be money very well spent! I really do feel remarkably equipped now as a Survival Rider!.Brian's classroom sessions are packed with crucial information and delivered in a way that makes four hours pass like just one. On Skills Test day Brian provided the perfect balance between discipline and friendly support. Day One on the lot, Jen's approach to instruction and coaching was great for building our skills and confidence; she was fantastic at accurately pointing out what each of us need to work on. On the road rides she was a star, inspiring confidence, steadiness and ease. The follow-up support of a refresher/pre-test ride and a cheerleading presence on test day were invaluable. Highly, HIGHLY recommended!!!
16:46 11 Jul 15
Proride provides an excellent learning experience; the instructors are patient, well-suited to coaching and thorough.
03:55 11 Jul 15
My husband and I were both super happy with the training we received at pro ride! The instructors were super patient with me (I didn't take to riding as fast as others in class) and really helped me gain confidence and learn some safe riding skills. We both passed our road test easily and continue to refer our friends to pro ride. Don't hesitate and sign up to learn with them, you won't regret it!
20:14 10 Jul 15
I'm a graduate of this very well setup and informative safety course. The instructors are very knowledgable and with that combined with their extensive experience, it makes for a great learning environment. This course saved me in 2 emergency situations last season while riding, and thanks to the training I received, I knew exactly what to do in the heat of the moment, keeping me upright, safe and whole to ride another day 🙂 and ride I do, rain, snow or shine! A BIG Thank You to Brian, Matt and Jen for their endless hard work and dedication to ensuring every graduate rider is prepared, confident and responsible for riding in todays' environments! I definitely recommend this course to everyone interested in learning to ride! 5 Stars!!!
18:28 10 Jul 15
I passed my road test yesterday at the Burnaby ICBC. Thanks so much to Brian, Jen and the rest of the instructors who made the ProRide training so fun and intense. Two classroom days, two days in the Capilano parking lot trying out so many manoeuvers, passing the MST, and then two super-fun road ride days around the neighbourhood and out to Horseshoe Bay. Had a wonderful learning experience. Can't recommend them highly enough.
00:56 09 Jul 15
So fortunate to have trained with ProRide! Brian is a natural instructor, passionate about bikes and rider safety, he beautifully passed on his knowledge and kept me entertained at the same time, making the on slot of information manageable.Jen is fantastic! Her laid back approach is calming and reassuring. She was my road instructor and her ability to clearly communicate while on the road put me at ease and her skills were impressive.Thanks ProRide for a great experience, I'm practicing the techniques and skills daily.
21:35 22 Jun 15
I had to learn the "introductory" lesson like 7 times, and each time, Brian was sooooo patient and sweet!! The entire team, Matt, Brian, Jenn, they are all rock stars!!! I miss them actually!

Great program with excellent quality instruction and support all the way through from the riding theory in the classroom to learning to handle a bike and preparing for the road test.
13:24 28 May 15
How much will it cost please?
01:02 16 May 15
Took the course in May 2015 ..Very helpful and knowledgeable trainers. It was an awesome experience full of fun. The techniques and tips can really help even experienced riders. If you are in Vancouver and looking to learn motorcycle riding....pro ride is the best there is....highly recommended! Believe me you will have loads of fun. Brian, Jen, Matt all are great. Must do course!
02:52 07 May 15
Having taken a motorcycle course before, this was by far the best. Great classroom experience, 2 days of slow speed life saving skills in a parking lot, and then 2 days of actual road riding.Invaluable training to gain confidence and survival skills. I highly recommend ProRide

I took the course in April 2015 and being a new rider it met and exceeded all my expectations. Worth every penny. Instructors are great, all of them. Matt (both Matt's), Jen, Brian, Marcel, they all have their own style, all great.The course is really intensive. Two 4 hour classes of theory made as fun as they can be by Brian, with tons of great content that can save your life down the road (literally down the road). Parking lot days are also intensive and demanding in a very good way. Instructors emphasize a lot on good technique and not developing bad habits, again, life saving skills.Finally, the rides on the two final days in traffic, really helpful, lots of good guidance, and plenty of time to start feeling comfortable on the bike around traffic. I'm very happy of having spent the money and I feel way more confident now to go and get my motorcycle to enjoy BC roads.If you're considering it, don't hesitate anymore, go take this course.
20:22 25 Oct 14
These guys and girl are awesome. Great customer service, personable and professional. I aced my final road test and I thank them for it. Taught me good habits from the start that stick with you. I cant imagine going for a mb license without taking this course first. Stef

I just finished the course and had an absolute blast doing it. The instructors are all very knowledgeable and super friendly. No question is left unanswered, and their demos are all really well done. Being able to get on a bike and ride around with an instructor helping you out was invaluable, and the road rides you get to do at the end of the course really sealed the deal. If you're thinking about getting your motorcycle license I cannot recommend these guys enough. You will not regret it, and you'll be better off for it.
00:16 26 Apr 14
I just rode out of ICBC with my motorcycle licence! I highly recommend anyone going through the process to let ProRide guide you through it. I received _true_ instruction in the class, in the parking lot and on the road. They were able to answer all my questions, put me at ease on the motorbike, offer their wealth of knowledge and train me to ride at a higher standard than what ICBC expects. Purely worth it.
Top notch group of proffesionals who truly are there to support each student. This training was fantastic and it was a fun learning environment. All the instructors are seasoned pros, and great at what they do.Each of them bring some serious sense of humour to the course as well. So there was a lot of learning and some good laughs as well. A good friend of mine recommended ProRide to me and I'm thankful he did. The real beauty of this is that once you graduate its not over. You are a ProRide alumni member for life and have the opprtunity to participate in advanced courses. Or maybe you dont ride for a long time and need a brush up. ProRide is there for you. I'm only giving a 5 star rating because a 25 star rating (which they really deserve) wasnt an option. Thanks to all the ProRide staff you have been great!!!

I will never forget my time with the team! So informative, extremely fun, and made some new friends. I only recommend ProRIDE to anyone. Brian, Joel, Matt, Ryan, Marty, and the rest of the team are the best of the best...Seriously. God Bless, guys. I had an unforgettable time. I loved every moment...

The survival rider training program was amazing, educative but more importantly fun and unforgettable. The instructors were kind, funny, patient and helped us individually. Thank you Joel, Brian, John, Matt (funny guy). Without a doubt I recommend this course and the above mentioned instructors. It was an amazing experience.
22:03 17 Sep 20
What a journey. They teach the art of safe riding in a fun, supportive atmosphere. Riding in beautiful North Vancouver near the water and mountain views is a bonus!! The resources and support available to students made all the difference in my riding confidence and a successful road test. I look forward to becoming a better motorist with their advanced classes.
22:32 15 Sep 20
The ProRide Motorcycle Training program is great for beginners who need the basics and and also experienced riders who want to weed out bad habits or refresh their skills. The parking lot skills course and practice time is a great way to learn and internalize techniques that can be life saving out on the road. The instructor team does a fantastic job at tailoring their instruction to fit the needs of every student! Well done ProRIDE team!
13:54 29 Jul 20
Absolutely loved my Survival Rider Course with ProRIDE. All the instructors were fantastic, teaching step by step Motorcycle skills/techniques and safety awareness. The learning atmosphere was always positive with encouragement. I am now confident behind my bike and will continue to build all the skills I learned in the years to come. I wish this course was mandatory for all beginner/novice BC riders. I'll be sending my daughter to ProRIDE when she's ready, hopefully next summer, riding beside Mom:) Top notch riding school.🏍
13:27 29 Jul 20
The motorcycle training course was fantastic. Even as someone who has riden a bike, I learn a lot and wished I had taken the course earlier. Now it's time to break my bad habits 🤓
20:36 26 Jul 20
Excellent training, engaging staff, humourous and light. After my training I am so much more confident and would like to thank all the staff who have put in all the hard work to make sure that I’m not gonna kill myself.
17:58 23 Jul 20
I took the ProRide course to get back into riding after a 24 year break. As a seasoned rider who had never taken any formal training, I was surprised how much important information I was missing about position in turns, space margins, braking, lane positioning, bike balance and control at slow speeds and traffic awareness.
I enjoyed the class sessions. The parking lot sessions started a bit basic for someone with experience, but soon the rest of the class were zooming around the parking lot. Amazing how quickly the new riders developed their skills with this course. The instructors are quick to recognize different skill levels and will adjust to accommodate your skill level as much as possible. The instructors are very real and have a great sense of humor (well, some do and some think they do haha)
In the end it was fun and I feel more confident and safer as a biker. Thanks John, Brian, Joel, Matt and the rest of the team at ProRide - see you in August for my road test support.
21:15 10 Jul 20
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Best motorcycle training program around. Hands down. Whether you're brand new to riding or want to add to your arsenal. Great instructors and program. They give you everything you need to be a confident and safe rider.
00:53 21 Apr 20
Anyone riding should sign up! The instructors are very patient and can turn the most novice learners into safe riders. I am so glad I took this course!
06:42 10 Mar 20
5 Stars Wow what an amazing experience, 10/10 would recommend and what an awesome group of instructors.
06:07 25 Feb 20

07:41 19 Feb 20
Easily the best instructors and crew in the industry! ProRIDE is a must if you're wanting to learn how to ride properly and safe. They're fun, organized and professional, and really drive home the essentials of riding safely and developing good riding habits. They have all the essential equipment and really work hard to make sure everyone gets all the attention and instruction they need. This was easily the best investment I made in my riding future. Thanks so much for all your efforts Brian, John, Joel, Matt, Marcel & the crew!
05:31 29 Oct 19
You just will not find anything better than these guys!
17:01 19 Oct 19
Can’t thank ProRIDE enough for setting us me up for success! The pace of learning was perfect and everything was streamlined. All instructors are super approachable and very good at their jobs, great teachers. We had a lot of fun during our course and the group rides. The road test support was super valuable and I’m sure it’s the reason I passed my final test. Learning all the survival skills has been invaluable and has made me comfortable with riding in a variety of conditions. Such a wonderful community of riders, I recommend to anyone who is interested in riding!
16:19 20 Sep 19
The team at ProRIDE are the absolute best. Survival rider program is thorough and leaves you feeling prepared and confident to hit the road. Forget 5/5 rating, these guys get 1Billion/5. Big shout out to Brian, John, Matt and the whole crew. Thanks so much, you guys are terrific at what you do. #bikewave
21:33 28 Aug 19
These guys are amazing! Terrific support system whilst being thorough and attentive to the needs of all levels of riders! Special shout out to Bryan! Made me regain my confidence on a motorcycle; 5/5!!
20:12 08 Aug 19
Took the Survival Training course in June ago and passed my ICBC road test 2 months later no problem.
Just took the Skills Upgrade class this weekend which filled in a bunch of knowledge & skill gaps I had with slow speed maneouvers. The tips and tweaks provided by the instructors have helped me eliminate the anxiety I had about dropping the bike while doing slow, tight turns. Recommended!
01:37 01 Jul 19
Skills upgrade class. They make it work for any level. 40 + years of riding, taken this course a bunch of times and I always come away with a little something extra in my backpack.

An amazing course, super pleased with all the help and back up. They really set you up for success.
04:04 17 Jun 19
I took the survival rider training program with ProRIDE and I couldn’t be more happier with that decision. I have gained all the necessary skills to ride a motorcycle effectively and safely. I wanna thank Brian, Joel, John, Otto and Matt for all their patience and making the class so much fun. #80s
17:31 28 May 19
ProRide has a professional approach to developing safe riding habits and are really helpful and fun in their mentoring to develop crucial beginner skills on a bike!
01:45 11 May 19
Great training and instructors! Love the extra pre-test road class. Felt much more comfortable having it.
03:35 08 May 19
the trainers are phenomenal. the whole course is informative, supportive, and judgement free. whether you've just gotten on a bike for the first time or a seasoned vet, these guys can still reach you lots.
04:42 22 Apr 19
fantastic and energetic instructors
02:46 14 Apr 19
The fact they use an evidence based, engaging teaching methods. Dave is a class act and matter of fact they all are. The survival tips I've learned are just a base of more learning and refining based on the principles they shared. -Excelsior!
21:05 07 Apr 19
Wonderful attitude towards new riders of all learning styles and confidence. So exciting to be learning to ride in a non judgemental environment and great comradery. Thank you to all the instructors at Pro Ride
22:33 22 Mar 19
So professional and make it a lot of fun.
22:36 20 Mar 19
The instructors are knowledgeable and fun, and there was lots of practise, and even one on one coaching.
02:52 25 Feb 19
Thanks so much to the whole crew. Coming from zero MC experience, you made learning an awesome experience!
03:19 19 Feb 19
Extremely knowledgeable and patient instructors who make this course very fun!
01:19 29 Oct 18
I have been riding since 1982 and Proride found out the habits and skills I need to change and improve on in no time. As a rider new to Canada, there is a lot to learn about road laws and conditions. Excellent and clear instruction taught in quick shift. An excellent investment in safe biking, highly recommended.

Highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn how to ride or even if you have some riding experience. Absolutely fabulous experiences and met some great peeps along the way!
16:50 16 Oct 18
Those instructors are awesome and passionate. 5 stars.
09:39 09 Oct 18
The curriculum is very comprehensive and extensive. The instructors are excellent. Perfect balance of light humour and serious focus on the key elements and safety made the course a pleasure. I'd recommend it to anyone who has ridden already or is a newbie like me. Overall ... Awesome ... Thanks John, Brian, Matt, & Otto!
10:17 02 Oct 18
Not sure where to begin, but let's start here.
I moved from Winterpeg(Winnipeg) to Vancouver for school, this was about 3 weeks ago. At the 2 week mark I realized how badly I wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle, so I looked up some places nearby. ProRide was one of the 2 or 3 that popped up, so I called each one and asked a few questions. ProRide immediately set off to answer each and every question, no matter how tedious or repetitive.
I signed up as soon as i ended the phone called with ProRide(The final one i called) and immediately took the knowledge test to attend the ProRide school.
Day 1/2: Classroom. It's a classroom. It's boring. But this wasn't the case for these guys. Brian and John made everything enjoyable.
Day 3/4: Bikes in the parking lot. The learning curve was indeed steep, but it was reachable thanks to the instructors at ProRide. All of them were helpful beyond your imagination. Let me put it simply, i'd have paid more for this course.
Day 5 - Road Ride: I was nervous, so were a few others. But It was beyond comfortable and felt second nature after only a couple minutes of being on the road with the instructor. The teaching they gave prepared us for this Road Ride (Not to mention the MST on day 4). And it was because of the instructors' knowledge at ProRide that made us ready for that Day 5. I cannot explain in words how appreciative I am of their hard work in teaching us all in ways that worked. It wasn't just 1 way of teaching, they adapted to everyone's needs. Some learned faster than others. They adjusted. They were professional.
I'm excited for the 2nd road ride which includes highway. I'm not even slightly nervous about it, all because these fine instructors have made us Road Ready in only 4 days. 4. Count it. 4. That's amazing for someone who has never ridden more than a bicycle.
They gave their time, sweat and tears to teaching us. They made it SO much fun, i didn't think it could be. But they did it. Do yourself a favour, take the course, pass like we did, and get that license. You'll be glad you chose Pro Ride.
To ProRide: Thank you. Thank you ALL so much for the hard work you put in to us. You are all amazing and will always be my recommendation for anyone who wishes to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Be safe!
14:52 07 Sep 18
I just want to say that everyone at Proride is awesome, supportive and professional! Shout out to Matt, Brian and John for making my journey (and I'm sure many others) into riding the most seamless experience ever. I went from not knowing anything about bikes to a full licence in a single summer. I highly recommend taking the course, not only if you want to learn to ride, but if you want to learn to ride right. And you also get to meet some great people along the way 🙂 Win, win!
19:51 05 Sep 18
I would most definitely recommend ProRide! Best experience ever!
15:30 05 Sep 18
Excellent course. So worth the money. The instructors were fun, patient and very professional. Thanks Proride!
05:00 20 Aug 18
Awesome course, totally worth every penny. These guys give great tips and are super attentive to students, so everyone gets to feel confident and comfortable on their bike. I’d recommend ProRide to anybody.
23:51 03 Aug 18
What a great way to get back into riding - I used to ride when I was younger and always wanted to get back into it but wanted a place to go re-learn all the right ways to ride. Proride offered a great course and all of the guys involved were super helpful and patient! I would recommend this program to any level of rider. Special thanks to Matt and Otto!
00:30 27 Jul 18
Honestly the best choice i could have made. I finished the course with the knowledge to ride safely and confident in my ability to traverse this crazy city.
I would rate 10/5 if they would let me.
13:37 03 Jul 18
Just read a few reviews and agree with all of them. My experience was awesome as well. All set to pick up my new scooter today with the skills, knowledge and confidence I need to ride safe. Thanx so much Matt,Brian,Patrick.Otto!!
05:16 20 Jun 18
I took the ProRide training this spring. A rainy weekend to be sure but my jaw hurt from smiling so much. I commute to work on my bike and practise what they taught, highway, street and parking lot work. This morning a car ran a red light, not at the tail end of a red, like two cars had already gone through the intersection ran a red light. I was in the middle lane when the mustang beside me hammered on the brakes. I stopped extremely hard and fast. No skid, no nose dive and I'm pretty sure I even down shifted the 52 times they hammer into you. Take the course, these guys know what they are doing. They will give you the skills to survive on the road and enjoy riding. No joke, this is the real deal. Thanks guys!
02:55 18 Jun 18
06:08 12 Jun 18
Just finished my group ride with them tonight. The classes were awesome and all the instructors were knowledgeable, funny and helpful. I couldn't ask for more. If you want to ever get on a bike, I would highly recommend proride
01:42 28 May 18
I wasn’t sure what to expect from their training. Most classes are boring and dry. This was different. Totally professional but also fun and funny. I feel much more confident as a rider now. Thanks guys!
14:52 17 May 18
I took the course and loved it!
15:55 01 May 18
Thank you all for your Patients guys, I'am so happy I took this course.
01:35 04 Apr 18
These guys are great... really! When I was signing up, I was a bit hesitant since the price seemed a bit too high, but when you go to the first class, you know what you are paying for. Amazing staff who take the time and make sure you understand every detail. They make sure you are ready for riding when you leave the class. Highly recommended. Patrick, Matt and Otto were great instructors.
00:04 04 Apr 18
Awesome instructors, had a fantastic time and learned a lot!
19:03 29 Mar 18
23:33 06 Mar 18
I had the privilege of taking the ProRide course this past weekend and am beyond thrilled at the expert level of instruction I received.
I progressed from 'complete newbie' to 'competent handler' in the span of two days!
The instruction is second to none -- these guys run a tight ship to say the least. The instructors really know their stuff; they run a very smooth and efficient program and were able to provide more than enough personal attention to EVERY participant to ensure that we all passed the skills test with ease.
It was an utter pleasure to be taught how to ride by these guys, and I am pretty sure that our interaction doesn't end with the end of the course. They seem to be a very sociable bunch who have built a solid riding community from their recruits.
I am very happy indeed that I jumped in with both feet and took the time to take this course -- 150% recommended!
04:04 26 Feb 18
I completed their Survival Training this weekend. There was a foot of snow in the parking lot and HAIL on test day. These guys worked their tails off to clear the lot and provide a world class experience. The Proride team Love what they do and it shows in their training. Excellent knowledge, skills, anecdotes and humour to calm the nerves.
Very impressed. Don’t go anywhere else.
02:22 06 Feb 18
18:50 01 Dec 17
I was very impressed with the calibre of instruction and support from ProRide. Even in the pouring rain, they were there. I doubt I would have passed my road test without them! ProRide gave me the skillz, knowledge and confidence to safely ride a motorcycle. Thanks Guys!
22:45 29 Nov 17
I've ridden alto of bikes over the years and couldn't believe how many things i was unaware of until i took the Proride survival course! Lots of skills to assist in your riding style and a great bunch of guys patient enough to help you along the way. Thanks again guys! Great experience!
04:24 28 Oct 17
Proride helped me pass my class 6 I started riding in June and now I'm fully licensed! Definitely recommend!
23:26 23 Oct 17
Nice guys on the proride team who are also very knowledgable. A bit of money for the course but lots of valuable skills gained. It's also great how they're helping you all the way up to your road test.
06:24 23 Oct 17
ProRide offers outstanding motorcycle training as well as follow up service for alumni. If you want to learn how to ride a motorcyle look no further than ProRide!

These are an exemplary group of instructors, they create a comfortable and fun environment to give you all the skills you need to pass your MST and road test. They took me from never having ridden a motorcycle to passing my MST in three days of parking lot training, as well as providing all the necessary safety information in two classroom sessions. I would absolutely recommend their school to anyone who is just starting out or needs to refresh, it’s worth every penny.
18:04 11 Sep 17
I had a great experience with ProRide, the 6 day survival course was intense but well run, and their staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I really appreciated the post graduate support including the weekend rides which were a lot of fun and had a good range of bikes to choose from. Cheers to Brian and Len especially, you two were fantastic! Thanks again!
17:31 31 Aug 17
The training was great, as were the instructors! I feel that I will be far safer riding.

The instructors were top notch and made every effort to provide a first rate experience, while keeping it light and fun for everyone.
As someone who has some riding experience (from back in the day), I can honestly say that this course is not only a great refresher, but really should be an absolute must for all riders as it's small price to pay for some important tips that could one day save your life. Thanks!!
18:26 19 Jun 17
14:57 14 Jun 17
Loved the course! It was extremely helpful in building up my confidence to ride a motorcycle. The instructors are very knowledgable and patient. Thank you so much guys!!!
20:53 13 Jun 17
The instructors are as entertaining as they are knowledgable. They get everyone in the class road ready with a perfect mixture of exercises, tips and personal coaching. The training allowed me to feel confident I was riding as safely as possible.
01:39 12 Jun 17
Great program, great support and great instructors. I had never ridden a motorcycle prior to the course and the confidence I gained through the course was exponential. All the instructors want to see you exceed and come away from the course with the skills and knowledge to succeed. I highly recommend proride!
16:49 07 Jun 17
Its a great school whether your a beginner or a seasoned rider as there is always something new to learn. Fantastic teachers, Certified and seasoned riders themselves. It was very relaxing they made it a fun experience. The classroom is very informative and the parking lot and road rides were great. John, Brian, Otto and Matt were just brilliant. Highly Recommended . . . ..
12:58 02 Jun 17
I was nervous about riding at first but Proride's approach to survival riding and great instructors really works. Highly recommend this course if you're thinking about riding!

A structured and fun learning experience. The saying goes you can't teach and old dog new tricks, but Proride really can!
Terrific crew, special mention for John and Brian who were simply superb.
Head and eyes up - look where you want to go - push to go straight - a mantra to live by..
23:40 18 Apr 17
Such a great experience training with the ProRide crew!!! I've ridden for years on and off but was always nervous until I did the course!! Highly highly recommend them! Thanks again guys!!
18:55 13 Apr 17
Amazing!!! Super well prepared, detailed, organized, totally worth the time and money!
03:23 08 Apr 17
Amazing service ! Highly recommended and a must for all new riders.
08:53 09 Mar 17
Before I started the Proride course I was a bit hesitated about money to spend for that. However, after completion the course I would say that it worth every single penny. The guys are not just good, the most important that they do care about you and are interested in your success. Also they taught a lot of things that maybe eventually would let you survive in tough road situations. One month later after their course I passed ICBC road test with the first attempt, and the examiner's feedback was - You did a great job, man! So, I do advise to invest you time and money - in really worth it. Btw, not to forget - it also was a real fun ))
19:18 22 Feb 17
Great team that really care! Worth every penny! Thanks guys!
23:51 14 Feb 17
I am happy to share that i have completed the ProRide motorcycle course. This course is fun, clear, and very easy to understand. This course wouldnt be the same without the awesome knowledgeable humerous instructors and the positive environment. My classmates were an excellent bunch aswell, you get a chance to get to know one another and have a great time. You will finish this course being more than satisfied with confidence inspiring survival skill knowledge, you will feel comfortable on the road on a motorcycle, and you'll feel like you belong on a motorcycle. I would strongly recommend ProRide to anyone! Have fun and ride safe.
00:14 14 Feb 17
Having never drove a motorcycle before, this weekend I've completed and passed my skills test and gone on a road ride. One of the most fun courses I've ever taken! The instructors are extremely knowledgeable, energetic and humorous! I've learned so much and had so much fun along the way. I know having completed this course I can enjoy riding knowing I can build up from the solid foundation I've got from the school and ride safely. Would recommend to anyone including friends and family.

20:46 05 Nov 16
What an amazing course! I can't imagine attempting to ride on the road without this course. The drills were definitely challenging and hugely helpful- learning to handle all sorts of different traffic or road situations by creating habits that will kick in in an emergency...and more importantly, learning how to avoid dangerous situations in the first place. Amazing teachers, plenty of practice time and non-stop one on one feedback. I only wish the course could continue and keep building on a very solid foundation! Thank you pro-ride!!!!

Absolutely fantastic!!! Instructors are great (if you like 80's music). The car park training is overwhelming at times but all of it becomes clear and natural on the road. I would definitely recommend taking this course.

Never drove standard much less a motorcycle before this course. �Now the clutch and I are best friends. John is such a patient and grounded person, really great to learn from. Matt gives insightful techniques while being witty and silly at the same time, Brian can ballroom dance on the motorcycle, and Gio is the suave one amongst them all. Did I mention they are all diehards for the 80's. Pure joy...�. Be prepared to get a brainful, its definitely worth the investment for your safety.�

This is probably one of the best courses I've ever taken in my life. I knew nothing when it comes to riding motorcycles safely, changing gears, turning, how to maneuver a motorcycle and speeding within the appropriate limits in highway. By the end of the course, I was able to do all of the above and feel comfortable doing it while having fun.
There's something to be said about the way all the instructors do their job. Not only they have fun doing it but the make sure that everybody gets the attention and advice that everybody needs as individuals which is usually rare in group courses.
Special thanks to John who was always there paying attention to everyone and always concluding with uplifting comments and positive/constructive feedback. He's the one who took the group I was in on the road and he was able to gage our strengths and weaknesses.
At the end of the day, these are all a bunch of cool people that are helping others in learning how to ride safely. Job incredibly done!

The instructors at Proride are some of the best teachers I have ever met. I work training educators full-time, and many of the positive traits of patience, understanding and concise explanations are embodied by the Proride instructors. I have never rode a street bike before taking this course, but thanks to the training and support I received I am now comfortable continuing my training and practice on my own.

Pro Ride came recommended by friends of mine and it didn't take long to see why. From minute one the guys were awesome. Thanks to the pro ride experience, and there's none other quite like it, I find myself anticipating traffic problems whether in my pick-up or on my bike. I feel SAFE with the skills they have passed on to me. Best of all they made it a blast. Who would have thought learning to stay alive in the nightmare traffic that is the lower mainland could be so much fun? As an ex professional driver with tons of training under my belt I can say without doubt these guys are the very best. The very very best!!
20:20 14 Sep 16
Was an amazing course with even more amazing people and instructors!
16:42 24 Aug 16
Instructors are friendly and efficient. Highly recommended
22:24 23 Aug 16
Absolutely fantastic! 100% encourage anyone who's never taken a course to take ProRide! Amazing instructors all around, and one hell of a good time!

I didn't know anything about ride a bike. The instructors made it easy for anyone to learn. Fun guys and very knowledgeable. You get extra perks with this guys.
20:14 02 Aug 16
I just finished my survival rider course through Proride. The instructors are fantastic, knowledgeable, thorough, and funny. The extra value you get as a grad is definitely worth it!
Thanks Brian, Matt, Otto, Marcel and John!
17:25 01 Aug 16
The guys are all pros and pretty funny also but the instruction is the best and I will be sending more folks your way and thank you

A fantastic group of well seasoned Instructors sharing their knowledge and experience of motorcycle riding. A stress free environment creating the natural confidence and good riding habits that should be an etiquette for all riders. Thanks again, have a safe ride.
18:06 27 Jul 16
A great course, teaching lots of good skills and creating safe habits, all while having fun. Instructors are top notch.
06:46 27 Jul 16

05:31 25 Jul 16
I'm off to a great start with survival rider habits already in my muscle memory thanks to these guys. Learned so much over the 6 days. Hilton, Brian, John, Matt, and Marcel covered a tonne of material and kept it relaxed but directive. And I sing while riding now! Thanks.
16:47 24 Jul 16
After 35 years being off of motorcycles, I'm glad I learned how to ride the defensive way with ProRide. Highly recommended, even for experienced riders.
00:31 21 Jul 16
You can't put a price tag on what these awesome guys teach you! It really is life or death out there and it can all change in a instant. Thankfully I now have the knowledge to keep enhancing my skills as I progress as a survival rider and stay safe on the crazy roads of Vancouver. To top that all off, Matt and Brian make the six days a blast by cracking jokes, quoting movies, and signing songs while riding the bikes (or at least they try). Couldn't recommend this program enough! Your money spent is well worth it! Thanks guys:)

03:31 05 Jul 16
Can't say enough positive things about ProRide...if you're looking at other riding schools, don't bother. These guys are legit! Since taking the course, I feel very proficient on the road and every time I've found myself in an uncomfortable or undesirable situation, I can trace it directly back to me not doing something that John/Raymond/Otto/Matt/Brian/Hilton instructed us to do. Trust these guys, they really know their stuff! Many thanks ProRide.
05:05 04 Jul 16
Great place to get your motorcycle training. The instructors were great too.
10:16 30 Jun 16
Thank you to the amazing ProRide team for helping me achieve a life long dream. You helped me overcome many challenges and build confidence with your clear and patient instruction. I would recommend the survival rider course to anyone who wants to ride. Special Thanks to Brian, John, Matt and Otto! You guys ROCK!
15:41 29 Jun 16
Worth every penny !!!
Great program, Great people. Great fun
14:53 17 Jun 16
What a great experience with proride.. these guys are a ton of fun and they really know their craft. I can't say enough about these guys... great peeps and they're with you til your confident enough to be out on your own. If you're looking to learn to ride... make sure you do it with proride!!
23:56 16 Jun 16
loved everything about this program! do it, you won't regret it, also it helped me out a lot when deciding what kind of bike i wanted in the end and my riding style. I was actually really close to buying a sports bike before the course, but I'm glad i didn't cause i realized my riding style more clearly and precisely! love this course and the dudes that run it.
19:25 15 Jun 16
Just wanted to say all the guys at proRide where great and made learning to ride, fun and adventurous. Passed my road test today. Very much recommend for new and even experienced riders.
Thanks again boys, see you on the road... VROOM VROOM!!!!!
16:31 15 Jun 16
Great course, great instructors, well worth taking!

Awesome experience with great instructors. They really are making the students better riders for life. And the students were super cool as well.
16:29 08 Jun 16
Top notch instruction, great experience, even better value
06:45 08 Jun 16
This course is a must for anyone looking to start riding a motorcycle. The amount of confidence I have gained in riding a motorcycle and in my knowledge of safety in just 6 days is tremendous! All of the instructors are amazingly nice, helpful, and knowledgable. Take this course, you will not regret it!
17:49 01 Jun 16
Before going into this course I was very nervous. During the classroom sessions, the instructors took a very serious approach to teaching the knowledge needed to ride safe, but making the environment very relaxed and throwing a little humor to lighten the mood. All the instructors were very knowledgeable, and did everything they could to support a survival attitude on the bike, in the parking lot and the road rides. They went above and beyond to demonstrate safe rising practices, and made sure that all the students could complete the basic maneuvers before moving on. I would highly recommend Proride to anyone wanting to get on a bike. Thank you for the great experiences, and hope to see you all on the Saturday road rides provided after graduation. Thanks Matt, John, and Brian for helping me start enjoying something I have wanted to do for years!
17:22 01 Jun 16
Great program, I highly recommend anybody who plans on riding a motorcycle to take this course. Instructors are great, patient, fun but also serious all at the same time. Only good things to say about this program
15:20 31 May 16
I went from knowing nothing about a bike to getting on the road... GREAT training! Thanks John and Mat!!! And thanks Jason for introducing Rory and I to Pro Ride
15:34 30 May 16
Thanks ProRide for the great experience! I'd highly recommend.

Great course, and great instructors. Highly recommended for anyone thinking about getting a bike license. I've had a lot of experience as a youngster riding dirtbikes, so being on a bike feels natural, however, the course really helps you start the habits to get the rules of the road drilled in, so that you can enjoy riding the streets. The course really brings your confidence up, even if you think you're pretty good already.

After experiencing a scary incident as a passenger in my early 20s, I never thought I would be a passenger ever again, let alone ride a motorcycle myself. A few years ago, I decided to try being a passenger again, and started riding with my husband. His patience, knowledge, safe driving habits and encouragement helped me to learn to enjoy being on a bike. Thanks sweetie!
A couple of years later, I decided to get my motorcycle licence. I researched motorcycle riding schools online and came across ProRide. I am so glad that I choose them for my motorcycle training - you couldn't ask for a better group of guys! John, Brian, Matt - thanks for your patience, knowledge, support & encouragement. Otto, Jason & Marcel were helpful too.
I enjoyed all aspects of the course and had a lot of fun learning how to ride safely with a great group of people. The training is intense and tiring, but so worth it! And the joy you feel when you ride a bike for the first time is something that I won't ever forget.
I am now the proud owner of my very first bike, a 2008 Suzuki Marauder 250 and was thrilled to ride with my husband tonight for the first time. All the skills I learned in class stuck with me, so I was prepared for the dumb @!# who rolled through the stop sign to my right and cut in front of me. I slowed down, scanned the intersection and was ready for that possibility, therefore no panic, no problem. And this is why anyone wanting to ride should contact ProRide. They teach you right - they teach you to survive. Thanks guys - you rock!
17:43 04 May 16
After spending a considerable amount of time researching motorcycle training schools I decided on ProRide. I had high expectations and all of them were exceeded and the course provides great value for the money, well worth it. The instructors were extremely knowledgable and cared about your own experience as a student and a rider. I liked the progressive way the info/skills were delivered so I felt more and more confident on the bike as the days progressed. I highly recommend them and will continue to go on group rides with these hooligans 🙂

Training exceeded expectations! Thank you very much
06:36 28 Apr 16
A great course for brand new riders or as a refresher for anyone who hasn't riden in a few years. The Instructors are knowledgeable, easy going guys whose main goal is to prepare riders for every situation they may potentially face on the road. They are pushing safety but inject humour to keep things on the lighter side.
Highly recommended for anyone thinking about riding on two wheels!

Just finished my 6 day Survival ring class with Proride where they bring you from zero to hero. What an amazing group of individuals with a wealth of knowledge. I was recommended to take Proride from one of my buddies who has been riding for ten years. He said Proride was the best out of all the motorcycle schools and after completing the course I would have to agree. Survival is key to riding a bike and that is the objective of Proride's course - train habits to safe riding so we all can enjoy the road for years. If you are thinking of learning to ride I would highly recommend.
06:22 20 Apr 16
04:56 19 Apr 16
Great course preparing you to enjoy motorcycling. Thorough instructions and positive atmosphere. Thanks guys, this has been so much fun!
03:53 16 Apr 16
Priceless class for safe riding in such a crazy driver city like Vancouver. Great lesson plans, practice sessions and teachers. Would recommend this to friends for sure.
23:14 14 Apr 16
Great instructors and excellent training. I really enjoyed the fast paced course and would recommend it to the newbies and the old riders like myself that need to get back up to speed to pass the road test, well done Pro Ride Staff.

Can't praise ProRide guys highly enough. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and super friendly. They will provide you with the knowledge and strategies to make you a better and safer rider. I took the course with zero riding experience and passed the road test within a month. They've been there every step of the way with their support and invaluable advice. Thanks everyone for a great learning experience!
02:23 07 Apr 16
Proride is THE BEST! The training is intensive and very consistent. Everything I do while I ride today is in my muscle memory because of Proride. I feel so confident and yet know to always be on my game. Brian is such a great trainer and is so dedicated to his role in making you a confident and safe rider. This course is a must.
I'm in my 50's and decided it was now or never. I went from Learner's Permit, to passing my skills test on the forth day of training, and passed my road test all within 5 months. That included winter months. Started in October. Fully licensed by March.
Go Proride and thank you for all you did for me!!!! 100% recommended!

Went from no experience to ready for the road in 6 days.. Can't imagine how I could explain to "6-days-ago-me" that this course would sky rocket my confidence and ability on 2-motorized wheels, but it truly did -- Brian, Jason, Otto, John, Matt, Matthew and Marcel are my not-so-secret weapon in gaining true foundation to riding. THANK YOU!
15:01 24 Mar 16
With great progressive learning with a bunch of excellent teachers that know what they are doing, I was able to pass my Road Test first time. Thanks Brian and Matt!
06:05 24 Mar 16
For maybe the 2nd or 3rd time I've actually taken a few minutes to write a review here and it's the 1st time I've ever posted on more than 1 site about the same thing. After a long time (25 yrs) away from riding I decided to take it up again this year. I did some looking around for a refresher course but decided that I might as well start from scratch and learn riding from the ground up. I'm very happy that I did that with ProRide. These guys know what they are doing, enjoy doing it, and make sure that you do as well by the time you complete the course. Highly recommended.
22:51 20 Mar 16
These guys are phenomenonal, professional instructors. Encouraging, positive, clear directions, and friendly. They make each person feel comfortable and calm, especially if you know nothing about riding. Definitely highly recommend these guys. Will be back each spring for a refresher before riding.
00:09 17 Mar 16
I have to give a shout out to all the staff @PRO RIDE . I never rode a motorbike until a month ago and today i passed my final test, I couldn't have done it without you guys !! Thanx Brian , Otto , Matt , John

Hello out there this is Colin Yarrow downhill mountain bike athlete/current BC provincial champion. Being a downhill racer at a world championship level I have no doubt that I can handle a bike however when jumping from mountain bike to motorcycle and putting yourself out there in the general public I had to rethink "how much do I really know".
I just completed the first half of the pro ride course today and the amount of knowledge that i've taken in so far has exceeded my expectations. We haven't even hit the road yet (parking lot skills training only so far) and I feel a lot more confident in not just bike handling skills but making myself visible to others and aware of how many hazards there are or could be.
Not to mention "pro ride" has the most down to earth instructors I have ever met. Can't wait for the road portion over the next couple of days rain or shine.

I can't say enough about how great these guys are. Matt, Brian and the whole gang made learning fun. They not only teach you how to ride, they teach you how to survive. They are patient, they handle everything with a sense of humor... but always make sure you are learning the right stuff.
Don't go anywhere else for your motorcycle training! These guys are the best....
00:13 30 Oct 15
I took this course cpl months ago mainly because I liked the fact that you can ride solo after only 4 days in! But the knowledge I learned from this course not only made me a better rider but a better driver in my car. I'm looking for things I never looked for before. All I can say it's 100% worth every penny. It also gave me the confidence to ride right away and pass my test with flying colors! Thank you proride and thank you Brian for being one of the best teachers I have had.
21:05 21 Oct 15
03:39 19 Oct 15
I just completely my second round of skills in the parking lot today. It was tough but worth every minute. I passed the test and must thank Brian and Matt, two incredibly skilled, patient and funny guys who truly care and work very hard to see that you succeed. Thanks guys. Couldn't have asked for better teachers. Oh, and Brian, first song on the radio during my drive home was from Glass Tiger "Don't forget me (when I'm gone)". How appropriate. Every time I hear that song, I will think of that 80's guy, Brian from Proride.
00:24 02 Oct 15
Great instruction that builds confidence. Brian keeps the atmosphere light and fun, while still driving home the importance of safety and attention while riding. I highly recommend the course to anyone who has never touched a motorcycle before, or even to someone who has riding experience and is preparing for a skills test or road test. You might just learn a skill that could save your life. I felt safe and comfortable in the learning environment and just generally, this course has helped me become more aware as a driver of any vehicle on the road. Thanks for teaching me how to ride guys! Two thumbs up!! Thanks to Brian, Matt, and Otto!
22:02 29 Sep 15
I went in green having only ridden a bicycle....and that was many years ago. Right from the first classroom lesson, I knew this was going to be well worth my time and money. The instruction from Brian in the classroom was insightful, well presented and interesting. The parking lot training with Brian and Matt was perfect....starting off with basics and moving towards riding a motorcycle. Safety was always first and foremost. The road ride with Marcell and Matthew instilled a much needed sense of "I can do this on the road". All in all I couldn't speak more highly of the staff and teaching techniques. Thanks ProRide!
16:08 26 Sep 15
23:53 24 Sep 15
A few weeks ago I gave myself a bday gift: a motorcycle course at proride. It was one of the best gifts I ever got. Excellent school and now I'm riding with confidence and safety and making my dream come true. Thanks guys!!
15:05 17 Sep 15
Down to earth people's with good strategies for safety. I'd go back if there was a second round course.

Excellent instructors. Highly recommended to riders of any experience level that are planning on riding o the road.
19:31 12 Aug 15
Just finished the course, people were great, training was great, and I thought it was great value for money given all the training and time on the bike. Highly recommended.
20:19 12 Jul 15
Great course that is taught at a acceptable pace for any level of skill! I had no experience on a bike at all and after 5 minutes on the group ride I was gained a lot more confidence. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to ride and want to thank Jen and Brian for all the tips and suggestions they have for safety.
18:26 10 Jul 15
13:13 10 Jul 15
Great experience with pro ride, my husband took the class with them before me and also found their instruction to be invaluable. They were patient and taught us both great survival skills on the road. My other friends have since taken their course also and are great riders! Don't hesitate, sign up and join the fun!
01:26 06 Jul 15
Awesome time with proride!! Thanks to our instructors brian and jen
00:48 06 Jul 15
18:21 01 Jul 15
Had an amazing experience from start to finish. The team has a professional attitude with a great mix of humor. Always felt safe while still being able to challenge myself and push my limits. I would recommend ProRide to anyone looking to get into motorcycling!!
16:32 01 Jul 15
Awesome Course!!!!! Worth every penny and would highly recommend. I now feel very confident out there with everything I have been taught. And super fun staff to go along with that. Loved every minute of it! Including Brian's singing. LOL
19:59 25 Jun 15
Excellent instructors and program with focus on "survival" riding. I would recommend it to friends.
21:22 24 Jun 15
Took the course in June 2014. The instructors are excellent, facilities and equipment very good and the content was put across in an easy to understand manner. Passed my road test at the first attempt which is testament to the quality of training. Just bought my second bike and still in touch and riding with my classmates. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Awesome course.
16:49 24 Jun 15
There unique and enjoyable teaching style takes out the stress and anxiety of leaning such comprehensive task as motorcycle riding without sacrificing the fundamental need of understanding safety and skill development. If you want to learn solid basics for a lifelong safe and fun riding experience....go ProRide !!!
13:58 24 Jun 15
Great investment. Highly recommended. Very well thought out and great instructors
06:37 24 Jun 15
This is a really great course. They are serious about building good habits in your riding in a very fun way. It progresses really well so by the time you are in heavier traffic, and at the end of the last day, the Highway!!!!, you know what you are doing and you know what you need to keep practicing.
17:04 22 Jun 15
Rad times with proride! Thanks again! If you need a refresher or you've decided to move to two wheels these folks got you covered!
20:07 15 Jun 15
Brian, Jen and Matt are tremendous staff! Detailed, thorough, invested, constructive. Thanks y'all! And thanks for the singing!

I enjoyed it . All the instructors kept it fun! Very informative
19:42 11 Jun 15
22:06 09 Jun 15
Just had the greatest motorcycle course and today completed the last road ride on the highway...... Incredible time. Thanks to Brian, Jen, Otto and Matt. You are awesome people and instructors. Your knowledge and feedback was very encouraging and helpful. I feel in the last 6 days I have become a more confident and safer rider. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️s to all of you for great job well done!!!
16:16 05 Jun 15
This course is a must. I have always loved motorcycles but had an overall fear. It wasn't because I thought they wer'nt safe, it was because I wasn't safe. Proride gave me the confidence to get out and ride. I highly recommend this course. Instructors were great. Special Thank you to Bryan.

The instructors are super fun and really knowledgeable! I would recommend this course to anybody that wants to ride a motorbike!
03:35 03 Jun 15
Today I went for a ride on the freeway, just 4 days after hopping on a motorbike for the first time ever, at some point during the ride, I realized I had as much confidence as would have taken me a year of riding to build without Proride, and with far more good riding habits than I otherwise would have. Well worth the course fee. If you're looking to build some rock solid riding skills in a hilariously entertaining environment and feel confident you won't become a statistic, look no further.
18:00 20 May 15
Thanks for an incredible experience. I was very nervous as a first time rider. Brian, Jen and Matt were so helpful, patient, fun, and serious when it comes to teaching you about survival on the road. The steps were so progressive from day one in the classroom to day six on the final road day.
Brian - Thanks for building my confidence over the first 3 days to get me started on the bike. I'm pretty sure I will master the "push to go straight button" due to your awesome super soaker.
Matt - I so appreciate the time you spent with me before the MSA - U turn, U turn, U turn...
Jen - I could not have asked for a better instructor. You rock! Thank you Thank you Thank you for taking me down the road.
It was so exciting to arrive home and take my own bike out for the first time.
Awesome course. Keep on singing!

14:45 15 May 15
Amazing experience!!! Brian, Matt, Jen and all of the instructors are incredibly knowledgeable. And let's not forget PATIENT 🙂 The structure and progression of the parking lot training made sense and enabled me to become comfortable on the bike quickly. The road rides were well thought out and allowed us to practice many different skills to prepare us for practicing on our own. Everyone wanting to learn how to ride a motorcycle needs to take this course. I will definitely be taking it again as a refresher. I might even take it again in a month or so just to drive everything home.
03:44 15 May 15
Had a great time learning and riding with ProRide. They took my dad and I from nothing to licensed riders in a months' time! (Ps dad is 69, didnt use to need a motorcycle license and is now ecstatic!).
15:15 14 May 15
I can't thank Brian and Jen enough for all the Valuable knowledge they passed on to me.. I could not imagine trying to learn how to ride before going to ProRide first . Brian made the classroom section interesting and fun while Jen (and Brian) taught me so much on the course and on the road. Thank you for making this such a great experience for me..
14:53 14 May 15
I recommend this course to all new and previous riders,they are awesome people who really care about you.
07:03 13 May 15
Great course with incredible instructors! Highly recommended for anyone interested in riding a motorcycle.
02:24 13 May 15
If you're new to the riding scene and are looking for a great way to get introduced to both theory and practical riding skills, then the ProRide course is an absolute must. I've been riding dirtbikes since I was a little guy and I can definitely say that there is still a ton to learn when it comes to the transition to the streets. The guys and gals at ProRide offer a great learning environment, welcome any questions you may have, and take the time and consideration to tend to those who may need a little extra help, all while doing it with a smile on their face and a joke or two to back it up. All in all, a great learning experience, great connections made, and a new understanding on how I conduct myself on the road, both as a driver, and a rider. Thanks all.
14:56 12 May 15
20:10 11 May 15
Highly recommend this course. The teachers care about your safety. Ride Safe Everyone!!!
05:35 08 May 15
Great folks working here! Brian kept the classroom portion entertaining as it was informative, Otto is a cool dude and Jen is an absolute gem! I had never sat on a running motorcycle before the course and six days later I was riding with confidence. I have no doubt with the skills that I've learned, I can keep myself safe among those lunatics out there. Wholeheartedly recommended.
Thanks again, Bryan Lim
07:06 07 May 15
Glad that I took this training class from ProRide. I took a motorcycle class in Hong Kong before, but this is a whole new experience and lot of informations that I never learn before. The instructors (Brian, Matt and Jen) are giving you their best to help you out, so you are not only knowing how to ride, but you also know how to ride safely. 5 stars recommended :)))
04:21 24 Apr 15
Great group of people. Serious about making sure you learn what you need to learn.

Not sure how they could be better. They do exactly what you need them to. They train you for the road and ensure that safety is always top-of-mind. Great experience, and got me on a motorcycle feeling safe.
It’s been three years since I did the course with you guys, since then I’ve moved to California and been forced to take motorcycle training all over again because of silly laws. Training here was awful and was all about getting us on the road and not keeping us alive. I still have you guys in my head, every time I ride about breaking straight and not looking down and the bike going in the direction I look. I think you guys have kept me alive and accident free so far (knock on wood). Thanks from 3 years out. ~Rayan Rafay, 6/2018
Thank you all for the great experience at ProRide. I passed my ICBC road test on the first attempt. Without all of your teaching and coaching and patience, I know now that I would not have passed on first attempt without your course. The huge amount of material one must study and know, would take much longer and painful to learn by oneself. The knowledge base of the ProRide instructors is an invaluable resource in learning to ride, I and found that the instructors freely share it both in the classroom and in the field. I am telling, not suggesting, to all I speak to in regards to getting a MC license, ProRide is the school to go to. The small investment in the course will give you the ability to ride with confidence, and may even save your life. Again, thank you for helping me become a “Survival Rider” ~Michael Stadnyk, 7/2015
Getting my motorbike license has been a lifelong dream and through ProRide I am making it happen!!! On June 4, 2015 I began the 6 day course and found the program to be thorough, supportive and dynamic. Each of the instructors brought their own flair to the team. First up was Brain who taught us in the classroom and then again in the parking lot practical training. Clearly, Brian was a strong team player, always early, putting up cones and was lots of fun while always imparting the necessity for safety and road sense, continually reminding us, “Don’t be that guy!” On Saturday we met Jen In the parking lot practical on the bikes. Jen was super supportive and very positive always encouraging us with, “You can do it.” She was all business when it came to testing but you knew you had done well when you passed with her! Talk about building confidence for the road!!! Matt, the owner was easy going and exuded confidence. It was clear he took pride and ownership of his team and business: our learning well was important to him. My road rides were done with Otto. When we headed out, safety was paramount and he would stop along the way to check in with the group, provide feedback on our skills and then continue on. He rides his bike every day and showed loads of knowledge and confidence. Any course or program is only as good as the instructors and ProRide is no exception. The entire team was a pleasure to meet and work with. It was evident from day one that the student’s learning was important and relationship building was key. All students are encouraged to keep in touch as the ProRide team wants to share in the joy of safe riding and hear their students stories. Taking the course was a brilliant first step in acquiring my license. Here’s to dreams coming true in my 50’s!!! Woooohooooo! Thank you ProRide!!! I’d recommend this course to everyone who would like to get their class 6 license. ~Vivian Olson, 7/2015
All the instructors were great and it was a fun experience. Being a new driver I was nervous but they made it a fun time and easy to learn. When I did my road test my bike moved backward on a slope and I got nervous. As I was leaving the lot I saw the pro ride instructor and remembered one key thing everyone told me while riding to calm the nerves and ride well. I began singing a song. I know it sounds silly but it really helps and it works I sang my way to success and got my license. Thanks for all the help and support pro ride. ~Neville Khajotia, 7/2015
Glad that I took this training class from ProRide. I took a motorcycle class in Hong Kong before, but this is a whole new experience and lot of informations that I never learn before. The instructors (Brian, Matt and Jen) are giving you their best to help you out, so you are not only knowing how to ride, but you also know how to ride safely. 5 stars recommended :))) ~Pazu Chu, 5/2015
Time to name drop! Truly enjoyed learning to ride with Brian, Matt G, and Jen. They made the classroom and parking lot/cones portion of the course informative and hilarious! #hollywood The past two nights were spent out on the road with Matt and Marcel ~ They made sure we were ready to ride with confidence with a parking lot warm-up and then they took us out on the road for my first street ride on a bike. I always felt safe and in control. THANK YOU to all the great staff for making my learning experience awesome. I would not have wanted to start out on a motorcycle without a course, and your instruction was PERFECT! 10/10 ~Michael Frolick, 4/2015
Hi Brian i just finished the evening course march 24th 2015 when i talk to riders who havent taken the proride survivor rider course they say they dont need it they have been rideing all there life that doesnt mean they have been doing it right this course is a must if you want to survive out there thank you to Brian Jenn and Matt you are the reason ILL COME HOME TO MY FAMILLY after a ride ~Bill Ellison 4/2015
“I wanted to take a few minutes to give you my feedback from your course. I took the course a couple of weeks ago. It was fantastic, I can’t say enough about how much I learned. The classroom content was basic but presented very well and in an entertaining way by Brian, lots of good stuff. The material was presented in a relaxed easy to understand way.” – Chris
“The two days riding in the parking lot was so well done, the instructors Matt and Jennifer were so helpful, patient and knowledgable. They encourage you to work hard, learn and have fun. These guys are great assets to your school.” – Chris
“The two days on the road really encouraged me and helped me feel safe. I met Lionel, but never rode with him, but in discussions with him again he was a great instructor. Jennifer was my instructor for two days as we rode, she is very very good, I really enjoyed riding with her, she had a way of showing me my mistakes without making me feel bad. It was very good riding with her. Fantastic!” – Chris
“ProRide has modern facilities, classrooms and equipment. Training sessions are cheerful and upbeat. The staff is courteous, cheerful and patient and have the knowledge both practical and theory to provide each rider with the necessary skills and confidence to start their safe riding career. Very highly recommended!” Kevin W.
“I did not know what to expect. When I walked in, I was made comfortable and people were friendly. Good start. The instructors were polite and straightforward. When I first went to the bike, I was already somewhat familiar with it, through what I had learned in class. It was easier than I thought, too. The instructors were great. As far as instructing me, their continuous positive support and patience helped a lot. I’m sure everyone in my class felt the same.” Sarah S.
“This was most definitely the most important accomplishment in my life in a long time! At the end of day 6, the instructor (Matt) let me try his bike! If that’s not trust in you own teaching skills I don’t know what is! This offer (and I did it) was the ultimate to secure my feeling of accomplishment and ability as the bike was significantly, larger, faster, and heavier than the training bikes- this made all the difference in the world to my confidence! Thank you, Matt! ProRide has made the entire experience fun, fast, and something I will never forget! Thanks guys!” Jennie T.
“What really impressed me was the way you handled my scheduling conflict, even though you were inconvenienced by my last minute cancellation. You provided me with options and were pleasant about the whole thing. This was an example of first-rate customer service. You guys should be proud because very few places in the city would have been so conciliatory about my situation. You guys obviously care more than most nowadays. Thanks again, and best of luck with your business. Also, free bottled water, food, snacks and coffee were a nice classy touch.” Jim V.
“I’d like to give you all you a heartfelt “Thank you.” I had so many problems learning to ride. I fell over 3 times and broke the turn signal. Then I failed the MSA. You never got impatient or short with me — you were so positive. I actually expected you to send me home after I failed the test. I was so happy when you took me aside for an hour and worked with just me after class. Then I got to do my MSA again and passed. I really appreciated you guys! Without your confidence in me I would have given up and I never would have continued. I passed my road test yesterday! I’ll never forget you guys. Thank you for everything and I hope you guys keep growing into more success. I will send all my friends!” Susan R.
“My experience here was great. I’ve wanted to learn to ride for a few years and now that I’ve taken this course I’m glad I did! I would never have gotten on a bike without taking a course first. I looked around at other schools, and my decision to take the course with ProRide was an awesome one. I feel it was incredibly thorough and I feel that there was great positive emphasis on pushing yourself to try things that might have seemed scary, like breaking in a corner or figure eights with a passenger! I would not hesitate to recommend the ProRide course to all my friends who want to learn.” Darren B.
“Well let me begin by saying thank you on a job well done. ProRide Training School was professional, fun, and safe. Before I took the course I had never ridden a motorcycle. In one weeks’ time they took me from being scared of motorcycles to allowing me to hop on my CBR 600, I had waiting in my garage, and drive it with confidence. Once again thank you and you guys do a great job. Special thanks to Matt, Chris and Daniel. Keep up the great work. First class!” Tommy P.
“I must admit I really wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle safely. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. I felt comfortable with the instructors and confident in their teachings. I truly believe that your school did a great job of making me a safe and confident rider as well as, very likely to tell others about it. Matt, Chris and Nick were great at picking up what each rider’s problem was and how to remedy it. The road rides were challenging and practical and the range riding essential. The criticism was tactful and helpful. I have already and will continue to suggest ProRide to anyone. Good luck! I can’t say enough about you guys!” Tim D.
“I thought ProRide was a very good, well-organized course and would tell anyone that asked about it. I learned so many things that only a week ago I didn’t know. With the skills I’ve learned, and a touch of luck, I’m going to pass this final road test!” Hardeep M.
“Unlike most students, this is the second school I have attended. I was training at another school and couldn’t believe the low quality of instructors. I felt neglected and the guy even yelled at me and almost made me cry! After I paid for my course with them, they still wanted money to use a helmet. I left because of the pressure on me from the teachers. I then had to pay again to go to ProRide and start over. wow…so different. I really noticed a difference in professionalism and how they carried themselves. ProRide was classy and they obviously care about students being comfortable and relaxed. The bikes were really new and I passed my road test first try. ProRide – you turned my nightmare into a dream come true! Many blessings!” Angela W.
“My experience with ProRide was a good one. I had a problem with the original course date I was registered for and I was given the opportunity to take the next course instead of them just keeping my tuition. I thought that was nice and courteous of them because they could have kept it. Great character, which seems rare lately. Anyways you guys do a great job. Keep it up!” Tyler P.
“”10 out 10! I would, without hesitation, recommend any new or experienced rider to attend ProRide. The knowledge learned was invaluable and is sure to increase my chances of survival. ProRide was professional and organized. Didn’t push, realized each individual’s potential. Great, thanks.” Colin B.
“I found my time here enjoyable. I learned a lot in a very short amount of time. Before I came into this training course, I’ve never sat on a bike or even really driven a manual car. Now I can drive a bike. I’m pretty happy. I made a few good friends. The guys instructing were pretty cool and easy to talk to. I hope that your school continues to grow as you obviously deserve. And I hope to keep in touch with you guys. Thanks for everything! Go Survival Riders go!” Marianne S.
“I learned how to ride a bike from scratch in 7 days. I was impressed that ProRide did that. I was impressed that I did it. I learned a lot of valuable skills, which I know I would have never learned on my own. The experience and knowledge I acquired is priceless. Overall, I give ProRide 10 out of 10. Thanks.” Scott W.
“It was pretty exciting. Filled with many valuable survival skills. Having two professional experienced instructors on hand allowed me to see different riding styles and approach. Matt’s hands on with the figure eight (with myself riding on the back) helped me visualize the appropriate steps. Riding with Frank on the road was a thrill. He also gave me good feedback on what I need to work on. Daniel was so helpful in explaining why I should do things a certain way. Thank you very much. I am sure I will come back to visit and tell all my friends!” Justin L.
“I was very happy with the course and would recommend it to my friends if they wanted to learn how to ride. Special thanks to Matt. His laid back teaching style helped me to be more relaxed, which makes it easier to learn. ” Kelly S.
“I found this training program to be a very comprehensive and quick training program, which is probably the best because you don’t have a chance to get bored or complacent. The learning techniques kept me sharp and ready for anything. This course was kept interesting because of the way it moved along smoothly and in a logical manner. Adult education at it’s finest! Best $750 I ever spent, good work guys.” Danny W.
“In an activity that can be potentially dangerous, I always felt safe and in control. The instructors were unbelievably helpful in learning to ride as well as providing a fun, memorable experience.” John F.
“I would highly recommend the ProRide Motorcycle Training course to anyone wanting to learn the right way to ride. I knew very little about motorcycles except but had a desire to own and be able to ride one. I feel quite comfortable with my new skills and take pride in my “survival rider skills”. ‘If you want to be the best at what you do, go to the best to learn from!’ P.s.:. The grandkids think it’s cool for Gramma to ride a bike.” Betty R.
“I was very impressed with the overall aspect of the course. I spent 25 years driving on the road and still learned new survival skills. I thought I knew it all; you guys proved that to be untrue.” Shane W.
“ProRide has not only taught me to be a safe rider but a more intelligent rider. The fun and freedom factor really hit home with me. My wife took her course [at another school] and was jealous when I told her everything I learned at ProRide. I couldn’t stop bragging. I’m now sure I made the right choice because these guys are teaching skills that aren’t being taught elsewhere. I would recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about riding a motorcycle. This course provides you with the skills and knowledge of how to be a safe rider.” Mark G.
“ProRide Motorcycle Training has developed a fantastic training program presented by super trainers (Daniel, Matt, Chris, Frank) who really care about teaching you that having fun on a motorcycle is being smart on a motorcycle. Riding a motorcycle won’t be fun if you don’t survive. The training program is interactive and hands on. You’re made to feel part of a team. The program pushes you, in a good way, because there is a lot to learn. It’s a hell of a lot of fun and it might save your life someday. I had a blast and I know I’m a better motorcyclist. Thanks ProRide. I’m a proud survival rider!”Christopher P.
“It has been fun learning something entirely new and exciting. I will miss coming here and riding and the friends who were along for the ride.*boohoo* I keep dreaming of orange cones, hehe. PRORIDE IS AWESOME!!!”Jessica V.
“I can’t imagine taking to the streets without some kind of professional instruction and the guys at ProRide provided just that professional, knowledgeable and intelligent motorcycle instruction.” David H.
“Excellent!! The class structure was great and the course gave me the knowledge and skills to be a confident rider. I would recommend the ProRide course to everyone planning to ride a motorcycle!” Derek L.
“The most amazing thing about ProRide is that it can take you from Level zero to a fully confident rider in 7 short days. You can come into the program scared of any bike over 250cc and leave wanting a 750cc. I would recommend this course to any rider or even car drivers who need help seeing bikers.” Gus P.
“The ProRide Motorcycle Training course is very thorough and challenging and is well organized. It is designed to take an uninitiated rider to a reasonable level of competence in a short period (7days). There is excellent theory and practical experience provided by highly trained and caring instructors.” Peter G.
“I came to ProRide on the recommendation of Carter Honda. It exceeded all my expectations as a very comprehensive rider training and survival program for motorcyclists. I would recommend it to everyone who has never ridden before and those who need a tune-up. In my opinion, it is money well spent and a great experience I’ll never forget.” James R.
“Hmmm? ProRide changed my life? Maybe! It was worth every penny (and more). It was hard work but it made the road riding much easier. Daniel, Matt and the team are excellent instructors. Patient, awesome people skills, excellent teaching skills. It’s hard for me to imagine anyone riding (and riding safely) without this kind of training. I feel like I’ve been at camp for a week. All I can think about is motorcycles. I’m going to miss coming here everyday. But I’ll be back to visit, for sure!” Tyler T.
“I was very impressed with the depth of the course. You maintained a good balance between theory and practice and the skills development was intense and appropriate. The gear- bikes, helmets, etc were in excellent condition and a pleasure to use. I fell prepared to ride with an understanding and awareness that will enable me to stay safe and enjoy the experience.” Julie S.
“I started this course as a total rookie. I had never been on a motorcycle before. This course gave me the confidence and desire to become a full time rider. My two instructors, Matt and Frank, have what it takes to teach riding motorcycles and they do it with passion. They go out of their way to make sure that everyone is safe and is having an awesome time at ProRide. I am sad it’s over. It was one of those things that surpass your expectation as far as quality. I will, and I have recommended it to my friends. Good work guys! Keep it up.” April L.
“By far one of the smartest things I’ve ever done in contrast to one of the stupidest, which was riding around town with just a permit waiting for my luck to run out. In just a week, the instructors got across years of riding experience and observations into a clear, effective program. The best part was that Daniel, Matt and Nick are passionate about riding and actually care about their students. Highly recommended!” Johnny P.
“I am so pleased with ProRide’s overall training that I would recommend it to friends and family without hesitation. My confidence on a bike has increased 100% upon completion of this program. Thank you so much guys for you kindness and knowledge.” Trevor S.
“After having ridden on and off for over 30 years, I came away with a wonderful feeling of confidence and the knowledge that I had learned the correct way to survive while on my bike. The instructors did an excellent job of training even the newest riders with absolutely no skills how to ride with skill and confidence. The attitude that they bring to their work makes them the kind of people that I would like to actually hire and I am extremely demanding of my staff.” Scott D.
“My experience with ProRide was excellent. I would recommend this training program to anyone who was interested in learning to ride a motorcycle. The instructors were fun, knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and trustworthy. I also felt that the price was right for all that I got out of it. Thanks so much for everything.” Kim C.
“My ProRide experience has given me the knowledge and confidence to ride safely in all traffic situations. The friendly and honest instruction by Matt, Frank and Daniel made it easy to learn.” Fardeen H.
