Thank you for visiting our website. As one of the UK’s most established motorcycle rider training schools we have much to offer you. You might be starting out on the journey into biking or, you recognise the value of investing in yourself to develop your existing skills and knowledge.
If you’re aiming to advance your skills we have a great association with Williams Automobiles who are main dealers for the historic Norton motorcycle brand. Based in Horton, Chipping Sodbury and with access to some of our advanced riding routes we can meet you there. If you would like to venture further south into Somerset and Devon we can do that too.
We have great facilities for you if you’re aiming to get your full motorcycle licence; a dedicated classroom, modern equipment and, our riders can practise all the Module 1 manoeuvres including the 32 mph Hazard Avoidance exercise at our training centre in Clevedon near Bristol.
And, if you’re thinking you’d like to become an instructor, we provide all the training you’ll need to teach at any level you choose.
Have a great journey and if there’s anything we can assist you with just call or email.
Just got home from a day out on the road with Paul from get cornering. This is a brilliant experience and day out on the bikes. Young, old, experienced rider or not you should do this. I’ve been riding for 49 years but this is one of best you can get. Paul is very knowledgeable about biking in a safe fast way. He will tell you and show how to ride in a fast safe way. But not only that. He is very likeable and had some chats about bikes from bygone days. I enjoyed it as much as any thing I’ve done on two wheels including track days. Paul thanks again for a brilliant day.- Bill van Leuwen
I had training for MOD 1 and MOD 2 with Gordano motorcycle training. The training was done to a high standard and road and rider safety is is prioritised throughout.
I passed both tests without fault and this is largely down to the training I received.
Thank you for a challenging but ultimately rewarding few days.
Passed my Mod1 and Mod2 today after completing the DAS course. Paul and Chris are incredible instructors and I would 100% recommend them! Endless knowledge and they put full commitment into helping you, not only to pass but to put the foundations in to keep learning and be a competent rider. Many thanks to Paul and Chirs, and will see you again for the enhanced rider scheme!- Karl Doul
I’ve just passed my DAS course with this school. what a great week ,excellent training and what a laugh. I’m going to go back for my advanced training.
Once I’d past on the ride back Paul said he would appreciate feedback on the FB page but unfortunately the rating only went as high as five star. In all honesty he hit the nail on the head. I had trained with a school in Bristol and failed my Mod 1 but with Paul I passed both modules first time, and felt calm throughout. I never witnessed him even get close to getting annoyed, which with my riding at the start was quite amazing. Can not recommend this guy and the school highly enough. A great experience. Thanks Paul- Josh Boyle
Have just successfully completed my full licence with Paul, from CBT to Mod 1 and Mod 2. As someone with no riding experience at all, the tuition from Paul throughout was perfect. No harsh words, shouting, swearing or unnecessary criticism. The practise day for the Mod 1 was fantastic at settling the nerves and putting me in a good standing for the test itself.
I cannot recommend Paul and GMTS highly enough. The tuition and bikes are second to none.
Completing my A unrestricted license from CBT through to passing Modules 1 & 2 in just under 2 months, having the confidence and correct tuition to achieve this was imperative.
Paul, the instructor, provided me with all the skills and learning I needed without pressure.
Each day I rode with no more than 3 other people, so getting 1 to 1 tuition on a regular basis helped me tremendously.
With the new facilities Paul now has, well maintained bikes to ride and good company.. Worth every penny.
5 stars do not even touch the standard of training from Paul and his team at GMTS!
Very professional and knowledgeable yet extremely friendly at the same time. You come away feeling like you have known Paul for years!
Paul does not teach you how to ride a bike to get you through the CBT – he teaches you how to ride a bike for life. The equipment is excellent and you are taught all about the bike and how it works not just chucked on one.
Cannot recommend Paul enough- fantastic value for money and the patience of a saint!!
Thank you Paul
Had a brilliant day today under Tony’s expert tuition and managed to pass CBT. Highly recommended thank you.- Paul Thomas
Absolutely great, Paul give concise instruction encouraging you to constantly assess your own riding! I would recomend Gordano to anyone!- George Watson
Excellent day with Paul doing CBT. Never ridden a bike before, Paul is a great instructor, taking things at a very nice pace with no pressure. Looking forward to continuing my training.- Ben Goldstraw
Fantastic service provided by Paul, Chris and Rob from Gordano Motorcycle Training, passed my Mod 1 and Mod 2 today after taking the recommended training from them.
Friendly service and great training from start to finish.
Completed one of Paul’s Get Cornering Advanced Riding days during June 2019.
Perfectly set out course that myself and friend Tony took lots away from !. My biking has taken me all over the world and have 34 years continuous riding under my belt and courses like this just show up how we can all learn new things.A great guy to work with .
Fantastic team 5 star all day long, from mod 1 training with Chris to spending hours on the road with Paul for mod 2.
They went above and beyond to ensure we passed first time. Great set of instructors.
Will defiantly recommend to any and everyone who wants to hit the open road and gain the freedom of a motorcycle license whatever your experience they will get you to where you need to be.
I cannot recommend Paul and GMTS enough, 5 stars doesn’t cover it.
I completed my CBT with Paul just over 18 months ago, after a 18 year hiatus from my scooter riding days. I completed a two day course which left me feeling confident about riding on the road, and was safe in the mind that I could have returned and taken an extra day or more if I hadn’t been.
Following a year of commuting and creeping up Avon Way on my 125, I decided to go for my full license. I had no hesitation on who I wanted to learn from. Lessons are not just enjoyable, but very interesting, with every aspect of what you need to know to ride safely backed up by a story or some knowledge that adds context.
I was far from faultless in my lessons, and Paul dealt with my shortcomings and mistakes with a calmness that left you feeling it was only a matter of time before it would come together, even right up to a day before my final test. I should also mention the equipment is, like Paul, first class and the bikes have been purposefully selected so they are comfortable and easy to ride.
I am now sat at my laptop, having passed my Mod 2 test, looking my first big bike, and I cannot thank Paul enough for getting me there.
Will definitely be back to take on the Get Cornering course once I have my bike!!
I have just completed my CBT over two days one to one training with Paul. I had not been on a motorcycle for about 26 years! Paul was very patient and knowledgeable. I was learning on a 600cc by lunchtime on day 1. I look forward to continuing my training with him. Thanks Paul.- Matthew Aldridge
“Maximum safety, minimum fuss”- Robert Lawrence , Triumph Tiger 800 -
Fantastic day with Paul on the Get Cornering course. Structure and pace of the day was spot on covering theory, demos, practice and constructive feedback. Enjoyed the routes around Cheddar Gorge too. Highly recommended!- Harj Singh
I really like Paul’s encouraging, easy manner. He’s not really like an instructor, he makes you feel more like an equal, a friend.- Jessica Quayomi , Yamaha XJ6 -
Paul quietly hones your ability and builds your confidence. Well worth the money and I would advise anyone into bikes to treat yourself.- Mel Gloyn , Ducati Monster -
Without hesitation I would very much recommend the day to anyone.- Martyn Nattress , Yamaha R6 -
I passed my IAM test some time ago but this day is on a different level.- Andrew Boulton , Honda CBF1000 -
Amazing day Paul. We had a great time and your style of tuition made us feel like friends.- Steve Breakwell , Honda CB 900 -
It was fantastic Paul and a humbling experience to ride with you. You are a professional in every sense and I really like your style of coaching.- Les Trudgian , Triumph Tiger -
