I was initially really nervous about taking this class; one because I was the only girl in the class and because I am a little petite girl. But once class got started all my worries were quickly erased! The instructor was wonderful,thorough, and patient. I was so excited to get out on that course and start the motorcycle! Once on the motorcycle both instructors made sure any questions, worries, and concerns were address and answered. They spend the necessary with each individual and give important feedback. Once I get a motorcycle I am definitely going in to take the course to get practice one on one time with my motorcycle. I have recommended this class to any and all who show an interest in riding and I love bragging about the fact that I took the class and received my license.
I recently attended the Basic Rider Course. Coming in with no Motorcycle experience, I felt that the instructors were great at explaining and being patient. I know that I still have more to learn, but I feel confident in what was taught. I would recommend TEAM Arizona to anyone looking for a motorcycle, or anyone who wants to improve their technique.
I just took the MSF Basic Rider Course this past weekend at the Gilbert headquarters. If you're new to motorcycling and/or looking to get your M endorsement, look no further. These are a great group of people and exceptional ride instructors. I had never been on a motorcycle before and by the end of the second day I was confident on basic maneuvers and handling on a motorcycle. There are numerous on the bike exercises that you incrementally build upon over two days of instruction. Rider coaches give excellent feedback after every exercise to help ensure you ride the best you can. The course is invaluable.
I've taken The Basic Rider Course, Advanced Riding Techniques, and multiple Skills Under the Lights courses with TEAM (all in the Gilbert location). They are AMAZING! I started off never having been the driver of a motorcycle and I'm now confident in my ability to control my bike as well as watch out for the people around me. The best part is going through many levels of training (my husband who has been riding 15+ years was able to come to Skills and learn a few things also). We've sent multiple friends/family members to TEAM and will continue to do so!
I took the Basic Rider Course this October 2015. I had been wanting to get my license for a while and was referred this class by several people. It did not disappoint. My instructor, Jim Barnett, was awesome and he really made me feel comfortable while I learned the basic skills of motorcycle riding. I can't wait to take the Advanced Rider Course in the future. I definitely recommend the Basic Rider Course if you are thinking about getting a license. Totally worth it!! Thanks TEAM ARIZONA!!!
I took the beginner rider course, and got my motorcycle endorsement after completing the class! Such an amazing course for people that have never been on a motorcycle, or know the first thing about riding! They broke it down, made it simple to learn, and it was awesome to not only watch myself excel at riding, but to watch other new beginner riders grow confidence with their riding skills. Would recommend this course to everyone, whether they are a beginner rider, or experienced, and looking to fine tune and learn more things about riding. My husband didn't want me to ride, but after seeing the skills I learned in this course, he was glad and relieved that I took the time to take the course and learn more about riding.
This was a great course and I would recommend it to everyone who is currently riding or new riders. The instructors are very good and take the time to explain exactly what you need and help you develop your skills as a rider. It's worth the price for the class and I'm really glad I took the course. I definitely feel more confident as a rider and learned a ton of info. If you haven't done it yet, you should. Totally worth it!
I have taken two courses with TEAM Arizona last year and loved each one. I started off by taking the Intro course in January as a gift from a family member that knew I was interested in getting my motorcycle endorsement. The instructor and facility were amazing. I returned a few months later to take the Basic Riders Course that allowed me to get my endorsement without worrying about taking a test at the MVD, very helpful!! As soon as I can carve out time to go back I would love to take some of the advanced riding courses.
I attended an Intro into Motorcycling class there within the last month. Our instructor, John, was super patient, extremely helpful, and a wealth of knowledge. I had developed an itch to learn how to ride a motorcycle, and this class has only barely whetted my appetite. I'm definitely looking forward to the Basic Rider Course to get my motorcycle endorsement. And beyond that, the other classes available can only help me get better. Super friendly folks.
I took the Basic Rider Course about a year ago. It was my first time on a bike with the handle bars in my hands and the instructors made me feel calm and in control through the entire duration of the class. All of the instructors had years, if not decades, of experience and shared first-hand accounts of when their training had helped them get out of a scary situation at least once, so that was reassuring. The classes are very well organized and at the end of it, I felt confident about taking my test to get my license. Oh yeah, I passed and I'm looking forward to returning to TEAM Arizona for the Advanced Rider Course.
I needed to suddenly learn how to ride a motorcycle on account of my car dying, and still needing to make the 10 mile drive to work. I was able to slip into a class in Gilbert, and over the course of the three short days, I went from 0 knowledge to feeling reasonably safe driving home to Tucson. The pacing of the course was fantastic, neither overwhelming nor too slow to the point of being boring. The instructors have a real and palpable love of riding and it shows. I would strongly consider returning to TEAM Arizona for more advanced courses.
I took the Basic Rider Course and a little over a year later I took the three day course to receive my endorsement. Absolutely loved it! The riding instructor was patient knowledgeable and genuinely concerned about all of us learning correctly so we stay safe! Would highly recommend Team Arizona to anyone considering getting on a bike. I think it has helped me even as a passenger on my husbands bike!
I took the basic rider course back in July and can't say enough how beneficial it was. I enrolled in the course to obtain my motorcycle endorsement for my drivers license but gained much more. It not only gives you in depth training on how to properly operate a motorcycle technically, but also teaches you how do so in a way that keeps you safe while riding. All the coaches were helpful, patient, friendly, and gave in depth answers to any and all of my questions. I look forward to taking the next level courses they offer in the near future, and recommend anyone interested in learning to ride take this course before they start!
I wanted to get my endorsement after years of riding without one. I thought that this would be some lame drivers ed state mandated POS time and money suck. I was really wrong. I wish I would have done this years ago. The facility and practice ranges were great. The instructors were amazing. If you have been putting off getting legal... If you have never had professional training... If you just want to get better at riding... I will be going back! Thanks Nick, Greg and TEAM Gilbert!
The professionalism of everyone who works at TEAM Arizona is unbelievable! I had a customer service issue and I worked with Craig. He followed up when he said he would and resolved my situation with ease. If you are in need of a motorcycle training class STOP and look no further. The staff and instructors are passionate about the work they do and they will treat you right! I am thankful of the respect and kindness they gave me. It is good to know that there are amazing people like the staff at TEAM Arizona!
My husband, Robert Swank and I recently took two of your riding courses, the Introduction to Riding in Scottsdale AZ and the Basic Rider course in Peoria AZ. We were so pleased with both courses and feel much more prepared to go out and ride safely and confidently. I would highly recommend Team Arizona to anyone wishing to learn to ride or to hone their skills.
Just attended the course and all I can say is holy cow the wealth of knowledge these instructors have is amazing plus they make it a fun and enjoyable learning environment. Jim Barnett is amazing and I bought his book he published also looking forward to reading it when it arrives and taking more advanced courses at the Glendale location in the future. Thanks again Jim and Jerry cya soon.
I didn't think that you could learn how to ride a motorcycle in such a short time. The instructors were amazing and well organized. I had a class of about 12 people and somehow they managed to give each of us special feedback and take time to learn our individual strengths and weaknesses. At the end of the course we were all a bunch of confident riders, the hesitation and nervousness most of us had in the beginning was gone. They encouraged us to speed up and trust the bike. My group had three instructors, Erick, Paul, and Kim. They were amazing and you will be super lucky to get them. They kept the course fun while also stressing safety. If a 5'0ft tall little lady like myself could pass, so can you!
Wow! Had such a fun couple of days this weekend taking my Basic Rider Course with these guys. I rarely write positive reviews, but the guys n girls here at TEAM Arizona truly deserve a huge pat on the back. The instructors were some of the best / friendly people you'll ever meet. I went from a novice rider, who had only ever ridden quads - to being confident to ride my own bike, in 15 hours of written & riding based training over 2 days. I now feel a lot safer about taking my bike out on the streets of Arizona. Thank you so much TEAM Arizona. I will most certainly be back to hone my skills in the future.
Bill, Tealdo, Morton and Ron were fantastic - all first class riders and instructors. Patient, non-judgmental, and able to answer questions in a way that builds confidence. They are also no-nonsense when it comes to your safety and other's. What a great experience I had. I've taken Advanced Rider Techniques, Total Control 1 and 2, and Sunday was my first Track Day after taking their class. They demystified the entire experience, set us up for success, and the individualized coaching was fantastic. Not too much information is thrown at you, one bite at a time, we all dramatically improved our riding. From Vision, to Body Position, to Entry speed, Turning points, Apex and the Exit - we covered the most important things to be safer, faster, more stable, in control, and PREDICTABLE! I absolutely, 100%, without reservation, recommend their classes for anyone who wants to be a better rider...oh yeah, and YOU WILL HAVE FUN in the process! Thanks TEAM Arizona!
All in all, the price was good, the class's were beneficial and well with it. I went from never riding a motorcycle, (it only took three weeks from my first class) to having a motor cycle endorsement and having my own bike! And attending the confident riders class. My first class was at 5225 Buena School Blvd, Sierra Vista Arizona 85635 on Sunday 18 March 2012 at 7:30am it was a four hour introductory class. Loved it. It was beneficial to understanding the basic application of riding, it's a good way of knowing whether or not this is something you want to pursue. It also prepares you in more than one way for the next class you take, which is the test. Taking this four hour class really helped me pass my motorcycle endorsement the first time around. I received my motorcycle endorsement on the 6th April 2012 with T.E.A.M. Arizona Tucson Now at 7501 East on 22 nd street Tucson AZ 85710 it was a full two day class starting Thursday 5 th April and finished Friday 6 th April 2012. I took a confident riders course with T.E.A.M. Arizona in Sierra again at 5225 Buena School Blvd, Sierra Vista Arizona 85635 on Saturday 12 May 2012 at 7:30am. This was my third class with them. I rode my Harley-Davidson 2009 sportster . I received my card that will give me a discount with my insurance. How cool is that? So, do I recommend taking any of the class's I would have to say yes. It's peace of mind, being safe is my number one objective! The first five months of riding is the most critical time, as that's the time most accidents are more than likely to happen. Furthermore, I am looking forward to taking my advanced Class, there are two of them.
This class is AMAZING and they teach you so much about how to ride and how to ride safely. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about getting their endorsement. I was able to learn from Andrea and Kevin at the Scottsdale location. These two instructors are extremely professional and they have patience with every rider. Thanks TEAM AZ!
