After attaining my first qualification as a DVSA motorcycle instructor back in 2006 it didn’t take long for me to start dreaming of owning my own school. Through the years I worked at various ATB’s gaining experience as I went, I had a few setbacks along the way as we all do, but despite what life threw my way I’m here 10 years later.
My name is Liam Bradley and along with my wife Sue, we own and manage Chorley Yamaha Bradley Rider Training, born 1970 in the Chorley area and lived most of my life in the area I guess you could say I’m a local lad.
We are the only accredited fully backed Yamaha rider training school in the UK, yes the UK, so that tells you the quality of the facility’s we provide here at Chorley Yamaha Bradley Rider Training. We are also the only ATB to be located in the Chorley area.
Considering the facility’s and the association with Yamaha you would think that our prices would be a little expensive, but in fact we are 1 of the most competitively priced ATB’s in the area.
Chorley Yamaha Bradley Rider Training is a family run business, myself as site manager, my wife Sue doing the most important job of co-coordinating the instructors, booking the test & making sure every student gets the training they pay for. And my Daughter Elle on telephones, website management, and facebook. (where would we be without facebook) .
My instructors are a key part of the operation at Chorley Yamaha Bradley Rider Training I’ve known them all for a number of years and my respect for them cannot be described. They always remain committed no matter how cold or wet it gets, no matter how much a student maybe finding an aspect of training difficult my instructors will stick it out and always give you 110%.
At Chorley Yamaha Bradley Rider Training we always aim to give our students the best experience, from that first question we answer when you first call us, the brand new fleet of Yamaha bikes MT07’s & YBR125’s modern, practical and stylish motorcycle clothing to borrow free of charge, excellent classroom facility’s & and a kettle that is constantly switched on. Not to mention over 100 years of biking experience from our instructors, a bottomless pit of enthusiasm & constant encouragement to keep your moral high.
The aim of a CBT is to teach the student the BASIC skills needed to keep safe whilst on the road.
If you are under 24 and have had a full A2 licence for at least 2 years you can do the progressive Direct Access to move up to a full unrestricted licence.
Once you have completed your CBT and are a minimum age of 19, you will need to take further training. If you train and test on a a 395cc and above you will be able to ride a motorcycle that has a maximum power output of 46.6bhp.
