BMW CBT/DAS course now in England

Great news- you no longer have to travel to Wales to participate in a BMW Course.

I have just completed a 4 day DAS with BMW training in Royston.
It may be useful to friends/colleagues who are seeking CBT DAS etc -I haven't seen it listed on the net yet so I'll post my thoughts here.

The premises are BMW "branded" , smart and warm with corporate colours, posters etc . We were equipped with 2012 Scuberth helmets , brand new 2012 Tourance Jackets and top end BMW Gloves/boots ( I left my Hein Gericke stuff in my kitbag !).

The bikes were also new with a choice of new G650GS or F650GS. They really made the tests straightforward , easy to ride so you could concentrate on your skills.
The Instructor Ian Biederman remained calm throughout all our silly , repeated errors . He is a huge BMW enthusiast and a well respected experienced instructor of the highest calibre. 

I really had a superb time , despite heavy rain each day . If you meet someone who is considering getting a licence , perhaps a friend, neighbour or colleague - then you could point them to the website;

Finally I should say I have no link with them , I'm just a happy and impressed customer. Stu Watson

BMW prices

Thanks Preunit, interesting reading. By the time you add CBT and test fees the prices are about £300 above the norm. However I'm sure that the bikes will be shiny new and have all damage repaired every time they get dropped by novices.......unlike normal training schools who can't afford to keep changing bent levers and scuffed engine cases :wink:

BMW DAS prices

£669 for 4 day DAS without test fees.

Brilliant value , considering the access to brand new equipment and also the increased percentage pass rates.
The other factor for me was not wanting to lose days "off " work , or days away from the family.
You can sit Mod 1 and Mod 2 on the final day - just a  fantastic package.
As you can see, I was very impressed , maybe others could post their thoughts here too?

Increased pass rate.....

What do you :huh:mean by increased pass rate?

There is no reason that you couldn't take mod 1 & mod 2 on the same day with any school - you take the risk of losing mod 2 test fee if you fail mod 1 though:wink:
