Reputation + Quality Training
You will hear us mention ‘Quality training’ often, as T.S.M. has never needed to offer anything other than this, because we believe that what people want from a motorcycle training school is to pass their motorcycle test. That’s it!
…then there are companies with staff specifically trained & equipped at the tracks to offer you this. If you want advanced training, then organisations such as I.A.M or R.o.S.P.A. can provide reputable, quality-assured training & testing with nationally recognised, insurance-reducing qualifications at extremely competitive prices!
Taunton School of Motorcycling commenced training in 1996 and thanks to its reputation has continued to thrive in its core business: quality training in riding a motorcycle.
A family run business, with the emphasis on quality riding tuition, more than just training to pass the test.
We offer 3 types of motorcycle course
Each course offers a Full Motorbike Licence, except for the CBT

I can only think of one word to sum up my experience with TSM – Faultless. Not a word I'd use to describe my riding before Tracey got hold of me. The relaxed, calm, and welcoming atmosphere she works so hard to provide cut straight through the day-one nerves and before I knew it I was out and riding better than I'd ever managed before.
While undertaking my 6 day direct access with T.S.M. I felt I received an excellent standard of training enabling me to pass my test comfortably in the end. I had some previous motorcycle experience but T.S.M. took my skills to a much higher level and with the advice I received I only hope that my skills will continue to improve. Personally I feel that T.S.M. don't just teach how to ride a motorcycle but how to ride one skillfully and most importantly safely.
Having experienced taster days at other motorcycling schools, I arrived at TSM expecting a similar sort of teaching; too much encouragement, not enough reality. I quickly learnt that Tracey has a very different style. Yes, of course the encouragement was there but it was always swiftly followed with honesty and realism; if there was something I was struggling with, it was openly pointed out and discussed so that I knew precisely where I had to improve.
Learning a new skill at my age was never going to be straight forward, and having watched many younger riders sail through their courses with little effort I soon came to see first hand actually how good the school was. For my own part, I needed more effort to push me through and thanks to the skill, patience and flexibility of the school my result was assured. What Tracey provides is a completely relaxed learning environment that could take a 42 year old man from CBT level to full direct access license with relative ease. As I work a difficult shift pattern, my availability was always potentially problematic but Tracey managed to create a course that not only was built around my working life but also catered for my rate of development.
