“Great Experience. I had experience with offroad biking and wanted to learn more about street riding. In the classroom Diane was very enthusiastic and informative. On riding days George and his staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and quickly pointed out what I was doing wrong so I could change my way of riding. The experience was more than I expected and I found the staff to be not only knowledgeable motorcycle lovers but also very sincere about seeing you become a better rider. They all took the time to take me aside and explain what I was doing right and what I needed to work on. Great Job!”from Steven of Lynbrook, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“You guys were awesome, you all took the time to individually help with anything that needed explaining, and time to get the hang of things. I highly recommend The Big Apple Motorcycle School to anyone who wants to learn how to ride. I was a beginner and now I’m riding my own bike. THE BEST TEAM EVER!”from Jamelah of Long Island, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“As an experienced rider I wasn’t planning on learning that much. George and Diane do an amazing job and helped me with bad habits that I’ve picked up over the years. I would recommend this class to new and experienced riders.”from Wilson of Brentwood, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The Big Apple Motorcycle School is an amazing course all around. The instructors really try to give everyone as much individual attention as they need for each exercise. I definitely suggest this course to anyone who wants to ride regardless of if you’ve never even sat on a bike or you’re a seasoned rider trying to get their license.”from Dylan of Massapequa, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I had a great time and learned so much. I was a bit nervous at first, but after taking the advice I was able to warm up and learn so much.”from an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I have completed the Big Apple Motorcycle School’s Basic Rider Course and received my license. I have learned a lot and came out learning of some bad habits I had been riding with.
Also, did not know that helmets had an expiration dates. Now I know I need a new helmet as I had mine for many, many years. So glad I went and just did not go to DMV and take the motorcycle test as I would have passed, but would not have gotten the techniques that I needed to correct and just to be more aware of your surroundings as you are riding.”
from Elizabeth of Farmingdale, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“O how to begin! From the moment you step in for the classroom portion of the course, you are met with the hospitality of a very exited staff ready to teach and engage their students. Felice did an outstanding job at teaching the class in a very serious yet entertaining way. When making it to the second and third day of the actual motorcycle course yet again you are met with the uplifting spirit of the coaches, coaches who always emphasize safety over all. There is no moment during these two riding days you are not bombarded with information though, you are skillfully taught the exercises you will partake in and are encouraged to ask as many questions as needed and are always reminded to maintain proper safety as well as positive attitude. All of the techniques that are so skillfully taught to you with a bit of attention from yourself will culminate into you passing the course. Listen to your instructors and you will surely succeed in passing the course. Oh and one more thing! When your coach tells you to be like an OWL and HOOT make sure you HOOT! I know I do now. You will understand what I mean when you take the step forward in taking this course. I want to thank the owners who work so hard to make this course possible and thank my instructors for being so professional and outright AWESOME!”from Karlos of Long Island, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Great knowledge, professional and expert training.”from Tony of Massapequa, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Learning how to ride a motorcycle was not only fun but a challenge that I felt I needed. I have never been the type of person to try new things, but after taking this class, my prespective and mindset has changed. Even though I was a little nervous towards the earlier stages of the class, I started to feel more and more comfortable as time went on. I have walked away with an idea that the more you put yourself in uncomfortable situations, the more you will grow as a person. I highly encourage those that are interested in riding motorcycles to give it a try. Do not hold off on an opportunity that could change your life for the better in some way or at the very least, say that you tried something new. That in it of itself is a great success and something to be proud of. All this being said, I will hopefully be getting a motorcycle at some point in the near future. Not only that, I might be trying some new things such as skydiving, mountain climbing, etc, thanks to my great experience at this class.”from Ammar of Jericho, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“What I learned in this class I wouldn’t have been able to pick up on on my own. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Upon completion of this course I feel that with a little bit more of on the road practice I will be able to ride to my first bike week in Daytona in 2018.”from Donovan of East Northport, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I am an Executive Vice Chairman of one of the largest commercial real estate firms in the world with over 60,000 employees. I was very impressed with all aspects of this program and I recommend all drivers should experience this type of education as it would improve all drivers abilities.”from Patrick of Sayville, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Awesome school, would highly recommend to anyone trying to get on a bike and start riding. Best part is if you pass the skills evaluation you walk away with a road test waiver! George and Diane definitely did a great job familiarizing us with the bikes before getting moving, A+ 10/10 would do again”from Nick of Westbury, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“From never having ridden a bike to being able to successfully complete the skills test. This class is very difficult but completely worth it.”from an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“This is the best way to get the basic knowledge and hands on instruction for first time riders and eliminates the hassle of going to DMV with your own motorcycle and a car to [take] the DMV road test.”from Jesse of Huntington Station, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I gained a lot of fundamentals from your course. Made me realize things I have been doing wrong and made me an overall better rider.”from Jose of Uniondale, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I don’t have enough good things to say about the instructor for our class, Scott. He was the right amount of positive and confidence-building, while also focusing us on the areas that need improvement. One thing I think cannot be stressed enough is that, for beginners, this class is just step one. George and Diane provided some great insight and advice at the end of the class to make sure we make smart choices in our infancy as riders. I look forward to the chance to come back with my own bike one day and learn more from them.”from Carrie of Long Island City, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“First off I would like to send another big THANK YOU to Diane, George, and the rest of the BAMS instructors. Before taking this BRC, I had absolutely ZERO experience on or with a motorcycle. Diane was a great teacher for the 5 hour safety course, she made the class a little more fun and less painful for a friday night class. Both Diane and George were very nice and fantastic teachers on both days of riding. I was a little nervous because I had no riding experience but their expertise, patience, skills, and knowledge got me through each obstacle and skill. They will call you out on each and every mistake and correct you because they want you to learn properly and safely. They will help you to the best of their ability from the start to the end of each day and will not give you less than 110%. I honestly wouldn’t pick anybody else to learn from. I walked into this course with zero experience and walked away with an unforgettable experience, new friends, and a road test waiver. I am definitely going to look into scheduling a few more lessons with BAMS soon and would highly recommend this school to everyone!”from Timothy of Queens, an August 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“1. The instructors were not “good”- they were outstanding (thank you George and Angelo). 2. The only reason I said stopping was least valued exercise is that I practice it and not because it shouldn’t be in the course! It is a valuable skill. I give your course an A Plus Plus Plus!”from Len of Norwalk, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse2 Skills Practice (for experienced riders).

“There was no exercise that was not important! Survey required one on drop down. Bad habits are picked up and should be addressed every now and then! Even driving home, noted the specific techniques taught. Never stop learning.”from Ellen of Norwalk, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse2 Skills Practice (for experienced riders).

“It was a very educational course for beginners or students that haven’t driven in a while. I know what to look out for while on the road now.”from Juan of Huntington, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Thank you so much for the excellent instruction and coaching! Literally the best coaching and instruction you can get. I had never been on a motorcycle before the class and now I feel comfortable enough to practice what I’ve learned and take it to the next level. I am highly satisfied with the experience and I would do it again and I will recommend BAMS to others.”from Jeremy of Huntington Station, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“You take more risk while riding a motorcycle so taking a safety class is necessary and may save your life. They taught me knowledge that I’ve never thought about while driving. Well done. Highly recommended!”from Xinghan of Jackson Heights, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“It was a great experience and very hard few days, hours of riding and a lot of information. I feel much more confident about my skills and very grateful for the time spent. The Staff is very professional and help you to achieve your goals. Thank you, all.”from Natan of East Northport, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Overall I think the course was well worth the money, riders should just have a realistic expectation on what can be taught in 10 to 15 hours. I would highly recommend this to anybody who is interested in learning to ride a motorcycle to see if they enjoy it or not and it taught great Foundation skills.”from Bill of Long Island, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I met a lot of nice people , great experience, I would definitely recommend taking this course .”from David of Huntington Station, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Fantastic course to learn riding in such a short amount of time. The riding days are jam packed with lots of lessons and gave me a greater understanding of the skills that I need to ride safely. The course is mentally and physically challenging, but by far one of the best things that I’ve done. Fellow students were encouraging to one another and also gave great feedback from a students perspective. The instructors were motivating and pushed you to try your best and see results, even if only minor at times. It was a fun atmosphere and made it incredibly exciting to learn the ins and outs of riding. I highly reccomend Big Apple to anyone, with or without experience. Well worth the money and time. Many thanks to all the staff at Big Apple!”from John of Bellport, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

In the retest a week later I actually got a perfect score, thanks to Diane, George and all the Big Apple Instructors.”from Raja of Wantagh, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The training was great and the instructors were amazing. I cannot emphasize enough how willing to help everyone was, and how out of the way everyone went to make sure you were safe and comfortable. I had absolutely no experience riding a motorcycle before this class, but now I have my motorcycle license. I went into this course thinking it would be a breeze, maybe I should take an advanced course and skip the basics. Absolutely not. I learned the hard way you need to put a lot of work into this course, but it is very worth it for what you will get out of it.”from a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I cannot say enough about Big Apple Motorcycle school. The instructors were very accommodating & approachable. The lead instructor was friendly but firm.

Great experience.”from Owen of Bellport, a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I had an overall enjoyable and knowledge filled experience with MSF Big Apple Motorcycle School. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in my skill evaluation the first time, but I was welcomed back with open arms to try the skill evaluation again and passed with a perfect score a couple of weeks later. I am grateful to have had this awesome riding experience where I not only learned how to ride and operate a motorcycle safely, but I also learned to have more patience, better self-assessment skills, and that is important to not give up and to keep practicing. I recommend this course to anyone learning to ride a motorcycle.”from a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“This was a great class with great instructors! Keep up the good work!”from a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The class was way more informative than I expected.”from a July 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“George and Diane were outstanding instructors. Very personable and patient. All my questions were answered and they helped me to improve with every exercise by giving feedback upon each completion.”from Joseph of Nesconset, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“A great big thanks to all the coaches especially Diane & George. I highly recommend this class to all new riders !”from Tom of Brentwood, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I liked how we were taught how to handle a motorcycle in slow speed situations, like tight turning, counterbalancing, and looking through a turn. Even as an experienced rider you tend to forget the basics or get into bad habits. As a result of taking this course I will be more mindful of the techniques that we tend to forget over time. I intend to practice these maneuvers regularly from now on. Aside from the slow speed and clutch control, etc., I feel that this school teaches you many skills and techniques on how to be as safe as you possibly can riding a motorcycle. Motorcycle riding is one of the greatest feelings to experience, and this school teaches you how to get home safe.”from Joe of Bethpage, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The coaches were very personable and easy to interact with. I would recommend Big Apple Motorcycle School to anyone who is interested in becoming a safer, more knowledgable rider.”from David of Brookhaven, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Having taken an MSF course with other companies, I can truly say Big Apple Motorcycle School is great! The staff is so kind, they give you the attention needed if you’re not understanding the material, and most importantly they make everything fun. I will absolutely recommend Big Apple Motorcycle School to anyone looking to take a motorcycle course!”from a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“They are wonderful. The class was well put together and the instructors were friendly, competent, and patient (and believe me, I tested it.) I strongly recommend Big Apple to anyone wishing to learn how to ride a motorcycle, even those with no prior experience. You will NOT regret it!”from Sean of New Hyde Park, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Great classes and instruction. Very pleased with the whole experience!”from a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I rode a 49cc scooter for about 10 years and 16,000 miles. It was time before I die to finally get a motorcycle license, a motorcycle and to learn to ride safely and get rid of all the bad habits that you can get away with on a bike that only goes 35mph. I thought it would be nice to go with my son to your course and we had a blast. He had never been on even a dirt bike prior to our weekend. You guys were great, attended to our needs, taught us a lot and I give you 5 stars. As I ride off into the sunset I hope to stay safe and see you on the road if not back for another class, IE the advanced class at some point. Thanks for a great weekend from June 2nd to the 4th. Stay Safe & God Bless!”from James of Plainview, a June 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“It was a great school and I would definitely recommend it to my friends who want to ride.

“Felice and George were excellent instructors. They were passionate about providing us with information and practice so that we could make safe choices while out on the road. They were tough and fair. Great course!”from a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The course was great. I went in not feeling comfortable on a bike, and came out feeling quite confident in my skills on one. Not only was is very educational, it was fun as well.”from Matt of Bethpage, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Started course with little to no knowledge. Left the course with everything I needed to know to safely ride on the road. Felice, George and Diane were great! Going to sign up for a skills course this summer. I would for sure recommend this school.”from Chelsea of Yaphank, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The course was great! I learned a lot having little experience riding a motorcycle. Before I took the course I thought that 2 days of exercises would not be enough but by the end I felt very comfortable. I know that I have to work on on my own, But this course gives out great resources that I can practice on my own. I would recommend this school to friends and family, the best feeling was not feeling rush to pick up a skill, that mistakes happen and to just work on it through reinforcing through the drills.”from Amir of Holtsville, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Huge thank you to everyone for their guidance. From the moment I started this process to the moment I ended, felt like I was encouraged and given clear feedback every bit of the way. Thank you.”from Brian of East Williston, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I can’t stress enough how convenient and eye-opening this course is, for both experienced and non-experienced motorcycle enthusiasts. You can even see things differently as a car driver and you become more aware and considerate on the road. The intstructors were patient, fun, awesome and direct. I wish I could practice more with them.”from Hemmy of Lindenhurst, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“LOVED EVERY BIT OF THIS EXPERIENCE. I’m so glad I chose to do this course to start of on my journey.”from Herby of Elmont, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

Instructors were awesome and worked with you!”from a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Thank you! A great teacher makes all the difference! A calm supportive encouraging tone when teaching makes a student focus and find confidence to try harder and not to give up! Thank you again! I learned a lot! I had fun learning! I will return to learn more!”from a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“To be short – the course was very useful and worse every $ and most important – all my time I spend attending the course. I like to mention that all instructors are very knowledgeable. Here I like to highlight George who is an excellent teacher and most important capable to share his experience with us, students. I hope that with the teaching and “blessing” of the Big Apple I will start my SAFE motorcycle journey. By the way – when I am on the bike I feel that I am still OK that makes me happy. THANK YOU Big Apple.”from Victor of Huntington, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Both instructors did an awesome job and very knowledgeable, and had great interaction with my group, thumbs up to George and Felice, thanks.”from Guelfo of West Islip, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Great class for beginners to learn to ride. Also, a great refresher for rusty riders.”from John of West Babylon, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Our instructors, Felice, George, Pat and Randy were outstanding! They gave us a tremendous insight into safe riding by becoming well disciplined riders. As a novice, i always thought riding would be easy as long as you could ride a bike. Wrong! Without taking this class, you’re probably destined for a collision without realizing why. As a novice rider and being over 60 years of age, I learned that riding a big bike like my 1800 VTX takes even more skill than i anticipated when i got it a few months ago. Im glad i waited to take the class before riding it. Because of the class, my approach to riding this monster bike is entirely different. I will think safety first by protecting myself and others by applying the principles learned. Our coaches were knowledgeable, skillful, thoughtful, patient and encouraging at all times. They were both teacher and psychologist at the same time. I would not have passed but for their bedside manner providing strong mental support to accompany the physical demands of the skills classes. Although at one point i considered that i might be to old to ride, i didn’t give up because of our coaches. My body hurt all over when we finished. Despite that, it was challenging, exhilarating and rewarding simultaneously. In short, i recommend to anyone who wants to ride or who rides without having taken an MSF course, sign up to take the class. It is worth every penny and more. The alternative puts you more at risk each time you ride to something that could cost you much more than money – serious injury, or worse, your life! Learn to ride the right way!”from Lance of Hempstead, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Instructors were committed to helping the students become better and safer riders!”from Harold of Huntington, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Felice and George were fantastic instructors. Extremely knowledgeable.”from Chris of Long Island, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Great overall experience, and Felice and MJ were terrific!”from James of Syosset, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I had no riding experience at all and I learned a lot. I feel confident to get on a bike and go riding with friends. I definitely need a few hundred miles to ride before I’d feel confident enough to go riding for long distances though. Overall I’m very happy with the class and the instructors”from Paul of Bayshore, a May 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Great class. Learned some great skills that I would not have tried on my own. Can take the exercises from the class and do them on your own bike to build confidence and your skills.”from Joe of Rocky Point, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“This was a great learning experience! Well worth the time and money.”from Taryn of Stony Brook, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Being that I have a Harley and had a fall I was determined to increase my knowledge and abilities the correct way instead of learning from my friends. The course was perfectly constructed to introduce people to their first riding experience but had lessons that taught me the skill to maneuver the bike in slow and emergency conditions. All together it was a great course to take and I’m happy I did it, plus I got my license waiver! Thank you.”from Jason of Massapequa, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“As a first time rider, this class was much more than what I expected. The knowledge of the instructors was paramount to the learning process. The training was slow enough for me to grasp. It also moved at a quick enough pace to challenge what I had learned in the previous event. All in all, I’d recommend the BRC to anyone.”from Frank of Long Island, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I would definitely recommend this course to anyone whose never ridden or wants to sharpen up on their riding skills. George, Diane, Randy and MaryJo are very informative and great at presenting the various motorcycle situations and techniques that you will use on the road.”from Brian of New Hyde Park, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Taking this class as a person with years of riding experience was a great benefit for me. It helped with different skills like low speed maneuvers and counterbalance.

Always wanted to do this, and I am so glad I found out about Big Apple – it was a tremendous help in my being able to cross a motorcycle license off my “bucket” list.

“I cannot say enough about the class that I took the past three days. I do understand that it is a standardized curriculum, but what makes it outstanding is the care and support that you give your students. I cannot say enough about Felice and her ability to train her students in the art and science of SAFE motorcycling. She brought her personal stories and background into the classroom and made it more interesting, interactive and real to learn. Everyone was truly engaged. As for the hands-on (or should I say butt’s in seats) days your whole team, especially Felice, not only taught the required course but they watched the individual riders and were able to instruct them in key points that needed improvement. I saw students who had no ability to handle a motorcycle learn to ride in two half-day sessions. It was miraculous to me! This would not have happened with the course outline alone, the difference is the team you have assembled and the passion they bring to the training. You should be very proud of them! This old dog can be taught a few new tricks! Thanks again and all the best!”from James of Glen Cove, a September 2016 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“This beginners riding course is an absolute must for any new rider and it scares the hell out of me that these courses are not MANDATORY in order to get your license. I was a complete newbie…never having ridden on a motorcycle by myself before so I had some healthy fear going into this, to be honest. The course is well thought out and organized… The training from the class really helped to alleviate most of my fears. You get what you put in. If you listen to these instructors and you ask questions when you mess up, you will become a better rider… This course made everything so seamless and easy. The instructors were so knowledgeable and so down to earth. Even when you feel stupid for making a mistake, they always help you feel confident by telling you what you did and how to fix it… Have no shame, this is how you get better. I appreciated the constructive criticism, the helpful tips and everything I learned I have already carried over, not only for being a motorcyclist, but also as a car driver… If you are even thinking about getting your license, you’d be doing yourself such a disservice not to take this course. So glad I made the decision to take the class… Trust me, you will not be disappointed!”from Missy of Bellrose Terrace, a September 2016 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

Inquired about private lessons with Big Apple and got an immediate response suggesting the Intro to Motorcycling package. Got one on one instruction that was super informative and fun. The Basic Rider course they offer is worth a lot more than than the $ 350 they charge you.

Your friendly, helpful, and supportive demeanor made it fun and easy to learn. With the proper tools and techniques I feel confident about getting on the road. Thank you all again for teaching me ‘The Way To Ride!’”from Kristin of Syosset, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Just wanted to take the time to thank everyone. It truly was a great experience. I learned a lot and it truly made me want to practice as much as I can now. I’m going to continue going over all the skills and be as good as I can. I am also going to take the advanced class some time this summer. Once again Thank You all , and I will definitely be spreading the word about Big Apple. So to all be safe and I look forward to the advanced class.”from Paul of Baldwin, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I feel the Basic Rider Course is a must for any novice rider. It provides you the knowledge and foundation to become a confident and skillful rider.”from Michael of New York, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I can’t explain my feelings – it was just a great setup. I never rode a bike before. Now I can actually ride my bike on the street. Felice was a great teacher and she has so much patience. She was dealing with each student individually. Everything was great – love this place! Thank you very much to all.”from Mustafa of East Patchogue, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I hadn’t been on a bike for 37 years until the first day of rider training, and I must say the coaches kept me at ease, guided me through the program and by the end I passed the test. I’d encourage anyone considering riding a motorcycle to go through the program at Big Apple. Thanks, guys!”from Keith of Bohemia, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I had absolutely no experience on a motorcycle at all. The course was amazing. I know I have all the basic knowledge to become a safe and eventually sound rider. I will use everything I learned as I continue practicing the rules and safety tips I was given at your school.”from Ken of East Meadow, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Personally, I enjoyed the course and it definitely exceeded expectations in terms of what I thought I would learn.”from an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Felice was excellent. The structure of the program was top-notch and did a wonderful job of gradually introducing students to newer more advanced techniques. The worst part was having to say goodbye. Would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in learning how to ride.”from an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“Huge thank you to all of you at the Big Apple motorcycle School. I signed up online for your class, not knowing what to expect and with 0 experience with Motorcycles. I have learned so much far and beyond any expectations I had. It is a smooth learning process , from begging to end. Felice was amazing, not only super knowledgeable and very funny, which made the first day 5 hours ‘class learning’ be as much fun as the actual riding part, she was so positive, and so supportive. She constantly gave me confidence, no matter what , and It is so important because it can be a bit nerve-wracking at times, it is all so new, and demanding. But I felt she is there for me, at any given moment! And that made a huge difference for me! Big thank you to Sam and Diane as well, you are wonderful teachers and it was a pleasure learning from you all!”from Michal of Commack, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“The instructors were really helpful and made you feel like you were in a safe environment to learn how to ride. I would recommend this course to anyone, from a beginner to a professional who wants to really perfect their skills. Excellent course with excellent instructors!”from an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I loved this class! I feel safer and more confident on the road. The instructors were informative & knowledgeable. I would recommend this class to everybody who wants to ride a motorcycle.”from Jason of Bethpage, an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.
