“First I’d have to say George and Felice were great instructors. After the exercises were explained to us one of the instructors performed the exercise on the motorcycle. All of the exercises were important and you’ll take something away from this course even if you have experience or don’t. I would recommend the Basic RiderCourse to anyone looking to learn about motorcycle safety and important riding skills for on street riding. Thanks again.”from Mathew of Islandia, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“I hadn’t ridden in 40 years and stopped because I had too many bad habits. I decided I wanted to ride again but learn the correct way. Choosing BAMS was a great decision. The classroom training was interactive and fun. Felice and Diane did a great job. The range portion of the training was conducted in a controlled and professional manner. All the rider coaches were helpful and gave clear instructions. They all took time to point out what you should correct without making it feel like a lecture. This is a great course for new and beginning riders. I would easily recommend this for everyone.”from Joe of Lindenhurst, an April 2017 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.

“As an “older” female rider – I was treated with as much respect as all the younger males in my group. When I was about to give up – I was encouraged by both instructors and given more defined instructions to assist me in mastering moves. 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.

Our class ranged in age from early twenties to late Sixties, men and women and all were very comfortable with the pace of the course.

“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.

I am a 52 year old female and first time rider who had no idea what to expect from this course. The instruction begins with the simplest activity where a rider can get to feel comfortable on the bike provided for the course; and before you know it, you are learning and practicing activities that you never thought you could do in a weekend course. The course provided you with opportunities and challenges to learn what to do when riding on the public roads.

“I have never ridden a motorcycle before taking this course.

As a new rider I was a little apprehensive about a course with other riders that might have riding experience. 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. Great instructors, always supportive with plenty of constructive criticism enabling the proper skill proficiency.

I can definitely say with out a doubt in my mind that thanks to the help from George and Diane along with everyone at the Big Apple Motorcycle school I am much more confident when it comes to being on a motorcycle.

“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.

Excellent course with excellent instructors!”from an April 2015 student who took our MSF Basic RiderCourse.
