Do you want a course that prepares you properly for the road?
We believe you need a solid foundation of skills to be a controlled, smooth rider. Our Rider Elements course has been developed to help you achieve this by using three approaches: our on-line theory module, our closed on-lot module and our on-road module. You will use our bikes for all of the practical training.
This course is held during one evening (5:45PM to 10:00PM) and the following day (7:45AM to 5:00PM). You will be on the bike the entire time, with appropriate breaks for instruction and discussion. Each student is required to successfully complete our 3 course requirements. The Theory Section, including your home quiz, the Closed Lot Riding Portion, which measures your balance and slow speed control, the On Road Riding Portion, which measures your real life riding skills in various street environments.
The Closed Lot Riding Portion includes group instruction, skill demonstration, customized drills and constant feedback from our instructors.
The On-Road Riding Portion has specially trained road instructors that understand the importance of situational awareness. We use a 3:1 student to instructor ratio and each student is equipped with a bike-to-bike communication system and high visibility vest.
Rental gear is available.
Successful completion of Rider Elements automatically entitles you to our Free Practice for Life program!

TNT is amazing. I did their Learn to Ride course at the beginning of July (this testimonial is long overdue) and I am very glad I went with TNT. As many of the testimonials will attest to, Chris and Ernie are very personable and patient. As a teacher I really appreciated the way they scaffold the course. They start at the very beginning, adding new skills at just the right pace, so you are neither bored nor too far outside your current abilities and comfort level. Following the training I bought a bike and was able to use the drills from the course to continue to practice and get a feel for my new bike. I strongly recommend TNT Motorcycling to anyone looking for motorcycle training. Thank you Chris, Ernie, and the rest of the TNT team for everything!

Amazing two days of training. Gord and J-F were great. Learnt a lot more than expected as both were very flexible in helping all of us with a lot of 1on1 discussion as well as group discussions throughout the two days. Chris was awesome with the on road portion capping off the course. I would recommend rider elements to anyone including those who have experience riding. You'll be surprised what you'll learn. Thanks again to TNT.

I had been thrown from my horse!!! Needless to say I had little or no experience and what little I had left me completely unprepared for the power of my bike. It had always been my dream to ride my own Harley so I when Julianna called & told me they were going to add additional dates I was thrilled. I woke up Monday morning and watched the website like a hawk to secure a date. The prep material was very thorough but the day came and I was very nervous. I showed up and met Gord & Chris....they instantly put my mind at ease. I learned so much the first evening and was pleased that only one activity frustrated me a little. The next day was a long day, Both Gord & Chris we’re extremely patient & worked with me until I got it. I had such an amazing experience at the TNT learn to ride. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to learn how to ride. Like the instructors the other students were awesome too, very supportive & encouraging. Thank you TNT!!!

I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Rider Elements - Learn to Ride course, instructed by Chris and Gord. What an amazing experience!!! I loved everything about it - from the professional way that phone calls and emails were responded to by Julianna, to the lot instruction and road testing by Gord and Chris respectively. This motorcycle instruction program runs like a well oiled machine - top notch and well worth your time and money. I highly recommend checking them out if you want to become a more competent rider. Many thanks to Chris and Gord for sharing their knowledge and love of motorcycling : )

When I first signed up for the course I wasn't sure if I was even going to like riding. I enjoy being a passenger but me controlling a motorcycle...never in a million years thought I would be able to. Fast forward to June 6th it had just stopped raining and we arrived at the West Edmonton Assembly and I seen the bikes already to go and my nerves almost got the better of me. My instructors were Chris and Gord and my first impression of them was they seemed like nice guys who knew there stuff. My first day didnt got super well but they both reassured me that i was doing okay and that I would get better as the course progressed. I went home a little defeated as I struggled a little but I eager to start day 2. Day 2 was interesting. They didn't lie when they said they run Rain or shine and by halfway through Sunday I was soaked, cold and miserable but I was having the time of my life. Being told that I was doing fine by both Gord and Chris helped boost my confidence and by lunch I felt like I could actually pass the course. I think they both knew I was a little nervous though and put me in the first group to do the road portion and I thank them for that as my nerves would have gotten the best of me if I had to sit and wait. At the end of the day I passed the course and I couldn't be happier. I want to give a huge thank you to Chris and Gord for being amazing instructors and for TNT for being awesome as well. You guys helped me realize my love for riding a motorcycle and I hope to get my own real soon (after I practice a bit more of course)

I can only say good things - I have just finished and passed my Rider Elements program hours ago (in rain for close to 15 hours both days combined) and I had to give praise and credit for Chris and Gord, both friendly, humorous and down to earth instructors. Chris owns the school and he clearly has too many years of motorcycle rider knowledge and for tremendous reasons. I woke up recently one morning and thought of purchasing a bike. I've even told myself I wouldn't get one because of how dangerous it is. Chris and Gord recognize the dangers and stress that safety is a priority, like with any sport you pick up. The point is, I have zero experience on a motorcycle and a huge gap in my manual transmission experience since (18 years ago). They taught me how to ride a motorcycle like your mom or dad would teach you how to ride a bicycle in no time at all. I felt comfortable and that is because of my trust in these men. Every advice and ask from them I had followed through and they gave me confidence every time because they would acknowledge that I've followed their advice and provided me with additional tips to continue. Every hour of this course that goes by is a different activity and something learnt. I've grown my skills from each activity presented and they all add up at the end. Everything you learn in the lot is transferred on the road. 90% of the time you're on your bike learning, the 10% is theory and discussion. Furthermore, Gord is a remarkable instructor too. He saw the nervousness I had and he acknowledged that and he gave me reassurance every time. He allowed me additional practices to perfect any activity and to get ready for my road test with Chris and the Lot test at the end. Thank you Gord for what you do and I admire your ability to instruct. Thank you Chris for serving the motorcycle community in Edmonton and every where else. I'm sure you know you make an impact and share the good in motorcycling. I hope to participate in the Rider Tactics soon, to learn more from you.

clutch in, clutch out...... shift up, shift down. These are the types of things that we can remember with not much issue. Chris and J.F were there to teach me (us) about everything in-between that matter the most. Being familiar with the sounds and feels that the bike gives us is just as, in not more important than being able to remember the basics that will get you out of 1st gear and into second. Being able to out everything together Into one fluid motion is the overall key to being able to ride a motorcycle. Can't thank you guys enough for the 15 hours you've spent with us. Steve, thanks for the road ride and the criticisms made. Definitely a course everyone should take. I'll see yas next spring to shake the dust off !!

Had Chris B. and Ernie as my instructors for the Learn to Ride course, it was an amazing experience. The two were extremely helpful and patient, explained things thoroughly and if I didn’t understand or had additional questions they did not hesitate to help. Everything I could think of was covered to help me be more confident in my riding and myself to pass my class 6 road test. Would recommend 10/10!
Monday, Aug 19, 2019
I was very anxious upon registering for this course. I wanted to learn to ride but was unsure of myself and ability. Chris, Gord and the two girls were absolutely phenomenal. They were constantly encouraging me and had the faith in me that I was missing. I appreciate the patience and encouragement. After taking this course, I feel ready to purchase a bike and practice for my road test. Thanks so much.
Sunday, Aug 11, 2019
I am not normally one to write testimonials but after completing such a well ran course I felt I would be doing a disservice to the instructors if I didn't. Honestly one of the best investments you could make into yourself. The instruction received throughout and the amount of reps we got in on each drill was phenomenal. Some people needed more help then others on some drills and they took their time with those people without letting the rest of the class lose on any constructive criticism. No egos just some great dudes teaching VERY valuable skills. Highly recommend. Thank you TNT!

I took the Rider Elements course with Chris and Flaviu with no experience on a motorcycle. I've ridden bicycles for years but never anything powered. After a shaky start, the tips and observations by both Chris and Flaviu were invaluable to improving my confidence on the bikes. After passing the course, I followed that up with the Rider Tactics 1 session with Deryl a week later. Another fantastic session which taught me a lot. After both courses, I knew all I needed was practice. A very valuable investment!

Hats off to the TNT group. I went to the St Albert location after a long day of work. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect but it was such a blast. Everyone was friendly and did their best to show us what we should focus on. We also learned from their riding experiences. Thanks to Chris and all the crew. Regards Khaled

I took the rider elements course over the 27th and 28th of June. I really have nothing but great things to say about my experience. The hands on learning aspect and steady drills, rain or shine (thankfully it was mostly shine) were great for building confidence on the bike. Most of my time in the course was spent working with Flaviu, and I can't thank him enough for making the course fun and passing on lots of quality knowledge down to us all. He was super patient, and always calm and kind and that makes the entire experience even better! The road ride was great. I'm sorry but I cannot remember the name of the road instructor on the 28th, I'm horrible with names, but that being said they too were very kind and patient. TNT Response - Ernie was the Road Instructor :) The entire two days were great, and not once did I ever feel like I was pushed into anything uncomfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend taking this course to anyone who wants to get a solid start on riding motorcycles. I will also for certain be back to take further offered courses in the near future. Thanks for a great time and a great experience

I did my Rider Elements course with TNT and I liked that the instructors are patient and genuinely seek to impact the skills for you to be safe on the road... I struggled with getting the basics right, and took the Course Completion and at no time did I feel the pressure of any of the instructor's becoming impatient with me or just passing me without having the required skills. It took me extra work, time and money; however, I learned the basic skills required to control the motorcycle and keep myself safe.. I recommend TNT for everyone who wishes to learn how to ride safe.
Sunday, Jun 23, 2019
Last weekend I took the Rider Elements course with no driving experience at all and left with a very high level of confidence. The instructors kept things positive and that helped many people including me. The best part was when we went on our little 1/2 hour ride. That’s when I knew that they did their job. I highly recommend this training to anyone.
Thursday, Jun 20, 2019
Had a great weekend, even with a bit of rain it was fun. The instruction was great and I passed my class 6 advanced road test with 0 points off. Great experience.
Wednesday, Jun 12, 2019
I just completed my Learn to Ride course under the instruction of Flaviu! I came into this course without any riding experience what so ever and was SO nervous to attend. The minute I stepped onto the lot, Flaviu was inviting and made me feel so comfortable. He answered every single question and didn’t leave anyone feeling lost or left behind. He gave excellent feedback and coached everyone individually where he felt they needed it most. Ernie came along to help him at the end of the course for the lot test and Ernie was just as great as Flav! I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to learn and I look forward to attending more courses in the future!
Tuesday, May 28, 2019
I have already taught myself how to ride and have been riding with supervision from friends for about a month before taking the Rider Elements course. I still learned so much and gained so much more confidence with my riding from this course. Specially on controlling my bike in slow speeds which I could not have learned myself. I enjoyed the road ride portion of this course as it taught me defensive riding approach to what things to look out for when out on the road with traffic and pedestrians. I highly highly recommend this for anyone who is new or experienced rider. Chris and Flaviu were such amazing instructors. Thank you for being so patient and encouraging. I'm looking forward to taking advanced lessons from you guys in the future!
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
Took the course May 18-19 Absolutely highly recommend it. Ernie and Chris were our primary instructors with help from Taylor in the lot and Larry on the road.I can’t say enough good things about these people. Take the course you won’t regret it. Took the Road test Tuesday and got it. Learned a lot!

Old dog learning new tricks! I am an older, self taught rider returning after a long break from riding. Even though I have my class 6 I decided to go back to the basics and take the Rider Elements beginner course. It proved to be an excellent investment of time and money. Not a single wasted moment! The instruction, facility and equipment provided are top notch. Bikes have changed for the better and the riding environment has changed for the worse. I feel much more prepared to face the modern riding environment. Thanks to all the instructors. Keep up the good work. I’ll be back for some advanced training. See you on the road, Jim

Thursday May 16, 2019 I just recently completed the Rider Elements - Learn to RIDE course the weekend of May 10/11, 2019. As a retired police officer of 27 years, I have taken numerous courses throughout my career. I found the TNT instructors were not only knowledgeable and professional but are also passionate about motorcycles and creating safe riding habits. After meeting the course standards, I took advantage of the free practice during the lunch hour on Sunday and then successfully obtained my class 6 on my first attempt road test on Tuesday. Another TNT student was taking his road test just before me and he also passed as well. Thank you Chris and to your staff! I know I am a better more confident rider as a result of your course instruction and practice.

I Had 0 experience when I came here and they worked with me to get me riding even when I was struggling with some of the course they kept helping me and I was able to pass the course when I thought I was going to fail. It’s thanks to the kind and knowledgeable instructors they had. I can not thank them enough for the experience I had while I was there It was a fun two day course and the road ride was Awsome I am glad I picked tnt and would recommend it to anyone
Monday, May 13, 2019
The staff at TNT are amazing!! They are extremely knowledgeable and offer very clear and easy to follow instruction. I would highly recommend TNT to anyone, new or experienced riders as they offer a range of courses for all skill levels, you will not be disappointment. Special thanks to Clayton, Joe and Steve!
Monday, May 13, 2019
I had never been on a motorcycle before and a friend and I signed up. You know two old dogs ( 47 years old ) giving each other support. He bailed and I went ahead thinking what am I doing here. Within half hour of the rider elements course I was at ease and found the course to be fantastic. The staff were amazing giving constant feedback and pointers. They let us learn based on skill coming in and provided a very enjoyable environment to develop. This was a great experience, one I will continue to tell others about and send to TNT. Thanks to the staff for making this possible.

What an absolutely amazing course! Instructors Doug, Heather and Joe were FANTABULOUS! Thank you again so much for your free time to teach us how to ride safely! Shoulder check - yep, always do even in my car! Clearly riding out on the street with Doug was the icing on the cake for me - and I could have stayed out there all afternoon! To get a compliment from DOUG, that I demonstrated Advanced Rider skills when on the road, really made my day! Can't rave enough about you guy's and your expertise and knowledge - and infinite patience with us all! I am revved to get my Class 6 road test complete so I can get my license and RIDE! I picked the CBR 125 Repsol bike - loved it, as I love the street rockets and a huge fan of MotoGP for a long time. This course taught me all the skills I need to have to be a safe rider - thanks to TNT Motorcycle Rider Training.
Saturday, Aug 25, 2018
I took the rider element beginner course. Joe, Clayton and Chris B are great instructors. They teach you all the techniques and all you need is practice. No shortage of drill procedures and patience. I highly recommend TNT for anyone that want to have the confidence to be on the bike. I'very pass the road test 1st time
Wednesday, Aug 1, 2018
I have nothing but praise for the instructors and staff at TNT. As a new rider I took both beginner Rider Elements and RIder Tactics courses prior to gaining my Class 6 license. Instructors Larry, Steve and Deryl do a great job of making you feel at ease while teaching you how to ride skillfully and safely. I highly recommend TNT to anyone wanting to improve their rider skills. I will be back for more advance training once I get more 'windshield time' behind me.

I completed the Rider-Elements Beginner course on June 22, 2018. I had about 1000Km's of riding under my belt (mainly off-road) and came to TNT to learn the basics of on-road riding and give me the confidence I needed to complete the class 6 road test. Roxi did am amazing job as the instructor - I am so fortunate to have had her. TNT made everything so easy right up to the testing stage. Everyone is friendly! Thank-you TNT! I passed the class 6 road test with flying colours on my first try!
Wednesday, Jul 18, 2018
I have never rode a motorcycle in my life so I had a lot to learn. Chris, JF and Steve were so patient with me and gave me the sense that I could do it and it a safe manner. Would recommend TNT to anyone!
Monday, Jul 16, 2018
TNT has outstanding instructors! They can take even the most green nervous rider and turn them into confident competent riders in no time. Thank you so much TNT
Tuesday, Jul 3, 2018
Rider Element Beginners is awesome courser for new or experience already. I used to ride scooter and learned how to use motorcycle with gears in this course. Instructors are amazing and willing to share all they know that makes its easy to learn and follow. I have few difficulties however both of the instructor worked on my challenges and at the end of the course i passed all lot test with no mistake. The road ride is a challenge however chris is there to help and keep everyone safe. A week after the course i took my road test and now i am happy crusing on my own bike alone... Looking forward for advance or next level of skills enhancement or course.
Thursday, Jun 28, 2018
This course packs a lot of learning and skills development into a quick day and a half. Having almost no experience prior to this I was able to develop the skills and confidence to pass the course and the Class 6 exam. The instructors were great and took the time to spend with students who needed extra guidance or who were getting frustrated when struggling with a specific skill. Having the time to practice freely before the Lot Test was invaluable and allowed me to really focus on the things that needed work before testing. The road ride was a great transition from lot to real life. With a quick pep talk from Chris before my exam the next morning I was able to pass the Class 6 on the first try!
Saturday, Jun 23, 2018
This training course was absolutely exceptional. The Instruction from Joe and Ernie on the lot brought me from greenhorn to comfortable in one weekend. The techniques taught increased my awareness, control, safety, and confidence on a motorcycle by a whole lot. The road ride with Darryl was very informative. He is a seasoned rider with a lot of great advice to offer and conducted himself very calmly despite having three new guys out on the road with him. This section did the most for me personally as we could put the lot skills into practice in a real world environment. The course gave me the knowledge and skill to successfully pass my class 6 license test without issue, and I can't recommend these guys enough. Thanks to Chris, Darryl, Joe, Ernie, and the rest of the TNT staff.
Saturday, Jun 23, 2018
What a fantastic experience! I had never ridden a motorcycle until yesterday. I just completed the beginner course today and passed with confidence and comfort. I chose this school based on the online reviews. I was not disappointed. The instructors were patient and knowledgeable. They really made this an enjoyable experience. The skills that we learned in the lot were immediately put into real road situations on the road test. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning to ride or those who are looking to improve their skill set. Thank you to Chris, Larry and Merrill!
Thursday, Jun 21, 2018
Just took beginner training last week instructors are very knowledgeable in all aspects of motorcycling.. after the course I found myself getting frustrated and left abruptly. They called me back and we’re willing to work with me on my own bike so I could complete the course.. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking into getting a bike as they did teach me stuff that is extremely helpful. And we’re willing to work with me dispite having a poor attitude. Thanks guys I wish you much success in all your future endeavours. Thank you Chris and the rest of the staff.
Thursday, Jun 21, 2018
Passed my class 6 exam today on my own bike! Big thanks to TNT for the rider elements course. The course was an excellent chance to practice the skills needed to pass the exam and to be a safe rider. Would highly recommend TNT to anyone considering a motorcycle safety course.

Hello, I booked into the Rider Elements - Beginner course with very little bike knowledge and even less riding experience. The online information package I received once I had registered was very helpful. The instructors were very informative and comforting for the less experienced riders in the group. I liked how fast we got on to the bikes and just started to learn how to ride and build confidence. The course was well structured and kept things moving. Once completed I booked my road test 2 weeks later and asked to use the TNT bike over the lunch hour while another group of beginners were taking a break. With a quick yes! I was able to warm up before the exam and ask the on site instructors any final questions i had. I took the road test and got 100% which felt awesome because of the limited knowledge I had just 2 weeks earlier. Thank you to all the TNT Staff and I highly recommend booking any courses you need with TNT Motorcycling Rider Training. See you on the road.

Hello, I attended this past weekends beginning motorcycling course with a friend and my daughter. We all started with different experience levels and all three of us agree 1. How much fun we had, and 2. How skilled and knowledgeable all of the instructors were/are. We truly had a great time and it all started in the first few moments with introductions.You guys did such a nice job of making us feel at home and setting the tone for a relaxed learning atmosphere. Thanks to team of Steve, Heather, Doug and Katrina, and feel free to post my testimonial if you like. My daughter and I will be there on Monday to do our road tests. :-) Using your bikes after all.
Friday, Jun 15, 2018
This is truly an amazing and fun course to be a part of! Although I had wanted to ride a motorcycle for quite some time, I was nervous to get started. I wanted to learn the safe handling techniques of a bike with proper maneuvers - this course definitely exceeded my expectations and didn't disappoint. The instructors were very patient, calm and constructive which not only gave me the knowledge and confidence to ride but also made learning an enjoyable experience! Highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to start riding. Huge shout out to the instructors - Thank you!
Saturday, Jun 2, 2018
Although I had ridden motorcycles for years in Europe I still learnt a lot from this course. A great,friendly atmosphere to learn in. I was really impressed by the way the instructiors took people who had never ridden a motorcycle before and gave them the skills to ride safely over the period of the course. I highly recommend this course for anyone thinking of taking up motorcycling.
Tuesday, May 22, 2018
The Rider Elements - Beginner course was fantastic! I had no previous riding experience and left (after passing of course) feeling like a motorcycle veteran. I gained confidence and feel safe on a motorcycle with the skills learned. The instructors were all so patient and knowledgeable and really showed interest that we all got the most out of the course. I have since taken and passed my road test and can't wait to purchase a bike of my own to bring by and show them. I'm really going to enjoy riding the roads. Thank you very much Larry, Steve and Deryl
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
A MUST for anyone learning to ride a motorcycle. I had been on the back of the bike for years, but decided to get my own bike. My confidence level on my bike since the course has significantly improved. I am confident in the skills I learned over the course of 2 days and can't wait for all of the adventures I will now have because of it. I recommend this course for everyone. It is DEFINITELY worth the money. Thank you to Larry and Chris who made the experience a breeze for even the most difficult to teach! Sending you nothing but positive vibes! Thank you, thank you!!
Monday, May 14, 2018
I took the beginner course on May 10 and 11. It was a great course for anyone first learning to ride. It was good for someone that has never been on a bike to those who have ridden before. I got a lot out of this course. After practicing on my own bike the following weekend, I took my road test that Monday and pass with no mistakes. The examiner said I can handle the bike very well. Thank you to the guys at TNT.
Thursday, May 10, 2018
Very well done compressed course. I personally learned a lot from the material and instructors. Each instructor had their own teaching style. What i found especially helpful was when an instructor would tell me what i did right and how to do something differently next time instead of you did this wrong. One thing i would strongly suggest is taking more mini breaks to get drinks of water. On hot days we are riding bikes that are producing heat and we are stuck under leather in jeans and in a helmet. It gets hot and we dehydrate quickly. I personally ended up with a migraine that lasted two days as i was dehydrated. Drinking breaks is a suggestion. Overall awesome course. I started feeling scared and left feeling confident

Sometimes, you walk away from a course with little gains, TNT offer more than little, as you walk away with newly acquired skills and passion.
Wednesday, May 2, 2018
I took the Rider elements course after bring interested in riding for the past few years. After the two sessions I was able to pass the road test with confidence. The skills you develop in the course help you feel safer and more confident on the road. The instructors were patient, knowledgeable and overall amazing.
Saturday, Sep 2, 2017
Great course I learnt so much on the Rider Elements course I feel super confident driving on the road now! Thanks to the guys for accommodating a tiny 5 foot girl like myself ill definitely be back for more courses! They have a great set up and I recommend their courses to all my friends! :)
Wednesday, Aug 16, 2017
I enjoyed taking the Rider Elements course. I found the instructors to be patient, helpful and encouraging. I'm a bit "physically challenged" (below knee amputee on my right leg). It took quite a bit of practice to get good with the rear brake, but I got it figured out and passed the course. Going out on the road drive was a real confidence booster as well. Two thumbs up for the whole experience.
Tuesday, Aug 8, 2017
The course was fantastic and fun. The instructors made me feel comfortable and they were very knowledgeable, I will recommend this course to all my friends!!!
Sunday, Jul 30, 2017
I took the rider elements course with exactly zero expirence with any type of motorcycle. My nervous inexpirence was directly met with confident, calm and professional instructor's who make it easy to learn. I highly recommend this course to anybody, reguardless of expirence who wants to become a better rider. Thank you TNT.
Friday, Jul 7, 2017
I took the Rider Elements course through encouragement from friends. I had never been on a bike before and was unsure how this would go. Flaviu and Eric are calm and knowledgable and they definitely won't give anything unless earned. Once I got out of my own head and trusted the instructions I was being given, things began to click. I was able to complete the course and now I start on the new journey of riding.

I took Rider Elements in June. Steve and Eric were great and helped with building confidence - especially when the torrential downpour started. They provided great feedback and quick pointers on how we could improve (and it helped!). Absolutely a great course!

I took the Rider Elements in June 2017 and being a first time rider it gave me the confidence, skills and experience I needed to be able to handle a bike. The instructors give you no bullshit especially Steve. :) BTW Steve is the BEST instructor we could have asked for on this course. Steve told me what I was doing wrong and was patient with me until I corrected myself. He is what I definitely needed and I am thankful to him and TNT. Now my new bike awaits me. Cheers. The smallest one, with the biggest attitude. :) See ya on the road.

I took Rider Elements in May, and it was a great environment to learn the basics. I rode dirtbikes as a kid, but learning proper low speed techniques, and receiving structured feedback has really helped me feel more balanced, and confident riding in the city. My morning commute is now the best part of my day!!!

There is not much more I can add to all the positive comments that have already been posted. It's all true; great course, excellent instructors, good bikes. But who I really want to brag about and give credit to this time is the person behind the scenes. Shelley at TNT office was fantastic when it came to making accommodations for me at the last minute notice. The day of the course I had a medical family emergency and was unable to attend. I totally expected to lose my full payment but Shelley stepped in and went beyond and above her job description. She found another person to take my spot that day, rescheduled me for another weekend, and saved me hundreds of dollars. I was just on the phone with her again and she helped me get scheduled for the upcoming Rider Tactics course. The woman is a real please to talk to. Great job Shelley and thank you for your support. If I could give you a raise I would.

This course is a must for anyone considering hitting the road on two wheels. I grew up on dirt / trail bikes and finally gave into the desire to move to a cruiser. A friend recommended TNT and, because his bike experience was similar to mine, I took his advice. I am so glad I did. Rainor and Eric drilled us on key skills during the day and a half in a way that was fun but serious. I was quite impressed how they brought the new riders up to speed as well. Chris handled the road ride portion of the course and proved to be a calm professional focused on everyone's safety during the ride with encouraging reminders. Had I remembered his advice about turn signals being on too long after the turn I would have passed my road test with zero demerits! :-) I highly recommend this course and will be taking future courses at TNT to continue improving my skills. They're determined to improve the riding community out there by delivering top quality riders one at a time.

Excellent course. Had a wide variety of rider levels in the course and the instructors made sure no one felt left behind. They took the time needed to ensure everyone was comfortable and confident. Would recommend this course to anyone no matter level of skill.
Wednesday, Jun 7, 2017
Having zero riding experience but always wanting to ride a motorcycle, I was excited but unsure of what to expect. Immediately I was set at ease as the instructors really balance safety and confidence. I was given ample time to learn and hone the skills that were taught and the staff were professional and patient. Very satisfied and happy to took the course- it's also lots of fun!
Thursday, Jun 1, 2017
I had enough experience to get a bike on the road, or so I thought. This course and these instructors provided me with the fundamentals that are so important to enjoy the road safely! Way to go TNT and thank you!
Friday, May 26, 2017
After getting my first motorcycle and having no experience I knew that taking a course was essential to my success. The staff at TNT gave me the time I needed to learn, they are extremely patient and knowledgeable. I left the course with the skills and confidence I needed to have fun and enjoy my new bike. Chris and Eric are fantastic!
Thursday, May 25, 2017
Chris and his team of instructors provided an excellent, pressure-free, and relaxed environment for learning to ride a motorcycle. This course embeds all the critical practices and knowledge required for safe riding. Chris' passion for riding is evident and translates into a fantastically run training school. Special thanks to Larry who was a patient and well-spoken road instructor. I will recommend this course to anyone interested in two wheel riding!
Friday, May 19, 2017
as a lifelong dirt bike rider this course was great to translate experience (including bad habits) to on road. very confidence inspiring and had me well prepared to pass my licence test with no demerits! thanks for a great course!
Friday, May 19, 2017
Was an excellent course for all with experience or not I have rode before but not much and was a great course to learn the proper way of riding thanks to Rainer, Eric and Chris. First day started at 5:45 pm which was great as I had a 5 hr drive to the city and was on the bikes and learning with in the hr. second day was a full day of some real good lot skills and tests with a road ride. Finished with graduation and was off to colingwood registrys within the hr and passed my road test with flying colours. Thanks once again guys for the awsome course and expert knowledge.
Monday, May 15, 2017
excellent experience, i learned lot and they prepared me for my road test so thank'guys for your patience
Saturday, May 6, 2017
April 28 2017 Rider Elements course was a blast and prepared me to pass my road test on May 5th 1st attempt , I would definitely recommend this course to everyone who wishes to ride these Crazy Alberta roads , thanks to all at TNT for the patience and knowledge you shared . keep up the good work
Thursday, May 4, 2017
Great course! I was dreading the road before I started the course. After the on lot instruction I felt confident to go out on the road. Chris was an awesome coach on the road, and has a great team of instructors. I gained a lot from this course, and will be signing up for more. Cheers
Wednesday, May 3, 2017
Excellent experience, I had no experience riding a motorcycle before taking the rider elements course the instructors were great and patient with me as I don't learn as fast as others but after the 2 days I felt confident on the motorcycle and passed the class 6 road test the next day. Thank you for the great experience
Saturday, Aug 27, 2016
This was my first time riding a motorcycle, and the course gave me the confidence to pass both my written and road tests on the first attempt, and has now allowed me to begin fully enjoying the sport. The instructors were professional and understanding. The class was great fun. Overall, this was an outstanding experience and I highly recommend it to newbies and experienced riders alike. I will most certainly be back for advanced courses in the coming season. Thank you!

Over a decade since I last rode so figured a couple of days training in order to get reacquainted with two wheels was warranted. Found TNT on the internet; Course length looked right, it fit with work and the bonus of a free rental for the Class 6 road test made it an easy decision. Professional instructors who clearly love riding and sharing their love of motorcycles. Great instructions provided throughout and personalized attention ever present. When I was getting comfortable with a maneuver any one of the instructors would give me encouragement to ‘try a tighter turn’ or ‘get your speed up and use more front brake’ and my skills improved. Deryl did a great job leading the road ride, getting us up to speed, and providing lots of guidance and tips. And the preparation for the Class 6 road test was invaluable. Finished the course on Saturday, and passed the road test on Tuesday. Thanks for helping me get back on two wheels, don’t know why I waited so long.
Wednesday, Aug 3, 2016
This course was excellent, from beginning to end! I was very nervous because I had never been on a motorcycle before. Chris, Eric and Daryl were patient and relaxed, educated and encouraging. They want you to succeed at being a safe rider and they won't let you move forward until you are. It's obvious they aren't just in this to push people through an assembly line riding course; they want the roads to be safe for motorcyclists, new and experienced. Thank you guys, for a great first motorcycling experience. I will recommend your program to everyone I speak to and I'll never forget to shoulder check!
Wednesday, Jul 20, 2016
I had not done any significant riding on a motorcycle in about 25 years. My memory told me I had always been a decent rider. Apparently that's just heading straight down the road or mild turns. Wow, these guys showed me things that would have saved me troubles in the past had I been aware before. Also, I was not afraid of riding on the roads among traffic. I am a good driver in a car and try to be aware and visible to others. Even so, taking this course provided quite a bit more confidence just from the added understanding of the bike and its reactions to the rider. Trained most of the day with Eric. If ever I was looking to hire someone to lead people, Eric would be on my short list. Fantastic job and a big thank you! Rainor provided the remainder of my lot training. Very candid fellow who could teach most people a thing or two. Really appreciate the direct approach ! Road tested with Chris who is obviously keenly aware of his surroundings. He picked out really key details that might have otherwise gone unnoticed. There is a great depth of knowledge and skill that so many more should try to get from him. All in all - a great experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in motorcycling.

Just completed the Rider Elements course and was really impressed with it...I had never been on a bike before and the instructors worked really hard to make sure I was capable to ensure a safe and fun experience for the road ride. Thanks very much to Steve, Eric and Daryl for a great weekend! Emmet
Tuesday, Jul 5, 2016
I had a fantastic time at the course and feel totally confident riding now!! I bought my first bike and have ridden bikes here and there but not much so I took the elements course to get some skills and was pleasantly surprised on how easy they made the learned and at comfortable pace! Then I took my road exam right after the course and passed!! I have already signed up for their off-road course!

My husband is a huge fan of riding. I was tossing back and forth.... wasn't sure how I felt! So, I decided to take the Rider Elements course that my husband took last summer. But first I needed to practice some sort of riding... so in March we purchased a Honda 125 CBR. We rode a couple times a week, and each time we rode I enjoyed it more and more! I was getting excited for the course. Upon arriving on Thursday, my classmates consisted of me and 7 gentlemen! Little intimidated forsure! But, after doing some lot work, I was over the intimidation feeling quickly! Erin and Rainor along with the other classmates made me feel comfortable! I was able to perform most of the lot skills with no issues, the road trip was great! But, I had issues with Collision avoidance. Rainor tried everything, he wasn't stopping until I did it, and did it right... not once, but about 5 times! At last.. he stamped my card! I was thrilled! The course completed and passed! Next up 2 days later I had my road test, SUCCESS there too! I now hold a class 6 license! Thank you so much Rainor, Erin and everyone at T&T for teaching us the skills to be safe riders! And BIG thanks to my husband for guiding me in the rider direction!

I've always wanted a motorcycle, but never thought I'd be able to because the odds seemed against me. I had never rode a motorcycle, never drove stick, and I'm so short that I can't flat-foot anything taller than a Grom. Plus, I have no friends/family that ride who could have taught me. Some randomly lady at an AMA saw me flipping through the riders guide and recommended TNT, I'm so glad she did. If she hadn't, I probably wouldn't have my class 6 today. I took Rider Elements last year, and Rider Tactics this summer before I took my road test. I passed with no demerits relating to motorcycle control, just made some silly general driving errors. If TNT can teach me how to ride, they can probably teach anyone else. Big thanks to Flaviu, Steve and Eric for their constructive criticism. And a huge thanks to Deryl for being so polite, patient, and for making me road-test ready. Bought a motorcycle last week, this summer couldn't be any better!
Tuesday, Jun 14, 2016
I did my course june 9th and 10th. After which, I had set my road test with Callingwood registry. I passed right off the bat, all thanks to my instructors. My examiner said, my balance was great and probably one of the best examinees he had in years. TNTmotorcycling prepared me well. Before I took the course, I was bad at parking lot speeds. That was all cured after the course. Thanks again! I will not forget the basics you taught.
Wednesday, Jun 8, 2016
I completed the Rider Element course the beginning of May. It was the best decision I could have made, The teachers were great, Rainor, Chris and Eric, they were all very knowledgeable, encouraging & patient. The skills and confidence I gained taking this course helped a lot. A week later I completed Rider Tactics 1, my instructor Deryl, asked what I felt I needed work on, it was confidence. I brought my own bike and we rode for 2 hours, 4 days later I passed my Class 6 Road test with confidence and pride. Thank you to everyone at TNT. I highly recommend course.
Tuesday, May 31, 2016
Completed Rider Elements with Instructors Chris, Eric and Steve. Had a great time, and learned the fundamentals of practical, and safe riding. They are very patient teachers. I have attained my class 6 licence, which I believe I wouldn't have If I did not take a course, and I am glad I took it with TNT. I will recommend this course to anyone I know interested in learning, and will take other courses in the future to improve my current abilities. Thanks guys!
Thursday, May 26, 2016
I didn't know what to expect from this course, but I was very impressed by the smooth and professional presentation in this course. Slow-speed drills weren't something I was expecting, but I was glad to learn them! It sure made me aware of my balance on a bike. And the shoulder-checking emphasis ... now I find myself doing that in my truck on the road. This course has so much to offer, even to experienced bikers who've never taken a formal course, that I'd recommend it without hesitation. Rainor, Chris, and Eric were great teachers, and the course was well worth the money.
Saturday, May 14, 2016
I had never sit on a bike before, but just one week after completing Rider Elements I passed my road test, and bought a Yamaha R3 within the week. After 100-200 km of city riding, it became clear just how important everything that was taught in the course was to remain safe on the roads, and because of that I have been able to! Chris, Rainor, and Eric were all very knowledgeable and excellent teachers, and my riding is much better because of them. It may be possible to pass a road test without this course, but there are so many important things a new rider would never think of that it would be a reckless decision to get a bike without this course, even with off-road experience.
Thursday, May 12, 2016
I have already told everyone I know that rides about the course and how great it was. I was so nervous to begin with, since my riding experience was pretty much nil. But the instructors were patient and very good at teaching and making sure I learned the right way to do things. I didn't think I would be able to ride a motorcycle, but I fell in love with it right away! I would love to take the Rider Tactics Class with my own bike, as it is quite different from what I learned on and am a little nervouse riding it since there is quite a size and weight difference. But I'm sure after that course, I will be confident.
Thursday, May 12, 2016
Competitive price, good preparation for the road, and ultimately I feel confident in purchasing and riding a motorcycle on the road on my own. Also the Bulger beat any price for motorcycle insurance I've found by about half so the course paid for itself in alerting that to me since I will save as much as I paid for the course in one year.
Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Thanks so much! FYI... I passed the road test this morning:) The training at TNT was extremely helpful. Thanks again to everyone involved! It's going to be fantastic Summer!
Saturday, Aug 1, 2015
Just wanting to extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the team of Chris, Eric and Deryl and everyone at TNT Motorcycling, who has provided me with the *proper* road skills and techniques that allowed me to pass the Class 6 road test today. Even though I have ridden motorcycles before (way back), the learning and insight you will gain from these awesome folks would be invaluable once you start riding and prepare for your road exam. I took both the Rider Elements and the Rider Tactics courses. The Rider Elements brings you the a solid foundation on the basics, while the Rider Tactics will provide you with the essential skills that will boost your confidence riding in actual traffic. Kudos to the team! P.S. I took the Rider Tactics this morning, a full month after I took the Rider Elements. I used that as a prep course for my road test which I took this afternoon. In-between, I did not have had any on-motorcycle practice, but rather, relied on the expertise and knowledge imparted by these awesome teachers.
Monday, Jul 13, 2015
I completed the course in mid June and have nothing but good things to say about Chris, Eric and Deryl. I should mention that I had a bit of practice (3-4 hours?) in parking lots beforehand so I knew the very basics (turning the motorcycle on and off, shifting, and stopping) but my skills were very raw and needed much refining. Chris and Eric were very patient and constructively pointed out the little things that I could be doing to make myself a better/safer rider. Over the two days, I would say 90% of the time is spent on a motorcycle. Deryl was our road instructor and the guidance he gave me were invaluable and I still use everytime I ride. The motorcycles provided were also perfect (Honda CBR125R) for a beginner as they were light and very forgiving. Fast forward a month, I've gotten my class 6 and have put over 2,000 km on my motorcycle so far!
Wednesday, Jul 8, 2015
Completed Rider Elements on July 3/15. I had minimal street bike experience and felt the instructors provided the proper training, feedback and confidence needed for me to successfully pass the class 6 road test the very next day. Thanks and will recommend TNT Motorcycling Rider Training.
Wednesday, Jun 10, 2015
Completed the Rider Elements June 7 & 8. Can't say enough about Chris, Eric and Darryl. Your patience and guidance is topnotch. I am a new rider with zero skill and confidence and was very nervous about learning to ride. The training provided gave me the skills and confidence I needed to take my road test. I left the course with the confidence and skills I needed to take my road test and pass with flying colours on my first try. They were spot on when they said if you knew the rules of the road when going to take the road test that they had provided you with the motorcycle skills to be successful! Thanks guys for the confidence to ride! I highly recommend this course and these three great guys for anyone wanting to learn to ride!
Tuesday, Jun 9, 2015
My husband & I just completed the Rider Elements course June 7/8. Me with zero experience & him having 4 yrs experience. I was pretty nervous the day of the course and worried that I wouldn't be able to get the hang of things & the instructors would get frustrated with me. That fear quickly went away as we started riding right away and their coaching & instruction was so helpful. Chris & Eric were so patient & encouraging & explained everything so well. When a drill wasn't working for me, they took the time to watch what I was doing, explain why it wasn't working and what I needed to do to correct it and kept going over it with me till I got it. The course was way more than I expected and gave me the confidence that I can do this. And although my husband is an experienced rider - even he said he learned things that will help him become a safer and better rider. Deryl was our road ride instructor and he was amazing and made you feel totally confident & comfortable on the road. His tips and instruction as we went were superb!! I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to ride. Thanks guys for everything!!

Completed course May 17-18.First time rider with zero motorcyle experience.Darrel,Eric and Chris are awesome instructors.Their teachings will benefit my riding every time I sit on a motorcycle.The patience and tutorage they provide is invaluable if your a new rider or seasoned rider.Left this course with new found skill and confidence ready to start my motorcycling adventure .If anyone needs skills for riding this is the company.Had a great time and thanks guys.
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
I took the rider elements course this past Sunday and Monday. Coming into the course, I had some dirt bike experience and no street bike experience. My goal was to gain the confidence and competence to pass my road test. I learned more than I expected to, and accomplished what I expected to. Chris, Eric, and Derryl were very professional and gave very specific instruction and clear explanations for each tip to practise. I appreciated their honest feedback and attention to detail. Most of the course was spent on the bike. I passed my road test the day after completing this course, and feel much safer having taken this course. Thanks guys, you did your job well.
Sunday, May 10, 2015
After I had signed up for this course, two of my friends at work took a similar course through another company and told me it was a waste of time; they didn't learn a thing. They must have signed up with the wrong outfit. Within minutes of arriving, we started riding and didn't stop for 3 hours. The course was fast paced (it reminded me of a high level hockey practice) and the drills were very well thought out to progress a new rider. I had some previous experience (years of dirt biking and had about 2000km road time) and I learned a lot from this course yet by the end of the 2nd day, most of the first time riders had caught up to me. The instructors were excellent; very patient and supportive with their feedback. I did my road test 1hr after finishing the course and now have my class 6. I'd highly recommend this course.

Not having been on a motorcycle for 35 years (dirt-biking on the farm as a young teenager), I had friends who are riding and wished I was part of that group. I decided to take the plunge and take the TNT Rider Elements Course. I graduated on August 9th and booked the test for the next available spot which was August 18th. I passed first try and couldn't have done it without the skills and mentorship given from Flaviu, Jeremy and Eric. Thanks guys!
Wednesday, Aug 13, 2014
Thanks to Chris and Jeremy, I passed my class 6 road test today!! Never could have done it or felt as confident as I do now on a bike without your expertise and quality training. THANK YOU!!!!!!
Monday, Jul 14, 2014
For at least the past 8 years, I've been wanting to get my motorcycle license. I have several friends who have been riding since we were in high school, but I never had the opportunity to learn. In fact, before taking TNT's Rider Elements course, I had NEVER rode before. I registered for the course months ago, and without much understanding of how to ride a motorcycle, I also booked my road exam for the day after I would complete the course. This past Thursday and Friday, I did the course. Having no experience really didn't matter. I took in all the information and the instructors were patient with me as I worked on developing the skills they were teaching me. I was able to complete the course and even got out on a road ride on Friday, which was INVALUABLE. The training gave me a great deal of confidence and I was able to pass the road test at the registry the next day with no issues! While I'm still new to riding and don't have a bike yet, I feel like I at least have a great foundation of knowledge that will make me a safe, confident, comfortable rider. What a great experience!
Wednesday, May 7, 2014
I was licensed before I took the course - I ride a large tourer. So I was very surprised at how much I did not know about riding a motorcycle. TNT instructors started us off with bike basics - starting, stopping and cornering through to road trips. I watched while the instructors took timid greenhorns and turned them in to confident riders. It's pretty easy to ride fast. But starting smoothly, riding slow, and cornering safely are what you'll learn at TNT. We spent 90% or our time on a bike. If you're new to riding, or if you've been at it a while, you'll find great value with this course - and you'll be a better, safer rider.
Tuesday, May 6, 2014
TNT Motorcycle training was great, trainers were there to help you every step of the way, and made you feel very comfortable riding, no matter if you were a new rider or just someone wanting to touch up on some skills. Also the fact that you get to go on the road was awesome! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to start riding! Thank you TNT!
Thursday, Sep 5, 2013
Taking this course as a beginner rider (never on a street bike prior) was the key to confidence! I took the Rider Elements course at the beginning of August 2013 and I am now riding my late father's Harley Heritage Softail classic 1300cc. The practical knowledge was spot on and without this course my nerves would have got the best of me! Definitely I will recommend this course to any rider (I'm only 5 feet tall-smaller build) and I can now enjoy the ride on my own Harley instead of being the #^% on the back:) thanks to TNT!
Wednesday, Jun 26, 2013
I just wanted to say if you are thinking about riding a motorcycle you need to take this course . I've always wanted to ride but was a little nervous. These guys are awesome they taught me everything I needed to know. I will be taking other courses they are the best
Friday, Aug 17, 2012
I have been riding a motorcycle off road for a long time, When it came time to take my skills on the pavement I was pleased to see this course can teach even experienced riders a thing or too. Instructors were excellent, thank you all.
Sunday, Jul 29, 2012
Thank you TNT !! After not riding for 25-30 years and while searching for a complete program for motorcycle training I spoke to a lot of riders and TNT's name came up often. After looking into the courses I found that TNT was most complete. From beginner to advanced. I wanted a team that was going to carry me through all aspects of SAFE driving. Merrill and Steve always answered our questions and offered a lot of pointers and were very patient with the class who most had never even been on a bike. Because of the instructors patience and dedication to the class's success everyone completed the course and passed.Looking forward to going back to TNT for advanced classes.
Saturday, Jul 21, 2012
I just completed the Rider's Elements Course today and what a fantastic weekend. Merrill and Jeremy were wonderful. They were helpful, knowledgeable and brought humour to the weekend. At 53 years old, I hadn't spent much time on a bike and by the end of today I'm feeling pretty confident. Tomorrow's my road test and I can take it with confidence. Thank you TNT I will be taking more classes!
