Default DAS Training at Weekends in Wiltshire

Does any one know of, or have recommendations for DAS training for someone who lives in Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire?

I've got a mate looking to do his DAS, but he wants to do it over a sequence of Weekends rather than take a week off work.

Does any body know of places that do this? I guess he'd be willing to drive Bristol / Swindon sort of distance if necessary.

Cheers.

I recommend Kickstart Motorcycle Training. Thats who I did mine with.

However I do not know if the above is helpful as I don't know where Bradford-on-Avon is.

I did mine here and they were brilliant, but be quick as the area is being redeveloped at the end of this year when the replacement speedway stadium gets built.

I was hoping someone would have a lead on the training at weekends thing, but the recommendations are always welcome. I'll pass them along.

Ben

I took my DAS with http://www.bristolmotorcycletraining.co.uk/

They must be good if they got me through. They will be flexible, but would probably need to take the test on a weekday.

Oh, Excellent. Cheers.
Thanks again for everyone's recommendations.

I've pointed the lad at this thread anyway. Also tried to convince him that an SV650 would be a better bet than any of the other bike options he's considering.
