Road Skills for Life

At Revs, our aim is to support our students to develop road skills for life. Our car driving journey began 20 years ago and we have been conducting training and assessments for motorcycle licences for over 10 years.

Our senior instructor Mark Revill-Johnson has over 25 years' experience in emergency response driving in both the UK and New Zealand, Mark holds the internationally respected UK Police Class One Advanced Drivers Certificate.

In 2021 we opened a permanent training centre and retail store, right on the edge of the beautiful Coromandel Loop ride.

We sell motorcycle protective clothing and accessories for bikers, but we didn't go with the run of the mill products, we worked hard to find the cool stuff.

With more women riding than ever before, we are proud of the range of gear we have been able to source from around the world. We also take great pride in catering for larger riders, having sizes up to 12XL.

In 2023 we are introduced the sale of hard parts for motorcycles. Order online and goods can be dispatched directly to you, or you can order and collect them instore.

Weekends are an awesome time to be on your bike, so unlike most bike shops, we are open all weekend in Summer so you can make us a destination.

Winter hours - Thursday to Saturday 9am to 4pm

We deliver Learner, Restricted and Full licence assessments as well as custom and group training. We have a basic handling skills training & assessment area dedicated purely to motorcycle training. 

"We teach our students to ride safely and aim to give every rider skills for life, not just tips on how to pass a test"

We adopt a friendly, all welcome approach and encourage riders to use our base as a drop in / meeting point / rest and revive stop.

Meet you at Revs!
