We would really appreciate a few moments of your time to complete this short form.
Here are some of our past students, and their experience.
My husband and I just
My husband and I just took the Too Cool Motorcycle School course for beginners in October. Weather cooperated and it was glorious! Neither of us had any experience, no bike, not gear and definitely no clue! Trev and Damon were OUTSTANDING. I’m a teacher and I know what it takes to design learning incrementally to ensure student success. These guys did more than show you how to ride motorcycle, they guided, coached, empathized and supported each of us in the course in a very personalized way. Having never driven a motorcycle before I didn’t know what I didn’t know and didn’t know what I wanted in a machine beyond colour, lines and brand (right Damon?!) through the 4 days I drove 6 different machines and have much better sense of who I am on a bike and which bike will make me comfortable and a better rider. The rode ride on day 4 was one of the most exhilarating experiences I’ve ever had. It is mind blowing that we can go from 0 (on day 1) to 100 (on day 4 – Stoney Trail). Looking forward to being part of the TooCool family for years to come. Looking for my next 23! Thanks Trev and Damon!
After having a accident on
After having a accident on the Deerfoot I took the course to build my confidence again. The whole too cool team was very supportive and I learned so much. Thank you!!!
Hands down, the best course
Hands down, the best course out there,
I took the basic motorcycle course last August/September. This was my second course – took a basic course with one of Too Cool’s competitors. I can tell you that I wish I had taken the Too Cool course from the start. If you want an excellent, informative, well organized course, Too Cool should be your choice. If you want to learn how to safely and competently operate a motorcycle, Too Cool is the only choice. I was a terrified beginner at the start but rode confidently on the road test at the end thanks to Trevor’s instruction and positive support. Don’t waste your money on other courses – Too Cool was recommended to me by an experienced rider and I’m thankful I took her advice.
What a great experience from
What a great experience from the at home study material to the time I was riding down the road – throughly fantastic. As someone who had never ridden a motorcycle I was very nervous to say the least. The instructors at Too Cool were professional, through in their instruction and very patient and kind. The behind the scenes office staff were great at answering all my questions and maintaining the highest level of professionalism. I had Trevor and Dana as my instructors and the knowledge, experience and passion they brought to the course were nothing short of amazing. I felt fully supported throughout and with their help am now enjoying riding my motorcycle.
I got my m/c license
I got my m/c license in 2004 from Too Cool after many years of not riding a bike. Thought it prudent to refresh my skills properly. Instructors, instructions and teaching technique were top notch and instrumental in passing the exam. There are other motorcycle schools in Calgary but I doubt if any put in the time & passion to teaching you as well as Too Cool.
Awesome experience and those instructors
Awesome experience and those instructors are magicians. Imagine that. On Monday you have never been on a bike in your life. You don’t know how to turn it on. On Thursday, you go for a ride, in real life. Going 30, 50, 80 and even 100 on the highway. They make you feel like you are confident enough, you have enough skills in you to actually do it. You can ride without taking a course. It’s not mandatory. But you will definitely miss a really cool experience.
When life throws you a curve …. lean in – My New Life Motto
I cant thank Trevor, Renee, Jay and Brent, enough for all they taught me and the encouragement and confidence they gave me. I took the 4 day gold course this year in early April and learned so much from them. I transitioned those learnings to my own brand new cruiser quite easily. Two weeks ago, I took the Test Prep class and then went online to book the test. Two days ago I showed up at the Registry for my class 6 test on my bike (1100cc) and nailed it. I didn’t use the Too Cool testing link because I couldn’t get in quickly and wanted to get it done. Road test was filled with tons of road construction, stop and go traffic, and two drivers who seemed hell bent on taking me out. But I used the skills “Too Cool” taught in class and navigated it all safely and fearlessly because I trusted in my training. After the road test, the Examiner said to me “not sure who your instructors were, but they did a great job. Good ride in tough conditions….. now here’s your class 6”. When I told him it was “Too Cool”, he just smiled and nodded. So thanks again guys, You took me from never having driven myself on a bike to being a fully licensed class 6 rider with my own bike in less than 2 months.
Too Cool Motorcycle School ROCKS!I
Too Cool Motorcycle School ROCKS!
I just completed the 4 days of training with the Too Cool Motorcycle School and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! The instructors we had were top notch and provided us with all the skills and requirements to safety ride a motorcycle, I have been a passenger with my husband and wanted to be able to get my own bike and heard Too Cool was the way to go and were they ever right! Trevor and Dan were amazing, after our 2.5 hr road ride this evening in the cold and rain and being able to use all the training they provided to us during the last 4 days I now feel so confident that I can’t wait to get my own bike and start to enjoy this awesome adventure……If you are looking to learn to ride a Motorcycle then stop right here and sign up with the folks at The Too Cool Motorcycle School…. you will not be disappointed! You guys ROCK!!!! Tks so much for making my riding experience so amazing!!! Can’t wait to catch up and hopefully ride with you all again! Cheers 🙂
a truly amazing experience!
Now that I’ve graduated, I miss the class very much! I was truly amazing to start on Monday night without any riding experience and nervous to the fourth night doing a full road ride with confidence. I can’t say enough about how great Trevor, Rene, Brent, and Jamie were as instructors. They were also so positive and encouraging. It was all the little touches such as memorizing everyone’s name, always a handshake when showing up and at the end of the class. Trevor’s stories made it real and unforgettable.
I would recommend TooCool to anyone even if you just want to do something out of your comfort zone and go away with new skills and confidence.
Best training I ever got.
When I was 20 I got a bike and just got on the road, back then that’s just how it was done. One day a senior crept into my lane. I booted her car (bad idea) and she went back into her lane. What freaked me out was she never looked to see where the noise came from, it was like this sort of thing happened all the time to her. I hung up my helmet, but riding stayed on my bucket list and the bug bit me again last year. This time I knew I needed to ‘do it right’ and get professional training. I had some work conflicts but the guys managed to squeeze me into a class that fit my schedule and the 3 days I spent on-bike in the course changed my life. I really mean that. The drills and practice I did gave me skills and confidence (but not too much). I was nervous going on the road ride but by the time it was over I knew: 1) how to avoid problems in traffic like the one that stopped me from riding so many years ago, 2) what kind of bike would make me a better rider and do and go where I wanted to take it, and 3) that I couldn’t wait to do my road test and get that badge of accomplishment, a class 6 endorsement on my licence. The only regret I have is not taking this course years ago.
Best Experience Ever
I rarely do google reviews on Companies, this is one I had to do because anyone who is looking to learn how to ride and for those that have been riding for years – you need to come to Too Cool! Trevor, Rene and Danya (Spelling?) were outstanding. They break down information that is easy to understand, build confidence and entertain you with their off-the-wall humor. These guys work really hard to make sure you get what you paid for – I couldn’t wait to get back the next day to do the drills and practices, I took the 4 day Gold Course and enjoyed every minute, got tons of riding in – Yippee! Thanks guys, really appreciate all your patience and fun-filled days!
Fun, “Too Cool”, and Worth It
One of the best experiences. The instructors, Trevor, Rene and Brent were amazing! I can only imagine how long it would take to be introduced to all the techniques without their help. Well, I kinda can….. And it would certainty be the hard way.
Thanks guys! You are all rockstars! Way “Too Cool”
Super worth your while
so happy i took this course. very passionate and patient and knowledgable instructors.
we all started fresh, and after 3 long evenings on the lot – on the fouth one we were all ready for the road, little nervous, but well prepared and happy. thank you too cool.
i plan to go back for more training actually, and i warmly recommend this to all.
A Must For Anyone using Pavement!!!
I just finished the basic course last week. This course is a must for anyone using public roads, even if just to get educated about the great sport of motorcycling. The instructors, Trevor, Rene, and Brent represent the best of what motorcycling is all about; fun, constant learning, making everyone feel welcomed & worthy of learning from the best, and let’s not forget the best of sarcasm, weird but useful humor. These gentlemen know how to teach while making it feel like a vacation! I can’t recommend this course enough. I miss these guys already, and the wonderful students who were part of our class. A million and one thanks!!!!!!!
My son attended this motorcycle training….
Even though i’m an old rider, as a father i was a bit nervous with this idea of him to join me in the future and to ride together, specially when he was only 16.
It has been a year since he finished the training……and now we ride the wind together. You guys did a wonderful work!!
He has become a confident rider and also turned into my mentor as he point out the good riding tips you guys taught him…..you can appreciate that i did also indirectly benefited from the professional training that too cool provides.
Just finished my course with
Just finished my course with Trevor, Lanchi and Daynon. I cannot recommend Too Cool enough. After having a bad experience with another teacher that left me in tears and totally unconfident and not wanting to get on a motorcycle, Too Cool has restored my desire to ride. They were safe, positive, encouraging, fun and patient. This is their passion and they truly want their students to succeed. They also have several options after you are done the course to enhance your skills and get your license and stay connected with the motorcycle community. Money well spent. Can’t wait to come back with my own bike to improve on what I have learned. Thank you so much.
Simply the best…
Hands down, the most hands on course I have ever taken! The instructors (Trevor, Rene and Brent) are so passionate about the sport, safety, and everything related. They were patient, kind and supportive. They provided encouragement and positive reinforcement when things just didn’t click. The positive energy that radiated on the course was contagious. The road ride was an excellent way to “practice” our skills…I am looking forward to obtaining my Class 6! I didn’t want it to end and…it was an amazing experience!
Thanks Too Cool Team for allowing me to become a student and learn with you! I have already recommended you to friends and will continue to do so!
Lanchi – thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions in a professional, prompt manner…much appreciated! You deserve more credit that you receive!
Great foundation. Great staff. Great experience.
he course was AMAZING. Well put together – they had all the equipment needed and laid it out for you each day. The staff was knowledgeable, approachable, and fun – their years of experience shows! I came out a confident rider and would recommend any rider (new or experienced) to take it.
I wanted to let you
I wanted to let you know that this was one of the coolest courses I have ever taken. Great instructors, great equipment and a genuine interest in their students safety and well being. I was comfortable heading onto the streets of Calgary knowing that I was trained by such professionals who treated me like I was important to them. They represent the sport of motorcycling with passion and enthusiasm. It’s taken me about 25 years to work up the courage to try this sport. Thank you Trevor, thank you Daynon. One of my favourite quotes and the way I try to live life is below, and to me, Trevor and the team embody this thinking. Get out there and explore!
“You are in danger of living a life so comfortable and soft that you will die without ever realizing your true potential” – David Goggins
A brilliant course
The course was excellent. The facilities, instructors and equipment were all first rate. As someone who rode for almost a decade but had not been on a bike for almost 30 years this course was just what I needed. The instruction was first class – even if some of the jokes were a bit corney. The instructors were very focused on extracting the best from each student. The great thing about this course is that not only does it show you how to pass the test but it also teaches you how to survive on real roads.
Premier experience !!I had ridden
Premier experience !!
I had ridden a motorcycle/dirt bike from the time I was 10ish to 17. Helped set up CMA sanctioned track and thought I was a good rider. I didn’t touch a bike for 40 ish years and decided (mid life crisis??) I should do it again. This time I wanted to do some road riding and after all that time I decided I should take a course, even though I “knew” how to ride !!!! I wanted to utilize the course to get my balance back and just the general skills brushed back up. I researched and decided on Too Cool after reading the reviews.
I am so vey glad I did.
I learned more in the few weeks of the school than I had ever known before. I had always struggled tight turning my light dirt bike in the “old Days”. I am now, easily, able to take a 1000lb cruiser and turn it around in any space without ever putting my feet on the ground due to what I learned in this school. The aspects of safety and motorcycle control they teach and follow daily at this learning center are now my most cherished skills. The best thing is the way it’s taught. There are moments of sheer seriousness and so many more moments of Laughter due to the awesome humor of all the instructors. This light hearted but very serious teaching method is never overbearing nor pressured. They take the time to find the method to teach “YOU” that works best for your learning style.
The other hidden aspect is they never stop caring about you as a rider after the course. Stopping by the lot and managing to catch Trevor or any of the instructors when they are not teaching is like coming “Home”. It’s always a hearty welcome and massive smiles. How Trevor does it I don’t know but he never seems to forget his students.
Highly recommend this place if you want to learn to ride in a SAFE and fun manner.
Basic Street Riding was a great introduction to safely operating and maintaining a bike.
Class was well-structured from beginning to end and the fear-factor for myself as a novice diminished remarkably.
Instructors friendly, knowledgeable and quickly tune-in to an individuals needs and points to work on. If needed extra focus, you heard about it. Love it!
Due to bad weather involving snow, the class was interrupted and protracted over two weeks requiring logistical shuffling of schedules to accommodate our needs and ensure riding safely. Very thoughtful and much appreciated!
If I could give them
If I could give them 10 stars I would ! What an amazing, humbling experience all around. The dedication put fourth by the entire team I had the pleasure of meeting and being taught by is just remarkable. Trevor and Daynon thank you for your patience and for everything you taught me, Lanchi thank you for your patience, quick responses and putting up with my millions of emails to get into the school so quickly… and of course thanks for getting me in 🙂 I am so grateful for such a wonderful experience and will never forget this. Anyone looking to get on a motorcycle, I would highly recommend coming to Too Cool Motorcycle School. I cannot say enough good things about this team and school. Thank you for your time, effort and dedication to keeping motorcyclists safe on the streets !
Experience of a lifetime!!!
I came into class with zero experience on a motorcycle. I did my homework from class time and then, in four nights of training on different motorcycles, I was a little nervous but those nerves soon went right away during our group ride on the road. Words can’t express how impressed I was with the instructors, the training and the knowledge acquired within those four days. This is a true life experience! I am grateful for trying something new and pushing myself outside my comfort zone. I always felt safe while learning with the instructors and I learned techniques to help me ride safely and be a confident rider. Truly thankful for what I have learned and I highly recommend this school. If you are considering learning, hands down, there is no question, Too Cool is the best!!!
Amazing Course!! Highly RECOMMENDED!!
Coming into this course with zero experience driving a motorcycle, I didn’t know what to expect, I was a ball of nervous… On Day 1 when they told me on, that we would be driving 100km on Day 4, my heart dropped… I couldn’t even think of going over 10km… both Trevor and Rene reassured me, over and over…
Couldn’t ask for more patient instructors than Trevor, Rene, and Brent. They made sure they covered everything. Helped me build the confidence that was needed… the personal stories and mishaps really made you start thinking this out more. The humor of the instructors was amazing, and they knew when it was need, and times when I needed words of wisdom or the kick in the butt to figure things out.
I would highly recommend this course to ANYONE wanting to ride!!
Lanchi – thank you for taking the time to answer ALL my many…many questions via email and arranging it so I could be in the afternoon class…much appreciated! You deserve raise!!
To be honest, you guys
To be honest, you guys re the bomb like boom! boom!! boom!!! learnt some things about life i developed a formula that could be applied to any thing i call D + D = D… Desire +Discipline = Delight. D – D = d ….. Desire – Discipline = dangerous D (Discipline) = P + P = P …… Practice + Perseverance = Perfection First off, Don’t blame what ever bike you are giving on the first day. lol, let them choose the size of your gear… hahaha, the dude has been riding for 44 years…. Before i came like anyone else, i had a 7yrs desire, family and friends didn’t like the sports, they felt it was too dangerous. Trevor, Jordan and Rene are awesome, its inspiring having instructors that won’t give up on you cause first day, failed balance test, i thought that was it, my drive home was filled with mixed feelings, 2nd day, i sucked (could even follow simple cones, no sense of direction at all), i almost gave up and said will stick to cars, but then desire was burning and i had to remind myself that i was gathering tools for practise, 3rd day, i was like “these guys would be tired of me by now”, but no…. and on the forth day. being on that road, enjoying the moment of desire, applying all the skills taught, that first step of discipline and thinking to myself, wow!!! am on a sports bike, am on a SPORTS BIKE… with delight flowing through my body…. this is the school you wanna be… cause really the greatest of people suck initially, got impatient with themselves but had people who were patient with them. besides it was fun playing catch with trevor watching how relaxed he was on the bike gave me a sense of how relaxed i should me…. enough of words, going shopping now….
All I can say is if I had to go back and take a course again to get ready for my class 6 this is absolutely the course I would be taking. Trevor and his crew are amazing people and take all the hard times out and makes learning the seriousness of being free fun and enjoyable. I don’t know about others but the Too Cool crew made me feel like I was part of the family!!
A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I completed the Silver course on Sunday morning 7th May 2017 with a cold wet ride around the city. The skills that Trevor, Rene and Brett had shared with and embedded in me, gave me a sense of confidence and proficiency that made the ride extremely enjoyable. The big question for me now was when to take the test. Today 10th May, I went out with a friend with a class 6 who was willing to ride with me, after the ride he said that in his experience after watching me ride for 3 hours that I should take the test as soon as possible. I had demonstrated the skills, techniques and competence to pass the test.
Also the connections that Trevor shared helped me get a good deal on insurance, listen to this guy he knows what he is talking about.
Trevor and team thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience. Lanchi thanks for your patience and support with all my dumb ass questions.
The choice and variety of bikes allowed me to get a good understanding of how each type works, big hint don’t dismiss the Groms they are kick ass fun.
Cant wait to get out on the road again, the biking bug has definitely bitten me. Hope to see you guys in the next few weeks over at the McMahon car park with a class 6 in hand!
