ART's 20th Birthday

Celebrating 20 years of continued service.

How did we start?
1996. Paul had a vision, he already achieved success with the largest mutli franchise motorcycle dealership in the South of England
(P&H Motorcycles), with new and used bike sales, clothing, service, parts & accessories. What was needed was a first class rider training school to match the levels of service provided by all of P&H Motorcycles other departments.

June 20 years ago, Advanced Riding Techniques Ltd was created to fulfil that role.

During that time we have helped over 12,000 people achieve their dream of riding a motorcycle. From riders with no experience to 40 year returners. All of the team gain huge satisfaction from seeing our customer’s progress on their journey with us. Steve M joined us as operations director in 2006 and continues working with Paul to move ART ever forward.
