Can anyone recommended any motorcycle trainers who teach direct access courses in SE1?

I've found a few old threads on here but nothing from within the last 2 years. Has Metropolis improved in recent years?

Thanks - Do you have a name or web address for them?

There also used to be a place in Wimbledon, using the car park of the dog track. Think it was called Elite (but not sure as it was a while back for me - and before these new-fangled tests that they have nowadays where you have to try and kill yourself pulling stunt stoppies).

There's a decent forum called which will have loads of threads similar to this, and which might give you all the help you need.

Good luck

...if you press it, they will come.

I can thoroughly recommend but they are not based in SE1 (don't think any are). They are a husband and wife team, very professional and organised. They trained me and I passed DAS last November. They are based near Highbury Corner but, as part of the training, will have you ride to Enfield to practise on roads around the Enfield Test Centre that they use. I live in SE1 and this wasn't a problem. The other nearest Test Centre to SE1 is I think in Erith. So regardless of which training company you choose I would imagine they will have you doing most of your training on roads near the Test Centre they use so you get familiarised.
