Meet Your Instructor

Hi, my name is Pete and I am the owner of Pete Mason Motorcycle Training located in Northallerton. I am an independent training school and all instruction is delivered by me. During a career in the Police Service I spent many years on traffic both driving patrol cars and riding motorcycles. I have undergone expert training, which has given me excellent hazard awareness and planning skills. I use some elements of my advanced training to make my customers safer, more observant riders. Because of the high standard of my training, customers can also be confident in the knowledge that I will remain calm in difficult situations, a highly desirable attribute for novice riders.

Lessons with Pete Mason are fun and informative giving you the opportunity to enjoy your learning experience. Too much focus is sometimes put on the practical test, which of course is a compulsory element along the way.  By learning to ride defensively and using my techniques to self-evaluate your riding, you will have the confidence and skills to deal with tricky situations. This gives my customers a higher standard of riding ability to enable them to pass the test first time round and stay safe for life. You will learn to ride with confidence, at your own pace but more importantly, become a responsible rider.

I am a highly qualified and committed individual, who is constantly striving to improve my skills and abilities. This in turn ensures that my clients receive high quality tuition and a professional service every time they ride with Pete Mason.

My qualifications include:

  • Police Class 1 Advanced Driver
  • Police Class 1 Advanced Motorcyclist
