Garry is the best! I did this course with my friend and as I drove up I said “if this guy can teach me to ride a bike without dropping it ill be very very impressed 🤣”. Within a few hours we were all confidently circling the parking lot in first gear. Very cool experience. I would highly recommend this course for anyone remotely interested in motorcycle riding. I had zero experience before this and by the end I was confident driving a bike. Also Garry has a great selection of bikes to try out!read more

The team on wheels training is awesome. Garry and Allan where instructors to my class, and they helped us to learn how to ride a motorcycle in the safest and best way possible. They taught us the theory and practical aspects and in two days (weekend course) we went from no riding experience to riding it on the streets. It feels like that was the money I best spent (invested) so far.read more

Was fortunate enough to have Garry the owner as the instructor for the 2 day course. He got a bunch of new drivers totally comfortable with necessary techniques and got us driving no problem. He's clearly passionate in the area, and a great coach, I'm sure the rest of the staff is just as great with all of their experience!! Will definitely be doing the advanced course!read more

Great training by top notch motorcycle instructors, Garry and Gunther are both patient and knowledgeable with over 70 years in the saddle combined! They take the time to teach the skills you need to be safe and succeed. I had previously trusted Garry and Wheels Training to teach my son to drive a car, after experiencing training with them first hand in the motorcycle course, I would recommend Wheels to everyone!read more

I took the in car driving course as I needed to brush up before trying to take my test and I was beyond impressed. For the very first time driving wasn't scary and my legs weren't jello after getting out of the vehicle. I feel a lot more confident in my driving and I was actually able to have fun with it. The driving instructor was absolutely incredible and was not only very professional, but was friendly, and a phenomenal teacher. He explained things in ways that really suck and I will probably be thinking about things he said when driving for the rest of my life. I highly highly recommend taking courses here as not only are they absolutely phenomenal but they are really well priced.read more

The range of the bikes is very good, you get an opportunity to try different kinds: sport, naked, dual-sport and cruiser. Overall, would definitely recommend this place to my friends.read more

Just finished the wheels basic motorcycle course last week. It was a fantastic experience. The other riders in the course were all excellent and very supportive of each other. Garry is a fantastic instructor and did a great job of teaching us the basics to riding a motorcycle. I love the fact that they used experiences of their own to reinforce the point that was being taught. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone out there who is looking at a motorcycle course.read more

I recently completed the basic motorcycle course offered at Wheels and I am glad I did! Great instructors one of which is the owner of the company, he is extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all questions we had for him. Safety is #1 here and they give you all of the tools needed to hit the roads and complete your class 6 examination. I had never previously been on a motorcycle but at the end of the course I comfortably and confidently am able to ride using the techniques taught to me during the course. Also a special thanks to the reception/office staff. I had a scheduling issue with work and she was able to get me changed to a different class in minutes.read more

If you're considering taking a safety course I would highly recommend Wheels Training Center. The course is intuitive and well planned out to gain the confidence and knowledge for riding. I had never rode a motorcycle, dirt bike or anything of that nature and by the end of the course I was able to participate in the group ride. Additionally, once the course is done the instructors make it clear that if you have any questions later on about the course, the test, riding, etc to reach out to them. They're happy to assist during and after the course. Thanks Gary and Steve! This course was great!-Ashread more

Gary, Alan, and Ron were the guys who did the basic course for the group. It was fun and a lot was learned from them. They are very professional, very thorough, and very honest with their evaluation on the aspiring riders. I definitely didn't waste my money picking this school for my learning. If you are serious about motorcycle driving, then this is the school for you. Lots of motorcycle to choose from depending on the type of rider you are imagining yourself to be. Gary might have been strict but that's what a great teacher he is as he didn't want us to fail. Alan was very encouraging. And, Ron was the fun guy (thanks for letting us view your victory bike!). You guys are awesome! Looking forward to get the advance skills from you guys!read more

My instructor was Gary (the owner) amazingly chill guy. Love his saying they stick in your head so you become a safer rider on the road.It was my first time near a motorcycle, by the end I was confidently riding at 70km/h no problem. I was also concerned about different bike styles thanks to Gary's wide variety of selection I got to try out different kinds of styles. Since I'm a teenager I fell in love with the CBR250R race bike. Gary also allows students to learn at their own pace which I loved so i'm not being held back or pushed forward with other riders.10/10 had a great experience, would 10/10 recommend it. Only complaint is, I wish it was longer so I can enjoy more time with Gary, bikes and the other riders. After the third class it felt like friends getting together for a ride while learning some stuff along the way.read more

Of all the ways you can spend $500 on over a weekend, per dollar the Basic Rider Course offers one of the most rewarding and fun learning experiences. The Basic Rider Course's pacing and curriculum is perfect for people who have never sat on a street bike.Garry, the school owner and my instructor, was an outstanding instructor that genuinely cares about people and riding. Everyone in my group was different in both level of skill and personality and I observed and experienced how he effectively tailored his teaching and coaching style to each individual student.In 2 days he was able to get me, someone who's never been on a motorcycle, to safely and competently ride on public roads with cars, semis and pedestrians. Garry was able to make a daunting and steep learning curve very safe, manageable and fun! All you have to do is show up with an open mind, be willing to listen, willing to fail and apply what the instructor teaches you.5/5 stars!read more

I believe I will be a better rider and car driver because of this.read more

Truly a five star experience, Wheels Training centre not only offers what seems to be the most comprehensive instruction, but also the best instructors available in Garry McConnell and his associates. Going through the basic motorcycle course, having never ridden a bike before, I saw myself making tangible progress with each session. By the end of the course I was comfortably enjoying riding on the open road. From the beginning of the course, safety was the utmost priority and the school really made an effort to ensure that I and my fellow classmates were shaped into safe and knowledgeable riders. In a 3 hour presentation we were given more than enough to ace the Alberta class 6 knowledge test, and through the on bike training I believe we were over prepared in the best of ways for our road test. Garry took time to make sure that every member of the group improved on their individual shortcomings and would be road-ready upon leaving Wheels Training Centre. In addition, him and his staff happily answered all of my questions via phone call or email comprehensively and in a timely manner. In essence, Wheels Training Centre failed only in the ability to present a single flaw or shortcoming to me; from the extremely competitive price of the courses, to interacting with the instructors and a graduate of the basic course. A fantastic experience through and through.read more

Hats off to instructors Garry (owner) and Rick at Wheels Training Centre! I had been thinking of taking a motorcycle driving course for quite some time and there are many to choose from. I decided on Wheels because of their high google reviews and also because the course is only one weekend long, instead of two. I am female and they also offer female only courses. I didn’t do that course because I wanted to take the course sooner rather than later. I was the only female in a group of 9, plus 2 male instructors. I fit right in and felt very welcome. I wasn’t made to feel any different because i am a “girl”. Both instructors were very professional and very concerned about each students safety at ALL times. I was having trouble with the clutch almost all weekend, each time I brought this up to either instructor, they offered a solution or asked what they could do to help me correct my problem. I know everyone wants to get on the bike and “ride”, but you need the proper tools and education to do so.... and I strongly believe you will get the tools you need with this course. I feel very confident on a motorcycle now and can’t wait to get on my own. Sorry for such a long post... but wanted to get it all out lol. And remember “safety first”!!!Happy riding.read more

You get a wealth of knowledge and experience from Gary, Al and Rick.You can tell they really live the riding lifestyle and enjoy teaching others.I had never been on a motorcycle and after the basic course I am confident I can pass the road test. One day is a few hours of theory, one day going over controls/inspection before riding and learning slow speed manuevers. The 3rd day included review, small group rides on the road and additional riding techniques.Its incredibly fun and I cant imagine trying to ride a bike without having proper training.I'll probably do their advanced course in the future.5 stars for sure.Dont forget your sunscreen though 🙂read more

One day parking lot training and one day on road, it is very helpful to build your confidence.read more

If I have to describe my experience with Wheels Training Centre in a few words, it'd be "They are the best!". I recently moved to Calgary from Edmonton. Although I had already 3 years of driving experience in Canada, I wanted to refresh myself and get ready before I started my job that requires driving throughout the city. Plus, I wanted to get rid of GDL from my license. I called 4 other schools, and all were very pricey. Since I got my first license in the States 7 years ago, I thought I should take some in-class lessons. I explained my situation over the phone to Gary, the owner, and he said I should be fine with only driving lessons. Gary has years of experience, and he is very thoughtful! You could see that he's not after your money but simply want you to be a good driver. He even came to my road test as my cheerleader! I passed the test and I'm officially a good class 5 driver!! It's all because of Gary!! 🙂read more

The instructors and staff at Wheels Training Centre are fantastic. They are easy to talk to, and they teach in a manner that makes it easy to understand and easy to apply the riding principles to the hands on portion of the course. The slow speed maneuvers, balancing, braking and swerving exercises are the key to successful riding in a crowded parking lot and on the open road. Safety is their main concern throughout the duration of the course. The cost of the course, which comes in less than most other courses I found, is well worth course fee. There is also the added bonus of being able borrowing one of their bikes for the road test on the last day of the course. Thanks Gary, I learned a lot and had an awesome time.read more
