About Extreme Wheelie School

Steve Pickett from Extreme Wheelie and motorcycle stunt performer Ashley Mark, have joined together to create the ultimate Wheelie School for you to experience.

A Skill for Life! That keeps you safe, its not what you ride, its how you ride it!

Our Wheelie Schools are like no others in the UK, do not mistake this school like any others, it’s an enjoyable Extreme exciting and fun filled safe experience day for both beginners and experienced riders alike. Backed by Yamaha UK with up to date motorcycle no more than 2 years old and up to date technology. Everyone is welcome, you will and are guaranteed to learn something from your Extreme Wheelie day, we operate our school on honesty and reviews from you.  

Motorcycling is a skill for life, and like any skill, it needs to be practised, honed and developed. learning how to control a wheelie is pretty much the same, but wheelies will not happen overnight for everyone as some people may think, or like some other companies may lead you into thinking that they will,  it can take months to years to perfect a slow balance point wheelie, everyone learns at a different rate, Extreme Wheelie will teach a safe technique in a controlled environment, giving you all the tools and knowledge from your day enabling you to leave us and practice safely with confidence, Extreme Wheelie does not condone wheelies on the public highways.

Your day will be physically and mentally demanding, the main key is to be relaxed, all our instructors are here to help, there are no silly questions. There are certain aspects that will work against you, tiredness, distractions, anger, or even stress, most of all aggression with frustration, these are all factors that will cause mistakes to happen and puts yourself in all kinds of dangerous situations, also slowing down your progress in learning. Extreme Wheelie will teach you how to overcome these issues, helping you move forward into achieving  your goals. There is no other company that teaches you our technique that we think is the safest and fastest way to progress safely. It’s a fun filled day learning something awesome, so try to enjoy it. The whole day is relaxed, you will progress at your own riding ability at your , we do not teach fast or 2nd gear wheelies which is unsafe for someone learning, plus there’s no need for speed, speed is the easiest way to teach someone and other schools to guarantee you to wheelie, you have only learnt how to go fast with no control, we are all about been safe and in control.

It has been said that their is only one company that will teach you clutch up wheelies, and this is at high speed! this is not so, Extreme Wheelie will also teach you to use the clutch, this will be only shown to you when its time, and when you are ready to take that on at a slow walking pace, not at speed, this keeps you safe and builds your confidents to achieve your goals. 

Extreme Wheelie are unlike any other wheelie school in the UK as we are all professionals and professionally backed by Yamaha UK and have been running for over 15 years and teach you a safe technique that’s been proven by most professionals and stunt riders, also stuntmen all over the world. All our instructors are professionals in their field of practice; Our teaching ratio is 2:1 giving you a more personalized and enjoyable experience.

About the Extreme Wheelie Teach

The extreme wheelie teach is a mechanical device that allows you to wheelie without the fear of flipping the bike. The 3 stage settings gradually and confidently builds you up to balance point when your ready to do so.
Unlike the electrical devices that some schools use, the Extreme Wheelie Teach allows you to sit on the balance point of the wheelie.
Due to this you will be able to achieve your wheelie in a shorter space of time.

What To Wear

You must provide your own appropriate clothing; Helmet and Gloves, leathers (either race suit or two piece) or a textile equivalent jacket and trousers (heavy duty jeans may be worn at a minimum), footwear such as motorcycle boots or Dr Martins (walking boots are also acceptable).


Although we run the course on an all weather surface, in heavy rain/wind or icy conditions, in the interest of your safety we reserve the right to postpone the course.
