“Don't go anywhere else”

Written on: 16/09/2014 by MarkRadford (1 review written)

Very good tuition, patient and friendly approachable instructor, with experience and knowledge passed on. I only wish I had found this school earlier when I first started learning to ride, and can only hope that others will follow me with West Pennine. I gained so much confidence after my instruction on the morning of my afternoon MOD 2 test, I'm convinced it helped me pass. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

“Big thanks to WPM Training!”

Written on: 18/06/2014 by dougalmack (1 review written)

Many thanks to all at West Pennine Motorcycle Training for getting me through my motorcycle test. I passed both tests with NO minors, starting off the course as an absolute novice, but that's entirely down to the patience and thorough training given to me by the instructors - again, many thanks guys! The instructors made it a really enjoyable experience, not all seriousness but done with great communication and a laugh and a joke when appropriate!! I will certainly recommend WPM to my friends… Read Full Review

“A big thanks to all at the training centre”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by LeeBuckley76 (1 review written)

I'd like to thank everyone at West Pennine for all their help and guidance over the 4 day CBT to full bike licence course that I attended on 3rd June. In particular I would like to thank the advisor for all the one on one guidance he provided. His calmness and steady approach mixed with a bit of humour to point out my faults was invaluable. To me he made the whole experience an absolute pleasure instead of my normal reaction to tests (no one likes tests and exams i'm sure) and without him I… Read Full Review

“They teach old Dogs.. New Tricks !”

Written on: 11/05/2014 by MaciTerry495 (1 review written)

As you are aware, yesterday (7th May), I passed my modular 2 motorcycle driving test at the Blackburn DSA test centre. I wish to express my gratitude to all the staff and instructors at WPM-Training for your professionalism, goodwill and friendship so freely given during my instruction. It had been a most pleasant and informative experience. Further, I would like to thank my "one on one" instructor for his unlimited patience, his calm approach to my white line encounters, my indifference… Read Full Review

“Money well spent with West Pennine motorcycle training”

Written on: 14/03/2014 by JohnNI (1 review written)

People might think these motorbike courses sound expensive, but when you add it all up you cant put a price on being safe on the road, and the best way to be safe is to be taught by guys who take their job and responsibilities in safety very seriously. Thats what i found with the instructors at west pennine. Firstly the guys know their stuff and secondly they know how to communicate that knowledge across to the student no matter what level of rider. Ive been riding bikes (125s) for 12 years and… Read Full Review

“EXCELLENT TRAINING ....”

Written on: 23/11/2013 by Abid007 (1 review written)

The CBT course was superb, relaxed and really enjoyable, West Pennine Motorcycle Training have a unique style of teaching, which makes it fun but very educational, which is exactly what you need as a beginner as the whole experience can seem very daunting from the outset. I have gained confidence in all aspects of biking. I am overjoyed with the results I have achieved . I am more then happy to speak to anyone if you want to discuss anything further. A big thank you to All involved in the west… Read Full Review

“Excellent Bike School”

Written on: 22/11/2013

Went to West Pennine Motorcycle Training because I had been with previous schools but was not really progressing. The school took everything back to the basics, laid new foundations and got me up to test standard. I now have my A2 license, my new bike and riding. Cannot say how pleased I am, and can only thank the team at West Pennine for their encouragement and training. Easy going, friendly and professional. Will definitely be going back to them when I upgrade my license in the near future… Read Full Review

Please pass on my thanks to everyone at West Pennine for getting me from CBT to full licence and more importantly teaching me to be a safe rider. Ive been out all last night on my bike and whilst knowing my limits having lots of fun on it and feel that Im in control of it not the other way arround. I had the pleasure to go out with 4 different instructors and they all gave me tips and explained things from different angles so that it made sense to me. Anyways thanks Again Andy… Read Full Review

“CBT Training”

Written on: 24/04/2013 by frydrive (1 review written)

Booked my CBT with West Penine in Blackburn as it is local to me and I had been recommended to try them from a family member. After a brief introduction to the owner and the instructor who would ultimately look after me for the day we got straight to it with the checking of the paperwork. Now being 48 years old and not having been on a bike in years you can imagine I was a little nervous to start with. However the excellent instruction and pace of learning soon took care of that. I was one of… Read Full Review

“Absolutely fantastic day”

Written on: 24/04/2013 by Tarmacterrier (1 review written)

West Pennine was recomended to Me by a Freind who had recentley passed a Test with them. I was very nervous,because I had never ridden a Motorbike before, or driven a Car. My Instructor was very Freindly,putting me at ease straight away. I dropped the Bike a couple of times to start with, but the Instructor persuaded me to get back on and try again. My Instructor's Patience finally paid off, as I started to feel more Relaxed, I was able to complete more complex exercises. By Lunchtime I had… Read Full Review

“Pass Modules 1 & 2 safely”

Written on: 09/01/2013 by Bruceyboy (1 review written)

After having completed my CBT a couple of months earlier, I undertook a 6 day (residential-B&B included) training course with West Pennine, in December 2012. I travelled up to Blackburn from Kent, (it was a lot cheaper to train 'up north') and I would recommend the training experience to anyone. West Pennines instructors are all great guys. Terry took the first days training on a 125cc bike and then i trained with Chris on the 500cc Suzuki's. Chris calmly and efficiently guided me through to… Read Full Review

“3 day DAS course with West Pennine Motorcycle Training.”

Written on: 08/11/2012 by LeeNuttall (1 review written)

In essence, excellently organised, brilliant staff providing honed personal instructions. Perfectly situated to experience Mod 2 test routes and real Mod 1 practice and extremely high value for money using good equipment. My CBT was about to run out and I needed to pass my DAS within 2wks. I phoned up on a Wednesday and found the training would take place on the Saturday and Sunday with my Mod 1 booked for Tuesday, Mod 2 Thursday - amazing. Even though I have a CBT and 125cc bike I turned… Read Full Review

“West Pennine Motorcycles DAS Course”

Written on: 08/11/2012 by michaelghoward (1 review written)

I would like thank Terry, Steve, Alan, Dave & Chris and Yvonne of course! for your persistence and patience getting me through my CBT/Mod I/Mod II tests that I took in October 2012. I couldn’t have done it without your help, encouragement and guidance, especially when I was being a bit dense, struggling to co-ordinate myself and forever forgetting to switch my indicators off! So, once again, thank you all and I hope to be back to do the ERS next year! … Read Full Review

“very average. not as thorough as id have liked.”

Written on: 06/11/2012 by Iammoregingerthanu (1 review written)

In whole i didnt feel like i had got value for money. I paid the same for a 3 day course part 1 and part 2 as someone doing a 3 day course cbt part 1 and 2? in summary: a little disorganised and could have been more informative noone seemed to know what was happening not as intensive as id have liked. not really a 3 day intensive course. probably had little over 10 hrs on a bike in total and no classroom work/debrief. Dare i say it not a professional outfit. a little misleading. bit of a… Read Full Review
