“Sensational, Super Safe, Super Cool.... VBS!!!”

Written on: 29/06/2015 by MattLippert (1 review written)

Just want to say a massive thanks everyone at Vally Bike School for everything you've taught me. Today I came home with a PASS for my direct access course. They've taken me from complete novice to a safe rider in 1 month. Had a great time and felt super safe the whole way. They came recommended to me by 4 work colleagues who have all been through their doors and I hope by writing this post, anyone thinking of using VBS will pick up the phone to their friendly team. Thanks guys!… Read Full Review

“An excellent course”

Written on: 18/06/2015 by Chris.G. (1 review written)

My bike training at VBS was top notch. I started with my CBT on the Saturday and progressed to the 500 on the Sunday and then the 600 on the Monday. I did my Mid 1 on the Thursday and Mod 2 on the Wednesday. ..which I passed both first time. If you listen to the instructors and put it into practice you will have no problem obtaining your bike licence. Happy riding :-)… Read Full Review

“FROM USELESS TO TEST”

Written on: 10/06/2015 by Morrisonas130 (1 review written)

Passed my a2 test today with VBS, I can and have recommended them to all. The level of service and commitment is second to none, instructors that have a wealth of knowledge and break it down into fully understandable terms. The best way to describe my experience is, it's like joining a family ! All the instructors know how and when to have a laugh and how to crack a joke and really relieve the tension . I can't speak highly enough of the full team at VBS. relax and smile vbs are only a call… Read Full Review

You have hit on a major part of our training ethos there... we are one big happy family of bikers and if you can share a joke to relieve the tension of the "test" environment, then so much the better.

Enjoy your riding. See you for your A licence soon.

“Get you through your test quick n safely ”

Written on: 03/06/2015 by reecew_92 (1 review written)

Excellent service from all the staff at vbs, everyone is down to earth and are real bikers themselves and know their stuff (listen to the advice). I have done my cbt right through to lessons on the bigger bikes and passed both mod one and two first time. And when doing them met people all around Lancashire and Yorkshire that have come to them. Big thanks to Martin, Tom and not forgetting Bob otherwise he will tell me off lol. See you next year for the A licence… Read Full Review

You said it.. listen to the advice ! Amazing how many novice riders pay for tuition then ignore the advice that they have paid for ! Then, they are surprised when things don't go their way ;-)

It's been a pleasure having you with us. Enjoy your riding.

See you next year for the A licence.

“Getting back on a bike”

Written on: 03/06/2015 by Kellenh1950 (1 review written)

I wanted to get back on a bike after some years of not riding them, what Valley Bike School offered was perfect, from clothing to bikes and of course training. From start to finish I was given professional help and guidance from all the members of staff and as such achieved my goal. Did it at my pace with no pressure. well suited !… Read Full Review

It was our pleasure.

Getting back on a motorbike after an absence can be a daunting prospect. Bikes have changed, as have the riding conditions. It is a good choice to get some tuition under your belt before getting back on two wheels.

Enjoy !

You make some very good points there, especially about keeping the safe skills for life. Module 2 is a 40 minute exercise... safety is for life !

3 days is not for everyone. It is very intensive but, if you already have good Bike handling skills (Module 1), an appreciation of what is required on the road for Module 2 and the ability to listen in to instructions, then 3 days may be enough. Well done Iain.

A huge thanks to all the staff/instructors at Valley Bike School for helping me through my CBT. I couldn't of done it though without doing a couple of taster sessions first. If you've never rode a motorbike before, like me, then the Taster Sessions are so important & I would not of got through my CBT without them. The instructors are so friendly & patient. I would definitely recommend Valley Bike School to anyone & everyone… Read Full Review

Thank you for you kind words. We are made up that you enjoyed your CBT and that the tester sessions did their job. For someone who hasn't ridden before, the taster sessions are designed to get you confident with the bike and its controls on a one-to-one basis in a safe environment. The other purpose of the taster session is to give you just that - a taste of what it is like to be up front on a motorcycle and help you decide whether riding a motorcycle is something that you want to do. Riding a Motorcycle is not for everyone but, without having a go, you would never know.

Enjoy your riding and we look forward to seeing you for your Direct Access once you have done your theory test.

All the best

“Valley Bike School, the best by far!”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by pwhdaddy (1 review written)

All those fabulous people at VBS contributed to my first time passes in both Mod 1 & Mod 2. Within 5 lessons they took me from complete novice to my "Big Bike Licence." All the instructors had amazing people skills and their knowledge of riding, motorcycles, clothing, equipment and any concerns you may be having, were free to access as soon as you walked in the door. If your going to learn to ride a bike, you should only do it with The Valley Bike School!… Read Full Review

“Valley Bike School - Excellent”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by BenP (1 review written)

What a great setup, safe, professional and enjoyable. I looked at reviews and talked to a number of people about which school to go to. Valley Bike School is always highly spoken of. This review is no different; I traveled some distance to get to VBS, despite several other bike schools on my doorstep. VBS is run very well, with friendly instructors who are genuinely invested in your progress. I struggled with a few aspects of riding, however, they taught me how to overcome these issues via… Read Full Review

“direct access”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by BraylonFry (1 review written)

Thanks to all at valley bike school. I had not owned or been on a motorcycle for 25 years plus, so didn't opt for a compressed course, Choosing instead to take it at my own pace. From day one I didn't feel like I was at a training school, more like being out on the road with friends with A wealth of advice and knowledge. Even though I was going at my own steady pace valley bike school had me from c.b.t to passing mod 2 In around 8 weeks, and that includes a cancelled lesson due to ice and… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Learning Curve”

Written on: 09/01/2015

Valley Bike School is a fantastic company who I went with to do my CBT and full bike licence. They are the most down to earth knowledgable people I have ever met. The instructors are ex police and have so much road experience that you feel comfortable knowing that the information and tips they give you is for your own safety and for a reason. I absolutely loved getting suited up and jumping on a bike to go out for a lesson on a cold morning where you're totally focused on the road ahead whilst… Read Full Review

I recently passed my motorcycle test with Valley bike school, but wanted to share my experience. After speaking to the staff it immediately came across to me that they are exceptionally passionate about biking and the safety of all bikers. The CBT course was great, relaxed and really enjoyable, the staff have a great manner and 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… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your time going to another bike school”

Written on: 07/11/2014 by MikeHunt-TL (1 review written)

I was pretty nervous about starting my 'big bike' license process until I actually first got on the bike at VBS. The instructors are more like friends showing you how to ride safely than teachers. They made me feel comfortable and made it an enjoyable experience were I thought I would be judged and possibly ripped off as I've previously experienced. I would pay a lot more for the service I received and passing first time was a bonus and would certainly not go for one of the cheaper courses at… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2014 by IanJ2014 (1 review written)

I cannot recommend VBS highly enough. I had previously done my CBT with another bike school and it had almost put me off riding as they were impatient with learners and pushed you more than you felt comfortable. Thankfully I found VBS and after an initial assesment I took the Direct Access route. I was able to book my lessons around the times that suited me. The instructors were very patient and allowed me to learn at my own pace without pushing me further than I felt comfortable. The… Read Full Review
