“Fantastic bike school”

Written on: 04/12/2016 by samgelder (1 review written)

I was recommended Valley Bike school by a friend and completed my CBT with them. Two years later did a direct access course and passed both my mod 1 and mod first time. The instructors are very friendly, helpful and really know their stuff. This is a fantastic bike school that teaches you everything you need to know to pass your test but more importantly the skills needed to ride safely for life, thanks guys I couldn't of done it without you… Read Full Review

Thank you. It is a pleasure to teach people who are prepared to listen and put into practice what we say. We are delighted that you passed first time but, more importantly, that you "got" what we were saying about being safe out there. Well done and, enjoy your riding.

All the best

“Definitely recommend ”

Written on: 01/12/2016 by Markwbolton (1 review written)

Valley Bike School was recommended to me by a work colleague. After a short and friendly chat with them, I decided to book. Firstly, I did my CBT. It was a great day with two great instructors. After passing my theory test, I then booked lessons to go on to do my direct access. The instructors took me straight out and I was riding a 600cc motorbike. The ride was amazing; they take you out over the hills of Rawtenstall and Oswaldtwistle on the way over to Blackburn. There are some great views… Read Full Review

Thank you for your kind words. You are right, the views in and around Rossendale are wonderful but, we prefer people to keep their eyes on the road ;-) You did very well with your training for a good reason... you listened and put it into practice. Now, it's time to enjoy your Full Licence. Hopefully, we'll see you soon to move on to more advanced riding.

All the best

“A fantastic experience from start to finish!! ”

Written on: 17/11/2016 by Kirks1989 (1 review written)

Valley Bike School were recommended to me by several friends and family members. From the moment I made the phone call to enquire about prices, what I needed to complete and how long it would take, the friendly, extremely helpful advice I received backed up this fantastic reputation I'd been told about so expectations were high. From the first day of my CBT, right through to passing my test the service has been flawless. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and have a sense of humour which… Read Full Review

Wow!

Having just read your review I feel privileged.

Privileged to be part of Valley Bike School; to have helped to create a setting where riders pass their test, but also enjoy the experience.

Privileged to have met you and the thousands of other riders that have passed through our doors on their way to the World of Biking.

Thank you. It's been our pleasure.

All the best

“Brilliant!”

Written on: 17/11/2016

Did my CBT with valley bike school and they was very polite and friendly. I was after going for the Direct Access course that they offer. They then put me in for my module 1 (which i passed) and then module 2 (which i passed). i only had one 2 hour lesson with them as well so shows how good they are as instructors. They show you everything you need to know on how to ride bikes. Could not fault them in any way. They put in that much time and effort to make you feel comfortable… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Brilliant”

Written on: 11/10/2016 by Alisha373 (1 review written)

VBS are great, professional and supportive at all times. At the initial phone call, they were very informative and approachable and sent me as much information as I requested. Upon arriving for my first lesson their friendly and personable manor removed any nerves I had about both riding and them. As I had already done my CBT, I went out on one of their 125cc bikes, and quickly went upto a 6-700cc. Their choice of bikes was amazing too. Each day we were out, we were on bikes for as long as… Read Full Review

“Valley Bike School - Nil Points (can't fault them at all)”

Written on: 10/09/2016 by ReeRee28 (1 review written)

I cannot thank Valley Bike School enough! Their friendly knowledgeable supportive instructors got me through my mod 1 & mod 2. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to pursue biking. The Rossendale Valley is so lucky to have them! I cannot fault anything! They are amazing! Valley Bike School don't just want to teach you to get through your test, they want to teach you how to keep yourself safe on the road. Having completed my training with them I feel confident that I can do exactly… Read Full Review

Thank you for such a glowing report. You are the one that did it and, with NIL POINTS. It doesn't get any better than that.

The Rossendale Valley is a beautiful place to learn to ride and we are thankful that you chose to train with us.

Enjoy your riding. Stay safe out there :)

Thanks so much for guiding, supporting and more importantly turning me into a competent and safe rider. The best compliment I can pay the team is that when it comes to my son learning to ride his bike this is where he will go. I enjoyed every minute of it and actually miss the lessons ...Would absolutely recommend the bike school - thanks you… Read Full Review

We'll look forward to teaching your son. In the meantime, stay safe out there.

I completed CBT yesterday with Valley Bike School and cannot praise the team highly enough - they have taken me from a nervous learner( who has never sat on a bike other than a pillion once... to a confident learner who can go out safety and confidently on the road - they cater for everyone and are so friendly and helpful -safety is the first middle and last name at this school - thanks again and I will be back !… Read Full Review

Thank you. Obviously, CBT is the most important day when it comes to learning to ride. Nervous is normal, at first, and with time comes confidence.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your CBT day and that you feel confident to be out there on your own.

We await your return.

Having just passed my Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests with the help of Valley Bike School, I can heartily recommend them.

“The best bike school EVER!”

Written on: 11/08/2016 by Karl65 (1 review written)

I completed my CBT with another riding school and after 1 lesson on direct access training, I felt I needed a change. After looking at the reviews for Valley Bike School I made some enquiries. Due to having a hearing impairment we discussed solutions around tutor to student communications. I purchased a loop system for hearing aid that works with their radios. The instructors are patient and understanding and have a wealth of knowledge to ensure you don't just pass your test, but pass your… Read Full Review

Obviously, you had an extra obstacle to overcome with your hearing impairment but we dealt with it "together".

We are delighted that you achieved your ambition and that we were able to help.

“My CBT day.”

Written on: 27/07/2016

I did my CBT day with valley bike school this month. From the minute I made my enquiry I knew I was dealing with professionals. Everything is provided and the training is delivered in a very enjoyable way but also very personal as each student receives the commitment off the instructor until they meet the standard required. The emphasis is safety. After completing my day I certainly felt like a safe and competent rider. Despite having done 3 previous CBT's with other companies, this school… Read Full Review

I had completed my CBT (via another school) in Dec 2014, I had decided it was time to get my big bike test - so I contacted the original school to no avail. Then two of my friends suggested VBS as they had passed with them. Within half an hour of mailing them they called to have a chat, the following sunday I was having an assessment, then the plan was set. The following week I was out with one instructor then mod 1 training with another instructor the following week, then that was it - my… Read Full Review

Thank you for such a glowing review.

Being a Biker does introduce to an amazing and friendly Family. As you have already witnessed, fellow Bikers are nodding at you when you ride. You don't get many car drivers doing the same ;-)

We are having a Ride Out for our passed and past students on Sunday 31st July. Feel free to join us. In the meantime, enjoy your riding and... stay safe!

Just done my direct access with valley and I cannot begin to describe how much of a pleasant and enjoyable experience it was. All the staff are very friendly, it's a nice relaxed environment but they make sure to drum into you all the safety you'll ever need on the road.
