“look no further valley bike school are the best!”

Written on: 29/07/2014 by GailHarbour (1 review written)

Being a lady of a certain age I had lots of questions and I worried about everything! No need - walking into the bike school you immediately feel at ease, every instructor is very professional and great to get along with. I can't thank them all enough for getting me through my test. Its clear that safety comes first yet you have a hell of a lot of fun along the way!… Read Full Review

“Simply the best.”

Written on: 25/07/2014 by PeterTB (1 review written)

I cannot recommend highly enough Vally Bike School. Returning to biking after many years, I found the instruction of the highest quality combined with thoughfulness, kindness and understanding to make a course that was comprehensive and thorough in every detail. Nothing daunts them, they dealt with me calmly and with a good sense of humour which is very helpful when I was needing to relax a bit. Nothing is pushed on you, I did everything only when I was ready, not before, which helped to build… Read Full Review

“Top notch training.”

Written on: 19/03/2014 by Gedley (1 review written)

Recommended to me by two friends that had been through Direct Access with these guys (and girl). They weren't the closest bike training to me but it was the right decision. The training from start to finish was great fun and more importantly, got me through Mod 1 and Mod 2 tests (despite my best efforts to fail!!!). It is a business, obviously, but that's not how it feels, VBS trainers are first and foremost bikers who want more bikers to be on the road, safely. There are a variety of… Read Full Review

“very friendly and professional training”

Written on: 17/03/2014 by louis10minors (1 review written)

I used this centre to do my Direct Access. I chose Valley Bike School because it was local to me and I'd read good things about it on here. I had no previous experience of riding so when I initially rung up about it the person who runs the centre with her husband was really helpful in advising the best course of action. I did a 'Taster Session' first then booked my CBT. Paying for each part as I went along. It was really relaxed and flexible to my schedule. I was under no pressure to commit… Read Full Review

“Thoroughly recommend Valley Bike School !!!”

Written on: 13/03/2014 by Packers1982 (1 review written)

Thoroughly recommend Valley Bike School !!. The owners & instructors are all first class and extremely approachable no matter what your skill level. I had previously done my CBT with VBS Nov 2011 but never managed to get DAS lessons sorted, so in Sept 2013 with my CBT looming for renewal I took the plunge and booked for a DAS course. I’d picked up some bad habits in the 2x year riding a 125 on CBT, but they quickly got me up to speed. The level of training is brilliant, no pressure from the… Read Full Review

“FANTASTIC !”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by Gary.Hayes77 (1 review written)

A massive thank you to all the staff at valley bike school! The instructors are first class, they not only teach they really do have a passion for biking. I was a complete novice and I had never even been on a bike before in my life. The level of training is outstanding, I passed the direct access scheme with only 2 minors! Thanks to martin, Tom and Bob. I mainly had Bob for my direct access and i can honestly say he really is a fantastic trainer. He doesn't just train you to pass the test he… Read Full Review

“Look no further”

Written on: 05/03/2014 by gummi (1 review written)

After wanting to learn to ride a bike for many years I finally decided to bite the bullet and do my lessons. After spending some time looking for places close to home a couple of friends recommended Valley Bike School to me. They could not recommend the place more highly than they did, so even though the school was further away from my house than I would have liked I decided to book in my CBT with them. After a brilliant day, with brilliant people I got through this and my mind was set that… Read Full Review

“More than I bargained for ......”

Written on: 01/03/2014 by St2mgt (1 review written)

As part of my official mid life crisis I bought a 1963 Lambretta 150 and quickly realised that I needed to do my bike test to ride it ! Thinking in for a penny I decided to do the direct access and had Valley BIke School recommended to me . Over the last few months I have been having lessons with them and I have loved every minute of it . The tuition is outstanding, always focused on safety and delivered in a way that inspires confidence, you are treated at all times as an adult . The Bikes… Read Full Review

“The Best in the North West!”

Written on: 24/12/2013 by williamsto (1 review written)

I had absolutely no motorbiking experience at all but after doing an hour taster session I was addicted. VBS have an excellent range of well maintained bikes to ride including faired and naked machines. The instructors are first class and tell you not only what you need to pass the test but fantastic bike riding tips that may save your life! They were first class and really individualise the lessons to your needs. A standout feature was that the school had unrivalled access to the module 1… Read Full Review

“If Heineken did Motorcycle Training... ”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by lerxxst (2 reviews written)

it still wouldn't be this good! I spent a great few weeks with the team learning how to ride a motorbike safely and have never looked back. They are brilliant at explaining exactly how it should be done & also exactly how it should NOT be done. A fabulous team to work with - they understand your nervousness and help to instil a feeling of confidence to all their students. Once you have visited and tried out their services you WILL be back and soon be adding the team to your friends list. A… Read Full Review

“Former police who "get it"”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by LeeHambley (1 review written)

I learned to ride with Joe and his team (Martin did most of my lessons) about 8 years ago. At the time I was pretty young, and had to do my CBT, restricted access, then direct access, and finally my full test. I shot though them all in about 12 months. Throughout all my tests, I only picked up three "points", and passed one of them completely cleanly. Joe's team really understand what drives bikers, and they know decent people when they meet them. They're cautious, and can tailor training for… Read Full Review

“Outstanding Service from Valley Bike School”

Written on: 26/10/2013 by baldy754 (1 review written)

I would like to thank the advisers, along with all the instructors from Valley Bike School for making my introduction to motorcycling safe, fun and hassle free. I did look at a number of bike schools in the area and VBS came highly recommended from my local bike shop, so I decided to give them a try. Initially I started with a 2 hour taster session just to make sure I was doing the right thing - I enjoyed it so much I booked my CBT for the following week. The CBT was very well delivered, with… Read Full Review

“Want to pass 1st time? - Go here!!!”

Written on: 21/09/2013 by MrAWild (2 reviews written)

I was a complete novice at the start of the training sessions. My only motorbike experience was mopeds on foreign holidays. I undertook 1 initial taster session to familiarise myself with a bike with gears before the CBT training. I booked a 7 day course spread out over 2/3 weeks. I throughly enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish especially as I passed first time. The whole team were legends as they helped and encouraged your abilities all the time. They were always available for… Read Full Review
