It has been a pleasure Adam !

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 !

Enjoy your riding :)

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...”

Written on: 21/12/2014 by limaoscar (1 review written)

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

“Excellent training!”

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

What can I say!! My son passed his motorbike test 2 years ago, and made me think why not me. I work as a Mayor’s chauffeur and come in touch with lots of people, a good friend who is an ex police officer said to me, try my mates school. I checked Valley Bike School web site, and new straight away this was the motorbike school I’m looking for. It was the best decision I made, all the instructors are so kind and helpful, they push you to your limit in the best possible way; show you the… Read Full Review

“Professional yet fun”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by TahirTH (1 review written)

I want to thank VBS for the experience and amazing time I had. From a complete novice to having passed both my tests first time within 6 weeks. I did the 7 day option spread over a few weeks which VBS accommodated for me. The tuition and instructors were professional yet we had fun and enjoyed our time in a safe manner at all times. Real family feel to the team. The equipment and bikes were new and well maintained which enhanced the riding experience… Read Full Review
