“I gained my Direct access licence with Valley Bike School”

Written on: 22/03/2017 by HerbertNeil (1 review written)

I would like to Thank all the Instructors at Valley Bike School for providing me with all the training I required to pass my test. It's all delivered in a friendly and most importantly of all safe way. Great bikes to learn with and an limitless amount of Tea, as long as you don't mind brewing it yourself. All in all a great experience and hopefully it's given me all the tools I need to keep myself safe out on the roads, I certainly feel safer in my car. Many Thanks… Read Full Review

“Although I have wanted to ride a motorbike for a long...”

Written on: 10/03/2017 by JenWarren (1 review written)

Although I have wanted to ride a motorbike for a long time, I was still very nervous and a little petrified if I tell the truth. I didn't realise how vulnerable you feel, also how BIG the bikes actually are or how heavy! I first did a taster session, to see if it was really for me, this was definitely a good way to start as I don't think I would have gone back if I was thrown on a bike and then sent out on the road. It's not like learning to drive a car, where you have a security blanket sat… Read Full Review

Thank you. You are a shining beacon to anyone who wants to learn to ride a Motorbike who has never been in control of one before. You did it the right way... at your pace! We are really pleased that you got with our programme, that you enjoyed your time with us, and that you have now got your full licence. I know you're enjoying it as I have seen your comments elsewhere.

Stay safe out there!

Passed my test with Valley bike school in February. Flew through the test thanks to the professionalism and well throughout our training by the whole team.

“Excellent training and pass mod1 and mod2”

Written on: 05/03/2017 by Foleyuu26 (1 review written)

After getting CBT 1,5 year ago I decided it's time to move on to have full licence. I couldn't find anywhere a school where they have automatic 125cc and VBS was the last one school to which I decided to send email and ask if they have bike on which I can have training and exams. I was very delighted when they have sent email to me with positive answer. I have booked my training straight away. After first lesson I knew I made a good decision as I got a wonderful instructor who gave me very… Read Full Review

Its two years since I passed my full licence with Valley bike school and I've finally got around to reviewing them. I cant recommend them enough, so if your thinking of using them it a no brainer. If it wasn't for them giving me so much confidance in my riding and helping me in passing my test I wouldnt have gone on to pass IAM a year later. Thanks to everybody at VBS… Read Full Review

“Fantastic experience from start to finish”

Written on: 03/03/2017 by Timsm (1 review written)

I have taken too long to write this, but id like to take a chance to thank the whole team at VBS, having taken my A2 tests in the winter months I was always in for a tough time, but even with delay and delay, and my own forgetfulness the guys at VBS took it in their stride, always gave me HONEST feedback and taught me to ride safely, not just to pass a test. I am now so confident in my own abilities it's refreshing. I will certainly be back to do my full licence at the end of the year… Read Full Review

Thank you Tim.

You are right about taking your test during winter, it can be slightly tougher because of the chances of adverse weather. Apart from that, it can also be a good time to pass your test as you have Spring and Summer to look forwards to riding your bike.

We look forward to getting you through the Category A test later in the year.

All the best

“The Best! ”

Really nice people to train with and they are the best. Motorbike training is not just about passing a test. We have always be welcome back whether it's for future advice or just to call in for a cup of coffee. After passing my test with VBS the only people I would let train my son was VBS. He has now taken his CBT and passed his A1 licence..... And passed everything first time. Good training and trainers do save you money!… Read Full Review

“Refresher Training after 30 Years”

Written on: 02/03/2017 by Chucktion (1 review written)

2 Hour Refresher Course: Brilliant experience, excellent instructor, great equipment and motorbikes. I booked a 2 hour refresher course after a 30 year gap to my motorbike riding. The School provided all the riding gear, an intercom to hear the instructors directions and guidance and also the motorbikes to train on. The equipment and bikes were great and the instructor was excellent, patient, exacting and at the same time very friendly. The training went at my pace and at all times I felt… Read Full Review

Thank you for the review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your time with us.

You have done the right thing by taking training after such a long lay-off from riding. Obviously, bikes have moved on a pace; from bikes with drum brakes, most bigger modern bikes have twin discs on the front and a disc brake at the rear. The power of modern bikes is phenomenal, compared to what they were like.

We look forward to seeing you when you get your bike. Enjoy and stay safe out there.

All the best

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

“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.

“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.

“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
