“Best thing you'll ever do.”

Written on: 12/04/2017 by Nic393 (1 review written)

From the moment I got there, the staff at Valley Bike School totally put me at ease and were nothing like the scary, over-confident biker-stereotype you might have heard of. They are so down-to-earth genuinely some of the nicest people you could wish to meet! Being a young female with ZERO experience of motorbikes, my desire to ride seemed like a pipe dream. I honestly never thought I would be able to do it. It took a serious pep-talk from my brother and some dutch courage for me to ring up… Read Full Review

Wow!

What a truly amazing review! We were blown away by your comments. Thank you so much.

You are the one who put in the time and the effort to achieve what you did in a short space of time. You are right in that you still have lots to learn but, you have made the best possible start towards a safe life on two wheels. We look forward to seeing you for your Direct Access training.

Well done you !

“classic story old guy wants dream of motorcycle”

Yes .... I'm a statistic waiting to happen older guy taking up bikes no experience. I've just completed CBT with vbs and the team are great and patient. I suspect I'm not their most natural and talented pupil. It is fair to say my family and indeed myself entered this experience with some degree of trepidation.. i think the advice humour and professional attitude of all vbs instructor really helps calm these concerns. I look forward to my further module training to get my A license and praise… Read Full Review

Thanks

None of us are complete "naturals" if we are very honest. Whatever you learn, it takes time and application. You put in both and have been rewarded with a good start to your riding career.

You may have missed out on a few years of Biking pleasure but, now's the time to make up for that. And, we look forward to having you back for your Direct Access.

All the best

“Best bike school around”

Written on: 10/04/2017 by Ordog (1 review written)

I started without any knowledge of motorbikes, not even how to start one, I was a complete novice. Valley Bike School took on the task of training me up and right from the start I knew I was in good hands. They're very welcoming and straight away you feel safe because at first these powerful bikes are scary! Throughout my training they explained in detail absolutely everything you need to know and even put up with all my stupid questions :D All the instructors are fantastic, really patient and… Read Full Review

We aim to please and it is good to know that you have been pleased with us. As for stupid questions... there aren't any. They are just things that you need the answers to. Put me in the cockpit of an aeroplane, I'll be sure to ask a shed load of questions ;)

We're pleased that you feel safe... it is the only way to be on a Motorbike.

Enjoy your riding.

“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!

“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

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.
