“Super-friendly, knowledgeable and great teachers”

Written on: 20/01/2016 by ahmed_b (1 review written)

Having had no prior experience of riding anything 2-wheeled with an engine in it prior to doing my CBT (elsewhere) in October 2015, I enjoyed that so much that I decided to dive straight in to the 'big leagues', and do my DAS with Valley Bike School. Even before I started, the guys I dealt with were incredibly friendly and easy to communicate with, both over the phone and email. We discussed my past (lack of experience), what the course would entail, how much it would cost, and how it might… Read Full Review

What a comprehensive review. Thank you. We are always pleased when our students pass first time but even more pleased when they go away and put "safe riding" into practice. You be careful out in "The Big Smoke" and call in anytime for that brew :)

Well done

You did really well to pass both Module 1 and Module 2 tests first time. You listened to what was said and put it into practice.

The Honda Hornet is a wonderful bike... enjoy.

Call in for a brew when passing.

“Could ask for more!”

Written on: 24/12/2015 by ChrisEdwards87 (1 review written)

I went to valley bike school with no experience on a geared bike at all and passed my CBT, Mod 1 and 2 on a 600cc within 2 months with only 4 lessons. VBS not only gives you the ability to ride a bike technically but the confidence through excellent instruction to ride without worry. Very much a friendly/family feel to the school and I would recommend them to anyone. As a tip, make him with you to your tests. Not only is he an A* instructor but also a bloody lucky charm. Couldn't ask for more… Read Full Review

Thanks for your review Chris although I do believe the words may have been changed a little ;-)

You are right in what you say, not only must you have the technical ability to ride a motorbike but you must have the confidence to keep it all together.

Enjoy your riding, and... stay in touch.

“Great Taster Lessons and successful CBT! ”

Written on: 15/12/2015 by CatherineJubb (1 review written)

I first had some taster lessons at the Valley Bike School, followed by my CBT which was a great success! I am now travelling abroad and am able to rent a bike while I'm out here thanks to the skills I learned. All the staff at the Valley Bike School are lovely and friendly, and most importantly they are great teachers to learn from. I feel safe and confident in my abilities on the road after completing my CBT with them. Thank you very, very much! … Read Full Review

Thank you for that Catherine,

Made up that you have made the leap from taster to riding abroad, via the CBT.

The skills that we teach will stand you in good stead wherever you go.

Enjoy !!!

hi, I've recently taken my CBT, lessons, MOD1 & MOD2 bike tests with Valley bike school. what a great bike school! i had little bike experience before taking my CBT the instructors were great i was up to speed in no time. They have a wide range of bikes and equipment to suit all riders, I'm a short fella so it was great when they put me on a lowered bike! They are very thorough i passed both my tests first time happy as Larry Thanks  … Read Full Review

Hi

So chuffed that you enjoyed your time with us and that you passed both parts of your bike test first time.

The changes in the motorcycle tests over the years have meant that we have had to buy "lowered" bikes for both the A2 and full A categories. Obviously, it is important that the bike fits you.

Enjoy your riding and... stay safe out there.

All the best

We are so pleased that you have achieved your goal and that we helped in some way.

You say that "you can't put into words how good these guys are"... let me try for you.

“Never ridden before”

Written on: 28/10/2015 by Gazrobbo (1 review written)

Did my cbt on 10/10/15 having never ridden before apart from the taster. Staff were brilliant very patient and supportive. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Bought a 125 to gain the experience for a couple of months and then I will definitely be going back to valley to do the das test. Have booked my theory for 17/11/15. Once again a big thumbs up for the guys at valley and a big thanks. See you soon. … Read Full Review

“Simply brilliant!!!”

Written on: 28/10/2015 by KamrenGraves6 (1 review written)

From CBT through to passing MOD2 of direct access I was made to feel like I was one of the team. There is none of the "them and us attitude" between the instructors and the trainees. The advice and training was second to none and they are genuinely pleased for you when you pass. I really enjoyed my days with the Valley Bike School and will miss going over for my training but will call in on them from time to time to keep in touch with the team. Put the kettle on guys I'll be over soon on my… Read Full Review

booked the CBT course for my son and me so I can ride on the road after over 30 years since I last rode. from the moment we walked in and were offered "a brew" we were made welcome. the whole day was taken at a leisurely pace and everything explained fully. the instructors were patient and very professional. the afternoon session when we were on the road was a great experience for a novice and again the instructors, with their professionalism, gave us confidence and put us at ease.

You are very welcome. It was a pleasure to have you and your son train with us. As you will have noticed, the whole day was centred around keeping you, your son, and the others on CBT that day, SAFE... the brew is just an added bonus ;-)

Ride safely and we look forward to welcoming you back once you have passed your theory test.

“A fabulous experience, do it now!”

Written on: 03/09/2015 by Karl007 (2 reviews written)

I cannot recommend the Valley Bike School highly enough. They are superb. All the bikes and gear are first class, but their strength lies in the guys themselves. They are always positive, helpful and professional. They are all great folk and make the whole experience fabulous and fun. Taking on a 63 year old who has not ridden for 45 years must have been a daunting task, but they are all up to the challenge. We owe it to ourselves and our families to learn to ride safely, and these are the… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2015 by DJH171085 (1 review written)

I'd like to thank all the staff at valley bikes for their help in getting me on the road. I did the 7 day DAS after having done my CBT with these guys which was a birthday present from my partner. I had the majority of my lessons with one instructor who was really good and certainly knows his stuff. I did a few lessons with someone again who again knows his stuff. They are all very friendly once you start using four fingers on the brake and clutch levers lol. They make learning fun on every… Read Full Review

Thank you .. You are so right. Learning can be fun and we work on the basis that if you are enjoying yourself then you will want to learn more. But, there is a very serious side to what we teach... SAFETY. You obviously listened to all that you were taught. NIL points is an excellent achievement. Well done you !

I cant recommend VBS enough, I have just completed a 3 day Direct access coarse and passed both MOD 1 and MOD2 first time! the instructors are very knowledgeable and patient, I cant thank the person I dealt with and the guys enough for getting me through the coarse.

Hi,

“You CAN teach old farts new tricks”

Written on: 17/08/2015 by Fatpipe (1 review written)

I passed my Mod 2 today and have only VBS to thank for that!!!!!! I can say that my experience with VBS was first class. The instructors are patient, and work hard towards students passing the various parts of the motorcycle tests. The equipment provided is of high quality and well maintained. Whilst I was taking my MOD1 I heard another instructor from a different school being rather condescending towards one of his pupils, making a big deal of some minor mistakes and not praising the… Read Full Review

Thank you for your kind comments. I am sure that Fatpipe is not your real name ;-)

You make reference to the Matt Black. Providing it conforms to current legal standards, there can be no complaints BUT I do like the day-glow additions that you made to yours !

Well done Fatpipe. Enjoy your riding :)
