“I got by with a little help from my friends”

Written on: 12/06/2018 by davehunt68 (1 review written)

Passed my mod two today with the help of the guys at valley bike school. Great teachers, warm and friendly advice from all the instructors, I will be kind of sad not to have to go for more lesson as I will miss the rides out with the guys. well maybe have to book an advanced riding lesson after a while. I would just to say thank you for turning me into a born again biker… Read Full Review

Thank you .. it's been a pleasure!

And, there is no need to miss us. Call in for a brew on your Bike travels anytime. (Make sure that we're not out training first though!).

Advanced is certainly a good idea when you're ready for it.

Enjoy the Summer.

All the best

“What a fantastic journey I have had ”

Written on: 05/06/2018 by Allisonmonkhouse (1 review written)

Massive thankyou to all at valley bikes I started my journey on a rev and go thought it was a step backwards but the team at valley bikes made me believe it was a step forward the team are extremely good at putting you at ease and making your life changing journey a pleasant and enjoyable adventure and 4 years down the line they got me through a rev and go then onto a 125 geared and finally onto a 600cc very nervous doing this jump but once again with their support and unwavering attitude to… Read Full Review

Thank you for such a comprehensive Review. I remember our first conversation about Biking and your plans to ride a big Bike. You took on board our advice and we are so pleased that both you and your partner have Full Category A licences now. Your decision to ride around on 125's for a while was key to the process and we are so chuffed that two more SAFE riders are on the road.

Enjoy your riding.

All the best

“Simply the best”

Written on: 01/06/2018 by CenturyBugs (1 review written)

With Valley Bike School you can’t go wrong, safe, inspiring confidence and with all the kit you’ll need to get on your own bike, I’ve had two free taster sessions with them, did my CBT with them then carried on riding after having a renewal CBT and subsequent lessons for DAS. All the people I dealt with are a great team and I passed both modules first time. As they say it’s only easy if you know and with quality training Valley Bike School will get you there too. … Read Full Review

Thanks for your wonderful comments.

Congratulations on your first-time passes - now you can enjoy your Bike.

Just to clear up one little matter. Taster sessions are not free but cost £35 per hour and worth every penny.

All the best

“Worth the ride!”

Written on: 01/06/2018 by lindenberge (1 review written)

I bypassed several closer bike schools to do my full license through Valley Bike School. They stood out even on the phone as being friendly, patient and interested in what I wanted to achieve (never having ridden a motorbike before at the age of 42!). Each day learning with these guys was a day off well spent, learning and honing new skills but having a good laugh (in the sun!) at the same time. Some bike schools promise to get you through the test as quickly as possible. VBS get you through it… Read Full Review

Thank you Lindenberge.

I know that came from the heart. One of the joys of our job is that we get to meet nice people like yourself. We're really pleased that you passed first time BUT how will we manage now that you've taken the Sun with you? (LOL)

“Couldn't have asked for a better experience”

Written on: 25/05/2018 by Scott-Moreland (1 review written)

After a year or so teasing the girlfriend about me getting her a bike and her giving me a pretty firm NO! In response it seemed getting my bike licence would only be a dream for the foreseeable future. However I got the best 30th birthday present anybody could ask for with her buying me a full DAS course with Valley Bike School. The course itself was brilliant with very patient and informing instructors that were focused on getting students riding safely, telling us not only what to do but… Read Full Review

Thank you

SAFETY is at the core of what we teach and, as you say, we teach not only "what to do but also why we do it that way".

We are always glad when people ride away safely, knowing that they will come back - if only for a brew.

Enjoy your riding.

All the best

“From start to finish fantastic!”

I first had my CBT last year which went smoothly but due to work commitments i had to delay any more training, then i contacted vbs nearly 8month later to the same friendly welcome, i would say my riding ability was noviced so i decided to do the full 7day course which was my own personal decision as i didnt want to rush, my first 4 days was with the person I dealt with who was amazing in all aspects of teaching (i can still hear his advice now) my final 3 days was with another guy who… Read Full Review

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, you experienced different styles of instruction but, as you found, we all sing from the same song sheet.

When you come back for your Advanced, can you bring this weather with you? ;)

“Highly recommended motorcycle instructors ”

Written on: 22/05/2018 by NigelHammonds (1 review written)

I was recommended valley bike School from a work colleague, and I’m so glad I listened. The instructors are very friendly and so knowledgable. At 47 years old I was a bit nervous to start, but they soon put my nerves at ease. They assess your capabilities and work with your weak points all with a smile and encouragement. I passed my part 2 test without any rider faults. Thanks again guys, and I’ll look forward to doing my advanced lessons with you soon. … Read Full Review

Thank you Nigel.

As I say many times, those who listen and put into practice do very well. That is exactly what you did and deserve to have passed with "Nil Points".

Well done you!

See you soon for Advanced training.

“About time! ”

Written on: 11/05/2018 by Twinnyjosh (1 review written)

After doing my cbt 3 times with Valley Bike School. It was well overdue when I decided to start my lessons on the big bikes. The bike school has a very relaxed environment for learning but prioritise safety. The rides out are enjoyable unlike the dreaded driving lessons, especially around the scenic roads of Rossendale and the surrounding areas. With the sound advice from the instructors I managed to pass both mod1 and mod2 without any faults. My dad and brother have also passed with VBS. I'll… Read Full Review

“A Dream that came true!”

Written on: 10/05/2018 by R1100RT (1 review written)

Sat outside a restaurant/pub with my sweetheart one Summer evening in 2017.A venue used for many ride outs by bikers, a dream planted it's seed! Conversation wondered onto a joint wish of touring around Europe (one day)! That seed didn't take long to grow into a plan of action. (Unfortunately I hadn't heard of VBS at this time). 1st step, CBT was completed. Then as more and more people got to know my interest, VBS was mentioned again and again. In late March of 2018 I contacted a man, who… Read Full Review

What a sad but wonderful story R1100RT. You touched us all with your sincerity and desire to get through the Bike Test. I must admit to being a little concerned as I dropped you off for Mod 2 that the nerves would take hold again but, they didn't and now... You feel GOOD (James Brown).

Enjoy your European trips. I'd probably start off a little nearer to home first though (LOL).

“If you want expert training with a first time pass !!!!”

Written on: 05/05/2018 by robhowson (1 review written)

I did my CBT with these guys , well worth the money and training is 2nd to none..they have a great sense of humour , they're patient and they make you confident. I kept my CBT right up until the last month in which I thought I'd have to retake but, I did my mods and passed 3 days before it ran out which was only under a month with being with them. So if you want the best vbs are it , and it's a pleasure to write this review to thank them for everything… Read Full Review

“Wouldn’t have gone anywhere else!!”

Written on: 22/04/2018 by Fran-sw14 (1 review written)

From the very beginning everyone I have had dealings with has been extra friendly and gone out of their way to help me pass my test. I had a pretty tight deadline for getting my full licence before my CBT expired and they made sure to arrange my lessons around my needs. They are very flexible with the lessons, planning to match your time constraints and budget, making everything very easy for the learners. The instructors are great, they helped me learn at my own pace and helped build my… Read Full Review

“Great school”

Written on: 27/03/2018 by Mabusw (1 review written)

Could not recommend high enough. Very Professional and passionate about teaching safe riding. Being a novice I was apprehensive, but the guys put you at ease and are very patient! Make the day fun as well. Learnt so much whilst thoroughly enjoying the day. I really appreciated that every part of the day was filled and you get the sense they teach you well beyond the basics of the CBT minimum requirement. Even make you a brew! Top job. … Read Full Review

Thank you,

I'm really pleased that you picked up on our passion for safety... it is the ONLY way!

We do teach way beyond CBT on the CBT Course. Riding a Bike is more than the CBT syllabus.

Enjoy your riding and call in for a brew any time.

Great friendly staff that were very accommodating to the short time scale that i had to pass my test. They take you to the actual test centre to practice your MOD 1 so when you come to do it its all familiar. They also have a wide selection of bike to suit your riding style as well as all the kit you'll need to get out and riding. Fantastic staff!… Read Full Review

“Top notch bike school ”

Written on: 23/01/2018 by Gazmet1 (1 review written)

Absolutely fantastic bike school, the two guys I dealt with have just got me through my DAS mod 1&2 first time of asking. This was done over 3 days in January so we met with some quiet challenging conditions at times. Despite this I always had the confidence I was in good hands. They are very knowledgeable and have excellent training methods. The bikes and equipment they use are in fantastic condition and exceptionally maintained. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel very welcome by… Read Full Review

Thanks for your kind words. You are so right, the conditions were VERY challenging at times but, you handled everything which will stand you in good stead for riding alone. Enjoy the World of Biking... it is a fantastic World.

Stay safe out there.

“Passed 1st time thanks to VBS!”

Written on: 17/11/2017 by Jls80 (1 review written)

Big thanks to all the team at VBS for getting me passed first time for my motorcycle test. All staff were friendly and very helpful. They gave me the confidence I needed and helped settle any pre-test nerves. There was no pressure to take more lessons than needed. The bike choice was also very good with a range of types of bikes from 125's upto 750's. I chose the adventure style kawasaki versys 650 which was perfect and in great running condition as were the range of other bikes. Passing… Read Full Review

“The top bike school and amazing people!!! ”

Written on: 06/11/2017 by Lucie1.11.17 (1 review written)

I had been a complete novice when I had my first taster session at Valley Bike School and the instructors were great from the day one. I had passed my CBT and started to prepare for direct access. Me being me, pushing myself too hard I had lost confidence halfway through. But Valley Bike School is not just any school. The people there are amazing and they don’t give up on you! With their support, patience, their love for motorbikes and great sense of humour I am now a proud owner of a full… Read Full Review

“Couldn't recommend them more! ”

Written on: 03/10/2017 by Stuart387 (1 review written)

From the moment I did a taster session here two years ago, I had no previous experience with bikes at all, so I was quite clumsy and nervous! But I was instantly put to ease and all of the instructors are so relaxed and are lovely people. The fact that they're so laid back, understanding and patient just makes the whole experience that much more fun! Because that's what it's about, learning and having fun! Even before I went in for my tests, they all helped to put me at ease and it worked, I… Read Full Review

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Valley Bike School - you are simply the best! From the moment I arrived for my taster session as a very ‘green’, very nervous learner with no knowledge or miles under my belt, I was put at ease, reassured I was in totally safe hands and made to feel no question was too trivial. I was hooked. The taster led to my CBT where the basic principles of how a motorbike works, what to wear, how to ride and stay safe were explained in… Read Full Review
