“Excellent school and professional instructors”

Written on: 05/12/2018 by 401Lyon (1 review written)

Only took up motorcycle riding at 50++ of age. I was fair weather only rider having spent 3 years riding around on concurrent cbt's so decided to go for full license. Tried a two hour 650cc training session at another school but my confidence was knocked down by an instructors' method of teaching. Dropped in to the person I dealt with at VBS a couple of year later for an informal chat and decided to give it another go. I found all the instructors very relaxed and friendly. They actually… Read Full Review

Thank you Lyon. It is always good to know that we're doing things right and that our efforts are appreciated. You're right about the Hornby but, in my day, it was a Tri-ang (LOL). We are very fortunate to have such lovey scenery in and around Rossendale, glad you enjoyed it.

Stay safe out there and call in when you're passing. Kettle is always on. Text first as we're usually out and about.

All the best

“Best instructors out there!”

Written on: 14/11/2018 by TomE1978 (1 review written)

Valley Bike School are quite simply incredible. Having turned up as a completely clueless novice I was taken right through to Mod 2...Passing first time despite my best efforts! I was trained by several different instructors which worked out great, all had different styles but all with the same goal, to train you to ride as safely as possible. But with plenty of laughs along the way. After a career in the army I have seen plenty of instructors, some great, but plenty terrible. I can genuinely… Read Full Review

“Great Instructors, Great Bikes, Fun Times”

Written on: 03/11/2018 by Leafklin (2 reviews written)

I did my CBT and Direct Access (both modules) with the guys at VBS, as well as 3 full lessons, and a taster session to see if bikes are the thing for me, and wouldn't change a thing. All of the instructors are nice and friendly, not afraid to have a joke or offer you a brew, but most importantly they give sound advice. When you do make a mistake they will get your side of the story, say what you did wrong and why it was wrong, what you should have done instead and why that would be better, and… Read Full Review

“Fantastic company to take your lessons/test with”

Written on: 31/10/2018

I recently past my motorbike licence with this company, and I don’t have a bad word to say about them. I did all my training with them including CBT. Was originally recommended to them by a friend and I would recommend them to any of my friends who are interested in doing their bike licence. Staff are very friendly and make you feel at ease from the moment you set foot through the door, I was nervous about getting on somebody else’s bike but within the first 10 minutes it felt completely… Read Full Review

Initially recommended by a friend. I decided ,after 30 years to get on a motorbike again.

“CBT, MOD 1 AND MOD 2 PASSED IN LESS THAN A WEEK.”

Written on: 28/09/2018 by WoodcutterSean66 (1 review written)

Went to VBS for my Direct access licence, less than a week I had done my CBT , MOD 1 and MOD 2 tests and passed. A massive thankyou to all the people I dealt with  for their professional training whist having a laugh and making it fun all at the same time. Definitely recommend Valley Bike School if you want your bike licence and learn to ride safely… Read Full Review

“Professional, Safe and Fun Bike School!”

Written on: 27/09/2018 by lcg91 (1 review written)

The people I dealt with  are professional, friendly and most of all only interested in one thing - ensuring you are a safe rider! From the first call the advice was sound and relevant. Only having one (quite specific) week in which to get my licence done with only a CBT behind me, VBS quickly arranged a full, 5-day direct access course, during which I am pleased to say resulted in passing the unrestricted MOD 2 test. I would wholeheartedly recommend the school to anyone; whether you are a… Read Full Review

You did amazingly well in your week with us which speaks volumes for you and your ability to assimilate knowledge. In many ways, you were the perfect student - eager to take on board everything that was thrown at you. And, to get "Nil Points" is even more impressive after just a week. Well done that man.

“Fantastic staff and training ”

Written on: 27/09/2018 by Jamesbeta12 (1 review written)

Did my CBT with Vbs and was blown away by all the staff and training, so I made it my mission to come back and do my A2 when I was ready which was immediately after, due to my age I had to wait a few years to do my A1 licence which today thanks to the people  I dealt with  I passed my mod 1 in the morning and Mod 2 in the afternoon! There are many many many companies that do this sort of thing but none I feel have the same personal touch of a family run training school and I cannot thank… Read Full Review

“Great People, Great Instruction”

Written on: 26/09/2018

CBT & Direct Access completed with Valley Bike School. I was recommend VBS by a friend & I wasn't disappointed in my decision to go there. Courses are tailored round your personal circumstance which for me with work & not to cram everything into the shortest space of time possible, worked perfectly. Everyone connected to VBS are really friendly, the instructors are great & very knowledgable. Course lengths will be advised on what you need, not to cost you more & more money. VBS are a very… Read Full Review

Thank you for those kind words.

You make reference to the flexibility of our training. Why should we make it any different? What suits you, generally suits us too.

It's easy to be friendly with friendly people... thank you for taking part in our daily lives over the length of your Course.

“The only place to go for bike training!”

Written on: 25/09/2018 by Kev.H (1 review written)

CBTx2 and Direct Access course. Where do I start?! Professional, experienced, fun, friendly, helpful, the list goes on! I wont go in to the details but I became disabled after an accident and never thought I could ride a motorbike, I just put it on the list of dreams that would never happen for me. The mrs bought me a CBT a few years ago with VBS for a birthday present, thinking it would be a bit of fun on a scooter for the day and while doing that, the person I dealt with at VBS mentioned… Read Full Review

“Very flexible and great instructors.”

Written on: 15/09/2018 by laurakendall (2 reviews written)

What a fantastic bike school! I initially did my CBT with VBS after they were recommended by a friend. The instructors were all really good and adjusted their instruction depending on the student. After that i decided to do my DAS with VBS. I work shifts and so struggled to fit in the training on consecutive days. VBS were very good with this and worked it so i could get all the training i wanted in on the days i could. The choice of different bikes at VBS means that different riding styles are… Read Full Review

Just got my CBT cerificate I have gone from no motorcycle experience to on the road. The team are absolutely brilliant, I did a couple of taster sessions and then the full day every step of the way everyone was really encouraging and putting me at ease.

Thank you. You are testament to the value of the taster sessions prior to the full CBT which can be a very daunting experience for a complete novice.

YOU put the effort in and have reaped the rewards.

Well done to you.

Stay safe out there.

“Amazing service & friendly team.”

Written on: 04/08/2018 by SamRowlands (1 review written)

I can not recommend Valley Bike School enough. From my initial CBT with one man, to all my lessons with two others, I had nothing but support, encouragement and the occasional wrist slap for good reason! Reasonably priced, endlessly helpful, and vastly knowledgeable. Thank you to all of you, I will and have recommended you to whomever I can. They have excellent facilities, equipment, bikes and gear all advised by a group of great people. I’ll see you all in the future. … Read Full Review

Written on: 01/08/2018 by matthew.newport (1 review written)

Thanks to all the people I dealt with  for patiently and diligently getting me through from never having ridden a motorbike to passing the 'big bike' test today. Both Module 1 and Module 2 completed with any minor faults at the first sitting - which is nothing to do with me considering it took me 5 attempts to get a car license! Their systematic, considered, safe and encouraging approach to rider training absolutely paid off. It's been a pleasure to be under their supervision and I… Read Full Review
