“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

“No experience to on the road ”

Written on: 25/08/2018 by JillGrundy (1 review written)

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. Big thanks to the people I dealt with who really looked after me. If you think you can't do it you can, give Valley a call they are fantastic… Read Full Review

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.

All the best

“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

“Fantastic Experience & Result!”

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

It's been our pleasure.

"Nil Points" is achievable but far more likely for folk who listen, which is what you did.

Enjoy your riding.

“A Truely Enjoyable Experience ”

Written on: 22/07/2018 by Tomonley (1 review written)

Cannot recommend these guys enough. I found myself booking lessons just to go out for a ride, they turned what should have been a rather daunting experience into something I thouroughly enjoyed, something worthwhile regardless of the end product of my unrestricted licence. Many thanks to all involved… Read Full Review

“Fun From Start To Finish :-)”

Written on: 20/07/2018 by ianfallows (1 review written)

Eached in my mind from a very young age was the sight of my Dad's friend on his Norton Cafe racer Thundering away from my home up Rossendale Rd and That's what ignited my Love for 2 Wheel's. So Training VBS All the Staff were Friendly & Helpful, Like most people I thought I new everything about riding but as I found out I did not. Mistakes I made were explained in a way that were easy to understand. All the gear is included including the machine plus you get the chance to meet some new people… Read Full Review

“The best biker school bar none”

Written on: 14/07/2018 by hipstar (2 reviews written)

From CBT to theory advice to Mod 1 guidance and Mod 2 success;all thanks to all the people I dealt with @Valley Bike School. They provide everything (equipment & bikes) except lunch! They go at your pace and all their knowledge is supplied in a clear, patient and concise way enabling you to pass confidently and safely. I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else (especially when you see some of the instructors at the test centre from other schools!). Highly recommended if you want to pass… Read Full Review

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.

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.

“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.

“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

“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.

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

“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

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.
