“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

“...Simply the best!”

Written on: 30/09/2017 by JulieHarper600 (1 review written)

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

“A1 Experience”

Written on: 16/09/2017 by Nigel362 (0 reviews written)

After not having thrown my leg over a bike for over thirty years I decided that it was time to grasp the nettle and take my full direct access. I am sure I am not the first to do this or the first to have serious reservations about what I was about to undertake. A taster session was duly booked and the day arrived with me firmly believing I was about to make a complete clown of myself. I was greeted warmly and put at ease by the instructor, kitted out and in no time was on a bike in a secure… Read Full Review

Thank you to you all for all the time, patience and expert help you gave me on my journey to passing my test. I could not recommend you highly enough, your all absolutely fantastic.

Excellent news.

I know that we have other past students who have done what you have done but, we need more, just like you, who are prepared to give up their time for the Blood Bikes.

Well done you. Thank you.

Stay safe out there.

“Direct Access Passed, says it all.”

Written on: 12/05/2017 by Leealderson (1 review written)

Went from CBT to DAS with the guys at VBS. There training is safety focussed and the instructers make it fun at the same time. Nothing is too much trouble. They even let me try some of there bikes to help me choose my own bike. I can not say enough good things about the tram they have. Cheers guys… Read Full Review

Thank you Lee. We don't have a tram, but our team are pretty good LOL

As for trying different bikes, it's all part of the service. How else would you know which is best for you?

Enjoy your riding. Stay safe.

Thanks,

The pleasure was all ours. We do understand the issues with anxiety, which can be exacerbated when learning new skills. You did remarkably well and have made a perfect start towards your Direct Access. Make sure that you pass your theory test ;)

“This is the place to learn to ride a bike safe”

Written on: 09/05/2017

Having taken my CBT then Mod 1and Mod 2 with Valley Bike School, I would highly recommend them to anybody looking not only to pass their test but to continue to ride safe and with confidence. I found all the instructors fantastic, personable, informative and patient! I was made to feel relaxed and instructors gave clear directions at all times and gave reassurance when necessary. Having never ridden a motorcycle before I was glad to learn that VBS conduct taster training and everyone was given… Read Full Review

Unfortunately, you appear to have left your review anonymously. Whilst this is not a problem, I can't address you in person. Thanks for your kind words and, like you say, call in whenever you need anything Bike related.

“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.
