Some of the responses we have recently received from our students...

I had very good experience with them I learnt a lot from them I had never drive bike in UK before I went to the training centre .

I use to drive in India but the amount of things we must learn and they taught me good .

passed my full motor bike licence in 5 days from CBT MOD 1 and MOD 2

Full credits goes to the staff they have a very friendly people to train everyone

I will recommend to any one

First time on a manual bike and I have to say how comfortable I felt being trained by people who had a great knowledge of motorbikes. I didn't feel rushed at all by the instructor and could take my time when I was struggling at first, detailed explanations on what I needed to do got me there in the end! On the road was scary but having the instructor who was calm and very supportive on the radio telling what I was doing right and things I needed to improve on made it even better. Got through training and passed! Brilliant! I would definitely recommend West Pennine to any of my friends and family for its knowledge and skills given my the instructors, they deserve a pat on the back! Thanks again!

To All The Guys At West Pennine

I'd not rode a bike for 15 years. I took my CBT Saturday. The following Thursday took my theory and hazard perception. Under advice from you booked a 4 day course. Did 2 days riding the following Saturday and Sunday took my Mod 1 Tuesday and finally passed my test Thursday. 12 days from start to finish. If it wasn't for the skill and dedication of everyone at West Pennine that would never have happened. Thank you All for your patience and professionalism. What a great Team thank you again.

Just a quick email, to say thank you for making me feel welcome. I had a great time training with your team. I was made to feel at ease with the training and I shall certainly recommend West Pennine to anyone I know wishing to take a course.

A big thank you to Steve and Alan, for there time, effort and patience, great guys - can't thank you enough for getting me through my test so smoothly.

Safe riding.

Kindest regards Steve. (from Essex)


Just wanted to say thanks to yourself, Steve, Alan, Chris and Terry for getting me up to speed on a bike and getting me through all the tests. Getting on my bike and riding off on my own feels great. Your training was worth every penny, especially since a trip to work on the bike costs me £8, compared to about £25 in the RS6. I hope to see you soon for the ERS.


Good afternoon,

I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for all your help. I went from having never ridden a geared bike before to passing my DAS test with only one minor in 5 days.

The training I received was brilliant. I would like to thank Chris for taking me through my CBT and teaching me the basics and then Steve for taking me for the remaining days and developing my skills so I was a safe rider.

Thanks once again for your help and I shall be contacting yourselves for a day of training when I buy my bike.

Kind regards,



I’ve just completed a five day DAS course and would just like to say a great big thanks to all that helped me pass my test and fulfil a long burning ambition to ride a motor cycle.

The instructors have the patience of saints!!! they took me from a complete novice to a confident rider in a relatively short period of time.

I struggled with U turns and indicator cancelling but with the help of the instructors that’s a thing of the past now.

Can I ask that you pass on my thanks to all the instructors and I hope to see them again for advanced training some time in the future.

Also, there was a lady on the course with me called Amanda, can you let me know if she passed or not?

Thanks again…

Hi Dave,

As yours is the only e-mail I have, this mail is really aimed to you and your team. There are so many things which I will never forget (Bloody Gyroscope) (turning my indicators off) I am now checking that my car indicators are turned off correctly. The list could go on. Your team are great and I feel I have met some great people and would enjoy at anytime to ride with any of them. So this is acknowledgement that you have a professional business with good guys who enjoy a good laugh.

I have been out on my bike Saturday and Sunday with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it, even making progress along country roads (That’s your doing)

I would love to come and spend a day with any guy to go for a good spin including motorway driving. A Saturday would be preferable.

My good friend Stu would also be interested in doing the same course as me and may come down on the same day to have a little chat.

Thanks again for the pass certificates.
