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

It was an absolute pleasure completing my course with you guys, I cannot stress how good the teaching ability of the instructor was, his calm patient manner and is way of instruction is absolutely fantastic he tailors to your needs and has a vast amount of experience to pull from, By far the most professional amount of instruction I have had in a long time. He is a true asset to your company and I am very grateful to have been taught by him but all this comes at a price of getting the brews in. West Pennines reputation is truly built around the instructors, I can't thank you enough for your help.

As you are aware, yesterday (7th May), I passed my modular 2 motorcycle driving test at the Blackburn DSA test centre.

I wish to express my gratitude to all the staff and instructors at WPM-Training for your professionalism, goodwill and friendship so freely given during my instruction. It had been a most pleasant and informative experience.

Further, I would like to thank my "one on one" instructor Alan, for his unlimited patience, his calm approach to my white line encounters, my indifference to Left and Right commands and for his ability to enjoy the delights at Burger King.

His training methods coupled with his unique style of instruction dovetails exactly to his pupils requirements. He made what at time seem an impossibility, perfectly normal and safe.

I will have no hesitation to recommend your services to my every growing band of "wanna be's" motorcyclists.

Very Best Regards.

Hi there, just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone at West Pennine, I completed a DAS course with you last month and passed both mod 1 and mod 2 (2nd time lucky). I felt the instructors were all very polite and helpful, giving great instruction and advice. Ride safe everyone, thanks again.

Dear all at West Pennine Motorcycle Training, I just wanted to thank you for helping my son (Nathan) to pass his bike test the other week. From calling you to enquire, to him passing his test took less than two weeks! Very friendly people. Nathan spoke very highly of his instructors and loved the whole experience. Not bad for a seventeen year old! In my mind you are the backbone of the motorcycle industry. Giving new riders a positive experience whilst battling the elements (in east Lancs) year round. Very well done and thanks again.

Kind regards,

Pete Austin.

Dear Yvonne, I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to Dave, Alan, Terry & Steve.I was out in all sorts of wet & snowy weather and the support they gave me helped me tremendously. Fortunately I was able to sitModule 2 on a clear and sunny day which made a vast improvement on all the weather I had in training! Without the help, patience and encouragement from all of the instructors I doubt I would have passed the course so I am extremely grateful to all of them. A special and separate thanks will go to Tony the DSA examiner again without whose encouragement I would not have passed Modules 1 & 2, I would personally advise all would be bikers to come to West Pennine and to ask for Tony to be their examiner, with that package everyone should pass. All I need to do now is find the money to get a bike!!! Once again many thanks for all of your help in organising dates and bookings for me and the Instructors.

Yours sincerely Nicholas


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.



First of all ‘Thank You’ from a very satisfied customer. I've just successfully completed my Module 1 and Module 2 DAS with passes first time. You and the team took a complete novice and in 6 days transformed me into a competent rider (at least competent enough to pass!). Time, money and effort well spent from my side.

Secondly I want you to know what a great team you have. From Yvonne who managed my many questions and difficult booking before the course, through to all of the instructors – Chris, Terry, Alan & Steve. All of the team were incredibly patient with my many faults. In particular I was impressed by the personal nature of the course. You & the instructors really sort to understand what I needed and adapted the training routes and schedules to meet my needs. Truly an inspirational team. I would especially like to highlight and thank Alan – who not only has the biggest hands in the north of England , but also has the patience of a saint!

Thank you again. I will always remember my time with WPM.
