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

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.

To all the staff at West Pennine. I cant believe i passed and with only 1 minor mark. for someone who has never ridden a motorcycle before in their life i feel i have done very well and could only have done it with the training i received. I'd like to thank Terry who trained me in my CBT and got all my manoeuvres 1st time on the car park. Steve and Allen who trained me in the days leading to my test. The training as absolutely first class and your instructors are a credit to the company. Hope to see you all again soon when my partner buys me a bike.

keep up all the good work

Just a few lines to everyone at West Pennine following my successfulDAS Test today 8/8/08. I hadn't been on a motorcycle for over 25 years but I have been trainedat various levels driving police vehicles (including pursuit training) and would say that all the instructors that tutored me over the past week with yourselves have been as professional if not more so than all my previous training. They wereclearly very well trained and their techniques were second to none. I really can't praise them enough. Perhaps them most obvious thing is how enthusiastic they all seemed, and I'm sure it can be difficult with some of us newbies ! Special mentions for Alan and Steve, without both I am sure I would have failed. Thanks again. The Canadian Stand up even helped !!

You really do have a great team.

I would recommend you without hesitation.

Firstly can I commend thefacility on its organisation, professionalism and quality of service.

I went from never having been on a motorbike to my fully flegded standard license in a mere 4 days.

Upon arriving on the first day my clutch control was rather interesting but under the expert guidance I was kept on track. I struggled with indicatorcanceling and U-turns started to really get me down, but Alan'spersistence gave me the confidence I personally required in order to fulfill a long term ambition of riding a motorbike.What a great feeling when Mr. Hunt told me I had passed.

Alan is an outstanding instructor, he doesn't miss a thing and continues to remind you which areas you need to improve, but in an encouraging notcondescending manner. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor and was particularly lucky that I had his attention for the entire 4 days.

Alan is a credit to the WPM team and I am sure, had I been placed with any of the other highly competent instructors I would be coming back with similar positive feedback.

My aims are now either; (33bhp restricted) ZXR 400 or an NSR 250 (very smart little pocket rocket) If I manage to pick up one of these collectablespecimens I will no doubt pop down some time to show it off.

Until then can I reiterate my thanks.

Money well spent

All the best in the future,

Joshua Egan

Dave, Yvonne,

Just a quick email to say thank you.

I had never ridden a motorbike before and I was a little wary, I had no need to be, your instructors are fantastic.

The two instructors I had, Alan and Chris were great, their patience extra-ordinary.

I would like to say a special thank you to Chris who instructed me after my CBT to test, he is a credit to training school, even though I was making simple mistakes he never got angry, was always helpful and encouraging.

After passing my test last Friday and chatting with the examiner, we mentioned West-Pennine and that I had been very happy with the tuition, he said he also had to visit the training site occasionally and that he was also impressed with yourselves.

I would gladly recommend West-Pennine to anyone I know who is considering learning to ride.

Once again Thank You

Dear all, just a quick line to say thanks for your excellent service and training to get me through my big bike test today.

I was thoroughly impressed with the level of instruction and would particularly like to thank both Alan and Steve.

I shall be recommending your centre to anyone I meet who needs training and once I have purchased a bigger bike will definitely be back for some extra tuition.

Many, Many thanks,
