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

I was very nervous when I first started the DAS course and at one point was even considering quitting, but the constant encouragement and dedication of the guys at West Pennine got me through to first time passes on my Mod1 and Mod2 tests. The training centre is a good size and prepares you well for the Mod1 test. They also have a good selection of well maintained bikes. I had undertaken my CBT with another training school but changed as I found their methods too intense. This proved to be the right decision as I passed both tests with only 3 minor faults. So if you want friendly professional first class training look no further than West Pennine and the rides around Blackburn are not bad either.

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.

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.

Once again thank you and i shall be recommending you guys to everyone!

Kind Regards

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

Hi West Pennine!

iv just finished your four day CBT to test course and took my test today and iPassed first time!

i just want to say thanks very much for all the instructor's help and seen as though I'd never ridden a bike in my 17 years!

I'm over the moon with passing my test as on my first day i was BAD!

I'm amazed that in just four days I've become a confident, educated and sensible rider and I'm sure all the advice (and the odd bollocking!)

will stay with me for years to come

thanks very much guys! i'l definatley reccomend you all!

Hi Lynne,

Just a quick email to thank Dave, Chris, Steve and Alan for their time and efforts in getting me through my DAS course. Great to have spent some hours in the saddle with them all and well worth it. Thanks again guys.

I have attached a photo of the local bike transport here in Pakistan. Personally I think they need some training in proper control and the use of the correct safety equipment !

Thanks again guys, I really enjoyed it.



I thought some feedback you might like to use on your website was in order

I started a 6 day residential DAS course with West Pennine as a total novice. In the first instance I could barely put the bike into first gear, let alone steer it. Slowly but surely I began to gain confidence and was patiently guided through the process of learning to ride a bike. At the end of the first day, I'd ridden on the roads and passed my CBT. Throughout the following days I passed my theory test and progressed to the point where I could step up to the 'big' bike. This was in no small part thanks to the patient tuition of Alan who took the time to explain exactly where I was going wrong with my clutch control. This was the turning point. All the instructors at West Pennine were professional and approachable and they each had an impact on my development as a rider. On the 6th day I passed in appalling conditions, hail and light snow making for a real challenge. Without the expertise of the West Pennine guys I wouldn't have made it. From zero to hero in 6 days- thanks guys.
