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

I hadn't been on a motorbike before and West Pennine were great. They don't just teach you how to ride the bike, they equip you with all the skills and knowledge that will allow you to enjoy and appreciate your bike in the safest way possible.

The person I dealt with did a fantastic job ensuring you got the lessons and test slots you wanted.

The other person I dealt with and the guys were the font of all knowledge and will ensure you do it right and know your stuff ahead of your tests.

Prices are reasonable and I would not hesitate in recommending them

Pass on my thanks to everyone down at the training centre too, they all had some input into my training. Dave gave me a good speaking too this morning because of a culmination of basic errors but thankfully I'd settled down for the test.

All the best for the future!

I just wanted to thank you for all the support I received from the instructors during my training with you. Terry was great and I'd like to say a special thanks to Chris who instilled so much confidence in me and taught me the skills I need to ride successfully and pass my modules 1 & 2 to gain aFull bike licence.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking it up with you. It was serious training but we had a good laugh along the way too..

Whilst I'm thinking about it, do you have any information on the Advanced Riding Day that you do? I did talk to your instructor Steve back at the training Centre about it briefly yesterday, who told me that he does the training.

I am interested in taking it up, but maybe when the weather is much better ?

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


I'd just like to say a big thank you to Dave & all the guys there at West Pennine for helping me complete my DAS mod on Monday 23rd November, and especially to Steve for all your help – i couldn't have asked for a better instructor!

All the best and good luck with the move!

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…

A big, Lankie "Cheers, Pals !" to the staff at WP-M Training for all your help and patience last April-May.

In particular, a Massive Thanks to Chris M. for his tenacious and resolute tuition in getting an old('ish) novice-biker on the Public Highway and for teaching lots of necessary skills for the A2 Practical, during my 4-day intensive course. OK - so I turned out to be the ONLY WP-MT candidate NOT to pass on that day, but my only dastardly failure was me being overcome by my fears (again !) - my old demons of U-turning and v.low speed maneouvering (50-odd mph careering along country lanes / dual carriageways was a BREEZE !). If only I wouldn't have toppled over at 0.001mph whilst U-turning ON MY TEST ! - I too would've passed.

Having put those 4 days' of tuition into practice over the next 4 months I've had 2nd go and PASSED my full A2 test !

The attitude and approach of particularly Chris gave me an excellent start and now I'm biking each & every single day and LOVING IT ! (- my car's used once a week now, if that).

I really enjoyed my course and my stay in the vicinity and I thought the standard and ambiance of your B&B accommodation was 2nd to none. MANY THANKS GUYS (& YVONNE) ! I'll definitely recommend you to friends.

Hello Dave / Yvonne

Well no one was more surprised than me when the DSA Examiner told me I’d passed. (I was a complete novice with no bike experience 5 days ago)

Can I thank both of you and everyone at WPM for making my training relaxing and enjoyable. Everything was so well organised from CBT, theory test, right through to practical test.

Can you pass my thanks onto John who took me through CBT and especially Kevin who took me from CBT through to conversion?

When I gain some more experience I will definitely come back for advanced training.

Best regards to all the instructors

Andy Holmes
