Hi guys

Would just like to say a big thanks for the excellent training provided by yourselves

What a great bunch of instructors you have their manner is second to none keeping things simple safe and most of all enjoyable.

You got me in when no one else could and even though i had ridden on a cbt for 18 months the bad habits soon disappeared and I passed both mod 1 + 2 first time

Thanks again

Thanks to everyone at West Pennine for their support in getting me to the level to pass both my mod 1 and mod 2 tests.

Special thanks to the geezer from the freezer who is so chilled out - and gave me a brilliant understanding of how to use the bike and the many techniques on how to be a good rider.

Mod 2 test day came - and I rode the way you guys taught me - and passed with no drama - thanks so much for all your support.

I will be booking in for some advanced training once I take delivery of my new motorbike - thank you once 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.

Hi Yvonne,

I meant to send you all a "thank you" email last week after passing my m2, but I was too excited going "bike shopping" to be bothered with mundane things like that...

Please pass on my thanks to Chris for the full Sunday of one-to-one instruction - absolutely kn*****ing, but I think it made all the difference (especially finally getting rid of my dodgy, self-taught, scooter riding habits). Also a big thank you to Steve for getting the core stuff sorted during the week course, then applying the final "polish" on the morning of my test. I suppose I should also thank Dave for sorting out my "dodgy" breaking habits - but I don't want any thanks to go to his head... :-) Seriously, it was good to hear that Ian passed OK - I was quite worried for a while when he collapsed... I did a shift with the ambulance service last Saturday night and told the guys about what happened - they seem to think I "engineered" Ian collapsing just to show I was actually some use even if I couldn't ride a bike at that stage...

I took delivery of my ER-6F today -I just took it to the garage to fill up with petrol, but managed to do a 45 mile round trip just "to make sure everything was OK...." (the shape of things to come possibly). If you need a testimonial for your web-site, please let me know. Also, if you feel like you'd want to advertise directly to HM Forces, either to guys approaching resettlement at the end of their military careers, or guys who are still in via the military discounts brochure/web-site (maybe a way to fill-up business during those long winters ??) give me a shout and I'll point you in the right direction.

Thanks again


A massive thanks to Chris and Dave for helping me get through my full test, like you say ride like you've been taught, don't think i could of done it without your professional tuition ,cheers fellahs.

Thanks for all your help getting me through my test on the 2nd March at the second attempt.

Special thanks to Terry who ‘knocked me into shape’ and to Steve who fine tuned things on the day of the test.

Thanks again,

Hi Dave and crew,

Just dropping you a line to thank you all for your expertise, patience and professionalism during my 4 day D A S course. For you all to get me through in that time is awsome. Only god knows what my instructor was thinking as I dropped the 500cc bike 3/4 of an hour before my test. Not only that but snapped the front brake lever in the process....SORRY. Thought I would never pass my u turn part after that. Again thanks a million, highly recommended to all I speak to...

Best regards Mr S J Ross

Again thanks to all at the West Pennine team.

Hi to all concerned - just a quick note to say thanks for the enjoyable 4 days I spent up there with you - I think the continuous rain was a small price to pay!! Chris - the first day for the cbt was great, you gave me confidence in riding and made it all seem easy. Phil - what can I say?? Two days spent training with you was valuable experience for me. I used what you taught me and therefore had no problems with the test. You said that you expected a clean sheet from me, but I don't like it when you are always right, so I got a single minor to prove you wrong!! Who cares - I passed!! Dave - you gave me the last drilling before the test, I think you most probablyteach a higher level than the test itself, but the hour or so I spent with you was definately worth it. Of course, not forgetting John who keeps the bikes maintained to a high level - thanks, you are doing a great job there. I am back in Maidstone, where the sun is shining and I am not back to work until Monday, so I am just waiting for the insurance guys to open up shop and then I'll be out on my bike in dry weather. Don't know if you guys know what it's like to ride in dry weather, but I'll let you know!! If it is possible, could someone also thank Tony at the B&B for me as I didn't get his email address.

Once again, thanks to all concerned.

Regards Brian Smith
