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

Hi Dave, Alan, Terry and Chris

I didn't get chance as was late Friday the 16th September at approx. 3.45pm when I finished my test and got back to the yard and you had all finished for the weekend.

I just wanted to say that after initially failing my Mid 1 - because I didn't listen properly rather than something I couldn't do i.e. Did not park my front wheel in between the cones and put the whole Bike in it - I then smashed Mod 1 with 1 minor and Mod 2 with 1 minor also.

Just wanted to say - as I didn't get chance as you all had left and Chris locked up on that Friday when we got back - CHEERS for all your help and guidance and I knew on the day as I was taking the Mod 2 ( without being Big- headed ) that I would pass, as it went so well as I was doing it, and could hear Dave and Alan's voice in my head stating: Not to close to cars, more life savers, two second rule etc and that carried me through as I was; On it and focused.

So cheers for all the advice, help and training It did the job and if you were surprised then so was BLOODY I !

Off on a Cruise next week to celebrate and just bought myself a Kawasaki ER6N - 2104 plate, 1303 Miles on clock ( Nearly new ) in Black & Green and get it next week or week after.

Thanks to all and keep up the good work

Kind Regards





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

A big thank you to Steve and Alan, for there time, effort and patience, great guys - can't thank you enough for getting me through my test so smoothly.

Safe riding.

Hello Yvonne

Please could you pass on my deepest thanks to Steve, Alan, Dave and Yvonne for the tuition I received which enabled me to pass both modules first time .I can honestly say that the whole experience with WPM was fantastic from start to finish. Special thanks due to Steve for giving me the confidence to tackle Mod 1. I would strongly recommend WPM to anyone interested in taking up motorcycling for the first time or retraining and I wish you all the best of luck for the future at your new location ,I will call round on my travels .

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!

Dave just a quick mail to thank you and your staff on my recent direct access course. i took the 4 day option and thanks to Chris, Allen and especially Steve who helped me with the difficult slow stuff i passed module 2 first time. All the best for the future, I had a great time and it was well worth the daily commute from West Yorkshire.

regards Rob graham
