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

What can I say I did my home work on training schools for my direct access course West Pennine came top of the list and highly recommended and now I can see why. With one quick and easy phone call my course was booked they sorted me with bed and breakfast with a fantastic host. They have a good training set up for doing your cbt and mod 1 training fantastic instructors with plenty of patience and a good array of bikes from 125 cc up to 600cc I spent the three days on and off road training and passed my course 1st time I have had great pleasure passing on the details to friends and colleagues and will have no problem ever of passing on there details SO DONT LOOK ELSEWHERE call West Pennine straight away there is no one else

First time on a manual bike and I have to say how comfortable I felt being trained by people who had a great knowledge of motorbikes. I didn't feel rushed at all by the instructor and could take my time when I was struggling at first, detailed explanations on what I needed to do got me there in the end! On the road was scary but having the instructor who was calm and very supportive on the radio telling what I was doing right and things I needed to improve on made it even better. Got through training and passed! Brilliant! I would definitely recommend West Pennine to any of my friends and family for its knowledge and skills given my the instructors, they deserve a pat on the back! Thanks again!

Hello Yvonne

I would like you to pass on this message to Terry, Steve, Alan, Dave & Chris and yourself of course!

I wanted to give you all a big thank you for your persistence and patience getting me through my CBT/Mod I/Mod II tests that I took in October 2012.

I couldn't have done it without your help, encouragement and guidance, especially when I was being a bit dense, struggling to co-ordinate myself and forever forgetting to switch my indicators off!

So, once again, thank you all and I hope to be back to do the ERS next year!

Dear Yvonne,

Firstly a big THANK YOU to you for all of your organisational skills. Hard to co-ordinate training and tests from thousands of miles away.

Big thanks and respect to Allen whom gave me the confidence from day 1. His patience and professional attitude was a great attribute to the training centre. Chris and Dave also a big thank you for your generous training tips in enabling me to pass my Mod 2 on the first attempt. Please also pass my regards to Tony at DAS.

I Left the training centre on the morning of passing my MOD 2, picked up my used CBR 600 and rode from Lancaster down to Cardiff that same day. The training from these guys gave me the confidence I required to get straight onto a bike and utilise the skills they gave me.

Thank you all again.

Hello there, Could you please forward this to all concerned, expressing my sincere thanks to the staff at West Pennine, namely Alan and Ste for giving me the necessary expert tuition needed in order for me to past my test, which i previoulsy failed in September this year. On arrival on my days tuition after a lenghty spell away , it was like starting again and once on the bike i wasn't far wrong, i felt like i was using someone else's arms and legs, dreadful is a light hearted word, the truth would maybe offend.. I was nervous, tense, lack of confidence etc etc, however Alan took me on full throttle (so to speak) and with his calm expert tuition, guidance and honesty, my confidence was improving by midday no end. By the end of the day after numerous discussions i told Alan i honestly didnt think i was ready for the test, for those of you who know Alan, he took me to one side and gave me the pep talk to end all pep talks (England manager's stuff) and honeslty told me i was mad if i didnt attend the day after as he was happy with the progress i had made that day and it would be a waste not to. Not once did he buckle under my constant 'self knocking' of my performance, which to be honest he could have quite easily have done, and with this talk gave me the boot up the a**e i really needed. So onto the day of the test, again i was with Alan for 2 hours going through basics, until i was swapped to Ste and went out on the road. His expertise and very calm instruction combined with Alan's basic instruction that morning, gave me the necessary tuition and confidence to pass the test that afternoon. Those 2 instructors are a real credit to West Pennine and please pass this on to them. Once again, many thanks. Craig Lord
