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

Professional, knowledgeable trainers who got me through my direct access. Passed the module 2 test with only 1 minor and hadn't sat on a motorbike for 20 years until turning up at West Pennine the week before.

Would highly recommend, they even got me time in the module 1 test area the day before my test.

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

Just got my CBT this morning 15/8/15 after a pretty bad first attempt on the 12th. Went back and did it ok. I would like to thank the advisor for his patience with me and explaining everything clearly. For someone who has never even sat on a bike let alone ridden one on a public highway I was rather nervous but was put at ease by the way he spoke about how to approach riding on the road. Once again thank you very much. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend West Pennine

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!

Hi Dave Just wanted to say a BIG Thank You for getting me through my DAS Test this morning. I would also like to thankChris who took me out for two days and Steve whose constant commentary on what I should be doing whilst riding ensured I put it in to practice during my test. I still can't believe I passed with no minors .... it shows the level of training I was given and I am so thankful to each and every one of you. The feeling riding back alone to the training centre after I passed was immense .... a total sense of freedom! It was a rocky start on the 125cc, I couldn't seem to get the hang of the 'U turn' and it wasn't until the Wednesday I managed to get on the 500cc. Everything seemed to click from then on and the extra days training with Steve paid big dividends for me, thanks Steve. I would like to do the ERS in the near future ..... hopefully get a bigger starter bike first then I can make my own way up to Blackburn ... on the motorway:o) Thanks again to everyone involved in helping me get through, I will certainly recommendWPM to any would be motorcyclist who wants professional training.

Hope to see you all soon, a very ecstatic Jason - Liverpool

Hi All at WPMT,

I would like to thank you for all the support, especially Alan for day 1 and CBT and Kev, he put me through it for 2 days, but got me through my test successfully.

I am now looking for a bike, there is such a lot to choose from!!

I had a great 4 days with you guys, enjoyed every minute.



Hi I booked to take my CBT last week and had no idea what to expect,I was very nervous about taking it, I arrived on Sat 15th in -2 Degrees teeth chattering weather,I have never been so cold! I took the CBT on my own new 125cc Bike having never ridden a bike before. So I got to the test centre at the Golf range and everyone was really polite and helpful,I took my CBT along with 2 other lads, all the time I am thinking "I am the only girl here" but that didnt seem to matter. I was Introduced to Alan who then took all three of us through the training on the car park,how patient is this man? he was brilliant with all of us,after going through the controls of the bike and safety clothing etc,it was time to get on the bikes,we went round and round cones,trying different situations and scenarios,I was sooo nervouse but gradually with Alans expert tuition I settled in to it and took on board everything he told me,the final thing of the morning was u-turns,could I get that bike to do a u-turn? no! I tried and tried and tried again eventually after Alan guided me and instructed me and probably just about lost his voice, I did it! Yeah.. time for Dinner and to proceed to another part of the CBT, oh and a very Hot Chocolatedrink. So we set off to go out on the road with our ear pieces in place and off we went,all the time the only thing I could think was "all the traffic from Christmas shoppers in Blackburn town centre"! but anyway I will cross that bridge when I get to it,so we went out for ages,and it was freezing cold,by this time I couldn't feel my fingers or toes. After stopping for a quick brew,de-frost and rest ,off we wenttothat dreaded town centre,but under Alan's expert tuition and constant radio contact in my ear I did it,we actually went through major traffic in the centre,and every hazard you could possibly think of came at us,shoppers,taxis,buses,cars etc,but we did it and it was great fun,we arrived back at the test centre and all that was left to do was to sign the certificate and I couldn't stop smiling,brilliant I have done it,something I have been wanting to do for years as my Husband took his full motorbike test with West Pennine and he 100% recommended you ,we want to go out for bike rides,now we can. what a great day. So thankyou to Alan who's patience is never ending and his knowledge of his subject is excellent and the passion he has for motorcycling is inspiring,have a great Christmas Alan andeveryone at West Pennine and I will be back to take my full test within a couple of years (I think).

Merry Christmas Billie-Jean Heaton x
