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

Just like to say thanks to the guys I dealt with for all the help with my mod1 and 2 very patient and super helpful with me and i passed my mod2 with NO MINORS!!! I was over the moon thanks guys ill be recommending you to all my friend really couldn't fault them in any way at all

After just 1 day of (expert) tuition I passed my Mod 2. Even on the 1st day of the new test! I can't thank everyone enough!

I booked B&B, but decided to go home instead. The Mrs was struggling with the babies.

I'm not expecting a refund, but do you think you might be able to arrange for me to take my partner to the B&B at your favourable rates?

The more I save, the sooner I can afford my bike!

Thanks again, everybody!



Hello to Dave & Yvonne and all you guys from a very happy Toria! Another lovely wet August day to be out riding.

Just a quick mail to say thanks for all your help in getting me through my tests! You were all very patient with me while I struggled with U turns and slow stuff, and encouraged me when I was getting better out on the road.

Dave – you did say that by the time I finally passed I would be great with all this tuition – and it's taken me almost exactly a month to get from the start of DAS to passing my test with the waiting days in between.

I was nervous when I saw it was Brian who had failed me the first time who was taking me out for the Mod 2 – but see the attached test report – I actually got through with a clean sheet and NO MINORS!

The Bonneville now has 58 miles on her clock – and I've been out for lots of little rides since I passed on Tuesday!

I found it to be one of the most challenging things – (mentally and physically all at the same time!) I've done, but I enjoyed (almost!) all of it despite the worst July/August weather I've seen in ages.

A special thanks to you, Steve and Alan for all the tuition and tips, fun and banter along the way. And sorry to Chris for scaring him to death with a bear hug when I passed!

Warm regards

Toria J


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!

just a quick note to say a big thank you to all the instructors for helping me pass my test today (10/7/8) on the big bike with only 2 minors.

A special thanks to Alan who in the last 2 days sorted out my rear obs technique and U turns.

May well see you again in the future when I get a bike for a bit of additional training.

Thanks again

Just a quick note to say a massive Thank Youto all the team at West Pennine for the excellent DAS course I have attended and successfully completed this week. I passed my practicle test today with only 4 minors ( 3 of those were down to nerves ). The knowledge, guidence and confidence that Steve, Alan & Chris have given me will prove invaluable for years of safe riding. Thanks once again and all the best for the future.

Hi David,

F**K me! I passed my test first time!

Honestly now, big thanks to Alan, Kev, Chris and yourself for the patient training, and good instruction.

Your content and quality of training is far superior to that I experienced over here in Liverpool, and it was that, that saw me thru in the test.

Thanks again to everyone, I’ll try not kill myself in my first week on my ZXR.

Best regards,


Hello Guys, Just a quick note to say a BIG thank you for all your help in helping me pass my test, may I add a FAULT FREE pass as well, Dave, Steve, John and Chris you are all real gentlemen, your professional manner and constant tuition is faultless. When I got back from passing, there was only Steve at the site, so a MASSIVE thank you once again to all of you, I felt a little sad when leaving knowing I most probably won't be seeing you guy's again. I wish you all the very best. I will certainly be passing on your telephone and details to my friends who are looking at doing the same DAS course.
