"... Hi Richard, passed my test yesterday with only 2 minors :) just wanted to say a big thank you to Gary, Mark and yourself for everything. The whole course was really relaxed and enjoyable and made taking the tests far less daunting! Hope the other guys passed too :) and went to look at new bikes yesterday, the Suzuki GSXR's look nice! ..."
"... Hi Richard
I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Let's Ride for your fantastic training,which enabled me to pass my bike test today. The patience and professionalism of both you and Mark made all the difference, I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends who are considering their bike test. Off for my test ride on a Triumph Tiger tomorrow. ..."
"... Hello,
I came and did my CBT on Sunday and just wanted to say I had a brilliant time. I was really surprised at how much confidence your instructors gave to the group and myself especially. Having no experience on a motorbike before I was a little nervous about heading onto the road but the instructors were great and very quickly my worries disappeared. I will recommend you to friends as it was such a great day, very professional yet fun also. I can't wait to get my bike now!

Thanks again, really was awesome! ..."
"... Hi Richard
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a massive thank you for getting me through my DAS course, after failing to complete my CBT with another training school my confidence was knocked back and Let's Ride gave me the confidence I needed to succeed 2nd time round
I will certainly be recommending Let's Ride to any one wanting to learn to ride.Many thanks Richard for making the dream become a reality and looking forward to getting my first bike.
Regards ..."
"... Richard, I just wanted to let you know I passed my Mod 2 today and wanted to say a big thank you for your excellent tuition and patient and good humoured approach to it. I couldn't be happier to get my licence after all these years :)))Mark was a star today as well and did a great job giving us valuable road time in the same helpful way in what were poor conditions.Kind regards ..."

"... I cannot recommend Let's Ride enough.Richard is a natural teacher- he is incredibly patient and sensitive to a learner's needs whilst remaining totally professional at the same time. This approach really instills confidence in a pupil. I never found myself worrying about getting things wrong or being "told off" which left me to concentrate solely on the riding.I have just passed my full DAS test and consider myself a much safer, more confident and aware rider as a result of Richard's tuition. Whilst I have only just begun my motorycle adventure and acknowledge that I have so much more to learn (which of course only comes with time); I am certain that Richard has given me the best possible start along this journey as well as helping me develop the correct attitude and approach to my riding.If you are in two minds whether to begin motorcyle tuition or whether to use this training school then wonder no more- give Let's Ride a go. I cannot see how the experience could be improved upon.Thank you Richard for all your help and advice. Should you offer advanced riding training at a later date then do please let me know.Many thanks ..."

"... Well what can i say that hasn't been said already except a very big thankyou for getting me through my Direct Access first time with no faulst on MOD 1 and only 2 rider Faults on MOD 2.
For all others that are thinking of taking thier test, whether it be your CBT or full blown Direct Access I can assure you every positive comment you read on this site is 100% true. Having not ridden a bike for 26 yrs Richard and Tom got me through from CBT to MOD 2 with what equates to 16hrs in the saddle riding (excellant Value) at no time did I feel uneasy or stressed and this can only be attributed to Richards calm and unpressured way of teaching. Lets Rides Bikes are or modern, clean well maintained bikes.Its only day two since i passed my test and i have already covered 100 miles on my bike with the confidence that Richard has given me.
Richard Hopefully i will see you in a yrs time when one of my daughters will be of CBT age and wanting to take her test. Not so long ago i would have said no way but with the knowledge of the level of teaching supplied by Lets ride i will be giving in.
Once again many thanks ..."
"... Richard / Mark,
Thanks for a quality training experience, teaching and building my confidence along the way.Having jumped straight onto a 125 when I was 19 with no trianing what so every. I stopped riding after only 18 months (to wet and cold!).
You guys pick up where I left off some 25 years later and got me through everything first time, thank you!
I am selling my Van Van, and have plumped for shiny VFR800X, which should be ready for me soon! May be I drop in to see you so time.I you have any ride outs or further training that would benefit me I would like to hear about them.
Cheers and thanks again ..."

"... Hey Richard,Just wanted to say thanks again for the training I received from you in passing my test. You probably don't remember me with the amount of faces you see every week - but I was the one living in Holland at the time. I`m now in Australia and I've just completed a 6000km solo motorbike trip up the coast as my first ever road trip . I have attached a couple of pictures to make you jealous.Thanks again, couldn't have done it without your help! ..."

"... Hi Richard, just a quick one to say thanks for getting me through the DAS. You're a great instructor,explaining everything in nice simple laymans terms (i need those),with clear instructions & advice.
Mark was simply brilliant!!! His confidence in my riding is what helped me pass the mod two. thanks guys. might bring the "beemer" down to wimborne one day. Cheers. ..."

"... Hi Guys. 25th June 2012:- had a great day and enjoyed every minute of the CBT course run by Mark. I would like to recommend the Let's Ride school to any one thinking of instruction. Look forward to DAS course asap !!! :-) ..."
Steve J
"... Hi Richard,
Loved every minute of the CBT and would like to acknowledge and commend Marks excellent instruction and attitude throughout the day. ..."
"... Hello Richard,

Just a note of thanks to you and Tom for allowing me to obtain my CBT . Having not ridden a bike for over 25 years, I was rather apprehensive to start with - but by the end of the day I had gained all the confidence to hit the open road!

I hope to book in for the full tuition in the coming months with you. ..."
"... Hello Richard,

Just an email to extend a big thank you to yourself and Tom for the excellent instruction I received over the 5 days spent doing the direct access course along with Tim.

I was over the moon to have passed both modules first time, and I know it wouldn't of been possible to do that without all the time and effort you spent and the expert advice from you both.

Can easily say that the course was the best 700 quid I've ever spent. Think I've already caught the bug massively as I'm in the process of selling my car to a friend for a sensible little Fiesta so I can raise more money to put towards a bike and gear. Also can't get the idea of a trip to Catalunya in the future out of my head, so think its gonna be a case putting money aside in the long term for that.

All the best to you both, and hopefully see you soon to show our new steads! ..."
"... Hi Richard

Just thought I'd drop an email to say a huge Thank you to yourself and Tom for the Direct Access Course, Mark and I both had an absolutely amazing time and despite the rain on some of the days we enjoyed every minute of it.You both did a brilliant job and from start to finish making everything easy, relaxing and all very straightforward so big thank you.Once we have bikes we'll be sure to head down and say Hello.All the best for the future and hope Tom's date goes well. ..."
"... Hi Richard and Tom i would just like to say a big thankyou to both of you, for helping myself and my son pass the cbt test.
Tom was really patient with my son and took him under his wing with one to one training the second time of asking as he found the clutch control a bit difficult at first attempts. We will definatley be doing our 1 and 2 modules with you in the near future, one again a big thankyou to both of you. ..."
"... Hello Richard. Just wanted to say thank you for helping me pass my Module 1 and 2 first time. The level of instruction was second to none, and you helped me become confident on two wheels. I would urge anyone wanting to tackle their motorbike licence to give Richard and his team a call, they are a different class compared to the other riding schools I contacted.Thanks again Richard and I look forward to booking my advanced riders course. Regards ..."

"... Hi Richard,Just want to say that I can't thank you enough for getting me through my Mod1 yesterday (Sunday 18th December) with only 1 hour training due to the frosty road surface. I am amazed that i passed. You gave me great confidence with your practice techniques and your theory explanations.I look forward to visiting you in the new year to complete my Mod2 training and get that passed aswell.Would advise anybody thinking of doing their training with let's ride to get it booked up. Excellent service, friendly and great training provided at a very reasonable price. ..."
