Just yo let you know how impressed I am with the CBT training I had on Monday
It was very thorough and safe

"... Hi Richard. What a great day, Tom is the man hats off to him what a good teacher, very thorough and safety paramount.Will be in touch for my Direct Access, many thanks to Lets-Ride for taking me through my CBT test. ..."
"... Rich,I got off that yamaha on 7th July at Poole test centre with my mod2 pass and the next time I got on a bike was a Susie DR650 in Australia on the 17 August. 5,000 kilometers (2,000kms on bitumen, 2,300 on dirt and 700 on sand), 12 days camping under the stars, frost at night 35 degrees in the day, 1100 sand dunes and a number of "offs" later; I had my most extreme bike lesson yet! Thanks for your patience and cool headed training before I went. I'll gladly bore you senseless with the photos some-time. I even remembered to cancel my indicators nearly every time! ..."
"... hi Richard,i just wanted to say thank you to Tom for being so professional, and yet really friendly on my cbt... he managed to put us all at our ease, and made the day enjoyable and a pleasure to learn in...

many thanks ..."
"... Without doubt the best bike instructor in the area. Patient, relaxed, calm and really knows his stuff. Got me, a non rider (car driver) through CBT and both bike tests passed in less than a fortnight from booking. Learner bikes have recently been replaced and are lovely to ride. Many many thanks Richard! ..."
"... Dear Richard,Thank you so much (and your team) for helping Simon to achieve his CBT pass. He has had a difficult climb in life and is now getting the chance to expand and grow despite his difficulties. He was a very proud, if worn out, bloke at the end of the day and it has been a brilliant experience for him. We appreciate your professional training and friendly approach.Thank you againRegards ..."

"... Thank you for a wonderful day ..."
"... I found your instruction to be very imformative as well as fun. You gave me all the confidence I needed to get my CBT again. I went out last night on my new Tweet for a big ride taking in Sandbanks ferry, Studland, Corfe Castle, Wareham, St Peter's Finger at Lytchett Minster and home again to Poole which only took a short while. I hope to be in touch shortly in order to progress my training with yourself and Richard.Thank you once again. ..."
"... Just some feedback from my CBT on Saturday. Tom (I think- not great with names) was excellent. I have done the CBT before and this one was more informative and fun. I came away with confidence as to how to ride, and that is completely down to the teacher.

many thanks for an excellent day- I will see you in due course for my A1 ..."
"... Hi Richard,Would just like to say thanks for all the help and for getting me to pass my mods 1 & 2 first time!! Cheers ..."
"... Hi, just would like to say thanks to Tom for getting me through my CBT at the weekend...riding a motorbike is something I never thought I’d ever do, so passing it was a huge achievement for me.
Tom was the ideal instructor, very patient, knowledgeable, easily explained what I needed to do, and didn’t make me feel under par when I didn’t quite get things makes a big difference to someone’s confidence how things are put, and Tom certainly made me feel at ease, as much as I could have been on what seemed to be the hottest day on history making me feel hot and flustered enough. Lol
Thanks very much for a good day, and I certainly know where to come when I feel confident enough to go for my full bike licence, although I have a way to go before that, just lots of practice on my own bike!
Thanks again.... ..."
"... Hi Richard

Just thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know what a fantastic instrutor Tom is! He maintains his calmness, explain things clearly and makes you think about what you're doing without flustering you. He really is a super trainer! We both really enjoyed our day and Alice has already ridden over to her friends on her moped!!

Thanks so much to both you and Tom and I look forward to meeting you again when I do my full licence!

Best wishes ..."

"... Richard, today is the 1st aniversary of passing my test. Your professionalism and superb tuition has served me well and thanks to you I've had 12 months of safe and enjoyable riding. To anyone considering taking lessons, quite simply, you will not find a better instructor. Well done mate, keep up the good work! ..."
"... I did my CBT with Richard a while ago, and I have to say, it was made an enjoyable experience with good tuition, I was very nervous when I first sat on the bike, but by the end of the training I was filled with confidence. I am now riding a Honda CBR 125 and hoping to book my full test with Richard soon :) ..."
"... Richard is a brilliant instructor and a lovely guy! He kept me at ease throughout all my training and gave me the confidence to succeed!
I passed Mod 1 and 2 first time,and would not hesitate in recommending Richard to anyone who wishes to learn to ride.I never dreamt that I would be riding a 650cc at such a young age, and couldn't have done it without Richard's calm tuition and sense of humour.
Thank you and I hope to see you at bike night or out on the road in the not too distant future :-D ..."
"... What a legend of an instructor, mod 1 passed first time, mod 2 passed first time despite having to go from poole to Lee on Solent, i even got a cup of coffee out of it! 100% A* instructor top class and the next x factor winner
Thanks again Richard and anyone wandering about him book up now and you won't regret it i can promise you ..."
"... If you are fairly close to the Wimborne/Poole area and are still undecided on where to recieve motorcycle tuition then do not hesitate to give these guys a buzz. My friend organised our CBT's and I was really pleasantly suprised to find that our Instructor Richard was patient, clear and funny to boot. He made the whole learning experience simple and any worries I had, had quickly disappeared. I really enjoyed the day. We even were finished earlier than I had anticipated. However, it was reassuring to know that there was further time if we needed it. Unlike my friend, I had not really ridden before and and I recieved an extra fifteen minutes on the bike to ensure I could cancel my indicators immediately after making a turn. Quite rightly, I was not going to be given a certificate until deemed safe!Richard, you will be pleased to know that I'm pretty quick to cancel my indicators on my mtx 125 now and look forward to booking a full course with you sometime in the not to distant future.Thanks again ..."
"... Just wanted to say thank you for getting me through my tests. Also thanks for being flexible when I had to go to Lee on Solent as well as, always making sure I had my favourite yellow bike. You only have good students if you have a good Teacher. Note to all: Listen to Richard's instructions, you will pass if you do.Thanks again Sifu Richard, I'm now enjoying my Z750. See you on the roads.Cheers ..."
"... Hi Richard

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for yesterday.

The training was top class and I can't believe that I actually rode a motorbike on the Wessex Way!

I promise I will do my best to cancel my indicators and stop before the white lines!

Hopefully will be in touch springtime next year to commence battle on the next stages.

Until then all the best ..."
"... Thanks to Richard I now own and ride a beautiful motorbike. Im so grateful to Richard for all his patience through out my motorbike training. He always made me feel comfortable and relaxed and really helped me come over any fears that I had - including turning right!I would thouroughly recommend rider training with Richard to everyone. ..."
