"... 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. ..."
"... How Richard converted a 50 year old nervous wreck provisional driving licence holder into a passed his CBT certificate holder God only knows! Patience must be his middle name! My new middle name is "TURN!!"

I can't thank you enough Richard for giving me confidence and changing my life.

Cheers mate ..."
"... I chose Lets Ride to do my DAS training because of their no-nonsense website,(no ridiculous claims about 98% pass rates),(although i now think they probably have that much success!)and boy am i glad i did! I passed both modules at my first attempt with only 3 minors in total, and enjoyed every minute of it!(and it didn't cost me a fortune)Thanks again Richard. ..."

"... Thanks very much for getting me through my CBT. Without your calm cheery instruction there is no way that I would have got through.Thanks again. ..."
"... Hi Richard,
What a day yesterday,the weather was horrific,however I had a great time.After an awful experience with another instructor from a cowboy riding school, who shall remain anon,I really didn't think I would pass the CBT. I found you very professional and patient throughout,a hint of good humour here and there mixed with consistant praise towards your pupils.I would definatly say you found your vocation in life, what a great instructor, I would definitely recommend you to friends and family.Look forward to booking my Direct Access with you in the not too distant future. ..."
"... Hi Richard,Just a quick note to say thank you for playing your part in me getting my full bike license. All lessons were very professional and enjoyable,Many thanks ..."
"... I successfully completed my CBT and my Direct access with Lets Ride. I found Richards instruction to be patient, clear and relevant, mixed with humor and easily understood explanations I was made to feel relaxed and confident throughout. The bikes were well maintained and nice to ride adding to the experience. Thanks to Richards advice and tips I was able to pass my Big bike Mod 1 test with a clean sheet and Passing the Mod 2 road test was a breeze.

I recommend Lets Ride not only as a great school with which to obtain your licence but also to pick up valuable tips on riding safely and confidently.

Thanks again Richard ..."
"... Hey there, Just completed my CBT yesterday. What an awesome experience and what a fantastic instructor! Calm, patient and immensely efficient. I'd recommend anyone to do their CBT with Rich he's an A* instructor! Time to practise my U-turns!Thanks alot! ..."
"... Thanks Richard for some great instruction and getting me through both modules. You taught me to ride safely and also instilled a lot of confidence. Whenever I come up to a junction I can still here your voice in my head which is disturbing but quite useful. It was a lot of fun as well and hopefully I'll bump into you on my new bike, not literally though! ..."
