"... 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! ..."
"... Thanks for the great lessons, constant calm instruction and getting me through the test first time. Just picked up my first bike last weekend and enjoying it immensely. ..."
"... Thanks for the quality trainingA real pleasure to train for the DAS with Rich and then pass. He has a fantasic approach that puts you at ease immediately - it allows you to get on with the main task of learning how to ride the bike safely. The training was thorough and comprehensive whilst at the same time great fun! I would not hesitate in recommending him for any bike based training.Thanks Rich for a job well done. ..."
"... well done to richard!
If you're wondering who to choose to help you through your cbt then this is the place! The pre cbt really made me feel more confident and richards calm talking in my ear through the microphone helped me get over my fear of roundabouts! Very patient and all very enjoyable :) good luck!! ..."
"... I should have posted this ages ago ...
Richard is awesome. There, I said it. Thanks to him it only took me 2 days to go from a shakey CBT holder to a confident Fully Licenced rider. If only it was as quick as that for me to save up the hard cash for a bigger bike!!! Nothing worse than being legal and still having to ride a 125 due to cashflow lol. Roll on that 1986 Honda VT500 Shadow I've got my eye on...Seriously though. Very patient and very understanding teacher, highly recommended. m/ ..."
"... Excellent Service from Richard, did a pre-cbt as I could not grasp the concept of changing gear! Got me changing quickly, then some 1 to 1 and a CBT and passed, much better service than the local companies in gosport.Would deffinately recomend to anyone who wants to take the leap to Bikes :) ..."
"... Hi Richard and Ed,
I took my CBT and DSA almost exactly 1 year ago. Since then I have covered over 18,000 miles on my Triumph Sprint ST 955i. The lessons Ed gave me in safe riding have kept me well over a heck of a lot of virgin year miles. Top notch guys. I think I might do my advanced test soon. Thanks for making riding fun. ..."
"... A big thank you
Hi Richard just to say a big thank you for a fantastic three days training and test. Still looking for a bike, enjoy your bike tour of Europe.Best wishes ..."
"... Thanks
Just passed my test with ed today at Poole test center. Would like to let you know that the training he gave was exceptional and he really put me at ease on the 500cc bike. He never made me feel stupid when I made (numerous) errors and I couldn't have done it without him. All the best. ..."
"... I have had more fun in the past 12mnts on a 125 with those darn "L" plates than i thought possible... and this is due to the instruction recieved from Richard and Co.(Paul i think.. the scottish preacher) who helped me pass my CBT in tropical downpour conditions APril 06... still can't ride in the dry... not used to it!!
having moved away from the southcoast i haven't been able to add myself to the list of riders who have passed under Richards guidance but i haven't ruled out coming back... Even changing offices every 6 months can't throw me of the scent.....
Have absolutely no problem in recommending Richard to anyone who wants to learn how to ride. ..."
"... indicators!!! Just wanted to thankyou Richard for your patience and great tuition when doing my standard bike training last month, still cant belive i passed first time, it was the scariest day of my life!!! i would recomend 'lets ride' to anyone wanting to learn, you have so much patience its not true and i learnt some invaluble lessons. cheers. ..."
"... Great CBT Hi Richard,Thank you for instructing me on my recent CBT, i just wanted to say thanks for being so patient with all those problems with that useless habana (currently being fixed, AGAIN) and if i need any other motorbike tests i will be sure to use lets ride again, with a better bike :)Thanks Again ..."
"... Can't believe I finally made it! Im officially a rufty tufty biker! Training was fantastic, although Im sure Rich was silently screaming to himself at times. Just the right combination of encouragement when you get it right, and head shaking when you dont... Im now using my "trophy" cracked indicator as a paperslip holder at work! Cant recommend this guy enough! Cheers mate x ..."
