"... Hi Richard

Just wanted to say thanks for my bike training and the effort the boys and particularly you put into helping me through my test. I thought it was very good of you to ride all the way to lea on the Solent just for me to do a 10 min mod 1! So thanks and I was very impressed with how you organise the whole process mate. ..."
"... Richard,

Just a note from Gareth and I who completed the CBT on Sunday.

Arrangements for the day were smooth with good information provided in preparation and calls always responded to. I picked Let’s Ride based on their good reputation and wasn’t disappointed.

Please would you pass on our thanks to Greg. He is enthusiastic and fun, but also thorough in ensuring we were safe and well controlled. Prior to the day we both had next to no bike experience, but on completion were confidently and safely out riding the roads around Wimborne on geared bikes.

We’re looking forward to returning for our ‘bigger bike’ tests once Greg has qualified for Direct Access! ..."

"... Massive thanks to Richard and his team, Chris (CBT), Richard himself (Mod 1/2) and Mark (Mod 2) for getting me through the DAS course and a first-time pass after not having been on a bike for 35 yrs. I would recommend Let's Ride to anyone - great job. ..."
"... My total previous motorbike riding experience was 1/2 a day on a Greek Island 20+ years ago. I had always wanted to take my motorbike test so I bit the bullet and booked my Direct Access course with Let's Ride. Even though it wasn't the closest school, I chose Lets Ride due to the flexibility. I didn't have to take a full week off work. Richard was excellent at building an individual itinerary to suit me. Over a period of 6 weeks, I completed my CBT, experience days, conversion from a 125 to a 600 and then my Module 1 and Module 2 training. I passed my Mod 1 and 2 first time. This was due to the fantastic instruction received from both Chris and Richard. Thanks Let's Ride, I will be highly recommending you to any friends and family who want to do the course. ..."
"... Hi Richard

Just wanted to send my personal thanks first of all for rearranging my CBT.

Second of all a huge thanks to Greg who was amazing. Patient, friendly and really thorough in his training.

Because of the experience I had with Greg I will definitely return for my bigger test.

I will ensure I write a review as soon as

Thanks very much again ..."
"... Hi Richard,

Just wanted to say thank you for my CBT with Greg on Saturday. Please could you pass on my thanks to him.

He was very patient and made the training fun whilst making sure we understood how to stay in control and as safe as we can.

It was a tiring day but despite the ferocious wind we escaped any deluges so that helped. It was very rewarding when I received my certificate. I do hope that the other girls Jo and Simone also obtained their certificates, they had a more difficult task than me in learning on geared bikes.

I look forward to using my bike now and getting more experience and with the things I learned from Greg, staying as safe as possible when on the road with other drivers around.

Thanks again
Best Regards ..."
"... Hi Rich

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks to yourself and your team for the great experience completing my direct access license. The training given by Chris was first class and lead to me having a first time pass for MOD 1 and 2. He made the training very enjoyable and is a credit to your team. Once again many thanks. ..."
"... Hi Richard
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks for the CBT course on Friday, great day, great instructor, great kit, I would definitely recommend Lets Ride.

"... To Richard / Chris & Mark.
Many, many thanks to you all for your patience and time during my instruction / testing days.
Having had a bad experience with another school, it was pleasing to have such dedicated and enthusiastic
instructors who not only taught you how to ride, but ride safely.
Mark...hope all goes well for you and cheers buddy.
They are a credit to you and your school.
Thanks again Richard. Will have no hesitation in recommending Lets Ride to anyone.
Regards ..."
"... I would like to thank Richard for his dedication to his School and his pupils.
Big thanks to Chris for my progression to pass Mod 1, and big thanks to Mark for all of his knowledge in helping me pass Mod 2 first time. I had very limited experience riding but with the help of these guys it was FUN unlike my previous riding school where the instructors egos were bigger than their bikes, seriously my experience was incredible.

A massive thank you from me,for giving me such high standards in road craft to live up to.

Regards, ..."
"... Hello Richard,

I would like to thank you for your riding course, I had a great result on my module 2 test today... I PASSED!!

I will be recommending you if I hear someone would like to take their full motorbike lisence.
Could you also thank chris and mark for me.
I found their training very helpful and encouraging.

Thank you again! ..."
"... Hi Richard,

I'm writing to you to say big thank you to you and your team for making my DAS a pleasure to do. First of all thank you to Chris for making CBT an easy and relaxed day and making sure that I'm happy with controlling the bike and understand basics.
Big thank you to you for making conversion to 600cc so simple and enjoyable and helping me sail through Module 1. It was easier than I thought :)
Last but not least thank you to Mark for helping me get through Module 2. He was very patient and his instructions were very clear which helped me with Mod2.
It was very good experience and I will recommend your school to anyone who will want to get his motorcycle licence!!!

Kind regards, ..."
"... Hi Richard, a big thank you for getting me through my test. I passed my module one with no rider faults thanks to your excellent tuition and also a big thank you to Chris for taking me on day one of my module two with a relaxed approach making it as easy and as comfortable for me as possible. On day two of my module two I had Mark the drill sergeant who again was incredibly helpful and pushed me hard in the mornings training to be as good as I can be. Compared with the mornings training, my nerves fell considerably due to Mark's support, which made taking the test that much easier, and i passed with no rider faults.

Many thanks to Richard,Chris and Mark, A Great Team,

Best Wishes, ..."
"... Just to say a big thank you to Phil for all his help getting me through my CBT & a days training. I'd never ridden a bike before & was really nervous, he's given me the confidence to get myself a little bike, practise lots & hopefully pass my test with 'Let's Ride' in the near future! Thanks again for all your help & patience. ..."
"... Hi Richard,

Well just over a week has gone by since passing module 2 giving me licence to join the ‘category A’ motorcycle brigade. May I say you guys take on a huge responsibility in training candidates to ride a motorcycle safely on Britain’s overcrowded roads and I have enormous respect for you.

For me embarking on this journey was from the outset scary – I think it’s true to say the older you get the more considered and risk averse you become. There were times when I questioned what the dickens I was doing riding a 600cc motorcycle when I wouldn’t go on some of the more frightening fairground rides. The difference is of course you are in control of the machinery so getting my confidence on the bike was going to be key.

Chris is the man to build that assurance and I appreciated the way in which he handled me during my first few days training. He demonstrated how to control the motorcycle and through his training techniques gave me the necessary skills and confidence to pass module 1. Chris is a real character and am pleased we managed to have a laugh along the way.

On the other hand Mark is a no nonsense trainer and a great bloke to boot. To achieve the standards required for Module 2 he is just the ticket relentlessly drilling you in order to raise your game - in my case it was certainly needed.

The whole motorcycle adventure was a means to end for me as I wanted another form of motorised transport to use when motor homing on the continent. I collected my 2014 Suzuki DL650 V - Strom yesterday and am now looking for a suitable trailer to tow it on behind my Motorhome. My wife Lin is currently undergoing hypnotherapy (lol) to ready herself for riding pillion but I’ll leave that for good few months yet until I feel proficient and safe on the Bike - I may ask you for advice on further training soon.

You’ve got a good team and setup and I would have no hesitation in recommending your training school.

Meanwhile I wish you well for the future and hope you and your wife enjoyed the bubbly as a small token of my appreciation.

Kind regards ..."
