"... 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 ..."
"... I just wanted to say how brilliant Phil was on Sunday, it's my second CBT and the reason it was my second CBT is because last time at another school was rubbish, miles apart to the experience that Phil provided. Finally I am confident. Thanks Phil, you were amazing. Keep safe on the road! ..."
"... Richard and Team,
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the Team at Let's Ride and more especially Chris for his professionalism and guidance on the day of my test. (which I passed with 0 faults)Your training Bikes are of a very high quality and the whole service provided throughout was second to none, with a friendly atmosphere to put us 'potential' riders at our ease. I wish you every success for the future and don't stop being yourselves Guys. ..."
"... Richard,

Sorry this has taken soo long. I just wanted to say thank you very much to you and your team, and I hope you enjoyed you night out!

I was 110% sure I had failed my test and spent half of it trying to work out what dates I could book a re-test! obviously I was harder on myself than Ian. ONE minor!

Really enjoyed my course with you and will recommend you to others. ..."
"... Ok Richard just a quick text to thank you Chris and Mark for all your patience with me still can't believe it can't wait to get a bike now cheers again and I'll be highly recommending you all ..."
"... Hi Richard

Just want to say thank you to you, Mark and Chris for the training for my Module 1 and 2. After the previous experience I had I cannot explain my gratitude to you all for your patience and teaching skills. It was a great experience and thank you for restoring my faith in the motorcycle world.

Many Thanks again.

Kind Regards ..."
"... Thank you so much for helping me past my A2 first time!

By far the worst weather I've seen, my instructor Chris helped me to relax and forget about the rain.

Great people to get along with, good luck to those of you taking your tests!

Thanks again guys :) ..."
"... Many Thanks for getting me through my A2 course these past 6 days..
A week ago I'd never sat on a Geared bike and a week later I've got my licence. All of the instructors have all got so much time to give and really get you up to standard without you even realizing it. A really enjoyable week and no doubt I'll see you again in another few years when I can do the A licence. Highly recommended if you want to ride!
Thanks again! ..."
"... Hi Richard,

Just wanted to pass on all my thanks to yourself, Mark, Chris and Phil for all the training. I'm well chuffed with getting through first time, seems bizarre now it's all done and dusted.

I left you a fiver to cover the lunch last weekend, seems only right. I'll give you a heads up and pop by once I get the GSA so you can have a gander.

Keep up the great training, really impressed with all your instructors attitudes and a real pleasure to pay for!

Cheers ..."
"... Richard,
Love it when a plan comes together!
Over the moon. My sincere thanks to yourself, Chris and Mark, please pass on my gratitude to the two guys too.
Picked up my Tracer this afternoon and used up a full tank before the rain came down this evening.
Not only would I recommend the quality of instruction from Let's Ride but I enjoyed the company and the banter immensely, a great bunch.
I'll see you out there as my proficiency improves ! Once again many thanks to you and the guys.
Best regards, ..."
"... Hi Richard,

Thanks to you and Philip, Chris and Mark for helping me through both modules of my bike test which I passed today. The help you and your team gave me was well planned and structured in a way that was both enjoyable and easy for a complete novice like me to be test ready and pass. Anybody who is contemplating motorbike training with Let's Ride should definitely give these guys a try.

Regards ..."
"... Hi Richard,

I just wanted to write a note to say thanks for getting me through both my Mod 1 and Mod 2 at the first attempt over the last couple of weeks.

I really enjoyed the training days. Mark, Chris and yourself had different training styles and I was able to pick up useful tips from you all which I think I was able to put into good use on the test days.

Please pass on my thanks to Mark and Chris.

Many thanks!


Ps - I went home via Three Cross motorcycles and test rode a Street Triple that afternoon, no point in hanging about! Mod 2 pass and an hour on a 675 triple - best bike day so far! ..."
"... What a brilliant learning experience! Thank you to Rich and his team for making the training so enjoyable, both myself and Karen really enjoyed the fun banter and the way we were trained. The full access course enabled us to gain our full licences with lots of on road experience. Keep up the good work and see you when we have our bikes sorted. ..."

"... I hadn't been on a bike for many years when I decided to do the CBT day as a try-out. I enjoyed that course so thought I'd go ahead with the theory test and then the conversion day and on to Mod 1 & 2. All went well and it was only a few weeks from the start to passing the Mod 2 thanks to the thorough preparation at each stage and a cancellation. All the courses were enjoyable and the on-road training was great. I've had my bike for a few weeks now and I'm enjoying it thanks to the training - I can still hear Chris's voice in my ear when I'm riding (apart from that) thanks to all at Let's Ride! ..."
"... Well gents what can I say? Upgrading from A2 to my full licence I was only ever going to use one training school!
Many thanks to Richard for his excellent mod 1 training which got me straight through with one (just!) minor after his patience with me and my u-turns!
And then to Wolfie aka Mark for helping me brush up to examination standard for the mod 2 with no minors!
A great team of gents and just couldn't reccomend them enough if you're thinking of taking your motorbike test at any level!:)
Been loving the sunshine on the ninja and long may it continue!
Many thanks again guys, ..."
"... First I want to say thankyou to everyone at Lets Ride for making my Direct Access Course fun and informative. All the guys were great to train with. Special mention for Richard whos professionalism and enthusiasm is impressive, and also to Chris for making me laugh on many occasions. I am now passed and loving riding my bike. I would highly recommend Lets Ride.

Cheers Guys ..."
"... I can't thank everyone at the school enough for helping me pass both Mod 1 & 2 first time! Richard is a really great friendly guy that was really easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable before I chose Let's Ride! as the school to train with.

I had Chris, another instructor for three out of my four days training and he was incredible! We went though so many things, and he made everything really clear and gave me a lot of great little tips on how to make things easier! He's a great bloke with a very relaxed teaching style making you feel super comfortable and like you're having fun with your mates! Top bloke!

I also had a day with Mark who was fantastic and made everything really simple for me before my test! We had a great conversation about practical riding and he presented riding a bike for what it is for life not just everything you should do up until your test!

Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Let's Ride to anyone simple because from the start to the end I've had an incredible experience with these guys, they've been very friendly, incredibly knowledgable, never rushed me or anyone and looking back even though I was very nervous before both of my tests I knew I was ready to pass! ..."
