"... 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! ..."
"... Best bike school in Dorset Very professional and understanding of individual needs An amazing group of gentlemen. Xx ..."
"... Richard,

I thought I should at least put a few lines to 'paper' to say a huge thanks to the team. If it was "holy crap" at me passing mod 1, I can only presume you're picking yourself off the floor at me passing mod 2!

Please pass on thanks to Chris and Mark (apologies if any names wrong but they both called me everything and anything!).

Seriously chuffed to bits.

I'm just in the huff today as I collected my new steed yesterday and I'm working all day. I keep seeing glimpses out the window of her trying to beacon me away. Roll on tomorrow's day off!

Any man, woman, or child will get my recommendations to go to Let's-Ride.

If you see me on the road... jump clear :-) ..."
"... Hi Richard,

I just wanted to say thanks for the course. It was good fun, and all of the instructors I had were really good. I'll definitely recommend you in the future.

Cheers ..."
"... Hi Richard,

I would just like to thank you again for the fantastic few days I've just had with "Let's Ride". It's hard to believe that only a week ago I'd just got my CBT and passed my theory test and now I have my full bike license! Not only were the instructors brilliant, but also the other trainees and I wish Gareth, Mark and Tim the best of luck with their tests!

Thanks for a fun and intense week, I'll make sure I don't rely on the ABS for emergency stops (as my bike doesn't have ABS!) and calm down the "franticness"! ..."
"... Hi Richard - I passed my mod 2 test last week, I want to say thanks to Chris not just for getting me through the test but giving me the training awareness I will continue to use throughout my days as a motorcyclist. ..."
"... Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking... It is only right that I give a glowing review of Richard and his team at Lets Ride. Due to my working commitments, I have actually completed 2 cbt's, and have only just now completed my Direct Access, passing both modules successfully at the first attempt! In my module 1 training with Richard, there was a mix of less and more experienced riders, and the support was excellent showing encouragement to all riders. Bad habits were polished out smoothly and the instruction was second to none. For module 2, we had a very patient man in Mark (wolfie) who again polished away any lasting bad habits ready for the road ride.

I literally cannot thank you guys or show my appreciation enough to Richard, Mark and the team and would recommend this training school to anyone looking to learn to ride safely. On a side note, the pricing for the courses are also some of the most competitive around in the dorset area, and I thoroughly encourage anyone considering getting into biking to use THIS team.

"... Hi Richard,

Sorry I didn't do this sooner but I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and the rest of the guys that helped me get through my test and made it so enjoyable. Obviously living up in London it's tricky for me to pop along in person but I've attached a pic of me posing on my new pride and joy anyway. I've had my Street Triple for about a month now and she's an absolute dream.

Thanks again ..."
"... Hi Richard and all at lets ride,

Just a quick email of my appreciation to you all for getting me through my CBT, Module 1 and 2. From the moment I walked in you were all super supportive and more than willing to share your knowledge and quite honestly would never have passed had your guys not done sterling job.

If I come across others looking to take their Bike Training, which is more than likely, have no doubts that I will be giving you guys a glowing reference =)

Special mention to Phil who took my CBT Training, Richard who did my Mod 1 Training and Chris who dragged me through both Mods and got me over that pass line.

Thank you so much guys and all the very best. ..."
"... Hi Richard,

many thanks again to you and the guys for all your help in getting me through my test. Took the bandit out tonight along the coast road- awesome!

hope to see you again soon, give us a shout if you're down this way.

cheers ..."
"... Thanks both Gary and Richard. Very professional,punctual and Knowledgeable. I highly recommend them. ..."
"... Thanks to Gary, Richard and the rest of the team for putting up with me while I undertook my training and test. I passed my Module two first time thanks to this lot. Money well spent! ..."
"... What an awesome adventure and three awesome guys. Before 2 weeks ago I'd never ridden a geared motorcycle and was riding my scooter to work dreaming of a Yamaha MT07, today I passed my Mod 2 test. I can't thank these guys enough I loved every moment of the training and can't believe how much they taught me whilst being so patient and dedicated. Would recommend to anyone looking to get into biking. Once again many thanks. ..."
"... From CBT through to Mod2 in 4 weeks!! what can i say, simply that Lets Ride are outstanding, I cant sing their praises highly enough, the standard of training is incredible & i felt that i have learnt so much in such a short time, they made the whole process a fantastic experience, Richard, Gary, Mark & all of the Lets Ride team i just want to say thank you , you have made a long term dream a reality, if any one is thinking of learning to Ride i recommend whole heartedly that you train with Lets Ride, these guys are the best.

"... Let's Ride offer superb instruction. My girlfriend and I did my CBT with Gary last Spring, and knew that when I did my DAS it would be with them. My girlfriend was full of praise for Gary, who was an excellent teacher. For the big bikes, I was taught by both Gary and Richard, both of whom communicate their knowledge and enthusiasm very effectively. More than this though, they excel at creating a really good environment in which to learn: for me, beginning motorcycling involved a certain amount of nervousness and a lack of confidence. However, they did their utmost to support, reassure and relax, which meant I felt safe and at ease. They offered a lot of time, space and patience, so I felt unhurried and able to make mistakes. They're really nice guys who offer a lot of empathy to the beginner. I passed both modules first time just before Christmas, which bowled me over. I can't recommend them highly enough. ..."
"... I cannot reccommend this school highly enough. Having originally failed my DAS mod 2 (at a school based at Mallory Park) I decided to try a completely different school (Let's ride). I was firstly impressed by the quality of their bikes which were a world away from the bikes at the previous school and secondly my instructor Gary could not have been more welcoming. Just from riding with him for 30 mins made me realise how ill prepared I had been for my initial test. My confidence level from riding with Gary defintely was a factor in helping me pass as well as his expert guidance. It is also worth noting that their prices are very competitive without cutting corners.
I will defiintely be back to ride with Let's ride even after passing my test as being a newbie to biking I want to gain more experience riding with professionals.
In summary if you're looking for a fun/ friendly place to learn with expert tuition then Let's ride is definitely somewhere I would not hesitate to reccommend.
It was a little out of the way for me being based in London but I'm glad I made the journey down to dorset.

Kind regards ..."
