"... Can't recommend these guys strongly enough! Excellent customer service and honesty - I initially tried on a geared bike and as it didn't work out Richard said I could come back and try again on an auto, no problem. As soon as lockdown was eased I was contacted to do this. Greg is a super patient instructor and really helped ease my nerves with his humour. My second try was super easy sailing and made very enjoyable by Pete and Greg. Before doing a CBT I was worried I'd be the only woman in a stereotypically manly environment but was never once made to feel uncomfortable. You can tell these guys love their job and it shows. Thanks so much from one very happy customer!!! ..."

"... I was really nervous about doing my CBT, but my instructors were fantastic and put me totally at ease straight away. They were really patient and encouraging, and I was feeling 100x more confident by the end of the day. Already looking forward to doing my full license as soon as possible - thank you so much guys! ..."
Benjamin
"... Thank you to everyone at lets ride, passed first time with zero rider faults.
Excellent training from the start to end, i have done training before elsewhere and it was brief and quick, but Lets Ride actually spend proper time with you, and they don't continue to the next skill/module till you have got it right, they don't rush you with anything. Excellent bikes to train on too!!!! Kawasaki Z650's.
Richard, Pete and Nick THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU TAUGHT ME!!! Especially your patience with me leaving my indicators on
Highly highly recommend Lets Ride to everyone who is wanting their license, the instructors are what makes the training school! ..."
Nathan
"... Hi Richard, Just emailed you to say thank you. Honestly, the whole experience was so much fun and so professional and informative. To think 5 days ago I could barely ride and hadn't really been on the road and now I feel so comfortable on the road and have passed both modules with only 1 minor! Credit to you and your team. Also Pete and Nick have been amazing. From start to finish. Attentive, full of knowledge yet fun with a sense of humour too. Didn't feel like a chore.

I said to Pete and Nick, once it warms up and I get a bike probably around March time I will swing by and see you guys :)

Thanks again mate. ..."
Ty
"... At the end of the day one instructor asked the other "...so what weather conditions does constitute a cancellation?!" It was that bad outside BUT that didn't stop us. The dedication and positive attitude of my main instructor Kevin kept us focused and those struggling to progress with the group were put at ease by his gentle but firm approach. Before I even turned the engine on Kevin knew the bad habits I would need to correct (IT guys always watched dials) which gave me confidence in his knowledge and experience of riding and teaching to ride a motorcycle.

Out on the road we had Pete giving us marching orders, he was clear and assertive making sure we were safe at all times. During the brief, his discussion and instruction gave us that last push of confidence. Returning to the motorcycle centre with heads held high!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to both instructors and I'll see you soon when I look to book DAS. ..."

"... Would like to say a HUGE thank you to Let's Ride for the training and knowledge given to get me through my DAS. I passed 1st time after a few days training from Pete, he goes above and beyond and really boosted my confidence and was patient and supportive.

Daniel
"... My husband and I have always been keen to learn to ride, after many years of attending the Great Dorset Steam Fair and seeing all the bikes and riders there we have wanted to ride ourselves. We began learning with Kevin who is extremely patient and supportive. We finally sat our CBT today 06/09/20 and were so pleased to be walking away with our Certificates. Both Kevin and Greg helped us through our journey and put us at ease. We both felt very comfortable and confident and we certainly couldn't have done it without the help from Let's Ride. Highly recommended and will continue to use them so as to advance to full licence ..."

"... Let's ride motorcycle training is an absalutley amazing training school.The instructors here are Incredibly friendly ,welcoming and professional. Whether you are a first time nervous rider or an advanced rider they have the skills and patience to train you to top standard to ensure you pass. I have done my cbt and das full motorcycle test with them and passed both modules with flying colors due to my instructors Richard and Petea great skills and professional way of training. I would and will recommend let's ride to anybody thinking about doing a cbt or the bigger bike tests without hesitation. ..."
John
"... I completed my CBT on 29/08/20 with Kevin as my instructor. He was fantastic - really calm and patient, and willing to give as much time and tuition as I needed to ensure I felt as confident as possible. During the ride on the roads, he constantly gave advice on riding safely and awareness of risks and potential dangers along the route, as well as commenting and advising on my riding technique. I am so pleased I booked my CBT with Let's Ride Wimborne (recommended by my son who did his 'A2' and 'A' training with them), and would recommend them to anyone considering learning to ride a motorbike. Thank you to Kevin for all of your support that day, I really appreciated it! ..."
Sally
"... Hello Team,

Just wanted to share an extra thank you for today. Not only did you provide me with the information and instruction I needed it was done in a way which made me feel at ease and made the experience very fun. This is not to say that the important points were made light of. A great balance. I also appreciate the manner with which you dealt with the young lady who didn't quite have the sufficient skills to go ahead with the course. I thought you managed this in a very sensitive way to her, and to those who were due to ride with her. It gave me confidence that you were able to say no to someone, but also that you allowed it to be her choice.

Thanks.

Regards, ..."
Paul
"... I completed my CBT course today. We had a very enjoyable day. Nick was very helpful and friendly. We both felt very comfortable and safe out on the road with Nicks help. Would highly recommend. Thank you :) ..."
Lauren
"... I passed first time with Lets ride and cannot recommend the team enough I had my test cancelled at the beginning of lockdown and Richard kept me informed throughout and within 2 weeks of tests starting again I had passed. A massive thank you aswell to Pete and Nick for my training which was first class! Would recommend you guys to anyone and I wish you the very best of luck in the future!!! ..."
Lee
"... got my CBT today - thanks to Greg and Nick.
i was very nervous before going as never ridden a geared bike before.
The videos that you have to watch (due to current restrictions) helped enormously.
Both Greg and Nick were superb. they both made me feel relaxed and comfortable.
can't praise them enough.
look forward to seeing them both when i book my full license. ..."
Teresa
"... Started my journey back in January for a direct access course and started with the cbt, I was wobbly and nervous after being off of a bike for so long, but within a month I was a comfortable and confident rider on a 600cc bike, the combined efforts of Richard, nick and Pete can't be sung high enough, kept in contact throughout lockdown and made every effort to make days work around my work schedule.

A very friendly bunch and a great laugh, with a great wealth of knowledge and experience. Can't recommend anyone else high enough.

Will definitely be returning in two years for my unrestricted license.

Thanks guys. ..."
Owen
"... Hi Richard, just wanted to say Pete was great today thank you.
You guys have such a different approach to my experience with my previous school, thank you all.
I would also like to say well done on the videos. I found them clear and informative. If only I'd had them before my very first lesson. I'm sure it would have helped me deal with my nerves better. The clear explanation in lay terms of what each part of the bike does, the explanation of how the bike behaves under breaking really helped as a novice to motor biking. The instruction on the road via the video, even for a car driver, meant I had a clear understanding on my CBT day. Then did not feel as mentally strained during the day. It meant the physical riding which, for an older learner can in itself be tiring, had my concentration, I was not overloaded with too much new information on one day.
Thanks and well done. ..."
