Thank you for your email.
I can’t tell you how chuffed I am that I successfully completed the CBT. I can’t believe it that when I came to do my New Rider 1 hour taster on the 24th August I really hadn’t even sat on a bike before, and now I’ve got my CBT!! As I said to Dave on Sunday afternoon the first hour on the road in the afternoon was a bit daunting, but I really settled down by the second hour, and felt so at home on the bike!
It was really nice for Dave to say that he saw no reason why I couldn’t progress to do my full licence. It is something that I will definitely be doing. I didn’t realise that you were able to offer 0% finance on that. That will certainly help!!
For now, the sensible part of me is saying get some experience at riding, and in different conditions, before I do my full test. I have today bought myself a bike! a Yamaha YBR125 Custom. It’s being delivered in a week or so. I’ll send a photo once I’ve got it! Now that I’ve got my CBT I just want to get out riding!
Rest assured that I will be doing my full licence before long, and obviously I will be doing the training with you guys. I really can’t thank you all enough. Dave was fantastic on Sunday. Patient, clear, understanding, encouraging, helpful…….I could go on. Also, the general organisation of the whole company – from your user-friendly website, to the text message reminders, and all-round helpful attitude makes me feel (and I’m sure others like me) a very special customer/student.
All I need to do now is save some money for the full licence course/training, (although the 0% might be handy there), and then take some time off work. Before then, however, I need to get my theory test out of the way. Is that something that I could/should/would do myself, or would I need to organise that via yourselves? If I get that out of the way in the next couple of months do you have fairly good availability for the full licence course? (How long does the theory test last for once (assuming) I’ve passed it?).
Anyway, thanks again Steve, for making everything so painless. The only thing I’m left asking myself, is why I haven’t done all of this earlier!!!!
I hope it won’t be too long before I’m booking lessons for the full licence 🙂
