'It was very helpful to have my bad habits pointed out in a kindly way, and to be given information and advice with the expectation that I would be able to improve my driving. Thank you so much for arranging this and choosing such an effective and supportive person to carry it out. I think it is such a good scheme. I am spreading the news.'

'I attended the 'Engage ' workshop on the 31st October and have to say found it incredibly worthwhile. I am always looking into different ways for my own continuous professional development and believe that we can all learn how to do things slicker, smarter and better! This workshop with the expert coaching and presenting of Mr Ian Edwards seemed to be a great success to all who attended. If we all worked together more often like this it would, as I believe, benefit everybody from outside and inside the road safety educational network. Thank you again for this opportunity.'

'Just wanted to contact you to say again a big thank you for Monday. The feedback from the students and staff has been incredible, very touched by the whole thing. Hopefully we can make this a regular thing at the college with all years experiencing your presentations.'

It was a great opportunity to practice various aspects of machine control with a good focus on braking. This really drove home the bikes capability and allowed us to experience that in a safe controlled environment such that, you would be more likely to use that capability in an emergency, a potential life saver !    The accident analysis drives home the potential dangers that drivers face and the slow speed handling was good practice with demonstration and advice from Police motorcyclists on technique.  The "track time" was the "cherry on the cake" in terms of enjoyment for what was a great day.

'On behalf of all the children and staff at Preston Primary, I would like to thank you and your wonderful instructors for last week's Bikeability course. The adults at our school all said how well the course was run. I will now try to book next year - as I hear things are booking up fast. Many thanks once again.'

'Having just completed the follow up evaluation form you may be interested to know that the assessment drive has been extremely beneficial as far as I am concerned. I now have a positive change in driving style being more aware of the benefits of using the 'best' ' gear to achieve better fuel consumption. On recent journeys I have achieved 44 + mpg on mixed driving conditions (motorways and A roads) whereas previously this would have been 40 mpg max. I am much more aware of using the nearside mirror especially  when making a left hand turn and generally have a new found interest each time I get behind the wheel! Thank you again for your help and encouragement'

‘The feedback I had from the volunteers and our staff that attended on both evenings was very positive with many of the attendees telling us that they found the presentations very informative and that it had given them things to think about.’'Steve and Rina did a great job of getting across some serious messages in an engaging and interesting way.’

'We thought we would send you this quick note to let you know that we have had our driving assessment, and that apart from some minor errors, we both performed pretty well.We would like to let you know that we found our assessor to be a very kind courteous person who acted in a professional manner during our drive and that for Jean the experience has helped to give her confidence back.We would both also like to let you know that we found the presentation at Oake to be really helpful and interesting, and something that has been a great help to both of us.So we both wanted to say thanks to you and also to your department for helping us and hopefully doing our bit to help Somerset Road Safety.'

'I am working through the Engage Course with my pupils and they are enjoying it. I am delighted to say that it has brought a new dimension to my teaching and coaching techniques. My pupils are also enjoying their homework and feel that they are getting more out of their lessons.'

'Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the "Engage" workshop last Wednesday... I left the course inspired and challenged! You certainly have a knack of engaging the very best speakers and course-leaders, as I pointed out to you on the day... Here in Somerset we are privileged - especially in these straitened times - to have the opportunity to benefit from courses such as this, and I hope it will be possible for Somerset Road Safety to continue this excellent work for many more years to come! One remarkable feature of the day was that I saw and heard no evidence whatever of colleagues using the event as an opportunity to moan - a negative attitude which has irritated me when I've attended CPD courses mounted by other organisations recently. There was a really positive spirit, and discussion at breaks, derived from what we had been studying immediately beforehand, was every bit as good as Ian's excellent presentations.'

'I would like to say a big thank you to Somerset Road Safety and the Castle Combe team for putting on a well run course (Rider Performance Day), its a course I would highly recommend if you ride. It can teach the most advanced riders something new.'

'Thank you for organising the training day yesterday. Would you also pass on my thanks to Ian. I found the course very useful for the following reasons: it was engaging, relevant and thought provoking. Ian kept us focused, clarified the role of both coaching and traditional techniques and, perhaps more importantly, showed how each of these relate to the other. The course has given me a way to go forward and a great reminder about the problems teenagers face. I am looking forward to introducing these new ideas into my lessons, hopefully with some success!'
