You are responsible for ensuring you are dressed appropriately when you arrive for training and have a roadworthy motorbike or scooter.
You must have the correct category license and insurance cover.

You may still be charged if you are not suitably dressed, your bike is not roadworthy, or your license/insurance is not valid. In this case, you must wait for the next training date and rebook.

GMTS has a strict code, in line with the local Government, and there will be no exceptions where students’ safety is involved.



  • A pair of motorcycle boots or shoes MUST cover your ankles. (Ugg Boots and not permitted).
  • Motorcycle trousers or jeans, a pair of heavy denim jeans—tight-fitting or ripped jeans are unacceptable—and no leggings, jeggings, ski pants, tracksuit bottoms, or joggers.
  • Jacket – motorcycle or thick jacket – lightweight jackets/ski jackets are unacceptable as they offer little protection.
  • Gloves – motorcycle gloves must be worn. No gloves, no training.
  • Helmet – must be in good condition, fit correctly, comply with the current EU Standard ECE 22.05/22.06 or British Standard BS 6658:1985, and carry the BSI Kitemark. The safety helmet visor or any other form of eye protection must also comply with EU safety standards. We strongly recommend that you purchase a new helmet before attending CBT. When attending any training course, your Instructor will check your helmet; if it does not meet standards, your training will NOT go ahead.

If you have any questions regarding clothing, instructors will be at GMTS on weekends and can discuss any issues or concerns.  Additionally, local motorcycle dealers can advise you on equipment and ensure that it is appropriate, meets safety standards and fits correctly.

 Roadworthy Motorcycle/Scooter

On arrival, your machine will be checked and must comply with the following basic requirements:

  • Brakes – both front and rear brakes must be working; brake pads must be checked for wear and replaced if worn.
  • Chain – should be lubricated and adjusted to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Electrics – working indicators, front and rear lights, brake lights when applying the front or rear brake, working horn.
  • Suspension – must not be leaking, and suspension should operate smoothly.
  • L Plates must be affixed to the machine securely and upright at the front and rear.
  • A valid insurance disk must be affixed to the bike.
  • Mirrors—You should have two mirrors. Students will benefit greatly from having a right and left mirror fitted.
  • Tyres – must be correctly inflated, have sufficient tread depth, and not suffer from any damage or be in poor condition due to age.
  • General condition—Loose bodywork, loose cables, or anything dangerous to the rider or other trainees will not be allowed.

If in doubt, have the motorcycle/scooter assessed/checked by a qualified motorcycle mechanic.
