Things for you to arrange beforehand:
• Complete the booking form, noting the number of your previous licence and the date of its expiry. You will find the booking form here. Print out and keep a copy of the confirmation page that you will receive once your booking has been made.
• Make an early application for your new driving licence and ensure that it is valid from the date of your training or earlier.
• Ensure that you have applied for your insurance in good time and that it is valid from 08:55 or earlier on the day of your course.
• Ensure that your motorcycle is in proper working order, road worthy and legal. We suggest that you have second-hand machines checked by a motorcycle dealer to ensure compliance.
Your motorcycle will be checked by your instructor before the course starts. If he is not satisfied that it is road worthy and legal, he may decide not to let you continue, in which case you will be required to re-book your course for another day. A re-booking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee. (See details of the fees here.) All motorcycles and scooters must have ‘L’ plates securely fitted in the proper and correct fashion.
Items that you must bring with you on the day:
• Provisional Driving Licence in the correct category for the motorcycle you will be using while training (or an official receipt from the Vehicle Registration and Licence Authority confirming that your application for a licence has been accepted).
• Valid insurance certificate.
• If you have not already paid, you must bring the correct fee with you. (See details of the fees here.)
• A safety helmet in good condition conforming to current regulations, and which is a proper fit for you. We do not recommend using a second-hand or used helmet.
We also strongly recommend that you bring the following items of clothing with you, irrespective of the season or the weather:
• A stout jacket, preferably designed for use with a motorcycle.
• Waterproof outer layer. When not in use, this may be stowed in a convenient place on your motorcycle.
• Warm inner layer.
• Gloves, preferably designed for use with a motorcycle and which, as well as providing warmth, will give good protection against knocks and abrasions to the hands and fingers.
• Stout footwear. Ideally your footwear should give support to the ankle and have good, rubber soles.
Items of outer clothing which by themselves are not acceptable during training
• Skirts or dresses.
• ‘Flip-flops’, sandals or high heeled shoes and Ugg Boots.
• T shirts.
If your instructor feels that you are inappropriately dressed and are unable to put the matter right before your ride starts, he may decide not to let you continue, in which case you will be required to re-book your course for another day. A re-booking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee. (See details of the fees here.)
If you have Special Needs of any sort then please ensure that you make this known at the time of booking.
Good Luck and enjoy the course!
