- Ensure that your motorcycle arrives at St Peter Port School before 09:00 am on the day of your training. If it is a new motorcycle from one of the local dealers, they will probably deliver it for you, however do check and confirm with them.
- 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.Important notes, please read these carefuly:
• Your motorcycle will be checked by your instructor before training starts. If he is not satisfied that it is road worthy and legal, he may decide not to let you continue.
- Make an early application for your driving licence and ensure that it is valid from the date of your training or earlier.
