Important Notes

  • Ensure that you have applied for your insurance in good time and that it is valid from 08:55 or earlier on your training day.
  • Ensure that your motorcycle arrives at Raymond Falla House, St Martins, before 09:00 a.m. 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, roadworthy and legal. We suggest you have second-hand machines checked by a motorcycle dealer to ensure compliance.
    • Important notes: please read these carefully:
      Your instructor will check your motorcycle before training starts.  If he is not satisfied that it is roadworthy 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 your training date or earlier.
  • Things for you to arrange beforehand:
    • Complete the booking form, choosing the date you want to do the course. 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.

Booking your CBT course:

All motorcycles must display ‘L’ plates securely fitted properly and correctly and visible from the front and rear.

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 Certificate of Insurance.
• If you have not already paid, you must bring the correct fee. (See details of the fees here.)
• A safety helmet in good condition conforming to current regulations, your helmet MUST have eye protection such as a visor or goggles 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.
    Motorcycle trousers should be considered as the most ideal, however heavy denim jeans will be accepted as a minimum. (Leggings, Jogging trousers or lightweight trousers will NOT be accepted)
  • Waterproof outer layer. This may be stowed in a convenient place on your motorcycle when not in use.
  • 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. Your footwear should support the ankle and have good rubber soles.

Items of outer clothing which by themselves are not acceptable during training:
• Shorts or Jeans that are torn/holes.

• Skirts or dresses.

• ‘Flip-flops’, sandals or high-heeled shoes.

• T shirts.

Important note:
If your instructor feels you are inappropriately dressed and cannot correct the situation before your lesson starts, he may decide not to let you continue. In that case, you must rebook your training for another day. A rebooking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee. (See details of the fees here.) 

Special needs:
If you have Special Needs, please make this known when signing on.

The day has arrived!  Checking in and registering:
You should arrive no later than 08:30 am on Saturday to register. The date and time of the second session will be arranged with you before you finish. The finishing time on the Saturday is generally around 13:00 am.

Your bike can be locked away overnight for safety and will be ready for you when you return to complete the second part of the course.

If you fail to attend on the date you have been booked and have not cancelled and/or rearranged a new date, you will need to make a new booking, and a re-booking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee.

Please note.

Occasionally, the road ride may be filmed from the instructor’s bike. This is for training and safety purposes only. If you have any objections, please tell your instructor.
Good luck, and enjoy your training!

All motorcycles must display a securely fitted and visible insurance disc or plate. (Insurance holders are available from most of the island’s motorcycle shops.)

If you cannot satisfy any of the above conditions, you will not be able to continue, and you will be required to re-book your training for another day. A re-booking fee may be charged in addition to the course fee. (See details of the fees here)
