If you want to book a test prep, we recommend passing the theory test before booking. Ideally, we want to take you out for test prep two to three weeks before your test date! You cannot book the test’s practical (road ride) section until you have passed the theory part.
Booking your test-prep:
Things for you to arrange beforehand:
• Complete the booking form, which you will find here. Print out and keep a copy of the confirmation page that you will receive once your booking has been made.
• Make sure your driving licence is valid.
• Ensure that your insurance is also valid for the bike you will be training.
• Ensure that your motorcycle controls and lights are working, roadworthy and legal. We suggest you have second-hand machines checked by a motorcycle dealer to ensure compliance.
Your instructor will check your motorcycle before the course starts. If he is not satisfied that it is roadworthy and legal, he may decide not to let you continue; in this 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 and correctly fitted.
Items that you must bring with you on the day:
• Your driving licence is 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.
• 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, depending on the season or the weather:
• A stout jacket, preferably designed for use with a motorcycle. This is compulsory.
• Waterproof outer layer. This may be stowed conveniently 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. This is compulsory.
• Stout footwear. Ideally, your footwear should support the ankle and have good rubber soles. This is compulsory.
Items of outer clothing which by themselves are not acceptable during training:
• Skirts or dresses.
• ‘Flip-flops’, sandals or high-heeled shoes.
• T shirts.
If your instructor feels that you are inappropriately dressed and cannot put the matter right before your training starts, he may decide not to let you continue, in which case you will be required to re-book 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, please ensure that you make this known when booking.
