GP MOTORCYCLE TRAINING TERMS & CONDITIONS:
- Lateness – This will count as a no-notice cancellation and will result in you losing your booking/course fee, so please make sure that you allow plenty of time to get to us.
- Non-Attendance – If you fail to attend the course without prior notification, this would be treated as a no-notice cancellation and you would need to re-book and pay any fee due again.
- Changing Dates – If you need to change the date of your course (CBT, assessments, private tuition), you must give us 7 days prior to your course date, otherwise you will lose all fees paid. If you wish to change the dates of your intensive course (or all courses involving a DSA practical test), we require 21 days’ notice. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have received such notifications.
- Under 18 – If you do not bring a parent or legal guardian with you to sign our terms and conditions of training, this would be treated as a no-notice cancellation and you would need to re-book and pay any fee due again.
- Documentation – If you do not bring the correct documentation and therefore we are unable to train you, this would be treated as a no-notice cancellation and you would need to re-book and pay any fee due again.
- CBT: Providing you have given us 7 days’ notice in writing prior to the start of your CBT course, we will refund the fee to you less a £15.00 administration fee. If you do not give us 7 days’ notice prior to your course, no refund will be due. All qualifying refunds will only be considered within 28 days of you paying for the course.
- Intensive course: Providing you have given us 21 days’ notice in writing prior to the start of your intensive course, we will refund you the course fee less a 10% administration fee. If you do not give us 21 days’ notice prior to your course, no refund will be due. All qualifying refunds will only be considered within 28 days of you paying for the course.
- Should a course not be completed once started, no refund will be given irrespective of reason for non-continuance.
- Course completion – All courses must be completed within 6 months of the commencement date or additional fees may be incurred.
Eyesight – you must, by law, be able to read (with or without corrective lenses) a number plate at a distance of 66 feet (20 metres) if you intend to take a vehicle out onto public roads. An eyesight test is one of the first parts of the CBT course and your course will be terminated at this point if you fail it. If the eyesight test is failed you will have to pay for another place.
General fitness – If you have any medical condition (including pregnancy) that may prevent you from riding a vehicle safely on the road, you must seek medical advice before doing so and provide GP Motorcycle Training with written evidence. (Cancellation conditions still apply). It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they are fit to ride a motorcycle/moped.
Balance – The student will need to have ridden a bicycle or a motorcycle recently (within the past two years) before we can start training. If poor balance is displayed by the student the course will be terminated and the fees lost.
Physical or Mental Impairment – You must advise of any condition that would affect you from fully participating in your course. GP Motorcycle Training will not take responsibility in financial or legal way if you have withheld information from us. This may also mean that it could invalidate your insurance.
It is a condition of participating in any course that the student:
- Is licensed to ride a moped/motorcycle on public roads in the United Kingdom.
- Must have their licence when the student attends for a course. It needs to be either a Full or Provisional (UK) driving licence, or a full EU licence with D58/2 (showing valid provisional motorcycle entitlement). If they have the photocard licence, they MUST bring both parts, both the photocard and the paper counterpart licence (D740). No licence means the student cannot attend the course, which is a Driving Standards Agency regulation and the course fees will be forfeit. There are no exceptions. No other documents, photocopies or other evidence of entitlement can be accepted. If you have the old-style paper licence, then that is acceptable on its own, as long as it is intact and legible.
The Student’s Vehicle
It is a condition of participating in any course that the student will need to display to GP Motorcycle Training the following items:
- a valid insurance cover note
- a current MOT certificate if applicable (if your bike is over three years old)
- a current road fund licence (tax) displayed on the moped/motorcycle
- fitted front and rear learner plates (full size)
All documents must be the originals; no photocopies or facsimiles can be accepted
It is a condition of participating in any course that the student wears suitable protective clothing including a safety helmet, which complies with UK legal requirements (BS6658A or B), or the current European standard of ECE R22.05. GP Motorcycle Training recommends wearing good quality motorcycle gloves, motorcycle boots, sturdy jacket and trousers.
GP Motorcycle Training Equipment
It is not possible to cover our radios and helmets by extra insurance and we will charge for any damage to its helmets/radios involved in any accident. (£60 each)
Guaranteed Training Scheme
If a GP Motorcycle Training Instructor feels the student needs further training to reach the required standard on Compulsory Basic Training then this will be offered for another date. This will be at a reduced rate and you must undertake your further training within one month of the last course date to be eligible for this scheme.
GP Motorcycle Training accepts no liability for any claim, loss, damage, or expense incurred by the student as a result of the breach of any of these terms and conditions by the student.
