However you should also do your best to prevent injury or accident to yourself or others. Motorcycle Training 101 and our Instructors cannot accept liabillity or be subject to any claim for any injury to accident you may suffer whilst riding independently or accompanied. If you are unsure about anything get it clarified before carrying on. Do as your instructor tells you. On the day of training you will be asked to sign a disclaimer stating that you  hold a current UK driving licence are not disqualified and have no known medical conditions which will prohibit you from legally riding a motorcycle.

1. Our courses are regulated by the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and you are required by law to present your licence for verification. You must on all sessions bring with you and show for inspection the original of your full or provisional UK driving licence. You cannot train without a valid licence.

If you have an old pre photocard licence you will need your valid in-date UK passport to be presented with it Your licence is your responsibility and Motorcycle Training 101 cannot accept any liability for incorrect provision

2. At the time of booking a deposit must be paid to secure the course dates. (non refundable if cancelling less than 10 days before the course) 101 operates a policy of a maximum two pupils per instructor for all 'on road' training. There is usually a waiting list. Therefore if you decide to cancel your course please give as much notice as possible so that someone else can use the training time. Refunds will not be made if less than 10 days notice is given.

3. The balance of payment is to be made on the first day of training. In cash

4. Courses are conducted in English and radio systems will be used on road.  You must have a good command of English and be able to hear and act upon instructions given over a radio earpiece. If in doubt please present for a face to face meeting before committing to a course.

5. You must attend all scheduled days of training in full and on time.  CBT has a set legal structure that requires full on time attendance without exception. Late attendance on any session will result in your training being cancelled and fees forfeited.

NO SHORTS OR SANDALS (see training section) Bring waterproofs if rain is forecast or looks likely, (we have some available if needed)
