If a licence is found to be invalid the customer will forfeit all or part of the training fee.
    It is also a good idea to read an up-to-date Highway Code before any training commences.
  5. If an invalid licence or no licence is produced or the customer cannot comply with the eyesight test the session cannot proceed.
  6. We will provide a helmet, and gloves, jacket and waterproofs CAN be loaned if ordered at time of booking for training but sensible warm, strong clothing and boots (NOT trainers) are required for effective instruction and safety. The instructor may cancel or re-arrange the session if the customer's clothing is deemed to be compromising safety.
  7. If the customer cancels where the instructor considers the weather conditions prevailing would not compromise safety or does not comply with any of the previous stated conditions then the customer would forfeit the training fee or deposit for that session.
  8. In the case of Compulsory Basic Training if the customer does not reach the required standard on the first attempt the customer will be allowed one further attempt free of charge (excluding special offers) if arranged on the day of the CBT dependant on the training schedule.

  10. Courses must start on time. If a customer is late for whatever reason they will forfeit the fee or deposit for that session if it has already started.
  11. All payments made for training are based on the course being taken in an agreed and reasonable time. If training is adversely affected by an interruption because of circumstances outwith the control of GMTS (Tayside) Ltd and progress is delayed unreasonably, GMTS (Tayside) Ltd reserves the right to make an additional charge for training. Any interruption in training in excess of 28 days would be deemed unreasonable.
  12. In the event a customer uses their own machine for training purposes it must be in a roadworthy condition, with regulation "L" plates, and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation and the customer must make available to the instructor the required legal documents such as insurance certificate, a valid MoT certificate (if applicable) and a valid road fund licence (tax disc). GMTS (Tayside) Ltd reserves the right to refuse to train a customer on their own machine if it does not comply with the necessary legal requirements and consequently the forfeit of the training fee or deposit for that session. Any damage caused to the customer's own machine whilst being used for training is the responsibility of the customer. If you are taking a motorcycle test then it must have a MPH speedo (no stickers or overlays) and is suitable for the test you wish to take, i.e., (A1, A2 etc). In short the responsibility for ensuring that your bike is suitable and eligible for test is yours.
  13. The instructor has the right to halt or suspend the training of a customer if they believe the customer to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you are overtired, or feel unwell at any time during your course, please pull over in a safe place and bring this to the attention of your instructor.
