DVSA Tests STILL ALL Cancelled... BUT CBT Training Is Still Available
The DVSA announced that with effect from 21st March 2020, all driving tests for Cars, Motorcycles, ADI's Lorry's & Buses will be suspended for up to 3 months. At this moment in time, ALL tests are still currently suspended. We will update our website and Social Media platforms as soon as this changes, so please continue to monitor this page.
As such, ALL full licence training courses have also currently been cancelled until further notice.
CBT Training Courses Are Still Running As Normal
Currently, THIS IS NOT AFFECTING CBT TRAINING COURSES which are still going ahead as planned.
Following the Governments announcement on 10th May 2020, encouraging people to return to work, but at the same time, avoid public transport, we are now able to offer CBT courses to anyone who wishes to use a scooter/motorcycle as a self isolated mode of transport. We are continuing to adhere to Social Distancing rules & guidelines, and as such, CBT Training will currently only be offered on Automatic bikes only, and on a 1-2-1 basis (1 student to 1 Instructor).
It is therefore a condition of your booking that all riders will be required to sign a self declaration confirming they are attending CBT for the purposes obtaining a safe, self isolated mode of transport for commuting or employment purposes. If, in the very unlikely event, the CBT is challenged by any Police officer, and they determine that the explanation that the rider presents is not adequate to meet the requirements as determined in the link above, then the CBT will have to be cancelled immediately. In such circumstances, no refund shall be payable to the rider. These terms are in addition to our normal booking terms and conditions.
We cannot determine whether or not you fit into this criteria. This is down to you to decide, and as such, we will be asking all pupils to sign a declaration, self certifying that they are undertaking CBT course on the basis that they are following Government advice and guidelines.
Whilst our courses include bike hire, we are currently NOT supplying any equipment for hire due to hygiene reasons. Therefore YOU MUST bring your own helmet, gloves and appropriate riding attire, as this WILL NOT be provided. Anyone who turns up without their own equipment (helmet, gloves and clothing which covers all areas of exposed skin) will not be allowed to participate in the course, and NO REFUNDS will be issued.
If you can, please bring your own ear piece/in-ear earphones which have/or are compatible with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Our instructors can supply this for you to borrow if you do not have your own, but these have to be shared amongst other pupils as well, and can only be cleaned with sanitising wipes, so bringing your own would be a lot more hygienically suitable, and safer, for both yourself and others.
BOOKING NOTICE: Coronavirus – Covid 19
Please do not proceed with your booking if you are concerned about contracting symptoms of Coronavirus.
Should you need to cancel your booking due to symptoms, diagnosis, or self isolation requirements resulting from Corona Virus, you WILL still be subject to our cancellation terms and charges as normal.
In the interests of health & safety, we reserve the right to cancel any training session, for any pupil, if that pupil shows any sign of what we deem to be possible Coronavirus. This is to protect all other pupils and our Instructors.
Following Government guidelines on social distancing, CBT training will currently only be completed on a ratio of 1 student to 1 instructor. These ratio's are for the safety of all pupils and instructors, and may involve us asking you to undertake classroom sessions outside, rather than the confined and covered space of a classroom environment. We ask that these measures are kindly respected at all times.
Full Licence Courses & Test Resits
The DVSA have announce that they have cancelled all category of driving/riding tests for up to 3 months. This could be shorter, or it could be longer, we simply do not know as the coronavirus is uncharted territory for us all, even the DVSA.
As such, we are currently not taking any further bookings for any full licence training for any Category of licence (Cars, Motorcycles, Buses or Lorries).
