  • All cancellations and date change requests notified in time will be subject to a 20% administration fee.

  • Whether signing a written agreement or not at the start of the course, the client is responsible for the care of themselves and the company motorcycle without the need of signing/accepting any further documentation. This agreement is therefore a proof of the hire agreement. At the time of booking, all Trainees automatically enter a vehicle hire agreement with Indie Motorcycle Training Limited which enables them to use the company's vehicles for the duration of their training.

  • Trainees will be liable and responsible for any traffic offences committed and penalties incurred whilst riding the company's vehicles.

  • A minimum of 7 working days' notice is required to cancel/postpone any course, without which the fee will be forfeited.

  • If the student cancels the course that the student is booked on, then:

    • (a)  If the student has given written notice of cancellation to Indie Motorcycle Training Limited not less than 7 clear working days prior to the date the course is due to start, the student will be entitled to a full refund of fees paid (less administration charge 20%) if the course is filled and completed by another student: but if the course is not filled and completed by another student, the student will only be entitled to a refund of fees paid, less a cancellation fee equal to the cost of the moped/motorcycle hire and to 50% of the cost of the Instructors wages.

  • In the event the student is unable to attend, any re-booking will be charged at 50% of the normal full price cost (except Theory Tests, Module 1 and Module 2 tests which will be charged at full price). There are no exceptions, and we recommend taking out private insurance to cover any unforeseen events.

 

  • If a continuous course is booked with the CBT being day 1 and the student fails to reach the required standard, this will put the rest of the course in jeopardy resulting in the remaining course cost being lost. We always recommend that novice students only book and complete the CBT course before booking further training
