Derbyshire Motorbike School Terms and Conditions

Please take time to read the following terms and conditions they are there for your safety and protection. These terms should be read and construed as forming an agreement between Derbyshire Motorbike School hereafter referred to as DMS and the student or customer hereafter referred to as the the student.

Safety & Responsibilities.

DMS will at all time endeavour to make your training as safe and enjoyable as possible.

However, there is always a small element of risk in connection with the use of any motorcycle which cannot be eliminated. Unlike a car your instructor has no direct control over your motorcycle ultimately it is your responsibility to ride safely under the supervision of our instructors. DMS and its employees will not be responsible for any accident or incident that may occur during training.

Accidental Damage.

Should on the rare occurrence the student be unfortunate to damage the motorcycle, you will be liable to pay out no more than the cost of repairs, up to the cost of our insurance excess of £500.

Student Conduct

You are at all times to act in accordance with the directions and advice given to you by your instructor during your training seasons. You are also responsible for making sure that you are adequately dressed and protected for motorcycle riding.

You are obliged to inform us of any medical/physical condition or otherwise that could adversely affect your safety or training. You must inform your instructor if there are any problems in this respect. The student must arrive in plenty of time to allow the course to start on time; lateness will result in loss of the students allocated training time, the instructor has the right to halt, suspend the training of a student if he believes the student to be incapacitated in any way through; drink, drugs or fails to comply with instructions or safety standards.

Cancellations & Refunds

DMS recognises that situations may arise from time to time that may require you to cancel or change your booking. If you can give us at least 24 hours notice prior to the commencement of your course/lesson we will be happy to re-book a time to suit both parties. This can be done by calling 01773 605655 or 07581 017754. No shows may be charged the cost of 50% of the session that was booked, asked to pay upfront for future training fees or black listed from further training with DMS.

The student under the following circumstances will forfeit CBT or training fees:
  1. During the course/lesson you do not adhere to the instructors instructions or damage the motorcycle.
  2. If during your course/lesson you decide not to continue with your training no refund for the cost of the course/lesson will be given.
  3. If, when on a pre paid training course, he/she doesn't complete their tests within 6 months (This is at the discretion of DMS)

The instructor reserves the right to withdraw a student form the training course/lesson if the instructor believes that the required standards of safety and control will not or have not been achieved. In this situation an alternative course/lesson may be substituted to enable the student to acquire the necessary level of competence.

Use of Own Motorcycle for CBT.

If you are using a motorcycle or scooter other than one that is provided by DMS please ensure that the vehicle is a road-registered motorcycle and is in a road worthy condition conforming to UK laws (MOT, Insurance, Tax). You will need to arrange to have the motorcycle dropped off at the training ground as you are not permitted to ride it to the training ground if you do not hold a valid and in date CBT certificate. In short the responsibility for ensuring the motorcycle is suitable and eligible for CBT is yours. DMS reserves the right to refuse to train a student on their own machine if we deem the machine to be unfit for training purposes.

DMS accepts no responsibility for loss or damage, for any reason, to any student's personal property. Any damage caused to a student's own motorcycle whilst being used for training purposes is the responsibility of the student.
