Injuries & Accidents

  1. We will do everything within our power to ensure the safety of our students, however, riding any motorcycle or scooter carries some risk to the rider. The student must understand these risks and agree to undergo training at their own free will. The bikes are fully insured, but you are not. We will not pay for any lost days of work or damage to your personal kit in the event of an accident.

  2. The student must accept responsibility for their own actions during training and any possible injury caused. Students are responsible for the control of the motorcycle, we can only advice you verbally. Avalon Motorcycle Training and our Instructors cannot accept liability or be subject to any claim for any injury or accident you may suffer whilst riding independently or accompanied.

  3. Any student that sustains injury during their training will have their training stopped and medical attention will be sought if needed. We always recommend that medical attention is sought in all cases and that injuries are checked by a medical practitioner. However, if the student is happy to continue the training it will be at their own discretion.

Hiring & Possible Damages to Kit

  1. We can normally provide the use of all the necessary safety equipment free of charge for those students that require it. This service is complementary and it’s not a requirement for us to provide this service. We do hold a significant amount of motorcycle safety helmets and clothing in a variety of sizes to suit most normal head and body sizes, however, should a student not be able to find a helmet or item of clothing that fits, the student will have to provide his/her own.

  2. Students undergoing any test are advised that they MUST wear a pair of sturdy boots that cover the ankle and that allow easy use of the foot controls. We do not supply these therefore, it’s the sole responsibility of the student to provide their own. No refund for missed tests will be given. Students undergoing other training are strongly advised to also wear suitable footwear as training may be cancelled with no refund offered.

Full disclosure must be made by the student, at the time of booking, if he/she knows of any drug/medical/medication (prescription or otherwise) or condition that could impair his/her riding ability.
