Please note: For your safety you must be able to communicate in English & have a basic knowledge of the highway code to complete any training with MTS. You must also wear appropriate clothing and footwear and without this you will be sent away and forfeit your training and fees. The list is non exhaustive but includes a minimum of jeans without holes, rips, tears, not skinny jeans nor shorts, skirts or track suits, and you must have boots (non steel toe cap) for all training beyond CBT, and sturdy footwear (ideally boots non steel toe cap), not sandals, Crocs, deck shoes or similar for CBT/NRTC.

MTS Sussex like to give every student time to learn at their own pace, however the CBT is a group course therefore we have to progress as a group which is why we offer New Rider Training prior to the CBT. It’s vital for the course to start on time as there is a lot to cover. If you arrive late we may have already started so you will forfeit your training. Please allow sufficient travelling time, and if you think you may have to cancel, let us know as soon as possible, we may be able to reschedule if we can fill your place so you won’t forfeit the full amount.  Equally the end time is merely a guideline, so please allow a whole day for the CBT.

Government figures state 1 in 5 candidates do not attain a CBT certificate on their first attempt, so please be aware if you do not safely complete all exercises or cannot achieve the standard set out by the DVSA, you will be required to either book a New Rider Training Course or book a place on another CBT course and all further training (including NRTC & CBT) is charegable at the current rate, no free training nor refunds partial or otherwise will be made.

If you're using your own bike: You must provide evidence of current road tax, insurance and MOT (if applicable.) Your bike must be roadworthy and display full size L-Plates front and rear and. Your bike must not have an after market / noisy exhaust, if your instructor deems the bike unacceptable you will forfeit your training unless you hire one of MTS school bikes (if available) and pay the difference in cost. You must wear an approved safety helmet, motorcycle jacket and gloves along with a minimum of sturdy footwear and denim jeans without rips/tears. If you arrive without any of the above you will forfeit your training.
