IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

IT IS THE STUDENTS RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE AN LAMS-APPROVED MOTORCYCLE AND SAFETY GEAR FOR ANY TRAINING / TESTING. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A MOTORCYCLE AVAILABLE, WE CAN PROVIDE DETAILS ON WHO YOU CAN RENT ONE FROM.

Things to check before your Session:

 1: ENSURE YOUR MOTORCYCLE IS LAMS APPROVED

 If you are unsure your Motorcycle is LAMS-Approved either Contact Us or check out the list HERE. 

  • The Motorcycle has to be on the list and exact model to be an approved Motorcycle - Example: A LTD440 is on the list but its slightly smaller cousin the LTD400 is not on the list (even though it would be a LAMS bike).
  • Also some models are not approved due to no power restrictions - Example: A GSR600U is approved but not a GSR600.
  • No Yamaha Tri-Citys are permitted as they are usually registered as a Car and not a Motorcycle - hence why they can be ridden on a car licence.
  • No Motorcycles permitted on a yellow Dealer-Plate

          NOTE:  Due to NZTA requirements we can no longer accept Suzuki GN125 for training or testing. You must provide a Motorcycle that can maintain open road speeds

2: ROAD COMPLIANCE

       What to check:

  • No damage that could be a Safety Issue 
  • Chain
  • Tyres
  • Wheels
  • Mirrors
  • Indicators, Brakes, Head & Taillights
  • Horn
  • Registration and Warrant Of Fitness
  • L-Plate (Learner only)


       Examples

  • Broken levers / footpegs, loose panels
  • Tension (Not too tight or too loose)
  • Pressure / Tread / Damage
  • Damage
  • Minimum of one intact mirror 
  • Working / lenses intact
  • Working
  • Rego and WOF is current
  • Displayed on the rear of the Motorcycle 

If your Motorcycle does not Pass this Compliance check - The Training and / or Test cannot commence until the Non-Compliance is fixed. Your options will be:

  1. If it can be fixed on the spot, this will cost you time from your Training Session
  2. If it is a Test Only, this could result in a Fail test
  3. Instructors discretion on what other action to take 


3: READ UP ON CBTA

Read this PDF about CBTA. This will give you an insight on how the CBTA is done / what you are assessed on etc..


4: KNOW WHERE YOU ARE MEETING

  Most often it will be booked for Z Westgate - Directions Here

On the day of your Session:

5: CANCELLATIONS

We do not postpone or cancel sessions very often. We do continue in wet weather unless it becomes too dangerous (at our discretion). We will contact you if there is any change to your Session.

If you need to cancel, the sooner you let us know the better. See our Terms and Conditions page for more details.


6: BRING YOUR DRIVERS LICENCE

You must bring your Drivers Licence with you, if you do not have it on your person the session cannot commence.

If you are booked in for a CBT1 or 2 and you have a Temporary Licence (Paper licence) you will also need to bring another form of Photo Identification. Acceptable Id's:

- Passport

- Firearms Licence

- 18+ Card

CBT2 PLEASE NOTE:

If you are booked in for a CBT2 (Restricted to Full Licence) we need to see proof that you have held the 6L for a minimum of 9 months. We cannot confirm this if you present a Temporary Licence so session would not be able to commence.

IF YOU LICENCE HAS EXPIRED:

All licence extensions will end on 31st May 2022. If your licence has expired (but have been informed by NZTA it is still current under the Covid19 extension) you will need to have a Temporary Licence to sit your training and/or test session.  This can be arranged by going into your local NZTA agency and asking for a Temporary Licence to sit your CBT. If you are sitting a CBT2 please ensure that you have proof that you have held the 6R for minimum of 9 months (as noted above)..  If you are unsure about your licence situationplease contact us before your session.  


7:WEAR THE GEAR

You are required to wear suitable Motorcycle Safety Gear. This comprises a minimum of:

  • Approved Motorcycle Helmet - AS1698 / NZS5430 / SNELL
  • Jacket and Pants
  • Boots or Enclosed Shoes
  • Gloves 

At a minimum all skin is to be covered - No shirts, shorts or open toe shoes

More information about Safety Gear requirements - NZ Roadcode for Motorcyclists

If you are not compliant with these requirements, Training and / or Testing cannot commence until rectified.


8: TURN UP EARLY

We recommend arriving 15mins before your start time. If you are late this time will be taken out of your Training time or could result in a fail for a Test Only Booking.

Ensure you have at least enough fuel for 100kms, if unsure fuel up before the session starts. If you run out of fuel during the Test, this could result in a fail.


9: OTHER STUFF

  • If you have an Intercom already installed, we can usually pair them to our units if you know how to put your Intercom into 'Pairing Mode'. This makes for a quick and easy setup.


  • No Cameras or GPS units permitted 


  • If you unsure about anything - please ask! Its better to be prepared and less stress on the day....  so you can concentrate on your session.
