During this challenging period, your local motorcycle training centre will have had to review their ways of working to ensure that customers and staff remain safe at all times. At North London Motorcycle Training, we are no exception and have implemented strict safety procedures at our training school and training site to protect the wellbeing of anyone who takes a CBT course.
We have fully read the Government guidelines with regards social distancing, and have taken these into account when implementing our safety measures.
In this article, we’ll explain a bit more about the procedures we have put into place so that we have your best interests at heart.
Training School Safety
The day before your CBT course takes place, you will receive a text message informing you of the time to arrive. These arrival times will be staggered to ensure that only one or two people arrive at the same time, thus enforcing the social distancing rule.
Please be aware that if you do arrive early, you will be asked to wait outside until it is safe to enter the premises.
All trainees will be issued with plastic gloves to go under your own motorcycle gloves. Note that where possible we advise you to bring your own motorcycle helmet. If you don’t have a motorcycle helmet, don’t worry we can provide one. Be assured that ALL our motorcycle helmets are sanitised and disinfected each night before reuse.
Once checked in, one of our friendly instructors will then transport you to our training site in Harrow, MIddlesex.
We are very lucky to have access to a 300m2 training site in Harrow. When choosing a training school, it is important to choose one that has a site big enough to practice all the motorcycle training exercises in a safe and controlled environment. We have full, exclusive access to this site and we can practice all the modules and exercises at the required speeds. In addition, at weekends we also have access to the official DVSA site so that you can practice on the actual tarmac where you will be taking your test (for Direct Access Scheme and Enhanced Rider scheme).
Upon arrival at the training site you will be taken through the Off Road checks; these checks are an essential part of the CBT course and must be completed prior before practice training starts. These checks are conducted outside to ensure the safety of our trainees, and staff.
Once you have completed your CBT, and return to our training school, you will be taken to a separate area in our office to receive your CBT certificate.
Social distancing and Be Alert signs are displayed throughout the training school and office to remind people of the guidelines.
Please be assured that NO training is conducted indoors, to ensure the optimum safety of everyone.
