WoF and Registration must be current and displayed. The motorcycle must be in a warrantable standard when inspected before the assessment. If your machine is not compliant or your clothing is not appropriate, the assessment will not be conducted in the interests of your own safety.

I cant speak highly enough of Neil and his professionalism towards guiding me in getting my full Class 6 license which I now have achieved. It all started with him assessing me for my basic handling skills and right through to now with my full license. I highly recommend anyone who wants to get the class 6, to do the whole thing with Neil and also strongly recommend doing his Bronze and Silver “Ride Forever” classes in the mix. You will be a much better rider for it. Thanks again Neil your a legend……. Scotty

It was great working with Neil to get my full motorcycle license. He was very helpful, and I came away, not only with my competency certificate, but with more information to reflect on and improve my riding skills further.
Thanks Neil.
