Introduction & WLMT Courses

In order to undertake ANY of the training courses provided at WLMT you would be required to take an eyesight check. If you use your glasses for the eyesight check, you will be required to wear them on the road. You’ll have to read a number plate from a distance of:

  • 20 metres for vehicles with a *new-style number plate
  • 20.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate (*New-style number plates start with 2 letters followed by 2 numbers, for example LU65 XYZ).

Need to Know

You will also need to present a valid provisional UK, full (car) UK or Northern Ireland licence with a provisional category A. If you have an old-style paper licence, this must be presented with a valid passport.

EU licences may be accepted if supported with a D91 confirmation of registration certificate. Depending on the international country of issue it may be possible to exchange your licence for a UK licence. Click the link in Important links.

If you have a category (A) on your licence that is followed by code (79), restrictions apply. This means that as a car licence holder you have acquired a Tricycle (3 wheeler) licence, however, your category A (79) (Provisional) becomes validated with a current CBT certificate.

Course Information

Safety First

All WLMT courses include loan bike, motorcycle helmet, jacket, gloves and a DVSA approved Instructor.

Everyone learns at a different pace and at WLMT, FREE individual assessments are carried out so that we can offer you the right training course. Your instructor will discuss this with you at the end of your assessment.

If your instructor believes that you have not met the required and safe standard during any on-site course or on the road, you could be asked to return at a later time/date to complete your training, or continue practising on a smaller machine until you are up to a safe and satisfactory standard.

WE ALSO OFFER ONE-TO-ONE INSTRUCTION FOR ALL OF OUR COURSES. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION

On the Day

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your course to register. Your instructor will meet you at the gate. As we operate from a school, unauthorised and unsupervised entry is prohibited. Please bring ALL of your documents with you and ensure you are not late otherwise you will be asked to re-book. No refund will be offered for CBT as you must be present for and complete each element before you can progress onto the next. This is the same for other specific courses unless prior arrangement is confirmed by WLMT.

All on-site training is carried out in a safe and controlled DVSA authorised site, with DVSA approved instructor.

On-site parking is available. It is a no smoking site, and we kindly ask you to respect the school premises.

Tea, coffee and refreshments are provided, though we advise that you bring a packed lunch, and you are more than welcome to use the microwave and store food in the refrigerator.
