Terms and Conditions
Please take the time to read the following terms and conditions as they are there for your safety information and protection. These terms should be read and construed as forming an agreement between Rider Training NZ Ltd, here after referred to as “RTNZ”, and the student or customer here after referred to as “the student”.
Safety and responsibilities
RTNZ will endeavour to make your training as safe and enjoyable as possible. However, there is always a small element of risk in connection with the use of any Motorcycle, which cannot be totally eliminated. Unlike a car, your instructor can have no direct control over your vehicle and ultimately it is your responsibility to ride safely under the guidance of our instructors. RTNZ and its employees will not be accountable for any accident or incident that may occur during the training. Any damages occurred will be at the cost of the student / applicant.
You are responsible for always acting in accordance with the directions and advice given to you by your instructor during your training sessions. You are also responsible for making sure that you are adequately dressed and protected for motorcycle riding. You are obliged to inform us of any physical condition or otherwise that could adversely affect safety or training. You must not be over tired, injured, or suffering from any ailment or have taken any drugs which could affect your riding. You must inform your instructor if there are any problems in this respect. The student must arrive in plenty of time to allow for the course to start on time. Lateness will result in loss of the students allocated training time. The Instructor has the right to halt or suspend training of a customer if he/she believes the student is incapacitated in any way through drink or drugs, or fails to comply with instructions or safety standards.
Cancellations & Refunds
Life can throw the occasional curve ball. You may fall sick or be called back for emergency work. RTNZ recognizes that situations arise that may require you to cancel or change your booking. If you can give us at least 48 hours notice prior to commencement of your course we are happy to rebook a time to suit both parties. This can be done either by email or phone call / txt. Anything less than 48hrs will incur a minimum of 50% of course payment for loss of downtime. The CBTA fees may be be forfeited by the student under the following circumstances:

Use of own Motorcycle for Test
Please ensure that the Motorcycle you use for CBTA is a Road-Registered and is Road-Legal condition with a Minimum Engine size of 125cc. This is due to being required to do 'Open Road Speeds'. Anything smaller usually will not be suitable for CBTA Training or Testing. In short the responsibility for ensuring that your bike is suitable and eligible for test is yours. RTNZ reserves the right to refuse to train a student on their own machine if they deem the machine to be unsuitable for training purposes. RTNZ accepts no responsibility for any loss or damage, for any reason, to any students personal property. Any damage caused to a students own Motorcycle whilst being used for training and / or testing purposes is the responsibility of the student.
