About SkilledBiker

SkilledBiker is advanced motorcycle coaching on UK roads along with organised tours across the UK and Continental Europe.

‘We’ will abide by local and when abroad, international road traffic laws at all times and ‘you’ will be expected to do the same.

‘We’ retain the right to decide upon the local need for SkilledBiker delivery and, no guarantee is given or implied around delivery, or continuance of delivery, in any given area.

‘We’ retain the right to set a minimum level of attendance and may cancel any training/tour where minimum numbers are not reached.

‘Our’ infrastructure and delivery model may vary dependent upon local requirements, arrangements, and resources. ‘We’ reserve the right to make alterations as necessary and without notice. Prior to booking training in any area, ‘you’ should contact ‘us’ to ensure that the delivery model and infrastructure meets with ‘your’ requirements.

‘Our’ training and tours are designed to engage with motorcyclists to evidence the benefits of accredited/advanced post-test motorcycle training, identify the need for such training for individual riders and provide a referral route to local providers (including ‘us’) of accredited/advanced post-test training.

‘Our’ 1:1 and group coaching sessions will normally last a minimum of 7 hours (including breaks).  

‘Our’ training includes the following elements:

  1. Theory input– online video meeting, to include input on advanced riding techniques and how ‘you’ assess ‘your’ current riding ability and ‘your’ agreed development needs.
  2. Observed ride– maximum ratio of two riders per SkilledBiker coach, to include ongoing roadside briefing and debriefing.
  3. Feedback – assessment of ‘your’ riding, delivered verbally and/or in written form via email if specifically requested by ‘you’
  4. Signposting – based on ‘our’ observations and assessment of ‘your’ riding, ‘we’ will make recommendations regarding your ongoing skills, safety and rider development.  

‘Our’ responsibilities

The ‘site’ has been compiled in good faith from sources ‘we’ believe to be reliable, current, and trustworthy. That said, material on the ‘site’ may be out of date at any given time and ‘we’ are under no obligation to update such material, although ‘our’ aim is to update the ‘site’ regularly.

‘Your’ consumer rights

The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 apply to the sale of services without face-to-face contact via a variety of media including the internet and telephone. To comply with the requirements of these regulations, ‘we’ provide the necessary pre-contractual, right to cancel and supplier delivery obligation information within ‘our’ terms & conditions.

Information (pre-contractual) around ‘our’ identity, service characteristics, pricing, payments, address, advance payments, and delivery arrangements are in ‘our’ terms and conditions.

‘You’ should be aware of ‘your’ consumers’ right to cancel ‘your’ training or ‘your’ tour booking.

Full details can be found by reading the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.

‘Our’ contract with ‘you’ becomes binding when ‘you’ complete ‘your’ training or ‘your’ tour booking, providing it can be shown that ‘we’ received ‘your’ booking. We cannot be held responsible for bookings not received because of circumstances beyond ‘our’ control.

When ‘you’ complete ‘your’ training or ‘your’ tour booking, ‘you’ will receive a confirmation e-mail including details of ‘your’ right to cancel.

Pre-contractual information is also given during ‘our’ on-line booking process and in a format allowing ‘you’ to print/save to durable media.

If ‘you’ book via the telephone, ‘you’ will be verbally advised of the pre-contractual information and ‘you’ will be emailed a copy of the pre-contractual information together with advice about ‘your’ right to cancel.

‘You’ have the right to cancel ‘your’ booking for a period of 14-days, counting from the day after ‘your’ booking was completed.

Once 14-days pass, counting from the day after ‘your’ booking was completed, ‘your’ right to cancel (without fees) will end.

If ‘you’ cancel ‘your’ training or ‘your’ tour within 14-days of booking, ‘you’ can request a refund of the money ‘you’ have paid ‘us’.

Where requested, we will return ‘your’ funds within 28 working days.

To exercise ‘your’ right to cancel, ‘you’ must inform ‘us’ in writing to: SkilledBiker Ltd, The Mac Walker Building, 71A High Street, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B61 8AQ or by email to [email protected].

A phone call is not sufficient.

The effective date of cancellation is the date on which ‘you’ give notice of cancellation to ‘us’ in writing or by email.

‘We’ would advise ‘you’ to keep some evidence of having given ‘us’ cancellation notice, such as a certificate of posting or confirmation/copy of email.

The Consumer Credit Act 1974 provides protection should someone else fraudulently use ‘your’ payment card to pay ‘us’. In these circumstances ‘you’ are entitled to cancel the payment and be reimbursed in part or whole by ‘your’ card issuer. This is something ‘you’ must discuss with ‘your’ card issuer. ‘We’ also advise ‘you’ to report such matters to ‘your’ local police.

The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 do not generally affect ‘your’ consumer rights under other legislation. Once ‘your’ 14-day ‘cooling off’ period (Consumer Credit Act 1974 and Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013) has passed, any cancellations ‘you’ make will attract fees.

Cancellation and amendments

‘Our’ cancellation, transfer and associated administration charges are as follows:

For a cancellation made by ‘you’, to ‘your’ training with less than 14-days’ notice (including the day of the training) – will result in 100% of ‘your’ fee being retained by ‘us’.

For a cancellation/amendment, made by ‘you’, to ‘your’ training with more than 14-days’ notice (including the day of ‘your’ training) where a transfer is possible– will result in a £50 administration charge being applied to ‘your’ resulting booking – change, transfer, refund, and/or issue of vouchers.

For a cancellation/amendment, made by ‘you’, to ‘your’ training with more than 14-days’ notice, where a transfer is not possible – ‘we’ will issue a voucher – valid for 12 months and ‘our’ administration fee of £50 will be applied i.e., if ‘you’ paid £249, the voucher ‘we’ issue will be for £199.

If ‘you’ fail to attend ‘your’ training in the absence of bona-fide extenuating circumstances, ‘we’ will retain ‘your’ full booking fee.

Examples of circumstances not classed as ‘extenuating’ include (but are not limited to): failing to diarise ‘your’ training or ‘your’ tour, double booking ‘your’ diary, work commitments, holiday commitments, mechanical failure, missing/invalid documents, out-of-date MOT, weather, lateness, illness (including Covid), running out of fuel etc.

 ‘We’ retain absolute discretion to fairly apply the application of cancellation/amendment charges as ‘we’ see fit in compliance with ‘our’ terms and conditions. 

‘We’ reserve the right to cancel a Tour if there are less than 6 riders booked.

In such a case, ‘you’ will be offered an alternative tour or a refund of all monies paid.

If ‘your’ tour is cancelled by ‘us’ ‘we’ will not be liable for additional costs or losses incurred by ‘you’ due to the cancellation of the tour.

This includes, but is not limited to, the cost of hotel reservations or motorcycle hire.

Should ‘you’ cancel ‘your’ tour the following charges will be levied:

‘Your’ deposit is refundable up to 4 months prior to the tour start date. After this date the deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.

If ‘you’ provide ‘us’ with written notice of more than four weeks, but less than eight weeks of ‘your’ decision to cancel ‘your’ tour booking, cancellation charges of 50% of the total tour cost will apply. Less than four weeks’ notice, cancellation charges of 100% of the total tour cost will apply.

If cancellation charges are not paid on request, ‘we’ reserve the right to deduct the charges from ‘your’ original payment method.

Should ‘you’ for whatever reason decide to curtail ‘your’ participation in a tour during its duration, no refunds will be made by ‘us to ‘you’.
