Licences: Licences must be valid, and presented on the day of the grading, filled in correctly with the students name, address and the parents signature. A photo of the child must also be included, No licence means the student will be unable to grade or train in any of the classes.

Failing a Grading: If a student fails a grading the student will be re-entered for the next grading 10 weeks later at no extra cost.
