Please ensure that you have fully read through and understand the training program of your specific course on the website before you commit to booking a course.

We provide you with either a motorbike tank or a car wing to work on depending on your chosen area of repairs; therefore we will need to know your preferences. This however will only affect the metal work day as all the painting techniques taught are universal for all surface types.




We also provide you with a paint suit; therefore we will need to know your size, Medium, Large or X Large. As a guide, we usually use large and X Large.


Medium?         Large?          X Large?



It is very frustrating when a student books only to cancel just before the start date, therefore our payment terms must be strictly adhered to.

To secure a place we require a NONE refundable deposit of £250 incl VAT for the 5 day Prep, Repair & Paint course, the 4 day Airbrush and custom paint course and the 5 day Patch Repair and Welding course. For the Full 11 day course we require a £250 incl VAT NONE refundable deposit (per person) and the remainder of the balance MUST be paid 10 working days prior to the start date of the course.

We do not have time to chase people for payments, therefore if you are unable to meet these terms then please contact us as soon as possible!

Paying for your course:

All prices are inclusive of 20%VAT.  We except payments over the phone by debit card or bank transfer. If you decide to pay by transfer (which is preferable) our details are as follows:

Refund policy, terms and conditions.

This is for both mine and your peace of mind. My terms and condition for payments and refunds are as follows:

Paint My Ride only provides training for a maximum of four students per course so a strict refund policy must be adhered to.

  1. A non-refundable deposit must be received to secure a place on the course.

  2. The remaining full balance must be cleared ten working days prior to the start date of the course, unless agreed with Paint My Ride.

  3. Refunds will not be given if you do not complete the course by either leaving during the course or asked to leave the course due to misconduct. (Happened once in 15 years)

  4. Deposits are 100% non refundable, there are no exceptions to this rule

  5. The non refundable deposit is also NOT transferable to a different course.

A refund will be given...

  1. If Paint My Ride is unable to continue the training at any stage. However, refunds will only be given to the cost of training not received. This also includes deposits.

  1.    If Paint My Ride fails to cover subjects stated in the course content.

  2.    If a student develops an unforeseen illness that prevents him/her from attending the course at a later date.



Please bring with you, a note book and pen, you may find it useful to also bring a camera and a laptop or tablet, for documenting each stage of the course and to help with research on week two of the Full 11 day course.  Obviously you are coming into a working environment so please leave your best trainers at home!  Although we provide you with a paint suite, please bring your own overalls (these must be fire proof for the welding course) for all dirty work to protect your clothing and for your own personal safety. All equipment and health and safety gear will be provided for you.

Video or voice recording of any kind is strictly forbidden unless specific permission has been given by Mick himself



Food & Lunch:

We have a Sandwich van visit each day selling sandwiches, crisps and cakes. There is also as much tea/coffee as you can drink, along with plenty of biscuits and toast if you feel hungry. You are also very welcome to bring your own food if you prefer.


Travel and Start Time:

Please aim to be with us between 9am – 9:30am on the start day.


Car Painting Day (for the 11 day course only):

This is purely a car based day which takes place on the Friday immediately after the 11 day course which finishes, roughly around 2pm. This final day can run up to 21:00pm. Essential for students wishing to do more car based work. This is not part of the Full 11 day course. Please refer to our website for more details - £180 incl VAT


 We have written as much information on our website as we can, to outline the course for you without compromising ourselves.  If there is anything more you wish to know we are available for students day and night.  If you have any special requirements or conditions we need to be aware of, please inform us before the course starts.
