A full refund is available up to 14 days before class begins. After that time, only $145 of the price of class will be refunded. Once class begins, no refund will be available.

If a student wants to reschedule within the 14 days prior to their scheduled class, they will be charged an additional $150 fee. You must provide written or e-mail notification of your intent to cancel your class reservation no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled start time in order to receive full refund. If you fail to provide the required notice, or if you elect to drop from the class at any time during its presentation, you will not receive any refund. Occasionally, an instructor must council a student out of the class if he/she feels that the student is not meeting the objectives of the class and/or is a potential danger to themselves or other students. If you are asked to leave the class due to a disciplinary problem, you will not receive any refund. If you are asked to leave the class by one of the instructors for safety or performance concerns, you will not receive a refund. However, you will be able to re-enter another class at no charge once you complete a minimum of 3 hours of private lessons at $50 per hour. Additionally, Ray Price Harley-Davidson/Triumph, Inc. reserves the right to cancel any scheduled class for any reason. All efforts will be made to reschedule the class at a later date, or place any registered student in the next available opening.
