advisable to keep yourself as cool as much as possible....in the driving centre ...pls expect to be drench with sweat towards the end of the session.
if you have some biking experience before
as for protective gears the centre have some requirement should you bring your own, but if you want to use the centre equidment, one thing for sure- your dog would not want to be near you for the next few weeks.
so get to know what the centre recommend and go from there.
but if you are a complete newbie ,i do advise you to wear a riding jacket for atleast the first few lesson and the ebrake
