Whether you are experienced or not, this is the first step everyone must take to obtaining a full motorcycle licence or to ride 50cc plus machines on the road with ‘L’ plates.
The course syllabus includes:
Choosing the correct helmet and safety clothing
Knowing the machine and it’s controls
Basic daily/weekly machine safety checks
Manual handling and using the stands
How to pull away and stop using the brakes safely
How to use the gears (if appropriate)
Slow speed control
Practice simulated left and right turns
Assuming the above is completed to a safe standard there will be a full road safety briefing and a minimum two-hour road ride, at the conclusion of which a certificate of completion (DL196) will be issued to those who have demonstrated good basic machine control and road awareness.
Remember, CBT is not a test. It’s an assessment of your basic safety. Throughout the course you will receive instruction to achieve a safe standard of riding. We will provide you with an extra visit* to complete the course if we recommend extra training. So don’t worry we’ll make it as pleasant and enyoyable as we can for you.
