UK's most comprehensive Compulsory Basic Training video guide

Learners Academy enhances Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) when utilised alongside practical motorcycle training and is for anyone intending to complete a CBT with a DVSA certified Approved Training Body (ATB) – more commonly known as a motorcycle training school. The Learners Academy is also a good novice rider revision tool and recommended as a starting point for ‘born-again bikers’ and those returning to riding after a break.

How does Learners Academy work?

The Learners Academy gives access to 7.5 hours of comprehensive Compulsory Basic Training education which helps learner riders to more effectively prepare for their instructor-led practical training course. The Learners Academy includes: instructional videos (classroom & practical), fact-sheets, MP3’s, knowledge tests, along with instructor top-tips and rider safety advice. Members gain a thorough understanding of Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) ahead of their practical CBT training.

The Learners Academy covers essential CBT preparation, whilst minimising novice rider stress and has been designed to perfectly compliment practical training. Learners Academy members report increased levels of confidence, skill, safety and enjoyment, plus are far less likely to have their CBT extended to a second day.
