Compulsory Basic Training road-ride video guides

The ‘Road Rides’ section contains essential CBT tips on what is required during ‘Element A’ (practical on-road training). This part of compulsory basic training involves a varied two hour road-ride, during which, riders will encounter a wide range of roads, junctions and traffic scenarios. This section of the Learners Academy offers three instructor narrated road rides (urban, city and rural).
