Learners (CBT) Academy - Key skills
Learners Academy ‘members’ should complete Rider Essentials, before moving on to the 10 ‘key motorcycle skills’ that are covered in this section. Working logically through Learners Academy ensures that riders are fully prepared for practical motorcycle instruction with their local training provider. Learners are advised to complete modules 1-20 before starting the Junction Guide.
Important practical motorcycle riding skills
This section of the Learners Academy is structured to compliment ‘Element C’ (practical on-site riding) of Compulsory Basic Training. Watching these videos helps novice riders to understand important skills such as using the gears, brakes and clutch. The safety position is explained, along with an overview of basic counter steering and emergency braking. Key CBT exercises are also explained.
