VideoBiker review - Tom Warsop
Name: Tom Warsop
Job: Marketing Manager (Devitt Insurance)
Rides: Not known
Type of riding: Weekend rider
VideoBiker course: Learners Academy
Latest motorcycle training: Compulsory Basic Training
I accepted an invitation to complete Compulsory Basic Training with RMT Motorcycle Training in the West Midlands. To maximise preparation, my instructor (Simon Hayes) gave me access to the VideoBiker Learners Academy a few weeks prior to starting my practical training. The combination of digital learning and practical training gave me the ideal opportunity to better understand what is involved with learning to ride a motorcycle and this was of particular use to me as I work within the industry, for Devitt Motorcycle Insurance.
Getting on a motorcycle for the first time was enjoyable, but certain elements were quite tricky and felt quite unfamiliar. I would definitely go back to VideoBiker if I was to undertake further training, as I felt it really prepared me for what was going to happen and it also helped me to understand some of the basics that I was going to learn on the day, so that when I heard new things on my CBT training day, it wasn’t news to me and they felt familiar already.
