Hours of Training
Riding a motorcycle is a fantastic hobby, but a lot of people also learn to ride a motorcycle for economic reasons. Generally speaking, they cost a lot less to purchase, tax, and insure than cars, and taking into account the cost of learning, offer a far cheaper route for getting you on the road. Parking is more accessible and less expensive and provides easier travel, as you can manoeuvre through traffic congestion a lot quicker than sitting in a car. These benefits also offer a greener mode of transport.
The above are all good arguments in favour of two wheels, but as a new or existing rider, you must recognise and take responsibility for your own actions and vulnerability on the road. Investing in good protective motorcycle clothing and a commitment to professional motorcycle training, are important factors for you to seriously consider.
Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is the starting point for all riders. It is the minimum standard required by the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency,) and will allow you to ride unaccompanied on the road. Having a CBT certificate is the first rung of the ladder. Just remember you are at your weakest without the experience needed to be a safe and skilled rider. Many learner riders are vulnerable in the early stages of riding on the road because of their lack of ability. Take your time and never rush.
Motorcycle Riders Hub is an online eLearning training and guidance platform for all riders. It helps riders at different stages in their training to understand how to improve, operate and control their motorcycle.
