Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) Element E Diagrams
When used correctly, this method of visual aids using the Compulsory Basic Training – Element E Diagrams is highly effective.
In my experience and opinion, visual aids are not used enough by motorcycle instructors. In the many years I have been training I have witnessed some shocking methods of instruction that look amateurish and are received with raised eyebrows from students.
I have seen instructors find a stone and try to draw previous road situations on the pavement. Have witnessed instructors trying to explain complex situations to students, who clearly did not understand what was being said.
I’ve seen trainers trying to get students to visualise a scenario by explaining verbally. These poor methods of delivery could have been easily rectified if the instructor would have used some visual aids.
A picture really does paint a thousand words
The Compulsory Basic Training – Element E Diagrams give a clear and concise visual meaning to every scenario. They paint a thousand words and leaves the student with a mental picture of what they may have done wrong and how to rectify it, or it gives clear guidelines on what is expected from them.
Diagrams alone will not improve riders mistakes but they will give a visual aid to both student and instructor. There are many ways to use diagrams, students can be asked to draw a route they intend to take to negotiate a certain hazard.
Or the instructor can use the diagram to show what a student did (right or wrong) and what they should do to rectify any mistakes. Diagrams are a source of education by explaining scenarios and having discussions to ascertain the students knowledge and learning level.

Home study is a vital part of development
Learner riders should be guided to some home study before and during their motorcycle training. Motorcycle Riders Hub helps learner riders visualise training techniques from the comfort of their own home.
