Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) On-road Extra diagrams

The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) syllabus is an in-depth training program for learner riders. There are a variety of lessons that need to be conducted where basic riding skills are taught, developed and assessed. However there are a few gaps in the CBT Course that do not fully prepare learner riders for all eventualities.

The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) On-road extra diagrams give a number of extra pictorial diagrams that help learner riders to develop further skills.

The visual aids give a view of certain scenarios that are encountered daily but do not feature in the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) syllabus.

For the best results

Throughout my time as a motorcycle trainer, the best results I had were when students were fully engaged. This is when they were shown diagrams and pictures to help them visualise what they were doing, what they needed to change and how they should position themselves approaching junctions, roundabouts and other hazards.

Real life situations shown in the form of diagrams, give the trainer a much better chance of giving accurate information that can’t be misinterpreted by the student.

Being able to give precise information with a methodical approach will add to the instructors armoury of education and delivery.

Some of the extra diagrams include:

  • The roundabout clock face and sign post guide
  • Cornering and how the bike responds to throttle and brake use
  • Different methods of approaching junctions
  • Where to find speed limits
  • When and how to use lifesavers and observations
  • How to join and leave dual carriageways

Every single diagram that is included in the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) on-road extra diagram package has a glossary of information. This helps the trainer to fully understand the meaning of each diagram. It also gives tips on what information can be given during practical training sessions.

Learner riders are advised to do some home study.
