25 year old female from N. Ireland

#1 Post by Karrie994 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 11:22 pm

Hi, I have recently just joined :) .

As above I'm from northern Ireland and I'm 25. I have a keen interest in bikes, been traveling about with my dad for few years and now decided to take the plunge and get my bike license :).

I understand I have to complete my CBT and my theory test. Followed by a practical test.Due to the holidays at the month I won't be booking this until 15th July.

I have found a instructor, I was justing what does the CBT actually entail? Alsomwhat can I expect to be doing in my lessons?

I would greatly appreciate any information or guidance that may help me over the next few months :)

[*]Karrie :)

Hello and welcome!
CBT is the complete basics of motorcycle riding and road craft. If by halfway through the day the instructor things you are doing well, you will go out on a road ride for a few hours or so. All going well, you'll get your certificate and can ride around on your own L plates!

Having a look at the various CBT training videos on YouTube helped me understand what was going to be going on during the day.
