Important notes:

Definition of experience.

NONE (NOVICE) – total novice who has never been on a motorcycle, or only for a few minutes, or just an Introductory Lesson.
MINIMAL (INTERMEDIATE) – someone who has ridden on holiday, or only automatics, or has only done the CBT and nothing else; we would expect this person to be able to pull away, stop, start and change gear as a minimum.
SOME (EXPERIENCED) –  this is someone who has either done their CBT on a geared motorcycle and ridden regularly for six months or more, or has ridden off-road on scramblers for a long time.
LOTS (EXPERT) – (has valid CBT), this is someone who has ridden larger motorcycles before, either moto-cross or on a foreign licence. In other words, quite comfortable getting onto a larger motorcycle.
