Road Rider Session
Explanation of your Road Rider Session
This course is designed for those students taking a Novice or Intermediate course (and some Experienced courses). It typically follows on from the CBT course and is conducted on a 125cc motorcycle. This is a structured session of training which is almost entirely based on the road and will look in detail at all the components of road riding such as hill starts, roundabouts, left & right turns etc. Your instructor will work with you to help you deal with all traffic situations and to ride safely whilst keeping up with the flow of traffic.
The session lasts a 3.5 hours and costs £125.00 with bike hire or £115.00 without bike hire.
At the end of each session of post-CBT training your instructor will fill out your Student Record Card. This provides you with a record of your progress and gives you some things to think about as preparation for your next training session. It will also act as a ‘handshake’ for your next training session in the event you have a different instructor.
Typically most students will require either one or two Road Rider sessions. If, however, you are having difficulties then you may want to repeat this session, but this is highly unlikely as we will not have issued you with a CBT certificate unless we were confident that you could ride safely on the road.
If you have done your CBT on an automatic bike a two hour geared conversion course would need to be completed first.
Things to bring with you:
- Your UK photocard driving licence.
- Your CBT certificate.
- Suitable clothing for riding a motorcycle: hard-wearing jeans (not thin cotton trousers, tracksuit bottoms or leggings); sturdy footwear (not flimsy plimsolls or lightweight fashion shoes) – ideally which provide some ankle protection, such as work boots, strong walking boots or similar; glasses or contact lenses if needed.
- Remember that you are going to be outside – so consider wearing layers if it is going to be cold.
- You are welcome to bring your own riding gear, although we can provide jackets, helmets, gloves, waterproof trousers and hi-viz bibs.
