CBT training in Milton Keynes – what you should know…

CBT training in Milton Keynes

What you should expect…

If the truth be told, we are not the place to come if you are expecting CBT training to be a walk in the park, leading up to a guaranteed CBT certificate at the end of the day. Compulsory Basic Training was introduced to reduce the casualty rate amongst young and inexperienced riders – if you are in either both of those categories, you may want to stop and consider for a moment what you are getting involved in.

CBT training in Milton Keynes with Rebel Dogg Riders, is a whole day of work!

During this day, we have to teach you to ride a motorcycle or scooter safely, to the required standards as demanded by the DVSA. This is not a very high standard, but we make no secret about the fact that we are very strict about who gets to go on the road. Everyone learns at different rates, so it is impossible to say until we get stuck in exactly who is going to have what challenges to overcome.

However: Be warned… if you do NOT drive a car, or no previous riding experience to CBT standard, this can be a very difficult day. It is essential that you arrive on the day with a working knowledge of the highway code and to have done some kind of studying on the subject of driving in the UK.

We expect you to take responsibility for this in advance of your training day, to help enable us to get you through the CBT in one day if possible. If you don’t make this effort, it might very well result in you having to do more training, spend more money and take longer to get on the road.

With your CBT training in Milton Keynes, you can expect to go through the entire CBT syllabus, as detailed by the DVSA. CBT Training should start at 8:30 to 9:00 am and not finish until 3:30 pm at the earliest, or 5:30 pm /6:00 pm if you are in a second group of students going on the road.

CBT training in Milton Keynes is £99.00 during the week and £120 at the weekends.

 

 

 

 

If you decide to do your CBT training elsewhere, these are just a few things to look out for to help you ensure that you are getting what you have paid for and should be taught!

  • Short road rides: Anything less than 2 hours on the road is ILLEGAL
  • There should be no more than 2 students on the road with 1 instructor (unless there is another instructor in tow)
  • Every student should be equipped with a working radio unit connecting with the instructor
  • Termination of road ride/course due to rain is nonsensical unless an Ark is spotted… surprising how often we hear this one!
  • Not being taught how to do emergency stops is totally unacceptable
  • Being shouted at, sworn at or abused in any way is totally unacceptable. You no more have to put up with bullying or unpleasant behaviour whilst learning to ride, than you would going shopping in Tesco, from the staff there.

There is only one thing in the way to your success… YOU!

If you never give up, you’ll get there in the end and pass the motorcycle test with flying colours. Our recent student Sam, pictured above, has just passed her module 2 motorcycle test with us, having had a bit of a struggle getting to grips with module 1, which was more of a test of her ability to control exam nerves than demonstrate any skill, which she had relentlessly trained and honed.

With some special tuition from our Fearless Training program, we were able to effectively deal with this issue in a short time. We are very proud of her achievement and quite frankly, Sam is a pleasure to ride with, as she has learned so much along the way. Fearless Training is unique to Rebel Dogg Riders, ask us about this special program if you think you will find any aspect of your motorcycle training overly stressful. We want you to pass the motorcycle test first time and have the tolls to make this possible!

I must find motorcycle training near me!

“So I need to find motorcycle training near me…”

 

One of the most common considerations with people wanting to learn to ride a motorcycle is location of the training school.. “I want to do my motorcycle training near me…”  is often heard when bookings are being discussed, especially with regard to the location of the test centres.

What is often overlooked is the fact that although there may be a certain convenience factor to finding a local training school, it is rare to find a combination of local school with local test centres and even those will not always be able t0 book every test at these locations.

Another trip to the test site!

 

Riding to and from test centres is very much a part of the training schedule for new riders. A combination of new and challenging situations will present themselves along the way and frankly… miles in the saddle is what it is all about.

Another thing to consider is that Module 1 tests are the same wherever you go! These are conducted off road at multi purpose test centres (MPTCs) or temporary off road sites. So it does not matter one bit where these are located, the test is the same wherever you go…

So the next time you think ” I need to find motorcycle training near me” – look around and see what the options are!

5 life lessons from motorcycle training…

motorcycle training in London and Milton Keynes

5 life lessons from motorcycle training…

  1. Everything is easier if you don’t get stressed
  2. Its OK to be a beginner and not be good at something.. you are learning!
  3. Be kind to yourself, being a perfectionist can drive progress away
  4. Be present and responsible – your life may depend on it
  5. Listen to the voices and learn to trust your instincts

Motorcycle training is a funny old business.. We have dedicated years of our lives to helping people achieve their dreams and enjoy the freedoms of motorcycling. To us, its an important journey and one where you often find yourself up against yourself, challenged in ways you may not have expected, put under pressures you are not used to.

Overcoming these challenges and pushing through to achieve the result is what makes motorcycle training a particularly rewarding achievement. It may be lost on many, but actually this activity is so not about mundane driving to work and back… you will learn about yourself, your limitations and how you can achieve beyond what you thought was possible. And not just to pass a short test with a bloke in a yellow jacket telling you to ride around some cones..this is for life. YOUR life…Have it!
