Initial Basic Training

Since December 6th, 2010 anybody applying for their first rider permit (provisional licence), must complete a set course of initial basic training with a registered instructor.

This involves a sixteen hour course taken in four separate modules, each module dealing with specific training needs, to equip the new rider with the practical knowledge and ability to ride safely on the road.

The student must successfully complete each module before being allowed to progress to the next module. Each module can be taken when it suits the student.
