Scheme aims to improve CBT training

09.00 | 12 February 2019 | | 1 comment

A new scheme is offering young powered two wheeler riders across the east of England the chance to take an enhanced CBT free-of-charge.

Ridefree is available to 16-24 year-olds and aims to help the Government look at how to deliver motorcycle training in the future.

The scheme, which is approved by the DVSA, has been developed Road Safety Analysis and Driving Research in partnership with Highways England.

It is available to young riders in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk.

CBT is a training course learner riders must complete before taking to the road. The training is designed to ensure riders are safe while they practice for their full moped or motorcycle test.

Under the Ridefree scheme, young riders will be spared the cost of the training – in return for contributing to the research project.

Participants first complete the training and then answer questions about how the course went, and motorcycling in general. Those who complete it will then be legally entitled to ride on the road.

For more information, contact the Ridefree team via email or on 01295 731810.

    It certainly needs something. Like at least some 20 hours or more of tuition to help make motorcyclists and scooter riders safer on our roads. Training progressively from urban environment to rural roads and then maybe some riding in the darker periods.
