Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is helpful to improve your driving skill, however many people choose to take additional lessons to pass their test. A qualified instructor will be able to advise you on the specific requirements for taking the practical test.
CBT Courses and Training
In most circumstances, CBT courses are provided to two individuals at the same time. It is however possible to inquire about independent lessons if you feel it would be of benefit to you or if you are nervous about taking the test.
In order to start training, you should have the necessary safety clothing for a motorcycle. If you do not already have these, you can inquire with the course provider, some instruction centers have these available for lessons. The safety gear necessary includes a helmet, gloves, sturdy boots, and a weatherproof jacket.
