What is Initial Basic Training (IBT) ?
Motorcyclists who receive their first learner permits after the 6 December 2010 are required, by law, to do IBT.
IBT is a 16 hour course, which comprises of 4 modules:
Module 1 (3 Hours): This is Classroom and Compound based training. It covers Personal Protective Equipment, Motorcycle Controls, Motorcycle Technical Checks, Use of Stands, Manual Movement of Motorcycle, Engine Starting/Stopping.
Module 2 (5 Hours): This is Compound based training. It covers Moving Off/Stopping, Braking, Gears, Slow Riding, Figure8/Slalom/U-Turn Manouvers, Rear Observation/Mirrors, Turning Left/Right, Emergency Braking.
Module 3 (2 Hours): This is Classroom and Compound based training. It covers Legal Requirements, Rules of Road, Being Seen, Road Surfaces, Positioning, Observation/Mirrors, Speed, Anticipation/Reaction, Weather Conditions.
Module 4 (6 Hours): This is Public Road based training. It covers Gradients, Junctions, Traffic Lights, Roundabouts, Safe Distance, Anticipation/Reaction, Pedestrian Crossings, Bends.
These modules must be done in the order outlined above. They can be done intensively over a 2 day period, or they can be spread out to suit the trainee’s schedule. However all 4 modules must be performed within a 2 year period. Also as each module lays the foundation for the next module, is advisable not to leave an excessive time lapse between completion of each module. It is only when this course is successfully completed that an individual may legally ride on a public road, unaccompanied by an IBT instructor.
