What is the motorcycle IBT?
IBT is a mandatory training course that teaches basic riding skills to learner motorcyclists.
IBT for a small motorcycle category 'AM' or 'A1' - is a 16 hour course broken into four separate modules 1,2,3 and 4 which must be completed in sequence.
Completing IBT for the first time on a larger motorcycle in category 'A2' or 'A' is an 18 hour course and involves completing three modules 1,3 and 5. These modules are a mixture of theory and practical riding skills.
When you have completed an IBT module or the entire course, your instructor will record the details of your training in your logbook and issue you with a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.
