 How does IBT Progressive access apply to me?

Progressive access is going from A1 to A2, or A2 to A or moving between categories. This is only possible after you have successfully completed a Motorcycle test in the particular category that applies to you. Then following that after two years you reapply for your learners permit to be able to do progressive access to the next and higher category of motorcycle which is 11 hours.

A1 > A2 11 hours
A2 > A   11 hours

 

IBT is a 16 hour course broken into four separate modules to be completed in sequence. These modules are a mixture of theory and practical riding skills.

When you have completed your IBT course, Jenkins School of Motoring will record the details of your training in your logbook and issue you with a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.

Jenkins School of Motoring will supply you with Personal protective equipment (PPE) and Motorbikes for IBT training. When we start IBT training you will start off on a Suzuki GN125 to learn balance and motorcycle control. Once you have successfully completed that training, you will progress on to a higher powered motorcycle - Suzuki Bandit 600, (except those applying for A2 category)
