Motorbike test

#1
Can Standard learning credits be used to do the test?

ta in advance
 
#3
A WO (Regular) in my HQ tried to use it to qualify as a bike instructor and was turned down.
 
#4
Ive never heard of anyone successfully getting the bike licence against learning credits.
As there are courses available thru the system, I doubt you'd get it. I plagued my MTWO and eventually got mine.

Sorry, but it's pretty lame to think that past learning achievements can be used to pass a motorbike test......you really need to experience riding a bike for real, and pass the test properly. It's not a fcuking toy to be played with! Not wishing to put anybody down on their abilities, but the standard of car drivers these days is atrocious, and sodding dangerous!! you need to learn how to deal with these hazards. The bast@ard car drivers will fecking have you if you don't....

I'm fine. The bike (GSXR1thou) is trashed all down the right side. Silly bitch decided to come into my lane without seeing me. Took me clean off. Only had it 3 months, fecking gutted. can't bear to look out in the garage at the mo....

But i don't want to detract from the thread....apologies for misreading the initial subject. Go for anything free, or subsidised, that you can get. The test out here costs the earth, and if you can get anything deducted from the cost all the better. Hope all goes well for you. If you pass, ride safely, and look out for all the pillocks that profess to be car drivers mate.

Bolt Loose, funnily enough yesterday I smashed off a womans wing mirror for nearly doing the same thing to me!! Always seems to be women!!

I was told by a mate many moons ago, that he used his annual educational allowance to subsidise his CBT!

He got an officer to sign the duty form! Caused a bit of a storm in a teacup at the time as soon afterwards everyone tried it on! :D

I think it was borderline on the rules, but against the Ethos of the education allowance and cannot be used for that now!

Enhanced Learning Credits should be a different matter. You will have to find an accredited training Supplier and say you want to be a Civvy Despatch rider or something! :wink:

Best bet, ask the AEC or IERO!

And surf the bejaysus out of the suppliers on this link!

You haven't pointed out that he failed............!!
He passed his retest so I thought I'd give him the benefit.....

Chuzu,
If you have bikes in your unit, then if there is no one else to service or inspect and repair them, remembering an inpector can not repair and retest. Then you can get your bike test that way, i belive you are REME so maybe your Tiffy can help.
I have never heard anyone use the credits to do a course but theres always a first.
But and i mean but, do not go on a direct acces course a motor bike is a killing machince if not handled by the right person, i have been riding 9 years now and im still learning and you are only as safe as the other person on the road.

Ouch! Hope it isnt as bad when the dust settles.

At least it wasnt you. Bikes can be fixed.

F!*^@% "SMIDSYs".. First thing she said by any chance? :x :x

Taking this slightly off thread (apologies to the author!!). What do the experienced riders amongst you recommend as the best way to learn and achieve the bike licence?

I've just bought a vintage Vespa. Its a 150, and to legally ride it I have to pass the full bike test. I've had some experience on mopeds and 125 DT's/Other Vespas and am not particularly keen to put hundreds of pounds into someones pocket on a weeks course. I appreciate I need road experience, but the bike i intend to ride is less powerful than most modern 50's!!!! I'm not going to ride it illegally, so how would you recommend going about qualification???

Thanks,,,

Really? How did he wangle that?
I done mine through my resettlement. Many jobs require a full m/bike licence from courier to fast response paramedic etc. Throw in a few other licences for good measure and I felt it was a resettlement grant well spent.

After riding big bikes illegally in my teens (many years ago), it was great passing the DAS and moving straight onto the bigger beasts legally. I use mine as my main form of transport commuting 70 plus miles a day. Its a lot cheaper and faster than a car.
