The Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) is urging its members and, indeed anyone connected with the Industry, to read and complete a survey that could have a major impact Compulsory Basic Training (CBT).

More can be found on the subject in Mark Williams’ Next Generation column on page 23 of the current April issue of Motorcycle Trader & Directory.

Many MCIA members have asked what policy/comments the Association has on the CBT review, and it has a guidance document available to help make it easier for interested parties to complete the online consultation.

Said the MCIA; “We would urge as many of you as possible to complete this consultation. Many anti-PTW organisations will also submit their responses and their views will carry as much weight as yours – there is strength in numbers and issues such as the validity period of a CBT certificate (currently two years, but some wish to see this shortened to one year) are very important to us all. 190,000 CBT certificates are sold each year so any changes made will effect a large number of new and existing riders.”

CLICK HERE to complete the survey – the cut-off date is Tuesday 21st April 2015.
