Course Description

CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) is the starting point for all learner motorcyclists. CBT is not a test but a practical course of training you are required to complete, there is no theory test although you will be required to have a sound knowledge of the Highway Code. The CBT course includes five elements of which each element has to be completed satisfactorily in turn. You can only move on to each element in turn when your instructor is satisfied you have learnt the necessary theory and demonstrated the practical skills to a safe basic level. The course starts at 09:00 and finishes approximately 17:00 if you successfully complete all of the modules. Most people do get through CBT on their first attempt, but if you do not, we will re-book you for further training and assessment at no further cost.
