CBT is a legal requirement and you must complete CBT before riding a motorcycle, moped or scooter on the road in the UK as a learner. CBT certificates are valid for 2 years..
Introduction including a chat on helmets and safety clothing plus eyesight check. This is were you will meet your instructor and get a good idea of what your day is about.
Off road Training including machine controls, stand use, basic maintenance, wheeling the machine and starting/stopping the engine. So this is were the fun begins but the great bit come's next!
Off road training including pulling away and stopping, breaking, gear changing, observation, slow speed riding, u-turn, emergency stop and OSM PSL (left and right turn procedure), this is it your riding!
On road training here we cover thirteen subjects including road position, speed, anticipation, Highway Code and attitude. We are nearly on the road just got to cover some theory.
Finally we go out on road for two hours and will learn how to deal with roundabouts, junctions, traffic lights, gradients, bends, obstructions, pedestrian crossings and we will do another u-turn/emergency stop on road.
You are expected to be able to do everything in an element before proceeding to the next one!
you cant fail just have to take a little longer to reach a competent level.
Upon succesfull completion of your course you will be issued with a DL196(CBT certificate) which validates your provisional entitlement to ride a Motorcycle, Moped or Scooter on the road on your own!!! remember you must display L-Plates front and back of the machine, cannot carry passengers and must not use motorways. If you do not take and pass a full motorcycle test in either A, A1 or A2 categories within two years you will need to re do CBT to carry on riding on the road.
The only exception is a full category b(car licence) holders
If you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 you can ride a moped without completing compulsory basic training (CBT).
If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 February 2001, you must complete a CBT course to confirm your full moped licence. This means you won’t have to take CBT every 2 years to continue riding a moped.
If you already have a CBT certificate and then pass your car test, you can ride a moped without L plates without taking the full motorcycle test. In this case the CBT certificate for riding mopeds will last for as long as your car licence.
