Compulsory Basic Training, or C.B.T is the course you need to complete to be able to ride a motorbike legally on the road.
The cost of a C.B.T is £95, this will cover bike hire and all equipment.
The C.B.T is a one day course that will cover all aspects of motorcycling including safety, equipment, maintenance, control and road skills.
- The training starts at our off-road training area. Here you will learn how to ride, whether you have any experience or not.
- Then our instructor will cover all the aspects of motorcycling including safety, equipment, maintenance, control and road skills.
- Then you will progress on to the road when the instructor is happy with your riding.
- If the instructor is happy with you riding on the road and says you've passed, you will be issued with your C.B.T certificate.
A C.B.T certificate allows you to ride a 50cc motorcycle (16 years old) or a 125cc motorcycle (17 years old and older).
Your C.B.T is valid for two years. After the two years you can come back and renew your C.B.T or you can progress on to a Direct Access course.
Please Note - If you are caught riding without C.B.T, you are causing a multitude of offences including riding with no insurance, and you could risk a £200 fine and 6 points on your licence. Other risks include, getting your bike taken off you and having your insurance blacklisted for up to 5 years.
