MOTORCYCLE TRAINING

We can offer you everything from CBT to the Direct Access course.

We work with a leading Motorcycle training centre based in West London, with a very successful Trail Riding Center in Dorking, Surrey.

CBT Training Course

The key thing to remember is that a CBT training course is not a test, there are no formal exams, you are trained!

CBT training courses were introduced in December 1990 with the aim of improving road safety and reducing motorcycle accidents.

All learner motorcycle and learner moped riders must successfully complete a CBT course before riding on the road, the only exception being if you have passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001, then you are able to ride a 50cc moped restricted to 30 mph on that licence without having to obtain a CBT.

 

Standards

Our CBT course contains all the requirements laid down by the Department of Transport, and combines these with a whole range of additional information to ensure a complete understanding of basic motorcycling skills and forms the basis of safe and enjoyable motorcycling for life.

Our CBT courses are designed for the beginner. It is a training course and not a test, so don’t worry if you have never ridden a motorcycle/moped – this course is designed for YOU!

Once you have successfully completed your CBT course, you will be issued a DL196 (CBT) certificate which will allow you to ride up to 125cc (if you are 17 and over).

You must display L-plates and you may not carry passengers and the CBT certificate lasts for two years. If in that time you have not taken and passed a practical test you have to take another CBT course.
