We have provided you with a short guide to help you prepare efficiently and to ensure you have everything you need to gain the most out of your CBT training.
You may have questions before you start your training such as:
CBT training (Compulsory Basic Training) is required as the first step for new riders before getting their motorbike licence and being on the road. CBT training occurs over the course of a day and covers basic training and road safety as well as some elements of theory.
This training allows you to ride a bike that is up to 125cc on the road, with an L plate for 2 years before the license expires, at which point you’ll either need to take a full bike test or renew your CBT for another 2 years in order for you to continue riding.
It’s a quick and easy process that can be completed in a day, however, there are some things you can do to prepare in order to make the day run a bit more smoothly. Here are some tips:
Before coming to do your CBT training, you may also want to think about clothing. If it’s cold, then it will be colder on a motorcycle. If it’s hot, it will still feel colder once you get on the bike. CBT centres will provide you with a helmet, gloves and a high visibility jacket when motorbike training but will not provide you with clothing.
You do not necessarily need to know a lot of information when motorbike training like you would when learning how to drive a car, however, knowing some information before your lesson could help you out.
Revising the highway code and basic theory of riding a motorcycle is always a good start in your CBT training as it shows your instructor that you have some knowledge on what you are doing and may help the training session run smoother and quicker.
You will not be asked to do a theory test for your motorbike training however you will be asked to do the following:
You will also be assessed on your knowledge of the highway code. Knowing and understanding road rules and traffic signals are significant in road safety and completing your CBT training.
