CBT (Compulsory Basic Training Course)

This course is compulsory, by law, for all new motorcycle riders, with the exception of moped licence holders. It aims to teach machine control and bike craft, requiring riders to demonstrate competence in on-site and on-road situations.

The course does not consist of a test, but there are five basic modules to complete:


The cost of this course is £99 with equipment and bike hire, but is also included as part of the other courses that we offer.


When you have satisfied your trainer of your competence in a particular level, then you progress to the next.


There is no formal test, but completion of the course results in a CBT certificate.
