The Compulsory Basic Training course, or CBT as it’s known, is designed to get you off to the right start on your motorcycling career, and helps prepare you for the practical motorcycle test. You don’t need to take a theory test before completing a CBT. Our course has a maximum of two students to one instructor (other schools offer 3:1 or even 4:1 which drastically reduces the quality & safety of the tuition).
If you’ve never ridden a motorbike or scooter before (especially clutch & gears) you may wish to consider a New Rider Course. These are 60 or 90 minute sessions on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor. There is no pressure from other learners and no obligation to take on further training if you discover that biking isn’t for you.
The course will take at least one full day and consists of five modules. Download a typical CBT timetable here if you are interested in an in-depth description of the course. Don’t worry if your training requires extra days. Everyone is different and we will be more than happy to help you through to completion. There is a reduced charged for additional days required to complete your training if you are unable to finish it in one day.
