Most learner motorcycle and moped riders must pass compulsory basic training (CBT). You then have to pass your full motorcycle test within 2 years or you’ll have to take CBT again.
It can be completed on an automatic scooter or manual motorcycle. Fat Boy Motorcycle Training can provide you with either machine, along with a helmet, gloves and waterproof trousers, if required. However, if you have your own equipment, we would encourage you to use this, providing it complies with current safety standard and requirements.
What CBT Involves
Before arriving for your CBT you MUST have read and understood the Highway Code.
Compulsory basic training (CBT) has 5 elements:
- Element A – Introduction and eyesight check
- Element B – Practical on-site training
- Element C – Practical on-site riding
- Element D – Practical on-road training
- Element E – Practical on-road riding
You’ll move from one element to the next when your trainer is happy you have:
- Learnt the theory
- Shown the practical skills to a safe basic level
All training, except the practical on-road training, will be undertaken at our off road training facility and training environment. Training is provided on a maximum of 2 students to 1 instructor ratio
The CBT certificate (DL196) is issued upon safe and satisfactory completion of the elements listed above. This certificate is valid for 2 years and entitles you to ride a moped/ motorcycle up to 50cc if you are 16 years of age, and a motorcycle up to 125cc if you are 17 years and above.
