Compulsory Basic Training - CBT
CBT is a course of tuition and assessment designed to get you off to a safe start. It is not a test, but it must be completed before you are allowed to ride on the road with L plates on a bike or scooter. It is normally completed in one day but it can be spread over a longer period if extra time is required to reach an acceptable standard.
You will learn the theory in our comfortable classroom and the practical skills on our on-site training ground before we take you out on the road for a couple of hours. As long as you have studied the Highway Code and are riding to an acceptable standard by the end, you will receive the CBT Certificate (DL196) that validates your licence and allows you to ride on your own under learner restrictions.
Your CBT Certificate is valid for two years. You should aim to pass your test for a full bike licence before it expires, otherwise you would have to do CBT again.
