What Happens If I Miss My CBT Training?
Alex K · September 28, 2018
There could be many reasons that you’re late or miss your CBT Training and it’s important to know what happens in that scenario. If you know of something that may stop you attending your CBT Training you should let your instructor know as soon as possible - the more notice you give the more likely you are to be able to rearrange your CBT Training.
If you’re running late on the day you should try and call your instructor, the instructor will do their best to wait for you if you’re nearby but they can only hold off for a certain amount of time. They can’t do anything for you if you don’t let them know.
CBT instructors are only allowed to train 4 riders at a time and as such that makes each available slot very important. It’s like booking a flight, you’ve booked a specific time with the instructor to do your CBT like a seat on a plane, once the plane takes off/the training starts then it’s not possible to move that booking to a different flight/CBT session.
It’s important to know the the instructors themselves are not making this decision - the Driving Vehicles Standards Agency known as the DVSA sets the rules that the ATB (approved training body, which is the instructor) have to follow - legally they cannot allow riders to join once the course has started.
So what happens if you miss your CBT? Unfortunately in most cases it means that you won’t be able to move your CBT to a different day and you’d have to book back in for another day. This is why it’s so important to remember to be on time for your CBT.
