What is A CBT Test?
CBT or Compulsory Basic Training is the first stage of getting onto a motorcycle. Whether you’re wanting to go on to do your full license or you’re just happy on a 50-125cc machine you will need to complete CBT training before you can do so. The test takes place over the course of a day and will usually last around 6-8hours. You will cover everything you need to know to get you safely on the road, from theory to handling and manoeuvres. Your instructor will take you through each stage to give you the confidence you need.
