What is a CBT?

CBT stands for Compulsory Basic Training, and it’s the minimum level of training you must complete to ride a motorcycle or scooter on the UK’s roads. There’s no test involved, which means you can’t fail and the whole process only takes a day. You need to be at least 16-years-old and on the day you’ll learn how to ride a motorcycle or scooter confidently and safely on the road.

Riding in London

Riding a motorcycle or scooter means you’ll be one of the smallest vehicles on the road. With that in mind, you’ll want to make yourself visible, so think about hi-vis clothing, bright, or reflective accessories.

Your positioning on the road will make a big difference, too. Stay away from the kerb, and position yourself in the middle of the lane. If you ride too close to the kerb, impatient drivers will see that as an invitation to squeeze past when perhaps they shouldn’t.

When it comes to your positioning on the road you’ll also want to think about the larger vehicles, such as vans, lorries and buses. These vehicles are long, and for the most part only have wing mirrors, which means you might not always be visible. To ensure you stay visible make sure you leave plenty of space behind the vehicle, and that you can always see at least one of the mirrors.

The most important piece of advice for riding in London is to be patient. London’s roads are full of people in a rush who don’t give much thought as to how their decisions will affect other road users around them. But if you remain patient and ride at your own pace you’ll arrive at work in good time. See our in-depth guide for more tips to riding your motorcycle in London.
