Where is my nearest CBT test site in Hinckley?
Hinckley is lucky enough to have 14 CBT test centres within a 30-mile radius, the 5 closest being Coventry, Leicester, Perry Barr, Burton Upon-Trent and Kings Heath. All of these test sites offer motorcycle hire for your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) but some of these do require you to bring your own gear, so make sure to check the facilities offered at the CBT test site you choose.
Are you someone who needs a caffeine kick in the morning? Can’t think without a cup of tea in hand? Perry Barr has its own on-site cafe to enjoy during your break on your CBT test.
How soon can I book my CBT test in Hinckley?
How soon you can book on to a CBT test will vary between different sites across different times of the year. You can usually get booked on to a test far more quickly in the winter months, however, as soon as the sun comes out the bikers are inspired to start their two-wheeled education. This is when spots can be taken up fast, as the maximum number to each session is four riders.
CBT test sites in Hinckley, such as Perry Bar and Kings Heath, offer ‘Instant Booking’ which allows students to confirm a booking at checkout. CBT test sites without this feature require confirmation from your instructor which can take extra time. Look out for the lightning icon when booking your test if you want to benefit from ‘Instant Booking’.
Can I ride an automatic scooter in my CBT test in Hinckley?
Yes, you can achieve your CBT certificate on an automatic scooter. However, if you plan to move on to manual motorcycles, we strongly recommend you use your CBT as an opportunity to learn riding a geared motorcycle under supervision. If you still want to take your CBT test on an automatic, you may want to consider a Gear Conversion Course afterwards.
