What is a CBT Test?
CBT stands for Compulsory Basic Training and it is the first step of getting on two wheels. It consists of a days of training, usually around 6-8hours and you will be taken through everything you need to safely ride on the road.
Do I need any Experience to do a CBT Test?
You don't need any motorcycle experience but we do ask that you are able to ride an adult-sized bicycle. This is because it gives you the basic balance and skill set to get through your day's training.
Can I Fail A CBT?
Technically a CBT isn't a test so you cannot fail, that being said if the instructor feels you are unable to demonstrate the things you have learnt throughout the course they may end your training early and ask you to book a second day's training. If you’re worried about this then you can always book our Peace of Mind Policy which when purchased, means that should you need a second day's of training, we will cover the cost. This can save you over £100!
It should be noted that this policy does not cover a lack of highway code knowledge (so make sure you read up), wearing incorrect gear (double-check your email for requirements) and turning up late.
What Bike Can I Ride on A CBT?
Depending on your age, you will be able to ride with 50cc or 125cc machine after you have your CBT licence. If you’re unsure on what machine you can ride then have a gander through our blog on Licences and Laws.There are a whole host of awesome motorcycles out there on the market, we always recommend heading out to some dealerships to swing your leg over and test ride for yourself.
