What Will I Learn During a CBT Test in Solihull?
A CBT will last up to 8 hours and during the training day you will learn everything you need to know to be able to ride an automatic scooter or manual motorbike.
This includes the basics of controlling and maneuvering a bike, maintenance, parking and also riding on different types of roads alongside other traffic.
You will need to understand The Highway Code before your training but your instructor will go through some motorbike specific road riding theory to explain how to ride safely on the road before you then head out for practice.
This road ride happens at the end of the training day and you will get 2 hours of riding time where you will practice everything you’ve learnt to build up your riding confidence.
Your instructor follows behind you during this time to check you are safely riding and tells you which turning to take and where to ride via an earpiece.
Provided you show that you are competent at riding you will get a certificate to take home with you saying you have ‘passed’ your CBT test.
