What Happens During a CBT Test
A CBT is roughly 6- 8 hours long depending on how much experience you and the others in your class take to master each element.
The training day can be broken down into 5 different sections, also known as elements. If at any point your instructor feels you are unsafe to progress onto the next element they will ask you to come back for a second day of training. If this happens to you don’t worry, it can just take some people longer to learn how to control a motorbike/scooter.
If you’re concerned you might need a second day of training and worry about paying for it, we would recommend our Peace of Mind Policy. For only £29.99 we will cover the cost of a second day should you need it, saving you around £130 or more!
Please note terms and conditions apply, read more information on the Peace of Mind Policy here.
