Are you looking to get onto the roads and take your CBT training in Coventry?
You can expect your CBT - which stands for Compulsory Basic Training - to last up to 8 hours and all you need to complete it is a UK provisional licence and to be at least 16 years of age.
Although it is commonly referred to as the CBT test, you don’t have to worry about failing because the CBT is more like a day of instruction, with the end goal of making you a safe motorcycle or scooter rider.
Want to know more about the day itself? Here’s what a full CBT training entails.
In order to be eligible for a CBT and to get booked onto a CBT course, you must be a UK citizen, be at least 16-years-old, and hold a valid UK provisional licence or a full licence. You do not need to take the theory test before your CBT, and you don’t need any previous experience riding motorcycle or scooters.
And it’s not as hard as you might think? Because contrary to what most people believe, there is no actual test involved with your CBT as there is with a full motorcycle licence - it’s literally just a day of training that is intended to help you get to grips with the basic skills and knowledge required for motorcycle or scooter riding.
The school will provide the specialty riding equipment that you need for the day, such as a helmet, gloves and jacket. For your lower half you’ll want to wear the sturdiest pair of trousers you own, such as some thick jeans. You’ll want something equally sturdy on your feet, such as walking boots.
Depending upon the time of year and the weather you may also need to consider purchasing a waterproof jacket or even a set of cheap waterproof - and windproof - overalls. It’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast during the week before your CBT training just to be sure.
So what are you waiting for?! Book your CBT training and get out there on the open road!
As you don’t have your full bike licence, then you won’t be expected to have the full range of riding kit recommended for your Compulsory Basic Training. And there’s need to worry about not owning your own motorcycle or scooter for your CBT either, the school in Coventry will provide you with one you can use.
