A CBT is often referred to as a Test, however a CBT is not a Test, it is Compulsory Basic Training. This training takes between 6-8 hours on one day and is the legal requirement set by the DVSA to ride up to a 125cc moped or motorcycle.
On the day of your training for your CBT bike licence you will arrive early in the morning, ready for your full day of training, which consists of 5 parts. The 5 parts of a CBT have to be taken in order and if the instructors believes that you do not meet the minimum requirement for one of the parts you may be asked to come back for some further training.
The first 4 parts of the day are taken off-road, so that the student can get used to riding a motorcycle in a safe environment. These consist of some very basic eye checks before moving onto practicing maneuvers such as turning, U-Turns and emergency stops.
The final part of your day will be a 2 hour road ride where you will be able to showcase your safe riding on the roads. The top tip here is to ensure that your knowledge of the highway code is of a good standard.
Following the completion of all 5 parts of the day you will be issued a CBT certificate, assuming that the instructor believes that you are safe to ride the roads, not endangering yourself or any other road user in and around the surrounding areas of Durham.
Once you have completed your CBT licence you will be able to ride up to a 125cc moped or motorcycle with a few restrictions. These are always riding with L plates, not carrying passengers and not going on the motorway.
If you are interested in pursuing getting these restrictions lifted then you will need to train for your full motorcycle licence. Depending on your age this will be either an A1 licence, A2 licence or full A licence.
Following your CBT licence you will need to take a theory test which is similar to the car licence theory test where you take a multiple choice and a hazard perception test. Following this you can take your full motorcycle training that typically takes between 5-7 days worth of training.
