What does the CBT involve?

When you arrive for your CBT Training near Paddington you will first head into the classroom, where your instructor will run through the basics of the highway code, and teach you the fundamentals of riding motorcycles on scooters.

Then you’ll head out to the off-road training area. Your instructor will show you how to push your bike around when it’s off the stand, and then you’ll get your first chance to ride your bike. You’ll be required to perform set maneuvers and ride set routes in a confident and safe manner. Once your instructor is happy you’ll be ready for the final part of the day.

The final part of the CBT will see you and another student head out onto the road for a two hour road ride. Once you return, you’ll receive your CBT pass certificate, which will remain valid for two years.

Should you ride a motorcycle or scooter?

When you book your CBT Training in Paddington, you’ll need to decide what type of bike you want to ride - the CBT school will be able to provide you with a scooter or motorcycle, so you don’t need to worry about buying your own before.

If you want a practical vehicle, then your best bet would be a scooter. Scooters have an automatic gearbox, which means they’re easy to ride and you don’t need to worry about selecting the right gear. Most scooters also have underseat storage, which in many cases doubles a a space to store your helmet when you’re not riding. Scooters are very popular with city riders, due to their practicality and ease of use..

If you want something a little more fun and dynamic, you’ll want to go for a fully manual motorcycle. Motorcycles take a bit more time to master, due to the addition of a clutch and gears, but once you have those mastered you’ll have much more control over the bike than you would a scooter.
