How Long Is Training for a CBT and What Does It Involve?

Taking a CBT test in Portsmouth typically takes between 6-8 hours. Despite often being referred to as a test, there is in fact no ‘test’ involved, just training and monitoring. At the end of the day if you have trained safely you will be issued with your CBT certificate by your qualified instructor.

The day itself will consist of 5 parts, 4 of these will be off-road. The final part of the day will be road riding where your instructor will monitor you riding safely.

The five parts of CBT training consist of the following parts, in sequence:

Once your trainer is satisfied that you’ve understood the theory and shown the needed practical skills for each section, you continue onto the next section. Then, having completed all five, you’ll receive your CBT certificate to safely and legally ride around Portsmouth. If the instructor feels you were not at a satisfactory level for any of the 5 training sections, you’ll need to book further training on another day.
