CBT Training in Tenby

If you’re looking to take motorcycle or scooter training then getting some quality CBT training in Tenby will be the first step to getting out on the road. 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, this isn’t strictly the case. In fact you don’t have to worry about failing at all, because the CBT is really just a day of instruction, with the end goal of making you a safe rider on the roads.

What does the CBT involve in Tenby?

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.

What do I need for my CBT Training?

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.

What Kind Of Equipment Will I Need?

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.

We also, strongly recommend that you check the weather a day or two before you’re planning to take your motorcycle or scooter CBT, because wind chill can make it especially cold on two wheels. Even a light rain can make a dramatic difference regardless of whether you’re riding a motorcycle or scooter on your CBT training day, so pack extra layers or some waterproofs if you need to.

When Do I Get my CBT certificate?

After you have completed your day of training in Tenby, your qualified instructor will issue you with your CBT certificate on-site. This has the condition that you are safe to ride on two wheels and are no danger to yourself or any other road users.

Following this you will be able to get insurance and a vehicle and ride away the same day solo.

What bike can I ride on a CBT?

Following, taking and succeeding in your CBT training you will be able to ride up to a 125cc motorcycle or moped, displaying L plates at all times and not proceeding onto motorways or carrying passengers.

Riding with L plates understandably isn’t the coolest statement you can make when riding on two wheels, however, there are a plethora of options of bikes that you can ride after taking your CBT training. If you want to ditch those L plates and carry passengers and get an unrestricted licence then pursue a full motorcycle licence.
