Motorbike and Moped Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is required by most riders to validate the motorcycle entitlement on their licence (there are some exceptions for people with a full driving licence - depending upon when this was gained. See Licence Categories for further information).


This is normally a one day course, where you are taught the following, in accordance with the DVSA CBT syllabus:

  • Importance of using the right equipment and clothing, plus basic safety;
  • Introduction to your motorcycle and its' controls;
  • Basic machine maintenance and manual handling;
  • Riding on the outdoor "pad" - including:
    • Observations - including "blind-spot";
    • Starting and Stopping;
    • Slow riding;
    • Figures of 8 and slalom;
    • U-turns;
    • Controlled and emergency stops;
    • Normal braking and gear changing;
    • Right and left turns.
  •  Classroom based instruction including the system of motorcycle control.

Finally, you will be taken out on the road for a minimum of 2 hours, under the supervision of one of our trained instructors who gives advice and instruction via a radio.


Upon satisfactory completion of the course, you will be awareded a CBT Certificate, which is valid for 2 years.
