A CBT is required by anyone wishing to ride up to a moped or 125cc depending on age.
If you passed your car test before 1st February 2001 then you will automatically have a category P on your licence (moped licence) this will not however allow you to ride a 125cc motorcycle, you will still require a CBT certificate (DL196) to validate your category A entitlement.
If you passed your car test after 1st February 2001 then a CBT certificate (DL196) will validate your full category P licence.
Includes an introduction to the course contents and a comprehensive talk on protective equipment. The instructor will tell you what you legally have to wear and will then recommend the minimum amount of clothing you should wear whenever riding a moped or a motorcycle.
The instructor will now introduce you to the bike that you will be using for the course, and all of its controls. The instructor will cover aspects of basic maintenance including daily and weekly checks and starting the bike.
Designed to allow you to learn and gain confidence on the bike. You will be able to take as long as you need in the privacy of our large yard and not on a public car park. Basic control lessons will be covered, such as figure of 8`s and emergency stops, under the complete control of the instructor.
This element covers all the parts of motorcycling that new riders need to be aware of, including road surfaces, weather conditions, hazard awareness and of course the Highway Code. The instructor will also include hazard negotiation in a lot of detail. This will mean that the large majority of hazards you encounter on the highway will have been covered either on the yard or on the white board.
The final part of the CBT is a 2 hour ride on the road in constant radio contact with the instructor. The ratio between instructor and students will never exceed 1:2. The session will start off on quiet roads and will build in difficulty as you gain experience and confidence.
