CBT

CBT (compulsory Basic Training) was first introduced 1st December 1990 in an effort to reduce the number of bike accidents. This is the first step to getting on the road. The CBT certificate (DL196) validates your provisional entitlement on your licence and is valid for 2 years. At 16 years old your category P is active, which means you can ride a 50 cc moped restricted to 31 mph with L plates, (you can apply for your licence 3 months before your 16th birthday). At 17 years old your category A becomes live and you can ride up to 125 cc motorcycle with L plates. If you are intending to continue your training up to taking a practical test we recommend you take your CBT on a 125 cc manual bike. The course itself is set down by law and broken down into 5 key elements, A to E. Each element must be completed before moving onto the next. It?s not a test, but you do have to show competence in all elements to earn your certificate.
