1. Even though a person does not need any riding experience to take the compulsory basic training test, familiarizing yourself with the Highway Code is definitely advantageous.

2. The theory of CBT is essentially basic and is worth remembering to clear the practical tests. This is of course in the scenario where you would want to complete the CBT test in one go.

3. Obtaining full license will also give you freedom from riding with L plates forever. It also makes motorcycle insurance cheap.

4. Make sure that you book your CBT test at a DSA approved training body and look out for training centre that offers:
a. Flexible training, so that you can go through each element at your own convenient pace.
b. Riding gear as you’d probably won’t have your own motorcycle gloves and helmet at this point
c. A guaranteed pass

5. CBT was introduced to control the alarming number of accidents that new and old riders were contributing to. Since motorcycling is much more of an art than driving a car, training is essential for your and other’s safety. It also lets you gain on your riding skills, thereby making the whole task of riding a bike intensely relaxed, without the worry of losing control.

Motorcycle training educates motorcycle riders the skills for riding on roads. It is the equivalent of driver's education for car drivers. North London Motorcycle Training is based at Edgware, and can offer you tuition from CBT to Advanced Rider Training. Established since 1985, it is committed to make your training fun, safe and enjoyable.

CBT - Do you know enough?

CBT is short for Compulsory Basic Training. Unlike the common perception, it is not a test. For a person willing to get rid of commuting in the tubes and buses, a personal 50 cc scooter or 125 cc motorbike is definitely a good option.

To start riding a scooter, moped or motorbike, CBT is the course you need to get certification in. Considered a continual assessment, the course length usually takes a full day to complete. A person meeting all the standard requirements of each element proceeds to next until the course is completed, at which point the CBT instructor issues the candidate’s CBT certificate (DL196).

You can take the CBT course on a 50 cc or 125 cc automatic scooter or geared motorbike. It can either be of your own or you can hire one from where you are doing the training. At North London Motorcycle Training, only modern and well maintained bikes. Both male and female instructors work with this institute, providing the highest standard of DSA approved training.

To take part in CBT you need to be over 16, in possession of a valid full or provisional U.K. license, possess a decent knowledge of the Highway Code and must have good eyesight to be able to read car number plates over a distance of 20.6 meters. Good understanding of English is compulsory for anyone appearing for the CBT.

About CBT
Compulsory Basic Training was launched on 1 December 1990, making it compulsory for all new provisional licence holders of automatic scooters, geared motorbikes or plain mopeds to complete it before riding on the road. In CBT, exception has been given to those who have passed a comprehensive moped test since December 1990.

Holders of full car licence who have qualified after 1 February 2001 are also required to complete a CBT course before riding a two wheeler on the road. Contrary to a popular belief, the compulsory basic Training is not an exam, and there is no test. It is only a course of training that an individual is required to complete satisfactorily before riding a moped, scooter or motorbike. This basic training has proved to be a great success in achieving the aim it was designed for – improving road safety and lessened accidents involving two wheelers’ riders.

CBT requires a provisional licence holder to undergo the course of on-site and on-road training. On the completition of this course, they are issued a 'Certificate of Completion of an Approved Training Course' (DL196). This validates the provisional entitlement on their license and permits that to on their vehicle on the road, while displaying an ‘L’ on their number plate.

Motorcycle training institute educate motorcycle riders the skills for riding on roads. It is the equivalent of driver's education for car drivers. Training beyond basic qualification and licensing is available to those whose duty includes motorcycle riding, such as police, and additional rider courses are offered for street riding refreshers, sport riding, off-road techniques, and developing competitive skills for the motorcycle racetrack.
