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.
