CBT What you need to know.

What CBT involves

Compulsory basic training (CBT) has 5 elements:

  • introduction and eyesight check
  • practical on-site training
  • practical on-site riding
  • practical on-road training
  • practical on-road riding

You’ll move from one element to the next when your trainer is happy you’ve:

  • learnt the theory
  • shown the practical skills to a safe basic level

The practical on-road riding part must last at least 2 hours.

How many people you’ll train with

You might train with other learners. There’s a maximum number of:

  • 4 learners per trainer for on-site elements
  • 2 learners per trainer for on-road elements

CBT certificate of completion

When you complete compulsory basic training (CBT) to at least the minimum standard, you’ll get a certificate of completion – also called a DL196.

This means you can ride a moped or motorbike up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW on the road with L plates for 2 years (L or D plates in Wales).

You must pass your full motorcycle test within 2 years or you’ll need to complete CBT again.

Replace your certificate

The certificate of completion is a legal document. It proves your right to ride as a provisional rider. The police may ask you to produce it.

Ask the approved training body you took the course with for a replacement if you lose your certificate. You can be charged up to £20 for this.
