Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)



CBT Training at Shires Motorcycle Training Peterborough

Anyone wishing to ride on the road as a learner moped or motorcycle rider or is planning to take their full motorcycle test, must first complete a CBT. The CBT training we provide is based on a six hour lesson, broken down into four hours off-road training and a minimum of two hours on-road training.


The first step is to complete Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). 

During the first four hours of the CBT you will learn about the motorcycle and how to control it, as well as listening to talks on road safety and equipment. Once you and your instructor feel you are ready, you then move on to two hours of on-road tuition under close supervision. After this and if your instructor is confident of your ability to ride a motorbike or scooter unaccompanied, you will be awarded your CBT certificate (DL196).

This course is also to validate all moped entitlement for full car driving licence holders passing their car test after 1st February 2001.

If you wish to obtain your full licence then the next step is your Theory test you can view this information here
