Compulsory Basic Training

1st Class Motorcycle Training CBT Information…

The CBT is a basic training course required by law to validate all provisional licences ( i.e. EVERYONE riding on L – Plates ).



This course is required by law for anyone wishing to ride a moped or motorcycle on the road. At 16 years old you can only ride a 49cc moped and at 17 years old or above you can ride up to a 125cc motorcycle.
The CBT only allows you to ride under the provisional conditions of your driving licence, this means you will need to have L-Plates displayed, won’t be allowed to carry a passenger, travel on motorways or ride anything larger than a 125cc machine.

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

The CBT course can be booked through ourselves and courses are run every weekend throughout the year, we also run the courses on selected weekdays which do vary each week.

The course takes place on our unique off road training area which is by far the largest in the south west giving you the best opportunity to gain full control of your motorcycle before progressing out onto the road.

The price for this course is £79 using your own machine or £99 using one of our machines. On your training day we will not charge you an extra damage waiver fee.

You can choose to take you’re CBT course on a 2:1 ratio over a full day instead of the standard CBT course (4:1 ratio), the cost for this is £125 and needs to be requested at the time of booking. (CBT certificates will still only be issued if all the required elements are covered and a satisfactory standard is met).(Times do vary for the weekday courses.)

Upon successful completion of the above elements, you will be issued with your CBT certificate (DL 196).This is a legal document which validates the relevant entitlements on your driving licence.
Should any student not reach the required compulsory safety standard to obtain a CBT, the student will be given an opportunity to re-attend a further CBT course;  within four weeks of the original CBT course on a date as agreed with 1st Class at a reduced cost if booked at the time of the original CBT course.
