TAKING YOUR CBT
You need to know that CBT’s may not always be completed in a single day.
Get ready for a long day as the CBT course should last for at least 5 to 8 hours. You will be taught elements in turn and when you are safe to go onto the next element then you progress through all the five stages. The CBT course is completely safety orientated so if you can’t complete all the stages on the day, then a rest and a return later is the best and safest way to progress.
If you are told you need further training to meet the required standard, make sure you understand:
- Why you need further training?
- What do you need to improve?
- Is this part of the price of the CBT?
- What is the cost of this training?
When you have reached the required standard, you’ll get a ‘certificate of completion’ (sometimes called a DL196). You can then ride a moped or motorcycle/scooter up to 125cc with a power output of up to 11kw on the road with L plates for up to 2 years. After 2 years you’ll need to complete a CBT again or stop riding.
