In 1990, the Government introduced the CBT to reduce the numbers of incidents involving novice scooter and motorcycle riders. It equips you with basic skills required for use of our roads. It has been highly successful; motorcycling as a whole, is far safer.

The CBT is not an exam or test; it is a training course consisting of a number of theoretical and practical elements including a two-hour, instructor supervised road ride. Completion will see you issued with a CBT certificate (DL196). This entitles you to the following:

  • 16 years of age you may ride a 50cc moped or scooter.
  • 17 years of age or above you may ride a 125cc motorcycle or scooter.

However, the following restrictions will apply:

  • Visible L-plates front and rear at all times
  • No motorway usage
  • No passengers
  • Revalidation of CBT certificate compulsory every two years unless you go on to pass the A2 or DAS course

Course content, fees and kit loan as follows:

  • £125 per person
  • RAKtrain's own pre-course material aimed to make your day even more constructive
  • Latest ECE approved motorcycle helmet
  • CE approved armoured waterproof jacket and waterproof trousers
  • Protective gloves
  • Scooter/geared motorbike
  • Pre-road training on RAKtrain's own road system thoroughly preparing you as no other school can
  • Official DSA course completion certificate

The training day commences at 08.30hrs, generally finishing at 16.45hrs.
