SO WHAT’S INVOLVED?
FIRST THE EYESIGHT TEST AND DOCUMENTATION CHECK, THEN A SAFETY TALK.
Before we begin you must be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres (approx. 67 feet). If you cannot do this, the course will not continue.
LEARNING THE CONTROLS OF THE BIKE.
After checking your eye sight and a brief safety talk we start with the basics of the bike. We begin by looking at the controls of the bike and what each lever and switch does. You will be asked a few questions about road signs, so please ensure you are familiar with the highway code.
LEARNING TO RIDE THE BIKE.
Theory out of the way – we get to have some fun. This is not done on the road, (that comes later). Within a safe controlled environment we allow you to gradually progress at a pace that you feel comfortable with.
We discuss general road safety and how, as a motorcyclist, we need to pay particular attention to certain areas.
RIDING ON THE ROADS.
After practicing within the safety of a traffic free environment, we will then venture out on the open road. Whilst in constant radio contact with one of our experienced instructors you will be shown how to relate the techniques that you learnt and practiced earlier to on the road situations.
When you’ve satisfactorily completed your CBT course you’ll be given a “Certificate of Completion of an Approved Training Course for Motor Vehicles in Categories A and AM” or DL196 for short.
CATEGORY A IS FOR MOTORCYCLES, AND CATEGORY AM IS FOR MOPEDS.
With the DL196 and your provisional licence you’re now licensed to ride on the road with L plates (D plates in Wales) and to practice for your motorcycle or moped test.
The certificate is valid for 2 years. If you don’t pass both your theory and practical tests within that time you will have to take your CBT again.
