What Is Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)?


Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is for those people who want to ride a scooter / motorbike up to 125cc. Even for those people who want to progress onto the next stage and complete a Direct Access or A2 Restricted Licence, CBT is a must! The CBT test is a continual assessment which is spread over 5 elements:

  1. A. Introduction
  2. B. Practical on-site training
  3. C. Practical on-site riding
  4. D. Practical on-road training
  5. E. Practical on-road riding

Upon successful completion of your CBT course in North London, you will then be entitled to ride any moped, scooter or motorcycle up to 125cc. (Those 16 years of age will be restricted to 50cc until their 17th birthday).

Your CBT certificate is valid for only 2 years, and has some restrictions which will apply to most people:

If you do not pass your motorcycle theory test, and full practical test within 2 years, you will be required to complete another CBT if you wish to continue riding your scooter / moped / motorcycle.

  • You are not permitted to use motorways at any time
  • You must display 2 legally sized ‘L’ plates on your motorcycle / scooter at all times
  • You cannot carry pillion passengers

Some exceptions to the above restrictions may apply to certain people depending on the existing licence categories on your licence. For more information please seek further advise from the DVLA.
