The course syllabus is dictated by the Driving Standards Agency and starts with a licence and eyesight check and a short discussion on the different types of helmet and clothing you should be wearing.Then we will look at the controls of the machine you will be riding and talking through some basic checks and maintenance. The next bit is where the fun starts as this is where you will start to ride the bike.
In this section there are several elements to cover as your skills improve, starting with moving off in a straight line and culminating in some simulated left and right turns in readiness for your road ride. Once this section has been completed there will be a pre-ride briefing during which we will discuss elements of the Highway Code. The final part is putting it all to practice on the road for a minimum of 2 hours.
CBT courses start at 8am and finish around 4pm. We run the course 7 days a week.
Although it is quite possible to complete all this in a day (as most do) it is only natural that some may not pick it up as quickly as others. If this happens to you on the day don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you have failed but simply that you will need to take some more training to complete the course.
For the CBT you may choose between doing it on an automatic scooter or a 125cc bike with clutch and gears. If you would like advice on which may be best for you then please give us a call. You may also use your own bike (please make sure to bring insurance and MOT documents and make sure it is legal!)
