New course details – The CBT Plus
The compulsory Basic Training (CBT) Course is a government set syllabus designed to equip a new rider with a basic set of skills, including machine control, observation and road positioning, to get them safely started on two wheels. Once completed, the CBT allows you to ride a 50cc moped (at 16), or a 125cc geared or automatic motorcycle (at 17) with L-plates. The CBT can be completed in a single day, which includes classroom lessons, training off the road and a supervised road ride.
However, some riders feel that this is too short a course, with not enough time spent riding on the road with an instructor. Which is why Pit-Stop Training is now offering an extended two-day course – the CBT Plus. The first half of the course is based in the classroom and on a private, off-road tarmac training pad. You’ll spend the day building up your confidence and skills before retiring for the evening to relax.
The next morning you’ll take to the roads with an instructor and spend the full day putting your new skills to use and growing familiar with riding on the road. At the end of the day, if you and your instructor feel you’re ready for it, riders will be invited to try a larger motorcycle – like the novice friendly Suzuki SFV 650.
We are offering this at £200.00
Age restrictions may apply for larger motorcycles.
Please note that a CBT holder is restricted from riding on motorways, may not carry a passenger and has to display a L-plate.
