Compulsory Basic Training Dundee (CBT)
Compulsory Basic Training is the course that everyone has to complete before they can legally ride on the road.
The minimum age for sitting a CBT is 16 years. At 16 years the biggest bike you can ride is a 50cc machine. At 17+ years of age you can ride up to 125cc with a CBT.
The CBT usually takes a day to complete. It has five separate elements to it and involves continuous assessment rather than a test. This means that once you have mastered the first elements you will then progress to the next, which carries on throughout the day until you have completed all of the elements.
On successful completion a certificate is issued and is valid for 2 years. This certificate allows you to legally ride up to a 125cc motorbike on the road.
If you need more training an extra half day is given at no extra cost.
If you want to go further and go for your full motorcycle licence the CBT certificate is required for the Module 1 & 2 training as well as the tests. Depending on your age, you can go on to gain your full motorcycle licence and legally ride any size of bike on the road. The age restrictions which are defined by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) can be seen on the Restricted Access and Progressive Access pages. Details of the lessons and tests required for your full motorcycle licence can be found on the DAS page.
