CBT

Compulsory Basic Training


CBT is a requirement for any learner motorcyclist

Overview

The CBT is your first step to riding a motorcycle on the road. It is also the first opportunity to meet our instructors and the start of your motorcycling experience with Maverick. Our students have found this to be the start of their riding career and the beginning of some life changing experiences. We believe that our CBT Course is the foundation to all future training and riding and we provide the best facilities in the area to get you started. Our Training is made up of 5 different elements and you must complete each one successfully before moving on to the next. CBT remains a requirement for any learner motorcyclist wishing to ride a moped (up to 50cc) at 16+ or a motorcycle (up to 125cc) at 17+ on the road with l-plates.

What will I learn

You will learn the highway code, get to know the motorcycle and its controls. Learn how to control and manoeuvre the motorcycle, including changing gear, right and left turns, figure of eight and the emergency stop. We will cover defensive riding, rear observational skills, correct road positioning and different Road Surfaces. On completion, you will ride under a variety of conditions dealing with negotiating roundabouts, junctions, bends, gradients, pedestrian crossings, traffic lights and obstructions. After successfully completing this course you will be issued with a CBT Certificate (form DL196) this allows you to ride unaccompanied on the road as a learner with “L” plates to practice for your test.
