Explanation of your CBT/Mod Skills Day 1 course

The CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) course is designed to teach novices how to ride; however, there are some people who already know how to ride, such as those who have an expired CBT or have ridden abroad or have ridden a lot of Motocross. This CBT/Mod 1 course is designed for those people who are experienced riders needing to acquire a CBT certificate in order to go on to get a full licence. The course covers not only the CBT syllabus but also all the training to pass the Module 1 Motorcycle Test. The training will be done on a 500/600cc motorcycle and is suitable for anyone 19 years or older.
You don’t need to have passed your theory test in order to do this course, although you will need to have passed it before you can take your Module 1 test.
This course takes a full day and the cost is a flat rate of £175.00 including bike hire. 
If you’re not sure whether this is the right course for you we offer an Introductory Lesson during which you can ride a 500/600cc motorcycle to see how you get on. 
There are two things that can be done to prepare for a CBT/Mod Skills Day 1. Firstly, read the Highway Code and secondly, learn the information that we will send out to you as you will be asked questions.
The course will include all the manoeuvres required including the higher speed emergency stop and avoidance/swerve. These will be done at full speed as our training centres are large enough to practise this. You will not be expected to achieve the requisite speeds (50kph) immediately, and will be provided will full training in order to gradually develop your skills.

Things to bring with you:

  • Your UK photocard driving licence.
  • Suitable clothing for riding a motorcycle: hard-wearing jeans (not thin cotton trousers, tracksuit bottoms or leggings); sturdy footwear (not flimsy plimsolls or lightweight fashion shoes) – ideally which provide some ankle protection, such as work boots, strong walking boots or similar; glasses or contact lenses if needed.
  • Remember that you are going to be outside – so consider wearing layers if it is going to be cold.
  • You are welcome to bring your own riding gear, although we can provide jackets, helmets, gloves, waterproof trousers and hi-viz bibs
