Element A Introduction:

  • The aims of the CBT course
  • The importance of having the right equipment and clothing
  • Read a vehicle registration plate 79.4mm in height from a distance of 20.5m

What can go wrong here and what can I do to prepare?

Don’t be late! It is a legal requirement for all CBT students to complete all parts of the course, this means you can’t simply “join in” if you’re late and the course has started.

The more the student knows the less the instructor must teach. If you have read the CBT information that was emailed out when the course was booked, then it will be possible to get through this element in less than 15 minutes. This is a significant advantage as it means the instructor will be able to devote more time to the important issue of teaching students to ride motorcycles and mopeds.

Two further points; if you wish to avoid disappointment make sure you have checked your eyesight before attending a CBT. If you can’t read a car number plate from a distance of 20.5m then you won’t be taking a CBT. Similarly, there is not really a lot the instructor can do if you don’t bring at least the photo card part of your driving licence, or suitable clothing and footwear.
