CBT East London.  CBT stands for Compulsory Basic Training: CBT is not a test

If you want to get off the buses & tubes, ride a 50 cc or 125 cc motorbike or scooter

CBT is the course you need to get started.

Course length: CBT usually takes a full day to complete

The CBT is not a test it's a continual assessment.  If you meet the required standard in each element, you can proceed to the next until the course is completed, at which point your instructor will issue you with your CBT certificate (DL196).

Take the CBT course on:

A 50 cc or 125 cc machine, automatic scooter or geared motorbike,

CBT consists of 5 basic 'elements'

A.  A talk detailing the importance of the correct clothing and equipment.

B.  An introduction to the machine you want to ride.  You will be shown all the controls, discuss basic maintenance, practice using the stands, walking with the machine, operation of the brakes and how to use them safely, how to start and stop the engine.

C.  A series of practical 'on site' manoeuvre's designed to familiarise you with all the controls and help you establish competent handling.  Including, pulling away and stopping, figures of eight, emergency stops, u-turns and left and right turns.

D.  A road briefing to discuss the importance of the Highway Code, hazard perception and general road awareness.

E.  Finally, a road ride, throughout which you will be in contact with your instructor via radio communication.  With their guidance you will deal with most traffic situations such as T-junctions, roundabouts, traffic lights, crossings etc...

You're sure to have fun, make some new friends and wonder why you didn't do this before!

Please note:

Complete your CBT on a geared or automatic machine, your certificate covers you for both.

Geared & Automatic bike / scooter lessons : £40 per hour

These lessons are very popular and are conducted in the safety of central London's largest training area.  You get two hours of relaxed instruction on all the basics, how to pull away & stop, ride using slow control techniques and if you choose a geared machine you'll learn how to change up and down the gears.

You'll also get the hire of a bike and helmet included in your fee.

It's a great way to get started on an automatic or manual machine. 

If you have done a CBT on an automatic machine and would like to go on and take a restricted or full licence on a geared bike, or if you just want to swap from an automatic machine to a geared bike then why not try a 2 hour geared lesson? 

One to one lessons available on request, contact us now to find out more.
