Compulsory basic training or C.B.T is the first step into motorcycling introduced in December 1990 by the DVSA. The C.B.T is a legal requirement for anyone wishing to ride on the public road. The course is designed to make a participant safe and competent to ride a 50cc / 125cc machine unaccompanied on L-plates. The CBT is  not just a certificate for turning up you must reach the required standard to be issued a CBT so your training many take more than just a day. It is advisable that the Highway code is studied before the commencement of the course.
