CBT Course

Compulsory basic training (CBT) is a course you usually have to take before you ride a moped or motorcycle on the road.

Maximum 2 students on each course.

Course cost £175

Fee includes: Bike hire, fuel and insurance

We currently offer CBT training for age 16 on our 50cc automatic scooter or age 17+ on our 125cc geared motorcycle.
