What is a CBT?

Compulsory basic training (CBT) is a course you usually have to take before you ride a moped or motorcycle on the road. The training makes sure you can ride safely on your own while you practice for your full moped or motorcycle test.

CBT is not a test that you pass or fail. After you’ve completed CBT, you can ride a:

moped if you’re 16 or over

motorcycle up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW if you’re 17 or over

You must use L plates (L or D plates in Wales).




How long does CBT training take?

A CBT course can normally be completed in a day but may take longer if you need more time to master the control of the motorcycle or moped. Knowing how to ride a bicycle will really help, so if you have not ridden one for a while it's a good thing to do before you take your CBT


What happens after I have taken my CBT course?

You’ll get a ‘certificate of completion’ (sometimes called a ‘DL196’) when you successfully complete the course. You can then ride a moped or motorcycle up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW on the road with L plates (L or D plates in Wales).


How long is a CBT certificate valid for?

You must pass your full moped or motorcycle test within 2 years, or you have to either take CBT again or stop riding.
