What will happen during my motorcycle training?
Here we have outlined everything that you would expect whilst undertaking any motorcycle training with us.
All on-site training is done on our DVSA approved, purpose built manoeuvring area.
Click below to find out more about what happens on a CBT, Module 1 or a Module 2.
CBT Course Details
The CBT course usually lasts a full day however can take longer depending on how fast you learn. There are 5 elements to the course:
Introduction and safety equipment lesson (Element A)
Controls and Maintenance (Element B)
On-site Training (Element C)
On-road theory lesson (Element D)
On-road lesson (Element E)
You will move on from one element to the next when your trainer is satisfied you have understood the objectives of the session and also shown practical skills to a safe basic level.
Once completing a minimum of 2 hours on the road, you will receive a DL196 certificate that will let you ride up to a 125cc motorcycle with L-plates.
This will be valid for 2 years, when this expires you will need to complete the course again unless you have gone on to pass your test.
See below for more information about what each element entails.
