Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)
We operate a strict cancellation policy. For further details please see our Terms and Conditions. We indicate the minimum age allowed for each type of bike. It is your responsibility to ensure that you book a bike that you are legally allowed to ride. Please arrive promptly, 10 minutes before the course start time. If you turn up late or have booked a bike that you aren’t allowed to ride you may be turned away and lose your fee.
PLEASE BRING WITH YOU BOOT/SHOES THAT COVER AND PROTECT YOUR ANKLES (NO STEEL TOE CAPS OR TRAINERS) AND THICK TROUSERS/JEANS (NOT JOGGING BOTTOMS). We provide helmet, jacket, gloves, high vis vest and waterproof trousers if needed. Boots can be hired on arrival at a cost of £3 per day.
Our clothing and helmets range in size from XS – XXL. You will need to provide your own clothing/helmet if your size falls outside of this range.
This is an intensive course lasting a full day which is split into 5 elements, of which the last element is a minimum 2 hour road ride. You will need a good understanding of the highway code along with a good understanding of the English language as we will be asking questions throughout the day and giving directions via one way radio communication on the road ride.
If you are completely new to riding or have minimal riding experience, we strongly advise booking a New Rider Course before booking CBT, particularly if you are taking CBT on a geared (manual) bike and haven’t ridden one before.
If you do not meet the required safety standard to finish the course on day one of your booking, the remainder of your fee will be forfeited and you will need to re-book to complete your CBT at an additional cost of £80 (cost exceptions apply if you have paid for Peace of Mind Cover)
Courses are held from 8:30am to approximately 4pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Extra dates may be added during peak months.
Dates for courses are indicated in green. Select the type of bike that you would like to use, click on your preferred date and then on the preferred time for the course. You may find that your chosen type of bike is not available or there may not be enough for the number of persons you are booking for, in which case you should select another date.
