The CBT – Compulsory Basic Training
Honda of Bournemouth Motorcycle Training Courses
Do you need to book your CBT Test? Get on the road with Honda of Bournemouth! The day is split into five parts, including initial classroom training as well as riding practice on-site and a final assessed road ride.
1. Eyesight test
After having checked your driving licence you take a quick eyesight check. Your instructor will then explain the course and give you some hints and tips about the clothing that you are best to wear when riding.
2. On-site training
After being introduced to the controls of your motorcycle you will be given the time you need to get used to the weight and feel of the bike. In addition, the instructor will also run through some of the basic maintenance that you are advised to carry out regularly.
3. On-site riding
This is where the fun starts. You will get started learning all of the basic manoeuvres. Your will be guided through pulling away and braking, slow control, changing gear and all the necessary observations.
4. On-road training
Before taking to the road you will be given a full road ride briefing. This will tell you what to expect from your road ride and what the minimum 2-hour session will include. When you are good and ready you will take to the road.
5. On-road riding
The road ride must last at least two hours and will take you on a route which will cover a range of different road types and conditions, all of which you will experience in your day-to-day riding. You will also be asked to complete a U-turn and an emergency stop during this part of the CBT.
What to Bring
A helmet which complies with BS 6658:1985. Your Honda Approved Training school will be able to provide you with this if you do not have one yet.
