Cbt compulsory basic training

Since December 1990, if you want to ride a powered two wheeler on UK roads, you must, by law, complete a CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) course. Upon successful completion of the CBT course you will receive a DL196 certificate – a certificate of competence – which validates your provisional entitlement to ride a motorcycle on your Driving Licence.

Following changes to the law effective from 19th January 2013, if you are aged over 17 years old but younger than 19 years old and in possession of a valid CBT certificate, then you may only ride a motorcycle of up to 125 ccs capacity that produces no more power than 11kw (14.6 bhp).

Following changes to the law effective from 19th January 2013, if you are aged over 19 years old but younger than 24 years old you may take a motorcycle test on an A2 category bike. If you have held a full A1 category licence for two years and are moving to an A2 licence via ‘Progressive Access’ , you will not require either a CBT certificate or Motorcycle Theory and Hazard Perception test pass. However, at 19 years of age or older, you can enter by direct access as long as you hold a valid CBT certificate and Motorcycle Theory and Hazard Perception test pass.

Following changes to the law effective from 19th January 2013, the minimum age for direct access entry to a full category A licence was raised from 21 years to 24 years of age. Unless you are taking the ‘Progressive Access’ route , you will need to hold a valid CBT certificate and Motorcycle Theory and Hazard Perception test pass.
