How much is the cost of a motorcycle CBT test?

The price varies depending on which motorcycle training company you take your CBT test with, but in Dumfries and Galloway or the closest towns of Dumfries, Newbridge Drive and Lochmaben will typically be between £115 and £145. Covid-19 has meant that many motorcycle training companies can only train on a 1 to 1 basis or 2 to 1 at most. This has meant many motorcycle training companies have had to increase their normal prices. There are four main things that affect the price:

  1.  Bike hire. Not all CBTs include the price of the bike hire so make sure you check if it is included in the price.
  2. Experienced or beginners CBT. If you've done your CBT before you can book an experienced CBT which usually costs less. This is because it will be shorter as you will already have been through all of the basics. Only do this if you have done at least 1 CBT and are confident riding your motorcycle or scooter.
  3.  Clothing and equipment hire. This includes your safety helmet, jacket, gloves and boots. Once again it may not be included in the price, so check first.
  4. Collision damage waiver. This is an insurance that will be offered to you before your training. It means that if you damage the motorcycle or scooter during your training then you will not have to pay for the repairs. It typically costs between £10 - £20 but is well worth having as repairs are much more than that.

Don't try to simply get the cheapest price, the quality of the training is the most important thing. Quality training will one day save your life.

Is CBT a test or an evaluation?

Contrary to popular belief, a CBT is more of an evaluation than a test; your instructor will, throughout the day, observe your abilities and, if you complete the day to the required competency, you shall be awarded a pass certificate (professionally known as a DL196). A CBT certificate is valid for two years and once you have completed your full motorcycle examination, you will no longer have to renew your CBT. However, if you do not carry on your training in Dumfries and Galloway, you will be required to re-sit your CBT test after two years.

How do I complete my CBT in Dumfries and Galloway?

Your CBT test in Dumfries and Galloway is training that you must complete before you are able to ride independently. If you are safe to ride on the road unaccompanied you will receive a CBT test certificate. Whether you pass or fail your CBT test will be determined by the instructor who will be training you on the day. If the trainer doesnt think you are ready to be riding alone you will be asked to come back for additional training until the instructor feels you are safe to ride on the road.
