If you are looking for CBT compulsory basic training in Elgin then you have come to the right place. We have all the information here for you to find suitable CBT training and testing close to you or in the surrounding areas of Lossiemouth, Forres and Buckie. Completing your 'Compulsory Basic Training' CBT test will allow you to ride any scooter, moped, electric motorbike, 50cc moped or 125cc motorbike of your choice. All you'll need to do is get a provisional UK license, suitable clothing and then book your CBT.
CBT tests were introduced at the tail-end of 1990 and stands for Compulsory Basic Training. The thinking behind them was to try and reduce the number of motorcycle and moped accidents. Not only this, but it helps in giving people of all different ages a better basic understanding relating how to best control a two-wheeled machine.
A CBT test consists of 5 elements labelled A to E. You will do these 5 elements in order throughout the day.
The DVSA have produced an excellent short video showing you the elements of a CBT. Here is the video and below it is the description of each of the elements.
Element A comprises of talk about clothing, safety helmet and equipment. This is also when your licence and eyesight will be checked and the aims of the course outlined. Make sure to bring your glasses or contact lenses if you wear
them as you will need to read a registration plate at a distance of 20 metres. You will also learn:
Element B introduces you to the machine and its controls and includes:
Element C is the main part of the course and takes place on an approved training site (CBT pad). This is when you will learn to:
Element D is a return to the class room prior to going out on the road. You will get a full briefing explaining:
Element E is where you put all the above into practise by riding on the road. You will go out on the road with an instructor two at a time with a radio link. You must do at least two hours of road tuition, which must include doing
a U-turn and emergency stop. At the outset the instructor will give plenty of guidance and help, but towards the end of the time on the road the instructor will be looking to see if you can get safely from one place to another without hurting
yourself or anybody else.
In the twenty first century, it is imperative for a business to not simply be professional in the service it provides; it must also have a pristine customer care system in place.
