You should be aware that, once you have completed your CBT Test in West Thurrock, it shall remain valid for two years. If, after two years have expired and you have not gone on to complete your training and take your full motorcycle certification, then your DL196 will no longer be valid. However, you will be able to book another test through Book CBT Now.
Here at Book CBT Now, we want all of our clients, prospective or otherwise, to understand what CBT training is, what it entails, and why it is so important. Technically speaking, it is not a test - when you complete your CBT training, you will be awarded with a pass certification known as a DL196. You are able to take the CBT course once you have either turned sixteen if you are riding a moped, or seventeen if you are the owner of a motorcycle which is up to 125 cc.
Once you are CBT accredited, you will be able to ride for up to two years; after this, your CBT will have expired, and if you have not by then taken your full motorcycle test, you will be required to re-take. For anyone that is looking to find out more regarding the CBT tests that we source for clients, you can do so on our website.
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.
