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.
Normally during a CBT test in Kingston there will be other riders with you, you will all take part in classroom and off-road sections together as well as practical sections. Taking the test in a group is a great way to calm your nerves. The majority of motorcycle training schools will also supply motorcycles for hire during your CBT test in Kingston so you do not need to bring one with you. Sometimes the price of your CBT includes the hire of a motorcycle and sometimes it doesn't, so we always advise that you check this before booking. Here at Book CBT Now we will provide you with the information for all of your local CBT companies and you can then decide which company you wish to use.
A CBT test can normally be completed in a day, but may take longer if you need more time to master the control of the motorcycle or moped. Knowing how to ride a bicycle will really help, so if you have not ridden one for a while it's a good thing to do before you take your CBT.
Read up on your Highway Code! Make sure you have read the Highway Code thoroughly. You can buy a copy of the Highway code at most bookshops or browse it online using this online link.
The price varies depending on which motorcycle training company you take your compulsory basic training with, but in Kingston will typically be between £110 and £140. 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:
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.
