How do I complete my CBT in Portsmouth, Hampshire?

Your CBT test in Portsmouth 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.

What is a CBT?

For those that are unaware, we are more than happy to provide a brief education regarding CBT tests in Portsmouth, and explain as to why they are so important. Having first been introduced in December 1990 by the government, the acronym stands for Compulsory Basic Training; the thought process behind its conception was to try and combat a rising number of accidents involving either motorcycles and mopeds. Not only this, but its aims also included improving the overall competency of those that rode two-wheeled vehicles. When you come to Book CBT Now, you will have the opportunity to browse through various test-taking opportunities across the country - if you would like to book your space now, we invite you to do so on our website.

Is Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) really a test?

Here at Book CBT Now we want you to fully understand what is required before you go on to undertake your CBT test in Portsmouth. Although the word 'test' is used, this is misleading; in actual fact, you will not be examined, but rather your ability evaluated by the instructor throughout the day.

Subsequently, if you are deemed to have the required competency level, you will be awarded with a pass certification, known as a DL196 certificate. However, this certification does not last indefinitely - its validity will expire after two years, after which you will be required to renew your CBT, unless you have taken and passed a full motorcycle A1, A2 or DAS  test. For anyone that would like to read further regarding the specific details relating to CBT tests, we encourage you to take a look at our dedicated informative page.
