Your CBT test in Reading 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 doesn't 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.
The instructors will evaluate your skills and progress in a one day course, or over a few days if necessary and once you have completed the training to their satisfaction, you can then receive your pass certificate or DL196. When it comes to CBT training in Reading, we have a wide range of different companies that are perfect for you listed at the top of this page, please take a good look to find the most appropriate one for you.
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.
