CBT for new riders
The CBT was introduced in December 1990 with the aim of reducing the accident rate among inexperienced motorcyclists. Typically conducted in one day, the course involves 5 elements, these being an introduction, explanation of the machine controls, practical riding controls and skills and practice manoeuvres in a suitable off-road area, a discussion and information about on road riding ending with a supervised ride on public roads under the control of a qualified instructor using radio communications.
Certificate of completion
A DL196 certificate of completion (CBT certificate) is issued when 5 elements of CBT are completed by the trainee. This is a legal document which validates the relevant entitlements on a driving licence/ Please note that a THEORY pass in NOT required for CBT.
A current DL196 certificate allows you to ride unsupervised on the road as a learner for up to 2 years. Depending on your age you can ride up to 125cc (under 17s are restricted to a 50cc moped), If within the 2 year period you have NOT passed the practical tests you have to come back and do CBT again
For moped (Category AM) entitlement only, if a car driving test is passed after February 2001 whilst the DL196 is still valid, or a CBT course is completed and a DL196 obtained after passing a car test, the certificate is not subject to expiry (only the moped entitlement)
