Loughborough School of Motorcycling`s Price List for Compulsory Basic Training (C.B.T.)
Compulsory Basic Training (C.B.T.) was introduced back in 1990 to try and reduce the very high accident rate among new (And born again, for that matter) bikers. C.B.T. must be completed before a rider is allowed to ride on the road with L-plates and on a machine of no more than 125cc with or without gears.The DL196 Certificate that is issued on the day if successful, is valid for a period of 2 years.

It is now a requirement that all students have some basic understanding of the Highway Code prior to booking a CBT, this will ensure you are adept to basic road signage making the road portion of the CBT a little less daunting for you.
If you want to see how much you know, you can find a short quiz HERE. You should be looking to get 100% on this quiz, so please take the time to research some of the answers if needed.
We understand that you might be wanting to test the waters, or two wheels so to speak so we do offer a taster lesson and we do cater to those with their own bikes. Please ensure that if you are using your own bike it is insured, taxed, and displaying the relevant and road legal ‘L’ plates.
