The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)

is the first step to getting you on the road and requires no previous experience.
At Saltire we will provide you with a bike (Suzuki GSX-S125 or automatic scooter) and any clothing you need to borrow, except boots.

Once you have completed your CBT, you will qualify for a discount in our clothing department, so you can start building up your own bike kit.

Prices are as follows:

CBT Monday-Friday – £160

CBT Weekends – £175

The CBT was was introduced in 1990 by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with the aim of increasing skills for learner motorcyclists and improving road safety.
It is made up of five different elements, some in the classroom, some in the training yard and lastly out on the road.

Our Instructors will only take you out onto the road once they feel that you are confident handling a motorcycle, and are safe to do so. Traditionally, the CBT course is one full day, but can continue for another half day or so, depending on how individual students get on (or if the weather causes problems!)

Learners will be expected to use the roads safely and legally.  So we highly recommend that provisional licence holders read The Highway Code before undertaking a CBT.  But remember, The Highway Code is for life, not just for learners!
