The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) have recently released a short video to help novice riders prepare for their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). Check out the video below:
The CBT is your first step towards getting on the road and covers the basic elements of machine control. Everybody who wants to ride a moped, scooter or motorcycle on the road has to take a CBT test (unless you passed your car test before February 1st 2001 and only want to ride a moped). The CBT certificate lasts for two years and enables you to ride up to a 125cc machine. After the time is up you must either pass the practical test or complete another CBT.
