Understanding Compulsory Basic Training

Compulsory Basic Training

Compulsory Basic Training is also known as CBT. This type of training is to teach you how to operate and ride a moped or motorcycle independently. It was made mandatory in 1990 in the UK to help reduce accidents that were caused by inexperienced drivers that did not understand how to ride safely. Compulsory Basic Training lets drivers earn their license when they have passed the practical and theory tests. The CBT will be valid for two years after you have completed it.

You Can Expect

Compulsory Basic Training offers five phases that should be completed one-by-one in sequence. You will need to finish one phase before you move on to the next. Once your instructor is positive that you have learned what you needed to learn and have mastered the level of skill needed for each level, you can move on to the next level. The phases are listed below.

– The Introduction

– (On-site) Practical Training

– (On-site) Practical Riding

– (On-road) Practical Training

– (On-road) Practical Riding

After you have finished each phases satisfactorily, your award will be the DL196. The DL196 is a certificate of completion that will make all of your driver license entitlements valid.

There are few factors to consider about the DL196. After you have earned one, the entitlements included in it will good for two years. You will be expected to finish and pass your theory tests and practical application during this time frame as well. If you do not pass both tests during this two-year time frame, you will have to retake the CBT.

You should also know that if you passed the driving test and had an active DL196 at the time or passed the car test and CBT and earned a certificate, the certificate will not expire. However this factor is for moped use. If you want to learn how to ride a motorcycle, the DL196 will only stay active for a two year period.
