BC Motorcycle Training

Our Training


Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is a training course designed to teach the basic skills required to ride on the road safely.

The CBT is not a test and cannot be failed, it is a one day course.

If your instructor is happy that you have completed all the elements to a competent level you will be issued with a certificate.

We have male and female instructors and are fully qualified and experienced. They will make you feel at ease and ensure that you have an enjoyable day.

On completion of your CBT at the age of 16 you can then ride a maximum of 50cc with L plates, at age 17 you can ride a maximum of 125cc with L plates.
