CBT test or CBT training?
CBT test or CBT training, what is it? Compulsory Basic Training is the full title, shortened down to CBT and it is just that! If you want to ride up-to a 125cc bike you have to complete the course so it’s Compulsory. The basics of safe riding are taught so it’s Basic. Training, it’s a training course and not strictly a CBT test!
So what is a CBT test?
As stated the basic training course is a training course and not a test however …. The CBT certificate is valid for 2 years and once it expires you would need to take the course again! This is where the CBT test can be useful. Granny doesn’t like to be taught to suck eggs and no one wants to have to take a training course they don’t need! When your certificate is about to expire we will send you a reminder (6 weeks notice) so you can renew it for a further 2 years riding.
What is a CBT renewal?
Renewing your entitlement to continue riding is easy with Advantage Wimbledon. Here you can renew your entitlement to ride simply and efficiently. A novice would normally take a whole day to complete the course but an experienced rider much less! Advantage can cater to your needs and renew your certificate in a much shorter course saving you time and money.
