Our North London CBT training centre is based in Tottenham, but is also local to other surrounding areas such as Enfield, Edmonton, Islington, Highbury, Barnet, Camden, Wood Green, Finchley, Southgate and all other area's of North London. Our CBT test site is also easily accessible from Central London & other North London areas such as Kings Cross, Dalston, Hackney, Hornsey and Finsbury Park.

Compulsory Basic Training is the first course you need to attend when learning to ride a scooter or motorbike. To attend a CBT course, you will need to be able to demonstrate balance (the ability to ride a bicycle is a good way to practice this), and also demonstrate a basic knowledge of the highway code
Upon successful completion of your CBT training, your instructor will then issue you with a DL196 form (CBT certificate). This CBT certificate is then valid for 2 years from the date of issue, and entitles you to ride any motorbike or scooter/moped (manual or automatic) up to 125cc (50cc for 16 year olds) providing you are displaying red ‘L’ Plates.
It is worth noting that successfully completing a CBT course does not earn you a motorcycle licence. In esseence, CBT is a training course which you must attend in order to enforce your provisional right to ride motorcycles as a learner. Therefore CBT North London has some general restrictions attached to it:
- You cannot ride any scooter / motorcyle over 125cc (50cc for 16 year olds)
- It is mandatory for you to display 2 legally sized 'L' plates at all times whilst riding
- You are not permitted to carry pillion passengers
- You cannot use motorways
Whilst CBT does come attached with the above restrictions, not all of these restrictions may apply to everyone, and we would reccomend individuals check with the DVLA to see which of the above restrictions apply.
Once you have successfully completed your CBT training course, your next step to obtaining your full motorbike licence is to pass your motorcycle theory test, and then decide whether you would like to sit the Direct Access Scheme (DAS)or the A2 Restricted Licence.
Do not worry if you've never ridden a motorbike before! Your instructor will be in constant communication with you at all times. The purpose of this course is to teach beginners, so just relax and remember, this is ‘basic training’, and the first stage of learning to ride. However, as much as our instructors will do their best to help you achieve your best, you will need to have the ability to have basic balance and co-ordination.
CBT Test North London
Many people refer to CBT training as a CBT test. This is incorrect, as the "CBT test" is not actually a "test", but a continual assessment of your ability to ride a scooter or motorcycle as a provisional learner. As the CBT is an assessment, there is no such thing as a guaranteeed CBT pass, as not everyone is able to attain the standards to meet the assessment standards set out by the DVSA (Driver Vehicle Standards Agency).
The 5 basic elements of CBT are as follows:
- A. Introduction
- B. Practical on-site training
- C. Practical on-site riding
- D. Practical on-road training
- E. Practical on-road riding
Further information about each section of the CBT syllabus can be found on the DVSA website
Although there is no official theory test is required for you to attend CBT, a basic knowledge of the highway code and UK traffic procedure is required, and your instructor will be asking you questions relating to the highway code as part of your CBT test / assessment. You will also be required to have an element of balance, which is usually (but not always) obtained by having the ability to be able to ride a bicycle.
Our motorbike training in North London, is ideal for people who would like to learn how to ride a scooter or motorcycle.
