The CBT course usually takes one day and is facilitated at Approved Training Bodies (ATB’s) by suitably qualified motorcycle training instructors. CBT is structured into five key elements that cover: (A) Introduction and eyesight test, (B) Motorcycle controls, (C) Practical off-road training, (D) Road briefing and safety talk, and (E) Practical on-road training.
