Motorcycle Training

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT)

The law now requires that all new motorcyclists undertake Compulsory Basic Training before they can legally ride a motorcycle on the public highway. These courses are available at several local centres.

Once you have successfully completed CBT you can carry on and take additional training to pass your test and qualify for a full motorcycle or moped licence. Most training centres will offer training for the full test as well as CBT.
