CBT IS training. It stands for Compulsory Basic Training.

£120 is way too expensive. Try a different school.

Ditto what eatcs01 says

You're being ripped off, the CBT is a whole course, you're paying for Compulsory, Basic TRAINING, ie you've already paid to get the certificate, you shouldn't be charged again! Get another training school (report the one you've been fleeced by to the DSA if you feel strongly enough)


Happy Riding:smile
