Video: The CBT explained

We have an array of rider experience here at MCN HQ - but one thing that we all share is a love of motorcycling!

If you're new to the idea of getting your motorcycle licence the first thing you'll need to do is complete at CBT (Compulsory Basic Training). 

It’s a mandatory requirement for nearly all new riders and, as the name suggests, will give riders the basic tools they need to safely get the experience that’s needed in order to ride a motorcycle on the road. It might be that you’re after a cost-effective means of transport, with motorcycles being considerably cheaper than cars to buy, run and insure.

Or, it could be that you’ve just turned 16 years old and want your first taste of independent travel. Maybe you just want to fulfil your desire to live a life on two-wheels, because as any rider will tell you, it’s the best way.

This video above explains what’s involved in obtaining your CBT and the best places to look for your training.
