Learn to be a safe and confident rider

If you’re looking for detailed lessons from expert instructors, contact Avsco. Compulsory basic training is a legal requirement for all provisional motorcycle licence holders. Our CBT course will ensure that you fully understand the basics of motorcycle riding. We follow a course recommended by the Driving Standards Agency. Our course is taught by approved instructors. This course is designed to help you transition from being a complete novice to a competent rider. With our help, you can clear your CBT test without any hassle.

Industry-approved training experts

Avsco is authorised by the Driving Standards Agency as an ‘Approved Training Body’. We can provide a suitable CBT course and issue your certificate (DL196) on-site. We use the latest teaching methods and tailor each session to suit your abilities.

When you arrive for the CBT, you’ll be introduced to your instructor. We discuss your previous experience and expectations from the course. We also conduct a simple eyesight test. This includes reading a number plate at 20.5 metres. Our experts ensure that your experience is comfortable, educational and enjoyable.

Clutch conversion

If you’re used to riding an automatic motorbike, you’ll find it challenging to operate a manual gear system. At Avsco, we have designed a course to specifically train you on gear changing and clutch control. We can ensure that by the end of the course, you’ll be a safe and confident driver.

This is a whole day course you will be taken out on the road at some point when you are confident. If you book a DAS course within 3 months you will get a reduction on your DAS course.

CBT renewal

If your CBT certificate is still valid, or expired within 6 months, then you can book onto one of our Re-Take CBT Course. Whilst, we’ll still cover everything that needs to be done, we’ll endeavour to only have other people on your course in a similar position, i.e. other people renewing their CBT which makes the day go a lot quicker!

In order to book onto one of these Re-Take CBT course you will need to book in advance, ideally you should book about 4 weeks prior to when your old CBT certificate expires in order to get it renewed before it runs out.

CBT is not merely a formality. Most CBT riders, due to lack of extensive training and or experience, are riding unsafe. There is sufficient evidence to back this up. Just look at the accident rates released by the Department of Transport involving riders, particularly, novices and CBT riders.

All our instructors are Fully Qualified DAS Motorcycle Trainers, and most of our instructors are also Advanced Trainers, able to teach Advanced Riding Techniques. Book your CBT Renewal with us, we are 100% sure that you will never regret it.
