Did my CBT with Steve and it was terrific. It was a great day and I came away with loads of confidence.
Thanks Paul for your patience! As you know we were a bit nervous before our CBT but had a great day. You really took care of Lisa and me and nothing was too much trouble. Much appreciated. Em x.
I did a further 4 day direct access course with Paul and passed both tests on the fourth day with no minor faults on either test. I learned something and improved each day and had a laugh at the same time. I would recommend A to Z to everybody.
Excellent equipment, facilities and bikes. Would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
I’ve done CBT and direct access course with A-Z, just passed my test. I have great time learning with Paul. Thanks Steve for rearranging days and times to suit me. Great time, great people, good price !!!! Thanks guys !!!
I just did my CBT training with Paul this morning. My nerves this morning vanished very quickly with Paul’s training. A very enjoyable experience . I’ll definitely be booking with you for my full bike licence
My mum bought me my CBT for my 17th birthday. I was very nervous but passed first time thanks to Steve.
We intend our CBT Medway course to be a practical but fun day for new riders. The day is a course not a test so the pressure is on us to help you through it.
Conducted initially in the relative safety of an area of hard standing away from the road, your CBT starts with the very basics – machine controls. Where and what they are and how they work.
After that we move onto bike handling and manoeuvring; developing a good understanding of the machine and its characteristics.
Finally as the day progresses (and assuming all goes to plan!) it culminates with an on-road ride to gain experience in various road traffic situations before leading to the issuing of your CBT (DL196) certificate. Once issued your CBT becomes valid for two years.
If you don’t pass your test in that time then you will need to renew your CBT, which you can do every 2 years (renewing riders receive a FURTHER DISCOUNTED RATE from our normal published price – please phone for details).
Having a CBT certificate effectively validates your licence meaning you can ride a 49cc moped when you’re 16 and up to a 125cc motorcycle when you’re 17 providing you ride with L-plates.
Without an up to date CBT certificate your licence is invalid and likewise your insurance too since you no longer have a legal licence to ride!
If you obtained a full car licence before Feb 2001 then you are exempt from needing a CBT certificate for riding a 49cc moped.
Before starting your course we will need to see both parts of your licence. We also expect you to demonstrate good balance so you must be able to ride a bicycle.
A good working knowledge of the Highway Code is essential for your own safety and that of other road users. We place particular emphasis on knowledge surrounding traffic lights, junctions, roundabouts, crossroads and pedestrian crossings.
You are welcome to use your own bike but you don’t need to since we’ll supply a properly insured moped or motorcycle (so no additional collision damage waiver fee that most schools charge). We’ll also supply a suitable safety helmet, waterproofs and protective gloves.
If you choose to use your own motorcycle then it must be taxed, insured, MOT’d (if over 3 years old), have mirrors, be roadworthy and display L-plates.
Licensed for 16 students, our off road training area is the largest in the region. We train a maximum of 4 students per instructor off-road and for safety’s sake, just 2 students per instructor on-road.
All our instructors are fully qualified by the Driving Standards Agency for teaching both CBT and Full Licence – Direct Access Scheme (DAS) courses.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT USE LESSER QUALIFIED “DOWN TRAINED INSTRUCTORS” UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
