CBT Plus

Think Bike bag

Special offer

The Derbyshire County Council road safety team are offering Derbyshire residents who take our ‘CBT Plus’ course the opportunity to claim a free ‘Think Bike’ bag.

Who is it aimed at?

New riders – it’s designed to be completed at around the same time as the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) that all bikers must pass before they are allowed to ride on public roads.

What does it involve?

CBT Plus is a 3-hour course that shows new riders how to survive the challenges they will face while out on the road. They learn how to spot hazards and handle their bikes with greater confidence while overtaking, cornering and travelling across junctions. All CBT Plus instructors are approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

How much does it cost?

This type of training would normally cost around £90 - but Derbyshire residents aged 23 or under can enrol on a CBT Plus course for just £10 thanks to a discount offered by the Derbyshire County Council road safety team. All discounts are subject to availability and may not always be available.

To apply for a CBT Plus please complete the application form.
