CBT Renewal

CBT Renewal Course

This course is only for those who HAVE done a CBT course before and “wish to renew their Certificate” however, you must be an experienced rider who has been riding a Motorcycle or Scooter consistently for the last year or more. If you want to renew your DL196 Certificate but you have not been riding consistently for at least the last year, you will have to book a full CBT Course instead.

You have “up to 30 days” to renew your CBT Certificate from it’s “Date Of Expiry”. If you fail to renew your CBT Certificate “within this 30 day period” you will have to take a full CBT course again. Please note that “after” your CBT Certificate expires, it is against the law to ride a motorcycle or scooter until your CBT Certificate has been renewed or if you have obtained a Full Motorcycle Licence by then. 

 A Motorcycle or Scooter, Helmet, Gloves, Jacket & waterproofs are all included in the price of this course.

NOTE: If you passed your “Full UK Driving Test” before “February 2001” you are allowed to ride up to and including a 50cc Scooter without displaying L-plates and you are also allowed to carry passengers but if you wish to ride a Motorcycle over a 50cc and up to and including a 125cc then you must complete a CBT Course.

If you passed your “Full UK Driving Test” after “February 2001” then you must take a CBT Course (NOT a CBT Renewal) to ride any size Motorcycle.

What is a CBT Renewal Course?

 

A CBT Renewal course should be booked if your CBT Certificate is “about to expire” or if it has “already expired” but is still “Within 30 days of it’s Date Of Expiry”. It is essentially, exactly the same as a CBT Course but for experienced riders only.

If your CBT Certificate is “31 days or more past it’s Date Of Expiry” then you will need to book a “CBT” again, “NOT” a CBT Renewal.

Please note: “after” your CBT Certificate expires, it is against the law to ride a motorcycle or scooter until your CBT Certificate has been renewed or if you have obtained a Full Motorcycle Licence by then.
