Not quite up to speed, but good enough for a pass with a driver fault…
If the truth be told, we are not the place to come if you are expecting CBT training to be a walk in the park, leading up to a guaranteed CBT certificate at the end of the day. Compulsory Basic Training was introduced to reduce the casualty rate amongst young and inexperienced riders – if you are in either both of those categories, you may want to stop and consider for a moment what you are getting involved in.
During this day, we have to teach you to ride a motorcycle or scooter safely, to the required standards as demanded by the DVSA. This is not a very high standard, but we make no secret about the fact that we are very strict about who gets to go on the road. Everyone learns at different rates, so it is impossible to say until we get stuck in exactly who is going to have what challenges to overcome.
However: Be warned… if you do NOT drive a car, or no previous riding experience to CBT standard, this can be a very difficult day. It is essential that you arrive on the day with a working knowledge of the highway code and to have done some kind of studying on the subject of driving in the UK.
We expect you to take responsibility for this in advance of your training day, to help enable us to get you through the CBT in one day if possible. If you don’t make this effort, it might very well result in you having to do more training, spend more money and take longer to get on the road.
With your CBT training in Milton Keynes, you can expect to go through the entire CBT syllabus, as detailed by the DVSA. CBT Training should start at 8:30 to 9:00 am and not finish until 3:30 pm at the earliest, or 5:30 pm /6:00 pm if you are in a second group of students going on the road.
If you decide to do your CBT training elsewhere, these are just a few things to look out for to help you ensure that you are getting what you have paid for and should be taught!

Someone once said that we are defined by problems… our ability to overcome obstacles, face difficulty, prevail and push through difficulties is what gives us strength, confidence and ultimately helps us to grow and develop as healthy human beings. How can that happen if you shy away from a challenge? How can that be possible if you just give up when things get hard?
Motorcycling is a rewarding, rugged, outdoor activity for those who enjoy engaging in skillful activities, adrenaline sports and life’s more exciting pursuits… If you want to pass the motorcycle test,you gotta commit and dig deep! We are here to help you on that journey and this is what makes our own journey so interesting…
If you never give up, you’ll get there in the end and pass the motorcycle test with flying colours. Our recent student Sam, pictured above, has just passed her module 2 motorcycle test with us, having had a bit of a struggle getting to grips with module 1, which was more of a test of her ability to control exam nerves than demonstrate any skill, which she had relentlessly trained and honed.
With some special tuition from our Fearless Training program, we were able to effectively deal with this issue in a short time. We are very proud of her achievement and quite frankly, Sam is a pleasure to ride with, as she has learned so much along the way. Fearless Training is unique to Rebel Dogg Riders, ask us about this special program if you think you will find any aspect of your motorcycle training overly stressful. We want you to pass the motorcycle test first time and have the tolls to make this possible!
