RJH -CBT Instructor
The official name of a CBT instructor is a "down trained instructor".
You will be down trained by our qualified trainer of trainers and will fully understand the five modules or elements of the CBT.
CBT means Compulsory Basic Training.
Compulsory - must do it to be able to ride on the road.
Basic - Simple, straightforward bike control, sufficient to allow the rider to ride unnacompanied by giving him or her the skills and confidence to develop further on their own.
Training - Teaching new skills. Taking a total novice, first time on a scooter or small bike to the point when they can be released into the big wide world.
A down trained instructor is restricted to teaching on behalf of the training school for whom he is licenced.
In order to progress to teach on bigger bikes the instructor must be approved by the DVSA. To become approved he/she must successfully complete a two day practical assessment at the DVSA training and testing establishment in Cardington, Bedfordshire.

RJH Summer School for Instructor Training was a massive success and everyone involved worked so hard and we had great fun and learned a lot.
Well done to Nick and Peter the two trainee instructors who did so well during the 10 day intensive course. Well presented and well planned throughout by Robert Howitt and assisted by Sylvia Eager. Everyone involved enjoyed it so much. Thanks Robert and look forward to the next one!
