When Don’t I Need a CBT?
There are a few occasions where you will not need to complete Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) to get on the road on two wheels.

You don’t need compulsory basic training (CBT) to ride on some offshore islands. This doesn’t include any islands connected to the mainland by road, including the following islands:
Residents of all other islands don’t need to take CBT, unless you want to ride in a place where one is needed. Wherever you’re planning to ride on two wheels, we’d recommend checking with the local authority to find out what you may or may not need before starting out.
