When you successfully complete a CBTA assessment in either stage, you’ll get a certificate to use to apply at a driver licence agency for the related licence, with no further testing needed.
CBTA is the only way you can reduce the required minimum time during the learner and restricted licence stages. The learner stage has no minimum time period you need to hold your learner licence, but you must be at least 16.5 years old to apply for your restricted licence. The restricted stage reduces the time you need to hold your restricted licence, from 18 months (practical testing time requirement) to 12 months. You can complete your CBTA full assessment when you have held your restricted license for at least 9 months. When you have successfully completed your assessment, you can apply for your full license once you have held your restricted license for at least 12 months.
To assist you in your preparation to successfully pass your assessment, Roadsafe highly recommend you complete training before attempting the assessment ride. The core competencies covered in our highly subsidised Ride Forever Bronze and Silver level courses, are based on the skills required for the CBTA assessments.
You can start training for either stage at any time after getting your learner or restricted licence, (as long as you can competently ride on the road) so you're fully prepared to undertake the assessment.
Once you have completed your training and you have practised your new skills and are satisfied that you're competent in the skills required for the assessment, you can then book your assessment ride with Roadsafe.
Training courses and CBTA assessments are undertaken at separate times, not on the same day.
Roadsafe offer riders a Pre-assessment Practise which is run one on one for one hour immediately prior to your CBTA assessment, and offers specific feedback regarding the CBTA assessment criteria. This allows you to start your CBTA assessment already warmed up, and with reduced anxiety, as you are aware of any areas for improvement. Explanations and any questions regarding the assessment can be answered, and any concerns can be addressed, to give you the best possible outcome.
Each assessment consists of the following components:
CBTA Restricted license assessment is for learner motorcycle license holders.
CBTA Full license assessment is for restricted motorcycle license holders.
Riders must progress through each motorcycle license stage: from learner to restricted to full.
