C.B.T. with T.S.M. is not a ‘gimme’; in other words, it isn’t just a case of turn up, pay your pennies, ride around for a bit & go home with a certificate! We pride ourselves on knowing that those who complete our C.B.T’s have proven that they have the knowledge & skill to be safe. (However, we also understand the concept: “We give you the tools, what you choose do with them…….!”)
For example, we don’t expect you to have a comprehensive knowledge of the Highway Code before you attend, but if you’ve never even seen a copy, you will find C.B.T. difficult.
The C.B.T. day at T.S.M. begins at 08:00. It finishes when it finishes! The training, with due regard to all the students attending, is structured to cater for all needs.
If you attend another school, complete C.B.T & are at home in time for dinner then, apart from the probable D.V.S.A. contraventions, you should be considering what value you have gained for your pennies. Or, more importantly, have you been given the tools to deal effectively with being a novice road user? Probably not!
