Which course do I choose?
Rider Training NZ has three options – a combined ‘Training, Practice and Test CBT1+2hr and CBT1Plus’ or a ‘Test Only CBT1’ for people who do not wish to take any training or have done a recent Rideforever Course (Bronze or higher) or a test re-sit.
Although training isn't compulsory, it is recommend you complete training before attempting the CBTA Test. This will ensure that you have the necessary riding skills and you're fully prepared to attempt the test. The CBTA Tests are designed to ensure you're competent in a prescribed range of riding skills, which are important to keep you safe when riding on our NZ roads.
