CBT1 Instructor Course



“I have recently completed both the CBT1 instructor course and also the DAS Instructors course with John from Pillings motorcycle training. I have ridden bikes for 20+ years and due to redundancy looked into turning my hobby into a living. My course was structured around the skills required to help me become a top class instructor. ”


PILLINGS CBT1 course is specifically designed to give you the skills to take and qualify as a Cardington assessed Instructor. The CBT1 course runs over 5 days and covers the entire CBT syllabus,  you will develop the skills required to work as a “down trained” instructor or if you choose, take the Cardington CBT1 instructors exam.


This qualification will open up opportunities to work as a fully qualified freelance Motorcycle Instructor or even open your own bike school if you wish.


Our CBT1 course is interactive. We believe that the use of role-play and real life practical examples creates the best and most effective learning experience. The course is based around the DVSA requirements. These are the use of Core Competencies. Using the latest coaching methods we enhance your understanding of these, therefore making you a better Instructor. In turn this makes passing the DVSA exams easier. Positive feedback is given at all stages and coaching guidance is available at all times.

After completing the course you are welcome to observe real clients on training courses being delivered to reinforce the training given. The course includes all course notes and DVSA literature.

Pillings have a great reputation and a 100% success rate for this highly sought after qualification. Demand for this course is high due to increased requirements for instructors nationally.
