CBTA Restricted Motorcycle Licence

 

CBTA Restricted Assessment

 

Once you have your learners licence, you can sit your assessment ride for CBTA 6R as soon as you feel you’re ready to.

The Competency Based Training Assessment is a one hour on-road restricted motorcycle assessment.

Our trainer will follow you on our motorcycle and communicate with you using Bluetooth communication. You will be assessed on your position, observations, cornering, U-turn high speed, road rules, signals, blind spots, and control of your motorcycle.

When you've successfully completed the assessment, the assessor will give you a Transport Agency CBTA 6R certificate. You can then apply for your restricted motorcycle licence at any time (provided you're at least 16½ years old).

You can sit the CBTA 6F assessment once you've held your restricted licence for at least 9 months.

Restricted motorcycle assessment - Cost : NZ $150 (+ $20 travel fee for Whakatane)

Restricted motorcycle assessment using our motorcycle - Cost : NZ $170 (+ $20 travel fee for Whakatane)

 

The Benefits of Choosing a CBTA Assessor

Competency-based training and assessment gives you an option to have your riding skills assessed by an approved assessor instead of taking the practical riding test.

  • it can reduce the time it takes you to gain your restricted and/or full motorcycle licence – completing the CBTA course is the only way you can reduce the required minimum time during the learner and restricted licence stages

  • it improves your riding skill levels by targeting high-risk riding behaviours, which allows for a safer road system for you and other road users

  • If you choose to do your training through an approved CBTA assessor, you'll get feedback on your riding skills and you'll get tips on how to ride smarter and safer. These improvements will help prepare you for the CBTA assessment, and help you make smarter choices on the road.
