If you wish to become a DVSA assessed CBT motorcycle instructor, qualified to deliver Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) courses and instruct on the Direct Access Scheme (DAS) for an approved Training Body (ATB), or even open your own ATB, then we have the course for you.

Our CBT motorcycle instructor package at Amesbury, which is delivered by the founder of Phoenix Motorcycle Training with 25 years experience in the industry, helps to prepare you for your Instructor assessment. The course has been running for over 18 years and has proven to be very successful with candidates achieving very high first time pass rates in the assessment.

Essentially, at present there are three levels of motorcycle instructor.

Down trained CBT1
Trained and assessed by a qualified instructor and permitted to train at Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) level only within the ATB that trained you.

Attend the DVSA centre and pass a rigorous two day assessment. This permits you to train at CBT level and down train other new instructors. This is the minimum qualification to hold an Approved Training Body Status (ATB).

Once already qualified as a CBT1C (cannot progress directly to DAS) attend DVSA Centre and pass a further half-day assessment. This permits you to train DAS in addition to CBT.

Of course, you will need to prepare for the DVSA assessment, by either, being trained by an ATB over a period of time to learn the necessary skills and knowledge, or attend a CBT Motorcycle Instructor Training Course.

'I was very impressed with all aspects of the running this course.. The dates were resceduled a number of times due to Covid, but communication was always excellent. Pre-course work books and information was extensive and arrived in plenty of time. The practical elements of the course was very well delivered. I particularly enjoyed delivering the training to live students.

Instructor candidate teaching under supervision

Our instructor training centre has everything you need. Prior to the course, you will receive your study pack, including, bespoke instructor training notes, CBT lesson plans and information about the DVSA assessment and running an ATB. This will enable you to prepare for the actual course. You will spend an Intensive five days at our training centre based at Amesbury Wiltshire. The course will consist of instructional techniques delivering the Compulsory Basic Training Course (CBT), under instruction from your experienced tutors, including giving on road tutoring practice via radio. At the end of the week you will be advised whether you need further training before applying for the assessment.

Further training

Depending on how well you have progressed you may need further practice before you apply for an assessment. We can arrange for further training at our mutual convenience so that you are well prepared for the assessment. The length of this further training depends largely on how often you can make yourself available..

Once ready, you can arrange at your convenience, to attend the CBT two day assessment. On successful completion of this assessment you may apply for your Certified Motorcycle Instructor Certificate for CBT, seek employment with any approved Training body (ATB) or even start your own ATB. Once you have passed the CBT assessment you may then apply for your DAS assessment, a half day assessment at the DVSA centre.


We charge an all inclusive £950.00 for the initial 5 day course. Fees do not include accommodation. At present there are no fees charged by the DVSA for the assessments. Individuals will be responsible for overnight accommodation charges.
