Fast track your motorbike restricted licence

You can now complete a CBTA restricted motorbike assessment straight after you have passed your motorbike learner theory test. If you complete the CBTA restricted motorbike assessment successfully you will be given a CBTA restricted motorbike certificate. This does not mean you have your restricted motorbike licence, you need to take your CBTA restricted motorbike assessment certificate to a NZTA  representative business i.e. VTNZ, to convert it to your restricted motorbike licence.

How long does it all take?

If you complete your basic handling motorbike course on the Sunday and then pass your motorbike theory test on the Monday, you can complete your CBTA restricted motorbike assessment on the same Monday after you passed your motorbike theory test. If you complete your CBTA restricted motorbike assessment successfully and have your CBTA restricted motorbike assessment certificate processed then, by the end of Monday you will have your restricted motorbike licence.

We recommend you do a CBTA restricted motorbike assessment lesson with us before you take the CBTA restricted motorbike assessment. This will bring your motorbike skills up to the standard that you are expected to be in order to pass your CBTA restricted motorbike assessment.

What's involved in the CBTA restricted motorbike assessment?

The CBTA restricted motorbike assessment is a one hour on-road assessment.

We will follow you on our motorbike 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 motorbike.
