Bennetts free CBT

Motorcyclists could win one of 90 free Compulsory Basic Training courses (CBT) as part of Bennetts’ ‘Ride Free’ campaign before the January 31, 2021 deadline.

Bennetts celebrated their 90th year in 2020 by starting a mission to help inspire, encourage and educate new or returning riders on the benefits that life on two wheels can offer.

By heading to, aspiring and returning riders can access a range of information on how to get started, which motorcycle kit to choose, trusted reviews on security products, combined with top tips and guidance on what bikes to get and how to pick a good one. The dedicated online portal is also the place to apply for the 90 free CBT courses.

Applying to win a CBT course takes just a couple of minutes, requiring a few details and asking why the applicant wants to ride. The successful applicants will be notified within ten working days of the campaign coming to an end, after rigorous judging from the panel that includes former Olympic snowboarder turned presenter, Aimee Fuller.


The CBT courses are managed by Bennetts’ campaign partner, RideTo, who work with a UK nationwide network of trusted training centres. They will schedule the courses during the first half of 2021 (Covid restrictions permitting) and will also offer applicants the opportunity to save £10 off a CBT booking.

Bennetts PR, Brand and Events manager, Luke Brackenbury, said: “From the applications so far, it’s clear that there are a lot of people who want to start riding motorcycles: our judge, Aimee Fuller, certainly has got a tough job on her hands to choose the 90!

“Even more exciting for motorcycling is the spread of ages of applicants that want to get behind some bars, and that’s why Bennetts is already working on a second phase of Ride Free to continue to help people get more from motorcycling.”
