CBTA 6R Combined coaching and Restricted licence assessment

Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) can shorten the path to your Full licence. The NZTA website explains your options:


(Other dates and times available - call us to discuss.)

1.5 hours coaching in urban and highway/rural environments, followed by the Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) Restricted licence assessment (3 hours total)

We use Cardo Packtalk bike-to-bike communication systems on the day. Please bring your own in-ear wired headphones with 3.5mm jack plug (like you might get with a mobile phone) to connect.

You must wear suitable protective equipment, an approved helmet, gloves and be in possession of your driver licence. You must ride a LAMS approved motorcycle with an approved L plate attached. WoF and Registration must be current and displayed. The motorcycle must be in a warrantable standard when inspected before the assessment. If your machine is not compliant or your clothing is not appropriate, the assessment will not be conducted in the interests of your own safety.

A motorcycle can be arranged at a small charge if you do not have access to one.

The appointment time includes setup of communications system, approximately 1.5 hours of on-road coaching, conducting the assessment, clear-up of communications system, basic feedback and result notice, plus certificate (for successful candidate).

Detailed information on the criteria for testing is available online:


Further information is available in the NZTA publication Road Code for Motorcyclists.

This package is intended for riders who have previously taken some CBTA training such as a Ride Forever Bronze course.

The appointment will proceed irrespective of weather conditions, unless the assessor deems the conditions unsafe. The candidate is expected to arrive prepared to complete the assessment.

The candidate and their motorcycle are required to meet all the applicable legal criteria, including Driving Licence, Vehicle Registration, Vehicle Warrant of Fitness, Vehicle Warrantable Condition and fitness to drive (eg free from the influence of drugs and alcohol). If the candidate fails to attend, or they or their motorcycle cannot meet these requirements without delay (less than 15 minutes), the session is abandoned, and appointment fee is forfeited.

All appointment fees to be paid within 48 hours of booking to secure appointment time.

All direct credit payments to Empowered Journeys, account 02-1269-0029660-000, name as reference.

The coaching was excellent. The instructor was personable and friendly, easy to understand, giving clear instructions and everything needed for the assessment ( and for ongoing safe riding) was covered. Highly recommended!

Once again this wonderful man Neil Stodart, with his expertise and patience, helped me achieve something I didn’t think I’d ever accomplish- my Restricted motorcycle license. I’d highly recommend doing the combined coaching and restricted licence assessment with Neil through Empowered Journeys or any of the excellent courses they offer.
