On 1st March 2014 CBTA (Competency Based Training and Assessment) was introduced to the motorcycle licensing system.
CBTA is now offered to motorcyclists as an option over and above completing their Restricted and Full license tests through the AA, VTNZ or VINZ, and can also reduce the time it takes to progress through the license process.
See the flow chart further below to see the comparison of the standard license process and CBTA
