CBT was introduced in December 1990, and at the time the DSA was tasked with oversight and regulation. Since that date there have been some legislative changes, such as a mandatory 2-hour road ride introduced in January 1997.

Unfortunately, a lack of resources or will has allowed much bad practice within the motorcycle industry to creep in over the years. The merger of the DSA with VOSA has brought a completely different attitude, and compliance is now high on the agenda.
