Most learner motorcycle and moped riders must take compulsory basic training (CBT). You then have to pass your full motorcycle test within 2 years or you’ll have to take CBT again.

After you’ve completed your CBT, you can ride a moped or a motorbike up to 125cc on the road with L plates until you pass your full motorcycle test.

What is involved?

Compulsory basic training (CBT) has 5 elements:

  1. Introduction and eyesight check
  2. Practical on-site training
  3. Practical on-site riding
  4. Practical on-road training
  5. Practical on-road riding

You’ll move from one element to the next when your trainer is happy you’ve:

  • learnt the theory
  • shown the practical skills to a safe basic level

Here is a peek at how your day will look:

What do I need to bring?

Long trousers.  Jeans or similar are acceptable as long as the material is durable and hard wearing.
Strong shoes or boots that cover the ankle and are well fitting.
We can supply you with a helmet, jacket and gloves if you do not have your own, for a hire charge of £2.50 per item.
If you normally wear glasses or contact lenses, you will need to bring them to read a registration plate at a minimum distance of 20 metres (66 ft).
A valid UK driving licence.
