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.
Compulsory basic training (CBT) has 5 elements:
- Introduction and eyesight check
- Practical on-site training
- Practical on-site riding
- Practical on-road training
- 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
