Compulsory Basic Training

For those aged 16 and over
Upon successful completion it entitles you to ride up to 50cc if aged 16, or up to 125cc if 17 and over.

It is a legal requirement to gain a CBT certificate to ride any motorcycle or scooter on the road.
(This is required regardless of what other licence you hold. The exception being for riding a moped if you obtained your full car licence before Feb 2001)

A theory test certificate is not required for CBT to be taken.  However, a good understanding of the Highway Code is required.

 A CBT certificate lasts for 2 years, in which time you can go on to take one of our full licence courses, or simply retake your CBT.
