CBT: Compulsory Basic Training

  "The first step on your two-wheeled journey."

Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is a mandatory course for all new riders in the UK. It's designed to teach the basics of motorcycle riding, including handling, safety, and road awareness. The CBT must be completed before you can ride on public roads, even with L plates.

Motorcycle Theory Test

  "Knowledge is power – especially on the road."

After completing your CBT, the next step is the Motorcycle Theory Test. This test covers road signs, traffic laws, and rider safety. It's crucial to study the Highway Code and practice hazard perception to pass this test.

Practical Tests

  "Proving your skills on the road."

The practical tests are divided into two modules. Module 1 tests your ability to control the bike in various maneuvers, while Module 2 assesses your road riding skills, including interaction with other road users. Passing these tests is the final hurdle to obtaining your full motorcycle or moped license.

Choosing the Right Motorcycle

  "Find your perfect ride."

Choosing the right motorcycle is crucial. Consider your needs, such as commuting, long-distance travel, or off-road adventures. Research different types and models, and consider factors like engine size, weight, and seat height to find the best fit.

Safety Gear and Tips

  "Stay safe, ride smart."

Investing in high-quality safety gear, such as helmets, gloves, jackets, and boots, is essential for protection. Regular maintenance of your motorcycle ensures it's in top condition. Lastly, always ride within your limits and be mindful of road conditions and traffic.
