If you are planning to obtain a full motorcycle licence, please note that all of our courses include a CBT on the first day where needed. If this is the case, we recommend you visit us for a 1h assessment where one of our instructors can help you find the right course.
Throughout the day you will be walked through each of the individual requirements that make up the five CBT modules, for each one you must demonstrate you are competent and safe. Once you complete all 5 modules you are issued with a DL196 certificate which is valid for 2 years and will allow you to ride up to a 125cc (depending on your age) with L plates, on the road and unattended.
If you are unable to reach the required standard on the day of your training, additional days are charged at £75.
