The first step in learning to ride which will allow you to ride either a 50cc moped if you’re 16, or upto a 125cc scooter or motorbike once you’re 17, is passing a CBT test. In Braintree a day's training course called a CBT will cost you between £140 and £165 depending on where you go to learn.
What Is the Difference Between a CBT and Full Motorcycle Licence?
The main difference is that there are many restrictions with a CBT licence. It’s also worth noting you must complete a CBT test before you can complete a full licence course.
Firstly a CBT test only takes one day to complete whereas a full licence course consists of multiple days of training as well as 2 practical tests and a theory test.
With a CBT licence you can only ever ride up to a 125cc motorbike (once you are 17) but with a full licence, if you’re 24 or over you can ride any motorcycle you want and even at 19 you can ride up to a 395cc motorbike.
A CBT has to be retaken every 2 years to stay valid and keep you legal when out on the roads. Once you pass a full licence test you never have to complete more training again.
A CBT licence isn’t valid for riding on motorways, or taking passengers and you have to display an L plate on your bike at all times.
There are definitely big benefits to progressing onto a full licence once you’ve completed your CBT, however the main disadvantage is the cost.
You may also find that if you’re only using a scooter or motorbike to bop around town on, there maybe no need to ride a larger bike and a CBT licence gives you all that you need!
