Can I Pass a CBT Test With a Provisional Driving Licence?
Yes you only need to have a provisional UK driving licence in order to be able to complete a CBT test. Make sure you apply for one in plenty of time as you will need the physical licence to hand on the day of your training.
Failure to bring it with you will mean you cannot start your training and you will have to book and pay again.
Although this means you don’t have to already know how to drive a car in order to learn to ride a moped, scooter or motorbike (see below regarding age restrictions) you will need to have good knowledge on The Highway Code before you attend your training.
Add a Highway Code guidebook to your booking at the Checkout page on RideTo.com or read up online to check you know all of the rules of the road.
Do I Need to Bring My Own Gear to a CBT Test in Cannock?
Every CBT test school will provide you with a bike to learn on for the duration of your training day.
This could be a moped if you’re only 16 or an automatic scooter or manual motorbike if you’re 17 or over - you can choose which you would prefer to learn when you make your CBT test booking through the RideTo booking platform.
In regards to protective clothing and gear such as a helmet and gloves, each CBT test center offers slightly different packages.
RideTo have made it really clear which training schools require you to bring your own helmet, gloves and jacket by displaying ‘Own Kit Required’ over the schools profile photo in the search feed once you’ve entered your postcode.
If this isn’t displayed on a schools image, you can then look at the icons in the schools profile listing to see whether a helmet is provided and/or gloves and jacket.
All learner riders must wear suitable boots and trousers even if the above (helmet, gloves, jacket) is all provided.
This includes boots that are sturdy and hard wearing which cover your ankles for ultimate protection and thick trousers such as jeans or motorcycle trousers to protect your legs and keep you warm. Read our clothing guide for more information.
What Can I Ride After Completing a CBT Test?
In the UK 16 year olds can only ride a 50cc moped until they turn 17. From their 17th birthday, with a valid CBT licence, they can then choose to ride any scooter or motorcycle that has an engine power of upto 125cc.
This can be manual or automatic and also includes electric motorbikes with an electric motor power upto 9kW.
