Where Can I Do a CBT in Chesterfield?

In Chesterfield, you are only 10 miles from a local CBT test centre. KK Rider Training are half an hour drive away or a train and bus ride away, located a few minutes walk from Kiveton Bridge Station.

Providing you with a bike to learn on, a helmet to wear as well as gloves and jacket hire for the duration of your CBT course, you will be in good hands at KK Rider Training.

ATB Rider Training are also worth checking out as an option for your CBT test, they are based in the neighbourhood of Greenland in Northwest Sheffield.

How Much Does It Cost to Learn to Ride a Motorbike in Chesterfield?

The initial cost of learning to ride is getting your CBT booked in, the price of a CBT test varies from school to school, around Chesterfield expect to pay between £170 and £200.

If your instructor witnesses you can safely ride a moped, scooter or motorbike during your CBT test, you can then legally ride a bike on UK roads once they have given you your CBT certificate at the end of the training day.

Next you will need to sort out a bike to ride on. Unless you are sharing the use of a bike with someone else or have been gifted one, you will need to buy or hire your bike of choice.

The price of a motorbike can vary dramatically from £500 for something older and secondhand to multiple thousands for a new 125cc motorbike.

You must legally get insurance for your bike before you start riding it and this price is based on how much your bike is worth as well as other factors such as where you park it.

Your bike must also be taxed, but luckily for something under 150cc this only costs £20 a year.

If your bike is secondhand and over 3 years old, an additional cost is a need for a yearly MOT (approximately £30) and if anything shows up as faulty you will need to pay for repairs to keep the bike road legal.

The last cost is the price of getting kitted out with safety clothing. The only legal item to wear in the UK is a ECE 22.05 rated helmet, you can pick one of these up from the RideTo Store for as little as £49.99.

CE rated gloves would also be highly recommended and well as a proper motorcycle jacket and boots, styles and prices vary grateful depending on your personal preference.

Steps to Learning to Ride a Motorbike

The first step is to complete a CBT, this enables you to ride anything upto a 125cc engine powered motorbike if you are 17 or older.

There are other restrictions with a CBT licence such as not being allowed on motorways, being unable to take passengers on the back and having to have a L plate displayed on your bike.

If you want to ride without restrictions, the next step is to complete a Full Licence course. If you choose this route you will need to complete a theory test followed by the course itself which is a multiple day course consisting of 2 practical tests.

The type of bike you can then ride is based on your age. Anyone 24 or over can ride any motorbike on an A licence.

Those who are 19-23 are limited to an A2 licence (up 35kw bike) and if you are 17 or 18 you are still restricted to a 125cc as you were on a CBT licence, but you can ride on motorways, with a passenger and without an L plate.
