Taking a CBT Test in East London

A CBT Test in East London is technically not a test but a 1 day of instruction with the end goal of making you safe on a motorcycle on the road. The CBT Test in East London is a full day of training lasting between 6 to 8 hours and requires a basic ability and knowledge relating to the UK Highway Code and being able to ride an adult size bicycle.

The Compulsory Basic Training course referred to as the CBT Test also requires you to have a UK Provisional or Full Driving Licence or an EU Driving Licence that has been registered with the DVLA using a D9 form.

Once completed, the CBT certificate allows you to drive a motorcycle on the road unsupervised for a period of two years, however, there are restrictions that prevent learner riders from carrying a passenger or going on a motorway.

The only other restrictions relate to age, if you're 16 years old you can ride a moped up to 50cc and if you're aged 17 or over you can ride a motorcycle up to 125cc.

Where Can I Book A CBT Test In East London?

The site in Dagenham is based at Barking Rugby Football Club and is a short walk from Becontree Underground Station and there is also onsite parking for those who wish to arrive by car. The Thamesmead site is at the Lakeside Centre which has excellent road links meaning it is possible to get there on multiple bus routes.

How Much Does a Motorcycle CBT Test cost in East London?

CBT test course prices do vary across London and the UK. Typically the closer a CBT Training course location is to central London, the more expensive the price. CBT Test course prices in East London currently range from £160 to £190 for a one day CBT Training with bike hire included.

It's important to check what other equipment is provided in the cost as not all of our instructors provide motorcycle helmet, jacket and glove rental.

If you are looking to save some money on taking the CBT course in East London, our top tips would be:

1. Think about booking the CBT course during the winter months of November - March - typically prices are cheaper in the winter.

2. If you are able to travel, look at going out of London to save money on the CBT test price. At RideTo we have over 130 training locations across the UK. If you're able to travel to Essex,Tunbridge Wells or Haywards Heath, you can save yourself £20 - £50 on the price of the CBT.

3. Bring your own motorcycle gear. Typically the CBT training locations with cheaper prices tend to also require you to bring your own gear. As you are going to need a helmet, jacket and gloves to ride after the CBT, it's a good idea to invest in these before the course and then save some money on the training.
