Where Is the Nearest CBT Test Centre to Eastbourne?
Eastbourne is a great place for learning to ride a motorcycle or scooter as you can then go for rides along the stunning South Coast. You might be looking to pass your CBT to commute to local towns /cities such as Brighton, Bexhill or Hastings or for helping you get a job as a courier.
Whatever the reason, RideTo is the place to help you get onto two wheels!
We have a partner school located just along the coast to the East of Eastbourne - 1066 Motorcycle Training School in Bexhill. They pride themselves on being friendly yet professional and are a supportive team who have lots of experience in helping teach young and nervous students through the process of learning to ride.
Can I Do My CBT Test on an Automatic Scooter?
You have the choice of choosing to learn on an automatic scooter or a manual 125cc motorbike. You will make this decision when you book your CBT test on our RideTo booking platform; however, once you pass your training, you are not limited to only ride the same type of vehicle you learnt to ride on.
If you are completely new to riding you may find it easier to learn on an automatic scooter as you won’t have to worry about changing gears. You will still learn how to do this during your day of training though so that in the future if you decide to ride a manual motorbike you will know what / how to do it.
If for any reason you feel like you have forgotten how to change gear you can take a 2 hour Gear Conversion Course at any point after passing your CBT test.
What Licence Do I Need To Learn To Ride a Motorcycle?
If you want to ride a 50-125cc moped, scooter or motorcycle you will need to do a CBT test in order to have the basic compulsory training required in the UK which is then valid for 2 years.
After this time you will need to take the training course again unless you move onto a Full Licence (which means you can ride without some of the restrictions a CBT has and on larger, more powerful bikes, depending on your age).
Before you book your CBT you will need to have at least your UK provisional drivers licence or your UK full driving licence or EU licence with a UK counterpart licence number.
You do not need to have learnt to drive a car already, however having experience on the road with other road users can be an advantage.
You must have good knowledge of The Highway Code so if you only have a provisional licence or haven’t driven in a long time, make sure to brush up your knowledge before your CBT test!
