CBT test Grays

CBT Test Near Grays

Grays, also known as Grays Thurrock, is located on the edge of Essex only 20 miles East of central London and lies on the north bank of the River Thames.

It’s close to many UK towns such as Brentwood, Basildon and Romford so it’s a great place to learn to ride a motorbike and have the freedom of getting around on two wheels rather than taking public transport!

Conveniently only 2 miles down the road from Grays is Edventure Rider Limited, one of RideTo’s MCIAC accredited partner training schools. This is by far the easiest and quickest location to train at and pass your CBT test if you live in Grays.

Edventure Rider Limited offer CBT tests that start at 8.30 am and generally last for 6-8 hours. They will provide you with a bike to use on your training day, either an automatic scooter or a manual 125cc motorbike.

They will also provide you with a helmet, although you can of course choose to bring your own. You must remember to bring other safety items of clothing with you to be allowed to train, Find Out More Here.

Price of a CBT in Grays, Essex

If you decide to complete your CBT test at Edventure Rider Limited, the day of training will cost you £179.99.

Other training locations further afield do offer cheaper training packages but once you consider the travel times and costs to go further it may not make sense, however, decide what is best for you.

BLT based at Thamesmead, only 9 miles from Grays offer a CBT test package for £140 which also includes bike and helmet hire for the day. Getting to BLT via public transport from Grays will take you around 1.5 hours which is something to consider, as well as rush hour traffic if you travel by car to your training.

What Are The Restrictions Of A CBT?

There are a few restrictions to consider when thinking about whether you are happy to just complete a CBT test or whether you want to take further training and complete a full licence.

After a CBT, which is a one-day training course, you will be able to ride up to a 125cc motorbike, as long as you are 17 or over. That is plenty powerful enough for most people however there are some slightly annoying restrictions that don’t exist if you were to do a full licence.

For example, after completing a CBT, you will have re-take the training every 2 years unless you do a full licence, this can come around quite fast and adds up over the years…you also have to display an L plate on your motorbike which can spoil the look of your bike a bit. This is only a cosmetic issue but let's face it - you want to look as cool as possible on a motorbike right?

With a CBT you can’t ride on motorways which means on certain journeys you will have to avoid the quickest routes to get you to where you need to go if they involve motorways…making long journeys even longer.

Lastly, you cannot take passengers on the back of your bike as pillion riders after completing just a CBT test.

It really depends on why you are choosing to learn to ride as to whether a CBT is enough or whether you will eventually complete a full licence course.
