CBT test Hayes

Do I need experience before taking my CBT test in Hayes?

Not at all! CBT stands for Compulsory Basic Training, which means the day is designed to train you from learning how to move the bike, all the way up to riding live roads and heading out on your own. It is the most basic level of motorcycle education, so you do not need any experience. As long as you can balance a bicycle, you’re halfway there. If you want to do some studying before your CBT, you could aim to brush up on your highway code. Knowing the rules of the road beforehand will mean you can concentrate on your riding, without having to worry about which way around a roundabout you should be going!

If you still feel like you’d like to go into your CBT with a bit more knowledge than most, you could take an ITM (Introduction To Motorcycling) course. This is a 2 hour course to introduce you to the controls, maintenance and safety checks you will need when riding motorcycles. You could also comb through our New Rider Journal to learn some handy tips and tricks before hitting the road.

Do I need to do my CBT to ride a scooter?

Absolutely. A CBT is required in order to ride any motorbike on the road in the UK alongside a provisional licence. This training is compulsory, even if you plan to do your full licence immediately afterwards to move onto larger CC motorcycles. Once you have your CBT, you can ride any motorbike upto 125cc (or 50cc if you are 16 years of age). If you are planning to take a DAS (Direct Access course) immediately after your CBT test in Hayes, make sure to prepare yourself with our article on ‘How to Pass The Motorcycle Licence Tests’. We have laid out some helpful tips, as well as showing you what you can expect when taking your full motorcycle test.
