CBT test Newcastle

Using our RideTo platform to book a CBT test near Newcastle will bring up two locations to choose from - Ace Motorcycle Training in Durham and A&C Motorcycle Training in Bishop Auckland.

Both are great sites to take your CBT test at, you may pick one due to its closer proximity or by what gear is included in their training package - Ace currently offer helmet hire and A&C offer gloves and a jacket.

Why Learn to Ride a Motorcycle in Newcastle

There are many perks to learning to ride a motorcycle. Firstly, after the initial costs of buying a bike and safety gear, motorcyclists can save a lot of money if they ride instead of driving a car or getting public transport.

A bike uses a lot less fuel than a car so fuel costs will be significantly lower, while parking can often be free or certainly cheaper than parking a car. You can find more information on Newcastle motorcycle bay parking here.

Bus and train fares soon add up too so you will definitely see a decrease in your monthly spend when commuting and going to social activities if you normally use public transport.

Secondly, from saving money to saving time, bikes can often get you places quicker than a car or bus as scooters and motorbikes have the ability to weave through traffic jams, which is often an issue in Newcastle at rush hour.

Then lastly our favourite reason is that travelling on two-Wheels is just more fun! The feeling you get of empowerment when riding is good for the soul and also for your mental health - be sure to get out on some country roads if you’re used to driving on busy city roads - the fresh air and rolling hills can do wonders!

What to Prepare for a CBT Test

In the lead up to your CBT test we recommend that you learn or revise the Highway Code so you can safely ride alongside other road users during the practical road riding element of your training day.

It could also be worth learning the basic theory of riding a motorbike, there’s lots of information over on our blog or on sites such as Youtube.

Make sure you check if you have the correct clothing and gear needed for your CBT test well in advance to allow you time to buy anything if needed. Look through our clothing guide for examples of what is and isn’t acceptable to wear and if you need anything head over to the RideTo Store where we stock all sorts of gear from motorcycle brands that fit all budgets!

Before you book your CBT test it’s important to check you can locate your UK provisional or full driving licence and that it is in date as you will need to take this with you on the day of your CBT test.

At least the day before your training check your travel route to the training school to see if there are any planned road or public transport closures and allow yourself plenty of time to get there. If you turn up late you will not be allowed to train, this is a regulation set by the DVSA.
