What Can I Ride After My CBT?
Once you have passed your CBT test you will be able to ride a 125cc machine, unless of course, you're under the age of 17 in which case you are limited to a 50cc machine. Unlike a car test, if you pass your CBT on an automatic scooter you will also be allowed to ride a manual bike - however, here at RideTo we always recommend learning on whatever type of machine you plan on riding.

What Are the Next Steps to Getting on a Bigger Bike?
So if you've got the first step of completing your CBT test then you're already on your way to riding a 'big bike'. Get your experience up then your next step is to take a motorcycle theory test. Whilst this is similar to the theory test you take when learning to drive, the test itself is specifically aimed at motorcycles and is made up of a theory and a hazard perception test.
After you've completed the first two steps you'll need to get yourself booked into some motorcycle training to take you through your Mod 1 and Mod 2 to get your full licence. We usually recommend around 4-7 days of training but this can change depending on your experience.
