Can I still take my CBT test in Rochdale if I don’t own motorcycle gear?
There are some minimum requirements when it comes to what motorcycle gear you should bring to your CBT test. If you do not have any protective gear, aim for a CBT test centre that offers motorcycle gear rental. You should be wearing, at a minimum, thick jeans or work trousers and sturdy boots with ankle support such as work or walking boots (no steel toe caps!).
Even if you are renting your motorcycle gear, which is usually a helmet, jacket and gloves, you are expected to arrive wearing the bare minimum we have indicated. If you do not wear the minimum requirements, you may risk being turned away and a refund will not be supplied. If in doubt, we have some great guides on our website to help recommend the best gear in today's market. With our guide, it is super easy to find the perfect protective gear to suit any style of rider!
