The other two key requirements are that you must be able to speak and understand English to a good level and know the UK Highway Code.

All schools offer the same course, over 6-8 hours you will learn to maneuver, control and ride a moped, scooter or motorbike on the road.
By the end of the day, if your instructor can see you have learnt everything and are safe when riding, they will ‘pass’ you and you will be able to ride a motorbike with upto 125cc engine power (read more on this below) once you have sorted out insurance and a few other documents for the bike you choose to ride.
What Can I Ride With a CBT Licence?
After passing your CBT test, you will be able to ride up to a 125cc motorbike as long as you are 17 or older. This includes automatic mopeds or scooters and manual motorbikes.
If you took your test on an automatic bike you can legally ride a manual bike after passing, as you will still be taught how to use the clutch and gears during your training course despite whatever type of bike you choose to learn on.
If you ever feel unsure about using a manual bike after you have completed your CBT you can always look at taking a 2 hour additional course called a Gear Conversion Course.
If you want to do a CBT test as soon as you are 16 to give you freedom to get yourself around, you will be limited to a 50cc moped and can only ride upto 28mph. If you live in a town or city however most speed limits are 30mph on busy streets so this shouldn’t be an issue and as soon as you turn 17 you can upgrade to a 125cc bike.
