What Is A CBT Test?
A CBT is the minimum training required to be able to ride a motorcycle or scooter on the road in the UK. Another good thing to know is that CBT actually stands for Compulsory Basic Training. This means it isn’t actually a test at all, but a progressive training programme designed to ensure you’re safe and prepared to ride on the road.
The training usually takes 6-8hours and takes place over the course of one day. Although this isn’t a test, if you’re unable to demonstrate you have learnt the separate elements that the instructor has taught you, you may be asked to come back for further training.

What Can I Ride On A CBT?
Once you have passed your CBT test and have a fresh CBT certificate you will be able to ride either a 125cc or 50cc machine depending on your age.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that you cant have fun on a low powered machine… you’ll be pleased to know that over the last few years the major manufacturers have turned their eyes to the smaller capacity machines. This means there is a whole host of brilliant bikes to choose from, no matter what your style.
As always, do your research into what type of bike is for you. Then head out to a dealership and book yourself a test ride, you’ll soon find a bike that really stands out to you.
Buying a second-hand bike as a novice can be a little trickier but read our helpful guide before you head to view a bike and you’ll be just fine.
