CBT Training in Birkenhead consists of typically 6-8 hours of training on one day to be road legal on two wheels. A CBT license is the first step if you want to ride a scooter, moped or motorcycle in the UK. The requirements for CBT training is that you have a UK full driving license, provisional license or EU license (with D9 counterpart number) along with a national insurance number. Apart from that, being sensible is key, if it is a cold and miserable day then make sure that you wrap up warm, as shivering on two wheels is unsafe and you may be asked to stop training. RideTo recommends for you to wear as the minimum suitable clothing, sturdy trousers such as jeans and boots (without steel caps).
Birkenhead CBT Training can be found near Birkenhead Park and can be easily accessible by rail, road and foot depending on where you are travelling from. Look to travel to Conway Park by rail or use the A552 or A554 for road access. During your training you will complete 4 of the 5 parts of a CBT off road before taking your skills trained through the day onto the roads for a 2 hour ride around the surrounding areas; Wallasey, Bebington, West Kirby, Leasowe, Brimstage, Bromborough and Frankby.
What Bike Should I Get?
After you succeed in your CBT Training you will then need to consider which moped, scooter or motorcycle to purchase. On a CBT license you will be able to ride up to a 125cc moped, scooter or motorbike as long as you are above the age of 16. If you are 16 then you will be restricted to a 50cc moped until you turn 17. If you pass your CBT when you are 16, not to worry you will not need to retake your CBT when you turn 17, you can go out and look at the top motorcycles you can ride on a CBT License.
