There’s no better way of commuting in the city than on a motorcycle or scooter, so take the first step to commuter freedom and book your CBT training in Bridgeton at one of our training centres.

When you decide you want to gain a motorcycle provisional licence and take your CBT test in Bridgeton or Mile End, the next step is deciding what kind of powered-two-wheeler you would like to ride.
If you favour practicality and ease of use, then your best best would be a scooter. Scooters have an automatic gearbox, which means you don’t need to worry about selecting the right gear while you’re riding. Most scooters also offer underseat storage, which in many cases doubles a a space to store your helmet when you’re not riding.
Scooters are very popular with inner-city riders, because of their practicality and ease of use, and you’re guaranteed to find one that’s just right for you. There are dozens of different scooters to choose from with both 50cc and 125cc capacities - even scooters with three wheels!
If you dream of riding bigger motorcycles with your full motorcycle licence in the future, you’ll surely want to go for a fully manual motorcycle. Motorcycles take a bit more skill to master, due to the addition of a clutch and gears, but once you have those mastered you’ll have much more control over the bike than you would a scooter.
Right now, these are our favourite motorcycle and scooters you can ride with a CBT.
If you need a little help choosing the right bike for you, head over to our bike guide and we’ll help you out.
Whichever you choose for your two-wheeled career, our CBT test centres in and around theBridgeton area will be able to provide with a suitable machine for your CBT test.
The school will provide the specialty riding equipment that you need for the day, such as a helmet, gloves and jacket. For your lower half you’ll want to wear the sturdiest pair of trousers you own, such as some thick jeans. You’ll want something equally sturdy on your feet, such as walking boots.
Depending upon the time of year and the weather you may also need to consider purchasing a waterproof jacket or even a set of cheap waterproof - and windproof - overalls. It’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast during the week before your CBT training just to be sure.
As you don’t have your full bike licence, then you won’t be expected to have the full range of riding kit recommended for your Compulsory Basic Training. And there’s need to worry about not owning your own motorcycle or scooter for your CBT either, the school in Bridgeton will provide you with one you can use. If you’re 16-years-old you’ll be limited to motorcycles or scooters with a capacity of no more than 50cc and a top speed of 31mph. If you’re 17-years-old and above you’ll be allowed to ride anything up to 125cc.
