Whether you choose to ride on an automatic or manual moped or motorcycle you will ‘legally’ be allowed to ride on either type of bike once you have completed your CBT. However, as the objective of CBT Training is to ride safely then we recommend training on the type of bike you ride once you have your CBT bike licence.
CBT Training costs vary from location to location. This is due to differing fixed costs for the instructors with regards to the rental and purchase of equipment and premises. That’s why at RideTo we make sure that you can compare on price, cost, location, facilities and reviews.
On a CBT licence, you will be able to ride a 125cc moped, scooter or motorcycle or less, always displaying L plates with no passengers and you won't be able to ride on motorways. If you are looking to ride a larger motorcycle then you will need to take your full motorcycle licence in Bristol.
After the completion of your CBT certificate, you will need to take your theory test which comprises of a multiple choice and a hazard perception test. Following this, you will need to take training for your A1 licence, A2 licence or full A licence, depending on your age.
Motorcycle lessons in Bristol start from around £27p/hr. If you are looking to gain some extra training then consider an Introduction To Motorcycling Course which is typically a 2-hour course that can give you a taster to motorcycling. This is very popular for new and young riders.
There are different motorcycle training courses that you can take in Bristol, based on your previous experience. For complete beginners you will need to take a CBT test or maybe even an ITM (Introduction To Motorcycling) before your CBT if you have never used a motorbike or driven another vehicle before - this will give you more knowledge and understanding of how a motorbike works and how to control it and is a really useful motorcycle lesson to have under your belt.
A CBT test is only valid for 2 years so you will need to take a CBT Renewal training course every 2 years unless you then choose to complete a Full Motorcycle Licence training course. A CBT renewal is the same as a normal CBT motorcycle lesson and will last the same amount of time despite the fact you have already learnt to ride a motorcycle.
