Glasgow CBT Training

Taking your CBT Training in Glasgow couldn't be easier. Scotland's largest city has the blend of a busy city centre, quiet residential roads and country roads in the suburbs, perfect for motorcycle training. RideTo CBT Training covers the whole city including training areas such as Gorbals, Bridgeton, Rutherglen, Govanhill, Finnieston, Shawlands and Parkhead.

RideTo partner schools locations are easily accessible from Glasgow centre, Bridgeton, Dalmarnock and Rutherglen rail stations and road access via M74 and A74. South of Glasgow in East Kilbride, which is accessible via East Kilbride and Hairmyres rail station and A726/Queensway via road.

Getting onto two wheels doesn't need to be complicated. The first step is to ensure that you have an appropriate licence to take your training. You will need to have and present on the day of your training either a UK provisional licence, full driving licence or EU licence with D9 counterpart number. Unlike, passing your driving test, you do not need any prior experience on a scooter, moped or motorcycle but we do ask that you're able to ride an adult-sized bicycle. Whilst it's obviously a different experience to riding a motorcycle, the basic balance and understanding required are helpful. However, if you feel unsure about passing your CBT Training first time around, we advise taking an Introductory to Motorcycling course.

If you are still unsure of What a CBT Test Is or you want to know whether you can take a CBT test then look no further than our guides section.

Scooter or Motorcycle?

When you decide you want to get a provisional motorcycle licence and take your CBT training in Glasgow, the next step is deciding what kind of two-wheeler you would like to ride.

If you favour practicality and ease of use, then your 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 under-seat storage, which in many cases doubles 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 in the future, you’ll surely want to go for a 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 Motorcycles 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 motorcycle training centres in Glasgow will be able to provide you with a suitable machine for your CBT test.
