RideTo partners with a great motorcycle training school based right in the centre of Haywards Heath called Bikesmart, so if you live in Haywards Heath or a neighboring village in West Sussex, Bikesmart is the best place to learn to ride and get your CBT certificate!
A one day CBT training course at Bikesmart will cost you just under £150, which we think is a small price to pay for the freedom of being able to ride a motorbike!?
As long as your instructor see’s that you have mastered how to control a bike during the one day course you will be issued your CBT training certificate at the end of the day.
Safety is always the main priority when riding a motorbike, but especially when learning to ride when you may not have quite gotten to grips with how to control or maneuver the bike yet.
Our partner schools all offer slightly different CBT training packages, be sure to check whether full gear is supplied or whether you will need to bring your own with you.
In all cases you must turn up in thick trousers such as jeans - these mustn’t have any rips / holes in them though! You must also wear sturdy boots that cover your ankles, walking boots or leather ankle boots are fine or motorcycling specific boots if you have some.
If you don’t wear these you may be turned away from training and be told to re-book, so make sure you don’t do this and have to pay twice! You can always buy any gear you don’t have from the wide range we stock over on the RideTo Store!
Bikesmart CBT Training school supply you with a helmet, gloves and jacket to wear on the day of training all included in the price, so you don’t have to spend lots of money before you have even passed your CBT.
When/if you decide to ride after you have completed the CBT training, you will need to legally purchase and wear your own UK safety rated helmet but that is in fact the only legally required piece of gear you must wear, after you have passed, when riding on UK roads.
Other protective items are worn by choice however we would highly recommend that your whole body is covered by adequate motorcycle specific items such as gloves, jackets, trousers and boots. There are so many different styles out there to suit every rider and to cover all budgets - so there is really no excuse
