Who can take the Motorcycle Test?
You can ride a motorcycle on the road from the age of 16, although you won’t be eligible to take the full motorcycle test until the age of 19. Below the age of 19 the quickest way onto two wheels is by completing the CBT, which stands for Compulsory Basic Training. The CBT is only a basic level of training, so you will have to display L-plates once you pass your CBT, and you won’t be able to carry passengers or ride on the motorway. The CBT is only takes a day to complete, and no prior experience or training is required. You don’t need to worry about passing your theory or hazard perception tests, either.
Once you reach the age of 19, you will be eligible to take your full motorcycle test. To be able to take the practical test you will first have to pass the theory test and hazard perception. Once you pass these you have two years to pass your practical test.
The practical test is comprised of two seperate parts; Module 1 and Module 2. The first is a short off-road section, while the second part of the test takes place on the road. Here’s our guide to the practical motorcycle test.
