RIDER TRAINING

Need a Motorcycle licence? learn to ride a Motorcycle,
Compulsory Basic Training, Accompany Rider Training, and refresher courses

The UK law states that before you can ride a Motorcycle on the road with L plates you must have either:
1) A provisional Motorcycle licence, and take a CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) test.
or
2) A Provisional Motorcycle entitlement on a full car licence, and take a CBT (Compulsory Basic Training) test. However if you passed your car driving test before 1st Feb 2001 you don't have to take the CBT test to ride up to a 49cc Motorcycle, although it is advised.

*You can practice on up to 46.6 BHP on a provisional licence if you are over 21 years of age, but only when accompanied by a fully qualified instructor.

**When you are over the age of 17 and have passed your full Motorcycle test you are licensed to ride any cc Motorcycle without L plates restricted to 33BHP for a two year period, after this period your licence is upgraded then you're free to ride any BHP Motorcycle.
