All new riders have to take the Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course before taking their motorcycle test.

After taking the course you then have up to 2 years to pass your full motorcycle test, otherwise you will have to take your CBT course again.


Do I always have to take a CBT?


No. These are the circumstances when you don't
need to take a CBT.

  • If you have passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001 then you don’t need to take CBT to ride a moped

  • You have a full moped licence from passing a full moped test after 1 December 1990

  • You have a full motorcycle licence for one category and want to upgrade to another

  • You don’t need compulsory basic training (CBT) to ride on some offshore UK islands.
