Q) How long does it take to do a full course with tests?
You can spread it out as much as you like, But the Quickest way for our most popular 15 hour course.
CBT on a weekend.
1 complete day training ( 6 hours)
Half a day training with a Module 1 test in the afternoon ( 5 hours)
Half a day training with Module 2 in the afternoon (4 hours)
So that is a total of 4 days, one weekend day and 3 weekdays.
It is best to take the two tests at least a week apart.
Q)When do you do CBTs & how long does it take.
CBT courses start at 9am and usually finish about 4pm. but it depends how people have got on. On a really good day it could be 3pm finish or a slow day could be 5pm.
We run CBT courses at weekends. Mostly Saturdays,
Sundays are generally for "special "CBTs Direct access course CBTs when we often us the big bikes and cannot mix them with smaller bikes. Or One to One CBTs
Q) I am 16 and passed my CBT 2 months ago. Can I derestrict my Moped i want it to go faster.
NO, A moped must be 50cc or less with a maximum speed of 30mph ( this has recently changed to 28mph if you want to be very acurate.)
If you make it go faster, then it becomes a Motorcycle, You cannot ride a Motorcycle until you are 17. so you would be riding without a licence and without insurance, both of which are serious offences.
Q) My CBT is about to run out, Can i continue to ride until i have time to do it again ?
A) NO. You Must have a Current CBT certificate.
Q) How much will it cost to get a bike licence.
A). This is the most common Question, But this varies greatly, factors that affect it include, do you drive a car?, have you had any experience on any type of bike? do you gain new skills easily? How old are you, We have had customers in their 70s but they dont learn as fast as the 20year olds.
You can just pay by the hour but we have put together packages of hours training to give you a discount, The more you buy the less expensive they get.
The most common situation is a car driver with no riding experience, but picks up skills fairly easily.
Total cost for this example With CBT, Test Fees, Bike hire,one to one training. You need to budget £750.00. We would advise you after your CBT. But its common people in this situation to do it all for £650.00
You do also need to factor in some riding gear, we can lend you most things but you will be happier with your own.
Do It all with a Mate and you could get it down to £540.00
Q) how long does a CBT last.
A) CBT certificate lasts Two Years.
Q ) Do i need a CBT to ride a 125cc bike.
