The training makes sure you ride safely on your own when you hire a scooter or while you practice either for your full moped or motorcycle test.
Is a CBT a Test?
CBT is not a test that you pass or fail and after you’ve completed CBT, you can ride a:
moped if you’re 16 or over
motorcycle up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW if you’re 17 or over
You must use L plates which are provided by Wheels to Work Silverstone.
Your CBT certificate lasts two years. You either need to take your CBT again or you must pass your full moped or motorcycle test.
You can be fined up to £1,000 and get up to 6 penalty points for riding without a valid CBT certificate so make sure yours is always up to date.
Do I Always Need a CBT to Ride a Scooter?
There are a few occasions when you do not have to take a CBT, these include if you:
want to ride a moped (up to 50cc) and you passed your car driving test before 1 February 2001
want to ride a motorcycle and have a full moped licence from passing a moped test since 1 December 1990
have a full motorcycle licence for one category and want to upgrade to another
To find out if you need a CBT and what licence you need, the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) has a great site that lets you put in your details to see if you need a CBT and can even recommend some MCIA approved training centres near to you.
