  1. So, now that you’ve watched the video, what questions should you ask your
    trainer when you phone to book your CBT?

  2. I’ve been told by a trainer that even though I was riding a motorcycle from
    1983 till 1988 on a provisional licence and have held a full car licence
    since 1984 I still have to do CBT ?

  3. I’m 18 in march, and my cbt expires in june, I know I can retake my cbt,
    but what is the next step I should take to allow me to not have to keep
    doing cbt tests every 2 years?? And how does the new 19th Jan rules affect
    me? Help DSA!?

  4. Do you kit out your customers in FULL safety equipment, or is there a box
    in the corner with old helmets and mis-paired gloves?

  5. If im not 16 yet, can i still do the off road trainings or some kind of
    trainings so im ready for the CBT course when i turn 16?

  6. The CBT course covers all aspects of riding, both on and off-road, so it’s
    best to wait until you’re eligible to take it.

  7. my cbt expires at the end of march, what steps would i have to do to get
    the full licence? i was told after ur cbt expires you cant ride a bike for
    a year?

  8. To get the full licence, you will need to pass your m/c theory test and
    then both modules of the practical test. If you don’t complete this by the
    time your CBT expires, you would need to take CBT again – you can do this
    straight away.

  9. i didnt let my CBT run out re-did my CBT just before it ran out though i
    have passed my restricted 35KW test now and i was never told/heard about a
    cooldown period before you can redo your cbt the CBT lasts for 2 years and
    then once it expires you can do it straight away not on your on bike though
    since it has ran out 😉

  10. Hopefully all of it, the onus is on you! No point being on the road if you
    dont understand what the signs mean, understand the road markings and
    answer “how many types of pedestrian crossings are there!” 5 of them – read
    the book and name them all. Your a safer rider knowing all this before you
    do your CBT.

  11. There are six pedestrian crossing types. Zebra, Pelican, Puffin, Toucan,
    Pegasus and School.

  12. can i just do my cbt and teach myself to ride a 125cc bike then later on do
    the rest, or do i need to do it all first?

  13. I’ve never ridden before at all. I have had a car licence since 1997. I’m
    fairly confident that in my own time I would pick up the clutch control and
    gear change, which I think would be the hardest part, but under pressure
    I’m a bit nervous. Is this course intended for someone who has NEVER ridden
    and if not how can I get that experience legally? Is this easy for someone
    who has never ridden and lastly can you fail? Some say you can, some say
    you cant. Thanks.

  14. Once I have completed both Module 1 and 2, what is the maximum engine
    capacity of a bike I can legally ride?

  15. what do I need to know from the highway code on my CBT, I’m coming up on 16
    and hoping to take it soon after my 16th?

  16. I’m 18 and I’m just wondering if you can ride a 125cc motorcycle on a CBT
    or do I have to do the module 1 and 2 tests first ?
