CBT is a basic introduction to motorcycling. Before riding anything on the road you must complete this training course. It’s really quite useful to have some training and great fun to get going! If you have any concerns, please give us a ring and we can discuss any queries you have. CBT is a fun introduction to riding, with a max group size of 4 with no pressure to whizz round madly! Car drivers usually do well getting to grips with a geared bike, and their road knowledge is usually better than most 16 yr olds on the mopeds! It’ll be fun whatever level you’re at!
Full details are in the Info Pack which we’ll email to you, but as a quick guide: CBT takes place most weekends and Wednesdays at our Vickerstown Football Club site on Mill Lane, map below. Start time is 8.45am Check our online diary for availability! Email us with name, which machine, and best date.
The course typically lasts 5 hours, but can be more or less depending on your experience. By the end you need to have demonstrated you’re safe enough to continue learning on your own. Not everyone gets it in one day. If you need more practice you can return and complete it. If you’re new to the road - do some research, read the Highway Code, watch other road users, make sure you understand the basics of road layouts and markings.
Currently we carry out CBT each weekend and Wednesdays on Walney
CBT training area on Mill Lane just before LA14 3NN
Start time is 8.45am. Finish varies: about 3pm. How long it takes depends on your experience and how you learn, we can spend time as needed.
If you have your own bike that’s fine as long as it is roadworthy, reliable, legal and you can get it to the site. Don’t forget you can’t ride it to Walney without a current CBT certificate. It must be insured for use on CBT - check with your insurer, most will cover its use on CBT.

If you passed your full car test before Feb 2001 - you probably already have a full moped licence: Cat P or AM, have a look at your licence. This is for mopeds only though: max 50cc. If you’ve never ridden it’s probably still a good idea to do CBT. See here: cbt-if-you-have-a-car-driving-licence To ride more than 50cc, you are riding as a learner, you must do CBT and it’s only valid for 2 years. You can only ride a maximum of 125cc as a learner. To ride more you have to take a test.
Top class training by friendly top class guys I highly recommend Martin and Dennis if your looking at doing any motorcycle training look no further than real riders you won't be disappointed.
Great experience could not wish for better instructors!
Excellent instruction for a wobbly first timer.
Doing my bike test with great instructors made it fun; would recommend them to any one wanting any kind of license.
CBT Training course very informative and Martin provided a friendly professional approach to the whole day. Thanks again.
Fantastic group of instructors, superbly patient and make sure you pass with flying colours! Couldn't recommend them any more than I already do!
