We offer a variety of courses to suit your motorcycling needs


Bedfordshire CBT

Compulsory Basic Training is the minimum legal requirement to enable you to ride on the road. It is not a test but a basic training course, ensuring that you have the right skills to keep you safe on the road.

The course starts in the safety of an off road site and progresses at your own pace. Once you and the instructor are happy with you basic riding skills, you then go out on an escorted ride for a minimum of two hours, with bike to bike radios, starting from a quiet village location.

At 16 you can ride up to a 50cc machine on "L" plates and at 17 you can progress to a 125cc motorcycle on "L" plates. The CBT is valid for two years. During this time you can move on to take your full bike licence, or re-new your CBT after the two years are up.
