We have tried to include as much information on this site as possible, to make it as clear as possible how to proceed and get a motorbike license or CBT. We understand that it can all be very confusing, so please do give us a call in the office if you are not sure how to get a motorbike license, or what to do next or to talk through what you are hoping to achieve.
Q: “Can I drive a moped on a full car license?”
A: If you passed your test before the 1st of February 2001, you can ride a 50cc moped without L plates or CBT training. However it is advised that you complete CBT training.
Q:”Do I have to do all the training days in a row (It sounds exhausting!)”
A: No you don’t. We spread the course over 2 weeks, to ensure that should there be any mis-hap on your module 1 test, that there is adequate time to cancel the module 2 test and avoid losing fees. Motorcycle training courses are also structured to your convenience as far as possible.
Q:” Why can’t I do my module 1 test in my home town?”
A: We have to travel to module 1 test sites, as the DSA neglected to build any MPTC sites near any of our home sites. However, this is not a problem because the off road element is a fixed test, regardless of where you take it. It’s the same everywhere! Additionally, you benefit from extended road rides to and from the test centres, giving you a wider variety of road riding experiences.
Q” Are all your motorcycle training fees fully inclusive of ALL costs?”
A: Absolutely. Without question. YES.
Q:” Do you cater for female motorcycle students?”
A: We have great experience of training female riders and strive to organize female only training groups wherever possible. In fact we are quite proud of our track record in this area 🙂
Q:”Do you organise the motorcycle theory test for me?”
A: We can do, especially when we need to arrange a complicated schedule for you. Or you can do it yourself, using the links we provide on our web site
Q:”Can I do motorcycle training at the week ends?”
A: Yes you can, but obviously these are busy days for us so a as much notice as possible please, especially in the summer!
Q:” Can I do my motorcycle test at the week end?”
A: Yes you can. Module 1 tests can be booked on Sundays if we are given enough notice (they are rare). Module 2 tests however are always week day events.
Q:” Is the CBT a TEST? – what happens if I fail?”
A: The CBT is not a test, it is a training day. So you cannot fail it! However, you will need to reach a minimum standard of skill and competence as judged by your instructor before being allowed on the roads.
Q:”What happens if I fail my module 1 test?”
A: You will have to wait 3 working days before taking another test, so no big deal with this one. Retake fees include your test fees and a fee for bike hire / instructor time to take you to test.
Q:”What happens if I fail my module 2 test?”
A: You will have to wait 10 working days before retaking this test :(. Retake fees include your test fees and a fee for bike hire /instructor time to take you to test.
