Hey Guys

I am considering riding a few road events this year but currently do not have a bike license. Simple question really can I ride my mont on a CBT or will I need to do a Direct access.

Hopefully its not the latter as its bloody expensive.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Scott

pretty sure you can only ride upto a 125 on cbt with L plates

I managed to do my direct access for a couple of hundred quid after cbt, a couple of lessons to know what they are looking for on the test, then go for it, think it will be worth it in the long run.

My understanding is he can only ride a bike with less than 33bhp on a cbt, unless he is younger than 21

I thought that was if you passed your test not just CBT, i'm just goingoff the top of head not looked into it.

No, if you do Direct Access and are over 21 you can leep right on to a 1000cc sports bike, but if you are under 21 you must ride on a restricted bike for two years, though things have changed with mod one and mod two but think the principal is the same.

For example, me, being mid forties, can do a cbt and ride a 1000cc sports bike, as long as it was restricted to 33bhp, thankfully I have a full license so don't need to worry myself :rolleyes:

A good friend of mine is a bike instructor but I can't quite be bothered to call him and get the exact situ on it all, but it's along those lines

hi, ive just passed my bike test and asked my instructor about this. With just a CBT you can drive a bike equal to or under 33BHP but it has to also be 125cc or under. Its a shame trial bikes cant be ridden on a CBT though, as its cost me just over 1000 to do my full licence (not taking into account days off!!!!), silly money. I know mates who have 125cc bikes that can do nearly 90mph, youd never get near that even on a jazzed up 300cc trials bike, plus there is no seat!!!!

CBT = Compulsory basic training

CBT is the test just to allow you on the public road, not a licence

When you have passed the CBT you can ride a bike up-to 125cc with a maximum of 11kW on L plates

To ride anything larger (33kW) you must be accompanied by an approved instructor at all times (on L plates)

Best to do the CBT + Direct access test as a then you can ride anything :thumbup:

Thanks for clearing that up guys.

Looks like the only option is to do Direct Access then. On te bright side be better to do it while i am in my twenties so I do not need to bother when I have a mid life crisis and buy a R1 or another Motogp/WSB derived superbike :hyper:

just passed my test today and can now get fully road legal

It probably cost around 650 from the start, that was CBT, Theory, Mod 1 and MOD 2

did mine with MMT in darlington who help to get the trials riding bad habbits out of me for road riding

took a bit longer to get a 40 year old to ride as he should be driving everyday
