Which Training Course is right for me?

At SL Motorcycle Training, we offer all available motorcycle courses, from CBTs to full DAS courses, please see below for more information regarding each course:



CBT (Compulsory Basic Training): 

Compulsory basic training (CBT) is a course you usually have to take before you ride a moped or motorcycle on the road.

The training makes sure you can ride safely on your own while you practise for your full moped or motorcycle test.

CBT isn’t a test that you pass or fail.

After you’ve completed CBT, you can ride a:

  • moped if you’re 16 or over
  • motorcycle up to 125cc and with a power output of up to 11kW if you’re 17 or over

You must use L plates (L or D plates in Wales).

You must pass your full moped or motorcycle test within 2 years, or you have to either take CBT again or stop riding.
