Preparing for motorcycle training
Driving licence requirements
Participants must hold a driving licence (full or provisional) with the correct ‘Category A’ entitlement (A or AM). Those who passed a car test before February 2001, should already have ‘Category AM’ entitlement to ride a moped. A new riders training experience can be more effective with pre-CBT preparation. We recommend Learners Academy, where video and eLearning can boost understanding, before undertaking an actual CBT.
Motorcycle training dress code
CBT students are required to wear appropriate clothing. As a minimum, they must wear a helmet. They should also wear thick denim jeans, heavy jacket, sturdy boots and motorcycle gloves. Shorts, t-shirts and trainers are not appropriate. An investment in motorcycle clothing offers the best levels of protection. Most training schools can loan their students a helmet, gloves and a high-viz vest. Some also loan jackets and other items. CBT participants should check well in advance of their training day.
