About Go Bike Motorcycle Training
Go Bike CBT & Motorbike Training School for your CBT Course Compulsory Basic Training in the South West since 2015.
The CBT Course is a programme of instruction, safe practice and assessment for new riders wanting to ride a scooter or geared motorcycle.
It is the first step to two wheels and must, by law, be taken by any new rider before they ride on the road using L plates.
You have to be at least 16 years old to ride a 49 cc machine and 17 years old to ride a 125 cc scooter/motorcycle.
Dont worry if you have never ridden before as the CBT course is aimed at complete novices with no experience at all.
Usually a CBT course will be completed in a day, however the pace is set by the ability of the student so it could take less time, on the other hand it could take more the focus on the course is to get you on the road safely, confidently and knowledgeably.
If you are not used to it, and have never ridden sometimes the CBT course can be intensive and tiring.
Some riders feel that this one day CBT course is too short a course with not enough riding on the roads with an Instructor.
We will take you through all elements of the course at your own pace, there is no time limit and no test at the end of the course!
However naturally there will need to be a cut off point during the day where your Instructor may invite you back again on a different day to complete your course
