Getting a motorcycle-licence can be quite a challenge. You have to choose the right motorcycle for your needs, find out what the law says you can and can’t do and what training courses must be undertaken.
From CBT training, theory test to the standard motorbike test, GetBike can fulfill all your training needs.
We are often asked such questions – and more – by new riders who are keen to start riding but often don’t know where to begin. Our range of motorcycle training courses offer a complete answer to your training needs.
Check out our Routes to your Licence Overview to see the step-by-step guide to getting your motorcycle-licence.
We also strongly suggest that you check the legal requirements for each section of your training to avoid disappointment.
CBT is not a test – it is training. CBT is the first step towards riding a bike on the road. This is a one-day training course, which allows learner riders to ride on public roads with L-plates.
For more detailed information please see our dedicated CBT Training Section.
This motorcycle training course is designed to follow on from the CBT course. It is ideal for people who wish to develop their road skills further, or convert to a different type of motorcycle and would benefit from the extra time spent with an Instructor.
Some people may have completed their CBT course on an automatic machine and simply fancy changing to a manual clutch and geared machine, others may have found that learning to ride a clutch and geared motorcycle was just too much for their first time and settled to learn one step at a time. Whatever your reasons, Getbike’s gear conversion class is a simple step up the ladder in machine control.
Visit our Riding a Geared Motorbike page for more detailed information on taking a gear conversion course.
